Pretty Pink Rose Card

We were asked this week to create something using one of Paper House Productions many  3D stickers.  They have so many beautiful dimensional stickers it was hard to choose.

Pretty Pink Rose Card 7594

Supplies Used:

My inspiration for this card came from a small while porcelain frame with pink rosebuds.

My finished card is 4 1/2″ X 4 1/2″ and the pretty pink rose used on my card comes from the Sisters 3D sticker sheet.

Oh Snap!

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a mixed media card for Paper House. I enjoyed using the 3D stickers a lot because they’re so fun, beautiful, and colorful! They add a lot of dimension and visual interest to the page.

To make this card I cut a sheet of 12 x 12 watercolor paper in half, and folded it. I covered the front with gesso. While it was wet I applied narrow ripped up strips of paper,put more gesso on top,then dried it with a heat gun. I applied some texture paste with a stencil. I took my  water soluble oil pastels, and scribbled black around the margin, and different areas all over the card. I sprayed it with water and brushed the areas where the lines were, to soften them. I held the card upright and let the colors run all over.  The color settling into the edges around the strips is how the black lines got there. I dried the card after each color. I did the same with some scribbled on brown.  I painted on some of a sap green and brown  watercolor. You can put on as much color as you want, just avoid painting the paper strips because they will rip.

The butterfly is a die cut made with white card stock. I painted it, then added some gesso, followed by yellow watercolors, I inked the edges with brown ink, and outlined the indented areas with a brown watercolor pencil. I softened the lines by brushing them with water.

I used a yellow watercolor pencil on the right margin, and left them as is. I painted scattered areas with yellow watercolor paint. I decided the stickers needed some white around them. I dabbed on some gesso, dried it, then applied the stickers. I rubbed on some gold mica powder in different spots. Using both the pad and my fingers, I dabbed on some transference ink on the butterfly and the card.

Thank you so much for looking, and I hope you find some scrappy time this week!

Sisters

Hello Paper House fans!  I am back again to share a layout I created using a photo with one of my sisters and myself. I have 5 sisters and when I saw the Sisters 3 D Stickers, I knew I had to have them because I would get lots of chances to use them on my layouts. I also used a mixture of Paper House papers with them.

Sisters Layout Supplies:

I love this cool background on this Emerald Woodwork paper, it is so pretty! I used a scalloped circle cut file and stitched it in place. I layered my photo on top of one of the tags:

For my layout, I used a woodgrain background paper and cut a background cut file on white cardstock  with my Silhouette Cameo that reminded me of “grapes”.  I added the Wine Country 3D Stickers here and there to draw the eye around the page.

To add the photos,  I punched out all the 3X3 photos with a 3 inch circle paper punch and adhered them underneath the cut file to frame them.

I love the dimension that the 3D stickers give to my page.  Have a wonderful day!

Mini Floral Wreath

 

I get some of my best creative inspiration late at night…I was planning on making a card using these 3-D puffy stickers when a light bulb moment happened and I decided to make a wreath instead. I’m pleased with the way it turned out, a little different and very easy to make.

How to make a Mini Floral Wreath using 3D Puffy Stickers:

  1. Wrap wreath with satin ribbon.
  2. Start with the large pansy flowers and glue evenly around wreath.
  3. Fill in wreath by gluing on the smaller flowers, butterflies and leaves. (The leaves are from the lady bug sticker sheet.)
  4. Tie a thin silver ribbon around wreath to use as a hanger.
  5. Make a bow from the sheer ribbon and glue onto the top of the wreath.

Tip:  Use a good craft glue to adhere the stickers to the ribbon.

Have a great weekend crafters!

Happy Together

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a mixed media page for Paper House. I love the colors and details on the Discover paper, and just had to use it!

Here is a fun photo of my son and his girlfriend, I think they’re so cute together.

Supplies Used:

2016-05-02 16.06.39  upper left

To make this page I used mod podge to glue the top piece of scrapbook paper to a piece of black cardstock, and glued on two more sheets of old scrapbook paper underneath.I did this so the paper wouldn’t warp from the materials I planned to apply.

 I dabbed on gesso with a cosmetic sponge,let it dry, then put a piece of cheesecloth on, and glued it on in a couple areas with glossy accents. I dipped a brush into gesso, mixed it with a little water on my craft sheet, and flung it on the paper.  I distressed all the edges of the pieces, layered the tags, and put a photo on top. I used foam core board and masking tape between layers, to give it some dimension, while attaching it to the page.

After I had the pieces on, I stenciled on some texture paste.  I made kind of wreath for Aron with dried pressed flowers,dried moss, gold and silver metal chain, rhinestones,feathers,and pearls.

I decided that my arrangement looked too busy with the tags under the top photo, so I brushed gesso on and added some colors. I painted with an aqua blue sparkly water color,and when dry,brushed on then gold mica powder with water. I put on lavender paint, and when dry, brushed on dry pearl colored mica powder.

 I took a piece of black tulle and covered the paper layers with it, I used masking tape  to draw the tulle tight onto the bottom of the layers. I glued some areas on with glossy accents, then cut all the tulle off that wasn’t right on the paper. I put more aqua blue paint on, then silver mica powder.I brushed on dry copper mica powder all over to pick up a color of the sunset. To complement the copper I brushed on turquoise Dylusions ink around the edges, and some on the layers too. The Dylusions made the page work, as it added some “punch”, or definition, to the design.

You can see some Vintaj metal pieces, seed beads, and glass glitter. I added the adorable  butterflies at the top to kind of tie the page together.

Happy Monday Paper House Fans!

It’s Lisa here today sharing a layout I created using 2 lines of the ColorWays collections- Emerald and Atlantis. I love the mix of teal and green together!

Once again I used a photo of myself . I think it’s important to scrap a few “me” layouts here and there, so that when I am gone, my family can learn a bit more about me.

Enjoy Life PHEnjoy Life Supply List:

I started this layout out by adding some strips of papers and also a few of the cards and stitching them in place. I added a cute Hummingbird Puffy Sticker on top of my big flower:
