A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

 

  • I took 2 blank tags and colored them using Craftyscrappers “Grape juice” and “dancing peacock” shimmer sprays and lift excess color using tissue ( here I just dabbed tissue paper on tags at random places)
  • Created texture on the first tag using Stencil “Geometrical patterns” and Craftyscrappers “Sprout” and “Stem” Shimmer paste , Just lay down the stencil on tag and spread generous amount of paste using palette knife ( I must tell you this pastes colors are so gorgeous and beautiful that makes you to fall in love with your project again and again) #MustHaveSupplies
  • For second tag I used another shades of Shimmer paste and those are “Cupcake” and “Blush” using same technique (To see these amazing shimmer paste result, don’t forget to watch the video, It’s already up on our channel)
  • Then I took 2 raw Sea Horse chipboard cut-outs and also covered entire cut-outs using Shimmer paste called “Butter” & Tinted gold” and for another cut-out I used “Jet” Shade.
  • To give the base for these Chipboard cut-outs, I used normal white sewing thread and pasted it on tag, after that I glue down the sea-horse cutout on tag, I follow the same process for both the tags.
  • Finished these tags by distressing the edges of tag using Black ink pad and adding some inspirational sayings…

CARDS#1 
Underwater Ocean scene!

 

20180317_110305.jpg

I created this card as a Belated Birthday card for my friend.
As she love sharks and movie “Jaws”, so I created a special card for her!

So i created my underwater Ocean scene using
You are so jaw-some stamp set for Craftyscrappers.
st-bd-30[youaresojawsome].jpg
I have to say they are freaking adorable!
And there are all sort of details that make them one of a kind,
great tiny elements and so much fun to color. 

along with Craftyscrappers Premium white Cardstock 

WHITE finalBLENDING.jpg

Which is a double-coated matt finish carstock, Ideal for stamping/Embossing/Distressing.
The cardstock is around 200gsm in thickness and have a Smooth surface allowing for blending while using markers or water colors.

 

Untitled-1.png

 

 

step1

 

I stamped the shark images on the Premium white CS from CS in jet black Archival ink and colored them with my copic markers and created a textures of tiny dots for more interest and dimension.

 

20180306_121147

 

step2

 At the outer edges I gave a thin coat of lighter grey copic marker and fussy cut them. The white sheet is so smooth with Mat finish, love the results and enjoyed coloring my image with markers! You must have this awesome white CS to give it a try!!!

20180306_121152

 

step3

Then on white card base to create my underwater scene, I drew a big stone at the bottom with my pencil and stamped some ocean weeds, coral reef images and all tiny elements. Colored them with my copic markers again.
20180306_121212.jpg
20180306_124711.jpg
step4
cs-stnlm-14FADING.jpg
I left the top space blank and applied different DI -Tattered rose, Salty ocean, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch using finger daubers to create an ocean scene. Then I blended some DI at the leftover blank space and flicked it with some water droplets. 
20180306_130040.jpg
20180306_155512.jpg
Wow, love the amazing outcome, its look like real ocean edge and at the top most with different shades of blue hues!
step5

 

Created a speech banner with a cute sentiment holding by a jaw-some shark and created the whole scene!

 

 

20180317_110349.jpg

 

step6

I carried away the sentiment inside with Birthday wishes.
Stamped the Ocean waves using two shades of DI with a message bottle.

CARD#2
You are so Jaw-some
20180318_172220.jpg 
Untitled-1.png
step1

Firstly I used my glittery paste leftover on the stencil from my last holi festival card, I keep that scrap sheet for my next creation and  I used it here!

20180306_182914.jpg

 

 

step2

 

I quickly placed my stencil on a white CS upside down and pressed firmly and used Ocean Waves Shimmer Spray through the stencil.

CS-SSP-02OCEANWAVES.jpg

 

(Important Tip:  Always try to use your products in an innovative style and never waste them!)

 

20180306_182905.jpg

 

step3

On a black card base I placed this stenciled panel and added a vellum sheet on it for the visible soft effect.

20180317_122053.jpg

 

step4

 Using waves images from the You are so Jaw-some stamp set I stamped them in mermaid lagoon DI to create some ocean waves. Watercolored them using blueprint sketch and mermaid lagoon DI and fussy cut them. At the bottom panel, I added that ocean waved panel with  foam dots.

 

step5

Now time to stamp my shark images. I picked up two of the different images from the You are so Jaw-some stamp set. This time I heat embossed my images in Metallic Gold Sparkle EP. Using Soul eggplant and Ocean waves Shimmer spray colors from CS, I watercolored them, easily blended with water and added some tiny dots at the upper body part of the shark images. Added those googly eyes to look like more real! Adhered them with foam dots.

 

20180318_172232.jpg

 

step6

Added some sea foam waves on the white part of waves for more dimension using Snow Marker and heat embossed them!
Added a sentiment on a black strip in Metallic Gold Rich Pale EP and finished it off with some water dew drops blings!

Card 3

Have a FIN-Tastic day Friends
20180317_110607.jpg
Untitled-1.png
step1
 
Now for this card, once again I used my  Splash stencil as a background creator
cs-stnl-20[SPLASH].jpg
which I used in my second card. Before drying those DI, I quickly sprayed some water and placed my inked stencil upside down on a leftover piece of Premium white cardstock from Craftyscrappers.
Get the awesome monochrome marble effect of splashes, love it!!!
20180306_190220.jpg
By stamping these adorable shark images from You are so Jaw-some stamp set on a vellum sheet and heat embossed in opaque bright white EP, fussy cut them.

 

step2

Die cut some inverted scalloped frames included some from white foam sheet to give some dimensions to my layers.

 For the sentiment I die cut Friend script out of a white foam sheet to make a good stack. Before I die cut my top layer, I added some sticky sheet to the paper. That way I added Sizzling Silver  foil from CS for the sentiment. 

 

SIZZLING SILVER.png

 

20180306_205402.jpg

 

 

step3

 I added  have a fin-tastic day sentiment from the same set in jet black.

CARD#3 : BONUS CARD

BONUS CARD.jpg

 

I had few of the coloured images remaining, so I thought of making a bonus card!
I made a card using a ready-to-use shaker card pack.

 

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:
 
  • I lightly traced the placement of the shaker windows on the card base and distressed that portion using distress inks.
  • I adhered two bees and two flowers on the distressed parts using liquid adhesive. Mounted the foam layer over this, followed by the acetate and the top layer.
  • Before adhering the top layer, I stamped the sentiment and other details using Versafine ink and Stampoholic.
  • After adhering this top layer, I added the bee using foam adhesive. LAslty, cover the bee with glossy accents to complete my card.
