SO MANY Projects – Rachelle Sigurdson

 Hello,today I am here to share with you a couple cards & LO’s I did,using lots of Dusty Attic’s Amazing chipboard.I love working with chipboard!!! The cards I made are Christmas Stocking cards. I have been making, the tiny stockings, using the Dusty Attic Christmas Banners& thought I would make a couple cards,in fact I may even make more.
 Before I started to Scrapbook,one of my hobbies was making Christmas Stockings. These cards are stitched together,just like a stocking,leaving the top open for notes,tags& gift Certificates,or whatever else you can squeeze in. Speaking of Gift Certificates, you can now get them from Dusty Attic,plus you can order your own chipboard through Dusty Attic & have it delivered right to your door. Here is my first card,it measures about 4.5 inches wide & 11 inches in length. Oh,you can also hang these up for display….

I used Vintage Frost Basics Collection from Maja Design
The flowers & berries are Petaloo. I painted most of the chipboard with white crackle paint,then rubbed in a brown chalk, once the crackle dried, to bring out the cracks. I used Prima white sand texture for the snow effect..
I hand cut out the little circles for the banner,from the paper, I was using,inked the edges,applied clear varnish & sprinkled on some glitter while the varnish was wet..I did paper layers,used lace,chipboard & pearls in my layers…
Used snowflakes as buttons on the stocking…

I also used ” A Gift for You Collection from Maja Design”
Here are some close ups of detail…
I did distressed, hand stitched,paper layers,using DA chipboard,lace & pearls in my layers..On most of the chipboard I used white crackle……
I dipped the poinsettia in water,then heat gunned it so that the petals would curl up.Then I applied 2 coats of red pepper color ink,then a thick coat of  clear crackle.Once the crackle I dry brushed in some black chalk to bring out the cracks.I then applied Prima white sand texture,sprinkling on some glitter as the texture was still wet. I also traced the outer piece of the poinsettia,to make leaves under with the paper I was working with. I then glued all the pieces together,using tweezers,to hold it together & giving the glue time to dry… 
Here is a LO I did,for the 7 Dots Challenge,using Texture. I am not really good at using all the different medias on paper,but I do love, lots of the ART, that I see out there. So this was perfect for me,I cheated, the paper was already done,now all I had to do is add my texture. That is why I love to work with chipboard,I can play & move it around &get my texture

Here are some closeups of detail…..
I loved the 7 Dots paper,as was,so all I did ,was apply clear crackle,where Finn already had used the crackle.Using white Corrugate Paper,I played with color,then a coat of clear crackle & glitter,as shown in the 2nd last layer on the bottom. I also applied some white sand texture paste & more glitter……
For the tile I used winter pine TA,& Wild plum color wash,I then applied a coat of crackle. Once the crackle dried, I dry brushed on some gesso, to bring out the cracks & to tone down the color. I also applied white sand texture paste & glitter to the top. I applied clear crackle to the fence,wagon wheels, decorative frame& branches. Once the crackle dried I brushed on some cinder TA,removed the excess,let dry,then dry painted on some gesso. I also applied, the white sand texture paste, onto the top of the wagon wheel,decorative frame & branches….
I used Cinder TA,on the chicken wire,glued it down,then glued some crystal glass beads into the chicken wire. I used Cinder TA on the stem of the wattle blossom. I stained the blossoms with wild plum,then a coat of clear varnish,sprinkled on glitter & micro beads while the varnish was wet. Once that had dried I applied white sand texture & glitter….
The plum flowers are prima & the green flowers under are Dusty Attic,I glued the 2 together to make them look like the cabbages,then applied white sand texture ….I used white crackle, on the snow flakes….
On the lower photo,I dipped burlap string into gesso that is in the tags…& painted the burlap with gesso,that is behind the photo….
