Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box

Hello, Friends!  Today marks the beginning of a new challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog. I’ve created this Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box to go along with the  Christmas Gifts theme that our hostess, Maggi, has chosen for the challenge.  We’ll take a look at it in a minute, but first let’s see what she has to say about the challenge guidelines.

Challenge Theme: Tis the Season for Gift Giving!
It’s that time of the year where we’re all thinking about the perfect gift for our friends and families!  For this challenge, create a vintage or shabby chic gift for a special someone in your life.  Your gift could be a simple as a handmade card or tag, or an elaborate piece of home decor.  Maybe you like to place your gifts in handmade boxes?  Your imagination is the only limit on this challenge!

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box: The Box

I happen to have a love for pretty boxes.  So much so that my family saves interesting boxes for me to alter.  I have a box full of them in the Closet of Shame.  Since so many of us give gift cards for Christmas, I thought it would be fun to create a really beautiful box that could house a gift card.  That was my original intent.  But when I began digging through the COS, I found a Tim Holtz 6″ x 9″ x 1″ Configurations Box that I’d forgotten all about.  All the little boxes inside were missing (what on earth did I do with those???)  but the box itself was perfect for my new and improved plan.

Paint the box with Candied Apple Distress Paint.  Then add a layer of Distress Crazing Medium.  When that has dried, rub on some Black Soot Distress Stain, wiping off with a paper towel after about 10 seconds.  Then tap/brush an Embossing Dabber along the edges and sides of the box.  Sprinkle on Seth Apter Ancient Amber Baked Texture to add that holiday touch of gold.

I adhered a vintage silver plate spoon to the side of the box in lieu of a handle.

And I added more stenciling/inking to the spine.

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box: The Paper

Stamperia Winter Botanic is the most gorgeous paper!  After distressing/inking the edges, I matted it on some kraft cardstock which I also distressed and inked.  Then I stitched around the edges of the paper on my machine.  To add some texture and layering to the paper, I added some Opaque Crackle Texture Paste through a Stamperia Stencil.  When the paste was dry, I lightly sponged on some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink, spritzed lightly with water and heat dried.

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box: Framed

Can you spot something you rarely see in one of my projects?  The answer is that I used just ONE layer of designer paper.  To draw the eye to the image of that beautiful winter bird, I decided to top it with a Tim Holtz Vignette Topper Frame.  Here’s how I altered it:

  • First, place the frame in a shallow box.  I like to use the 12″ x 12″ shipping boxes that paper gets shipped in.  Placing the frame in a box is not a requirement, but it sure does make cleanup easy!
  • Next, spray the frame thoroughly with Ground Espresso Distress Stain Spray.
  • Then, while the stain is still wet, spray randomly with Tim Holtz Tarnished Brass Mica Spray.
  • After the frame is dry (I used my heat gun) scrape some Opaque Crackle Texture Paste randomly around the frame.
  • Then apply Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive on a piece of sponge.  Squeeze the sponge gently to evenly distribute the adhesive.  Then tap the sponge randomly all over the surface of the frame.
  • Next, place the frame over a funnel tray or a large piece of paper and sprinkle liberally with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.  This gives the frame a frosty appearance and adds subtle sparkle to the “snow”.
Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box: The Finishing Touches

Wrap the left hand side of the paper panel with burlap string.  Tie a knot and add some rusty jingle bells in the upper left corner.  Arrange Little Birdie Flowers (Buttermilk Rosalind Roses and Danica Cherry) along the left hand side of the box.  Tear out the “Happy Holidays” sentiment from the paper collection, distress, back with dimensionals and add above the frame.

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 07

  • Alter a Graphic 45 Ornate Door Plate and Knob by painting with black gesso.  While the paint is damp, spritz it liberally with the Tim Holtz Mica Spray again.  Then heat dry.
  • Add mustard seeds and green peppercorns in the corners of the frame.
Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box: A Peek Inside

The interior of the box holds a little Christmas card and photo folio.

This 5″ x 7″ card has a base layer of Stamperia Rice Paper.  Apply this with Distress Vintage Collage Medium for a beautiful vintage finish.   Stitch on some scraps of designer paper and the beautiful deer image. Then add more stenciling and inking for texture.

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 10

Dry brush Picket Fence Distress Paint on a wood slice (my son cut these for me in his shop but you can use the Tim Holtz brand). Add some Opaque Crackle Texture Paste randomly around the edges, sprinkle with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter and set aside to dry.  Color a Tim Holtz Deer with Alcohol Inks.  I wanted to add a white bottle brush tree to the wood slice, but it prevented the box from closing.  So I colored this pretty silvertone Christmas tree charm with Pesto Alcohol Ink instead.  All these elements were joined by some Spanish Moss and some rusty jingle bells.

Here’s a peek at the inside.  That’s a handmade crocheted/starched snowflake ornament in the pocket.

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box: The Folio

I added more rice paper images to the cover of this 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ magnetic folio.

Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Box by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 14

There are 6 panels in all, each decorated with papers from the Winter Botanic and Alchemy Collections.  I even managed to fit in another pocket.

