Love This Life – Mixed Media Palette

Hi everyone,

Saadia here with a new mixed media project. It has lots of Little Birdie Crafts beautiful flowers, glitter and texture. I hope you like it.



Let’s start our project:

I applied a diluted coat of 2 in 1 Mixed Media Paste to an oval wooden paint palette.


Next I mixed Texture Sand with Mixed Media Paste and applied it through the ‘Script’ stencil. After drying it with a heat tool, I applied the same paste through ‘Irregular dots’ stencil. 

I then applied different Color Splash sprays and chalk paints.

After that layer, I glued Sisal fiber, scrap paper and old paint brushes as I pleased.

Then, I added lots of Little Birdie Crafts beautiful flowers, buds and chipboard shapes. I heat embossed the chipboard shape with Copper Embossing Powder.

Lastly I added few microbeads, Little Birdie Crafts Fairy Sparkle glitter and a chipboard quote.

Hello friends!

This is Anila from India!

I am at the blog today with a set of cards using the Fintastic Birthday
stamp set. I am sharing two 4″x6″ cards and two 4″x4″ mini note cards.

Here’s a look brief look at them.

4″x 6″ cards

4″x 4″ mini note cards


Stamped all the images on a watercolour paper, coloured them with Zig markers and fussy cut them.

Ink blended a paper using distress inks to create the ocean look. Die-cut an oval using Stitched oval dies.

Foam mounted the die-cut on a side folding card base. Adhered all the fussy cut images to create an ocean scene. Foam mounted the sentiment.

Lastly, added few dew drops to complete the card.


For this card, I stamped the image repeatedly in black ink on a watercolour paper. Die-cut the paper using a heart die, centring one image in the centre of the heart.

Coloured the images, all in yellow and the centre one in red to highlight it. I traced and trimmed a coloured heart from a yellow cardstock.

On a white side-fold card base, adhered the yellow heart. Foam mounted the die-cut heart over it.

Lastly, foam mounted the sentiment.


On a white card, randomly added watercolour strokes to create the water effect. Stamped the sentiment around the strokes to create a box effect.

Stamped, coloured and fussy cut the image.

Mounted the panel on a 4″x4″ note card. Foam mounted the image on the card.

Lastly, to add some pop of colour, I stamped the tiny hearts all around the sentiment.


I stamped all the images on a watercolour paper. Coloured and fussy cut the images.
On a 4″x4″ top-fold card, adhered the images to create the fish tank scene.
Stamped the sentiment. Added few shadow details to the card.

That’s all for today! Hope you liked the cards. Please leave your valuable feedback in the comments below.

I would be back with some more inspirations soon.






Vintage cards with a pop of colours!

Hello friends!

This is Anila!

I am on the blog today, sharing a couple of Vintage cards with a pop of colours!

I am using the Vintage Reflections paper pack for my cards here!

I took a 6″x6″ white card base and a smaller white panel. I began by cutting a paper from the pack into smaller pieces. Distressed the edges.

Adhered, the pattern papers to the white cards. Mounted/layered the smaller matted piece on the base using foam adhesive.

I collected some embellishments like flowers, die-cut leaves using Birdcage thin cut die, a stamped sentiment, cheesecloth, sisal fibre and a die-cut doily using Ornate doily die

Here are some images of the finished card.


I made one more card on the similar lines. This time I layered a rectangle over the Square card base. Matted and mounted it the same way.

Embellished using similar elements, only replaced the doily with a strip of punched border.

I kept both the cards simple with the centered focal elements. Lastly, added a few matching sequins to complete the card.

That’s all for today!

Hope you liked the card.
