Friday Focus on Laser Cut Wood and Chipboard

Happy Friday! Suzz here, bringing you the next Friday Focus. The Friday Focus for the next two weeks is laser cut wood and chipboard embellishments from Southern Ridge Trading Company and Kaisercraft.

These items will be an extra 15% off our regularly discounted prices (total of 35% off list) through March 3rd. You can find all these bargains under our Friday Focus tab at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

There were so many wonderful choices in the store that I had a hard time picking and ended up creating two different projects.

My first project was inspired by the Southern Ridge Trading Company laser cut clock.


I saw this lovely clock face and knew it would look beautiful on the mini clipboard. I painted it with gesso and then used the gold paint as my starting point for the color base.


The clipboard  and clock were painted with a coat of white gesso paint. After the paint dried the clock was painted with tarnished brass paint.

The Wendy Vecchi squares stencil was used to apply crackle embossing paste over the background.   While the embossing paste was wet a layer of  tarnished brass and raspberry distress stains were sprayed and mixed with water over the surface.

The dragonfly was die cut from kraft paper and a piece of chipboard. The dragonflies were painted with white gesso. The kraft dragonfly was partially painted leaving sections of the kraft showing which got a smear of gold paint. The chipboard dragonfly was embossed with the embossing folder and pink distress spray was sprayed over the background.

The images and sentiments were stamped on tissue paper using archival ink and then applied to the background after it was dry using collage medium.


The metal on the clipboard received a coat of metallic paint along with stamped images using StazOn ink.

The dragonflies used a bit of seam binding died with the pink spray and a gold painted heart for a focal point.

The second project is a  card using the Kaisercraft wood laser cut flowers.


The flowers were painted with ranger paint. After the paint dried, embossing paste was applied using the  mini layering stencil to create a polka dot effect.


The background has crackle embossing paste using the Wendy Vecchi stencil with a stamped image overlay.  The distress stain was spritzed over the surface after the embossing paste was dry and before the image was stamped.

You can find these Friday Focus products as well as all the other products at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!
