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.

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.

Before further ado…
Lets move to the step by step tutorial…
 
 
step1
T1.jpg
 

I took magnetic sheet, cardboard, White card stock , Kraft card stock and pattern paper and cut all of these in to 4 by 3.5 inches size as shown in the pic.

 

 

 

step2
T2.jpg

After that I made two sets as in the pic Where in set one I glued Kraft cardbaord + pattern paper and in another set Magnetic sheet + Kraft Card stock + White card stock.

 
step3
T3.jpg
 
Now I  did some marking on the back side of the cardboard where I glued my pattern paper as shown and cut out the window of 2.11 inches. After that I cut some card board strips and glued it to the three sides of my Polaroid frame leaving some space to keep the photo in place. Now I have to cut the extra strips.
step4
T4.jpg

In this step , I cut the extra strips ,applied the fevicol on it and mounted it on the magnetic sheet ( set 2 )..

 

Our magnetic Polaroid frame is ready..
(this is how it looks:)

T5.jpg
 
Now, you can decorate it as per your choice, theme  etc..
and you can slide your photo of size 3.25 by 3 inches from the top.

To decorate my Polaroid frame, I stamped mermaids and fishes from Craftyscrapper’s Mermaid Wishes stamp set on watercolor paper, colored these and fussy cut it.Added the Smile die cut out to complete these.

  • 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.
