Christmas in July-By Leanne Nankervis

Hi Everyone!

Leanne back to share a winter layout and card with you today, using the wonderful Memory Maze chipboard products. Over the last school holidays we took a trip to Ballarat, to see the Christmas Wonderland lights at Sovereign Hill. It was truly a beautiful experience with fake snow falls, and all the buildings lit up in colourful lights.
July layout

For my layout I used the new Christmas in July set from Memory Maze, I embossed the Title, lights and the swirly tree in a frosted silver embossing powder. I then used heavy gesso to add to the title and tree to look like fallen snow. I then sprinkled some Diamond Dust on top of the Gesso paint, for some added sparkle the Christmas lights I added some clear rhinestones to look like light bulbs.

Frame it Up with Tracey Henly

I have used 49 and Market papers and 3D stickers and to keep the 3D elements happening I have used a chipboard frame to highlight the photo.
We have heaps of beautiful frames to choose from check them out here.

I have used one of our many titles and a arrow border. These are all painted with Prima Sparks glitter paint. I have used petaloo flowers to finish it off.

Thanks for looking

Steampunk ATC's, by Tania

Hello everyone. It's my pleasure to be back again with another post for you, using some cool chipboard cogs and more!! I made some ATC's this time, and I really had fun with these!!!

I used Distress Oxide inks to make my backgrounds. Love these!!! I started with an A5 piece of white card, and used the cogs stencil to add some white Distress Paint to the white card. (The white Distress Paint acts as a resist for my next layer.) I applied Vintage Photo & Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink, with a blending tool and sprayed with water several times for the Oxidization effect.)

You can see the 1st layer of white paint has resisted the brown inks.

After several layers of Distress Oxide inks in a few different colours, I used the Wire stencil in reverse, (Spray the stencil and stamp it onto the card, instead of spraying through it), with some Black Dylusions Spray ink for an added layer of interest.
I cut down my background sheet into 3 pieces. The official size of an ATC, (Artist Trading Card), is 2.5" x 3.5", so I cut 3 pieces of black card stock, this size to use as a mat for each ATC. 

Before attatching to the mats, I did some stamping onto the cards, with some arrows, cogs and clocks I had in my stash. Using a paint brush and watered down , white paint, I then flicked some paint drops on there too!

The next step was to colour all my chipboard pieces. For this I used black Distress Paint for the Bowler hat, moustache & cogs chipboard.

And Metallic Distress Stains for the remaining cogs from the bike, cogs, clock and moustache set.

Then it was just a matter of arranging everything in clusters on each card, adding some metal embellishments, thread and black gemstones. 
To make them complete, I found some cool quote stamps and embossed them in black, on white card!!!

Here's some more pics, I hope I've inspired you to give these little ATC's a go. The possibilities are endless with the amazing array of chipboard pieces from Memory Maze!!!

Everything About You- by Leanne Nankervis


Hi Everyone!

Leanne back here to share another project with you today, using Memory Maze Chipboard products.

Everything About You!

Today I am sharing a bright colourful page, I am using another one of my photo's of street art in Melbourne, when we visited not long ago. I created a background using dylusion paints they were the perfect colour, to go with the photo. I used some stencilling and background stamping also to create the background. And of course along with Memory Maze chipboard, I really love the pick up sticks and the criss cross hearts.

I used the Memory Maze pick up sticks, which I painted in dylusion paints the same colour's as my background. I then used a background stamp, using a white ink to stamp over the pick up sticks.
I used the Memory Maze chipboard title Everything About, which I embossed with Stampendeous black detail embossing powder, I then dipped the bottom of the title in Lindys stamp gang, embossing powders. The you is from

The Criss Cross hearts I painted with yellow dylusion paints, I then embossed half of the Criss cross heart with gold glitter from Finnabairs Art ingredients. And then added some blue cobalt beads also from Finnabair.
The little hearts were also embossed in gold glitter.

{sibling love}

Hi there Kylie 
here to share with you another of my creations........

I love the brightness and fun of this layout I created using a photo of my nephew and nieces, the background paper is Heidi Swapp Color Magic which works amazingly with colourful inks and paints.

To get the layout started I have used assorted acrylic paints to randomly create a colourful background. I have added many embellishments to add dimension including thread, sequins, tulle, a hand created doillie, a fabric flower, I have also used really cool embellishment which includes a Metal Button and chain and cute hair clip. 

There are many elements to this layout to make it really pop I have used Memory Maze Chipboard Circles.

Circles on circles 110 x 180 min buy 3 Memory Maze

I painted 3 different circle pieces with Black Acrylic paint - once dry I placed the Chipboard pieces onto my layout.

Once painted black the chipboard circles really pop....

I hope you love this layout as much as I do .....

Pretty Cards

For this post I have created a selection of cards using the micro bicycle, leaves and wire butterflies chipboard. I have inked most of the chipboard used with Jumbo Java Versa Magic Chalk Ink. This works great on the chipboard. 

Thank you Jan 💝🤗
