Hi folks,
This is Anjali ,creative designer at @craftyscrappers

We are having a very festive and colorful challenge going on for Rakshabandhan.
As my inspiration for our this month challenge and releases i have created  mixedmedia tag cards and shagun envelopes using the versatile supplies from Craftyscrappers.

My inspirations focuses on the spotlight products:

STAMP SET- NO#1:BRO & SIS

st-fest-51no-1bro&sis].jpg

 

 

and 2-IN-1DESIGN 3D STENCIL-BOX PATTERN

 

cs-stnl-362IN1-BOX PATTERNS].jpg

 

 

PROJECT#1 :GORGEOUS MIXED MEDIA TAG CARDS

 

sd.jpg

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  1. I took craftyscrappers Premium white cardstock both for my stamping and card bases.
  2. Then stenciled using craftyscrappers 2-IN-1 3D DESIGN-BOX PATTERN stencil using shimmer sprays-dancing peacock, sweet sunshine,ocean waves and sweet pumkin.
  3. Stamped the beautiful brother image from the stamp set-NO#1:BRO & SIS.
  4. Colored them using zig markers.
  5. Stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in black archival ink.
  6. Added some flowers as decorations and finished the tag cards.

 

I think it’s a very good idea to gift it as shagun envelope apart from giving Rakshabandhan cards.

 

PROJECT#2 :BEAUTIFUL MONEY (shagun) ENVELOPE

 

unnamed_2.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

 

  1. I have mixed spicy walnut shimmer spray with my texture paste for stenciling to give a hint of colour.
  2. I have done simple layering of chipboard, cheesecloth, twine and then the stamped sentiment and image.
  3. I coloured the beautiful stamped image from the stamp set- NO#1:BRO & SIS using Zig markers.
  4. Lastly I decorated my envelope with craftyscrappers shaker elements and flowers to make the envelope more pretty.

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

 

  1. I first coloured the brother-sister image from the “Rakhi wishes” stamp using Camlin brush markers. This is such a cute image and so much fun to colour.
  2. I then did the fancy fold as I did in my previous card. I glued the image such that whole of it was visible upon closing the card.
  3. Then I added a green pattern paper underneath the image to give it some base. Otherwise, my image will look like its floating.
  4. I finally stamped the sentiment on a cream coloured paper using red versa colour ink, and matted this circle onto a red paper.
  5. I cut the red paper with scissors to create the postage look.

20180317_110305.jpg

I created this card as a Belated Birthday card for my friend.
As she love sharks and movie “Jaws”, so I created a special card for her!

I have to say they are freaking adorable!
And there are all sort of details that make them one of a kind,
great tiny elements and so much fun to color.

step2

 At the outer edges I gave a thin coat of lighter grey copic marker and fussy cut them. The white sheet is so smooth with Mat finish, love the results and enjoyed coloring my image with markers! You must have this awesome white CS to give it a try!!!

20180306_121152

 

step3

Then on white card base to create my underwater scene, I drew a big stone at the bottom with my pencil and stamped some ocean weeds, coral reef images and all tiny elements. Colored them with my copic markers again.
20180306_121212.jpg
20180306_124711.jpg
step4
cs-stnlm-14FADING.jpg
I left the top space blank and applied different DI -Tattered rose, Salty ocean, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch using finger daubers to create an ocean scene. Then I blended some DI at the leftover blank space and flicked it with some water droplets. 
20180306_130040.jpg
20180306_155512.jpg
Wow, love the amazing outcome, its look like real ocean edge and at the top most with different shades of blue hues!
step5

 

Created a speech banner with a cute sentiment holding by a jaw-some shark and created the whole scene!

 

 

20180317_110349.jpg

I carried away the sentiment inside with Birthday wishes.
Stamped the Ocean waves using two shades of DI with a message bottle.

20180318_172220.jpg 
Untitled-1.png
step1

Firstly I used my glittery paste leftover on the stencil from my last holi festival card, I keep that scrap sheet for my next creation and  I used it here!

