September Projects for Blue Fern Studios



Hello again friends!! I am back this month with some more projects and this time I'd love to start off with a layout to get me in the mood for autumn! The days are getting shorter and the air is getting crisper so I decided that the gorgeous Autumn Anthology papers would be perfect for my first layout this month. I chose the gorgeous Newsworthy sheet from the collection.


Here you can see where I took some cutouts from the Calling Cards paper from Autumn Anthology and tucked them under my 13 year old daughter's photo. She loves her makeup and knows her way around photo filters so she is looking about 20 here...I don't want her growing up so fast! You can see the background stamping here using the Forever set and the butterfly from the Bourbon Street set.  I did some misting and masking with moulding paste. 

I just love the Royal Monarchs chipboard set and have added a butterfly here to match in with the butterflies in her hair in the photo!! I embossed the chipboard using the Imagine Ink Buttercup and Auburn Embossing Powder colors.


I just love the flowers from Blue Fern Studios! Don't you just love the deep red color of those lilies from the Seaside Lilies collection, just beautiful. I also added the large yellow Attic Charm Glitter Rose and some dark brown Courtship Blooms. I tucked in some pieces from the Leafy Bough chipboard and I colored them with Auburn Imagine Ink Embossing Powder.


To finish off this layout I added my title in the bottom corner using the Be Your Best Selfie chipboard from the Selfie Squares set. Again, I added Imagine Ink Embossing Powder in Buttercup and Auburn.

My next layout features my camera shy youngest when she was young and less camera shy! My little beach babe!! For the base of this layout I chose the beautiful Regalia paper from the Seaside Cottage collection and cut out some fun words from the Calling Cards collection.


Here you can see my background stamping with some of my favorites stamps: Making Plans, Forever, and Essential Textures. I used the Forever stamp in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and the others were Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Here you can see the flower cluster. I chose flowers to tone in with my daughter's bright swim suit! She has a bright pink Courtship Rose in her hair and the same color Attic Charm Daisy, the pink lily is from the Dark Tropic Lily set.


For the Beach Babe chipboard I used Seven Seas and 14 Karat Imagine Ink Embossing Powders... If you look closely around my daughter you can see where I used the Oatmeal Imagine Ink Embossing Powder, it has a great grainy looking texture perfect to imitate a sand texture!


I added a few shells to my layout which I love!! Underneath my little beach girl I added the Seaside Flourish chipboard, again using the Seven Seas and 14 Karat Imagine Ink Embossing Powders I tucked a light and dark pink set of Courtship Roses.to add to my embellishment cluster.

My final project is a set of four cards. I love the blues and browns of this collection and I think the images are gorgeous, so I chose four images from the Calling Cards paper and made those the focus of my cards. For my first two cards I used the Splendor page. I added stitching around the edges and popped the image up foam tape. I then added some Seaside Lilies and my favorite shells from my stash. I also tucked in a light brown Courtship Bloom.  For some background interest and texture I added Mesh Bits and for the card on the left I embossed with Sea Mist Imagine Ink Embossing Powder and for the right card Azure Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. I have added the beautiful Seasonal Wildflowers pieces embossed with Melon Imagine Ink Embossing Powder to the flower clusters for a bit of detail. I finished off the cards by tucking in some cheesecloth for a netting kind of texture to the cards.


For my final two cards I used a base of the Voyage paper, I just love the colors and images in the paper. I then added the adorable vintage sailor suit boy images for these cards.  Again I tucked in some Mesh Bits for texture. These were embossed using Cerulean Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. For my clusters I used the beautiful blue Seaside Roses as well as the dark brown Courtship Blooms. I added in some seashells from my stash and then the coral pieces from the Seaside Treasures which I embossed in Poinsettia Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. I finished off these cards with some stitching around the edges.
