Graphic 45 Imagine Steampunk Tag Folio Tutorial for Letter Perfect Challenge at Frilly & Funkie

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Frilly and Funkie Letter Perfect Challenge!  I’ve created a really fun Graphic 45 Imagine Steampunk Tag Folio to share with you today.  There’s even a little tutorial and a video tour thrown in for your viewing pleasure.  We’ll take a look at everything in just a second, but first, let’s see what Sara Emily, our lovely challenge hostess, has to say about this challenge.

Challenge Theme: Letter Perfect
According to Merriam Webster, ‘letter perfect’ is defined as “correct to the smallest detail”. We’re not asking you to be immaculate or flawless; we just want to see letters or words on your vintage or shabby chic project. They don’t have to be the focus, but be sure we can see them!

It makes sense to start this post with the video tour of this Tag Folio before we look at the details.  So here you go…it’s  just a short, 11 minute video tour loaded with tips and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  Enjoy!

Graphic 45 Imagine Steampunk Tag Folio:  The base-ics

Graphic 45 Imagine  Steampunk Tag Folio by Kathy Clement for the Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

This is an 8″ x 10″ folio with a lightweight chipboard base.  Because I knew that I would be adding a tag box to the front, the folio itself had to have some heft to it so it wouldn’t tip over. I simply scored the sheet of chipboard in half, creased along the fold and voila!  Instant folio base!

You probably notice that this folio is not thick.  That’s because most of the components are found in this dimensional tag box on the cover.  (There’s fun inside, too….trust me!)  Today’s tutorial will show you how to construct the tag box using a Graphic 45 Large Ivory Tag as the base.   The tag box, filled with fun tags is a great project all on its own.  But it’s even more fun when added to the cover of a folio, dontcha think?

Graphic 45 Imagine Steampunk Tag Folio: Details and Flowers

Graphic 45 Imagine Steampunk Tag Folio by Kathy Clement for the Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 03

My imagination ran away with me as I created this romantic Steampunk folio.  I just kept thinking of more things I could add.  Here you see the flowers I made using the G45 Large Tag and Flowers Dies.  These are soooo much fun to make.  Here are a few helpful flower making tips:

  • First,  die cut your flowers from patterned paper.  This gives each flower instant depth and dimension.  I used 8″ x 8″ patterns from the “B” side of the papers for this purpose.
  • Secondly, lightly mist your die cut petals with water before shaping.  I’m talking a very light misting…not Niagara Falls!  This does two things: first, it softens the paper making it easier to shape the petals.  Secondly, it releases the starch from the paper so that when your flowers dry, they will hold that shape.
  • Thirdly: Use a foam mat and ball stylus to shape the petals.  I roll my stylus from the tip of the petals toward the center of the flower to create a realistic shape.  Then I place the tip of my stylus in the center of each flower and “stir” it to cup the flowers.  You can cup them a little, or a lot…it’s up to you.
  • Fourth: if you want to add stamens, punch a hold in the center of each petal layer using and awl.  A standard craft pick does not make a big enough hole.
  • Finally: to add depth and dimension, sponge the petal edges with Distress Ink.  I used Vintage Photo on these flowers, but most any dye or chalk ink will work.  Then to add sparkle, spritz with mica spray or Glimmer Mist.
Graphic 45 Imagine Steampunk Tag Folio: Ribbon and Tags

Graphic 45 Imagine Steampunk Tag Folio by Kathy Clement for the Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

The pinks in this collection can be a little hard to color match.  But no worries! You can custom dye your own ribbon with Distress Ink and Seam Binding Ribbon.  Here’s how:

  • First, cut a nice long piece of white or ivory seam binding ribbon…at least a yard.  But more is better, so why not do 2 or 3?  You can use the extra on your next project!
  • Now add color.  I like to use Distress Ink Refills for really vibrant color.  Simply place a drop or two on your craft mat or non-porous surface and then spritz with water.  It’s best to add one layer of color at a time, drying in between so you don’t end up with mud.  For this ribbon, I used Tattered Rose, Fossilized Amber and Tumbled Glass.
  • Dry the ribbon gently with a heat tool, scrunching and crumpling it as you dry it.
  • To add some shadow and contrast, i tapped my Worn Lipstick Distress ink pad very lightly in a random kind of way over the top of my dried ribbon.  I love the way it turned out!

The inside is fairly simple.  It was fun and easy to cover the Staples Ivory Tags thanks to the die.  Then I just scored a line on the bottom to make a flap and added them to the folio.

