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.

FUN WITH SHIMMER PASTES N ACETATE:A layered card.

Hello Friends,
 
This is Priyanka over the blog today,
and I am going to share a tutorial on a fun layered card
with the twist of using acetate & shimmer pastes along!

FG

Here’s a look at the completed layered card:

1
 
 
The best part is it is really easy to make and yet unique in its design,

Possible image 1

So so let’s start with the process of making it….
(* picture heavy post!)

step1
 
Take a piece of acetate and select the shades of shimmer pastes to be used,
here I picked two shades “Dreams” & Envy”  from Craftyscrappers to get two different shades.
step2
Then using the   French Script stencil”  , took sufficient amount of shimmer paste and applied the shimmer pastes to the acetate sheet.
 
Next I picked an orange card from the cards set again from the store,
these have bright shades to choose from and are thick enough to handle layers and other mediums.

Isn’t it looking pretty? I loved the outcome on acetate.
step3
I decided to make a window on the card to fit the acetate sheet, so cut out a rectangular piece out of the card

4

 
Added the acetate to the cut out using both sided tape from the back side. 
 
step4
Next sprayed Shimmer Spray –Sweet Sunshine”  on a piece of pattern paper.
I must say these sprays are so perfect, they spread beautifully and just little is needed to spray; they give nice intense color.

SWEET SUNSHINE(CS-SSP-10)_727x768

Shimmer Spray –“Sweet Sunshine”

step5
 
Mounted this to a brown cardstock and tied a twine to it.
Added this tag to my card.

step6
Stamped a cute Hog image using the stamp set “Hogs and Kisses” and
colored it using faber castell connector pens.

Added this image to a piece of brown card-stock using double sided foam tape. 
step7
Stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and added this to the card.

Lastly added few rhinestones and drew black stitched lines around the window, using black gel pen.
