FUN WITH SHIMMER PASTES N ACETATE:A layered card.

Hello Friends,
 
This is Priyanka over the blog today,
and I am going to share a tutorial on a fun layered card
with the twist of using acetate & shimmer pastes along!

FG

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

4

 
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.

step5
 
Mounted this to a brown cardstock and tied a twine to it.
Added this tag to my card.

step6
Stamped a cute Hog image using the stamp set “Hogs and Kisses” and
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.

So lets begin with the tutorial…

step3

Apply the shimmer paste, evenly all over the cardstock and once done,
pick the extra and keep it in the bottle.
(That way there is less wastage.)

step4

Remove the Stencil slowly n allow it to dry.
You can  air dry it or you can use a heat tool to dry it.
I prefer air dry method for this effect.
(this is how it will look…)

step5
Then I took a piece of Orange Cardstock measuring 4.5″×11″inches in size.
and folded it in half scoring at 5.5″ on 11″ side.
I adhered a matching ribbon and pearls on the embossed panel
and using red tacky tape I adhered it to the Orange Cardstock.

step6

I stamped a thank you sentiment using my Archival ink and completed the card.

I’ve also used lilac shimmer paste to make another variant for the card.

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…

 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,
 2
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…)
3
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…)
 
4
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…
8
 
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.

step1
Prepare Surface

I took a empty glass Jar, cleaned it’s surface properly and applied a coat of gesso.
A layer of gesso makes the surface ready for painting. 

 

Empty jar and gesso (before)


 
After one coat of gesso
step2
Paint the background
 
Once dried, I painted its surface with white chalk paint ( you can use acrylics too) using sponge and let it air dry.
 

 
After applying chalk paint
 
step3
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 :))
