{3} New Creations to Share

Today I have three different projects for youa card, an altered binder, and a layout. All three creations use the new Blue Fern Garden papers. I hope you have had a chance to try them. They are truly wonderful! Now let's look at my creations.

The Card
For my card today, I used the Blue Fern Garden Signature paper. I wanted to create a card that left the paper 'as is' but made it come alive if that makes sense. I did use some of the Blue Fern Garden Timeless paper too for the die cut leaves on the card.

Pin It
I also used the Little Bird Set chipboard and hid the bird among the flowers. To color him, I added some distress ink, a little Sharpie for the beak, and a pearl for the eye.
Papers: Blue Fern Studios Signature and Timeless, Memory Box notecard, Paper Trey ink white cs 
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Little Bird Set (inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink and a Sharpie for the beak) 
Stamp Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink brushed corduroy 
Embellishments: Poppystamps Lorelai Leaf die, Stampin' Up Fancy Fan embossing folder, Kaisercraft chocolate pearl, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and leaves, Petaloo Botanica pistachio minis, Prima Corine flower, sewing machine

The Binder
I needed a new recipe binder so I thought I would alter this 3-ring binder and turn it into my new recipe binder. I used the Blue Fern Garden Parlour and Calling Cards papers along with the Beaded Strings chipboard.
Pin It
To color the chipboard, I put on a layer of gesso followed by some Shimmerz Texturez. Once that was dry, I randomly painted on some Luminarte Twinkling H2Os to match the papers.
Papers: Blue Fern Garden Parlour and Calling Cards 
Binder: Simple Stories 6x8 Sn@p! binder 
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Beaded Strings (painted Shimmerz Texturez gold mine, Shimmerz Coloringz Mama Sings the Blues, Luminarte Twinkling H2O tahitian blue) 
Embellishments: Petaloo Botanica fuchsia minis, Faux Dried ivory minis (painted blue), and Burlap natural blossoms; Prima black crystals; Basic Grey canvas tag; American Crafts Thickers; misc. black lace; sewing machine

And finally, here is my 8 1/2 x 11 layout. I used the March Blue Fern Studios sketch challenge for my page. There is still time for you to play along, so I hope you will join in the fun. Click here for the details.

I used three of the new Blue Fern Garden papersIn Bloom, Boudoir, and Calling Cards. I also used three different pieces of chipboardShabby Brick Bits, Blue Fern Bits (hearts), and the title is from the Valentine Word Set.
Pin It
To color the Shabby Brick chipboard, I randomly painted on some gesso. I wanted to leave some of it raw since I was coloring the other chipboard on the page. For the Blue Fern Bits (the hearts), I used some embossing powder and various paints to get a glossy and bumpy look. I painted the title from the Valentine Word set with acrylic paint.
Papers: Blue Fern Garden Boudoir, In Bloom, and Calling Cards 
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Shabby Brick Bits (painted with gesso), Valentine Word Set (painted w/FW Pearlescent acrylic platinum pink), Blue Fern Bits (embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang ep hibiscus rose orange and painted w/FW Pearlescent acrylic platinum pink) 
Stamp Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink frayed burlap 
Embellishments: Tim Holtz mini paper clip, misc. month ticket, mini paper bag, Prima songbird vine pink flowers, sewing machine

Ah, Patter, I missed this one a few weeks back and have just now seen these---lovely! How do you store the binder without mussing the 3-D
stuff on the the outside, though?

Thanks for your inspirations---Jennifer in Ohio