20180306_182914.jpg

 

 

step2

 

I quickly placed my stencil on a white CS upside down and pressed firmly and used Ocean Waves Shimmer Spray through the stencil.

CS-SSP-02OCEANWAVES.jpg

 

(Important Tip:  Always try to use your products in an innovative style and never waste them!)

 

20180306_182905.jpg

 

step3

On a black card base I placed this stenciled panel and added a vellum sheet on it for the visible soft effect.

20180317_122053.jpg

 

step4

 Using waves images from the You are so Jaw-some stamp set I stamped them in mermaid lagoon DI to create some ocean waves. Watercolored them using blueprint sketch and mermaid lagoon DI and fussy cut them. At the bottom panel, I added that ocean waved panel with  foam dots.

 

step5

Now time to stamp my shark images. I picked up two of the different images from the You are so Jaw-some stamp set. This time I heat embossed my images in Metallic Gold Sparkle EP. Using Soul eggplant and Ocean waves Shimmer spray colors from CS, I watercolored them, easily blended with water and added some tiny dots at the upper body part of the shark images. Added those googly eyes to look like more real! Adhered them with foam dots.

 

20180318_172232.jpg

 

step6

Added some sea foam waves on the white part of waves for more dimension using Snow Marker and heat embossed them!
Added a sentiment on a black strip in Metallic Gold Rich Pale EP and finished it off with some water dew drops blings!

cs-stnl-20[SPLASH].jpg
which I used in my second card. Before drying those DI, I quickly sprayed some water and placed my inked stencil upside down on a leftover piece of Premium white cardstock from Craftyscrappers.
Get the awesome monochrome marble effect of splashes, love it!!!

By stamping these adorable shark images from You are so Jaw-some stamp set on a vellum sheet and heat embossed in opaque bright white EP, fussy cut them.

 

step2

Die cut some inverted scalloped frames included some from white foam sheet to give some dimensions to my layers.

 For the sentiment I die cut Friend script out of a white foam sheet to make a good stack. Before I die cut my top layer, I added some sticky sheet to the paper. That way I added Sizzling Silver  foil from CS for the sentiment.

SENDING SUNNY SMILES STAMP DIAROMA CARD: a video tutorial!

Hello Everyone,

This is Deepti and Today I’m at Crafty Scrapers Youtube channel
to show you how to make an A2 size Diaroma card.

blog start.jpg

 

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT DIAROMA CARDS:

Diorama cards are wonderful little creations that allow card makers to build up a three dimensional scene using a few simple folds and a couple of pieces of cardstock. The idea is simple yet the dimensions it gives after completion is astounding to see!
There are several different ways to create these cards, and some of the more complicated methods have a number of layers to give even more depth to the finished product.
And today i will demonstrate you a basic tutorial that will give you the general idea of how to make these cards.

MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD & TAG
By DT Member

blog ender.png

 Today I have a MIXED MEDIA page art journal spread and a tag to inspire you all for the current Craftyscrappers Challenge.

 

(MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD)

ed1.jpg

ed2.jpg

 

A Brief tutorial
(
MIXED MEDIA MULTI PAGE ART JOURNAL SPREAD)

 

