A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • For this canvas, 
    Place the canvas flat on the table. 
  • Spray the shimmer sprays on the canvas and let them spread randomly and cover the entire canvas. Sprays used are Sweet sunshine, Grape juice and Sweet Pumpkin. Let it air-dry.
  • On a scrap green colored paper, put double tape on one side and die-cut leaves from the paper such that the leaf die-cuts have adhesive on the top. 
  • Gently peel the backing paper and place the fun foil (Green colored) on the leaf. Burnish it properly. (You can even run it through the Big shot machine, for smooth spreading.)
  • Peel off to reveal the leaves covered with the foil.
  • Repeat the process to make 3 more leaves.
  • To form a wreath we need 4 leaves (if the leaves are big) 
  • By now the canvas must have dried.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the stamp set, “santa’s christmas” in the center of the canvas. Arrange and adhere the leaves around the sentiment.
  • On a scrap paper put double tape, peel the backing paper and put red fun foil.
  • Punch out holes using a hole punch from the red foiled paper using the cherry red fun foils. 
  • On another scrap paper draw a bell and fussy cut it.
  • Cover it with Glitzy gold fun foil in the same process. 
  • Arrange and adhere the tiny red dots as cherries around the leaves on the canvas. Adhere the bells on the top of the canvas using foam adhesive. 
  • There your holiday canvas is ready!

Before starting with the tutorial ,
let me tell you… that Craftyscrappers challenges will start from the month of october’2017

Now.. lets talk a little about the supplies that i have used.

 

Possible image 1

 

This is the first time i have used fun foils
To create both of my projects i have used, the
SIZZLING SILVER fun foil.

 

SIZZLING SILVER
these fun foils are super shiny and are of professional grade .
They work well with any lamination machine available,
if you want to heat transfer using these super shiny foils or
they can also be used with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils… which is great!!! since many of us do not have lamination machines at home, Craftyscrappers also have launched, the fun foil glue, that works perfectly with these fun foils.They come in 16 gorgeous colors to chose from as well.

 

 

Then i also used the amazing and one of a kind shimmer paste, that stand out from the rest of the products in the market.
The shimmer pastes that i used for the projects are

 

 

IMAG2797
SHIMMER PASTE-BUTTER

and

IMAG2783
SHIMMER PASTE-TICKLED. 


These shimmer pastes add a fabulous layer of shimmer and shine to any craft project  and you can use any kind of stencils with these shimmer paste to create beautiful sparkling details and add the touch of beauty to any card, scrapbook or mixed media.
The best thing about them is that these can be used on paper, cardboard,chipboard,acetate, wood, glass,mdf,fabric and even on layered stencils.
These shimmer paste r so smooth and so shiny… that i love to work with it and the results are super-duper awesome.


To create my artwork. i have also used the
shimmer sprays.
The shimmer sprays that i have used for my projects are :



GRAPE JUICE(CS-SSP-04)_677x768
SHIMMER SPRAY-GRAPE JUICE

AND

 

SWEET PUMPKIN(CS-SSP-09)_696x768
SHIMMER SPRAY-SWEET PUMPKIN


The colors of these shimmer sprays are so intense and beautiful that you will fall in love with it.

BEAUTIFUL TAGS: a complete tutorial!

Hello friends,

 This is Anila over the blog today,
and i have some tags tutorial to share with you today,
using different techniques and mediums.

fk

 

 



Who doesn’t love tags… 🙂
Stampers have used tags for years to create mini works of art.
A tag is small that is not too  intimidating very easy and fun to create..
that is .. it’s okay, even if you mess up.
Tags are great for experimenting with new techniques, too.

 

So I created these three easy yet fun tags with stamps, inks,
sprays ,stencils and shimmer pastes…

Take sufficient amount of shimmer paste (Separate stencil and shimmer paste for each tag) and evenly spread it across/through the stencil.
The shimmer paste that i am using here is called,

step4
 
Repeat the same for all the three tags.
After applying a generous layer of the shimmer paste,
I let it air-dry. (You can heat-set it too!) 
(this is how they look…)

step5
 
 
Once dry I sprayed two of the tag with the coordinating shimmer sprays from my DT kit. (Spray each tag separately)
The shimmer pastes and shimmer sprays are extremely versatile and beautiful in itself.
The shimmer sprays that i used here are,
SHIMMER SPRAY-Grape juice and SHIMMER SPRAY-Sweet Pumpkin
(this is how they look…)

For the third tag, I coloured the background using distress ink. 
(Applying Distress inks on the craft mat and picked up the color with water brush)

step7
 
Let the tags dry again. 
(this is how they look…)

step8
 
Next, I started layering the tags with pollens and lots of flowers.

I tried to use the matching colored flowers and pollens for each tag.
Like this stem color tag with coordinating flowers…

step10
 
I stamped a seperate sentiment for each tag from Craftyscrappers stamp sets
and mounted them on the tag using foam adhesive.
I tied twines along with coordinating ribbon through the punched hole.
Lastly added matching sequins from craftyscrappers to add some elements.

Add Texture

Then I added the texture with Crafty Scrappers “Shimmer Paste” ( color – Dreams) using “Rose Bunch” stencil. You have to be very patient while doing this step…
I applied the Shimmer paste one side at a time and before applying it to another side ,
I let it air dry ( You can use heat gun to fasten this process :))

Shimmer sprays-The Mixed Media Way!

Hello Friends,

Today I am so excited…..
This is my first post for Craftyscrappers as a design team member.
I have a beautiful inspiration project –
A MIXED MEDIA CANVAS..
for you all where I have used a lot of Craftyscrappers products.

But before I talk more on these awesome products,
let me give you a glimpse of my work.
1
My inspiration behind this project are my two little princesses,
my daughters… Myra and Misha.
Possible image 1
A short HOW-TO,  make this piece:


step1

I used a canvas board as my base.
Then I applied a coat of Gesso all over the board.
On one of the corner,
I used Rose Bunch stencil from Craftyscrappers
cl1

with modelling paste and let it dry.

step2

I had an old crochet piece done by my mom which was little torn on half of one side…

crochet1

i used the other half to create a beautiful semicircle pattern running on side of the board.
I stuck this using multi medium matte glue.
After that I applied one coat of Gesso all over on the crochet piece.
step3
I made these flowers separately and colored them using distress inks.

2

Then they are hand molded to turn into blooms.
Center of flowers is enamel dots.
step4
Once all the Gesso is dried,
i started with my favorite activity with my favorite Craftycrappers release…
The Shimmer sprays
I have used a mix of 3 colors in sprays…

The effect is awesome….
I think my project is already speaking about the goodness of these sprays….
definitely a must try for all crafters and non crafters too.
step5
I have used heat tool to dry the sprays .
Then I used some quotes from “U SPARKLE” stamp set ….
(The stamp set that i used here is 5x5inch size, its the ideal size stamp set that can be used in all kinds of craft projects.)

sten1

 

Stamping with Craftyscrappers stamps is super cool…
as they are good with all surfaces.
I used black archival ink to do stamping.

step6

Lastly I have stuck some embellishments like beads, Inka gold, printed quotes from Prima marketing  , resin frame,mdf ruler embellishment and Stampendous gold luxe mix to enhance the beauty.
