Waterfall Folio Album tutorial by GDT Karthikha

Hello Crafty Folks,


This is Karthikha here at RCS and today I'm sharing with you a tutorial on how to make a waterfall folio album. Sit back and enjoy the long post :)


Want a sneak peek?




Step 1: To start with, you will need 2 chipboard pieces, each measuring 8 ½ x 4 ½ inches. For the spine, take a chipboard piece measuring 8 ½ x ¾ inches. I’ve used 950gsm chipboard, but you can go with a lighter one as well




Step 2: Choose your favourite patterned paper for the outside of the album and trim it down to 10 ½ x 12 inches. I’ve used the floral papers from Papericious – Perfect Affair paper pack. Score this sheet at 1 inch on all the sides.



Step 3: Apply tacky tape on the edges and inside of the chipboards and place them as shown in the pic. Align the bigger pieces along with the score line on the patterned paper and stick them. Then place the center piece with some gap between the 2 bigger pieces and stick. 

Tip: This gap should be double the width of your chipboard and it allows the album to be folded.




Step 4: Once the chipboards are in place, cut along the corners and fold the patterned paper around the pieces along the scored lines, to form the hardcover of the album. Make sure to press the corners inside to get a neat finish. Apply tacky tape to the edges of the chipboard and the edges of the patterned paper. Fold along the creases and bind them together. Fold and fix the top and bottom first, before the side flaps.





Step 5: Cover the inner layer with a patterned paper measuring 8 ⅛ x 9 ⅝ inches. Score along the gaps in between the chipboard and fold them to form the album cover.




Step 6: For the waterfall folios, start with a base cardstock of size 7 ¾ x 4 inches. I’ve chosen iris cardstock 230gsm. Use a large corner round punch to give the base a rounded corner. Attach it to the right side of the album, eyeballing it in the middle.



Step 7: For the flaps, take 7 pieces of cardstock (iris used here) measuring 4 x 4 ½ inches. Score them at 4 inches on the wider side and fold the ½ inch flap. The flap will be glued, so punch rounded corners on the other side, that becomes the bottom of the flap in the waterfall folio.




Step 8: Apply tacky tape/glue on the ½ inch flap and align them along the top base of the album. Start from the top and proceed by adhering one flap below the other.




Once all the 7 flaps are attached, it should look like this.



Step 9: For matting the flaps, take 15 pieces of patterned paper, each measuring 3 ¾ x 3 ¾ inches.

Round the corners and attach them to each of the flaps – front and back. The last one will have only the front side.



Step 10: To cover up the small spaces in between flaps, take 7 pieces of patterned paper of size 3 ¾ x ⅜ inches and glue them. The waterfall folio is complete.


Step 11: For the left side, I decided to keep a pocket, but wanted it to be transparent. So I have diecut a frame using Gina Marie scallop stitched nested rectangles from the same paper pack, and attached acetate on the inside. Apply glue on the edges on 3 sides and attach to the left of the album, leaving the top side open for the pocket. I created 2 simple tags for the pockets from the same pp.



Step 12: Now for the closure mechanism, I used a cardstock measuring 3 ¾ x 1 inches, and matted with a patterned paper of size 3 ⅝ x ⅞ inches. Roll this flap around a bottle, I used my spritzer, to get the curved shape.



Step 13: Attach tacky tape to one end of the flap, and a magnet to the other end. The tacky tape part will be adhered to the backside of the album and magnet on the front.




Step 14: Measure the center of the album, and attach the closure flap carefully. Mark the position of the magnet in the flap on the front side and attach another magnet on the top of the album front. Take care to check the poles and they are the attractive sides.


I decorated the front of the album, in a way the magnet is covered. I’ve used a scallop circle diecut from Gina Marie scallop stitched nested circles dies, attached a doily distressed with Picked Raspberry, and used flowers for the central part. In order to cover the magnetic flap, I’ve used another flower that also serves to hold the flap and open easily. I’ve used corner charms for the opposite corners to complete the album.


And now here are the final pics! :)

Watercolor Cards Tutorial by GDT Ria Banerjee

Hello all,

Ria on this side. Today, I have brought some watercolor cards for you people. I know sometimes people find it hard to do CAS cards. I have tried to explain everything step by step so that your inspirations can leave us in awe.

Project 1: Bleaching Watercolor

This is a technique which many of you may be afraid of attempting, but trust me this is super fun. (Check the Materials Pic below)


Cut a cardstock diagonally and ink with distress inks. Dark colors are preferable.

Let it dry or heat dry it.
 

Apply anti-static powder on it.

Now choose any stamp that has some good outlines. Here, I have taken Renee Leaves by Winnie and Walter. Stamp it with Versamark and apply clear embossing powder. Heat dry it completely using Heat Tool.

Take a pinch of bleaching powder with a little amount of water and apply it inside the stamped outlines with the help of a brush.


Give some time the bleaching powder to react.
After that, Paste the cardstock with the bleached background on to a blank white notecard
 

I have finished the card with die cuts and sentiments from Sizzix Thinlits and Adorable Elephant by MFT respectively.


Here is another project inspired by the same technique.



PROJECT 2 : Watercolor and Embossing Folder



For this card,


I took the Geometric Embossing Folder and embossed the cardstock with the same in a bigshot machine.



