Slimline Birthday Card with a gelli printed background and Distress Ink fodder butterflies

Hello everyone, I am again up with a slimline birthday card over at the Rubber Dance blog today. I created this card with Grungy Butterflies fodder, a gelli printed background and heat embossed Sketchy Flowers #3 as background details. For the DIY gelli print paper I used the Cross It and Marks 2 stencils with pastel toned acrylic paints.

For the background I used one of the gelli prints I created previously in bulk with a gelli plate. I took a slimline card base in cream to add the diy paper onto as a background, but before adhering that piece onto place I added some stamping with the Sketchy Flowers #3 set with embossing ink and heat embossed the flower images with white embossing ink. On top of that I added some golden pigment splatters for additional interest and then arranged a row of Grungy Butterflies on top. The video on how I created this fodder, is added to the end of this post.

I also decorated the butterflies with some golden details before adhering them into place. For the sentiment I used black stamp ink and one of the stamp sentiments from the Sketchy Flowers set.

Here is the video on how I created the butterfly fodder and a start-to-finish video about the card creating process as well as a peek into the gelli print papers I created in bulk:

I hope I could inspire you to play with your stamps and stencils and create fun mixed media cards!!

Mixed Media cutouts 2 – kreativt_uttrykk

Hello again! Here is yet another project I created using the mixed media cutouts by Åshild Halvorsen. This time it´s an art journal page.

First of all, go to her INSTA PAGE for awesome inspiration and more details on her various social media sites. Also, you can buy her cutouts in various sets (in different colours) over HERE (her Etsy-page).

And here is my art journal page:

I was playing with the cutouts and combined Distress Oxide inks and Rubber Dance stencils with them on this page. I first added some stenciling to the page with “cracked pistachio” and Organic 3 stencil. I love this pattern, by the way!!!

Next I took some “peacock feathers” and the Cross it stencil . On top of that I added the gorgeous blue toned birdies and some of the border images as well as circles. Then I added some asemic writing and colored some parts with a red Posca pen. I love red and blue together. I also outlined some of the crosses and added some doodling to the cutou images or next to them, to be more precise. Then I wrote a quote and fussy cut it into bits and adhered the pieces onto the page. I really like the freshness of this page and the birdies are really very cute!!

I hope I could inspire you to take a look at Åshild´s designs and Rubber Dance stencils :). They make a really nice combination here.

Happy crafting,

Cards with Doodle Flowers with a twist – Rubber Dance

Hello lovelies! I am up over at the Rubber Dance blog today with two mixed media cards using the Doodle Flowers stamps with a little twist. This is one of my first Rubber Dance stamp sets that I absolutely fell in love with. I wanted to use the flowers in a different way and created pink toned “skirts” for the paper dolls with them. For these cards I used the Doodle Flowers stamps with pink toned Distress Inks and Marks 2 and Cross It stencils with Distress Oxide Inks. You will find a video tutorial at the bottom of this post.

Unfortunately the Doodle Flowers in the Clear Version are almost sold out, but they are still be available as a rubber stamp set. It’s linked at the bottom of this post. And I’m sure they will be a follow-up clear stamps set in the future, with some brand new flowers 😉 !!!

Here is how I created the cards: I first added two pink Distress Ink tones onto a craft sheet and sprayed them with water. Then I wiped the paper onto the wet ink. After the paper was dry I stamped several images of Doodle Flowers onto the paper and fussy cut them (only the flower buds). Next I took an old music note sheet (if you don’t have music paper you can also use the Rubber Dance music stamp to make some on your own), misted it with light blue and green spray ink and after that added stencil marks with grey, green and blue toned Distress Oxide Inks and a blending brush onto the music sheet.

Next I cut the stenciled backgroud paper into a right size, adhered it onto a card base and then took a paper doll and added that as a centerpiece to the card with a skirt arranged from the fussy cut Doodle Flowers stamp images. Finally, I typed a sentiment with my old typewriter and adhered it onto each card. If you don’t own a typerwriter, you might like the Rubber Dance Mix A Sentiment stamp set!

Here is a start-to-finish video of how I created the cards:

I hope you liked this little card inspiration!
