AVNI GDT POST.jpg

 

 Since child hood, I was passionate towards crafts.. but one day I was searching something on YouTube and I came across Craftycrappers Youtube Channel,
Craftyscrappers Channel has so many craft videos,which were so inspiring and educational.
Each video has a new idea, a different technique to showcase.
Not to mention, their products. Craftyscrappers is the first company here in India to bring so many versatile crafting products at a pocket friendly cost,
whether they are clear craft stamps, mixed media tools such as shimmer pastes,stencils or shimeer sprays… or scrabooking supplies such as Pattern papers,Die cuts, dies,ribbons, flowers,charms..ets.. they have it all.. and that too are priced economically, keeping in mind crafters need and their capacity to afford those products to create stunning creations.
I have been so impressed by Craftyscrappers products and the videos, that from last three months , I have taken crafts seriously… Not only that, they have a superb Design team, who are so talented in their fields… and their Craft videos/tutorials are so very inspirational and motivating… that has motivated me to come up with new crafty ideas and give life to my creations.
 

“Thank you Craftycrappers team”
for being the best,
for bringing crafting to a whole new level, for providing versatile and beautiful products in India at an economical rate so that all crafters, whether beginner or experienced can afford and enjoy them with out any hindrance and most importantly, For showcasing crafters handwork and talent with the world.

As a part of the Guest Design team I have made an easel card for you all as an inspiration using Craftyscrappers new release  “you are so enchanting”.

ST-BD-20[you r so enchanting].jpg
This Stamp set is so mesmerizing and unique and is designed by Pritusha Banerjee,
who is an established graphic artist in India.
Craftyscrappers has given a new meaning to the fairytales themes and these designs are the first ones to surface in india, which makes me so very proud.
All of craftyscrappers stamp sets are available in 3 different sizes, keeping in mind the crafters need.
They are available in 4x4inch stamp set size which is perfect for making your own handmade embellishments for craft projects.
The 5x5inch stamp set size is the medium size, used in making A3 cards,envelopes and layouts, and its is the size that i have used to create my make today.
And the 6x6inch Stamp set size, which is the jumbo stamp set size,used for making bigger projects like,using in  8 or 12inch scrapbook layouts,mixed media etc.

Along with Craftyscrappers versatile stencil, ” Victorian”.

cc-stnl-07.jpg
Which is a beautiful and high quality stencil,for you to create amazing backgrounds
or highlights on your projects.
These stencils comes in a trendy package and are 6.5×6.5INCH in size,

which makes it easier for you to twist and turn the stencils according to your work surface.You can also customised the size of your stencils with Craftyscrappers, they have a wide range of  mini stencils too…
And the most incredible thing about them is, they are pocket friendly.

So this is my completed EASEL CARD:

avni1.jpg

 

An easel card is another fun alternative to the ordinary fold.
It has a built-in easel, so artwork stands beautifully on display. As an added bonus, the card lies flat for ease in mailing.

Here i will show you how you can create a Square easel card, but keeping the measurements in mind, you can create an easel card in any size that you like.

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • Cut one piece of card stock to 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and one piece to 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. The larger piece will serve as the base and the square will become the front.
  • The basic formula for an easel card is to divide the length of your base by two and score.  (This is the mid-point.) Next, divide one side by two and score. (This is the three-quarters point.)
    Place 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ block of card stock on scoring table horizontally. Score at 4 1/4″ and 6 3/8″.
  • Fold along score lines creating a mountain fold at the 4 1/4″ mark and a valley fold at the 6 3/8″ mark.
  • Flip card stock so that the largest panel is face down and the two smaller panels create a mountain fold. Apply double-sided tape to the outer panel.
  • Turn card stock so that adhesive is at the top and remove liner from tape. Adhere 4 1/4″ square to top of base, aligning top and side edges.
  • Decorate as desired. (I used “you are so enchanting” stamp set and Stencil, ” Victorian” with the “Shimmer paste-Splash” for this.
    Be sure to include a border strip,paper embellishment or Shimmer tape like i have used here, which is Craftyscrappers Shimmer tape,” Rainbow” near the bottom edge of the base (i.e. the rainbow strip as can be seen above) as this will help hold the card open for display. The deeper you adhere the “stop,” the taller your card will stand.
  • Then i created the origami air balloon using some scrap paper from my stash.
  • Colored and fuzzy cut the stamp set, you are so enchanting’ and adhered it to the balloon carriage.
  • Added some mulberry flowers from the store, and the card was ready.

 

Sharing some Close-ups:

I would also like to share some other variations/measurements to make Easel cards:

 

#1) MEASUREMENTS TO CREATE A STANDARD A2 SIZE VERTICAL EASEL CARD

  • Cut card stock pieces to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
  • Score 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece at 5 1/2″ and 8 1/4″. Fold along score lines.
  • Adhere double-sided tape to top folded edge. Remove liner from tape.
  • Adhere front panel to base, aligning top and side edges. Pull forward to stand in easel position.

 

 

Possible image 1

 

 #2)MEASUREMENTS TO CREATE A ROUND EASEL CARD

  • Cut one piece of card stock a little wider than your circle die and a little longer than twice the width. This will serve as the base. Score down the center and fold. Cut a second piece of card stock slightly larger than your circle die. This will become the front.
  • Using removable tape, adhere circle die to folded card stock with die edge just above the fold line. Die-cut with die-cutting machine to create folded circle base. Die-cut front circle shape as well.
  • Open folded circle. Fold top circle in half in opposite direction from center fold line. Apply double-sided tape to top half above fold.
  • Remove tape liner and adhere front circle, aligning all edges. Pull top circle forward into easel shape.

SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT WITH CS FUN-FOILS, SHIMMER PASTES AND STAMPS: a video tutorial!

Hello Everyone,
 
This is deepti and i hope you are doing good and
that you had loads of fun participating  in our previous challenge.

Well, im sure you all had!!!
 
I’m back at Craftyscrappers blog today and this time I have a Video tutorial on how i created this beautiful scrapbook layout  using craftyscrappers newly launched stamp sets, Fun foils, and shimmer pastes as an inspiration for our ongoing challenge, “SKETCH”
 
 
BL.jpg
 
 
This is the first time I’ve used Craftyscrappers fun foil glue with foils in my scrapbook layout 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 with a fun foil glue and 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.

Beautiful Layout

A brief description

  • I took a white card stock measuring 8″x8″.  
  • I stenciled one side of it using the mini Victorian Butterfly stencil using distress inks. The inks I used are Yellow- Fossilized Amber, Orange – carved pumpkin and Pink – Festive berries.
  • The other side of the card stock I stenciled with the Create-a-scene(sunburst)stencil with fossilized amber Distress ink.
  • I took a white card panel measuring 4″x6″, matted it with silver strips from the backside and foam mounted it on my Stenciled CS.
  • Adhered the photo to it. 
  • I stamped and heat embossed the flower from the “Bloom” mini stamp set with gold EP.
  • Colored the flowers using zig markers and mounted them on the card panel, adding leaves in between. 
  • On a piece of ready tag, I stamped the sentiment, tied a twine through the hole and mounted it on the LO.

 

Beautiful tag

A brief description

  • I took A2 size white cardstock, distress inked the background and stamped the images from Craftyscrappers “Mermaid Wishes” stamp set to add more details.
  • Once satisfied, I die cut out the vellum stitched star using stitched star dies from Craftyscrappers and adhered it on my distress inked background.
  • Meanwhile, I stamped the mermaid and fish images from the same stamp set on watercolor paper, colored and fussy cut it. Adhered the same using double-sided mounting tape.
