ATC cards "Vintage Winter" from Julia MITRA.

Hello, friends!

Its Julia here and my wonderful vintage inspiration with two winter ATC cards.

First - "Winter", Second - "Fairy Tale".

The base for the cards is triangular, the classic size is 6.3*8.9 cm, but with the help of a chipboard and lace, I increased the composition and it turned out very beautiful vintage "medallions".

I covered the cards in the base with fabric, and then added lace... lots of lace!))
I decorated ATC with a chipboard, and then applied the primer and metallic paints.

I used the amazing flowers from IAR, of course!

In the layers and details, you can see the cutting, as well as rhinestones, pearls and acrylic drops.

The second card is warmer, more dreamy...

Here I used warmer shades of metallic and "old" golden glitter.

Another interesting element is the metal charm at the bottom of the cards; this makes me think about  vintage brooches))

Here is such a charming vintage couple turned out, with handmade fabric background, metallic paints and flowers. I'm in love with vintage this winter!

Thanks for watching!
With love, Julia)

A Note From The Heart

 Happy Saturday everyone! It's DT Rosie here today sharing a card featuring the amazing paper flowers from I Am Roses. I decided to go with a gold theme this time around using an awesome die from Jaded Blossom called Fancy Hearts Die. Isn't it gorgeous? 

The decorative paper is from My Mind's Eye Yes Please 6x6 Paper Pad. I paired it with some gold cardstock. When I used the Fancy Hearts Die on the gold paper, all the pieces stayed attached and I liked it that way. I carefully flipped it over, added a thin layer of glue over the back and adhered a solid black heart to the back so the pieces didn't fall out.

I heat embossed the sentiment using gold embossing powder and then matted it to the gold paper. The sentiment is raised on foam tape for extra dimension. The large rose from I Am Roses is ZR77-S&G Paper Roses. The smaller roses came in a set, but I could not find it in the store. The long leaves are actually Tulip leaves that I colored gold with a paint marker.

Remember, you have until FEBRUARY 8th to link up your project to our current ANYTHING GOES Challenge. Be sure to use a minimum of 3 I Am Roses products on your card to qualify for a prize. I can't wait to see what you make!

Home decor "Winter morning in Village" from Julia MITRA.

Happy New Year, friends!!
Its Julia here and I want to start this new creative year with a big winter project called "Winter morning in Village".
Let's be inspired by the wonderful moments of New Year's morning together!

I was very inspired by the views of the winter village, snow and frost fir trees and motifs from Russian fairy tales. In our culture, the main New Year's characters are "Ded Moroz" and his granddaughter "Snegourochka". On New Year's Eve, they go to villages and cities, "cover" forests and fields with snow, and then go into houses and leave gifts under the Christmas tree while people sleep.

As a basis for the project, I took corrugated cardboard, from which I cut out a large "christmas" star - its diameter is up to 30 cm.
If you don't pay attention to the stand for the star, my project is like a winter lay-out))

For the decoration of the star, I used a lot of cutting (Lady Bug, Sizzix by Tim holtz, Molly Craft), chipboard, berries, cotton lace, wool decor, woven raffia, die-cuts and, of course, flowers. Lots of flowers!

In this project you can find a lots of wonderful IAR flowers:

Other flowers is handmade; I made white poinsettias with blue and gold glitter out of foam.

The basis of this decor I covered with sprays and paints a little, added primer and paste with sand.

I made the die-cuts from white and kraft cardboard, as well as from thick white and blue vellum.

Beautiful houses-huts are painted with sprays and metallic paint, "Copper" the color.

Cute sign with the inscription - Happy New Year!

I liked to create such a large and detailed composition, which has a beautiful winter story.

Thanks for watching!
And have a good holidays!))
With love, Julia)
