Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio with Stamperia Lilac and Flower Alphabet

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a sweet Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio to share with you.  The latest challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog is being hosted by my incredibly talented friend, Sara Emily.  Her challenge theme is “Pass the Tissues,Please”  and requires you to use tissue paper or rice paper in your project.  We’ll take a look at my journal in a moment, but first. let’s see what Sara has to say about this interesting challenge.

Challenge Theme: Pass the Tissues, Please!
Since we are still in ‘cold season’, I always make sure I’m stocked up on tissues in my home, in my purse and in the car. For this theme, I would like to see how you incorporate tissue paper into your vintage or shabby chic project. You can use regular tissues, tissue wrapping paper, sewing patterns or even collage paper, rice papers or tissue wrap designed especially for crafting.

Sound like fun?  I thought so!  Let’s dive in!

Finnabair Art Tissue, Stamperia Lilac, Flower Alphabet Soup

Stamperia Lilac Flower Alphabet Tissue Wrapped Journal Tim Holtz Lace Baseboard Frame Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

For me, every project idea starts with designer paper.  I flipped through my stash of gorgeous Stamperia papers and could not choose between Lilac and Flower Alphabet.  So I used them both in the creation of this 5″ x 7″ wrap style folio.   The base is made by scoring a 7″ x 18″ piece of 18 pt. Grocery Bag Cardstock into three 5″ panels with a quarter inch spine between.  I chose to work with this because of its strength and ability to stand up to mixed media treatments.

NOTE: If I had it to do over again, I would  have scored 3/4″ spines to allow the folio to close with ease.  This one is as snug as your grandpa’s belt after Thanksgiving dinner.

TIP: You can create your own oversized cardstock by joining two panels of Dina Wakely Media Kraft Cardstock with Scor-Tape.

My tissue paper choice is this Finnabair Art Alchemy Musica paper from Prima.  The spring greens and lilac shades are a perfect color match for the two Stamperia collections.

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio: The Process

Stamperia Lilac Flower Alphabet Tissue Wrapped Journal Tim Holtz Lace Baseboard Frame Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

Here’s how I wrapped the folio with the tissue.  It’s a pretty simple process.

  • First, open a sheet of the Finnabair tissue and lay it face down on your work surface.
  • Next, cover the face of the folio base with Distress Collage medium.  You will need to work quickly as this medium is fast drying.
  • Now, center the folio base face down over the tissue paper, keeping it as straight as you can. Gently brayer over the paper to seal it to the base.
  • At this point, I folded the tissue paper over the interior of the folio to see how much I should trim away.  I wanted it to completely cover the folio interior without excessive overlap.
  • Next, cut “v” slits in the 4 corners of the tissue paper to make it easier to wrap and fold it over the folio interior.  This is done the same way as you would if you were wrapping a mini album cover with paper.
  • Now, brush the inside of the folio base with a good layer of Distress collage medium, then fold the tissue paper to the inside of the folio.  You will have overlap, and that is fine.  Just keep adding Distress Collage Medium until all the edges are sealed.
  • Finally, use a brayer to gently seal the tissue paper to the folio surface.  Carefully fold along the score lines and then walk away and let everything dry.

TIP: Dry time is essential!  Damp tissue paper tears.

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio: Rice Paper Overlay

I cut a medallion from some Stamperia Rice Paper that I had in my stash, and layered that over the folio front.  Then I brayered  and spattered small amounts of Distress paint to create a more aged appearance.  Next I applied two coats of clear Gesso.  After this, I applied Distress Oxide Inks through a Stamperia stencil, followed by Distress Opaque Crackle Texture.  The crackle medium picks up color from the Oxide Ink and the end result is so pretty.

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio: The Frame and Flowers

I am loving the new Tim Holtz Lace Baseboard Frames!  They alter beautifully!

TIP: Use scraps of rice paper to decorate the frame.

To alter the frame, I brushed it with Oxide Inks, spattered with Distress Paints and misted with Mica Spray.   The image is from the Flower Alphabet Collection.  I pulled out some Heartfelt Creations Lilac stamps and dies to make the flowers and leaves.  Vintage lace and buttons from my stash add the perfect finishing touch.

Heartfelt Creations Buttons and Blooms Shaker Folio for the Alumni Hop

Hello Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations February Alumni Hop!  This Buttons and Blooms Shaker Folio is made with the amazing Buttons and Blooms Collection and an assortment of dies from Heartfelt Creations.  Crisp, white taffeta ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect dance partner for this study in blue.

Heartfelt Creations Buttons and Blooms Shaker Folio by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

You can find a tutorial for the base of this 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ folio HERE.  (I’ve used different papers, but the design is the same. ) These little folios are made from one sheet of 8 1/2″ x 11 cardstock.  Quick and easy to put together, they make great gifts!

Buttons and Blooms Shaker Folio: Creating the Shaker Window

White Taffeta Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon on a Buttons and Blooms Shaker Folio by Kathy Clement

To make the shaker window, follow these simple steps:

  • First, select a 4 1/4″ x 51/2″ card front with an oval focal from the Buttons and Blooms Paper Collection.
  • Next, die cut the focal from the card front using the Eyelet Oval & Basics Large Die set.Flip the card front to the back side (patterned paper side). We will be using this side of the card front.
  •  Cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of clear cardstock.  Use Dries Clear Adhesive to secure this to the back side (which is actually the front side) of this panel.  Or, sew together using a sewing machine as I did here.
  • To make the white frame, layer the eyelet die and the same die that you used to cut out the focal on a sheet of white cardstock.  Make sure everything is centered, secure to the paper with a bit of tape and run through your die cut machine. Center and adhere this over opening.
  •  Now back the shaker front with 2 layers of 1/2″ foam tape.
  • Next, adhere the die cut focal image in the center of a 5 1/2″ square of the blue plaid paper from the collection.
  • Place Sparkletz Sailor’s Sky Shaker Mix in the center of the focal image.  Then remove the liner from the foam tape and carefully center over the focal image so that it lines up perfectly.
Buttons and Blooms Shaker Folio: Creating the Flowers

How to Make Heartfelt Creations Buttons and Blooms Flowers by kathy Clement

Here are the steps to follow to make the flowers:

  • Stamp one set of Buttons and Blooms onto the pastel chevron pattern using Cobalt Blue Archival Ink.  Emboss with clear powder. Use Sponge Daubers to add yellow and blue inks from your stash to the petal layers.
  • Now die cut the flowers with the matching Buttons and Blooms Die.
  • Next,  Place the petal layers face down in the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold.  Spritz lightly with a little water and run through your die cutting machine.
  • Press the center of each flower layer with the 8mm Ball Stylus to lift the petals and create dimension.
  • Once you have layered your flowers together with hot glue, paint the petals with shimmer spray and add a threaded button to the center.
  • To make the leaves, stamp the 2 single leaf clusters from Leafy Accents onto the same patterned paper using a dark green ink.  Heat emboss with clear powder. Die cut with the matching Leafy Accents Die.
  • Use sponge daubers to color the leaves.  Shape in the Leafy Accents 3D Shaping Mold.

Add a little greeting in your own handwriting to really personalize this get well card.

Trifold Folio with Box Pocket by Kathy Clement

Once the folio is fully opened, you see a slit pocket, a box pocket and a flap made with a Tim Holtz Ancestors Photo.

Buttons and Blooms Tag Insert by kathy clement

To create the slit pocket, cut along the top layer of the chevron pattern with a craft knife.  Top the tag with white taffeta ribbon and silver metallic string.  Die cut a ticket sentiment and add it to the tag.  Slide it into the prepared pocket.  When you adhere this panel to the folio base, be sure to only place adhesive on the edges, or the tag will get stuck!

Die cut a ticket and add it to the pocket image.  And you have plenty of room here to add your own personal get well message.

Carta Bella Spring Market Hello Sunshine Card Folio

Hello, Friends!  Here’s an encouraging word for you: Spring is just around the corner!  To help you visualize warm sunny days, I’ve created a cheery little Carta Bella Spring Market Hello Sunshine Card folio for you today. I gave myself the gift of a week of free creating last week.  No design team assignments, no deadlines.  Just paper play, and I had so much fun.  This Hello Sunshine Card Folio was made during one of my play times.

TIP: Use dies to cut patterned paper in geometric shapes to add quick and easy layers to your card design.  I’ve used a Spellbinders Label and Circle die, then popped each layer up on waste chipboard to add extra dimension to the card design.

