Blue Fern Studios December inspirations ...

Woah! Already a whole year since my first post with you here. :)
I'm really happy to present you again my inspirations. I'll start fist, by thanking you for all your good comments throughout the year, a lot of happiness every month. Thanks so much!

Let me introduce my first layout of month, where winter seems so sweet and magical...
... but it's just an illusion... LOL

*Let it snow !*
(Vintage Christmas)

I start by doing my central part using the chipboard *Holly Frame, I embossed it with Snow powder and I altered it with a little bit of gold wax paste. On the berry I added *Glass seedlings. Then I embossed with *Avocado powder my firs chipboards. I placed a few flowers of the collection *Wanderlust and Tranquil Roses & Lilies ( Sorry these are no longer available )
I cut my Title ''Let it Snow'' on the trim paper.

I used stamp * Jingle Bells with brown solvent ink pad, added some pretty flowers and leaves frome *Wanderlust Vine to which I added two shades of green seedlings,* Fir Tree and  * Green Leaf.
 My ''Homestead'' embellishment is made by stamping on shrink plastic, I love it!
You know  I'm addicted...

My deer... I'm in love with him ... LOL
I started by embossing in *Taupe, then I added *Hot Cocoa powder, two shades of
golden brown. Under the deer I placed some of the chipboard *Snow Medley
that I embossed with *Stormy Skies powder.
A little golden thread and you're done!

Some pieces of golden *lace 9C adds luxury to my layout.
To balance my layout of the color taupe, I added a small chipboard from Leafy Page Accents kit.
You can see the other piece of *Snow Medley under my flowers and fir. I cutted the bird on the paper Wonderland.

*Home Is Where The Heart Is*
( Homespun)

First, I must say that I did'nt know how to work this chipboard, and THE idea has arrived.
So I cut the chipboard and I only keep the part *WHERE THE HEART IS*

I used a part of stamp Christmas Chimney on my background.

To explain the different layers, start with the photo. Under this one a first chipboard, *Frilly Bauble* embossed with a mix of two powders: Baby Pink and Bubble Gum. I cut it in half  and I put on each side of the photo. Then, on each side again, two pieces of *Rose Wreath* embossed in snow
and to finish *Belfast Bouquet* also embossed with two powders, pink rose and bubble gum.
My title is a succession of error: embossed in *Baby Pink* after with *Ebony* powder and to finish with *Bubble Gum* ... Don't know if I do it again I can have the same result LOL

I used the lace7B that I've teinted for adding texture on my background. 

I stamped a butterfly ( from Spring Accents stamp) on a paper

I love lilies flowers , this one come from *Dark Tropic Lilies*
You can see, on the next photo, under *Belfast Bouquet* a piece of  Lace6 and another piece of Lace7B.
Between the laces *Checker Bits* embosed in *Baby Pink*

*Not All Who Wander Are Lost*
(Happy Accident)

A simple layout, use only one stencil, ink and a lot of glitters.

For all my chipboards, I've colored with pencils and I added clear embossing powder.
I've mixed my glitters together and spread them with gel medium it seem like mica flakes...

I really love this stamps! Tattered Newsprint ...

November Blue Fern Studios DT projects

Hello crafty friends, I'm back to share with you my november inspirations.
This month I've used Homespun collection and Vintage Christmas.

*Made With Love...*
( Homespun)

First, I work my photo, several layers of paper and fabric. I used only the frame of the chipboard *Sweet Home Vignette* I embossed it with AVOCADO powder. I cut some paper flowers from *Homespun Mini* and put them in a different layer with some printed chipboard. Some are detached from the cardboard to make only one paper.

I used chipboard *Made with love* as if it was a tea latte, the *lace9A* represents the milk froth.
Sprinkled a little love in his tea with *ingredients* chipboard. Hearts come from negatives of the ''tea cup'' chipboard. I added a few flowers pieces of *lace6*.

Frame come from *Printed Chipboard*

*Made With love* title was embossed with a mix of *baby pink* and *bubble gum* powder.
I really love the result, very subtle.

All the lilies flowers are mixte of all pink lilies flowers from flowers collection of BFS.