Take a cardstock and color it with distress ink with some water. You can give an ombre look of any color. I have used three colors, Wilted violet, Blue sketch and Ocean reef/Mermaid lagoon as shown in the pic


I have colored the elephant with Artistry ink Aged stucco. I have dabbed some ink from the inkpad on the craft table, with the help of water and brush I have colored the image. One tip I would like to give that you have to be quick when coloring with distress inks as they leave some lines when get dried. The stamping has to be with Archival ink to prevent Blotting.


I have taken Gina Marie Circular Die to cut the panel. Preserve the cut out to use it for another card.
Then paste the embossed cardstock on to a blank white notecard using any white glue of your choice.
In the end, I have stamped some more images, colored and fussy cut from Adorable Elephants from MFT. Adhered them on to the panel with the sentiment from the same set.




Materials Used:


• White cardstock (Brustro WaterColor - 200gsm)
• Distress inks ( Bluesketch, Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon)
• WOW Clear embossing powder- Semi Dull
• Paintbrushes
• Glitter paper- Silver
• Sizzix thinlit die- Wishes
• Adorable Elephants by MFT
• Enamel Dots ( black and blue)
• Geometric Embossing folders by We R Memory keepers
• Gina Marie stitched circle die set
• Glossy Accent by Ranger
• Ranger White Embossing Powder

Decoupage on MDF Box with Easel Card Tutorial by DT Nikkita Sethi

Hello Crafters,

Nikkita here again on India's Best Papercrafting Blog that's Rainbow Craftykari Blog. Hope you all are doing great. Often you want to decoupage the MDF Box with pattern papers but many doubts arises, Today in our Teaching and Learning program, I'm going to share step by step tutorial Decoupage on MDF Box using Pattern Papers. Also I'm going to share one more tutorial on how to prepare an Easel card, which is going to be inside in it and it will become an Wonderful gift to present to your loved ones. It's going to be lengthy post, so sit back and grab your favorite summer drink.

Decoupage Box with Pattern Paper:

Step 1
Take MDF box of 6"x6" size. I have bought mine from Rainbow Craftykari Store. It has good finishing and of highest quality. Clean it completely using fine sand paper. Shake off the dust thoroughly.


Step 2
Apply Light Coat of Gesso to all over the box, Coat only once. Let it dry completely or Heat Dry it using heat tool.


I'm using Prima Rossibelle Pattern paper, so i have picked the color from it, then apply DecoArt Reminisce chalkboard paint using sponge or brush, chalkboard paints give a smooth and neat finish and dries quickly.


Step 3
For 6by6 inches box, have cut the pattern papers into 5.75inches leaves a 0.25 inch gap which shows the background color of the box and distressed the pattern papers with Black soot distress ink or any other ink to give a finished look.

I used mod podge to stick the papers it's a fabulous product for decoupage. Apply Mod Podge in Horizontal and Vertical way so that it get apply evenly on on base and it won't form any bubbles.

Tip: When you'll adhere the pattern paper, before give a one good coat of Mod Podge glue which is sufficient. Than take any clean rough cloth, fold into small rectangle shape and by keeping good pressure of your hand move that cloth piece on to the pattern paper, it will set  your pattern paper.
Stenciled using grey chalkboard paint and if you don't have grey use black and white acrylic paint. I have stenciled inside and outside before and after adhering the pattern papers. Heat Dry it.


For Inside have cut the pattern papers approx 7mm from all four sides. Adhere it using same technique. 


Step 4
Coming to decoration, I have colored the Simple Lattice Chippie from Papericious and other chipboard elements with DecoArt Reminisce ChalkBoard Paint using Sponge brush. To give a brushed look i have Distress them using Black Soot Distress ink. I have even use left over chippies from Simple Lattice to give a unique look. Have adhered them inside and top of the box using glossy accents.


On the top of the cover, I've placed chippies, flowers, Metal Embellishments and die-cuts from the Prima Rossibelle Collection to give symmetrical composition. After that i have adhered them with glossy accents and tacky tape.

Tip: You can take photographs of you composition, It'll help you to make the placements of your decorative products to check the correct composition, Once you're satisfy, adhere them.


Our Decoupage Box is Complete, Keep it aside. Let's move to Card now.


Easel Card Tutorial:

Step 1
Take black cardstock of around 250-300 gsm measuring 5*11inches and score on long side at 2.75" and 5.5".
Pre-fold all score lines.


Step 2
Take another piece of cardstock measuring 5x5.5" and adhere to 2.75" x 5.5" section  as shown using tacky tape,
Remove the Tape liner and adhere the 5x5.5" cardstock piece. Now the card base is ready.

Step 3
For embellishing the card I have used scraps from the collection left while making the box and have cut strips of 0.75" x 5.5" and now stick them randomly using tacky tape , now you can add a die cut and embellish it with the tags from the collection. I have added foam tape at the back to give 3D look. Take a strip of 1.75 *5 inches and add to the inside flap to make a stopper for the card to stand.


Step 4
I have added satin handmade flowers and embellished with diecut leaves using glue gun and glossy accents and added a sentiment in the inside flap to complete the card.


And now the easel card matching the mdf box is ready.
