Masculine Card Tutorial

Hello Crafters,

Today we have a quick and easy card tutorial for you based on the theme of the month. This is a fun and easy card that you can make utilising your dies and embossing folders.

Here's a look at the card


Supplies used:

  • Nakshatra Designs - Master and Mister Collection 6x6
  • Embossing Folder- Kaisercraft Diamonds
  • Kaisercraft Decorative Rectangle Die- Fancy Frame

  • Sizzix Framelits- Stephanie Bernard Sentiment Collection
  • White Cardstock
  • Vintage Photo Distress Ink
  • Archival Ink Vermillion
  • Scoreboard
  • Foam Tape
You could use any dies and embossing folder that you have.

First, prepare your base. Score a 8"x 12" cardstock at 6" on the 12" side. Fold and this makes your card base.



Next, cut a 6" patterned paper at 5 1/2" . Use another patterned paper at cut 1 1/2" x 5 1/2". Distress the edges of both these pieces using distress ink. 

 



Emboss the above two pieces using any embossing folder.


Next, using assorted pattern papers, cut different sizes with your dies. 


Once done, play around with your arrangement and begin adhering everything with foam tape. Most paper packs also come with some element sheets. So you can cut out some elements and use them as well to complete your card. 




Hope you enjoyed this easy tutorial!

Altered Bottle project by GDT Hema

Hi Dearies.....


I have a new altered project to share with you and the supplies used here would be from Crafts Need a place for all our crafty need.  I have used Magnolia and Animal print card stock from DCWV from the store and other crafty supplies.


In today's project I have used a empty box of Jack Daniel.  So let's start the tutorial for the same and alter this box together.Let me share some close ups of the bottle before that.




 
I have picked two 12x12 scrapbook sheets, which co-ordinate with each other for this project. I picked one animal prints and one plain thick card stock for this project.  I covered the box with pattern paper …...here I wanted make a corset dress form so I measured a inch gap and punched holes and inserted eyelets and fixed it. Later I took a silk twine and inserted into the eyelets and stuck the box.  




 Next I covered the box with plain CS which matches the pattern paper.  I stuck it and gave a fold at the edges and stuck some lace and pearls around and decorated the box.
Now after I finished embellishing I die cut CS and further decorated it....as shown in the pics.
  This is how I decorated the altered box.  Hope you guys liked it and would surely give a try.  This box can be used for gifting as candle box, for artist brushes....ideas are many...and choices too.


Will be joining with you all very soon.
Lots of love and Happy crafting
Hema

Quilling Tutorial

Hello everyone,

Today we are on the blog with something different that our usual. We tried our hands on quilling and it was easy using the kits available on the site.

We've made this card and we'll take you through the basic shaping used for this one.


We used the Advanced Quilling Kit from the store and it looks like this.

From the kit, we will be using these tools. 



Cut one of the strips into a half.


Insert one end of the strip into the holding tool, and keep your thumb as a support to hold the point. With the dominant hand rotate the tool towards yourself. With this, the strip starts coiling on the head of the tool.  
 

Place the coil on the board, depending on the size you want.


Pick it out and add glue to one end, and lightly press the coil to form a tear drop shape. 

 


We made these of different sizes and colours. Size can be increased by using the full strip and placing it in a bigger circle on the board. 

 

Next, we used the crimping tool. Run a strip of paper in the tool to achieve the crimped look. We used one such strip for the border of the dress. Then use another strip in a similar way and coil it. While sticking the ends, pinch both ends to form a diamond. 

 

 

 


For the hat, join two strips of paper and coil in the same manner. After setting it, stick one end and pinch it inwards on that side. 


 

 



All these can then be arranged on your surface and decorated with stones. We used these to make the clothes of our Prima Doll Stamped Image. We completed the card with some layering and flowers. 




Hope you're inspired to try this craft form!