My next one, my fav!
*Tea Party*

Layering of my picture was created with the two side of homegrown paper, lace 3 and lace 7B dyed.
My title Home Sweet Home was embossed with a mix of Fern and Speckled Mint powder.

I used Homespun Blooms on this layout, This color ... WOW!! love it!
I separated the flowers and lattice from the lace 7B and I used them separatly.

Lace Round chipboard was embossed with Goldylocks powder and added some pieces of printed chipboard.

Stamp Crackle with Fern embossing powder, Garden Frolic with yellow ink pad
and pieces of lattice, give texture to my background.

I'm addicted to shrink plastic, it's often the way I use stamps, here's an exemple here
with the stamp Hospitali-Tea. An easy way to create unique embellishments.
I used Late winter lilies that match perfectly with homespun blooms. A few buttons and real hazelnuts finished the combinaison of my embellishments.

*Joy*(Vintage Christmas)

I create a very simple layout because the paper alone gives all the magic effect. I think is one of my fav in this collection. I've only used flakes stencil and ink with seedling and
 sequins for my background.

I embossed Frosty Flake with the new color, Taupe, it,s look like precious metal.
I cut paper flower from Greeting Cards paper.

Look at that! My chipboard really shine, love it so much!
To add texture just a few mauve seedlings.

I've been using a lot of metalwire for a while, I'm rolled up everything I find... LOL
After embossing with Taupe powder my title, I added wire on my chipboard and under my photo.

And To finish my layout, I used a  few magical red flowers from Homespun collection.

October Blue Fern Studios inspiration

Hi everyone!
I'm back to the blog to share with you my october inspiration.
My first one is:

 100% Natural Moment

First, I arranged my two paper ( Chapters & Yesteryear) together to create perspective.
I cut the yellow roses from the paper Sunny Disposition and I placed this one under my first layer of paper. Under the top paper and a few other places I placed Lace 3.
As I used the chipboard Happy Moment in the background,
I cut out the words so as not to lose them.

Birds come from 
Amber and Apricot Printed Chipboard.
Yellow butterfly come frome Garden Life Printed Chipboard.
Chipboard Moment have just a layer of white gesso, Rose Leaves was embossed with Avocado Embossing Powder and base of Happy Moment chipboard was embossed with Hot Cocoa embossing powder.

I choose to alter the yellow rose with copper ink in order to have a color a little more orange which better mixed with background paper.

I tried to give the colors to my chipboard Floral Spray, with seedlings... not exactly the result I had in mind but it's pretty I think ...

Christmas in October? Why not?
Here is my second layout with Vintage Christmas collection.
I'll be home for christmas

I started by working my background with blue ink and Lucky embossing powder. I used this last with scratched stamp. I used also serendipity and grungy grid stamps with brown ink,
Then I placed my chipboard panel ( Harlequin) that I embossed with Snow. 

My chipboard Fern (imagined by Pascale B), was embossed in Lucky. I found that it also resembled branches of fir.
For this layout I used all my package of Chritsmas Blooms flowers.

My Snowflake Frame Square, embossed in whole with Fern and stamped in Lucky using Bourbon Street Stamp. Mixt of this two colors are so magical! And with piece of Lace 6 ... realy beautiful.

All my chipboard pieces received in part, a layer of false snow...

My lastest layout features the Attic Charm collection.
Sweet & Lucky

 This page does't seem it, but it's rather simple to make it,
I start with my Garden Frolic stamp, then I put a bit of texture paste
and I finish with my inks.

After embossing my chipboard Treasured Floral Frame with Oatmeal embossing powder, I can start decorating my main element of the page, my photo,
with Attic Charm Daisy, Dark Tropic Lilies ( light pink) and Garden Blooms flowers. I added some cut pieces of Lace 4 and I cut in the paper Attic Key the flowers and I placed under the photo.
I used the embossing powder Baby Pink for my title Sweet this color is very pretty, light soft and bright, almost white.

I altered my chipboard 
Quatrefoil Panel only with colored wax, rose gold.
On my flowers and has some place on my page I also added Pink Diamond glitters.
