Mintay Bloomville layout Fabulous

Hello there!  Tania joining you today with the first of my shares for February my Mintay Bloomville layout Fabulous.  This month I got to play with the stunning new Mintay Bloomville Collection, oh my what a collection, love, love, love…….. what can I say I love all the Mintay Collections!

Mintay Bloomville 07 600x600 - Mintay Bloomville layout Fabulous by Tania Ridgwell

Here’s my finished page…..

Mintay Bloomville layout Fabulous

On this page I used white cardstock as the base.  I tore the top and bottom edges off one of the gorgeous patterned papers and stuck it to the cardstock.  Added texture to the background using the Kaisercraft Designer Template – Diamond Flourish and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Custard Cream.  Once this was dry I started to construct my page.  I did lots more fussy cutting for this page too. I first placed my photos and then I embellished the page with lots of the fussy cut elements.  I used a Scrap FX “Fabulous” chipboard title. Added some Kaisercraft Blooms and Green Tara Flowers and finished my page with some sprinkles of Prima Art Stones.

Here’s some close ups……Mintay Bloomville layout Fabulous

Until next time, thanks for stopping by.

Stamping Bella Peony Baby Card We’re so Happy by Debra James

Stamping Bella Peony Baby Card We’re so Happy

Hello, hope you all well.

I’m back this Wednesday with my Stamping Bella Peony Baby Card We’re so Happy using one of the new Stamping Bella stamps..

PEONY Baby

Stamping Bella Peony Baby Card We're so Happy

After colouring Peony Baby with Copics I fussy cut the baby out. I did add a little detail to the pot with a white gel Pen.

I though the Kaisercraft Decorative Die – Rose and Leaves would work great behind my Peony Baby. I cut the Rose and Leaves Die  twice out of 2 different shades of pinky/apricot kaiser card as well as from white card for the outside outline.

The sentiment is from MFT embossed onto black card.

Thanks for stopping by to view my Stamping Bella Peony Baby Card We’re so Happy, see you next week. Cheers Debra, x

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Ring Security by Kim Ewins

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Ring Security

Hello again! Kim here to share with you today my Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Ring Security. This is my final layout using the stunning, Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Collection.

This is such a stunning collection to work with and the more I have worked with it the more I love it!

My final layout is titled ‘Ring Security’

Let me show you!

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Ring Security

To put my layout together I took the Ciao Bella Broccato Estense sheet pictured below and cut it in half as I knew I wanted to use this stunning flower cluster….but I also wanted to use the blue design on the reverse side.

I then fussy cut the flower design section as shown below, keeping the cross-stitch and lace on the paper.

I then added some cardboard to the back of this section and then added another layer, so I could tuck things under the design.

I then took a sheet of white cardstock and added the blue design to the lower half of the cardstock then I stuck the flower, raised section over the join, where the blue paper met the white cardstock.

I stuck some muslin and a little scrap of Ciao Bella Broccato Estense paper behind my photo and secured it down with double-sided tape.

I then went in and added in elements around the flower section. I added muslin, buttons, a few fussy cut flowers, a fussy cut bird, die cut leaves, a feather and also some Graphic 45 Rose Bouquet Bon Voyage & French Blue flowers and I also took leaves off the stems and added them individually just to add that little pop of green around my layout & up the side of my photo.

I also used some of the AnnaBelle heart embellishments, for a sweet little touch.

With the main flower in the paper design I smeared some Tonic Studio Nuvo Expanding Mousse in Worn Linen around the flower and then using a stiff bristled paint brush I added a touch of detail. I also smeared a little Nuvo  Mousse randomly around the bottom, blue section and dried it off. I then added my title and details.

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Cards by Kim Ewins

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Cards

Hello…hello, Kim here to share with you my Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Cards. A couple of cards I have created using the stunning Broccato Estense collection from Ciao Bella

Teamed with a few other goodies from Anna’s Craft Cupboard, I think they turned out a treat!!

Here, let me show you!

