 Since child hood, I was passionate towards crafts.. but one day I was searching something on YouTube and I came across Craftycrappers Youtube Channel,
Craftyscrappers Channel has so many craft videos,which were so inspiring and educational.
Each video has a new idea, a different technique to showcase.
Not to mention, their products. Craftyscrappers is the first company here in India to bring so many versatile crafting products at a pocket friendly cost,
whether they are clear craft stamps, mixed media tools such as shimmer pastes,stencils or shimeer sprays… or scrabooking supplies such as Pattern papers,Die cuts, dies,ribbons, flowers,charms..ets.. they have it all.. and that too are priced economically, keeping in mind crafters need and their capacity to afford those products to create stunning creations.
I have been so impressed by Craftyscrappers products and the videos, that from last three months , I have taken crafts seriously… Not only that, they have a superb Design team, who are so talented in their fields… and their Craft videos/tutorials are so very inspirational and motivating… that has motivated me to come up with new crafty ideas and give life to my creations.
 

“Thank you Craftycrappers team”
for being the best,
for bringing crafting to a whole new level, for providing versatile and beautiful products in India at an economical rate so that all crafters, whether beginner or experienced can afford and enjoy them with out any hindrance and most importantly, For showcasing crafters handwork and talent with the world.

As a part of the Guest Design team I have made an easel card for you all as an inspiration using Craftyscrappers new release  “you are so enchanting”.

ST-BD-20[you r so enchanting].jpg
This Stamp set is so mesmerizing and unique and is designed by Pritusha Banerjee,
who is an established graphic artist in India.
Craftyscrappers has given a new meaning to the fairytales themes and these designs are the first ones to surface in india, which makes me so very proud.
All of craftyscrappers stamp sets are available in 3 different sizes, keeping in mind the crafters need.
They are available in 4x4inch stamp set size which is perfect for making your own handmade embellishments for craft projects.
The 5x5inch stamp set size is the medium size, used in making A3 cards,envelopes and layouts, and its is the size that i have used to create my make today.
And the 6x6inch Stamp set size, which is the jumbo stamp set size,used for making bigger projects like,using in  8 or 12inch scrapbook layouts,mixed media etc.

Along with Craftyscrappers versatile stencil, ” Victorian”.

cc-stnl-07.jpg
Which is a beautiful and high quality stencil,for you to create amazing backgrounds
or highlights on your projects.
These stencils comes in a trendy package and are 6.5×6.5INCH in size,

which makes it easier for you to twist and turn the stencils according to your work surface.You can also customised the size of your stencils with Craftyscrappers, they have a wide range of  mini stencils too…
And the most incredible thing about them is, they are pocket friendly.

Check them out at the store: Craftyscrappers store

And with the stencil, i have also used Craftyscrappers Super shimmery and one of a kind product, “Shimmer pastes”. The shimmer paste that i have used in my creation is called, “Shimmer paste-Splash”
SPLASH.jpg
These Add a fabulous layer of shimmer and shine to any craft project , and you can
use stencils with these shimmer paste and create beautiful sparkling details and add the touch of beauty to any card, scrapbook or mixed media.

They are also available in 16 amazing coloring sets, here’s a glimpse of that:

SET.jpg
And last but not the least, to add the special touch of shimmer to my creation, i have also added Craftyscrappers Shimmer tape,” Rainbow
RAINBOW-06.jpg

These shimmer tapes are used for packaging, crafts, and decor!
​They have a nice feel and are very easy to use.
These shimmer  tapes can be re-used since they are removable and re-positionable.

So this is my completed EASEL CARD:

avni1.jpg

 

An easel card is another fun alternative to the ordinary fold.
It has a built-in easel, so artwork stands beautifully on display. As an added bonus, the card lies flat for ease in mailing.

Here i will show you how you can create a Square easel card, but keeping the measurements in mind, you can create an easel card in any size that you like.

