Snow with BoBunny

Here is a page I made for BoBunny using Winters Playground and there is a video to go with it too.  I love this wintry collection with the blues and turquoises in it, it was perfect for the snow pictures I go this year too.  I won't say too much about it as you'll be able to see from the video, but I had a lovely play with paints, glitter paste, glitter confetti and some of the laser cut chipboards.

I love the tonal flowers - and especially the little crochet ones!

I used some of the layered chipboard from a last years winters papers (Winter Wishes - another favourite!)  and it went perfectly.

Complete with a snowman whose hat has been knocked off with a snowball!

I hope you enjoy the video - you can see it here.

Winter Wonderland Double Page with Simple Stories

After a beautiful covering go snow this winter I have lots of pictures so decided to have a go at a double page spread, which is something that I don't do too often.  I've used Winter Wonderland by Simple Stories which was in my DT kit from A Trip Down Memory Lane.  I love the way that you can put a Simple Stories page together fairly quickly with all the cards and elements in their collections.

I started this page with co-ordinating strips at each side and then had my photos track across the middle.  I decided to mount them on a rust coloured yardstick (not something I normally do) as it went so well with the colours in the papers and as the photos were white it made them pop a little more.  Once my photos were on I had fun with clusters of embellishments and some of the little word stickers in this collection.

Here are some close-ups.

I love the little snowmen, and sticking to that cluster of 3 rule that seems to work so well!

I love the cards in this collection and this one was perfect for the title.

Here you can see one of the word stickers which are lovely for adding a little bit more information to the photos.

I've also created a wintry video for BoBunny which you can find here.

Today I choose Happiness with BoBunny

BoBunny have created these new chipboard frames, they are perfect for altering and I teamed it with the lovely Penelope collection.  I used lots of layers of pentart acrylic paint and also the crackle medium, I then went over the top with some silver wax - and the laser cut butterflies are covered in silver wax.
I carefully cut out the flowers, inked the edges and then curled the petals adding a gem to the middle. I cut the main phrase out of the elements paper in this kit and then mounted it on some different layers of paper.  I added a little bird cage - one of the new wood veneer elements, in the corner.

You can see the curves on the flower petals, I just cut into them a little bit and shaped them with my hands.

Just a little bit of silver wax on the laser cut butterflies completely transforms them.

Here you can see the crackle medium at  work.  If you would like more details please have a look here

Trust your Journey with BoBunny

I wanted to share with you a page and video that I made using BoBunny's Penelope collection.  It has beautiful blues and greens and browns in it, but I went just for the greens and browns because of my sons t-shirt!

I used stencil paste to add my first layer and then lots of strips of paper in varying sizes and widths - it would be a great design to use up scraps as well as whole sheets.  I fussy cut out lots of the flowers and cut the title from the papers.  I added flowers and gems, laser cut chipboard and the really delicate wood veneer bird cages - all of which are from BoBunny.

I cut into the petals for each of the flowers so I could curl them up.

Here you can see the layers of gems, flowers and papers.

I distressed the edges of all my papers, and add some flicks of silver as well as the layer of stencilling too.

Here is the video for you.

Christmas Sparkle

This month I had some of BoBunny's Carousel Christmas in my pack from ATDML.  I started my page with BoBunny's Snowflake stencil and some gold glitter paste, I then added some golden mist too.  I layered up some of the papers and cut out a Christmas tree which I decorated with gems and pearls to add a little more sparkle.  I added a doily and a die cut, distressed lots of edges, added some twine, and then used my stamps from Shimelle for the title (I love this font!)

I hadn't realised the gold drops of paint would come through my stamping, but I really love it!  I stamped over the gold mist!

Here you can see the glitter paste, the stickable stencils have really delicate images and give a beautiful finish when you want something really detailed in a stencil.

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Some more Falala but this time on a page, I used grey as my base and then added lots of snowflakes from BoBunny's Christmas Card die and also their stamps too.  I printed out 2 photos on my selphy and really like them joined together, so left them that way and just mounted them on red.  In the collection there are lots of elements you can cur out like the Father Christmas and the title, I added some of the Laser Cut Chipboard (the red sparkly present) and covered it in sparkly red embossing powder, and then layered up one of their Wood Veneers with the date on.  The red sledge is also one of the Christmas wood veneers and I covered this in red embossing powder too.

I layered up my title on some die cuts from the label die set and added lots of snowflakes around it.

Here you can see the embossed present - I like the way you can see the layers behind it.

More cards with BoBunny Falala

I had a play with Pentarts media inks for these cards, and started with some glossy paper (you can find all the product details here) and just drops of the ink that I painted across the paper on a diagonal.  It is so much fun!  I then used the Feeling Festive stamp and archival ink to stamp on my first card, the second card I used the BoBunny Christmas card die cut in white and that is all!

I had a play with a few backgrounds for this I added in drips of dilettante and made more of a splodgey background!  I then used the Circular Texture stamps to make some baubles and hung them on my card.

Some more stamping on the alcohol ink background, this time with the Russian dolls from Feeling Festive, then layering them on lots of Falala papers.
