Okay… So a few days back, a dear friend of mine, requested for some inspirations on some of our stamp sets, but due to time and bad health i wasn’t getting enough time to create something..
On the other hands, even our wonderful DTs were full with inspiration dead lines for our ongoing challenge… so burdening them with more inspirations was injustice.
so i took a day off from work and tried my hands on some of the techniques (techniques are taught by my dear friends and our talented Dts.. thankyou all for that! really appreciate you guys.. !!!)
So this is for you… hope you all like them!

 

I have used One particular technique from each of my dear friends and Dts to create my cards.
(You all may check their awesome tutorials posts and videos,
here at the blog as well as their blogs/Instagram/pinterest and Youtube to create your own. )

For my Second Card , i have used the stamp set,” Gator wishes” along with the stamp sets, ” HONEY-BUNNY“, “Beary special day” ” Ewe-r-speacial” and “Hippo wishes to u.”
i wanted to create a scene where all critters were on the way to wish the recipient.
i didn’t add any sentiment to it, because i wanted the sentiment to be inside the card.

But before i reveal the Winner prize,
let me share with you a quick and easy Festive Card tutorial.
I made these easy festive cards for my family and friends on Diwali.

1.jpg

Diwali, or Deepawali,  is a Sanskrit word meaning “rows of lighted lamps,” is a Hindu-originated festival celebrated in India and worldwide.
During the five-day celebration  which is also known as the “festival of lights”,clay lamps known as diyas are lit to signify the destruction, through knowledge of all negative qualities — be it violence, anger, jealousy, greed, fear or suffering… in other words, the victory of good over evil.
As per tradition, Diwali is celebrated with grand splendor, where every home is lit with diyas, leaving no room for darkness to enter, sweet and savory snacks are prepared throughout the day, every doorstep is decorated with rangoli to welcome guests with great honor, one fashions new clothing to thank Goddess Lakshmi for providing prosperity and good fortune, when the sun sets, firecrackers light up the streets… and it is the perfect time, for sending some love as gifts to your family and friends.

Moving on to the Tutorial, On how i created these…

 

step1

I took the Craftyscrappers Premiun cardstock (white) and Die cut 10 pieces, using Madrasbazaar stitched rectangle die and created my first layer for my cards.

 

WHITE finalBLENDING.jpg
(I later on ended up making 30-50 card bases.. for a total of 50cards 🙂 )

2.jpg

 

step2

 

Then i took Fried brick, spiced marmalade and wild honey distressing inks and started blending them together to create a background.

3.jpg

step3

Once the inks were nicely blended, I sprayed mist over the distress background that allowed the ink to wick and spread out, traveling across the paper  and created a beautiful effect.Then i let it dry over night.  
(Many thanks to Niharika Gupta for teaching me this technique!)

This is how the backgrounds looks after they are  dried:

4.jpg

 

 

step4

 

Next, i started working on the focal point of the card.
For this, i decided to use the beautiful image from Craftyscrappers festival (diwali) stamp set, “Blasting Diwali” designed by Aastha Jain.

ST-FEST-28[blasting diwali]cover.jpg


It has some really nice sentiments and images that is just perfect for the occasion!
I stamped a bunch of the beautiful diya from the stamp set, using Staz-on Black ink.

5.jpg

 

step5

 

After i stamped the diyas with the staz-on black ink, i started stamping them again using Craftyscrappers Fun foil glue, (You can use any glue for this technique, but do make sure that the glue is sticky and transparent once it dries.)
so that i could use Craftyscrappers Fun-foils without any lamination machine.
You may check my video tutorial here, where i have demonstrated an easy way of foiling using the bigshot machine, if you do not have a laminator machine or a heat tool.

6.jpg


(Sorry about the poor quality of the pic!!!
It was very difficult to capture the shine on the foils due to the lights reflection!)

 

Possible image 1

 

I used Craftyscrappers Fun foils-glitzy gold, to create these diyas and fussy cut them.


GLITZY GOLD.png

This is how they look, once foils applied:

7.jpg

 

step6

 

After foiling the Diya’s i started coloring them using Smart color watercolor markers and water brush.I pastel shaded for the diya’s so that i could create a contrast with the background.


8.jpg

This is how they look, Up close:

9.jpg

I added the Double sided dimensional adhesive from oddy and kept it aside.

10.jpg

 

step7

 

Next i started working on the inside sentiment, for the card.
For this, i decided to go with the beautiful sentiment from Craftyscrappers stamp set, “Crackling Diwali”, designed by Pritusha Banerjee. this stamp set too has many sentiments and images that are ideal for creating Diwali cards.