 

How to Turn a Graphic 45 Large Ivory Tag into a Tag Box

Here’s the promised tutorial.

To create the top border, I backed a border strip with waste chipboard.  Then I adhered Venise Lace along the bottom edge.

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Folio

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Folio for Surf’s Up Challenge at Frilly and Funkie

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for a brand new challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  I have the honor of hosting the challenge this go round, and the theme is “Surf’s Up!” We’ll look at the delectable Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Folio I prepared in just a second, but first, let’s get the details on this fun challenge.

Challenge Theme
Who’s ready for a little sand, a little sun, and a little surf? Let’s take this challenge for a little stroll beside the shore! Create a vintage or shabby chic project with a beachy theme.  Use ocean colors  and beach images to add a seaside feel to your project.
Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Folio: Stamperia Sea Land Collection

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Sea Land by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 01

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love the beach!  It’s where I go to think, to relax, to refresh and regain my perspective on life.  Sitting in the sand, the beach breeze messing up my hair, warm sand between my toes, little sea birds darting along the shore…gazing at the horizon…. OK, let’s pack up and go right now!  Who’s with me?

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Sea Land by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 02

This 5.25″ x 7.25″ card folio is made with Stamperia’s Sea Land paper pack.  When I began creating for this challenge, I knew I wanted to incorporate lots of layers and texture.  Mixed media has been calling to me lately, and this challenge seemed like a good opportunity to answer the call.

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Folio: Bringing the Texture!

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Sea Land by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 04

For starters, I pulled out my Tim Holtz Woodgrain Texture Fade.  Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide Ink seemed like a great color to complement these pretty beach papers.  So I rubbed the ink pad directly onto the surface of my texture fade, misted my paper with a little water and ran it through my machine.  It really brought this woodgrain pattern to life!

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Sea Land by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 05

Next, I used my Distress Tool to rough up all the edges.  Then I added two rows of machine stitching around the perimeter.  The final step for this woodgrain layer was a touch of Frayed Burlap Distress Ink along the edges.

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Folio: Bringing the Dimension!

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Sea Land by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 06

Torn paper layers add to the distressed feel of this mixed media card.  I tore 2 strips to create the shoreline and the horizon line on my card.  Each layer is backed with waste chipboard to add height and dimension.

TIP: For controlled paper tearing, “paint” a line with a water brush then wait a minute.  The water will soften the paper fibers and you’ll be able to tear the precise area that you want to add to your composition.

Once I had my shoreline and horizon line in place, I randomly brushed the water with Transparent Gloss Texture Paste to add texture.  For that sun glinting off the water look, i dusted the Texture Paste with Vintage Distress Dust.

Next,  I fussy cut the hot air balloons and sponged the edges with more Frayed Burlap.  Next, I coated them with Vintage Distress Collage Medium.  Once that was dry, I added a layer of Transparent Gloss Texture Paste and just a very light dusting of Vintage Distress Glitter Dust.

When the hot air balloons were dry, I placed them face down on my foam mat and rounded out the edges with my largest ball stylus.  Then I arranged and adhered them to the upper third of the card.  I added a bunch of Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs for extra layers without adding extra bulk.

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card: The Little Details

Sea Dreams Mixed Media Card Sea Land by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 03

To create this shoreline collage, I wove some blades of sea grass that I’d salvaged after a storm into a sort of wreath.  That created the base for the sand dollar (also scavenged from along the shoreline) some little sea plants, tiny shells, a real starfish and a brass seahorse charm.  I also coiled up some very thin strips of paper and added them to the base of the wreath because I liked the texture they added.  The lovely sentiment is from the paper collection, too.

The tiny vial of sand is resting on a bit of driftwood, surrounded by more tiny shells.  Prills add extra texture and mimic a rocky coastline…at least in my mind!

Little Birdie Flowers were tapped with Frayed Burlap and dry brushed with Antique Linen Distress Paint.  Then I dry brushed Antique Linen Paint all along the card edges.  I diluted what was left on my craft mat, then spattered it all over the card.

This cut apart image from the collection serves as a flap…

I pulled one of my favorite old beach stamps from my stash and hid it behind the flap.  Then I wrote the sentiment in with a sharpie pen.

And of course, there’s a pocket with a gift card wallet!

And this time I made a quick little bookmark as an add in.

The gift card wallet is decorated with pretty paper scraps, a tiny chocolate and a tag.

This was such a fun, relaxing project.  Almost as good as a walk along the shore!

Surf’s Up!  Now it’s YOUR Turn!

