Finally got my mojo back and scrapped a layout!

Also I set myself this challenge of not buying anymore products until I have used some of my older stuff. Is not going to be easy but I finally used some of my Prima flowers I have sitting in jars, looking all pretty. Also going through my stash of Scrapware chippie, organizing them so I now know what I have got. Used some of it on my layout. I based this layout on this month's sketch from Once Upon a Sketch. Came across this fabulous site while surfing and decided to give it a go as I love their sketches.


I sprinkled the frames with Gelatins Gelly powder - Teal you what and heat set it. The leaves were sealed with gesso and sprayed with Tattered Angels meadow green Glimmer Mist and some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Scrapware = perfect for card making!

Especially the card kits, all you need to make your perfect card. Sharing  a few cards using of course some gorgeous Scrapware chippie!
First up a baby boy card:

Products used: Baby card kit CH473. Here I sprayed the chippie with some tattered leather glimmer mist, ran it through my big shot using the swiss dot embossing folder. Finished it off with some liquid pearls on the embossed parts.
Next a baby girl card:
Again used the Babycard kit CH473, the pram is so cute! I covered the pram with modelling paste, used a music script stamp to imprint the paste and sprayed it with flower power and coffee shop glimmer mist and let it dry overnight. Finished it off with some lace and pearls.
The next two cards I used the same technique with the modelling paste but used coffee shop and antique brass glimmer mist for the butterfly with a script stamp and tattered leather and cranberry for the watering can with a chicken wire stamp.
Product used: 3D flourish butterfly large CH421, I just the used the base butterfly!
Product used: Watering cans CH484, Iron Fence 2 small CH452 The fences are coated in Tim Holtz weathered wood distressing powder.
The last card I used the dress from the girls card kit CH472 and dressed it up with paper, lace and flowers.
So there you have it! I hope I have inspired you to get out your Scrapware chippie and start creating some cards :)
Till next time!
