Projects using frog talk digi

Hello everyone,

I am here with a cute card using Frog Talk digital stamp from Le Anns World 101 (link at the end of the post). I love Le Anns stamps they are beautiful and only fun to work with. I used pencils to colour the image and had fun. I made two projects with this digi. 

The first one is a card and used sentiment from clearly besotted. I added some small embellishments, twine and some cut outs. 

The second one, I used it to make a scrap layout. I used digital scarpbook kit from Buncha Scraps to make this layout. 

There is so much possibilities and ways to use digital stamps.

I hope you all enjoyed my post

Happy Crafting everyone

Tea coasters

Hello everyone,

I am here with a new inspiration post for Rainbow Craftykari blog (HERE). For this month's inspiration I am making 2 different types of tea coasters. 


Materials used:

MDF coasters
Rhinestone/Kundan stones
Gold ball chain
Clear varnish

How to make them:
1. Paint MDF coasters with desired colours and allow to dry
2. Started with applying glue on all sides and stuck gold ball chain
3. Stick rhinestones/kundan stones as per choice leaving enough space for the cup and allow to dry completely
4. Apply a coat of clear varnish to seal (on both sides of the coaster) and let it dry
5. Once dried, coaster is ready to use.


Materials used:
MDF coasters
Embossing powder - White
Mama elephant Stamps - Cup of wishes (any stamp can be used)
Mini misti samping tool
Heat gun
Versamark ink
Anti static powder tool
Clear varnish

How to make them:
1. Paint the coasters with desired colours and let them dry for 24 hours
2. Select stamp and use mini misti or misti for stamping (Acrylic block can also be used)    3. Rub anti static powder tool 
4. Warm the heat gun
5. Use versamark ink to stamp on the coaster
6. Use embossing powder, I used white here and use the heat gun for embossing.
7. Let it cool for 20 mins and then apply a thin coat of clear varnish and dry for 24 hours
8. Coasters are ready to use

Tips for Heat embossing:

1. Use of Misti: Some stamps do not stamp well and may require repeated stamping. Since we are using MDF here, to avoid errors while stamping its best to use Misti.
2. Use of anti static powder tool: Embossing powders are sticky and tend to stick to the entire MDF. The powder prevents embossing powder from sticky all over the MDF and only to the stamped parts
3. Warming heat gun prior to use, embosses quickly. 
4. Embossing powder: If there is no colour or white powders available with you, you can stamp with colour ink and again stamp with versamark and use clear embossing powder
Must have embossing powders - gold, silver, clear - regular & gloss, white. For black use verafine black onyx ink and emboss with clear powder. 

I enjoyed making these tea coaster and hope for all to try them out.

I am here for Scrapbook stamp society with a new project using digis. I made a mirror image technique for this card. I created a mirror image of the digi along with friends forever sentiment and printed them out. I printed this out on heavy base white card stock and used alcohol markers and colour pencils for colouring the digi.

Gate fold card

Hi everyone,

I am here with a beautiful gate fold card using digi from Le Ann's world (link at the end of the post) for the creative crafters DT.

I used 4 1/4" by 8 1/2" card stock. Scored at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8" to make the gate fold.
I used die cuts from spellbinders (sentiment) for the out of the card alon with a butterfly from MUDRA stamps.

I printed the digi on 110lbs card stock and coloured with colour pencils.

I used the digi for the inside of the card. I stamped a sentiment to the left and have space to write my message on the right side of the card. 

I kept the focus on the technique and the image.

Shadow box card picture tutorial

Hello everyone,

I here with an amazing project as a part of DT for Rainbow Craftykari with a tutorial post (link to the blog at the end of the post). Its a very simple and easy project - Shadow box card. The pictures may look a little complicated but its not. It will take only 5 mins to create the box, its that simple and easy.  There is a lot of scope to work here but I have kept mine simple. 

12 x 12 card stock (any colour)
12 x 6 card stock
Martha Stewart score board
Adhesive tape & double sided adhesive
The Greeting Farm stamp - Trishell (mermaid), Maisea (sentiment)
Your Next stamp - Fishy fun
Colour pencils
Hero arts ink 
Ink blending tool
Clear water droplets

Let's start

1. Take a 12 x 12 card stock. To make it easy, I have marked them A & B.

2. Place the card stock on scoreboard. The card is to be scored at 1",1 1/2", 2 1/2" and 3". This is on all 4 sides of the card stock. No need to crease the scored lines now. 

3. Note this step very carefully. To be marked only on sides marked A..
Mark one inch from the last scored line and two more marks as shown in the picture. 

4. Using a pen/pencil connect these points as shown in the picture.
The sections marked X are to be cut. 

5. After the sections are cut. (Only on sides marked A)

6. Now crease the scored lines and turn the paper over. 

7. Now its time for adhesives. Adhesives to be applied on the outer part of the card stock.

Turn the card stock over and apply adhesive as shown in the picture. This is to be pasted only in the last. Do not paste them before the last step

8. Start pasting sides marked B first. One side at a time. Remove the paper layer and fold the side as shown (half of the scored lines)

The fold will be facing the inside of the card

Repeat the same on the other B side

Now, push the folded sides out. This part makes it easy to fold and paste the other two remaining sides.

9. Repeat the same way of sticking these sides. If you see the picture carefully, I have the side adhesives still intact and yet to adhere them. 

10. This is the final step to make the shadow box. Remove the upper paper on all sides and push all the sides together in to create the box

11. Score the 12 x 6 card stock in half to create a 6 x 6 card. 

Adhere the card to the back of the shadow box

12. To decorate my shadow box card, I used stamps from The Greeting Farm and Yours Next Stamp. I stamped all the images on ninah white card stock and coloured them using colour pencils. 

First, I used some yellow ink from hero arts to add some highlighting behind the mermaid and adhered the mermaid using double sided adhesive to give dimension. 

I used normal liquid adhesive for the rest of the images. I added some clear water droplets to give bubble effect. 

I kept the inside of the card simple as well. Just added a fish and a turtle with a simple sentiment from Yours next stamp. 

I hope the tutorial was useful and fun.
