A Mini Shadow Box with FSJ Scenic Tray

I have a quick tutorial to share!  A mini shadow box! I made these for my Kinder kids in my Sunday School Class.   The kids promoted to 1st grade class, so I made these for them as a gift.  I absolutely love this Baby’s Special Day Stamp Set.  I can use it for many projects, from baptism card to Easter, Baby Shower, Encouragement, Birthday ..etc !  The best part is that comes with a set of matching dies! Fussy Cut FREE!

Supply List:  Sun Rays Die / Cloud Dreams Die / Barn Wall Embossing Folder / Garden Fence Die / Whip Cream Cardstock / Black Licorice Cardstock / Baby’s Special Day Bundle / Cranberry Bliss Cardstock (or any red color cardstock) /Confectionary Days Panpastels (Yello shade)/ Journey Color Splash/ Journey Glaze / Journey Sparkle Dust / Form Square / Black Licorice Ink Pad/ Oatmeal Cookie Ink Pad / Oatmeal Cookie CardstockSpecial Day Tags Die Set / Craft GlueVellum / Boho Trim / Special Day Organza  

Sparkly Steps:

  1. Trim a 3 1/2″ x 5″ whip cream cardstock. You may need to trim a hair-line to get it fit.  Just check if it would fit inside the tray before adhere anything to it.
  2. Die cut 1 smallest cloud with whip cream cardstock.
  3. Die cut 2 second smallest cloud (one with whip cream cardstock, one with vellum). (Optional step – add blue panpastel over cloud ☁️ and over the background)
  4. Use Sun Rays die to create a stencil.  Apply yellow shade panpastel over the stencil to create sun rays.  Then use form square to adhere the clouds.
  5. Die cut the Carden Fence Die with Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock, then embossed it with Barn Wall Embossing Folder.  (Optional step – Apply oatmeal cookie ink pad to the embossed line to add color). Use foam square to attach it.
  6. Die cut the small hexagon from Special Day Tags Die set. Stamp it with “You are a child of god…..” with either black ink or clear pigment ink (heat emboss it with black embossing powder).  Lightly ink the edges with Oatmeal Cookie Ink pad. Use double-layered foam squares to attach it on top of the fence.  (Optional step- use cement tile stencil with yellow panpastel to create background)
  7. Stamp dove and cross from Baby’s Special Day Stamp, color with water splash color pencil and die cut it.  Also die cut 1 extra dove and 1 extra cross.  Adhere it to the stamped-colored dove and cross to thicken them up.  I stack 4 mini foam squares behind the dove’s wing, 3 behind the belly.  3 large foam squares behind the cross.   (Dove Color – 0045, 0046, 005, 0019, 0015) (Cross Color – 0023, 0027, 0022 )
  8. Bible – trim a  7/8″ x 1 3/8″ strip from black cardstock. Score a line at 5/8″ (pretty much count 5 score-line); skip one score-line for your 2nd score line; and count 5 more score-line is where to trim it.   Sorry, I know it is confusing. Think about 5-1-5 and trim it.
  9. Then fold it up, put foam square in between and use craft glue to adhere the red book-mark (a mini strip from any red cardstock). Color the Bible edge with gold marker, write “Bible” and draw a cross on the cover. I use 4 foam squares to pop it up.
  10. To hang, add journey twine (I used natural color).  Also add you choice of ribbon through the loop. I used Boho Trim and Special Day Organza.

Hope you all like it and will give it a try! I have 2 more cards to share using the Baby’s Special Day:

FSJ Creative Team Blog Hop – Mixed Media with DIY Hoop

Welcome to MY VERY VERY FIRST Blog Hop! Yup, my first blog hop as a member of the FSJ Creative Team! Woo hoo!   The Team were told to share a project that would represent our own unique style.  Did you hop over from the amazing talented lady “Carrie Rhoades ? or maybe from FSJ Blog ? Anyhow, I am sure these blogs will keep your weekend very crafty-busy!  

It took me sometime to brain storm a project to share.  I know I love scrapbooking with lot of embellishments and I love to add on some fun elements to my layout.  I decided to pick one of the new product from the 2018-2019 FSJ Inspiration Book and Catalog, “The DIY HOOP“.  A pack of DIY Hoop comes with 6, for less than $6!! NO WAY! Best Deal Ever!

Here is the project I would love to share!

I have broken this project into 2 levels, “Intro” and “Intermediate”, base on your comfort level plus the supplies you have at home.

Mixed Media Project Supply

Intro Level 1 – One Single DIY Hoop

FSJ Mixed Media DIY Hoop

Steps:

FSJ DIY Hoop FSJ DIY Hoop

FSJ Mix Media with DIY Hoop

  1. Use the largest DIY hoop and trace it on the canvas, fussy cut it out. Make sure trace the outside circle of the hoop, not the inside so you have room to adhere the canvas to the hoop.
  2. Grab some FSJ  Modeling Paste and mix it with the Rose Gold PanPastel powder. Add powder in a small portion, mix well and add little by little for darker color.
  3. Use FSJ Spatula and spread the mixed modeling paste over Flower Power Stencils.
  4. Immediately clean your stencils with baby wipe or wet towel while waiting the paste to be dried.
  5. Once dried, adhere the canvas to the DIY Hoop using FSJ Craft Glue (Must Have!!)
  6. Die cut a small leaf and smaller flower from “Blooming Details Die Sets” and “Bloom Cluster Die” using vellum.  Color the small flower with Rose Gold PanPastel.  Adhere them to the DIY Hoop.
  7. Add 2 flowers from Vintage Burst and one peaches and cream Meadow flower with the Craft Glue.
  8. Then finish it up with a Natural Twine multi-loop bow.
  9. Add Sentiment and/or wallet size photo.

Not bad right?  Let’s try Level 2 ! Actually,  you have done half of the work already!

Intermediate Level 2 – 3 Hoops on Canvas

  1. Layout everything on canvas to get a draft design; take a picture with your cellphone so you can remember where things go.
  2. Spread modeling paste randomly over the canvas with Ring Stacks Stencil; let it dry and go clean the stencil!! You don’t want the paste to dry on your stencil! It is easier to clean when it is still wet!
  3. Mix Rose Gold PanPastel (small portion at a time) with Whip Cream Acrylic paint, add some water to dilute the paint to achieve water-color look.img_7408  img_7409img_7413  img_7414
  4. Start painting over canvas, recommend to practice where it will be covered by the large DIY hoops.
  5. Then add Oatmeal cookies Acrylic Paint (also add water to dilute the paint).
  6. Flick both diluted oatmeal and rose gold paint brush to add droplet over the layout.
  7. I also used Gold Silk for one last touch. Let it all dry, or use heat gun to dry it.img_7415 img_7417
  8. Stamp the Ballerina image from Dance Life Stamp Set with clear pigment ink pad and heat set it with Black Embossing powder.
  9. I stamped a bow from Build-A-Wreath Stamp set on vellum and heat set with white embossing powder, fussy cut it out. I did the same to the flowers, but with white embossing powder over oatmeal cookies cardstock.  I die cuts 4 leaves from Bloom Details Die, 2 colored with the diluted paints.  I heat set 2 of them with copper embossing powder.                                                                   img_7422  img_7418
  10. Then glue all the hoops and embellishment on the layout. It can be any kind of embellishment you have at home.  There is no right or wrong.  The key is color coordination.  You can add less or more depending on your preference.  Once everything is dry, it is ALL DONE!!!!
