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
Nakshatra Designs - Master and Mister Collection 6x6
Embossing Folder- Kaisercraft Diamonds
Kaisercraft Decorative Rectangle Die- Fancy Frame
Spellbinders Matting Basics A Die
Sizzix Framelits- Stephanie Bernard Sentiment Collection
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Archival Ink Vermillion
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.
The theme for this month is Masculine and Fathers Day is also around.Today for your inspiration I have a photo frame and a gift tag.I have tried combining some handmade flowers with sentiment tiles.Let me show you a quick picture of these.
1. Handmade photo frame
2. Papericious Sigma Cardstock
3. Papericious Crystal Clear powder
4. Leaf diecuts
6. Distress Ink
7. Penny Black Stamp
8. Rangers multi medium matte
9. Black Archival ink
10. Sentiment tiles
This time I worked with Papericious sigma cardstock to make these flowers.Coloring has been done with Distress inks.After that added Crystal Clear powder with the help of multi medium matte.I was pretty happy with the outcome.After attaching all this to photo frame,i attached sentiment tiles on the right hand top side.
On the tag,I have done distressing first and stamped the sentiment with Black Archival Ink and added diecut. This one was super quick.
Let me share some close ups of this now.

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 â€¦...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.
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.
Few days back I posted a mixed media project as my Dt inspiration for current May challenge on the blog.I got incredible response for my mixed media project.Lot of people were asking how I have done this.
So today I have a nice tutorial post for you all taking you to a tour of mixed media art.Mixed media art is anything where we combine various techniques in a single frame.Let me show you the frame first and then talk more on this.
For this frame I have a used a cardboard as my base and then have put white acrylic paint to cover as a coat on the cardboard.Once the white acrylic paint has dried I have done decoupage with modpodge and tissues.
Once my decoupage is done and dried ,I used a brick stencil to create a pattern on the cardboard.For this i used Modelling paste by Finnabair.I simply applied this paste on the surface with the help of a painting knife.This paste will dry in next 15 minutes.Be sure to was off this paste from the stencil.
After drying this is how the pattern will look like.
Now I started distressing the whole pattern with the help of distress inks.I have also used sprays by Papericious to give better effect on the pattern background.
Now this is how it looks after drying.
Time to embellish it with chipboard, flowers.metal embellishments and other accessories.I have stuck everything using Glossy accents glue.
