I have today a series of cards again! This time autumn! The fall just about will come! Elegant, Indian summer! Also I will open for you a secret, any my project doesn't do without this wonderful chipboard!
Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my August inspirational post.
This month I decided to make an art Steampunk page as my main inspiration and I think that Scrapmatts products are just perfect for all Steampunk lovers as myself.
So here is the page made over A4 thick cardstock covered with gesso and then painted, stamped, stencilled and embellished with Scrapmatts chipboards and some hand made embellishments I made with Makin's Clay, molds and Makin's Clay tools.
As you can see I used Scrapmatts Retro Squares stencil with texture paste over the page and then misted it with a mix of Tattered Angels mists.
Stamps used are from Andy Skinner's line of Steampunk stamps and mostly stamped directly over the page (some were stamped over tissue and glued then with Gel Medium).
I also used the second Scrapmatts String Beads stencil here and you can see the lines in the middle of the page.
A for chipboards the Steampunk frame was added to frame the funky doll. The head , the hair embellishment and the hair are made with Makin's Clay, but the body is totally Scrapmatts and was made with numerous chipboards that are all listed below.
Here you can see the stencilled part and the same Retro Squares 02 chipboard added over the stencilled image.
For the final touch I added a layer of Crackle glaze and some Scrapmatts words.
And now for my second project- a Mixed Media card made with Scrapmatts very same stencil used for the Steampunk page and the very same chipboard, but now painted with another color to fit the card.I used Gelly Plate to make the background and added Scrapmatts chipboard sentiment on the bottom of my card.
And as I still had more mono prints to use, I added a second card.
Same style card was made and the different sentiment was added on the bottom of it.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you like my cards.Have a beautiful day and see you soon :)
I just love scrapping my daughter’s cheeky photos together…they make creating much more inspirational & fun! The title is from the versatile Burnt Cream Scrap Words set, & the Butterflies chipboards are painted white to suit the page.
I’ve used the beautiful Scrapmatts Leaf Sprays stencil as a resist pattern which really stands out from the vibrant colors. Of course, I had to add more stenciling on this page. Did you spot the Circles, Strings, & Paint Drips?
Let's have a look at next layout:
My daughter from when she started sleeping in her cot, wouldn’t sleep without her teddy bear. I say thank goodness for the teddy bear, she sleeps well most nights. Now that she’s nearly 6, she still has it in her bedroom.
Scrapmatts Chipboards: Ornate Frame (CB6011); Hearts Frame (CB4005); Butterflies (CB1045); Stars String Circles (CB5138); Black Scrap Words (CB1237)
I’ve embossed the frame white, & I love how it frames her sweet picture. They look so peaceful & heavenly when they’re asleep, quiet & behaved like that, eh? :) I’ve inked the butterflies & stars chipboards white to match the white shades of the frame & the layout. I’ve also applied some good ol’ texture paste through Cobblestones Stencil, & some color through the Circles Stencil.
I had fun creating these layouts, playing with awesome Scrapmatts stencils & chipboards. I can't wait to see what new designs Sofie & Andrew come up with. Check out the variety of Scrapmatts goodies here.
Thanks for stopping by, & stay tuned for more inspiration from the team :).
Good Morning, how are you all? Hopefully scrapping or creating something, its always a great day when you get to do what you love right?
I am here today sharing with you some Scrapmatts goodies..... I recently helped with Scrapmatts at the Arts and Craft Fair that was being held here over in the West, it was a great two days ( it went for 3), seen all and I do mean ALL of the products that the company creates and even getting to play with them with a few demos over the weekend. It really was great catching up with Sofia and Andrew and fellow DT member Rhonda.
To start off for those who came and said hi on Sunday you would have seen me creating an art journal page using a lot of Scrapmatts Stencils of my background and layers..... This is the finished product..... See told you I used a few stencils........
