Blue Fern Studios January inspirations ...

Hello everyone!
First of all, Happy New Year !!!
I'm so proud to share whit you my first inspirations of the year for Blue Fern Studios.
It's such an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this wonderful team for the second year.
THANK YOU so much BFS xxx

So let me introduce myself, for those who don't know me.
My name is Melanie, Tartine Peluche on social media. I'm 35 years old and I live Quebec in Canada.
I do principally layouts, sometime cards and canvas, I've been doing scrapbooking for several years, starting with cards, Since 2 years I've changed for layouts and I really love that,
My style is mostly shabby but I like touch everything and discover new techniques.
What is sure, is that my style is very detailed and filled with flowers!

My works are always evolving and that's one of things why I love this art.
You can find me on:

I hope to inspire you all year long.


*Handmade with love*
(Vintage christmas)

To start I used a stencil and pink ink, then with a pink ink pad I stamped with Departure Stamp in a few places and thereafter always with the same stamp I stamped with a brown ink pad.
 That's all for the background.

I stamped on a watercolor paper several times the wreath motif of the stamp Holiday Wreath, then I colored them and cut in leaves only. I used them as foliage for my roses from the collection Garden Blooms to which I added some fake snow.

I altered my Shabby Flakes chipboards with SNOW embossing powder and I also added fake snow on these.A small printed chipboard from Homespun - Printed Chipboard and one white flower from Apricot Blooms finishes this side of my layout.

As a base, I used Vintage Christmas's printed chipboard oval and I created a wreath with the folliage remaining cut out earlier.

Of all the winter chipboards the Winter Deers are really my fav, just because i'm so in love with this wonderful animal. I could put on all my layout :)
This one is embossed with Copper and on top of it I added fake snow too, like my flowers...

* Find Joy in the Journey *
( Remnants )

This background is a little more complicated, much texture and several pieces of chipboard Chain Link Panel that I embossed with Night Sky.

On shrink plastic I stamped a butterfly from the stamp Spring Accents after cooking it, I added some glitters ( Red Wine ) Some flowers and a piece of torn lace 5 complete this side.

I know we don't see much but I embossed my chipboard Rose Shield with Baby Pink. He is hidden by flowers and another piece torn of lace. My title cut in three pieces is embossed with Plum.

On my pink flowers from Spring Florals collection , another butterfly in shrink plasticstamped with Bourbon Street stamp.

I embossed my Organic Vine Corner chipboard and my cutout doily with Ivory powder.

On an acetate sheet, I stamped one butterfly from Butterflies stamp and I cut it.
Maybe you'll see better on the next picture.

* You Make Me Smile *
( Remnants )

Another background a little complicated, that I will not explain to you, for lake of time ...
But I can tell you about this picture. you see myself in the company of my little cat saved. I found him abandoned by another human, just a few months old ... His name is Gaston and I love him so much, I can't see my life without him.

Sometimes, I think I should put less details LOL
I created from the Garden Window chipboard, a vine. All folliage used
are embossed with Green Ivory powder.

The chipboard embossed in Night Sky, on my background, is actually the interior of my Garden Window chipboard that I cutted. The leaves embossed in Green Ivory under the window shutter come from the Forest Branch chipboard. I will use the remaining branch and the bird later ...

I really love the effect of what the berries makes with the mix of flowers. Check in the description below for all details of what I've used. Under the flowers, the Blooming Flourishes chipboard also embossed in Green Ivory powder.
When you order them, you receive two identical pieces, I used both.

For my title, You Make Me Smile I embossed a first time in Baby Pink powder. Then, at just a few places, I used Lavender Eggs powder for a slight contrast and reminiscent of the purple of my layout.

I really love mini beads, and the Blue Fern Studio's seedlings are so cute and polyvalent. Here I've used Mauve and Purple Haze for adding texture and details.
I've mixed together two glitters : Pyrite & Spring Posy in a secret blend ... for make flakes.
 I added them on my background.
