Beautiful Layout

 

a1.jpg

 

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 cut a tag from a Kraft CS.
  • Using the Craftyscrappers Victorian stencil and white pigment ink, I stenciled one side of the tag. 
  • Mounted a piece of pattern paper on the tag using foam adhesive.
  • Stamped, colored and fussy cut the Ice-cream cones from the “Sweet” stamp set. 
  • Mounted the images on the pattern paper.

Untitled-5

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.
  • Completed my card by adding the sentiment and some sequins here and there.

BEAUTIFUL STENCIL BACKGROUND: a video tutorial!

Hello friends!
This is Anila, on the Craftyscrappers Blog and Today I have a video tutorial for you all …showing how to use a stencil to create a background for a card. 
FG.jpg
My card mainly focuses on the use of the stencil with distress inks to create your card.
I will be showing a simple distressing technique that will help you achieve clean distressed backgrounds with the stencils.
Craftyscrappers Stencils are high quality stencils,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 thats the Big size and are also available in Mini Sizes, which covers 4×5.5INCH in size,
which makes it easier for you to twist and turn the stencils according to your work surface.
And the most incredible thing about them is, they are pocket friendly.

These super gorgeous stamp sets,
will soon be up on our store
for you all to grab your favorite one before they are out of stock!!
so keep checking our Facebook/Instagram and Blog for more updates!!!

 

Okay so without further ado… lets begin the tutorial!

 

 

step1

Start with a sheet of White Cardstock- 8.5″ x 12″

1.JPG

 

 

step2

 

Score the sheet on the 12″ side at 5 1/8″ and 10 3/8″. This will give you the basic shape of the folio with a side flap.

 

2.JPG

3.JPG

 

step3

 

This is optional. You could round the edges of the entire sheet.

4.JPG

5.JPG

 

 

6.JPG

 

step4

 

Let’s work on our closure. We are using three magnets to close the flap. You could use velcro or any other mechanism of your choice. First glue down the three magnets on the page that closes inside to the left.

 

 

7.JPG

Place a few things inside the folio to make it a little bulky. Add drops of glue on top of the magnet, and close the flap. This way the glue gets transferred onto the flap and you will know where to place your opposite magnets. Seal your magnets with tape.

 

8.JPG
9.JPG
11.JPG

step5

Let’s make our pockets. For this cut white cardstock pieces of the following measurements- 3.5″ x 9.5″ (1piece- left pocket); 4 3/3″ x 9.5″ (1piece- right pocket); 2 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ (2 pieces right overlapping pockets)

12.JPG

13.JPG
14.JPG

step6

Score the bigger pieces at 1/2″ on three sides and the smaller pieces at 1/4″ on three sides.

15.JPG

16.JPG

17.JPG

step7

Fold along the score lines. And cut the corners at an angle.

18.JPG
19.JPG

 

Here’s a look at the pockets for inside of the folio.

 

20.JPG

21.JPG

 

Using a circle punch, cut a semi-circle at the centre of each pocket.

22.JPG

23.JPG

With this our basic construction of the Folio is ready. Let’s decorate it.
 
step8
 Cut pieces of pattern paper for your folio base inside and outside. We chose two different patterns and cut three pieces each of the following measurements- 4 7/8″ x 8 1/4″; 5″ x 8 1/4″; 1 1/2″ x 8 1/4″. Distress the edges using your coordinating Distress Ink. At every step, if you have rounded your corners, ensure you do the same to your pattern papers.
24.JPG
step9
Using the same ink and the French Script Stencil, add another dimension to the pattern paper.
25.JPG
26.JPG
 step10
Using a different pattern paper cut pieces for the pockets as per the following measurements- 2 3/4″ x 8 1/4″; 4 1/8″ x 8 1/4″; 2 3/8″ x 4 1/8″. On the bigger pockets- using the French Script Stencil and Salmon Shimmer Paste add texture to these pieces. Once dry, using the Sliced Dots Stencil and Shimmer Spray Sweet Pumpkin, add further dimension. On the smaller pockets- using the Sliced Dots Stencil and Shimmer Spray Grape Juice add some interest.

Distress the edges of these papers with the same ink as above. Begin gluing your pieces. Glue the pattern paper onto the pockets first. While that dries, glue the paper inside the folio and then the pockets.

Lastly, For our front cover, we added some Salmon Shimmer Paste with the Sliced Dots Stencil for texture. Stamp the ‘Being Traditional’ lady stamp on a piece of cardstock and colour it. We used the same spray inks and fussy cut it. We used a MDF Frame, coloured it with the same inks, and added some design with a background stamp and black ink. Assemble these onto your cover. We used a piece of gauge behind our layering. We also added ‘Wishing Happy Moments’ on the cover using the ‘Happy’ stamp set directly on the cover. To embellish our pockets, we stamped some flowers and leaves from the ‘Sending Smiles’ Stamp set and coloured them with Zig markers. Fussy cut and stuck them.

 

 
Here’s a look at the completed Folio.

For this project I have used lot of awesome supplies from Craftyscrappers.
A brief description:
On how to create this Mixed Media Home Decor
  • For this project,I took a simple silver card stock and applied some Ash shimmer paste and let it dry.
  • Once its dried I run it through an embossing folder.Then I stuck this sheet to cardboard.
  • For second layer I took a gift wrapping shimmery sheet and again embossed it with same folder,then stuck that on top of base with help of double sided tape.
  • After that I stuck a window die cut from one of the pattern papers.
  • Next I used Craftyscrappers “IM Stuck On U” stamp set to stamp and water color these beautiful succulents.I did fussy cutting to these stamps and again attached with double sided tape.
  • The sentiment is a metal embellishment stuck on a background created using same ash shimmer paste and some blue and green metallic paints.

Just simple stencil work made a simple brown box into a designer box and was perfect for the festive occasion.

Once distressed with the Rose bunch stencil,
I tied a Red polka dots ribbon to the box to decorate it.

This how the Box looked:
