Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Card Folio

Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Card Folio for Frilly and Funkie “Impress Us” Challenge

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for a brand new challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  I’ve created this Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Card Folio using the new Deluxe Collector’s Edition.  We’ll take a closer look at it in just a second, but first, let’s see what our lovely hostess, Sarah Emily, has to say about the challenge.

Challenge Theme:  Impress Us
Who doesn’t want to make a great first impression? For this challenge, we would like you to use your embossing folders or any other way you can make an impression on your vintage or shabby chic project. Go ahead and ‘Impress Us’ with your creativity!

Twelve Days of Christmas Card Folio: The Inspiration

The inspiration for this card was my new Tim Holtz Laurel 3-D Impresslits Texture Fade.  I’ve had it in my stash for a while now, and always intended to use it to create a wreath. This challenge afforded the perfect opportunity!  And what would go better with a wreath than a Christmas project?  So I pulled out my Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas DCE and went to work.

Twelve Days of Christmas Card Folio: Making the Impression

These are the steps I followed to create this dimensional winter wreath.

  • First, create an inky background with a mix of green Distress Oxide Inks.  I used the faithful smoosh and spritz method that we are all so familiar with.
  • Next, cut the inked panels to fit inside the Laurel 3-D Impresslits Folder. The wreath uses 3 embossed pieces, but I did extra so I could experiment.
  • Now, place the inked panels in the folder ink side up if you want to EMBOSS (raised edges) or ink side down if you want to DEBOSS (recessed edges). Run through your die cutting machine following manufacturer instructions.  The folder will cut and emboss at the same time, which I love.
  • Then, tap the raised edges of the laurel with a little Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink.
  • Next, sprinkle on some Seth Apter Ancient Amber Baked Texture.  Tap off the excess and heat emboss.
  • Spatter with diluted white acrylic paint and dry brush the edges as well.
  • Finally, lay 3 branches in a circular shape and adhere the ends to form a wreath.

The base layer for this 5″ x 7″ is a 4 7/8″ x 6 7/8″ panel from the “B” side of Twelve Days. Give the folio a rustic feel by distressing all the edges, inking with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide and dry brushing with white acrylic paint.  I also dry brushed the flowers and foliage.

Stitch a 4″ x 6″ panel from “Five Golden Rings” onto a slightly larger piece of burlap and fringe the edges.  Place dimensionals on the back and adhere to the card.  Then place dimensionals on the back of the wreath and adhere.  Adhere the chipboard frame directly to the wreath.  You will need to back the circle chip with a couple layers of dimensionals before adhering.

Tie a double loop bow with Christmas Traditions Plaid Ribbon.   Create a floral cascade with Renae Scarlet Flowers and Rosemund Moonlight Roses from Little Birdie Crafts.  Tuck the “Dec 25” chipboard in under the bow cluster.

To turn a card into what I call a card folio, simply add pockets and/or some interactive elements.  I’ve done both on this festive card.

The large pocket holds this 4.25″ x 6.25 tea bag wallet.  There’s room to write a personal greeting on the front of the wallet.

Then tuck a tea bag, honey stick and cute Christmas spoon inside to turn it into a gift.  You could also add a photo, gift card or note here.

The interactive element is this accordion fold mechanism.  It will hold 4″ x 6″ photos so you can add all the happy memories of your family Christmas here.

Here’s a peek at the inside of the accordion fold mechanism.  Room for journaling, a pocket to hold little mementos, tuck spots and room for photos, too.  The mechanism is held shut with a magnetic closure.

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.

I’ve filled the inside pages with all kinds of interactive elements.  You’ll see them all in the video, so I’ll just share photos here.

Graphic 45 Imagine Hot Air Balloon Embellishment Tutorial

Graphic 45 Imagine Hot Air Balloon Embellishment Tutorial and Tim Holtz Altered Mini Clipboard for the “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” Challenge at Frilly and Funkie

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for a brand new challenge on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  I’m the hostess for this round, and the theme is “Planes, Trains and Automobiles.”  I’ve prepared a really fun Graphic 45 Imagine Dimensional Hot Air Balloon Embellishment Tutorial for you today.  The balloon is the focal point on my altered Tim Holtz Mini Clipboard.  You’re going to have so much fun with this post!  We’ll look at the details in a moment, but first, let’s look at the challenge guidelines.

