Explore Card


Hello!

For today's post, I am sharing a layered card with 2 pieces of Southern Ridge Chipboard. For the Pattern paper and colour scheme, I went into my scrap bin. A few years back, I created a mini Album with this paper line and I found numerous left over pieces to use for this card.


For the 2 chipboard pieces, I covered both with Multi Media glue and sprinkled each with Micro Fine Glitter. Royal Red for the Explore Fun Word and Champagne for the Elegant Vintage Flourishes. I allowed it to dry fully before taping the excess off. 

I used a Tag Dies and a set of multi-sized Rectangle Stitched Dies with my Big Shot to cut my paper layers for the card. I added some vintage ephemera to the tag and a piece of green seam binding to the tag.

Let's Hang Out Card by Corina Finley


Hello!

I am very excited to share my card with you this week. I loved creating my background - once again, I used a Stencil. I also used the lovely Starfish chipboard laser cuts.


I created my card base with coloured cardstock. On a piece of white cardstock, I applied texture paste through the Swiss Cheese Stencil. I allowed it to air dry. I then replaced the stencil and used Distress inks in three shades of blue to colour the bubbles. I then applied a light coat of multi media with a dry brush and sprinkled with clear glitter. This effect is hard to see in pictures but adds dimension in person.

For the starfish, I dipped each in white glue (that dries clear) face down and then sprinkled with Sahara micro glitter. I tapped the excess off and allowed to air dry. For my Shells & Sea Horses (Inkadinkado Stamp set), I stamped with Versamark and used Black Fine Embossing Powder. I then used Distress Ink and a waterpen to colour in and blend the colours.

Journey Card


Hello!

Summer has gone by very quickly is seems! I had the chance last week to spend a few hours in my Studio. I created a few cards that I will be sharing with you over the next month or so. Just like my last post on my blog, I decided to use Distress Ink Oxides and a Stencil for the back drop of my card.


To create the background, I second generation stamped using a large Prima Script background stamp with black archival ink directly over top of the Distress Oxide background.  I applied grey metallic paint over the Gear Stencil with a blending tool.  I used my heat tool to dry.


I painted the gears with the same grey metallic paint. I spritzed and inked some roses in a variety of colours and sizes. I set these aside to dry naturally. 

With an extra piece of the inked background paper and decided on this large bold sentiment from a Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection Stamp set. I stamped with versamark and applied ultra Fine black embossing powder and heat set. I then used a clear glitter pen to enhance the words, Journey, Truely, and Changed.

Secrets Tag by Corina Finley


Thank you for joining me Today!

This week I decided to create a Tag, played with a stencil and alter some awesome chipboard elements.

I created my layers from black and manila cardstock. I used a large Tag die to cut the black cardstock. The Tag base was stamped this a Distress Lined Background stamp with versamark, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set.

For the Manila cardstock, I applied Distressed Oxide in Fired Brick using an Ink Blending tool.  I dried the piece, then flicked with water and used a piece of paper towel to blot up the excess.


I used a stencil next with a metallic grey paint. I applied the paint unevenly with a Ink blending tool - wanting some lighter areas. Set aside to dry fully. Then the stencil was reapplied and each brick was traced using a black fine tip marker.

To alter the Med Key Holes, I used thick black embossing powder, while still wet (hot), I sprinkled with black glass glitter.  The Bolts and Plaque were painted with Black Gesso. The Mini Wood Key was painted with silver paint and a little was added to the 4 Bolts.

Seam binding, black twine and a metal Secret Charm was added for a finishing touch!

Happy 150th Canada!


Hello & Happy July!

We just celebrated Canada's 150th Birthday on July 1st. I am truly proud to be Canadian and grateful to live here. As many of you already know, Southern Ridge Trading Company is a Canadian Company and to celebrate, she released some wood and chipboard die cuts. 

I created a card for the occasion with the special release and enjoyed working with them. Even thou, the Mini Wood Maple Leaf and the Canada 150 Maple Leaf die cuts are beautiful in there raw form, I was wanting to add some colour and glitter. I coated the die cuts with multi media and used Distress Glitter in Fired Brick to cover. I allowed them to dry before tapping off the excess. 


I layered cardstock and pattern paper to create a card base. I added sewing to the edges of two layers and seam binding to one side. I distressed a rectangle piece of cardboard,  added a bit of glitter and twine. 

I backed the glittered Canada 150 Maple Leaf with grid pattern paper. I adhered it on top of the cardboard piece in the center of the card. I also added the sentiment and two Mini Wood Maple Leaf.

You & Me Layout


Hello & Welcome!

Thank you for joining me. I have created a 12x12 Scrapbook Layout of my boys using a variety of pattern paper, cardstock, die cuts, embossing powder, two wonderful Chipboard Die Cuts from Southern Ridge Trading Company!


The Time Piece Kit comes in 4 pieces that you assemble. I applied black Gesso to the base and the clock hands. I embossed the numbers, gears and the Demask Corner with Chunky embossing powder and once cooled dry brushed with grey and black paint to reduce the shine.

 

As you can see in the picture above of the Demask Cornerlightly dry brushing paint over embossing Powder gives the Die Cut a vintage aged appearance.

Junk Journal Pages


Hello Everyone!

As you can probably tell from my last few posts - I am addicted to Junk Journaling! I have had a love of creating hand bound books and mini Album but I never Junk Journaled! It is a whole new world that I am learning and my favourite embellishments (Southern Ridge chipboard) is working wonderfully! Just meant to be! 


The best part is that because they are gorgeous just as they are 'raw', not much needs to enhance there detail or beauty. For my pages that you will see below, I used 3 colours of Treasure Gold that was gifted to me at the Creativation Mega Show in Phoenix this past January. Southern Ridges Booth was next door to the wonderful and talented owners of Paper Artzy out of England. Using my finger tip, I applied the wax gilt to the chipboard pieces. It goes on so smooth and tries incredibly fast! And that is it!  


Here I used the vintage scissors from the Dressmaker Mix set. Perfect!


I love how this one turned out! I only applied glue to the base of the wing. This will allow me to use it as a tuck spot for other items.


Above, I used a small bird from the Swooping Birds set. Love it!
