Grungy Mixed Media Valentine's Day Card by Tracey Sabella

Hello everyone, it's Tracey back with a new project to share with you. Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I don't know about you, but my husband isn't into girly pink hearts, so I really enjoy coming up with ideas on how to show my love with a more grungy look. Here's my Valentine card for him featuring ScrapBerry's fabulously masculine Adventure Awaits and Words Live Forever Collections. I've also used ScrapBerry's gorgeous Silver Wings and a polymer heart from the Vintage Circus Collection.

Close-Ups
The background is a sheet from the 6x6" Adventure Awaits collection. The Memos page from the Words Live Forever collections has wonderful vintage paper pieces along with the  clock that I cut out and layered in the center of the card. The edges are inked to give a grungy vintage feel. The Vintage Circus Polymer Heart was brushed with black gesso, then texture added with mini art stones in soft matte gel.

The ScrapBerry's Metal Wings are a focal point centered with a corrugated heart in theme with Valentine's Day. I have a pulled an assortment of gears, and assorted pieces to arrange around the heart and sentiment. Before adhering, I painted the odd assortment with black gesso. Once everything was in place, I brushed with Rust and Patina Effect Paste, then rubbed with several colors of art wax to bring out the amazing textures. Around the edges I've added texture with art stones, mica flakes, and microbeads.

I simply adore the woodgrain and gear images on the background paper.

It makes my day when I find an old rusty washer laying on the ground. This washer is one of those sweet finds.

My tag consists of many layers of both papers and embellishments.

Valentine Mixed Media ATCs with Cherished Jewels Collection by Tracey Sabella

It's Tracey back with my first ScrapBerry's project for 2018. I thought I'd get a jump start on Valentine's Day which is coming up next month with some sweet artist trading cards featuring the gorgeous Cherished Jewels Collection with colors that are just perfect for this sweet holiday.


Close-Ups
I trimmed down one of the cards from the Tags Romance & Tiaras page to fit this ATC and adhered it to the card with 3D matte gel. I added a layer of crackle to the corners. Once the crackle was dry, I stamped a flourish with the Elegy clear stamp set in coordinating permanent ink. The texture is spritzed with a color spray to highlight the crackle, then rubbed with several colors of wax. The cluster features a ScrapBerry's Clove Lilac Paper Flower highlighted with gold wax and a Wedding Resin Chrysanthemum.

I cut two ACT sized pieces from one of the 6x6" papers to create this and the next cards. I spread the crackle paste around the design elements on the paper, allowing them to show through.


I hope you've been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry's products
to create a few handcrafted valentines!

Romantic Card with Birds of Paradise

Hi!
It's Romy here and first of all I would like to wish you a very happy, healthy and creative 2018! 
To start off the year, I will show you a card I made with the wonderful Birds of Paradise collection. It's a romantic and shabby chic card featuring lots of fussy cutting.


I attached three layers of papers on top of my cardstock card base and also added two pieces of washi tape at the top and at the bottom of my card. After that, I incorporated a chipboard tag in the middle and arranged different fussy cut flowers, leaves and birds on top of it. Finally, I added a wood title, a ScrapBerry's metal clock and a few pearls.