Challenge Theme:  Planes, Trains and Automobiles
Summer is a great time to travel.  For this challenge, create a vintage or shabby chic travel themed project.  Think folded maps, cruise ships, road signs, compasses, passports, trains, planes or automobiles. As long as your project features a travel theme, you’re headed in the right direction.
Tim Holtz Mini Clipboard with Graphic 45 Imagine Hot Air Balloon Embellishment Tutorial

Graphic 45 Imagine Hot Air Balloon Embellishment Tutorial and Tim Holtz Altered Mini Clipboard by Kathy Clement for the Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

Folks, I hope you are not tired of seeing me create with this Graphic 45 Imagine Collection.  I keep thinking of new ways to use it.  This time, I’ve used it to alter a Tim Holtz Mini Clipboard.  What fun!  I got a little mixed media practice in, which made me very, very happy.  Then, the idea to create a dimensional hot air balloon embellishment popped into my head.  I pulled out my G45 Imagine Stamps and 12″ x 12″ Patterns and Solids popped into my head, and the fun factor rose to new heights.

Tim Holtz Altered Mini Clipboard: Laying the Foundation

If you’ve never altered one of these little clipboards before, you really owe it to yourself to do so.  They are so much fun to work with.  You can find examples of past projects HERE and HERE.  I love the fact that the clip is easy to remove from the base.  This makes the job of altering the mini clipboard so much easier.

 

First, I traced the base onto my designer paper.  After sponging the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, I adhered the papers to the base.  If I had it to do again, I would only line the back side of the base as I ended up covering up most of the paper on the front with my mixed media goodies.  I applied Ranger Opaque Crackle Texture paste around the edges, then gently head dried.  When the cracks were clearly visible and the paste was dry, I went over the surface with Gathered Twigs and Tarnished Brass Distress Stains.  I added some more texture with Seth Apter Dirty Sand Baked Enamel, some die cut gears, and some random stamping.

Graphic 45 Imagine Hot Air Balloon Embellishment Tutorial

I’ve created a little Snapguide tutorial so you can create your own Graphic 45 Hot Air Balloon Embellishment. This was my favorite part of this whole project.

Check out How to Graphic45 Dimensional Hot Air BalloonEmbellishment by Kathy Clement on Snapguide.

I hope you’ll find lots of ways to use this Hot Air Balloon Embellishment Tutorial. If you wish to add this dimensional embellishment to a card front, don’t adhere the final panel on the right.  Instead, secure it with one of Tim’s mini paper clips. That way, you can fold it flat for mailing.

The Flip Side

I hate to let a perfectly good surface go to waste.  So I created a little waterfall element on the flip side of my altered clipboard.  I used Graphic 45 Regular Kraft Tags and the Regular Tag and Gears Die for this step.  The domed edge of the tag creates such a pretty shape that I could not resist using them.

Enclose magnets on the back side of the belly band to make a neat closure for the waterfall. I simply folded the ends of this border strip over Basic Grey small magnets and adhered shut.  It works beautifully.

Score a 1/2″ flap on the base of each tag, Die cut the tag liner using the Square Tag and Gears Die.  Cut a 1/2″ flap from the base of each liner.  Then adhere it below the fold line as seen here.  This way the waterfall mechanism will fold easily.

I think a hot air balloon vacation could be quite the adventure, don’ t you?

Create this little folio by scoring a 6 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ scrap of kraft cardstock in half.  Round the corners.  Add a 3″ x 4″ ephemera card to the front and adhere to the clipboard base.

Place magnets beneath the liner papers and then cover with designer paper and the “B” side of an ephemera card.  This hidden journaling spot is a great place to write down memoirs of your trip.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Challenge: Now it’s YOUR turn!

I hope you’ll play along in this fun challenge by linking up your vintage or shabby chic travel themed project at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog.

The winner will earn the chance to be a Guest Designer here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. We are also awarding Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team, because we can’t pick just one favorite!

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

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?
