Mixed Media With Karla – Keepin’ It Real Scraplift

Hi friends! Karla here today with a fun Mixed Media layout! Our theme this week is to scraplift the infamous Missy Whidden! She is so amazingly talented – I was a little intimidated to even attempt this!!

Here’s a look at Missy’s awesome scrapbook layout. You can check it out on Instagram HERE or watch her YouTube process video HERE.

I loved the mixed media circles she layered on, so I decided to try my Distress Paints using the same technique she showed in her video with the Shimmerz Paste-eez (which you can find in the SpiegelMom Scraps Store!!) It was fun to try a few new techniques and step outside my comfort zone! I think that’s important for everyone to do once in a while. I even decided to post a crazy face photo, and this Keepin’ It Real sticker from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection was the perfect title 😉 and the bright sequins from the Jaded HeartsNeon Summer and Gotta Love Emoji’s mixes were just the right pop!

I used some Dylusions mists on my background, spraying on a piece of acetate and smooshing it onto my background in blue, green and purple colours. It was great to get them out of the drawer! Since my photos were very neutral I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to use lots of background colours.

I used some Shimelle Starshine stickers and added a bit of thread under my handcut paint blobs. After I first layered on the thread, I realized I had it in too much of a perfect circle, lol, so I had to mess it up a bit!

I layered my photos on some Hazel & Ruby printed tissue paper from my stash and then on top of some plain green tissue paper. I love the bit of texture that gives, and I popped up a few of the paint dabs to give some dimension.

Creative Cards with Karla – Stitched Laundry Birthday Card!

Howdy friends! It’s Karla back today to share a fun stitched birthday card! Now, usually you wouldn’t associate laundry with FUN but when you combine the Lawn Fawn Loads of Fun stamps along with lots of SpiegelMom Scraps sequins, burlap string and felties, you can’t help but have fun!! Our theme this week is to add stitching to a project, so I got out my sewing machine and added a zigzag stitch over the Black May Arts Burlap String to add a little clothes line to hang my laundry on. I have lots of fun stitches that I’ve never even used on my machine, so I thought I’d try a cross stitch one along the bottom of the card. I love how that turned out, and I’ll definitely be using it more! I even grabbed some Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies and cut a background from some pink Shimelle Starshine paper.

Today I pulled out Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes to use on my card. After I coloured my images with Jane Davenport coloured pencils and added some paper piecing with some Shimelle Starshine papers I had lots of fun adding these sequins!

I used one of the heart felties to do some handstitching on, doing a ‘blanket stitch’ around the edge, sewing on a button and adding sequins by stitching a ‘french knot’ into the center of each pretty little flower. A quick online search will show you lots of handstiches you can try!@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @lawnfawn @americancrafts @shimellelaine @kaisercraft #smssequins #sequins #sequinlove #handstitching #machinestitching #fauxstitching #diecutting #stamping #paperpiecing #cardmaking #greetingcard #happybirthday #felt #coloredpencils #laundry #loadsoffun

Inside, I used another of the Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies, inked and stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink.

Here’s a look at the supplies I used from the SMS Shop:

Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes

Black May Arts Burlap String

Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies

The Heart Felties are now sold out! There are a few Felties left in the shop and they are being discontinued to make room for fun, new things. But don’t let that stop you from grabbing some felt and diecutting or handcutting your own to try some stitching techniques on!

 

I popped my cute laundry up with foam dots to add some dimension, and I can’t wait to give this to a special friend on their birthday! I’m sure I’ll even think about how much fun I had making this card while I’m doing real laundry later today 😉

Retro Canvas Tutorial with Karla!

Hello friends! Karla here again today to share a tutorial with you, showing you how I created this pretty canvas. Just by following a few easy steps you can quickly create a beautiful canvas for yourself or a gift for someone special! Since our theme this month is ‘Take Us Back June’ I thought this Prima paper doll stamp by Julie Nutting would be perfect, combined with the vintage 7gypsies Architextures papers and Prima armoire tag. I’ve created a little tutorial, so you can see just how easy it is to create a canvas  yourself! @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @prima @julienutting @canvascorpbrands @7gypsies@modpodge @tatteredangels #mixedmedia #canvas #tutorial #glimmerglam #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #cork #retro #vintage #paperdolls #julienutting #prima #rubons #scrapbook #papercrafting #crafty #modpodge

Step 1- I used a Dollar Store canvas and chose a few pieces of paper – these are from the 7gypsies Architextures paper pad – love <3! I cut and tore them to fit on my canvas.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @prima @julienutting @canvascorpbrands @7gypsies@modpodge @tatteredangels #mixedmedia #canvas #tutorial #glimmerglam #spiegelmomscraps #sequins #cork #retro #vintage #paperdolls #julienutting #prima #rubons #scrapbook #papercrafting #crafty #modpodge

Step 2 – I painted the edges of my canvas with Tattered Angels High Impact light blue paint, stamped and coloured my Prima doll, paper pieced her clothing and cut out some paper elements (banners) from the 7gypsies paper pad. Ok, how cool are her boots – really?!!

Step 3 – I used Mod Podge to glue on the paper elements and the Prima armoire tag by painting a coat of the Mod Podge, laying on the papers, and painting another coat on top. I glued the doll’s clothing on and used Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam to paint the Julie Nutting paper doll chipboard pieces. The Glimmer Glam gives such a high sheen with pieces of glitter – it’s really neat!

Step 4 – I used a clear gel medium through a Tim Holtz stencil and then added Ranger Distress Glitter on while it was still wet so the glitter stuck to the gel. I also added some very cool 7gypsies Architextures rubons around my canvas to give a vintage, distressed stamped look. I glued on a couple more paper elements – these records came in a Retro paper pack from Michaels!

Step 5 – I added my paper doll, chipboard pieces and SpiegelMom Scraps Chunky Cork Heart – which I painted gold with the Glimmer Glam. I hot glued a black velvet ribbon around the edge of the canvas to cover any staples that might show. Now comes the FUN part!! Digging through all my sequins to see which ones I want to use 🙂 I decided to go with Jaded Hearts, Fairy Garden, Neon Summer, Sparkle Power and Free Spirit sequin mixes! They are all so pretty!!

I used some of the flowers from a couple different mixes to add to the brim of her hat, using Glossy Accents to adhere them. Next, I grabbed some of the beautiful gold sequins in Free Spirit to add around the picture frame. The message inside is an Architextures rubon, and I covered it with Glossy Accents to give it a glassy look.

The pretty flowers from Fairy Garden worked great to add as drawer pulls on the side table.

I tucked a cool camera in with the records and added some sequins to the drawers of the armoire.

I love the way the gold shines on the Chunky Cork Heart! A few more sequin clusters around the canvas give it just a bit more bling!
