4 x 6 inches in size - featuring refillable, spiral-bound notepads. This selection uses the new Doodlebug Lovebug papers and embellishments. Knob pulls are KaiserCraft. Doodlebug has already retired this collection. Yikes.
Finished card size is an A2 - 4.25 x 5.5 inches. Serendipity Frame cut from white cardstock, set aside one bird, inked entire frame/leaves/branches with Distress Gathered Twigs (seemed an appropriate color-ha) ink and a foam blending tool, then fine-tuned the branches and leaves using Copic markers (YG23, YG25 for leaves; E35 for branches).
Using Stormy Sky and Peacock Feathers Distress Re-inkers I watercolored the oval diecut, then heat-set. Serendipity Frame was adhered using clear-drying glue; bird was adhered with a bit of foam tape. Entire oval was adhered to Woodland Oval using foam tape for dimension.
Using Open Studio's Delicate Nest dies for a needed welcome baby card. The long twig is Memory Box Woodland Branch. Card base is Memory Box Dill cardstock.
Here's a close-up of the cute nest - patterned paper is 7gypsies Conservatory 6x6 pad. Speckled effect was achieved by spritzing the eggs with Vintage Photo Distress Stain in a Mini Mister, held around 15 inches away. Eggs are die cut from Bazzill Robin's Egg cardstock.
New Fabscraps papers used - these papers and embellishments are made in South Africa, and the images are stunning.
This was the paper that inspired me to carry their latest lines:
Here's a close-up of one of the notebooks - 5x8 inches in size, and refillable - Sizzix Heart die was cut from Grungepaper then crackled, then inked with Distress Tea Dye and a foam applicator tool.
They also featured an interior pocket:
These both sold at the market last Saturday, and I'm thinking Hanukkah cards next year with this paper.
I covered a home decor piece using these papers as well - I promise to share photos.
Thank you for the comments regarding the October Afternoon Saturday Afternoons notebook - if you didn't win you have a second chance - I am creating a second notebook using these fabulous papers and am having the youngest pick a second number today!
Tree was inked with Distress Vintage Photo Ink and an ink applicator tool, followed by Copic markers. Patterned cardstock is 7gypsies Conservatory.
The nest die cuts were inked with Distress Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain inks: I cut two of the nest 'top' - one was inked with just Vintage Photo and the second was inked with both inks. The 'bottom' was inked with just Walnut Stain.
