This is the first time I’ve used foils in my cards and I really love the outcome…..
Craftyscrappers shiny transfer foils are professional grade and are proudly made in INDIA, and these super glitzy foils , add Stunning Sparkle and shine to your craft projects.
What stopped me till now was the investment in laminator machine for foiling….
But these fun foils are really fun to work with.
You don’t need any fancy tools for this.. and in my Video tutorial i will show how these can be easily used without a lamination machine and also work like a charm with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils to your craft surfaces.

But before i reveal the Winner prize,
let me share with you a quick and easy Festive Card tutorial.
I made these easy festive cards for my family and friends on Diwali.

1.jpg

Diwali, or Deepawali,  is a Sanskrit word meaning “rows of lighted lamps,” is a Hindu-originated festival celebrated in India and worldwide.
During the five-day celebration  which is also known as the “festival of lights”,clay lamps known as diyas are lit to signify the destruction, through knowledge of all negative qualities — be it violence, anger, jealousy, greed, fear or suffering… in other words, the victory of good over evil.
As per tradition, Diwali is celebrated with grand splendor, where every home is lit with diyas, leaving no room for darkness to enter, sweet and savory snacks are prepared throughout the day, every doorstep is decorated with rangoli to welcome guests with great honor, one fashions new clothing to thank Goddess Lakshmi for providing prosperity and good fortune, when the sun sets, firecrackers light up the streets… and it is the perfect time, for sending some love as gifts to your family and friends.

Moving on to the Tutorial, On how i created these…

 

step1

I took the Craftyscrappers Premiun cardstock (white) and Die cut 10 pieces, using Madrasbazaar stitched rectangle die and created my first layer for my cards.

 

WHITE finalBLENDING.jpg
(I later on ended up making 30-50 card bases.. for a total of 50cards 🙂 )

2.jpg

 

step2

 

Then i took Fried brick, spiced marmalade and wild honey distressing inks and started blending them together to create a background.

3.jpg

step3

Once the inks were nicely blended, I sprayed mist over the distress background that allowed the ink to wick and spread out, traveling across the paper  and created a beautiful effect.Then i let it dry over night.  
(Many thanks to Niharika Gupta for teaching me this technique!)

This is how the backgrounds looks after they are  dried:

4.jpg

 

 

step4

 

Next, i started working on the focal point of the card.
For this, i decided to use the beautiful image from Craftyscrappers festival (diwali) stamp set, “Blasting Diwali” designed by Aastha Jain.

ST-FEST-28[blasting diwali]cover.jpg


It has some really nice sentiments and images that is just perfect for the occasion!
I stamped a bunch of the beautiful diya from the stamp set, using Staz-on Black ink.

5.jpg

 

step5

 

After i stamped the diyas with the staz-on black ink, i started stamping them again using Craftyscrappers Fun foil glue, (You can use any glue for this technique, but do make sure that the glue is sticky and transparent once it dries.)
so that i could use Craftyscrappers Fun-foils without any lamination machine.
You may check my video tutorial here, where i have demonstrated an easy way of foiling using the bigshot machine, if you do not have a laminator machine or a heat tool.

6.jpg


(Sorry about the poor quality of the pic!!!
It was very difficult to capture the shine on the foils due to the lights reflection!)

 

Possible image 1

 

I used Craftyscrappers Fun foils-glitzy gold, to create these diyas and fussy cut them.


GLITZY GOLD.png

This is how they look, once foils applied:

7.jpg

 

step6

 

After foiling the Diya’s i started coloring them using Smart color watercolor markers and water brush.I pastel shaded for the diya’s so that i could create a contrast with the background.


8.jpg

This is how they look, Up close:

9.jpg

I added the Double sided dimensional adhesive from oddy and kept it aside.

10.jpg

 

step7

 

Next i started working on the inside sentiment, for the card.
For this, i decided to go with the beautiful sentiment from Craftyscrappers stamp set, “Crackling Diwali”, designed by Pritusha Banerjee. this stamp set too has many sentiments and images that are ideal for creating Diwali cards.

ST-FEST-19[crackling deepawali].jpg

 

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Craftyscrappers Premium white cardstock and repeated the process, that i did with the Diyas.

For Foiling the inside sentiments, i used Craftyscrappers fun foil- Stormy Violet.

 

STORMY VIOLET.png


(Stamping with staz-0n black ink, then stamping with the Craftyscrappers Fun foil glue, placing a piece of foil- shiny side up and running it through the bigshot machine.)

This is how the inside sentiments looks once Fun foils applied:

 

11.jpg

 

step8

 

I also foiled some Diwali wishes for the front of my card, the same way i did before.
I used Craftyscrappers Vellum sheets  for this and used Craftyscrappers Fun-foils-Blushing salmon for this.

BLUSHING SALMON.png

I used Craftyscrappers Vellum sheets and stamped the diwali sentiment and foiled them.

 

vellum.jpg

This is how they look, once foils applied:

12.jpg

 

step9

 

Next, i started assembling everything to create my Diwali cards.
First i adhered the distressed background to an A2 Card size.

13.jpg

 

step10

 

Then added the foiled and colored diyas and front sentiment on top of it using some double sided dimensional tape.

14.jpg

 

and lastly added the foiled sentiment on the front and the diwali wishes on the inside of the cards.
I wanted to keep the card simple so embellished them using some coordinating shaker elements from Madrasbazaar.
And thus finished with the Diwali cards.