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Cards

I took 3 pre-folded cards, two I used as my card body and the other I cut in half and used as my base to work on. Trimming down slightly. I then took a canvas sheet from a pad and cut to the same size as my base. Using scissors I roughened up the edges, then using a good craft glue I stuck the canvas to my base and let dry. Using the Ciao Bella Broccato Estense collection I decided on the papers I wanted to use and then I trimmed them slightly smaller (roughly 5mm each side), than my canvas base.

For this ‘Beauty’ card I cut 3 narrow lengths & stuck them in place, next I fussy cut one of the birds from the Broccato Estense tag and sentiment sheet along with the sentiment ‘Beauty’.

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Cards

I stuck a piece of lace above my paper strips and then I began arranging the bird, muslin, fussy cut flowers and some gorgeous blooms  from the Graphic 45 Rose Collection Bon Voyage & French Blue. I then added in some ArtQuest Mini Prills in Minnie Pearls. Sticking down once I was happy with placement. I then took a little Tonic Studio Nuvo Expanding Mousse in Worn Linen and put it on my craft mat and added a touch of water, then using a piece of cardboard I loaded up the edge and added a little boarder around the edge of the card. I also done this with a little navy blue paint and also added in a few random splats of paint.

With this second card I kept the design very simple as I love the Ciao Bella Broccato Estense papers. I added muslin between my base and the papers. Using my paper trimmer I also cut (at random) around the edge, about 1cm in from the edges and tucked & glued in muslin to create interest.

I stuck down a small amount of lace, a couple of buttons, a sentiment, some Graphic 45 blooms and again I added some of the gorgeous ArtQuest Mini Prills. Oh…. and I also added a feather!!!

Once happy with the front of my cards I then stuck them to the card body’s.

I do hope you have found my post interesting and I hope you feel inspired to check out the Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Collection?

It is a truly beautiful Collection. I will be back to share another creation very soon.

Thank you for stopping by to view my Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Cards.

Until next time

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Be Happy by Kim Ewins

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Be Happy

Hello…hello… Kim here with you to share another of my projects, my Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Be Happy, created using the Broccato Estense Collection from Ciao Bella.

This collection is seriously gorgeous! Perfect for scrapping wedding photos!

Let me share with you my second creation using this collection featuring my daughter Samantha and her husband Jacob.

Photo taken by a local photographer Angus McKern

 

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Be Happy

To create this layout I started with a sheet of Ciao Bella-Broccato Estense paper that was in the almost sepia tones as I thought it would work well with my photo. I then found another sheet of Broccato Estense paper that had a lacey  looking designed edge which I carefully ripped out and stuck this section to my base paper. Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and a blending tool I went around the outer edge of my base paper.

 

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Be Happy

I then took a stencil and some of the Tonic Studios- Nuvo Expanding Mousse in Worn Linen and applied it around my base paper. Making sure to dry it off with my heat tool. I wanted it to imitate the lights in my photo.

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Be Happy

I cut a two tags from the sheet of Ciao Bella Broccato Estense tags and sentiments sheet and stuck those down, along with some muslin and a piece of lace. The lace is actually from the wedding invitations, I thought it would be a nice sentimental touch.

Next, I matted my photo onto some white cardstock, I also stuck some cardboard between my photo and matt just to give it height. Then I went in and added some flowers cut from other sheets of Ciao Bella Broccato Estense papers, distressing the edges of the cut flowers with scissors and also adding a touch of Vintage Photo Distress Ink using a blending tool. With a couple of the flowers I stuck some cardboard behind them to add height.

Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Layout Be Happy

I then added some die cut leaves, feather’s, buttons, a metal charm and I also tucked a little extra muslin here and there. I then cut out one of the sentiments from the Ciao Bella Broccato Estense Collection Sentiment/tag sheet and stuck that in place, added a piece of cardboard underneath. Lastly I added some gorgeous ArtQuest Prills in Minnie Pearls.

With the die cut leaves I didn’t feel the need to remove all the cut-out bits…I like the effect.
