My final post for Blue Fern Studios!

I can't believe a year has flown by and it is time to finish my term here at Blue Fern Studios!! I have loved working with the amazing products and my talented fellow team members.  I am so grateful for the wonderful opportunity to design here!!  For my last post here I have made two layouts and set of cards.


My first layout features the gorgeous Vintage Christmas collection Wonderland paper. I decided to do a snowy layout and just love these colors! I chose a gorgeous wintry vintage image of a family gathering pine boughs for the holidays.


Here in this first close up I have added some layers under the photo using the Vintage Christmas 2 Calling Cards cutouts. I love the Snowflake Frame which I have embossed with Imagine Ink Icicle Embossing Powder. I've added a snowflake from the Shabby Flakes collection which has been embossed with Icicle and Cotton Candy Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. 


In this photo you can see how I've used several background stamps to build up texture. I have used the Making Plans stamp, the Crackle Textures stamp and the Coarse Fabrics stamps using various distress inks. I also edged  my chipboard with Festive Berries Distress Ink to tie into the colors of the paper.


I've used some gorgeous flowers on this layout, the beautiful red Christmas Bloom and pink Soft Blossoms. For the title of my layout I used the Wonder chipboard from the Wish Wonder Dream set, and again used Icicle Imagine Ink Embossing Powder

My next project is a set of cards using both sides of the Vintage Christmas 2 Jolly paper. I always love to use the Calling Cards page with its gorgeous cutouts and images to make a set of cards when I can.


In my first card I used the beautiful Holiday Deer chipboard piece, embossed in Antique Gold Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. The Yours and Mine at Christmas Time actually came from the branding strip at the bottom of one of the papers!  The red and aqua flowers are part of the Christmas Blooms set while the white one is from the Soft Blooms set.  To finish off the card I used some ribbon from my stash and sewed in brown around the edge of the card.


I love the image on my next card, so much fun! I have added the Christmas Cheer sentiment from the Calling Cards paper as well.  Underneath my image I have added a bit of twine from my stash. The beautiful snowflakes are from the Let it Snow set, embossed appropriately in the Snow Imagine Ink Embossing Powder! The red flower is from the Memoires Blooms and the brown lilies are from the Winter Lilies set.  Again, I have finished off the card with some brown stitching along the edges.


For my final card, I've used the other side of the Jolly paper for the background and some papers from the Calling Cards sheet again.  The flowers are both from the Christmas Blooms set.  The foliage chipboard is from the Layering Stems set and is embossed in Sage Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. I have added some ribbon and a small pine cone from my stash and stitched along the edge to finish it off.

My final layout for Blue Fern Studios features another vintage image and the gorgeous Vintage Christmas Let it Snow paper as its base.


In this first close up you can see the beautiful Ruth's Doily peeking out from under the photo cluster, embossed in Golden Bricks Imagine Ink Embossing Powder. I have used more of the Calling Cards cutouts tucked underneath the image to build up the layers.


I have again used more of the beautiful red Christmas Blooms flower and the chocolate brown Late Winter Lilies as my flower cluster.  I have used a Mini Flourish chipboard embossed in the Pyrite Image Ink Embossing Powder as a finishing touch on the photo cluster.


The Night Before Christmas chipboard piece has been embossed in Ruby Imagine Ink Embossing Powder and you can see the background stamping I have done featuring stamps from the Forever, Essential Textures, and Texture Circles sets.  I finished off this cluster with another Late Winter Lily.
