Butterfly Garden Single Page with foiled elements

Welcome to today’s blog post with me Jowilna. I am sharing a single page layout with you today using the Butterfly Garden Collection, with an interesting twist using hot foil.detail1

For my layout background I switched my traditional white background for this golden caramel coloured stripe.

ButetrflyGardenLayout_JowilnaNolte

To add interest I used my oink mirror foil to create some striking elements for my page. There’s a number of ways you can achieve this look.
I love how the foil picks up on the pink and purple in the paper but also adds an unexpected element of surprise because of its bold colour and shine – just as bold and gorgeous as my friend in the photo.

detail5

I apply gel medium through my stencil and left it to dry, once the gel easy just tacky I added my foil to the gel and rubbed it off using my boned folder.
Then quickly peel off the sheet of foil to reveal this stunning effect. I cut the chevron pieces up to separate them and then added them to my layout.

step1

Secondly I added some ephemera bits from my pack.
I understand the the border is a necessary evil, but i don’t like the thick white border around the elements. But i solve it in a few easy steps…

detail8

I simply use my scissors to trim the excess white around the elements smaller, almost like fussy cutting them. This makes for a much neater and nicer looking element.

step2

And in a few easy steps I created a layout I love with this stunning range and a few clever ways of using my stash.
Until next time – live creatively.

How to create gold foil accents using your stencils

If you haven’t gotten your hands on the TCW Tacky when dry gel medium then you are missing out.
This amazing product can be used with your stencils to create amazing foiled effects.

For this layout I used my Hello Sunshine stencil and my Louann stencil for the dots.
I used the tacky when dry gel applied through the stencils and left to dry for about 30minutes.
Then used my Couture Creations Hot foil, place the foil on top of the gel, burnish with my bone folder and then carefully remove the foil to reveal the foiled stenciled images.TellTheBeesJN_SinglePage

This range of papers come with gorgeous stamps as well.

New Beginnings – Beautiful Celebr8 Paper range

I am absolutely in love with this gorgeous range of papers. I wanted to create a beautiful layout of my niece and these papers were just perfect.Celebr8_paper_main

I loved the fussy cut sheet to cut out all the elements from and to create clusters of layered elements.

CB8_detail5

As much as I love this paper range, I also love the element of surprise and so I added a strip of Kaisercraft paper into the mix.

CB8_detail6

On the background, I added some stencilling with inks for added interest.

Combined with the papers and cut out elements I used some microbeads, mica and diamante to add dimension and interest in between the beautiful floral elements.

CB8_detail4

Paint splats across the background in the colours of the papers make for a visually interesting effect.
I splat over the entire page design, just covering my photo so that the paint splats also land on top of the cut out flowers adding interest over the entire page.

Welcome to the Color by Faith Holy Week blog hop with Joy Clair
This Holy Week we are celebrating with the stunning range of Color by Faith Stamps available from Joy Clair creating beautiful art work.
I created this Bible Journaling spread with the Reckless Love stamp set and Hosanna stamp set.JNHosannaPge

At first I messed up this page so badly, but I took a couple of days to reflect and just pray and rested in the Lord and it came together in the end.
Funny how we try and impress God with perfection when He is just happy with our hearts – after all He knows us much better than the perfection we strive for.

JNdetail3

What does the Bible say about Hosanna? Hosanna is a word from Hebrew that is commonly used as an exclamation of adoration, praise or joy. In the Old Testament, it is applied only in scripture as “help” or “save, I pray.”
In the New Testament, the word Hosanna appears to be a “special kind of respect” referred to the one who saves.
Much like The Lord came and saved this journal page, He saves us daily from sin and imperfection – if only we call on Him.

JNdetail4

I think the title on this page speaks to me the most. I stamped “Hosanna” in Black Versafine Onyx, then added some inking using Oxide inks. The oxide ink lightened the black ink a lot,
and offered me the perfect opportunity to add a shadow of white StazOn Pigment over it slightly off-set for a stunning end result.

page2

I started off with layered of inking and paint on my background.
Stamped leaves and flowers onto cardstock and cut them out. A light inking on the leaves in green adds colour, but it is the white flowers that really pops against the colourful background that I love.

JNdetail2

A few white paint pen dots and graphite scribbles finishes off this page.

Until next time – Hosanna to the King!
Wishing you a blessed Easter, peace and love.

Stenciled tag using expanding mousse

If you are not subscribed to the Short Cuts Craft News letter then you probably missed this tag I created for them using my Moroccan Tile Stencil and Expanding Mousse.EM3JN

The background was an old one I created using Tsukineko Dye ink reinkers and just worked on top of that for a stunning end result.

EM1JN

Simply apply the mousse through a stencil and heat using a heat gun to create a stunning texture and end result.
TIP: Use a good heat gun with lots of heat for a good result, the smaller slower heat guns don’t work as well.

EM2JN

EM4JN

I finished off the tag with a few random bits and pieces from my table and some fun heritage people from Tim Holtz.

EM7JN

EM6JN

I also added some gold and silver Distress Crayon touches around the people – and look ow amazingly they sit on top of the mousse and add shimmer.