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • Cut one piece of card stock to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and one piece to 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. The larger piece will serve as the base and the square will become the front.
  • The basic formula for an easel card is to divide the length of your base by two and score.  (This is the mid-point.) Next, divide one side by two and score. (This is the three-quarters point.)
    Place 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ block of card stock on scoring table horizontally. Score at 4 1/4″ and 6 3/8″.
  • Fold along score lines creating a mountain fold at the 4 1/4″ mark and a valley fold at the 6 3/8″ mark.
  • Flip card stock so that the largest panel is face down and the two smaller panels create a mountain fold. Apply double-sided tape to the outer panel.
  • Turn card stock so that adhesive is at the top and remove liner from tape. Adhere 4 1/4″ square to top of base, aligning top and side edges.
  • Decorate as desired. (I used “you are so enchanting” stamp set and Stencil, ” Victorian” with the “Shimmer paste-Splash” for this.
    Be sure to include a border strip,paper embellishment or Shimmer tape like i have used here, which is Craftyscrappers Shimmer tape,” Rainbow” near the bottom edge of the base (i.e. the rainbow strip as can be seen above) as this will help hold the card open for display. The deeper you adhere the “stop,” the taller your card will stand.
  • Then i created the origami air balloon using some scrap paper from my stash.
  • Colored and fuzzy cut the stamp set, you are so enchanting’ and adhered it to the balloon carriage.
  • Added some mulberry flowers from the store, and the card was ready.

 

Sharing some Close-ups:

I would also like to share some other variations/measurements to make Easel cards:

 

#1) MEASUREMENTS TO CREATE A STANDARD A2 SIZE VERTICAL EASEL CARD

  • Cut card stock pieces to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • Score 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece at 5 1/2″ and 8 1/4″. Fold along score lines.
  • Adhere double-sided tape to top folded edge. Remove liner from tape.
  • Adhere front panel to base, aligning top and side edges. Pull forward to stand in easel position.

 

 

Possible image 1

 

 #2)MEASUREMENTS TO CREATE A ROUND EASEL CARD

  • Cut one piece of card stock a little wider than your circle die and a little longer than twice the width. This will serve as the base. Score down the center and fold. Cut a second piece of card stock slightly larger than your circle die. This will become the front.
  • Using removable tape, adhere circle die to folded card stock with die edge just above the fold line. Die-cut with die-cutting machine to create folded circle base. Die-cut front circle shape as well.
  • Open folded circle. Fold top circle in half in opposite direction from center fold line. Apply double-sided tape to top half above fold.
  • Remove tape liner and adhere front circle, aligning all edges. Pull top circle forward into easel shape.

Now onto my May inspiration now…

Today I have made a tag and a card using Lotus stamp set,designed by Our talented Design team-mate Nandini Karmarkar, (Product code: ST-FLW-09)
These stamps are so versatile that one will feel like playing so much with them.
They truly have endless possibilities.

 
Let me first show you my tag.
anu1a

For the tag,on the main cardstock I have applied Inka gold first and let it dry.After gold color dried I have used, The Arrow stencil, (Product code: CS-STNL-06) by Craftyscrappers and used inka gold black color to give background effect.
For the lotus,I have used BUCKRAM,(Buckram is a stiff cloth, made of cotton, and still occasionally linen, which is used to cover and protect books. Buckram can also be used to stiffen clothes.)Now this material was complete new and a successful experiment.I have used memento inks to stamp images on Buckram.These high quality stamps perfectly stands out on any surface.Lastly i adorned the tag with some leaf and ribbons from my stash.

Now let me show you my card,

 

anu2a
For this card ,I have again used same lotus cardstock.
I stamped them on white cardstock and heat embossed with gold powder.Then I have colored them with Zig colors and fussy cut them.The sentiment is from same stamp set which again i have heat embossed with gold powder on white cardstock.
I have used Kraft cardstock as base to stick my fussy cuts.
 
Below is list of supplies I have used:

 

 

 

 

I simply enjoyed doing both the card and the tag.The stamps from Craftyscrappers give crisp and clear images.Hoping to do many more such posts in future.
Happy Crafting!!
