A Card & A Layout with Blue Fern Studios

Today I wanted to share a card and a layout I created for you. They are similar yet different. I started out with the same exact background for each piecewhite cardstock with blue modeling paste and drips. I thought it would be fun to see what happens when I start with the same base but then turn them each into something unique. Let's look at my creations.

The Card
For my card today I created a feminine card using the chipboard shoe from the Blue Fern Studios Icon Set 2. Send this to a friend and invite her to go shopping! I covered the chipboard shoe in gesso and then added brown micro beads and Glossy Accents. Underneath the shoe is a heart from the Blue Fern Studios Heart Panel Chunky. I painted it with gesso and then inked it with chalk ink.

Embellishments: Finnabair checkered stencil with Liquitex light modeling paste and Glimmer Mist moonlight; Angora watercolors; May Arts twine; misc. measuring tape; Prima Chantelle Medallion, leaves, and butterflies; VersaMagic turquoise gem ink; burlap; sewing machine

The Layout
Next I created this 8 1/2 x 11 layout using Blue Fern Studios Ironwork Accents and the Optimist Word Set. I used the word "happy" from the set and used it for the title. Both chipboard pieces are painted in black gesso. I then added Glossy Accents to the title only. I wanted to give it a little shine.

Both the card and layout are fabulous. You are very inspirational. FYI...I just received another order for my Blue Fern Studio chipboard. I can't get enough. LOL

Jennifer, yes, this is the little on that received the afghan. Her mom said she laid on it on the floor when they got home and fell asleep. Too sweet! :) She is a precious one for sure!

And Debby, you crack me up. So glad you love the chippies. They are awesome for sure! I can't get enough either. :) Enjoy!

I love the first card you made. How did you make the tiny squares underneath? And where did you get that fabulous clip art picture?
