  • Using green distress ink create the land/grass portion on one side of the card. 
  • Divide the card into 3 parts. Score the card at 4″ interval to create the tri-fold base. 
  • For the first part, using the Sunburst stencil create the sun. Stamp the cloud using blue ink. 
  • For the second part, stamp the clouds and the raindrops using grey ink and lightening using yellow ink.
  • For the third part, stamp the cloud and raindrops with grey ink. Stamp the sentiment using Versafine Onyx black ink.
  • Stamp flowers on all 3 panels. Also, add finer details like grass etc.

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.

MARCH DT KIT2018.jpg

In my March DT kit, I received some really awesome and one of a kind stencils,
To name a few, there was, Abstract patterns stencil, then Splash stencil,fading pattern mini stencil and Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil.

The Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil from Craftyscrappers offers a wide creativity options, they come with “elements” that you can use as masks and create stunning projects and the size of flowers are just perfect!!!
here’s how it looks:

 

Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil

cs-stnl-18[CREATEAFLOWER-ROSES].jpg

I was eager to try them out the Create-A-Flower(roses) stencil as the layered roses impact is very trendy and popular nowadays. It is a bit tricky and requires a lot of practice. But After some successful attempts I managed to get some pretty roses.
I decided to fussy cut and use the good ones to make a card.

So lets begin with our tutorial now….

Okay so moving on to my tutorials now…

 

 

Card#1- Pretty Roses-Watercolor effect!

cs card1.jpg

Below is my take and trial methods I did.
I took  some clicks step wise to make it clear how to use them.
This is the direct impact of Create-A-Flower(Roses) stencil to make you the concept clear.
Untitled-1.png
step1.png
 To begin with,I used heavy whisper white CS and the  Altenew inks in the tones of purple and green to achieve a good result. You can use any dye inks but it should be various shades of same color family. I started with light to darker shades.
You can use pigment inks too but I refer for the best result to use dye inks only.
cs step1.jpg
step2.png
Place the stencil step wise as shown in the pics.
 
cs step2.jpg
step3.png

There are 3 rose elements too for masking.
I placed one of them according to the given size and added those leaves.

cs step2.jpg

 

Here’s how the final cut pieces looks:

 

cs step4.jpg

 In all I love this stencil set!
With little practice, roses were easy to align and love the final result after fussy cutting, so beautiful!
step4.png
Then i Die cut a scalloped circle frame 2 times out of white CS and a white foam sheet, made a stack. Now using my die,
I placed Abstract Pattern stencil on my white card base and applied dye ink.
cs-stnl-22[ABSTRACTPATTERNS].jpg
Now placed the stack of die cut scalloped circle
and added some splatters using Midnight magic shimmer spray for more interest and fun.
CS-SSP-06MIDNIGHTMAGIC.jpg
cs step5.jpg
The sentiment Hugs is a Pre die-cut from
Craftyscrapper Die cut set- “SMILE TOGETHER” in black
CS-DCS-07_585x768-800x800.jpg
and finished it with some enamel dots!
Here’s how the final card looks:

The inside view:
Happy Birthday sentiment is from Doodly Blooms stamp set.

I have a short-flip-through video of my final outcome!

Card#2: Time 2 Explore-MIXED MEDIA TECHNIQUE

cs card2.jpg

 

This is a popular panel theme card in mixed media style. I never plan out for my cards. I just started with 3 panels out of a textured white CS. 

Untitled-1.png

Using CS clock and numbers stencil I applied 3 different Memento dye inks to create my wall clocks.

 

cs-stnlm-13.jpg

 Then added another layer of CS Damask stencil in soft green!
step2.png
I die cut some flowers and on a craft mat, sprayed those flowers with CS Shimmer Sprays Ocean waves and Sour eggplant, love the shimmery result.
2ns1.jpg
 
step3.png 
 The MDF fairy is gesso first and then highlighted with
 CS Shimmer paint Royal Baby.

step4.png
 

 Die cut some more different elements. The sentiment explore and number 2 die cut 3 times to make a good stack and on a top layer applied glossy accent for dimension. Now added all them to create the whole scene on a textured white card base. In the end added some shimmery splatters and applied gesso and shimmery paint to highlighted the flowers with more dimension.

 

Here is the end result.
