mixed-media cards with chippies {SA CRAFTERS}

hello crafty friends!

it is my turn on SA CRAFTERS' blog today and i've prepared two very different mixed-media cards, loaded with chippies, for my post over there. and of course, i would like to share them with you as well!

TIP! there is a brand NEW video tut at the end of this post - 


to create my cards i used papers from KAISERCRAFT "antique bazaar" collection {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS' online store} and gold cardstock.

i covered the gold cardstock with gesso to soften the colour and ruffled the edges of the pattern paper. 

to embellish my quote i used SA CRAFTERS chipboard frames set 3 pc. i atered the frame with STAMPENDOUS shabby white embossing enamel.

i kept the small hearts from the sides of the frame, altered them with STICKLES red glitter glue.



for my second card i used the same paper line from KAISERCRAFT "antique bazaar" {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS' online store} and brown and white cardstock. i adhered all the layers with mounting foam tape.

to alter my background i used two different SA CRAFTERS stencils. first i covere the cardstock with TIM HOLTZ brown distress ink. then i used the 6x6 triangle stencil with black ink to create the black pattern and 6x6 chevron mixed sides stencil with texture paste to create the chevron dimensional layer. finally i sprinkled KAISERMIST "antique gold" on top of it.

to embellish my card i used WOOD POST IT STAMPS 3 pc.

and the large gear wheel from the CHIPBOARD GEARS set, which i altered with STAMPENDOUS aged copper embossing enamel.
