Delightful - Featuring Sanctuary by Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!  It's the weekend!  Couldn't be more excited . . . as it has been a long, stressful work week. Today I have another layout to share  created for Blue Fern Studios featuring the Sanctuary paper collection.
I used the Botanical Garden for my background and added some random masking.


To the right side of the photo I used the Gingers Poppies Chipboard which I embossed with Mushroom Imagine Ink embossing powder and then lightly inked with some cranberry and purple ink.  I used some Blue Fern flowers from the Attic Charm Daisies, Tranquil Lilies and Courtship Blooms. 

The Floral Lattice Bits Chipboard was embossed with Mushroom and lightly ink with cranberry and purple inks.


The title is from The Optimist Word set, which I lightly inked with purple.  I used two purple roses from Courtship Blooms which I sprinkled with some Merlot Glitter and then misted a darker purple.

Dazzling - Featuring Serendipity by Blue Fern Studios

Hi everyone!  I'm back today to share another layout created for Blue Fern Studios, featuring the Serendipity paper collection.   
This layout features the Glee paper from the Serendipity collection.   I added some  masking and paint splatters.  Layers  underneath the photo are from the Imagination paper and Keepsakes paper from the Timeless collection.  I had a lot of fun working on this layout mixing embossing powders to compliment my picture, which I took it a few years ago.  I have a big planter on my deck full of daisies. 

The Blooming Flourish chipboard was embossed with a mixture of Verdant, Sage and Auburn embossing powers.  I cut the flourish in half and used it on both sides of my photo.  The Royal Monarch Butterfly and Mini Ring Things chipboard were covered in brown ink and then embossed with a mixture of Verdant, Auburn, Chili Power and Tangerine Embossing Powders.  


The title is from the Brilliant, Amazing, Dazzling word set, embossed with the same mixture of embossing powers I used on the butterfly and mini rings.  I used a stencil on the background with some brown texture paste and sprinkled on some Autumn Glitter and Auburn embossing powder.

Seaside Cottage - Blue Fern Studio's New Collection!

We are thrilled to announce the release of our new paper collection - Seaside Cottage.   When we hear the word "seaside", several images come to mind; white sand, clear blue water, gentle waves, seashells, summer vacations, and the list could go on-and-on.  The beach is a place you can go to escape all the pressures of life.  
We bring that relaxed feeling to this new collection created by Michele Singh.  

Seaside Cottage is a 10-page collection of double sided paper that evokes the magic of the beach. 
 You will find beautiful images, lots of amazing texture, and soothing beach colors. 










We also have 2 sets of coordinating flowers:


And what would a new collection be without some fabulous new chipboard?
We have some seaside images, as well as some amazing titles for all your summer projects!

And to enhance all this beautiful chipboard, we have a few new colors of embossing powder:
Our design team has so many ideas swirling around in their creative minds.  
We can't wait to share some of their projects with you in the upcoming weeks.

Remember, Featuring Blue Fern Studios Attic Charm

Hi everyone!  I'm back today to share another layout with you created for Blue Fern Studios, featuring the new Attic Charm collection.  I went vintage on this one, and created lots of texture on the background.

 This layout features the Generation paper and a vintage photo that belonged to  my grandmother.  Not sure who the people are in the picture, but I love it, as they look so happy.  I couldn't help but wonder what the occasion was.   I added some texture to the background paper with some masking, misting with the Imagine Ink Sky Mist and some random stamping with the Romantic Accents stamp.  I added additional texture with torn pieces of paper doilies, some of which I misted with the Sky Mist, gold microbeads and some 14 Karat embossing power.  The layers under the photo are from Calling Cards. 

I used two pieces of chipboard here, Treasured Floral Frame and Dangle Bird Ornament which I cut  apart. Both were embossed with a mixture of the Imagine Ink Snow, Mushroom and Breeze Embossing Powers, and  some Blue Ice Glitter. I also used the 14 Karat embossing power on the green leaves.  Love the shimmery look!

Lots of Blue Fern Flowers . . . Attic Charm Daisies, Attic Charm Glitter Roses, Courtship Blooms and Tranquil Lilies!  The small green Courtship Bloom I embossed with 14 Karat embossing powder.

My title is a new chipboard piece from the Attic Charm collection.  I embossed with a mixture of  Snow, Mushroom, 14 Karat and Breeze Embossing Powers along with a sprinkling of Blue Ice Glitter.  Love the aged look of it.

Love Is The Treasure, Laughter Is The Key

Hi everyone!  So enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having lately!  Lots of sunshine and warm temps!   I been taking advantage of the gorgeous weather by spending lots of time outside in the evenings working in my flower gardens.  Last week I shared the June sketch for Blue Fern Studios.  Today I am sharing the layout I created for it using the new Attic Charm collection.  

I used the Curio paper for the background and added some random masking, inking, paint splatters and stamping with the Bourbon Street and Romantic Accent stamps.   I used the  Calling Cards, Attic Key and Haberdashery papers for layers under my photo.  The photo is my dear friend's sweet daughter.  I edited it to give it a Vintage look.  Clusters of flowers include the new Attic Charm Daisies and Glitter Roses, along with some leaves embossed with 14 Karat Embossing powder.  I added two metal butterflies to each side of my photo embossed with Oatmeal, Breeze and Cotton Candy embossing powders.

I placed a portion of the Iron Signage chipboard underneath my photo which I embossed with a mixture of Mushroom, Oatmeal and Breeze Embossing powders.  To the left you can see a heart and key which I embossed with Oatmeal and Cotton Candy embossing powers.  Tucked beneath the Attic Charm Daisy is the Crackle Bits chipboard, embossed with Mushroom, Oatmeal, Breeze and Cotton Candy embossing power and beneath the Glitter Rose is a Blooming Foliage chipboard piece embossed with Verdant embossing powder. Torn pieces of lace were tucked in various places to give some added texture.


Here I've used the Leafy Rings chipboard embossed with the same mixture of embossing powers as the Crackle Bits.  I added some pink and blue micobeads on the chipboard as well as on the background paper.

There is still plenty of time to join us for the June Sketch Challenge at Blue Fern Studios.  For inspiration from our design team and details on the challenge, click here
