Creations for Blue Fern Studios

Today I have a layout and a card to share with you using the new Blue Fern Studios paper line called "Sanctuary." It is a beautiful line that can be used for anything, any time of year. I am going to show you how I used it on a heritage page and a Christmas card. You will see how versatile this new line is! Let's get started.

Cherish
This is my husband back in about 1966. Wasn't he a cutie? Well, I must say he still is. LOL! Anyway, for this page I used, the papers Sanctuary Bountiful and Sanctuary Conservatory. Such beautiful colors for this 8 1/2 x 11 heritage page.
To cover the Splattered Circles and Spare Parts chipboard pieces, I covered them in gesso, and then used some distress stains in various colors.

To cover the Adore, Love, Cherish chipboard piece (the title), I used the same technique as above but then I also added some darker gelatos to the chipboard.
Papers: Blue Fern Studios Sanctuary Bountiful and Conservatory
Stamps: Tim Holtz Ultimate Grunge
Stamp Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink brushed corduroy
Blue Fern Studios chipboard: Splattered Circles; Adore, Love, Cherish; Spare Parts (painted with gesso and Tim Holtz Distress Stain vintage photo and brushed corduroy)

Christmas Wishes
For this card I used the Sanctuary Meadows of Time and Sanctuary Conservatory papers. The chipboard piece is called Seeing Stars.
To alter the chipboard, I covered it in silver Inka Gold and then added some silver and gold embossing. To finish, I added pearls around the edge.

I first saw the photo and wondered if you had a son as well as your girls. My second guess was your husband. LOL It is a wonderful layout. Great job with the Blue Fern Studio chipboard and paper.
