Chalk Paint Cards

Hi Crafties!
This is my last project as a DT member for Itsy Bitsy 2019.
Let’s move on to today’s project…
I have several CAS cards for you today featuring Chalk Paints!
CAS stands for Clean and Simple cards. You can make all of these cards in a short time!
For the 1st card :
Step 1:
I used several colors of Chalk Paints. Do let me know in the comments below if you would like to know the names of each!
I used the paints with a flat brush in a swiping motion and then let them dry.
Step 2:
On this panel, I stamped the ‘Flowerful Gratitude’ stamp set with black ink.
Step 3:
Then I foam mounted the panel on a white card base and stamped a sentiment. I also rounded the corners for added interest. And my card is complete!
Now lets move to the next cards –
Both the cards are created from a single panel.
Step 1:
I did the wet on wet watercolor technique. It entails first giving a wash of water on the card panel and then coming in with the colour of your choice. I used Deep Sea Blue and Marsh Green chalk paints.
I let the colour flow on its own.
Step 2:
After drying the panel completely, I die cut the leaf from Fern forest dieset by Little Birdie.
Step 3:
You get two cards out of this. I adhered the negative panel on an A2 card base and stamped the sentiment.
I also created some splatters and added Little Birdie pearl drops.
Step 4:
I then swiped three stripes of chalk paint Marsh Green on a white card panel. And then glued the positive leaf diecut on it and stamped the sentiment.
*To match the colour of the diecut, I painted the borders of the card base with same Deep Sea Blue chalk paint*
Moving on to the last 2 cards.
Step 1:
I used the net stencil with Sailing Sky chalk paint on a white card base.
After I lifted the stencil, I immediately pressed the other side of it on another white card panel.
So you get 2 cards out of this one too!
Step 2:
I stamped the ‘Flowery wishes’ stamp on the stenciled image.
Step 3 :
After repeatedly stamping the sentiment, I glued the panel on a black A2 card base.
Step 4 :
I colored another white card panel with Charcoal chalk paint. And then diecut that panel twice with the same leaf die.
Step 5:
I adhered these 2 diecuts on the faded stenciled image panel. After stamping the sentiment and adding the pearl drops, both cards are complete.
I hope you liked my projects.

A Beautiful Tree!

Hi Crafties!

I have two projects for you today, both made using almost the same products.
Both the projects follow the theme of a beautiful tree to illustrate that beauty lies within! This is my DT post for Itsy Bitsy. You can find the post here.
Read on further to know how I made them….
Let’s begin the 1st project.
Step 1:
First I used the Flowering Tree die on white cardstock. This is to be used as a stencil.
Step 2:
I then sprayed Little Birdie Gold Alcohol Splash in Canary Gold using the above stencil on the green paper from the Chevron in Aquarelle paper pack by Little Birdie.
It looks like this:
Step 3:
I then created small drops on the tree using Little Birdie Pearl drops in various colors. ( Check out the colors listed at the bottom of the post ). You can create different sizes of drops by controlling the bottle. I also used the Snow White drops to highlight the image.
Step 4:
For the base, I used the cardboard from the box that my DT kit arrived in. I painted it with Deep Blue Sea chalk paint. On this I adhered the panel created above.
* I frayed the edges of the paper for added interest *
Step 5:
The next step was to diecut some grass and fence from the Victorian Lamp Post dieset. I glued these over the tree.
Step 6:
Finally I stamped some clouds from the Princess and Dragon stamp set and pasted it on the panel. I also stuck the sentiment sticker from the gift hamper that Itsy Bitsy had kindly sent all crafters for the New Year.
And my project is complete!
Now let’s move on to the next project:
Step 1:
I used the stencil that was already created for the above Project in the 1st step.
Step 2:
Next I trimmed a piece of Coco Brown polyester felt from the store and adhered it behind the stencil.
Step 3:
Using the Little Birdie Pearl drops in Mahogany, Tangelo Citrus and Black Satin was next.
Step 4:
Then I spread some Stone texture paste in Graphite Dust at the base of the tree with the help of a spatula. It gives the effect of rocks. The texture paste looks so pretty when it dries. It has a lovely shine to it.
And my project is complete!
Little Birdie Pearl Drops are so pretty to look at when they dry.

Metallic Projects

Today I have not one but three tutorials using Little birdie Metallic Wax – Copper Blaze.

This is my DT post for Itsy Bitsy. You can find the post here.

