Discover Dream Explore for Blue Fern Studios

Hi. Time for part two of my December Blue Fern Studios share :-)
I used the Juliannas Dream paper from the magical Ombre Dreams collection
Such a beautiful and feminine collection, and so versatile too! I always love the combination of yellow with purple. I can't say why I Love it so, except I find it sooo,sooo pretty!

And even here I have close ups to share:

I painted most of my chipboard pieces purple and gave them a lick of gesso on top to make them a bit more shabby.The Chained Bits look great here down the side of my photo. They are a good background for layering any kind of embellishment.

The Timeless Floral corner adds so much to a page. It's so great because you can turn it
any way you want so it will work in any corner The flowers are a combination of older/newer Prima Marketing and flowers from my stash.

I wanted a title that was not too overpowering so I went with a single chipboard word that I painted and clear embossed. The letter stickers by Prima were very glittery so I rubbed them with gesso to reduce the shiny aspect a little. I added some punched and die cut greenery as well made with the Tim Holtz  Laurel punch and the Sizzix Garden Greenery die.

And to round things off I have a couple of simple Christmas cards that I'd like to share with you.

The first one I made with one of the cards from the Christmas card sheet and added the bottom strip from a sheet down the sides. I used the Petal embossingpowder again.
The Framed Winter words are perfect for a card front.

On my second card you can see that even other non-christmassy collections can be used for seasonal cards. My background here is from the Montage collection, but the top sentiment is from the
Vintage Christmas collection of course. I added some bits from the Chain link 
chipboard panel that I painted a dark red. I used a little of the Cotton Candy Imagine Ink
on the background and  a stencil on top.

That was all from me! 
Again; Thank you so much to Leslie and Valerie for having me on the team for the last year. 
It's been a pleasure!!
In Sweden we celebrated yesterday, but I wish my foreign friends a wonderful peaceful 
Christmas Day whether you celebrate or not.
Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth!

Time to say good bye.

Hi there friends.
Today is my last post on the Blue Fern Studios blog, It's been fun but of course everything has an end. I have enjoyed every minute of working with their gorgeous products. You will definitely see more of Blue Fern Studios around here in the fiture as well.

Today I want to share my first page using one of the pretty new papers from the  Vintage Christmas collection.

I also have some close ups of the details:

I used the Petal embossing enamel to treat my chipboards. That gorgeous round piece is called Twilight Garden Frame. I gave the Shabby snowflake (part of a set) the same treatment. 

I love the look of those tiny half pearls that I added to it!

On my background I used the Winter Mint and Cotton Candy Imagine Ink mists. I also used gesso and microbeads as well as a few paints.

For a title I used one of the designs on the Christmas cards sheet together with the word Christmas from one of the bottom strips.

I love the look of the strict stripes with the soft colourful blooms. 
These adorable pink larger blooms are the from the Bel Canto colletion by Prima Marketing.
They are surely one of my all time favourites!!

Thanks for dropping by! I'll have a couple of free days around Christmas so hopefully I will be back again with not too much of a delay this time :-) 
But just in case I don't see you again before X-mas I wish for you:
<3 <3 <3