And here’s a look at the box with all the goodies removed.  This paper is drool worthy!  As always, this Stamperia Winter Botanic Box Set is available for purchase in my ETSY shop.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Project Share and Mini Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Happy Saturday!  I’m here to introduce you to the Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Collection.  What a treat it was to work with these gorgeous patterns, images and sentiments!  I got so carried away with my creative time that I ended up making a card folio and two styles of mixed media tags…and a little secret surprise that I’ll share later on this month.  These projects are being featured as  the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog Saturday Showcase today.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess: Shine Card Folio

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Shine Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

I began my crafty adventure by designing and creating this 7″ x 5″ waterfall card folio.  Festooned with blossoming roses, custom dyed seam binding ribbon, textiles, distressed/painted edges and metal charms, it is loaded with shabby chic charm.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Shine Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

The interior is a simple folio with a waterfall feature on the left and a pocket/insert on the right.  The waterfall is held shut with a little magnetic belly band closure.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Shine Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 03

Beneath the waterfall, I’ve created a little flap/pocket page with a lovely photo insert.  You all know how much I like to maximize the use of space in anything I create.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Shine Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

The pocket/folio page also uses a magnetic closure.  I reached way back into my high school days, and created a decorative tassel for the chipboard element on the flap.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Shine Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 05

The folio features a journaling page with an insert.  I’ve used the back side of a 4″ x 6″ ephemera card here.  You’ll be able to see all the details in the video tour below.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess: Mixed Media Tags

I had quite a tidy pile of scraps on my work table after making the folio, so I decided to make a couple of mixed media art tags.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Mixed Media Tag #1 by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

The first tag measures 4″ x 9″ and uses a G45 Large Kraft Tag as its base.  First I embossed the tag with Tim’s 3-D Botanical Texture Fade.  Then I took it to the mixed media day spa for a beauty treatment with gesso, crazing medium, Distress Oxide Inks, Distress Stain and Seth Apter Ancient Amber Baked Texture.   We’ll take a closer look in the video, and I’ll also share process photos for creating the mixed media background.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Mixed Media Tag #2 by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

For the 2nd tag, I scored the shaped edge to form a pocket.  To decorate the top edge, I die cut one of Tim’s Pediments (Sizzix Bigz Die) and covered it with paper scraps.  I love the way this tag turned out!

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess YouTube Video

In this short, 10 minute video, we’ll take a walk through of the card folio where I’ll share some tips and creative ideas.  Then I’ll show you the details of the mixed media tags and talk about creating them.  The video will conclude with still shots and text showing you how I went about creating the mixed media background.  I hope you enjoy!

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post, too.

 

I hope I’ve shared some tips, techniques and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial for Frilly and Funkie Harvest of Gratitude

Hello, Friends!  I once read that thankful people are the happiest people and I believe that to be true.  So every year as the US Thanksgiving holiday draws near, I like to create a new gratitude journal.  This year I have a Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial to share with you.  Perhaps my tradition will catch on with you.  I’m also the hostess for this 2 week challenge on the Frilly and Funkie Blog, so before I share the gratitude journal with you, I’ll share the challenge guidelines:

Challenge Theme: A Harvest of Gratitude
There is always something to be thankful for.  In this gratitude themed challenge we are asking you to create a vintage or shabby chic project that portrays something that fills your heart with thanksgiving. Use harvest colors and be sure to tell us how your project reflects your thankful heart.
French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial: The Inspiration

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

The older I get, the more thankful I am for the gift of memory.  Often while I am in the process of creating, my mind wanders back through time.  I remember people, places, and events that have enriched my life.

This 5 1/2″ x 4″ journal reminds me of an old, old book of Bible stories that my dad used to read to me when I was just a very little girl.  The book was on my grandmother’s shelves and had an embossed cover.  The photos were all black and white prints of wood engravings on thick papers with unevenly cut edges.  I would curl up in my father’s lap (I couldn’t have been more than about 4 years old) and he would read to me in his deep, smooth voice as I snugged in as close to him as humanly possible.

Those books are now in my possession. They are one of my great treasures for they remind me of the comfort, warmth, joy  and safety of those moments in my father’s lap so many years ago.  I wanted to capture that memory and the thankfulness I feel for it in this little volume.

French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial: The Album Base

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

The base of this gratitude journal is a 13″ x 4″ strip of heavy kraft cardstock.  I buy this in bulk at envelopes.com.  But you could substitute Dina Wakely’s Media Kraft Cardstock from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and achieve the same results.  The album base is my own design. Page tabs and cover are made from the same strip of kraft card.   You’ll learn how to do this in the video tutorial below.

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 03

Old books fill my heart with joy.  I wanted to capture the worn patina and elegance of a truly ancient tome.  I cut two pieces of the same heavy kraft card to measure 4 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ to layer over the front and back covers.  A third piece (4 1/2″ x 4″) was scored at 1 1/2″ and 3″ to serve as a cover for the spine.

