A Little {Card} Inspiration

Hi! Today I am here with a little Blue Fern Studios panel inspiration for you. I have used both the Quatrefoil Panel and the Chain Link Panel along with some other Blue Fern Studios pieces. This month, there have been several occasions in which I have had to make cards to send. So, armed with my great Blue Fern Studios products, I will share two of those cards with you today using panels and other chipboard.

A Card for Ordination
My friend was ordained on the 17th so this was the card I made for her. I started the bottom layer with patterned paper and the Blue Fern Studios Quatrefoil Panel. I inked it in distress ink and then added embellishments on top. It makes a great background piece.

Pin It
I also added a couple of Blue Fern Bits that I colored with gelatos and layered them with my other embellishments.
Papers: Pink Paislee Hope Chest, Memory Box nc and cs 
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Quatrefoil Panel (inked with THDI gathered twigs), Blue Fern Bits (colored with Gelatos metallic mint) 
Stamp: ODBD Daffodil Tag Set 
Stamp Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink gathered twigs, VersaFine vintage sepia 
Embellishments: Prima antique mirror and leaves; Wild Orchid Crafts flowers; Zva Creative pearls; Memory Box pearls; hand-dyed Hug Snug seam binding

A Sympathy Card
Our senior pastor's father passed away this month. I used the above card for inspiration but this time I used the Blue Fern Chain Link Panel. I also inked this panel in distress ink and placed the panel in the background.
Pin It
I then used the Blue Fern Studios Organic Vine. I spritzed it with water and let it sit for a minute. Once the water had soaked in and the chipboard was soft, I began peeling up some of the leaves. I then spritzed with a mix of water and gesso and let it dry overnight. In the morning, I added several gelato colors and spread them around with a wet paintbrush. I then spritzed with a bit of green mist and let dry. I always like this effect. It comes out different every time.

Papers: Pink Paislee Hope Chest, Memory Box nc 
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Chain Link Panel (inked with THDI vintage photo), Organic Vine (colored with Gelatos and misted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Luscious Lime)

Embellishments: Prima antique mirror and leaves; Petaloo Daisies pistachio; Zva Creative pearls

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will use some Blue Fern Studios panels on your next card or other paper creation!
