Tropical Card Tutorial by DT Shylaa Shree

Hello Crafters!

Its Shylaa here to share a step by step mixed media card tutorial. Mixed media art is total fun as there is no criteria fixed and innovation is endless to work with.

The challenge this month is a Earthy mood board,I was totally flaunted by the colors. Though it is a tutorial post, i did not want to miss to try my hand with the color. 


Image may contain: indoor


Here is my card.



Here is the tutorial to create this mixed media card.

Step One is to create a base layer for your card, Take the cardstock(for my 4.5"X6" - card base, my cardfront is of 4"X5.5"). Coat a layer of gesso and allow it to dry. Then scrap the edges of the card with knife.




Step Two- is to add depth and variety to your card with paint layers. I have used Camlin fabrica acrlic paints and spray inks for this.






Step three is to add text to your cards now. I have used HLS - thinking of you - script stamp and randomly stamped on the coloured panel.





Step four is to add textures to your cards. i have used Heidi swapp spray stencil and Sakura modeling paste to textures






Step five is to embellish these cards as you desire .I have added stitched oval diecut from Gina k Designs to card panel with foam tape to add dimensions.





Embellishments which i have used are Handmade rose from flower die, flourish from cherrylynn dies, leaves from altnew wild hibiscus, jute twine, pearl strings, white ribbon & feathers.


Step six is Splatter with black water colour with paint brush 




You are done!

Money Box Envelope Tutorial by GDT Vinita Jain

Hello, crafty Friends!

Vinita here, and this is my first GD post, at Rainbow Cratykari! I am so thrilled and will be showing you a project to inspire you with the Month's Challenge!!! Thank you Maninder and the Team! Today, I am showing you an envelope box gifting idea for a newly wed couple!



I created a money box envelope using a lot of mixed media products, a card and lot of journaling tags for pics and writing messages!!! And I had so much fun making them very first time! 😊

This creation is inspired by this month's beautiful mood-board which has these tropical colors, patterns, and textures, wood grain effect, different leaves in green hues!




Let's see how I made this: 


 

The envelope box is a pre cut template. And I decorated the front cover in Mixed media style! I took a honey comb stencil and applied paste. I then, randomly stamped some script for the style!


 

These are chippies from Papericious which I heat embossed with various embossing powders.




 

I die cut some different size leaves in various shapes. I used foam flowers and I highlighted the center of the flowers with some golden glitter applying clear glue. I die cut the word 'congrats' from 3 different shades(2 each) to make a stack.



 

The cover is not complete!


 

I added a lot of journaling tags measuring 7.5"X 3.8" in size using Martha Stewart scoring board. You can fit a beautiful decor and choose the most memorable pics to add the tags with handwritten messages to make those moments more precious.

 

 

This is a card for newly wed couple. I embossed it and highlighted only two big rose flowers using my watercolor pencils. Then embellished it and added a die cut sentiment.

 


 

This is inside view for the message and some heart tags, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it. Using Resist technique, I gave it an ombre effect inking. 

 

 

Using a border Die I cut those panels for one of the journaling tags.


 

I then covered it with PP, attached some doily, added 3D stickers and die cuts!


 

This is the back part of the envelope box.

Love- Photo Frame by DT Mounika

Hello everyone,

I am Mounika and I am so happy to be on Rainbow Craftykari Blog with my Inspiration Post.


Everyone loves to treasure memories in a special way, and if those memories are with our kids they are all the more special! To treasure such special memories with my son who will turn 3 this August, I  made this frame.



To begin with, using Papericious black gesso I primed the frame. I then traced down the shape of the frame on a piece of pattern papers and cut it. I have used the Aazealian paper stack from Papericious's latest collection. I then stuck down the pattern paper and cut down the extras. To add some texture I used a bubble stencil with texture paste. Once it was dry I took small pattern papers and roughly arranged them. Once I was happy with the arrangement, I glued everything down. For the embellishments, I used a chipboard heart coloured using blue and yellow chalk paint. On the yellow hearts, I added glitter.



The main focal flower was made using Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp and then shaped, the "love" sentiment embellishment was coloured using Prima Art Alchemy waxes. I used the same on the frame as well to highlight the texture at places. 


Here are some close ups:









Materials used:

  • MDF frame
  • Papericious- Black Gesso

Family Layout Tutorial & Video Tutorial by Blog Co-ordinator Aditi Mahajan

Hello Everyone,


A very happy September! With the beginning of a new month, we have a wonderful new challenge!


Today I'm here to share an easy to make Layout Tutorial with you all which is also an inspiration for our challenge this month.


Many craft brands come up with coordinated sets/kits. Most often we end up buying the paper pack alone and using it and then in a future date we end up buying the die cut/embellishments and use them individually. However, have you realised how worthy it would be to invest in the entire kit and use it in your projects? Sometimes we are creating an album, a layout, a card, and using all the coordinated elements leads to a great creation.


In my layout today, I will be using one such kit from Kaisercraft- The Golden Grove Collection. All the elements go so well together, that within minutes a quick layout can be created.


Let's begin...



Step1: First begin by choosing a photo and a base paper. 



Step 2: Choose a contrasting pattern paper to mount the photo on. Here I have kept it a 1/4" bigger than the photo on all sides. Stick the photo on the paper. Add some depth to the entire photo mat with waste chipboard/cardboard. Distress the edges of the paper.



Step 3: This Paper Pack has one sheet with flower clusters. So I fussy cut those from the sheet. Usually, every paper pack has one such pattern from which elements can be fussy cut. 


 

 

Step 4: Use a stencil and add some texture with modelling paste. 



Step 5: Pick inks of the colours on your base paper. Here I used distress inks. Randomly add some colour on your paper, especially to blend in the texture. Ensure to leave some texture white as that adds extra interest. Distress the edges of the base paper.


              


Step 6: Add more interest with stamping. Choose one colour that dominates the background colours (in this case green) and black. Stamp randomly around the focal image using two background stamps.


    

               

Step 7: Layer and play with the fussy cut elements, the collectables (die cut elements coordinated with the sheet) and the wooden collectables. Stick some with glue and some with foam tape. Run the blade of the scissors on the edges, to give the flowers and leaves some dimension. Pick a title from the collectables. 



Step 8: Complete the layout with some splatter in white and green.







Since this is a layout, and it's difficult to merely read instructions, I created a video tutorial for you all :-)! Click here