TIP: Create a sweet little tuck spot by adhering just the right side and the bottom edge of this shaped ephemera card to the top half of the interior.  Add a Spring Market Banner Flag to the pocket for extra fun.

TIP:  Use your scraps to create this darling 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ wallet.  The scrap should be 4 1/4″ high and at least 8″ long. Score on the long side at 3 1/4″  and 6 1/2″.  Line with designer papers.  Add one of the cut apart images from the collection kit along with a little sticker to the front for quick and easy design.

Hello Sunshine Card Folio: Tag and Pocket Combo

The large pocket holds this pretty tag that I die cut with my Heartfelt Creations tag Die.  Add some “joy” with a Spring Market sticker.  I’ve matted my card layers on Jelly Bean Green Heavy Weight Cardstock from My Favorite Things.

TIP: Mix 12×12 patterned papers with Carta Bella Spring Farmhouse 6×6 patterned papers so that the scale of the design matches the scale of the tag.

Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop: Tulip Time Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations January 2019 Alumni Hop!  Today we’re going to tiptoe through the tulips with a Tulip Time Shaker Card.

 

Heartfelt Creations Tulip Time Shaker Card by Kathy Clement for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop photo 01

Tulips have always been a favorite flower for me, so you can imagine my delight when Heartfelt Creations released the stunning Tulip Time Collection.   This 5 1/2″  square card boasts a tulip garden and a shaker element.  Come tiptoe through the tulips with me!

Tulip Time Shaker Card: Creating the base

Heartfelt Creations Tulip Time Shaker Card by Kathy Clement for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop photo 02

  • Create a 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card base with a 1/2″ spine.  To do this, cut (2) 5 1/2″ x 11″ panels from ivory cardstock.  Place 1/2″ Scor-Tape on the short end of one panel, then overlap the second panel on the Scor-Tape margin.  Score at 5 1/2″ , 6″, and again at 11 1/2″.  Trim this panel with a 2 1/2″ overhang to serve as a pocket.
  • Cut a circular opening in a a 6″ x 6″ card front image using the Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die.  Cut the opening with the 2nd largest circle die.  Trim this panel to measure 4 1/2″ square.
  • Create the eyelet frame by nesting the 3rd largest circle die evening inside the eyelet circle.  Adhere the frame to the card opening.
  • Next, cut a 4 1/4″ piece of clear acrylic cardstock and adhere to the back side of the window you just created.
  • Then add 2 layers of 1/2″ foam tape to the back side of the window page.  Set aside.
  • Cut a 5 1/2″ square of the magenta patterned paper.
  • Now cut a 5 1/4″ panel of the garden scene paper and stitch to the magenta panel.  Adhere this to the card base.
  • Cut the tulip card front from the paper collection and trim to fit behind the window panel.
  • Then fill the center with a sequin mix, remove the liner tape from the window panel and carefully center over the tulip card front.
  • Die cut 2 Elegant Pocket Accents from ivory cardstock.  Tap with Dries Clear Adhesive and cover with Rajni Chawla’s Frosting Powder. Adhere behind the window panel.
  • Center and adhere this entire assembly to the card front.

Tulip Time Shaker Card: Creating the Tulip Garden

Heartfelt Creations Tulip Time Shaker Card by Kathy Clement for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop photo 04

To create the tulip garden, follow these steps:

  • First, die cut all the tulip and leaf layers from the paper collection using the Tulip Time Die.
  • Next, customize the colors by brushing the petal layers with chalk inks.  I used ColorBox Petal Points in shades of yellow, pink, fuchsia, purple and green.  (The individual colors are not labeled on Petal Points, but you can find ColorBox Chalk Inks HERE.)
  • Now, place the petal layers face down in the 3D Tulip Shaping Mold.  You can add up to 3 layers of petals, but be sure to spritz each layer lightly with water.
  • Run the petal layers through your die cutting machine.
  • Shape the layers with the Flower Shaping Tool Kit.
  • Add Go ManGo Prills to the centers of the larger tulips.

I opted not to add stamens to my tulips.  Instead, I shaped the leaves and layered them at the base of my shaker panel.  Then I added in my finished tulips.  Add Spanish Moss with a hot glue gun, then tuck in a little pink bow and button.  You may also run pink gingham ribbon around the edges of the shaker panel and top with a button.

