Hey Crafty Friends, real quick I'm sharing my entry for Cuts2luv September Challenge! I haven't had much time lately to join any challenges so I was glad I finally had a chance to enter one this month! I love the moodboard and sketch, some of my favorite colors to create with!
I used Cuts2luv's design Neija Zeugme and also their Beyond the Stars design. Their buttons are so fun to create with!
Hello Blue Fern Studios Fans! Phyllis here to share my last layout for Fan of the Month. I created a layout using the Amber & Apricot collection. So Gorgeous! I love colors of fall.
First off I started with Amber & Apricot's Joyful paper and cut off the edges then did some distressing. I added Amber & Apricot's Faded Blooms paper for my backing. I love how the brownish tan and beautiful design looks behind Joyful paper. I also distressed the edges. I used Birdsong and tore around the birds and a portion of the paper for my design. Then I used the other side of Birdsong for some contrast and tore some more paper.
I added texture paste through a stencil, and then added Blue Fern Studios Blood Orange embossing powder. It was exactly what I was hoping for, just enough glitter and color. I also used the Blue Fern Studios Crackle & Grunge Grid Stamps for more texture.
r layering I added Blue Fern Studios flowers and chipboard - Apricot Blooms, Wanderlust Lilies, Fern Leaves, Manchester Frame and Roman Clock chipboard pieces. I added Blue Fern Studios embossing powders Avocado and Chili powder to the Manchester Frame, and then added some Blood Orange to it. For the Roman Clock I used Blue Fern Studios Chili Powder. I painted the Fern Leaves chipboard pieces with gold acrylic paint. For the last part of creating my layout I added some Blue Fern Studios Twig & Mustard Seedlings. For the title I used the Amber & Apricot Sticker Chipboard piece, How Sweet it is to be Loved by you.
Chipboard: Fern Leaves, Manchester Frame & Roman Clock

Hey Blue Fern Studios Fans Phyllis here to share another layout using papers from the Wanderlust collection! I'm a huge fan of shades of blues, it reminds me of the water at a beach!
I started stamping with Blue Fern Studios Arcadia Textures stamp and Crackle Textures stamp. After stamping I did some stenciling using White Crackle Texture paste and molding paste. For the burlap texture I added some of Blue Fern Studios Embossing powders for hints of color. Then with my other stencil I only added the White Crackle Texture paste, it gives it just enough texture to my background.
I also used Blue Fern Studios Corner Flourishs chipboard to my layout, I heat embossed Blue Fern Studios embossing powder and then dry brushed Gesso to soften the colors so they blend in a little bit.
I did some diecutting with the Wanderlust papers for more texture. I added Wanderlust Lillies flowers and a few flowers from the Apricot Blooms flowers. The "Journey" chipboard sticker from Wanderlust collection went perfect with this layout!
For more texture (because I can never have enough) I added beads, art stones and Blue Fern Studios seedlings and embossing powder glitter. I gathered some embellishments from my stash to complete this layout!
This layout was fun to create using lots of Blue Fern Studios items! The paper is Amazing, I still have a hard time cutting into it though!
Thank you for stopping by Blue Fern Studios today, I hope I've inspired you to create something beautiful day!