EM5JN

The Expanding Mousse and Metallic Distress Crayons were kindly sponsored to me by TroCraft South Africa. All other products used are my own.

Milk Carton boxed with Butterfly Garden

Jowilna on the blog today with the gorgeous Butterfly Garden range of papers. I fell in the love the moment I saw this range and knew that I would love it.
The soft colours and beautiful details make this range perfect for most projects. I chose to create some boxes this time around with the new Scoring Board released.
And in a few minutes I created these beautiful boxes because I had amazing tools.

milkcarton boxes_mainJN
Step 1 – Cut your Butterfly Garden patterned paper 06A to measure 10,5×7″.

step1

step 2 – Place the paper on the score board and score the following lines as per the diagram.
Vertically on the short side at: 2,5″, 5″, 6,5″
Horizontally on the long side at: 2,5″, 5″, 7,5″ and 10″
step2

1000w

step 3 – Once all the scoring is done, use your bone folder to burnish all the lines and fold them.
step5

step 4 – Trim away the bottom edge spine area using your scissors.
step6

step 5 – Continue along the bottom and cut into the fold lines to the first horizontal scoreline only.
step7

step 6 – Start assembling the box. Add a thin line on adhesive on the thin spine area and adhere. Then add tape or adhesive to the bottom flaps and seal the box at the bottom.
step8

step 7 – Pinch the top edge inwards to create the seal at the top. Now decorate your box with the embellishment pack.
step9

Seal the box with a little peg after filling it with chocolates or a small gift that is not too heavy. Decorate the front of your box and add ribbon and other elements as desired.
This box is a slight adjustment to the measurements to make a taller milk carton. I simply adjusted the size of my patterned paper and when scoring i made the center part longer.

How to use 2 stamp sets to create 2 Floral cards – Joy Clair.

Welcome to today’s blog post filled with inspiration using 2 stamp sets from Joy Clair to create 2 different cards perfect for Spring and Summer flowers.

card2

I used the following stamp sets to create these cards.

card_main3

I used the small flower cluster from the Martha’s Flowers stamp set and stamped it repeatedly on white cardstock and used Tombow markers to add colour to the flowers.
The leaves are from The Reckless Love stamp set.

detail2JN

The sentiment was stamped onto a round piece of cardstock, and then the flowers arranged around the circle to create a wreath.

detail3JN

detail4JN

For my second card I created a background using some stencils. On top of the card I added stamped and coloured flowers, that sit on top of a stem that was stamped repeatedly using a sentiment from the Whale Hello stamp set.
The one flowers was adhered flat and the top one was raised using foam tape for dimension.

card1

The smaller flowers were cut from the center of the bigger flowers and arrange across the background.
At the bottom of the card a stamped sentiment raise on foam tape adds more dimension.

How to combine stamps to make a card and tag set with Joy Clair.

I love versatility and when it comes to stamps, combining the different sets from Joy Clair together is effortless. I combined these 2 sets together for my card and tag

God’s Promises and Rise and Shine

20190229_main1JN
For my card I used God’s Promises and Rise and Shine stamp sets together. I started off by stamping the sun from the Rise and Sine set first repeatedly in yellow ink. I then stenciled my sunshine stencil over the top edge of the card using the same yellow inks. Stamped the sentiment in black VersaFine Clair ink below the sun rising, and then added the small sun from God’s Promises stamps set. I stamped the small sun onto white cardstock, blended over it to add colour and then cut it out. It was raise using foam tape and the center of the sun glazed with dimensional glaze. All of these yellow suns are sure to bring some sunshine into someone’s day with this quick and easy card.

detail2
I also created this tag using the Rise and Shine stamp set. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and inked the edges around the side only using yellow ink. Some torn experimental pieces of paper using spray inks were sewn at the bottom of the tag in layers. I used the rooster image stamped and painted for another project, but it turns out that I didn’t use it and so the head was chopped off and recycled for this tag. I like how the rooster looks like he is shouting the sentiment from the rooftops.

detail7

Remember to add some diamante and embellishments to further dress up your tag and add interest.

Feeling Lucky with Joy Clair Stamps.

On the Joy Clair blog today we are hopping along with this Lucky Charm stamp set creating tons of amazing projects to get you inspired.
I fell in love with this little guy the moment I saw him. I created this quick card using green which is not my favorite colour but I love how he turned out.
We used the Lucky Charm stamp set to create with.

20190301luckycharm_main

lucky-charm_large

The background was done using H2O’s that I mixed onto a plastic packet and stamped onto my white card front. I left it to dry naturally to create those interesting lines.

20190301luckycharm_detail1

The rainbow was stamped onto white cardstock and coloured using metallic pens from Kaisercraft. I love the shimmer these pens add.

20190301luckycharm_detail2

The sentiment was raise using foam tape strips – and what an amazing sentiment this is – I can see myself using it lots in the future.

20190301luckycharm_detail5

This little guy was coloured using watercolour paint and the gold in the buckles added using my gold gel pen.

20190301luckycharm_detail3

I love how this card came together using some of my favorite products and now one of my favorite new stamp sets from Joy Clair.
