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…

  • Stamped the big numbers from the Simple Numbers stamp set from Craftyscrappers on a Premium White CS with Versamark using Wow opaque bright white EP and heat embossed it.
  • I placed a curved border element from Create-a-scene(Sunburst stencil ) at the bottom and Used 2 similar shades of DI Stormy sky and broken china to create the background and at the bottom now removed the stencil and applied Crushed olive DI.
  • I flicked some water using my fingers as I wanted big splotches, dabbed off the excess water with paper towel.
  • Now I stamped the adorable hedgehog from Enjoy the Ride stamp set from CS and a trunk from the same stamp set in jet black archival ink on a watercolor sheet and colored it with using Copic markers and add detailing using a white gel pen.
  • Fussy cut them, applied black marker at the edges after cutting.
  • Now created my foreground at the bottom by stamping some grass and mushrooms using same stamp set.
  • Watercolored them using ZIG brushes.
  • Stamped and cut the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Doodly Blooms stamp set.
  • Stamped the number 5th from the same set and the balloon from Hippo Wishes to You stamp set and colored them too, fussy cut them.
  • At the end created the whole birthday scene using pop dots and finished it off with some light blue color sequins from CS and added some shine using crystal stickles.

a brief tutorial
 
 
  • For this card, I started with two cute hedgehog images, bicycle( 2 times and heat embossed it with clear EP for shine) and some sunflowers from Enjoy the Ride stamp set.
  • Stamped all the images on a watercolored sheet. Coloured them using Copic markers and Zig brushes.
  • Fussy cut all the images.
  • Now I separated the wheels from one of the bicycle images and attached the wheels through brads on another fussy cut part. 
  • Now the fun part, it is moving!!! Showcasing in a video clip.(CHECK AT THE END)
  • On a strip of black CS, stamped the sentiment from the same set and a bird from the Hippo wishes to you stamp set and heat embossed using Opaque Bright white EP.

  • On a white curved border stamped another sentiment from the same set.
  • Using pop dots created the whole fun scene on a light green Pattern paper from my stash!

(word creation technique)

1a.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • On a watercolour card panel, I stamped the “BIRTHDAY” word using Craftyscrappers Simple alphabets set and coloured them with zig markers.
  • Stamped the remaining sentiment.
  • On another card, I stamped the images, colored them with zig markers and fussy cut them.
  • On a colored card base I mounted the panel with the sentiments using foam adhesive.
  • Next, using foam adhesive, mounted the images on the card.I have kept this card very simple. 

 

SOME CLOSE-UPS:

CARD #2: Birthday Card
(Background creation technique)

2.jpg

 

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • On a white card panel, I stamped the image using grey ink repeatedly to cover the entire panel.
  • Stamped the image, colored with zig markers and fussy cut it.
  • Heat embossed the sentiment using Versa mark and white embossing powder.
  • I wanted the background to be very subtle, so using a sheet of vellum, I covered the entire panel from the front and tuck the ends of the vellum under the panel (So I need not stick on the front as the adhesive will be seen through vellum)
  • Mounted this panel on a colored card base using foam adhesive.
  • Mounted the image and the sentiment on the vellum.
  • Lastly, added few enamel dots and googly eyes to the chameleon to complete my card.
