Halloween mini album with Canvas Corps

I made this mini album over the new naked album, but then I decided to glue the card over album with non permanent glue and this way the card can be used later as a separate card. Or before.I used dies to make the basic paper rectangles, punches to make borders, orange DIY paint to add to edges. I embellished the wooden cloth pins with small ABC letters to make the make this" Scarry night" title. Two paper pieces - a mask and a bat- were hand cut from the patterned paper and then heat embossed with clear powder to make those unique embellishments.

Resin covered bookmarks tutorial

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my October tutorial made with Rebecca Baer's delicious stencils.
Also I already made a couple of bookmarks before (I am a book worm, so this is my must to craft item), but this time the technique is different and I made them over simple kitchen  foil and covered with a layer of resin to make it like forever.
So here are the steps for this project:
1.  Make three strip of a chipboard in bookmark size and cover them around with a kitchen foil. Use Heavy gel medium (I used Golden, but any heavy gel medium is good) with Rebecca Baer Mosaic Medium size stencil over the all three pieces together. Let the gel medium dry and it takes TIME! 

This is how it looks after you take the stencil off- gel medium is still white. But after it's dry it becomes pretty much clear.

3. Use a few of your favorite Staz On inks over the texture. Just rub them over and over and you can also mix some of the primary colors to make more colors. Those inks are perfect for  non paper surface.

5. Add a thin layer of Gaze On medium over the colored pieces.
This medium  was made to make Staz On ink permanent no matter what. Let it dry.

6. There are no photos of resin filling step as I had to work without moving the covered pieces to the light to take photos. But it's just " mix resin according to instructions and the brand and cover the colored bookmarks from the front. Do not touch them for 24 hours. Now make another portion of resin mix and cover the back side and let them dry for another 24 hours."
Use your hole punch (heavy duty one) to make holes on the top  of the bookmarks and tie a piece of lace or ribbon on the top. 
You can't see it , but  those bookmarks look and feel like a piece of glass and you can still see all stenciled texture.

Halloween Clay Home Deco

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my Halloween Home Deco project made with Makin's Clay .
This is a tall decorative piece made over the recycled chipboard piece of packaging, but then every  single piece of it is made with Makin's Clay  and arranged into this Halloween scene.
So here is my step by step tutorial for you:
1. Add a bit of orange acrylic paint to  Makin’s Clay® white   to make the orange colored clay. And just blend it to get the real color Orange as seen on the bottom photo.

2. Roll Makin’s Clay®   in black, grape and orange piece over piece over the tall chipboard shape. Just tear the rolled clay pieces and arrange them totally randomly over the chipboard.

3. Use two Makin's Clay Texture sheets from set D (Stars and Woodgrain) to make the texture over the row clay.
Use wooden texture on the bottom and star texture on the top of your piece.Let the background dry.

4. Use Makin’s Clay® Cutters from  Halloween set and cut a few Halloween shapes using white, black and orange (made) clay. On this photo you see more shapes than those finally used on the project.
Let them dry.

5. Stamp textures with background stamps over the dry cut shapes as shown. I used pigmented ink and my heat gun to  make  the ink permanent.

6. Roll a thin piece of black Makin's Clay with Makin's Clay Roller and die cut with your dies.
Let them dry before we use them on the final project.

7. Arrange your die cut and cut shapes over the clay background.
As you can see I added a mixed clay circle under the funky moon shape (mixing grape and neon yellow clay together and using round  Makin's Clay cutter). The I arranged the moon over the circle. Add a thin  layer of  neon yellow clay under the haunted house shape as shown before you glue the house over the piece.
Arrange  all other stamped shapes and glue them over the background.

8. Cover the whole piece with glaze and add some golden glitter around the shapes and over the piece.

Wedding box and Gift card holder tutorial with Papericious

Happy my dear crafty friends and welcome to my second October Papericious post.
Today I am going to share a full paper crafting tutorial for a book shaped handcrafted box and a gift card holder.
This project was made with the most delicious Wedding kit and yes, this is a wedding trinkets box and a wedding gift card holder we are going to craft today.
So follow my easy instructions and you can make the very similar box and gift card holder in no time.
Step 1: Cut the thick chipboards to two pieces of 11 1/2*17 cm. and one piece to 3 cm*17 cm.  You can use any chipboards, even to recycle some old boxes.

2. Cut the Wedding kit dark red cardstock to fit the chipboards and leave 1 cm. for the folds.The cardstock here is shown with the front side up.

3. Use double sided glue and cover the chipboards as shown.

4.Glue three pieces of cardstock on the bare chipboard's as shown using the very same double sided glue.
Add the same glue around all four sides of the dotted cardstock for the next step.

5. Use your scoring board or score by hand the glossy pearl cardstock from the wedding kit. You just need one 30*30 cm. cardstock and score it on 1 cm so you get 12 mountain scores. Cut the cardstock into two parts vertically. Cut  each half into two pieces -one 11 cm long and one 16 1/2 cm. long.

6. Arrange one long and one short folded piece over the glue strip as shown. Arrange the second two pieces to get the full frame of folded cardstock. Add another layer of double sided glue over the folded frame.

7. Heat emboss the cover edges with gold embossing powder as shown.
You can use brand of gold ink and gold powder or just use clear embossing ink with gold powder.

8. Use stitched rectangle dies to make two die cuts for the front cover.

9. Glue the die cuts as shown over the front cover.

10. From this step on I wouldn't show  each paper piece cutting, the general arrangement of the elements.
So here is the inside of the cover here. I die cut a dark red cardstock and layered with smaller patterned cardstock die cut. Two hand cut post cards were added over the inside cover.  Then die cut two stitched circles and add the sentiment over it.

11.Use fabric stitffener over a few of lace cuts to make them " standing" after they are dry.
Make the same procedure with a long piece of red waxed twine. Let all pieces dry.

12. Die cut the stitched oval and add the lady's image inside the folded frame.
Cover the frame with deep red patterned cardstock as shown.
Add the hand cut word " Happiness" on the right low corner.
Tie the red and pink waxed twine around the cover.

13. This is how the finished front cover looks after I added a couple of die cut doilies using red cardstock and heat embossed a  few more die cut doilies with the same gold embossing powder.
The doilies, fabric flowers, leaves, butterflies and twine were arranged over the cover and some sequins and pearl beads were added as shown.

Here is a close  up of the main cluster over the front cover of the box.

And the upper embellished part is here:

14. Now lets make the gift card holder.
 Make a small  bag using patterned paper and cut the half circle on the top with punch.
Cut  the  gift card size strip using two connected paper images.

15. Embellish the bag with twine. hand cut paper, image and sentiment as shown.

16. Add photo corners to keep the gift card inside.

This is how it looks with a folded card holder inside the bag.

And this is how it looks with the gift card holder inside the box.

I hope you like my small tutorial and you can make the very similar  project with our fantastic Wedding Kit !

Holidays envelope gift card holder with Two Paper Divas

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new post made for Two Paper Divas.
This gift card holder was made for a print publication and was already in print in Just Christmas cards and decorations ! magazine, but it was never shared on-line and this is a  time to begin to share my Two Paper Divas printed Holidays projects.
So I made this one over a green envelope that was opened and the Santa's Ho-Ho-Ho most gorgeous TPD stamp was stamped as a closure the the front.
The  stamped image was colored with puffy paints to show the Santa's beard and to make it more interesting.
On the second photo you can see the back of this gift card holder. All papers and die cuts are from Paper House company. The front word die cut is Sizzix.

And that's how it looks when you open it: you can put the girgt card inside the black corners.

I really hope that you like this idea of a gift card holder made from the office  envelope!
