MIX MEDIA CARD with shimmer sprays: a tutorial!

Hello friends
This is Vani and i am back again on craftyscrappers blog with a new project,
which is a mix media card Using Craftyscrappers Shimmer Sprays.

 

Untitled-3.jpg

I had so much fun creating this using Craftyscrappers Shimmer sprays and the effect was  astounding to my surprise!
These Shimmer sprays are water-based and are water reactive too,
which is great to use on paper & other porous surfaces.
They come in fantastic range of Colors.
The shimmer in these sprays adds the touch of beauty to your craft projects.
You can use these directly or you can even mist them
with water to lighten the color variation.
These are ideal for mixed media, DIY & other crafting projects

 Okay, so lets begin the Tutorial:
step1

 First I took a Craftyscrappers premium white card stock and  sized it to 6 by7 inch.
And added two strips of patter paper to it  and assured it with tape on .
Then I applied one coat of gesso on it and let it air dry.

t.jpg

step2

After that I took,Craftyscrappers  mini stencil-Bricks and  shimmer spray-grape juice and mixed in texture paste to create a raised brick pattern.
Next I applied glue on the stencil and applied Craftyscrappers fun foil-Sizzling Silver sheet on to my textured brick pattern.
Then i burnished it with my fingers and removed the foil.
the effect is so beautiful.. check it out!

t2.jpg

 

step3

After that I took a MDF window cutout and applied gesso on it and let it ir dry.
after it was dry I applied Inka gold to give it a golden Vintage look.
Next i applied glue on top of the golden window and applied, Craftyscrappers fun foil-Sizzling Silver sheet on to it.This created a beautiful silver and gold textured look.
(This is how it looked)

t4.jpg
 
step4

After that I took some mulberry flower which is from the Craftyscrappers store and applied The Shimmer spray-Grape Juice on it.
Once dry,  I took the die cut sentiment-YOU N ME and applied glue on to it for foiling.
I just wanted a nice grungy coverage onto the die cut and the foils really made it look so shiny and  perfect.

t5.jpg
 
step5

Once everything was done, i decorate it with flowers, added another sentiment, “i love you” and assembled the shimmer sprayed, brick pattern background and the fun foiled sentiment.

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.

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.
