How to use hotfoil stamps with spray inks for stamping.

Hi! It’s time to create a colourful background with stamping and hot foil stamps.
Hello and welcome to another blog post with me Jowilna. Today I am sharing a single page layout where I created my own stamped background patterned paper with a hot foil stamp. I love how this turned out and its so fun and easy to create.

step 1 – Place your hot foil stamp onto your craft sheet or scrap paper face up. Use spray ink and mist your hot foil stamp liberally.
step1

step 2 – Flip a sheet of white cardstock over onto the stamp and lightly press down onto the paper where the stamp is underneath it. This pressure will transfer the colour onto the paper. Repeat several times using a single colour.
step2

step 3 – Repeat step 1 and 2 with 2 more colours of spray inks. Keep stamping the image onto the background until you are happy with the look. Leave the ink to dry.
step3

step 4 – Stamp some more flowers, but this time I used an ink pad to stamp the flowers and cut them out.
step4
step 5 – Cut out some extra flowers. I also trimmed the white edges off of the elements form the die-cut ephemera packet.
step5
Assemble your layout by adding a 3″ (7.5cm) wide strip of patetrned paper on the left edge of your background. Add your photo using foam tape. Then add your stamped flowers and cut out elements.
detail6
Add some embellishments and diamante. To add interest to the large flowers, add some gel medium and then sprinkle with gold glitter and leave to dry.
detail4
These colourful flowers are the perfect element for any project and by changing up the way you use your hot foil stamps, you can change the look and effect.

Until next time – I hope you experiment with all those gorgeous hot foil stamps you have.

Mixed Media Layout with Jowilna – Couture Creations.

I am sharing this layout using some of the gorgeous dies available combined with the versatile Le Petit Jardin paper range. With the new range of Modern essentials dies its easy to add beautiful details to any project. And that’s exactly what I did with this layout. I used my die-cuts to frame the photo on one side and the Le Petit Jardin Ephemera on the other side – this way I am placing the focus on my photo which is ultimately the most important part of telling the story.sweetlayout_JN

I used the Le Petit Jardin dies, corner and flourish cut out of blue cardstock for my layout. The 2 x corner cuts was used to frame the photo on the right hand side.

detail5

The flourish die-cut was grouped together with some ephemera elements on the left hand side of the layout.
detail8To add colour to my layout I used watercolour paint to splat colour onto the background. The colours picked were found in my photo. I love how it makes the layout bright and fun, and together with the paper also a bit grown up.
detail4This range is truly versatile and I like adding colour to it. The colours added to this layout makes for a fun and youthful project.
The donuts sticker used makes further adds to the accent colours used and is a fun addition to an otherwise serious layout.

Until next time – have fun using your die-cuts on your projects – adding texture and pattern. But above all have fun!

I Believe layout featuring Le Petit Jardin

Welcome to the blog today – I am sharing a beautiful simplistic layout with you today using the Le Petit Jardin range.
This range won’t be complete with the amazing Poppy Hot foil stamp added to it. I think its my new favorite of all designs.

layout
step 1 – Cut out some flowers from the paper #04. I cut out a large selection of all the different flowers to create my clusters with.

step1

step 2 – Cut a strip 3″ (7.5cm) wide from the striped paper piece. Trim the barcode off as well to use from this sheet. Adhere the striped piece flush at the top of your background cardstock piece, and the barcode strip just below it.
step2Create some hotfoil Poppy elements to use on your layout.

step 3 – Heat your foil stamp in the GoPress and Foil. Place gold foil face down onto the hot stamp.
step3

step 4 – Place patterned paper on top of the foil and then add your shims. I used the back of paper #08  as well as some other scraps to foil my flowers onto.
Send the stacked foil stamp through your GCut machine.
step4
step 5 – Remove the shims and the foiled paper to reveal the foiled image.
Remember to keep your foiled scraps to use – I show you how I recycle these at a later stage.
step5
step 6 – Cut out your foiled flowers – I made some in gold and some in turquoise. See how the patterned paper background adds interest to the foiled flowers.

Assemble your layout by adding your matted photo. Then adhere your flowers clusters and finish off by layering the foiled poppy flowers on top. Add pearls, diamante and stamped details to your layout.
Add some ephemera elements as well.

Double up on Mixed Media Layout.

I love dabbling in mixed media elements on my layouts. You may think of going overboard but for me, the wisdom lies in knowing when to stop, when you can take something away instead of adding that one thing,
then you know you have created something special that focuses on the photo and the story

This range is perfect for those special memories where you may only have a single photo that you can use enlarged to tell your story.

Inked Mixed Media Heart.

Everybody loves the look of Mixed Media projects. The trouble is that not many people know how to approach it, where to start or what to use.
And for others, it is what to do with the projects once you have created them. Let’s face it, we all only have so much space where we can display stuff.JN_NewYear_heart

In this series of inked and Mixed Media projects, I am showing you how easy it is to create these amazing projects without getting impatient or despondent, but also some ideas on displays and what to do with these creations.

This heart has been around for years and has also had many different jackets. Yes! That’s right I recycle my Mixed Media projects. I change them up every couple of years and even move them around the house to a different location, or even give them away. Simply by changing them up – they look totally different.
Hop on over to The Wholesaler blog to see how I created this heart using the range of Little Birdie Mixed Media Products.

Make your own Gift wrapping paper for Christmas.

It’s weekend and we have some awesome inspiration for you for the festive season.
There’s nothing better than receiving a beautiful gift. But wrap it in some special paper and you have a winner.
Today we show you how easy it is to make your own gift wrapping paper using POP Paint.
The best part is that each person receiving a gift from you wrapped in your own paper, is that you essentially give a part of yourself too.
the time you lovingly spent creating each unique piece of paper, and then wrapping a thoughtful gift in it – it truly is special.giftwrap1

As the base for my wrapping paper I used plain brown kraft paper – available in huge rolls and the perfect neutral backdrop.
detail1step 1 – select the colour of PoP Paint you want to use. Signal and Sprout is perfect for the festive season.
step1

step 2 – Use a soft medium sized flat paintbrush and paint random streaks onto the paper alternating the colours.
Leave the paint t dry, while working on other sheets. This way you can mass produce a few sheets at a time.
step2step 3 – Once the paint is dry, use a black marker to draw onto the background – a great way to get the kids involved. They can make their own personal wrapping paper for family and friends with a little help from an adult. Or use your stamps and stamp with black ink onto the background randomly overlapping the paint streaks like I did.
step3
Now you are ready to wrap all those special gifts for your loved ones. Add a simple bit of twine or ribbon and a few extra bits of decorations and you will have some special gifts to place under the tree this year.
giftwrap3The fun doesn’t stop there – you can make your own special gift tags to match your paper using the same paint colours.
So what are you waiting for – get creative and make your own recyclable paper this year.
