For this project I have used lot of awesome supplies from Craftyscrappers.
A brief description:
On how to create this Mixed Media Home Decor
  • For this project,I took a simple silver card stock and applied some Ash shimmer paste and let it dry.
  • Once its dried I run it through an embossing folder.Then I stuck this sheet to cardboard.
  • For second layer I took a gift wrapping shimmery sheet and again embossed it with same folder,then stuck that on top of base with help of double sided tape.
  • After that I stuck a window die cut from one of the pattern papers.
  • Next I used Craftyscrappers “IM Stuck On U” stamp set to stamp and water color these beautiful succulents.I did fussy cutting to these stamps and again attached with double sided tape.
  • The sentiment is a metal embellishment stuck on a background created using same ash shimmer paste and some blue and green metallic paints.

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

FUN FOILS CARDS: a brief tutorial!

Hello Friends…
 
Hope you had an awesome weekend..
 
Here I’m back at Craftyscrapper’s blog with some fun cards using
Craftyscrappers FUN FOILS and SHIMMER PASTES ...
nj

This is the first time I’ve used foil in my cards and I really love the outcome…..
Craftyscrappers shiny transfer foils are professional grade and are proudly made in INDIA, and these super glitzy foils , add Stunning Sparkle and shine to your craft projects.

What stopped me till now was the investment in laminator machine for foiling….
But these fun foils are really fun to work with.
You don’t need any fancy tools for this..
They can be used with a lamination machine and also work like a charm with Big shot and Cuttlebug machines, where you do not need heat to transfer the foils to your craft surfaces.
