Vintage Christmas and other news from Blue Fern Studios.

It's never too early for a great Holiday collection, right? :-)
Blue Fern Studios have come up with the perfect collection to get you in the holiday mood.
 I will share the latest images of the Vintage Christmas as well as some more 
awesome news from them.

If you plan to make cards, tags, or gifts for your family and friends, this beautiful collection will 
definitely get you started.  -And don't forget those projects for your home,.... or how about 
displaying a few layouts with photos of Christmas past?  
The Blue Fern Vintage Christmas collection is just what you need.  

Here are some more close ups of this elegant paper collection; featuring shades of 
blue, green, red, pink, and neutral tones, all with a true vintage look. 

Those 'calling cards' are just perfect for all those fun to make Christmascards 
to be started on sooner than you think! :-)

We are also excited to introduce a brand new line of products called Imagine Ink.  These products were created to coordinate with the Vintage Christmas line.  No more searching for just the right color of mist, embossing powder, or glitter.  We have done all the work for you!

Our three new mists are Cotton Candy, Jingle Bells, and Winter Mint and they are sure to add just the right amount of luster and interest to your projects.

And they have added glitter!  
These three colors, Phoenix, Caribbean, and Pyrite will bring just the right amount of sparkle!

Now,...wouldn't it be wonderful to have some coordinating Embossing Powder?  
We have taken care of that, too.  What an awesome way to enhance our chipboard designs!  
Once again, we have taken the guess-work out of it by selecting four colors that will coordinate with the Vintage Christmas collection - Lucky, Poinsettia, Petal, and Fern

Thanks for looking in to see some of the new products coming soon from Blue Fern Studios.
Have a lovely week end all of you!!

My Blue Fern Studios projects for September using NEW Autumn Anthology.

Hi there. I hope you are all well.
I have been pretty busy juggling two jobs and trying to fit in some me time in between.
At least it's good to have some awesome supplies to play with when I DO find the time,....
My two pages here show off some sheets from the new beautiful paper collection Autumn Anthology from Blue Fern Studios.  Michelle Singh simply came up with a mixture of stunning designs and some of my most favourite colours.(again!)

Here is my first page with the collection:

Did you know that Blue Fern Studios now even carry mists? There will be new mists with each collection and I used two of the new colours here; Imagine Inks Leaf and Sky.

I painted the chipboard title-words a neutral beige colour and decorated with some micro beads.
I used  the stunning  Jackie's Window to ground my design and this one is also painted with a mix of acrylic paint and some green mist. After it dried I went over the edges with a small chalk ink pad.

As you can see I  used some of the new stamps on my page. 
I used all three designs from the Essential Textures set. 
I cut out the banner that you can see under the chipboard from one of the calling cards.
The title is made of a couple of words from the  Chunky Words set.

To make my flower cluster complete I added a few small chipboard twigs called Berry Stems. 
I love the brown colour they were painted and the delicate look of them. 

Ok, now for my second page for today:

 Another beautiful sheet from the Autumn Anthology collection
I actually fussy cut a part of one paper and added it on top of this blue one, (in case you go looking for a paper that looks like this :-D)

I used the Royal Heart Frame to surround the photo on top of the layers of paper and calling cards.

After I painted the heart frame a suitable colour I heat-embossed it with gold using one of the same textured stamps as above. I think the look is really neat!! 

I added a few bits and pieces from the inside of larger chipboard pieces. 
I find these are good to hold on to as they can be really useful.

 As you see from the shot here I have added quite a lot of media to my layered papers. 
I added different Prima Art Ingredients beads as well as glitter gel, paint, gesso, and ink. 
I used some Fine Prima Art Sugar which means there is a certain shimmer to the page that does not come through in the pictures.

Finally a little reminder that there's still ample time to join in our sketch challenge for September.

Below is a picture of the sketch and a page I made as an example.

You can read ALL bout the challenge HERE.

Thanks for looking!

A Christmas collection from Blue Fern Studios.

I just had to pop in with a late post to share this upcoming gorgeous collection from Blue Fern Studios. YES!  There will be a Christmas colection and a beautiful one at that!!
Just yesterday I was wondering to myself if there would be a holiday line or not, and I got my answer even before I could ask the question!!

Here is a preview:

The collection is by Michelle Singh and it's called Vintage Christmas.
It will contain six double sided papers as well as coordinating chipboard, stamps and also three new colours of mist. I can't wait!!

A page for the Blue Fern September sketch challenge.

At the beginning of each month there is a gorgeous sketch to inspire you on the Blue Fern Studios blog. Here's the one for September. You are hereby all invited to check it out!! :-)

I have more or less followed the sketch as it is but you are allowed to turn it around as you wish 
and adapt it to your satisfation. You'll find out more about the challenge HERE!

I used one of the Frolic papers for my page. 

I even used some lovely chipboard here. 
The floral piece behind the photo is called Paisley & Vine Medley and I even used the 
Notebook Edges as an accent .

The pretty baloon is a stamp by Blue fern Studios that belongs to the Journey set.

I cut some sweet leaves with my Silhouette to add to the mixture of Prima flowers and flowers 
that I had in my stash. The cute hearts and arrows come from the Directions set and were 
quite simply just pinted black.

The foilage was cut with a Sizzix Bigz die called Garden Greens and it was designed by Tim Holtz.
I really am sooo in love with my new Big Shot Plus that can cut up to A4 size. 

That's all for now my friends! Hope to see you again soon!! :-)