  • I took 4 card-stock from Craftyscrappers and tear it from middle just to make hole of different sizes, as you can see in image.
  • I started coloring from bottom page using Craftyscrappers shimmer sprays, for 1st layer I used “Rusty Denim” , For 2nd layer used “Sweet Sunshine”, for 3rd layer I used “Dancing Peacock
  • and for 4th layer I used texture paste and created texture using stencil called “Geometrical patterns” and after it dries completely I colored the page using “Juicy Watermelon“, “Sweet Sunshine”, and “Rusty Denim” from darker shade to lighter shade.
  • In this step I distressed the torn parts using “Greasy Charcoal” chalk paint, this way pages will have depth and I also stamped dotted pattern stamp around the torn area, for this I used “INSPIRE” stamp set, I follow this stamping process for all the 4 pages. (for reference have a look on final page)
  • Distress all the 4 pages using black ink and glue them together but instead of using foam tape, I used chipboard so that it will have dimensional look.
  • I stamped girl image from “Happy HOLI” Stamp set, Colored it using watercolor and fussy cut the image & place it on the page as if that girl is coming from colored layers (That’s what my concept was) To lift up the girl image I used 2 to 3 layers of chipboard behind it.
  • I also spread silver glitter behind the girl image and to the front page I spread just a little amount of “Tinted Gold” shimmer paste using palette knife to add shine and sparkly look,
  • After this I stamped the quote (saying) stamp image from “HOLI” Stamp set, Fussy cut that image and adhere on the page using double sided foam tape.
  • Later on this page added flat back gems randomly to have a elegant look, And Voila!!! our multi-page Art journal spread is complete.

 

 

(MIXED MEDIA TAG)

ed3.jpg

 

A Brief tutorial
(MIXED MEDIA TAG)

  • I took Packaging cardboard and made cut-out of tag of 5 inches by 3 inches and glue down broken brush head on it.
  • Then I paste metal butterfly just to hide broken part of brush and also added sea-shells, art stones and micro beads. (Seed beads, micro beads, art stone works as a filler and also
  • In this step I covered entire tag with gesso and after gesso dries completely.
  • I colored the tag using “Tasty Tortilla” and “Muddy Pool” shimmer sprays.
  • I used gesso again just to add highlight little bit, in this step I took very little amount of gesso on dry brush and apply so that dimensional elements get highlighted.
  • Distress the edges and then added Shimmer paste using pallet knife.
  • Stamped sayings from “INSPIRE” stamp set and finished this tag.

ed1.jpg

 

A Brief tutorial
(YOU FILL MY DAYS WITH COLOR CARD)

 

  • I started with stamping some cute pichkari images from the Celebrate Holi Stamp set in Jet black Archival ink. 
  • Colored these images using different Shimmer Sprays Sour eggplant, Ocean waves, Bitter lemon, Sweet pumpkin and one DI- candied apple and one Memento dye ink- Dandelion using water. Fussy cut them.
  • On a stitched textured white CS, at the top I carefully stamped the Splash image three times overlapping them from the Celebration Holi stamp set using Different DI and slightly spritzed it with water bottle. Love the faded dripping colorful result. Then once again I stamped those splashes using same DI for the good impact result.
  • Die cut a scalloped circle out of black CS and black foam sheet. 
  • In the center I created my own sentiment using same stamp set again, this stamp set included so many cute text sentiments!
  • You Fill My Days With in jet black Archival ink and Colors in using different DI.
  • Now placed all the elements to create my colorful festive scene with fun using foam dots.
  • In the end, placed this panel on a colorful Plaid PP and adhered it on a white CS. And slightly applied some tinted gold SHIMMER PASTE for glittery impact with my brush for little sparkle.

By DT Member
blog ender.png

 

 Today I have a fun and colorful project to inspire you all for the current Craftyscrappers Challenge.

I have tried stretching my stamps in a very extraordinary way.The stamp set was designed for Holi festival but now as the festival is over I was confused how to make something out of it and that’s where this technique of stretching the stamps clicked to me.

 

STRETCHING THE STAMPS IN A CREATIVE WAY : A CARD

ed1.jpg

ed2.jpg

ed3.jpg

 

 

A Brief tutorial

 

  • I have used the triangle geometric shape in the stamp set,”Celebrate Holi”  which was actually representing gulal(Holi Powdered color) on the stamp set to create my background first with Distress oxide inks in various colors.
  • After that I have used You die and made a diecut on the finished background.
  • Took that diecut out and replaced it with same white cardstock diecuts thrice,
  • lastly topped the original distress oxide inked  diecut.
  • The sentiment is from same stamp set, “Celebrate Holi“.
  • stamped with Black Archival ink.
  • Lastly attached Cup sequins to adorn the card.