I hope you’re feeling inspired to join in the fun on this Surf’s Up Challenge.  Just create a shabby chic or vintage project of your choice that uses beach colors and images.  Then link up on the Frilly and Funkie Blog before 11:59PM EDT on Tuesday, May 22nd.

Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card

Frilly and Funkie Challenge: Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for a brand new challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  This Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card is loaded with texture, dimension and some really fun features.  I’ll share it with you in just a second, but first, let’s find out Sara, our hostess for the challenge, has to say about the theme:

Neutral Point of View
We’re seeing a lot of pastel and brighter colors this time of year. For this challenge we’re inviting you to step away from all that color and play with your neutral art supplies. You can add a few pops or hints of color, but be sure we see mainly neutrals on your vintage or shabby chic design. (Think black, white, gray, brown, beige, cream, ivory; even gold and silver.)
Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card: Naturally Neutral

Ooooh!  Look at all this delicious texture!  To help me embrace the challenge to use neutral tones, I turned to a lovely pad of paper created by a company I discovered (and fell in love with) while at CHA in January.  My friends, meet “Alchemy” by Stamperia, a company based in Italy.  These lovely papers have a definite “Old World” feel, and I sure do love to play with them

Honeybee Mixed Media All Occasion Shaker Card: Bringing the Mixed Media to the Mix

Instead of matting all my paper layers, as I usually do, this time I distressed all the edges, then dry brushed them with Antique Linen Distress Paint.  While I was dry brushing, I went ahead and dabbed paint onto the flowers and other paper layers, too.  I love the way this aged the papers and gave the whole piece a very worn, antique feel.

Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card Alchemy by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 03Machine stitching, canvas ribbon and burlap string add wonderful texture.  And for just a tiny pop of color, I turned the honeybee card focal into a shaker element.  Those gold sequins add wonderful shimmer and shine to the neutral color palette.  I also scattered Czech seed beads around the card.  To me, they look like pollen.

Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card Alchemy by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 04

These Little Birdie Flowers take on a whole new look once they are brushed with paint.  I added a little bee charm to the petals, along with burlap string and a random leaf I found on my desk.

Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card Alchemy by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 05

The Tim Holtz Weathered Clock Die frames the focal.  I treated it randomly with Seth Apter’s Ancient Amber Baked Texture Embossing Powder to add hints of gold to the finish.  The weathered clock is topped with some steampunk charms and a little resin crown, just above the flower cluster.

Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card: Sweet as Honey inside!

Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card Alchemy by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 07

I simply cannot get over the Old World charm and beauty of this paper collection.  Decorating the inside of this card was every bit as much fun as creating the outside.  I created a spot on the top half of the card where a personal greeting can be written in.  By leaving this blank, I can customize the greeting for any occasion I need.

Mixed Media Honeybee All Occasion Shaker Card Alchemy by Kathy Clement Product by Stamperia Photo 08

To fill the pocket on the bottom half of the card, I matted one of the pre-made bookmarks from the Alchemy Collection on cream and kraft cardstock.  Then I created a little tea bag wallet from scraps on my table.  And you cannot present a tea bag wallet without a honey stick.  It just wouldn’t be kosher.

This card came together so quickly…in just a couple of hours.  I had such fun cutting into these gorgeous papers and watching the design take shape.  It’s always an adventure, my friends!

A Neutral Point of View: Now it’s YOUR Turn!

You’re invited to participate in this “Neutral Point of View” Challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  Simply create your own vintage or shabby chic project that relies primarily on using neutral art supplies.  .  Then link your project on the Frilly and Funkie blog before 11:59PM DST on Tuesday, May 8th.  You can find all the information on that  HERE.

The Frilly and Funkie team will choose four favorite projects from your entries. Our favorite artist  will be invited to join us as a Guest Designer  at Frilly and Funkie. The next three winners will receive Top 3 badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who links up and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Dare to Resist: Discover Dragonfly Junk Journal

Frilly and Funkie Dare to Resist Challenge: Discover Dragonfly Junk Journal

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for another challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie blog.  Autumn is our lovely hostess this go round, and she has issued a dare: Dare to Resist!  With this challenge in mind, I’ve created a mini Discover Dragonfly Junk Journal for you today.  We’ll take a look at it in just a moment, but first, let’s see what Autumn has to say;

Challenge Theme: Dare to Resist
Happy Valentine’s Day dear readers!  For the next two weeks, as we break away from our Valentine creations, we’d love to see you incorporate a favorite resist technique in your vintage or shabby chic project.  There are so many options, perhaps you will try something new.  Whether it be gesso resist, Vaseline resist, alcohol resist, embossing resist, or watercolor resist, we dare you to resist!
Discover Dragonfly Junk Journal with an easy resist technique

Dragonfly Discover Junk Journal Wallflower by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Product by Tim Holtz Photo 1

I’m really not much of a mixed media girl.  Paper is my jam.  But this challenge reminded me that I can stamp, and I do like to get inky, and playing with techniques can be fun.  Messy fun, but fun all the same.  This started as a 4.75″ x 6.25″ gatefold card base .

