Love, Hugs and Kisses!

Hello Crafties!

I have a fun card for today! I have made it in a rainbow theme.

Playing along Itsy Bitsy Blog Challenge #26 : Tic tac toe.

I used the first column of Stencil, diesets and clear stamps!

I first used the net stencil by Little birdie crafts along with distress inks in rainbow order.

I then colored a white panel with black charcoal chalk paint and the diecut it with the leaf diesets by Little birdie again.

All the stamps are from Itsy Bitsy too.

I wanted to make a colorful and bright card.

Do you like bright colors too?

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.

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.

Tree Jewelry Holder featuring Craft Cement!

Hey Crafties!
I am back with another project for Itsy Bitsy.
This month’s Blog Challenge is Challenge #19: Anything Goes using Little Birdie Craft Cement.
Little Birdie Craft Cement is such a versatile product. You can use any mould/plastic box available at home to make different types of holders!
Today, I have a step by step photo tutorial to help you create a ‘Tree Jewelry Holder’.

Let’s begin :
Step 1
Let us first make the tree. For this, I die cut bright white cardstock and 2 different shades of brown handmade cardstock using ‘Flowering Tree’ thin cut die. All products are by Little Birdie.
Step 2
I adhered all three of the tree die cuts in such a way that they were not aligned exactly behind each other and was slightly off. I did this on purpose so that you can see each color peeking a bit.
* You can use different shades of same color cardstock to give added dimension to your die cuts *
Step 3
I then die cut the little flowers & leaves that come with the ‘Flowering Tree’ die set using different colors of felt.
Step 4
The next step involves sticking these leaves & flowers on the tree.
This is how it looks :
Step 5
Let’s make the base now!
I mixed the required amount of Little Birdie Craft Cement gradually with water till I got a flowing consistency. I applied a bit of petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on the inside of the plastic box. Then I poured the cement mixture into it. You can use whatever box is available.
* Pour water gradually into the cement and not in one go *
Step 6
I let the cement sit in the mould for about 10 min and then pressed the tree upright inside it. I also pressed a small lid beside the tree to create a holder for my jewelry.
* Put a heavy object inside the small lid to create a deeper dent *
Step 7
I kept it aside for 24 hours and then took the cement base out of the mould. I also took the lid out. It looks like this :
Step 8
Now Lets decorate the jewelry holder we made. I applied Glass Bead Gel with a spatula on the base of the tree and let it dry till it turned transparent. This gives the effect of small rocks at the bottom of the tree.
Step 9
After this I painted the base with ‘Charcoal’ chalk paint. To finish off, I glued some leaves and flowers that were leftover from Step 3 on the base of the tree with silicon glue.
Ta da! Our project is complete!

Have a great day ahead!