Add texture by placing those pieces inside the amazing Sizzix/Tim Holtz 3-D Botanical Texture Fade Folder.  I am so happy that I purchased this folder, and I can’t wait for more to be released.  Then perform a bit of paper alchemy with Seth Apter Baked Textures, Emerald Creek Embossing Powders, Distress Paints and Distress Mediums.  You’ll see all of this in the video as well.

French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial:  A Peek Inside

Before you add the pages to your gratitude journal, distress and ink the edges.  To make quick work of this, use Ground Espresso Distress Stain.

I’ll add measurements below the post for your convenience.

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

The front cover is a pocket with a little insert folio.  Page one is a pull out/side pocket page.

These tip in pages have some fun surprises built in.

Here’s a peek inside the right hand tip in page.

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 07

TIP:  To add extra layers to your pages without adding extra bulk, line the edges with Tim Holtz Design Tape (washi tape.)  I also used this to cover the kraft spines, and I love the wonderful finished look and vintage feel this creates within the album.  It’s a small detail, but it makes a bit impact.

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 08

Both page units follow the same design “recipe”: pull out page with pocket,  double tip in page, side pocket, flap/insert page.

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 09

The insert pages look like a flap page, but actually pull out from between the kraft pages.

Graphic 45 French Country Gratitude Journal Tutorial by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 10

Throughout the album, I’ve added sentiments from Tim Holtz quotes stickers.  These little folios, tags and inserts provide space for small photos and journaling spots.

This is a rather long video, but it takes a while to build an album from start to finish.  I’ve edited to make it as concise as possible.  Even if you don’t want to build an entire album, you will find lots of techniques and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  I hope you enjoy!

Now it’s YOUR turn: Harvest of Gratitude Challenge at Frilly and Funkie

Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album

G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album for Frilly Funkie Haunted Halloween Challenge

Hello, Friends!  Are you ready to get your Halloween on?  This G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album is filled with spook-tacular details.  Created for the Haunted Halloween Challenge at The Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog, I’ve loaded this album up with loads of texture, interactive elements and mixed media techniques.  We’ll take a look in a moment, but first, let’s see what Jenny, our gracious and talented hostess this go round, has to say about this frightfully fun challenge:

Challenge Theme: Haunted Halloween
It’s time to get your freak on and go all out for Halloween. We want to see your ghouls and ghosts and things that go bump in the night. It’s going to be spooktacular!!!
G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album: Elementary, My Dear Watson!

G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

Master Detective is one of my all time favorite Halloween Collections.  I love the color palette, the quirky characters and the incredible patterns.  When I was growing up, “Clue” (the board game) filled many a leisure hour, so working with it brings back loads of happy memories.  This “from scratch” mini album is made in the same way as the Communique album that I shared with you HERE.  In fact, the tutorial video shows me using this collection.  So I thought I would come back and share the finished album with you.

G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

For this album, I decided to go in a faux rust direction.  There are loads of ways to create faux rust, all of them wonderful and fun to work with.  This time, I decided to use Tim’s Mechanical 3-D Texture Fade with Seth Apter’s Chunky Rust Baked texture.

G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 03

After adding embossing ink to the album cover with an embossing dabber, I covered it with Chunky Rust and heat embossed.  I tell you: watching that chunky rust baked texture do its thing when exposed to heat is a magical moment!  Next, I pulled out my Prima Rust Pastes and a sponge to dab on even more texture and rusty goodness.  No need to go into all of the details here, as I share them with you in the video tour at the bottom of this post.

G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album: The Pocket Watch

G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

To create the focal image, I used Tim’s Pocket Watch Frame.  It’s perfect for this Sherlock Holmes themed mini album.  Here’s how I did it:

  • First, die cut 2 pocket watch frames from matboard.
  • Then paint both the frames and the back with black gesso.
  • Next, while the gesso is still wet, cover one  frame with Seth Apter Ancient Amber Baked Texture.  Heat Emboss.
  • Now use an embossing dabber randomly around the perimeter and stem of the pocket watch frame.
  • Then sprinkle on Patina Oxide Baked Texture to add an aged brass patina to the pocket watch frame.
  • Use the other frame as a template and trace around the focal image.  Trim out and adhere to the back of the embossed frame.
  • Now, use the Embossing Dabber inside the frame, on the image.  Be liberal!  You want a nice thick layer of Embossing ink.  If you don’t have a dabber, you can use an embossing ink pad or an embossing pen.
  • Then fill the frame with a layer of Ultra Thick Embossing Powder (UTEE).  Heat emboss from the BOTTOM so that the UTEE does not blow all over your craft space.  Repeat this step 2 or 3 times until the watch face has a glassy appearance.
  • Now, adhere the circular back behind the frame.
  • Next, use adhesive and foam tabs to add the 2nd frame behind the first one.  This gives the pocket watch lots of dimension.
  • Dab on some Prima Rust Paste.  Add some Prills.  Done!
G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album: The Spine

G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 05

This album measures 7 1/2″ x 6″ with a 3″ spine.  The spine is dressed up with black satin ribbon, one of Tim’s Crypt Cameos, a little black crochet doily that I found in my stash, a Steampunk Key, and Halloween Tokens.

G45 Master Detective Faux Rust Mini Album: A Peek Inside
