card using the stamp set

Snail mail for you

 

ST-BD-37.jpg

This stamp set is super cute, and has four adorable snails, mushroom, grass, a mail, a beautiful flower, a mail pouch along with beautifully coordinated sentiments to go with and I must say that the quality of their stamps is very good which leave a crisp  and clear image when stamped on.

Cut a small rectangular window in the middle of the Woodgrain cardstock as per your choice.

Create a background on a piece of another white cardstock which will come below this rectangular cut out window.For this, cut a hill pattern on a masking sheet, place it on the cardstock.

Make a sky using Broken China and Mermaid lagoon distress inks.

Similarly create a green background using Cracked pistachio and evergreen bough distress inks.

This is how it will look, once the masked and un-masked areas are inked/distressed.

step6.jpg

 

step6

Stamp the images from the “Snail mail for you” stamp set using Black archival ink on a white paper…

step7.jpg

 

and colour them using distress inks and water and fussy cut them.
(You can use any coloring medium here, such as, water colors, markers,paints anything that you have in your stash.)

This is how mine looks, once colored…

Adhere the sky-land background on the folded white cardstock base, foam mount the Woodgrain texture card on top of it and foam mount the fussy cut images.

And finally finish the card, by stamping the sentiment ” Wishing you Happy trails” from the same stamp set and you are done!
Here i have used black archival ink again for stamping my sentiment onto the card.

  • You are gonna need,Blank tags, Stencil,Texture paste,Craftyscrappers shimmer sprays “Dancing peacock”, and “Sweet Sunshine”,Coconut fiber,Handmade flowersand Craftyscrappers Stamp set “Beautiful” to start with.
  • I took blank stamp and spread texture paste through stencil to build a background.
  • Once it dries completely I colored the tag using shimmer sprays “Dancing peacock”, “Sweet Sunshine”,
  • I tilted the tag bit so that both the color flow into each other and blend nicely.
  • I distress the edges of tag using dark green stamp pad and added black colored coconut fiber.
  • Stamped the image from Stamp set “Beautiful” and colored it using diluted acrylic paints with water
  • Glue down stamped image onto the fiber that pasted earlier and also added handmade flowers forming a composition, and Taaaa-Daaaaaaa, we finish this super simple tag.

CUTE HAPPY SUMMER SLIDER CARD: a step-by-step tutorial- Dt Sweety Gupta

Hello friends,
Sweety here, Creative Designer @craftyscrappers with a tutorial for a cute slider card,
that doesn’t need a die or any special equipment.

 

blog featrured header.jpg

 

 Craftyscrappers has come out with really cute critters
stamps in the month of June and My favorite among them is the

 

HAPPY SUMMER” stamp set

 

ST-ANL-26.jpg

featuring really cute hippos in fun summery clothes.

 

 

But before I start, let me tell you our challenge for the month of JULY is ongoing,
if you have missed the previous post check it out here:

Here’s the final look of the card I made using the stamp set:

 

sweety gupta-slidercard1.jpg

 

 

Untitled-1.png

 

 

 

step1.png

 I started out with stamping images that I needed in black archival ink. This ink is permanent and does not smudge, so I can easily color the images using Touch New alcohol markers.

 

step1.jpg

 

 

 

step2.png

I fussy cut all the images. It’s easier to cut after coloring rather than the other way around. Do not forget to cut out the center of the swimming ring.

 

step2.jpg

 

 

 

 

step3.png

 
  Next, I kept the rectangular floater somewhere in the middle on my card panel and drew some random lines to give shape to the pool.
step3.jpg
step4
Keep some gap between the floater and the lines to make sure you have room for the slider element to work.
step4.jpg
step5
 

  It’s time to color the panel. I did some basic blending. Did you know Distress oxides blend beautifully with so many other types of colours including pigment inks? I spritz some water to give the blue panel more watery look.

step5.jpg

 

 
 
step6

 Now onto the technical part. You will need 2 small sized 1 rupee coin (the new ones, I find the old 1 rs coins to be a tad bit bigger.). Start with cutting out 2 parallel lines for the slider to work, and trim it out. There’s no need to be precise but just try getting neat edges coz they will be visible. Add foam adhesive to the coin such that it fits nicely into the slit. Remove the backing and add the other coin.

 

step6.jpg
 
 
I hope the photos made the step very clear. It’s easy, isn’t it?
 
step7.png
All that’s left to do is to add our cut outs to the panel and of course, some final touches. This included adding touches of Sakura 3D gel pen to the mustache dots on the hippo, and a few white highlights.
SLIDER CARD.jpg
I also added glossy accents to the pool ring.
 

Here’s a quick boomerang video of how the card slider mechanism works.

 

 
 

So That’s all from my end today.I hope you like this bright, happy, summery card.
