Stamperia Poppies

    Hello FotoBella Fans, and welcome back! Drea with the Design Team, and I made another page in my art journal to showcase the Stamperia Poppies Stamp from FotoBella.com.


     
     The night sky was done with some water and Dylusion's Paints, ( Vibrant Turquoise, White Linen, and Black Marble) applied with my fingers. Then I used White Linen again to splatter the stars with a stencil brush. 

     After embossing the Poppies onto white cardstock, I painted them with several layers of watered down Postbox Red, Tangerine Dream, Lemon Zest, and Polished Jade Dylusion's Paints, waiting for each layer to dry, before applying the next. Once they were completely dry, I used an X-acto knife and scissors to cut them out, and gave them a light coat of Wink of Stella (Clear) for some sparkle.



     Before adhering the poppies though, I used the top right side of the Stamperia Wonderland Stencil to the top right side of my page, with white gesso. Then I went over it with Prima Marketing Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold) using my fingers. 

     The quote was done in Photoshop, and colored with Distress Inks (Hickory Smoke, Broken China, and Cracked Pistachio).




          Finally, I stamped the Stamperia Grassland Stamp along the bottom with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. 



     Thanks for your visit, and shop FotoBella.com for these supplies and more!

Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss Cards

     Hello again! Drea with the Design Team, and I have a set of cards to share with you, made with the Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.com. Each card (measuring 6" X 9") features something from the Noteworthy pack and the wooden birdcages, using a variety of techniques and products, like the one seen below, coated with Bo Bunny Gold Stencil Paste and Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder.



     The background was done with Bo Bunny White Gesso, also lightly applied to the gold strip of burlap from my own stash, and colored with a few spritzes of Distress Spray Stains (Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber).



     On the "So Grateful" card, I applied Bo Bunny White Gesso to all of the birdcages, following a light coat of Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder.
   


     The larger die from the Noteworthy pack was inked around the edges using my Blending Tool with Pine Needle Distress Ink. Then I popped up the bottom birdcage placed onto the smaller die.
   



     The banner pieces on the "Hello Beautiful" card, were inked along the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.
   


      Then I applied Bo Bunny Silver Stencil Paste to the large key from the Royal Stencil Set, the birdcage, and smeared onto parts of the paper, giving it some shimmer and translucency.



     I'm saving this last card for the next St. Patrick's Day, to celebrate the first date with my husband. But to spell LOVE, I had to cut the LY from the "Lovely" die, and used the leftover frame on the layer underneath. 



     The birdcage was coated with Bo Bunny Silver Stencil Paste, and a light coat of Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder. Then I added more sparkle with some micro beads added to the flower centers.



          So which birdcage technique did you like the most? I still can't decide between the Gold (shown on the first card) or Silver Stencil Paste, (shown on the last card) with the Verdigris Embossing Powder.

1st Birthday Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss Layout

     Do you have a little princess in your life? The Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss I Want It All Bundle combined with some Gold Stencil Paste from FotoBella.com is all you need to scrap your own diva. Auntie Drea here, with this layout starring my adorable niece!



     The frames were cut from the back of  the "peace "paper. Then I punched the sides of the "joy" sheet, adding Gold Stencil Paste to the edges, and along the strip of the "charm" paper.



     The Gold Stencil Paste was also applied to the one, from the Chipboard Thickers. Then I embossed "Birthday" with Ranger's Sea Foam White Embossing Powder, onto a banner piece cut from the back of the "euphoria" sheet.



     Finally, I used one of the crowns from the Royal Stencil Set, included in the Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss I Want It All Bundle, to apply more Gold Stencil Paste.

Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss 2 Page Tutorial

     Hello FotoBella fans! Drea with the Design Team, and I grabbed these photos from Facebook of my aunt and cousin's recent trip to London, for this 2 pager using the Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.com.



*************************************************************
                          Supplies:                                                                Tools:

   * Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss Bundle                                      * Blending Tool
   * Bo Bunny Gold Stencil Paste                                             * Pop Dot Adhesive
   * Black Soot Distress Ink                                                      * Heat Gun
   * Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder
   * Embossing Ink Pad
   
     *************************************************************
Directions:

1. Cut frame from both "Felicity" papers to measure 5 1/4" X 8" on the inside. There's also a pink version, if you'd prefer. 



2. Use Blending Tool with Black Soot Distress Ink around the edges.



3. Adhere two photos (4" X 5 1/4") to the center of each green "Serene" page, and attach frame over them.



4. Cut more pieces from leftover "Felicity" papers, ink edges again with Black Soot Distress Ink, and adhere to the corners. 



5. Use chipboard Thickers to add your title to the center pages along the top.



6. Add keys with the Bo Bunny Royal Stencil using Gold Stencil Paste.



7. Once dry, reattach the stencil, and lightly pat with embossing ink. Add Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder, and set with heat gun. It'll start to bubble, but don't worry, as the bubbles go away as they dry.



8. Add banner pieces from the Layered Chipboard onto each page, as shown.



9. Use pop dots to adhere the clock and Dream Big die cuts from the Noteworthy.



10. Use Blending Tool again, with Black Soot Distress Ink, to go around the edges of the other banner pieces from the Noteworthy pack, and glue to bottom of the frame. Add longer banner with key, to the top right page under the corner piece.



11. Finally, add the date under the large key on the left page, from the chipboard Thickers.

Lollipop Day Tutorial

     Hello and happy National Lollipop Day! Drea here with the FotoBella Design Team, and I'm featuring these treats on a card made with the Bo Bunny Sweet Moments Collection from FotoBella.com.



     I punched the edges of the green paper from the 12 X 12 Collection Pack, and layered the large die cut from the Noteworthy Pack on top, after blending the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink. Then I added the cake from the Layered Chipboard




     The sentiment was done with the alpha stickers found in the Bo Bunny Forever Young Collection




     To make the lollipops you'll need some circles cut from white cardstock. I cut mine on my Cricut Expression at 1 1/4". Then you'll need some embroidery thread in white and your color of choice. Cut the threads at three feet long, and divide the white thread in half, so you're left with three strands. Make a knot on the end, and with a sewing needle, pierce through the center of your circle.




     Add a generous amount of glue to the center half of circle, and start twisting your threads while forming a spiral. Continue to twist and glue until you've covered the circle completely.




     To make the stick, simply cut the swabs off the ends of a Q-Tip, and tie a ribbon on top. 



     I hope you'll try these lollipops, and have a real one too, on this National Lollipop Day! Thanks for looking, and get the Bo Bunny Sweet Moments Collection at FotoBella.com!