This product is so versatile, you could use it on a variety of mediums and finishes. It gives instant shine to your projects.
Lets get started –

Project I :

The first project I am showcasing is a home decor project.
Step 1:
I used Little Birdie embossing paste in Frosty Fizz with Little Birdie 14×14 inch stencil Classy Lace on black cardstock. The cardstock measured 7″ × 12″.
I used only half of the stencil.
* Spreading the paste evenly with a spatula is the key*
Step 2:
It looks like this.
With the help of a heat gun, I got this texture of the paste like below.
Isn’t it gorgeous?
Step 3 :
Then I used my Star product – Little Birdie Metallic Wax in Copper Blaze. I used my finger to dab the wax on the elevated parts of the design. I purposefully avoided some areas and kept them white. I also let the wax spread a bit on the cardstock too. Its unto you how you want the design to look.
Step 4:
I adhered the cardstock on heavyweight chipboard of the same size.
To further decorate the panel, I used Pearl drops by Little Birdie.
And my project is complete!

Project II :

Now, let’s move on to the second project :
Step 1:
On a square canvas measuring 4″×4″, I stamped the sentiment from the Family stamp set in the middle.
Step 2:
I then lightly drew a circle around it with the help of a lid. I spread the Glass Bead Gel by Little birdie around the circle with the help of a spatula.
Step 3:
After drying it looks like this :
Step 4:
The next step involves sponging on top of the gel with Little Birdie Chalk paints in Frozen Ice & Sailing Sky.
I also mixed those two to get a darker grey.
Step 5:
After drying, I spread Little Birdie Metallic Wax in Copper Blaze.
I also outlined the circle with the chalk paints. And used pearl drops around the circle to further enhance the look.
And its complete!

Project III :

Now, lets begin the 3rd tutorial :
You can use this versatile metallic wax in cardmaking too!!!
Step 1:
Taking a 4 × 4 inch Bright White cardstock , I used various distress inks and smooshed them using water.
Step 2:
After I was satisfied with the result, I stamped the Flora Wishes stamp by Little Birdie on the panel and heat embossed it with Little Birdie Clear Embossing powder.
Step 3:
I then spread the Metallic Wax Copper Blaze on top of it with my finger. After that I took a tissue and wiped the excess off!
Step 4:
On a base of Classic White cardstock measuring 5.5″ × 11″ , scored at 5.5″, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set repeatedly with festive berries distress ink.
I adhered the square panel in the middle. Also, I spread the Metallic Wax Copper Blaze all over the sides. And stuck red shiny tape on two sides.
*To make it transfer proof, I applied a thin layer of Little Birdie Matte Varnish*
And my card is complete.
Hope you liked my projects.

Dream Girl – Mixed Media Card

Hi Crafties!
I am back with another DT inspiration project for the ongoing Itsy Bitsy Blog Challenge #21 : Anything Goes with Little Birdie Metallic Wax.

You can find the post here.

We all have dreams! Dreams of soaring high, dreams of having it all…
Today I have a card that tries to illustrates those dreams!
This is my first ever mixed media card!

Read on further to know how I made it…
Lets begin!
Step 1:
On a 5.5 x 6 inches panel of Bright White cardstock, I used the Net stencil with Hot Pink Color Splash.
Step 2:
Next I cut a doily in half & then folded it again and adhered it on the panel.
Step 3:
I then used the Script stencil with Crackle paste on the top left corner and the bottom right corner of the panel for added interest.
Step 4:
After this, I glued mixed media strips as shown.
Step 5:
On this, I dabbed Copper Blaze Metallic Wax by Little Birdie. It is so smooth to use.
Step 6:
I also dabbed the Copper Blaze Metallic Wax on some gorgeous white handmade flowers by Little Birdie.
I then glued them down on the panel as seen below :
Step 7:
In the next step, I stamped the images from the Princess and Dragon stamp set. I colored these images with Color splash and Metallic paint.
Step 8:
I pasted these images with glue and some with foam tape to give dimension.
I also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and glued it on the panel. I distressed the sides of the panel with my scissors and also dabbed Copper Blaze Metallic Wax here and there.
I finally glued the panel to the card base. And my first ever mixed media is complete!
Hope you liked my card!

The base of the box card is created using the Scalloped Box Card dieset by Lawn Fawn.

I colored the images with my Koi watercolor set in warm hues. I then fussy cut the flowers and adhered them on the box card.

I watercolored the panels too!

The sentiment is by Your Next Stamp.

The individual flowers were adhered on strips of acetate. I also added 2 honey bees from the same set to resemble a garden.

I made this card for a friend.

I used different distress oxides for the background.

I started by blending Lucky Clover distress oxide on the outside in a circular motion. Followed by Peacock blue distress oxide and then Tumbled Glass distress oxide in the middle.

Lastly I used a bit of Black Soot distress oxide on the outer most part. I splattered white acrylic paint on the final outcome.

The interactive feature was inspired by my favorite Jennifer Mcguire! You can find her tutorial here.

I stamped, colored and fussy cut the images from the Out of this World stamp set by Lawn fawn.

The moon revolves along with the planets. I had such fun making this card. Hope you like it too!