So, this is the gatefold card that thought it should be a junk journal.  We (the card and I) had quite a protracted argument about what it was going to be.  But as you can see, the junk journal won the fight.  Does that ever happen to you?  You set out to make one thing, and you end up making something entirely different?

Discover Dragonfly Junk Journal: I Dared to Resist!

Dragonfly Discover Junk Journal Wallflower by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Product by Tim Holtz Photo 2

Here are the basic steps of my resist technique.  It’s a basic emboss/resist with a Tim Holtz twist. I saw Tim demo this technique at CHA and instantly knew that I wanted to give it a try at home.

  • First, find a piece of Alcohol Ink Cardstock.  And yes, it must be Alcohol Ink CS, or the twist won’t work!
  • Next, place the Alcohol Ink CS on the Stamp Platform, securing it with the magnets.
  • Now, position the dragonfly image from TH Classics #1 where you want it to be on the cardstock panel.
  • Then close the lid of the Stamp Platform and make sure the placement is correct.
  • Now, ink the stamp with Jet Black Archival Ink and stamp away!  Repeat until the image looks as dark as you want it to  be.
  • Now sprinkle the image with Ranger Clear Superfine Embossing Powder.  After you’ve removed the excess, heat emboss.
  • Next, smoosh some pretty colors of Distress Oxide Ink onto your non-stick craft mat.  It must be DOX, or again, the twist won’t work.  I used Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Warm Honey, Twisted Citron, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, and Dusty Concord.
  • Now, mist the ink with a Distress Sprayer until beads of water form.
  • Tap (don’t drag or swish!) the stamped image in the inky puddles, drying between layers.
The Twist

Dragonfly Discover Junk Journal Wallflower by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Product by Tim Holtz Photo 3

Now here’s the best part of this technique, and it’s one I learned watching Tim.  Get out your Distress Micro Glaze and gently twist a mini ink blending tool over the medium.  Then use the blending tool to gently buff up the surface of the inky panel and watch the magic happen.  The milky, oxidized appearance of the inks will disappear and all the gorgeous layers of color beneath will pop through.  It’s like crafting magic!

Resist again!

Dragonfly Discover Junk Journal Wallflower by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Product by Tim Holtz Photo 4

The other resist techinque I used was on this quote band.  I love to fill in the letters of the quote, but sometimes have a hard time with the process.  I started wondering what would happen if I used the Distress Micro Glaze on the word band first.  So I just lightly sponged it over the surface.  Then I came back with Picked Raspberry Distress Paint and dabbed it over the top.  The metal resisted the paint, but…it sunk right into the letters, which was what I was hoping would happen.

Details, details, details

NDragonfly Discover Junk Journal Wallflower by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Product by Tim Holtz Photo 5

Next I went to work making my flowers.  First I die cut Tammy Tutterow’s Pinked Posies, Frayed Posies and Pinwheel Posies from the Wallflower paper collection.  Then I used sponge daubers to add DOX to each petal layer.  Next, I spritz, shaped and stacked.  Finally, I punched holes in the center of each flower and added stamens.  To add a little vintage shimmer, I sprayed each flower lightly with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.

I also experimented with making my own Prills (those itty bitty bead looking critters) with mustard seeds and alcohol ink.  It worked like a charm.

To finish the cover, I added some TH remnant rubs and a hinge clip.

Here’s where I really began to have fun.  I gathered up a whole pile of TH ephemera, my paper dolls, remnant rubs, stickers and had a ball.  I dug through my stash and found a whole pile of fabulous Wendy Vecchi sentiments that were perfect for the theme of my journal.  And, I just added DOX to brighten up everything.

Once I embraced the idea of turning this card into a junk journal, everything just fell into place.  I added flap pages and folded pages and flip pages.  This is the very best kind of crafty adventure for me.  I think these pictures will tell the story all on their own.  Enjoy!

The things I like best about this Discover Dragonfly Junk Journal are the worn/distressed pages and the small size.  It’s only about 1/4″ thick, so easy to toss into a suitcase and use on a trip.  Plus, I had a blast making it.  What do you like best about it?
