Fall is when nature turns to GOLD - TGF Blush Bonnie - Mini Layout Collection #2

Hello Everyone,
     Finally, I finished my Mini Layout Collection #2. Fall just started last week and although I'm a bit late but still better than never. I  Love Autumn, it means Christmas is around the corner and here's what I created, I used The Greeting Farm - Blush Bonnie. You can find this beautiful stamp here:

     I did a lot of thinking on how am I gonna create this FALL THEME. I started with my Inkadinkado stamp Fall leaves, stamped it on my Ivory cardstock and  inked it up with my favorite Distress inks and experiment a bit on how I'm going to achieved the color for FALL and bwalah! I'm happy with the color I created. I made a video on how I created these colors if you're interested.

 Please, check out my Youtube Channel: craftgalore108

    After that I started coloring Blush Bonnie and I wanted her hair to be black. I used my Copic markers to color her hair and skin and I paper pieced her dress with My Mind Eye's paper Totally Girl. Then I used my Prima Scripted Stamp not sure about the name of the stamp =(  and stamped it to my Ivory cardstock. The ink I used was Pumice stone by Distress Ink. Then I was just gonna adhere Blush Bonnie on to that cardstock but I was like there's something missing and I started ripping that paper into little strips and I thought of the basket and I started weaving the papers and used my distress ink to make it look worn out. So that's how I came up with this background for Blush Bonnie and then everything fall into place. I used the sentiment that I got from Joann's for a dollar. Then I added glossy accent on the name GOLD and put some gold glitters all over the GOLD name. Then I embellished it with Recollection flowers and also I added gold beads. I used my sewing machine to stitched all the edges of the cardstock, I inked all the edges first with my distress ink and then sewed with my machine. Then that's how I created this beautiful Mini layout, hope you guys like it as much as i do. Hugs, Jas

 At first I was thinking on how I can make it look like she's laying down on the background weave that I made and like the leaves are falling everywhere. I'm not sure if I made it look like that, but would love to hear your comment.

Here are the materials that I used in this project:
Sewing machine
Clear stamps (TGF Blush Bonnie, Inkadinkado, Prima, Joann's)
Gold beads
Copic markers
Memento Ink
Distressing tool
Distress inks
REcollection flowers
My mind's eye Totally Girl papers

Have a nice weekend, hugs Jas.

All things Grow with Love - Mini Layout Collection #1

Hello everyone,
                   I have a mini layout to share with you today and can be a card as well.  I've been wanting to color her since I got her like a month ago. I just have a lot of things to finish personal and unfinished craft wise. So, I finally get a chance to color her and here it is. I colored her hair and skin with my copic markers and the rest of the image I used Prismacolor pencils. Although, the background color very chrismassy,lol! I want her to stand out that's why I colored her like that. The image was designed by Sarah Kay from Stampavie. I found her designs while I was just browsing on the internet for new stamp to LIKE. And glad I did, I have few more of her designs that are in my wish list and can't wait to order those as well. =)
                  Anyways, let me tell you the rest of the details in this card. I decided to sew again, the last time I used my sewing machine was years ago before I had my kids. It's been over 4 years! But anyway, so I sewed some of the edges of the background cardstock and papers. I love, love the shimmers, so I added some Iridescent Medium pretty much all over this card, her hat, and pretty much all the edges of my card. But before that I distress the cardstocks first and ink it with distressed ink. For embellishments I made this tulle flower a long time ago. I used to sell fabric flowers in my etsy shop and I have a lot of left over. I went crazy making them for headbands, clips, you name it but good thing I did not adhere them to the clip or else that's gonna be not good to take it off. I added a strip of red satin fabric and tied it to mimic the ribbon and adhered in the back of the cardstock. Of course, have to add some doilie and underneath it I added gold shimmery tulle. The patterned paper was from My mind's eye.
                Starting today I will collect all the mini layouts that I'm gonna be making and make a mini album out of it. In this collection, I'm concentrating only the images that I love and usually when you make a layout you put pictures but this one are all gonna be my favorite stamp images. Also, I have a reason to use all my stamps than just staring at them, lol!

Here are the materials I used in this project:
Kraft, Red and Ivory cardstock (Base card size: 6.5" x 5.5")
Distress ink - Walnut stain
Patterned paper - My mind's eye (Bella)
Satin red fabric
Clear stamp sentiment by Inkadinkado
Clear stamp by Sarah Kay (Stampavie)
