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…

4 GORGEOUS CARDS BY GDT Pratima Diwan: a step-by-step tutorial.

Hi , this is  Pratima Diwan, winner of Craftyscrappers Challenge#20″Love is in the air” and today i am so happy to be on Craftyscrappers blog, to share with you all, 4 of  the cards that i created as a Guest Designer here.

A LITTLE  ABOUT ME

“I am from  Delhi. I am a qualified postgraduate engineer. I am a mother of three children and an entrepreneur . I started crafting couple of years ago in my free time. I am now a passionate crafter and hope to start my own crafting venture soon.
Frankly speaking I am not into crafting since my childhood. But some how colours have always fascinated me.I remember how I used to create handmade greeting cards, envelopes and wall decors in my childhood. I think it is in my genes. My mom has been my inspiration. She used to knit sweaters and  embroidered to add personalized touch to whatever she created.I am a self taught crafter and I am very passionate about it. I recently took few professional classes as well. My work has found home in many states of India.”

MY CRAFTING STYLE:

I do not have any favourite crafting style but I love to create different things with my personalized touch to make it different from other creations. Whenever I get an order I request my costumer to allow me to experiment with it in my own way.
Though I do not get much time to craft but you can always find time for something you love. I hardly watch T.V or hang around with friends . I choose to craft whatever time I get.

MY INSPIRATION:

As i mentioned above that my parents and my sister  have been my biggest inspiration as they have always encouraged me.My kids and my husband has always appreciated my work . When I started crafting there were very few people in India who actually motivated me. To name few I was most influenced by the work of :

Rajni Chawla
Anita Kejriwal
Hussena calcuttawala
Manisha Khandelwal
Neha Bhatt
Erum Tasneem
Meiraj Zaidi 

MY VIEWS ABOUT craftyscrappers

Craftyscrappers has versatile range of products and I have been following craftyscrappers from past few months. They have beautiful collection of stamps and stencils and the best part is that they customize the stamp and stencil size according to our needs . It’s our own “Made in India “Brand and I have always taken pride in the products made in my own country and I always prefer to encourage the entrepreneurs from my own country . When they are working hard day and night to give us quality products of international standards then it is our duty to encourage them by taking pride in whatever good  they are doing .
I love their variety in designs and the themes of stamps which include Indian festival stamps as well . Moreover craftyscrappers provides us a great platform to showcase our talent with the world.

So before i begin with my inspirations, let me remind you,
Craftyscrappers fun and colorful challenge, challenge#21″FESTIVAL OF COLORS” is up and running,

(SPRITZING and MASKING TECHNIQUE)

A BRIEF TUTORIAL:

  • I took a 4×6 top folding card base.
  • Using some scrap papers I masked off the top and the bottom portion leaving the middle part open for distressing.
  • Using Peacock feathers and Cracked Pistachio distress oxides, I created the ocean effect on the card.
  • I took the “Clouds-n-waves stencil” , spritzed it with water and placed it on the distressed part.
  • Dabbed the excess water using a paper towel.
  • Gently, peel off the stencil.
  • The part of the stencil with water lightens the distressed color leaving behind wave effect.
  • Let it dry.
  • Stamped the cute images, the mermaid and the mystical whale from the stamp set, “You are so rare” and colored them with zig markers and fussy cut them all.
  • I trimmed 2 pieces of white card stock of the same size as the white parts on the card.
  • Foam mounted the white pieces on the card, after adhering the Whale image on the card and stamping the fishes using distress oxide.
  • Adhered the Mermaid image on top of the layers with foam adhesive supporting it from below.
  • Lastly, stamped the sentiment,from the same stamp set to complete the card.

  • For this card, I placed the stencil on the distressed part and using a baby wipe, lifted the color through the waves stencil.
  • Next, stamped the fishes in Archival ink.
  • Stamped the images, colored with zig markers and fussy cut them.
  • I trimmed the white pieces, but this time before mounting it with foam adhesive, I adhered a piece of acetate on them to create a see-through.
  • Adhered the whale image on the card and stamped other details.
  • Later, mounted the two white pieces, stamped the sentiment and adhered the Mermaid image on the card.
