Hello Friends,
 
This is Priyanka over the blog today,

Here’s a look at the completed layered card:

The best part is it is really easy to make and yet unique in its design,

Possible image 1

So so let’s start with the process of making it….
(* picture heavy post!)

step1
 
Take a piece of acetate and select the shades of shimmer pastes to be used,
here I picked two shades “Dreams” & Envy”  from Craftyscrappers to get two different shades.
step2
Then using the   French Script stencil”  , took sufficient amount of shimmer paste and applied the shimmer pastes to the acetate sheet.
 
Next I picked an orange card from the cards set again from the store,
these have bright shades to choose from and are thick enough to handle layers and other mediums.

Isn’t it looking pretty? I loved the outcome on acetate.
step3
I decided to make a window on the card to fit the acetate sheet, so cut out a rectangular piece out of the card

Added the acetate to the cut out using both sided tape from the back side. 
 
step4
Next sprayed Shimmer Spray –Sweet Sunshine”  on a piece of pattern paper.
I must say these sprays are so perfect, they spread beautifully and just little is needed to spray; they give nice intense color.

Mounted this to a brown cardstock and tied a twine to it.
Added this tag to my card.

colored it using faber castell connector pens.

Added this image to a piece of brown card-stock using double sided foam tape. 
step7
Stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set and added this to the card.

Lastly added few rhinestones and drew black stitched lines around the window, using black gel pen.

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.

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…

 Here’s a look at the completed tags:

So lets begin with the tutorial…
(* picture heavy post!)

step1
 
To begin with, I took white colored ready tags…
You can even cut them from a white Cardstock,
of any size to create your own custom sized tags.

Ready made TAGS
step2

Took the tag, secured it on the table with washi tape.
Then Secure the stencil over the tag with washi tape.
The stencil that i have used for this tag is from craftyscrappers
and its called,
create-a-scene(sunburst)
cc-stnl-12_694x768
CREATE-A-SCENE(SUNBURST)
step3

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…)

step6
 
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.
 7
step9
 
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.

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.

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.)

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.