When I was pleased with the composition of my tulip garden, I painted the petals with Diamond Stickles and set aside to dry.

I added a pocket and pull out photo album to the inside of my card.

The photo album measures 4 1/2″ square and has 5 panels on each side.  The center back panel is wrapped with pink gingham ribbon and adhered to the card base.

It’s so much fun to decorate the individual panels with designer paper.  I also added a small pocket and tucked in the circular cut out from the window panel.

Such pretty papers!

The large pocket on the bottom is a 4 1/2″  x 5″ tea bag wallet.

I’ve tucked in a sweet mini silver spoon, tea bag and honey stick here.  The pocket is decorated with an Elegant Pocket Accent.

Festive Holly Shaker Card Folio for the Alumni Hop

This hop is now closed.  The randomly chosen winner is Betty Dean.  Thanks for hopping!

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations December 2018 Hop.  For this final hop of 2018, I chose create a Festive Holly Shaker Card Folio.  I love that this Christmas collection works well for winter cards, too.

Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Shaker Card Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Shaker cards always feel festive.  This one measures 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ with a 1/4″ spine.  Here’s a list of the Heartfelt Creations products I used in this project.

Festive Holly Shaker Card Folio: Creating the Frame

To create the frame for this shaker card, you will need to first die cut the largest Intricate Swirl Frame from white cardstock.  Next, you will cut out a “window” inside the frame.  Place a ruler on a diagonal line from the top left corner of the frame to the bottom right corner. Now use your craft knife to cut carefully  just inside the stitch lines from one corner to the other.  Once you’ve made this first cut.  you can then use your scissors to carefully remove the solid area inside the stitch lines.  

Now you can adhere clear cardstock to the back side of the frame and create the shaker element as you would normally do.  You can find an easy to follow shaker card tutorial HERE

Festive Holly Shaker Card Folio: The Flowers

Instead of using poinsettia on this card, I chose to work with the Oakberry Lane Blossoms.  Here’s how I made the flowers:

  • First, locate the red patterned paper in the Festive Holly Paper pad.
  • Now, stamp two sets of flowers using Versamark Ink.
  • Cover the stamped images with Ultra Fine Silver Embossing Powder.  Heat Emboss.
  • Die Cut the Oakberry Lane Flowers with the matching dies.
  • Place the flower layers face down in the ED Blossom Shaping Mold.  You can add up to 3 layers of flower.  Just remember to spritz lightly with water between each layer.
  • Run the mold through your die cut machine following your manufacturer’s guidelines.
  • Remove the flowers from the mold and place on the shaping mat.  Press into the center of each flower with the ball stylus to shape.
  • Stack the layers together, alternating the petals and secure with hot glue.
  • Once the flowers are arranged on the card, fill the centers with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive and Mini Pearls Prills.  
  • Drizzle adhesive along the petal edges and add more prills.
  • Stamp Oakberry leaves onto a scrap of light blue paper from the collection.  Heat emboss with silver powder and add to the arrangement.

Festive Holly Shaker Card Folio:  A Peek Inside

The interior of this card has a fun flap/pocket combo as well as a large pocket with a folio insert.

Open the flap to reveal sweet treats tucked inside a pair of pockets.  I made the lacy tea bag pocket with the corner die from Album Tags and Accents Die Set. I also die cut a tag from the collection using the Album Tags and Accents Die, then attached a chocolate treat with removable Glue Dots.

The large pocket on the bottom holds a little folio and tag combo.

This folio measures 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ so it will hold 4″ x 6″ photos.  The belly band is decorated with the Ornamental Tags Die Cut.  

Use the large tag die from Tickets and Tags to cut out a tag from patterned paper and cardstock.  Glue these together, punch a hole, add a silver charm and silver string to create a pretty bookmark.  I also tucked in a crocheted snowflake as a sweet gift.  

You can create this little Festive Holly Shaker Card folio easily by cutting a 12″ x 6 1/4″ panel of designer paper.  Score at 4 1/4″ and again at 8 1/4″.  Line two panels with 4″ x 6″ cardstock to serve as photo mounts.  The shorter panel is a great place to write a personal greeting.
