Family Layout by DT Anila Dikay

Hello Crafters!


Anila here with an Inspiration Post for you all. 
Today, I am showcasing a "Family Layout". Making layouts is always fun. Every artist has a different technique or style and today I am going to show you how all of us can make an LO with minimal supplies and no fancy techniques. All one needs is an eye for composition. 

Here it is!



Steps Followed:
  • I took an 8x8 sized pattern paper. 
  • Layered it with another 6x6 family script pattern paper. 
  • Mounted the photo using foam adhesive and two pieces of coloured CS at the corners.
  • I adhered a lace at the bottom of the photograph. 
  • Adhered paper strips and washi tapes on one side. 
  • Next, I added the sentiment and the quote stickers. 
  • Lastly, covered the corners with flowers. 

Materials used are:

  • Pattern papers
  • Sentiment stickers
  • Washi tapes
  • Lace
  • Flowers


Few more close-ups of the Layout follows



    









All the above-mentioned materials are available at Rainbow Craftykari or can be pre-ordered by sending an e-mail to rainbowcraftykari@gmail.com or to info@rainbowcraftykari.in

CAS Cards-Tutorial by DT Priyanka

Hi Lovely People,

Hope you are enjoying the lovely onset of winters? Well, I am most definitely enjoying it with a hot cup of tea all snuggled up in my cosy blanket ;)
There is definitely something amazing about this season with the winter chill, celebration & wedding vibes all around which makes it a December to Remember always.. as they say, "last one but the best one" .. ;)

Without boring you anymore with my love for winters I will take you straight to today's post.

Today I am sharing two CAS cards with you (CAS: Clean & simple Cards), CAS cards are a challenge for me as much as it for most others but this time I decided to do a tutorial on it for you I hope I do justice to your expectations :)

Let's begin

Card 1: 

Step 1: I started with taking a white cardstock, Base dimension: 4.5"X10" & scored it at 5" & now my card measures 4.5"X 5"


Step2: Next I stamped my images Piggy & the fence using Versa onyx ink on a separate cardstock & coloured using the DUO watercolour pencils& fussy cut them.




Step3: I adhered the fence right in the middle of the card using the double-sided foam tape & then the piggy half over it.



Step 4: Lastly, to complete the card I picked the sentiment "I miss you PIG time" & using the Versafine Onyx black ink I stamped the sentiment right below the fence. 



Tada our first card is ready :D easy ain't it??? ;)

 



Moving onto the 2nd Card:


Step1: I again picked the cardstock in the size 4.5"x10" & scored it at 5" to make my card measuring 4.5"X5", I also cut out a cardstock in 4.25"x4.75"




Step2: using my VersaFine Onyx Black ink I stamped images using Clearly Besotted stamp set- I stamped with the animals at the bottom, with just the faces, to give it a look of the animals peeking out and picked the sentiment from the same stamp set & stamped it on a separate tag.




Step3: Using DUO watercolour pencils I coloured the stamped images & distressed the edges of the card stock.




Step4: Using an orange gingham print washi tape I added it above the animals & adhered my stamped sentiment using the double-sided Foam tape



Step5: Lastly I adhered the cardstock to my scored & folded card & Lalala! the card is ready!

 


Here are some more pictures:

Altered Jars by Blog Coordinator Aditi Mahajan

Hello everyone,

Hope you've kickstarted your December with enthusiasm! After the Diwali month, December is my personal favourite because of the cheer you get to see around the world! 

Keeping up with this festive spirit, today I am back with an Inspiration post for you. I have also incorporated the December Challenge in my creation. I used the colours Red and Green, Snowflake and Glitter.


I have altered two glass jars which make great gifts for Christmas. I personally have been flaunting them at home. To alter them this time, I decided to use techniques of paper crafting rather than mixed media. 

Here's a look at the Jars:



To make these begin by choosing three to four pattern papers. Cut one to go around the circumference of the jars. Distress the edges and stick it. Next, cut two narrow strips for a different pattern to layer on top. Die cut a circle for the lid. Use glitter cardstock, and die-cut a snowflake element to decorate the lid. Embellish it with flowers and other die cut elements. You could go on with layering and embellish as per your imagination and liking. Fill them with cookies, chocolates, brownie and more for Christmas Gifts. Like you see, they are quick and easy to make so you can create multiple of these at once. 

Here are some more pictures:







Supplies used:

  • Glass Jars
  • DCWV Paper Stacks- Cranberry Christmas 12x12", The Heirloom Christmas 12x12", Glitter Cardstock 6x6"
  • Heartfelt Creations Die- Snow Kissed Flake
  • Nested Circles Die
  • Cherylynn Die- Flourish #8
  • Distress Ink- Black Soot
  • Liquid Glue


Hope you're inspired to create yours! Do participate in our ongoing challenge

Happy Crafting!