ST-FEST-19[crackling deepawali].jpg

 

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Craftyscrappers Premium white cardstock and repeated the process, that i did with the Diyas.

For Foiling the inside sentiments, i used Craftyscrappers fun foil- Stormy Violet.

 

STORMY VIOLET.png


(Stamping with staz-0n black ink, then stamping with the Craftyscrappers Fun foil glue, placing a piece of foil- shiny side up and running it through the bigshot machine.)

This is how the inside sentiments looks once Fun foils applied:

 

11.jpg

 

step8

 

I also foiled some Diwali wishes for the front of my card, the same way i did before.
I used Craftyscrappers Vellum sheets  for this and used Craftyscrappers Fun-foils-Blushing salmon for this.

BLUSHING SALMON.png

I used Craftyscrappers Vellum sheets and stamped the diwali sentiment and foiled them.

 

vellum.jpg

This is how they look, once foils applied:

12.jpg

 

step9

 

Next, i started assembling everything to create my Diwali cards.
First i adhered the distressed background to an A2 Card size.

13.jpg

 

step10

 

Then added the foiled and colored diyas and front sentiment on top of it using some double sided dimensional tape.

14.jpg

 

and lastly added the foiled sentiment on the front and the diwali wishes on the inside of the cards.
I wanted to keep the card simple so embellished them using some coordinating shaker elements from Madrasbazaar.
And thus finished with the Diwali cards.

FUN FOILS CARDS: a brief tutorial!

Hello Friends…
 
Hope you had an awesome weekend..
 
Here I’m back at Craftyscrapper’s blog with some fun cards using
Craftyscrappers FUN FOILS and SHIMMER PASTES ...
nj

This is the first time I’ve used foil 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..
They can be used with 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.

BEAUTIFUL TAGS: a complete tutorial!

Hello friends,

 This is Anila over the blog today,
and i have some tags tutorial to share with you today,
using different techniques and mediums.

fk

 

 



Who doesn’t love tags… 🙂
Stampers have used tags for years to create mini works of art.
A tag is small that is not too  intimidating very easy and fun to create..
that is .. it’s okay, even if you mess up.
Tags are great for experimenting with new techniques, too.

 

So I created these three easy yet fun tags with stamps, inks,
sprays ,stencils and shimmer pastes…

 

Possible image 1

 
 Here’s a look at the completed tags:

So lets begin with the tutorial…
(* picture heavy post!)

 

Possible image 1

 

 

step1
 
To begin with, I took white colored ready tags…
You can even cut them from a white Cardstock,
of any size to create your own custom sized tags.
10241014
Ready made TAGS
step2

Took the tag, secured it on the table with washi tape.
Then Secure the stencil over the tag with washi tape.
The stencil that i have used for this tag is from craftyscrappers
and its called,
create-a-scene(sunburst)
cc-stnl-12_694x768
CREATE-A-SCENE(SUNBURST)
step3

Take sufficient amount of shimmer paste (Separate stencil and shimmer paste for each tag) and evenly spread it across/through the stencil.
The shimmer paste that i am using here is called,
 2
step4
 
Repeat the same for all the three tags.
After applying a generous layer of the shimmer paste,
I let it air-dry. (You can heat-set it too!) 
(this is how they look…)
3
step5
 
 
Once dry I sprayed two of the tag with the coordinating shimmer sprays from my DT kit. (Spray each tag separately)
The shimmer pastes and shimmer sprays are extremely versatile and beautiful in itself.
The shimmer sprays that i used here are,
SHIMMER SPRAY-Grape juice and SHIMMER SPRAY-Sweet Pumpkin
(this is how they look…)
 
4
step6
 
For the third tag, I coloured the background using distress ink. 
(Applying Distress inks on the craft mat and picked up the color with water brush) 
 

5

step7
 
Let the tags dry again. 
(this is how they look…)
 

6

step8
 
Next, I started layering the tags with pollens and lots of flowers.
 7
step9
 
I tried to use the matching colored flowers and pollens for each tag.
Like this stem color tag with coordinating flowers…
8
 
step10
 
I stamped a seperate sentiment for each tag from Craftyscrappers stamp sets
and mounted them on the tag using foam adhesive.
I tied twines along with coordinating ribbon through the punched hole.
Lastly added matching sequins from craftyscrappers to add some elements.
