Hello Hello Hello Cards

Tea bag techniques

Hello friends! Here it's Solange Marques here!
I love the texture I can get with tea bags and today I'll share with you some art journal pages using them.

On this page I've used the tea bags on the background .
I've used  dried flowers , stamps and beeswax to create this page.

I've applied copper embossing powder on the chipboard and beeswax:

I've covered the butterflies chipboards with tea bags and I've applied embossing powder on the borders:

On the second page, I,ve used the tea bags to laminate feathers and dried flowers:

I've also covered the chipboards with tea bags and I've applied metallic copper paste:

On the third page, I've applied distress embossing powder on the chipboards and then I've applied acrylic gesso on the borders.

Chipboard & Paint!

Hi Chipboard Fans!

Wendy here from Wicked Lady Cards this month I have gone back to my favourite colour combo's - browns & creams with a pop of colour!  So this month I decided to use some paints with my chipboard because I love the simplicity using paint and the coverage is great I like to apply a couple coats just for a really nice finish. I am over my break-up with flowers I have let them back into my stash!!!

So below I have taken some photos to show you exactly what products I used to achieved the looks for the chipboard.

Lastly some up close photos of the chipboard!

Thank for stopping by, the details of the chipboard I have used is below.

Keep Creating! 


The flourish on the Sugar Plum card is a new design.

Product - Denise's Art Deco

Product - You & Me

Scrapbooking and Birthday Cards - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here and today I'm sharing some scrapbook pages and cards made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.
I started this scrapbook page by using white cardstock and added strips of Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith Bright and Brave papers to the top and bottom of the page. Then I matted my photos with more papers and added them to the page. 
Next I added clusters of chipboard, flowers and flair. All of the chipboard has been painted with watercolour pan paints in a teal colour. 
I also added some handwritten journalling and a roller date stamp. Lastly I added splatters of teal and black Heidi Swapp Color Shine across my page.

Isn't this flourish chipboard goegeous! Its new and I can see myself needing more of them :)

flourish - new design see instore soon!

Next I created a set of birthday cards.
I started by creating this teal coloured card (in line with the Imaginarium Designs Colour of the month theme) and I loved it so much I thought I would make a set in peacock colours :)

I kept my card relatively simple and used a peacock stencil and ink to create the background layer. I used the same coloured to ink the edges of the chipboard then I also added a sparkly layer of glitter glue around the edges.
I also inked the edges of the cardstock and added more glitter glue. I often assemble my card then add the glitter glue last so it can dry naturally. 
 How pretty is this stencil!
I then tried something similar with the crosses stencil and some crosses.
