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!

Altered Glass and Altered Photo Frame Tutorial By GD Vinita Jain


Hello Everyone,

This is Vinita here, I am delighted to be guest designing this month with Rainbow Craftykari Store. Today, I'll be teaching two projects Mixed Media Altered Projects.

Let's Begin

In this project, I have added a gift with the Photo Frame, so this is a bonus project for all of you. I altered a glass container which has a lid into this beautiful decor piece!!!


Now let me show the steps how I created this MM altered art!


Step 1.

Take any plastic container, clean it properly from any stains or dust particles and dry it. Now apply spray paint on it. But for precaution keep the container in any box/carton and cover the glass with the spray paint. You can wear gloves too. Now let it dry for half an hour or little more.


Step 2:

I used different types of embellishments in this creation. In a picture frame, silicon mold using clear glue sticks and heat glue gun filled this mold.

Let it dry, hardly took 15 minutes. If you don't have glue gun and sticks you can also use dry clay which can be easily molded into any shape you wanted. Here I used it for a 3D baby mold, cover the space tightly as shown in the picture. Let it dry in the air, took one hour to dry properly.


Step3:

Now take out these embellishments from the mold carefully. Time to color them I used some alcohol inks, Fevicryl Pearl colors, some Inka gold from Viva in different colors.


Step 4.

The Inka Gold colors are so versatile you can apply them on any embellishment, it can even be diluted in water too. Here as shown in the pic, I first applied Gesso on all these embellishments using sponge, then the impact of color will be more bright and if you use black Gesso, it will create different textures. On the metal embellishments, I used a spray, Inka Gold, alcohol inks and burnished them with gold color for detailing work after drying. Even I applied Gesso to my trims to make them little thicker and applied different inks.

I applied Gesso on bamboo sticks and one of the pencil too.


Step 5:

On the glass container to create textures, I give it a coat of gesso and using a comb created a wood panel look. Now burnished the different mediums to highlight the details as shown in the pic.


Step 6:

Now start embellishing it. Using my glue gun I attached all the embellishments easily.


I added lots of different paper flowers, blings, jewel stones, fillers and added a sentiment too which I covered it with Inka Gold mediums. Now using tacky glue gel I spread crystal clear sparkle too.


This is the top, I covered it with a lace, pearl string, a beautiful trim butterfly and other embellishments.


Here is the Final pic!


Here is the Video I have made of MM Altered Art

Next Project is Altered Photo Frame, giving it a uniqueness and make great gifts!

I love Mixed Media art....Throwing on the layers, textures and just having fun! Blue is my favorite color and I added some gold with lots of blue hues! You will see some of the metal embellishments, chippies, handmade flowers, doilies and stencilling peeking through!




The first thing I covered the chipboard frame with a coat of white gesso. After drying, I applied cheese cloth all over using Mod Podge.


Here what it looks like before adding gesso and sprays. I roughly set up all the things on this frame and took a photo. Now added texture paste using some stencils for textures, Arranged all the embellishments, charms, different flowers, MDF flourishes and many more things according to my need and again applied a layer of gesso.


Now applied lots of layer of different inks, spray, Viva gold, glitters etc. At the bottom layer, I pasted a sequins lace too. For more textures and interest, I added microbeads in two varieties randomly, added a cute tiny heart, jewelled stone at the lamp post. Added a string of pearls inside the edges of photo panel.


Some close ups:



I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful photo frame creation!

Book Card & Stamped Envelope Tutorial by DT Pavitra Chanchal

Hello My Dear Friends


I am back and as usual very excited to be here on this platform. Today I have two lovely projects to share with you guys. After a real long time I wanna to play with cardstock and pattern paper so I created a cute little book card and cash envelope which is an excellent way of gifting small things with personalized touch. They make an excellent way of presenting return gifts for children’s birthday party and can be resized easily depending upon the requirement so let’s get started. But first have a look at the project.



From the outside it looks like a tiny book and inside it has space for gift.




Below you will find the instructions : Cut black cardstock 6 x 10 inch.



Score at 5 inch – 1 inch – 5 inch as shown in above image using scoring board and fold.



Cut two pieces of black cardstock measuring 6 x 4 and 5 x 4 inches.



Score at every 1 inch and fold in a zigzag way mimicking alphabet M OR W. Overlap them together forming a frame (as shown in below pic) and paste the edges with glue.



Center it inside the book cover and paste with tacky glue or tape.



Cover with pattern paper and attached a ribbon for closure. For the outside I placed a filigree die cut out, a resin lady embellishment in the center and finish off with a flower and a sentiment cutout.





Stamped Envelope Tutorial


Secondly I have a stamped envelope made from scratch for you to go with the Book Card, have a look!!!



Let's Start, Firstly Cut red cardstock 11 x 9-1/2 and score at 4 , 8 fold (on longer side i.e 11 inches).



Score 1 inch on both the sides (from smaller side i.e. 9-1/2) and fold.



Trim the 1 inch portions form both the flaps leaving the center portion as shown in below pic.



Fold the flaps inward, round the upper edges as shown and paste with glue as shown in below pics.



Cut iris sheet 270 GSM 7-1/4 x 3-3/4 inches



Dab distress ink aged mahogany, spiced marmalade, fired brick, abandoned coral on nonstick mat, spritz with water and place iris sheet on top of it.



To make it splotchier, I tried spritzing archival ink red carnation with liquid sanitizer, since it contains alcohol it helps the archival ink to move and believe me I really loved the outcome.



Next I stamps big maple leave from just right stamp set, using spiced marmalade, vintage photo and aged mahogany distress inks.



I first applied spiced marmalade on the entire leave, than aged mahogany on the outer sides and vintage photo on the extreme edges.



Using the smaller leaves from same set I fill up the empty space and stamp the leaves using aged mahogany and vintage photo distress inks.


Lastly I stamp a tiny postage stamp with vintage photo distress ink and finish off my background.


Paste it on top of cardstock envelope base with tacky glue.


I die cut iris paper with spellbinder die set using the smallest dies, colored them with distress ink – spiced marmalade and layered them on top of each other with 3D tape.


On the top most layer I applied a layer of clear glitter with glossy accent and finally placed it in the center of the envelope



I hope you like this tutorial and will try to make one for yourself.
