Friendship Mixed Media Card

“Friendship is Sunshine for the Soul” and what better way to share that sunshine but to play with Little Birdie Crafts Mixed Media Sprays and Stencils. I am sharing how to just do that with 4 sprays, 2 stencils, and some flowers from your Little Birdie Crafts stash!

Here’s What You Will Need:

Begin by spraying a piece of white card stock with Gold Rush and Paprika Color Splash, dry. Cut to form a 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ tag.

Lay Crackled Stencil on to prepared tag; apply paste with palette knife. Dry. Repeat with Dot Stencil.

Stamp your favorite background stamp to tag with black ink. Set to one side.

Spray second piece of white card stock with Gold Rush, Paprika, Mocha and Lime Splash Color Splash; dry.

Die cut frame from prepared paper; adhere image behind frame.

Distress edges of prepared tag and sentiment pieces. Ink all edges with brown ink.

Spatter tag with white paint.

Adhere distressed and inked pattern paper to 4″ x 9″ card base. Add prepared tag to front of tag.

Add paper doily and prepared frame to top of card.

Place stickers at top of card.

Add bow and flowers to top of card.

I hope you are inspired to grab some of your Color Splash Sprays, stencils and flowers to create a few Sunshine Cards. Pam

Floral Heart Pocket

Hi friends! Tonya here with a heart pocket decoration that is fitting for the month of February. Since February is the month of Love, I wanted to do something that I could keep out after Valentine’s Day is over and it be used as a wall decoration. So lets get started.

Here’s What You Need:

Step 1

Gather your supplies.

Step 2

I cut from the Sizzix Heart Pocket diecut two heart and the pocket from patterned cardstock. The reason I cut two hearts out I wanted to make the back a little bit more sturdy. Also if you can’t find the diecut google heart patterns and print one off as a pattern in any size you want. All you have to do to create the pocket is cut one of the hearts in half. Once I adhered the heart and pocket together I added Ric Rac Ribbon around the back side of the heart.

Step 3

I cut a 12 inch piece of pink ribbon and adhered to the top of the heart to create a hanger. I threaded two white buttons and covered the ends of the ribbon. Next I painted both the heart and cherub chipboard pieces in Pink Ballet and Tattered Lace Chalk Paint. Once dry I embossed the heart to give it texture, lightly inked the edges along with the cherub. I cut two 3 inches pieces of each of the white lace and pink ric rac  and tied off in the center.

Step 4

I cut a piece of white lace and adhered to the lip of the pocket. Next I cut a piece of white paper trim down and added to the lace. The trim is self adhesive so no worries on trying to be neat when applying adhesive.

Step 5

I adhered the heart on the corner of the pocket, folded the ric rac and lace in half and adhered next to the heart along with a pink flower, the white rose that I  deconstructed (I only wanted to use the bud) and the cherub. I loosely added some bunched up thread for interest.

Step 6

I rolled the leftover white roses that I had deconstructed to create buds and adhered to the upper corner of the heart along with two pieces of white lace and one piece of pink ric rac and wadded up thread to finish off my heart pocket.

All that is needed now is more candy and a card and it is ready to be given as a gift and once empty it can be hung up as decoration.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!
