This is the first time i have used fun foils
To create both of my projects i have used, the
SIZZLING SILVER fun foil.

 

SIZZLING SILVER
these fun foils are super shiny and are of professional grade .
They work well with any lamination machine available,
if you want to heat transfer using these super shiny foils or
they can also be used with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils… which is great!!! since many of us do not have lamination machines at home, Craftyscrappers also have launched, the fun foil glue, that works perfectly with these fun foils.They come in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from as well.

 

 

Then i also used the amazing and one of a kind shimmer paste, that stand out from the rest of the products in the market.
The shimmer pastes that i used for the projects are

SHIMMER PASTE-BUTTER

and

SHIMMER PASTE-TICKLED. 


These shimmer pastes add a fabulous layer of shimmer and shine to any craft project  and you can use any kind of stencils with these shimmer paste to create beautiful sparkling details and add the touch of beauty to any card, scrapbook or mixed media.
The best thing about them is that these can be used on paper, cardboard,chipboard,acetate, wood, glass,mdf,fabric and even on layered stencils.
These shimmer paste r so smooth and so shiny… that i love to work with it and the results are super-duper awesome.


To create my artwork. i have also used the
shimmer sprays.
The shimmer sprays that i have used for my projects are :

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.

 
3
 
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.

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.

HOGS N KISSES
IMG_20170924_241825548
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.

So lets begin with the tutorial…

step1
I took a piece of Beilo 300 gsm Cardstock mearuring 4.25″ × 5.5 “.

I used the
SHIMMER PASTE- BLUSH

step3

Apply the shimmer paste, evenly all over the cardstock and once done,
pick the extra and keep it in the bottle.
(That way there is less wastage.)

step4

Remove the Stencil slowly n allow it to dry.
You can  air dry it or you can use a heat tool to dry it.
I prefer air dry method for this effect.
(this is how it will look…)

step5
Then I took a piece of Orange Cardstock measuring 4.5″×11″inches in size.
and folded it in half scoring at 5.5″ on 11″ side.
I adhered a matching ribbon and pearls on the embossed panel
and using red tacky tape I adhered it to the Orange Cardstock.

step6

I stamped a thank you sentiment using my Archival ink and completed the card.

I’ve also used lilac shimmer paste to make another variant for the card.

The texture and effect of the shimmer paste is just awesome
and it gives a nice shimmery effect to the card.

The little critters that fit in the balloon basket are too cute.

 

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

 

For this card, I first stamped the cute images on  the cardstock and coloured it with Staedtler water colour pencils and Koi waterbrush.
Fussy cut them.  I created the background with salty ocean & moved lawn Distress Inks.The fussy cut images were adhered to the front panel with foam tape for a little bit of dimension. For my greeting, I stamped it onto some white cardstock and distressed edges and then popped it up with some foam tape. I finished off my card with a few silver sequins.

 
Here are some closeups

Mom-to-be: A quick Journal!

Hello All Crafty Friends……….!!
 
This is Apurva here today over the blog,
with My First DT post For CraftyScrappers and I am super excited
to be a part of this amazing team which consist of super talented crafters.
Possible image 1
 
So let’s begin,
Pregnancy is a most memorable Journey in Life of A Mommy.
She goes through a lot of body changes, mood swings,
cravings and lot more things during this 9 month period.
When a baby arrives it is a wonderful moment to the parents as well as the family.
 
So I’m here today to showcase a Pregnancy Journal I have created for the “mom – to – be”.
using Craftyscrappers clear stamp, “GREAT ADVENTURE”.

Here’s a quick look  at the completed album.
1
I have used the  GREAT ADVENTURE stamp set from Crafty Scrappers to decorate the cover.

ST-BY-17[great adventure]_768x768
GREAT ADVENTURE

Look at this stamp set…
This stamp set is available in three different sizes so that we
can pick the size according to our crafting needs.
This super gorgeous stamp set,have some really nice sentiments (not to mention the beautiful calligraphy) that are perfect not just for making scrapbooks but  also for using them on cards.
You can create Baby shower, mom-to-be, new arrival or pregnancy and
baby related cards using them.
It has this beautiful pregnant lady in the stamp set, which is big enough to cover the front of a journal page.
You can also create the polka-dot pattern (included in the stamp set) to create different variations for the dress and the shoe.
And this beautiful stamp set was just so  perfect to match my journal and make it complete.
Possible image 1

Let me give you brief about the journal album…

4

This is a 4×6 Journal and it doesn’t have much embellishment in it,
so that it is easier and handy to carry it in a bag and  a lot more easier to Journal.

I have designed this journal in such a way that the mom can write a lot of things in the journal as well as design it according to her choice.

Possible image 1
The journal has 3 signature Pages- 1st Trimester, 2nd Trimester 
and 3rd Trimester respectively.
Each Signature  page, includes 8 pages (16 sides) so there is a lot of space for journaling.
Here’s how they look….


I have also created pockets on the insides of front and back cover so additional things can be stored as and when required!
5

These are the weekly tags with numbers and sentiments on them.
These weekly tags are given to make the journal more interesting.
These can be inserted into the Signature  pages, that includes 8 pages and a total of 16 sides, to record the special events.
Sharing some of the Close-ups :

This quick and simple MOM-TO-BE journal was very fun to make, especially with the stamp set that covered everything from sentiments to the focus-image for the cover.
I hope you all liked the journal too. I would love to hear from you… !

Do drop by the store to check out this stamp set along with some newly
released stamps sets and Transfer Fun-Foils too.
