Re puposing craft supplies to make Mixed Media Cards

Mixed Media Cards
Do you re purpose your supplies for other things? I do! I wanted to create a project using supplies that I already on hand - Mixed Media Cards popped into my brain and there it stayed. I am not a huge mixed media crafter, but I do like to play around with it from time to time.  Almost all of the supplies are ones that I use on my scrapbook pages!

Each card is 10" tall by 4" wide and they are created using the Bo Bunny Genevieve paper line. I used stamps and stencils from Wendy Vecchi, crackle medium, dies, Gelatos, matboard, inks, sprays, and of course Stickles. Because no project is ever complete without Stickles!

Mixed Media Cards Gold Flowers

For this card I stamped my sentiment (from Wendy Vecchi) onto patterned paper and then used a Little B punch on it. For the flowers I used a new product I saw at CHA and was WOWED by it!!

Mixed Media Cards Nuvo
This product comes in Gold, Silver, and Copper and is amazingly easy to use. You apply Zig glue to your embellishment and let it air dry, then rub the Gilding Flakes onto the glue. BAM! You now have sparkle galore. I also used, Wendy Vecchi Texture paste, Petaloo flowers, StazOn ink, and Stickles
Mixed Media Cards Yellow Flowers


For this card I made the flowers by hand using a Sizzix die and inked them with VersaMagic Dew Drop ink. Notice the Maya Road centers - they are amazing! (you have to sing that last part). The background is made using Wendy Vecchi stamps and stencil. This time I inked directly onto the card through the stencil using VersaMagic Dew Drop in Hint of Pesto. Because this ink is opaque it will cover the pattern on the paper! I also used Sizzix Matboard to cut the silver swirl, DecoArt Crackle Paint and Metallic Lustere in Silver on the matboard, Dylusions spray ink in Lemon for the ribbon, Signo white pen to add accents

For the last card I made another flower using cardstock and punches, highlighting the edges with Copper Stickles. The small flowers tucked behind are from Petaloo.

Mixed Media Cards Stenciled LEaves
These leaves are made using the same stencil I used on card two, this time I used texture paste through the stencil and let it dry. I then colored it with Gelatos (Pistachio). I also used Wendy Vecchi stamps, Distress Stain, the butterfly is a die from Eileen Hull, chipboard from Blue Fern Studios
How can you repurpose supplies you already have to create something new? I would love to see - please leave me a link in the comments!
