Love- Card- Gold Foil Trend

Prima is showcasing Trends on their blog and I created a card especially for this feature.

One of the reoccurring trends I saw this year at CHA was the use of Gold Foil. I created this card using different gold foil techniques. I used black, gold and bronze because I wanted to create a manly card for a very special man in my life. 

I used a gold foiling technique to create the stamped background using  Finnabair cling stamps. Then I used Prima's new gold foil wood icons as the centre of my card

813888- Time traveler's memories No. 70
962050- Finnabair cling stamps rust & dust
961961- Finnabair clear stamp
547424- precious metals collection gilded
574871- Briella blooming
574666- Luna luminous
579746- Wood icons with foil hearths & phrases
563424- Decorative frames lady bird
563417- Decorative frames engraver
891954- Ingvild Bolme Metallic chalk edger set

Hope you have a great day!!

Chill- Prima's March BAP Challenge

Well, another month has passed and we're already in March and with each passing months comes the BAP challenge at Prima.
Below is my layout created for the March BAP:

 I thought to design a beach themed layout using some of the elements from the sketch.
 I used the bottom part of the sketch to mimi the sand at the beach and the background paper was the water. Most of the products on this layout are from the Seashore collection and they fit perfect with my picture

Your Hugs Heal- Blue Fern Studios March sketch challenge

I'm here again with the march sketch for Blue Fern Studios using the new Love Story collection. This is just the perfect collection for valentine's or simply to show your love for someone else.

Here is the sketch below:

This is an old picture of my son. He could be about 7 years old and I've always loved the look on his innocent face here and how he's hugging his stuffed animal so tightly.
He's 13 now, well almost 14 (next month), and I still love his childhood innocence. His hugs are so amazing they heal, hence the title.

I combined the Blue Fern Studios Love Story collection with the Sanctuary collection.
I stamped with the new Love Story stamps and used fussy cut elements around the page.

I used the "heart hugs" chipboard pieces and one of the "ever after" frames to frame the photo.

Papers: Blue Fern Studios Love Story and Sanctuary
Chipboard- Blue Fern studios
Stamps: Blue Fern Studios: Love Story 
Flowers: Prima
Stencil: Tim Holtz
Alpha: recollections
Viva decor black pearl pen
Metal embellishments: Prima
Prima fluid chalk ink: metallic red, metallic silver, black 
coal and sand

I hope you get a chance to play with us this month!!
Have a wonderful day!!
