DMC play with Plaid!

Hellooo...
It's THURSDAY and am here with another Plaid play for today. This time its a pictorial, so sit back, relax and enjoy the tutorial.

I have up cycled a shoe box this time and played with the new HYDRANGEA LAWNS paper pack from DMC to alter this box along with Chalk paints from Home decor, Plaid.
Are you ready???
This is the shoe box before the makeover...


and here it is after a few hours!



Lets move on to the process....

I started by giving a coat of black gesso wherever necessary.




Next I applied candle wax on areas I wanted the distressed look, especially the edges.

I then applied the crackle medium from Home Decor on the rim and allowed it to dry. I have given a generous coat of the medium!

As the crackle was drying, I took Sheep skin chalk paint and did dry brushing where I had applied the black gesso.

Next came Yellow crochet...I did dry brushing of the same.

It was time to use up the lovely papers from DMC paper pack. It was a difficult choice which one to choose...but then I was quick enough to select this horizontal pattern which was perfect for the sides of the box. I used Mod Podge gloss to adhere the same.

Once the paper was stuck, there was a lovely distressed border around the edges. I used the scrapping tool to distress further where i had applied the candle ax. This reveled the black layer beneath. I love this distressed look and would like to emphasize that this tool can be used for distressing on card board too!

It was time to apply the top coat  where the crackle medium was applied. Its amazing how the cracks appear magically when the top coat is applied. here I have used Sage. It just compliments the paper so well!

A closer look at the cracks and the distressed edges!

It's stencil time! I had this Paris stencil in my stash and with sheep skin and the stencil brush, i managed this task in minutes!

An aerial view of the stencil work. The distressed edges gives a beautiful shabby chic finish to the lid. Agree????

I then added a metal handle to the lid and also a rope handle to the sides. This makes it easy to carry the box now! The black corners for the lids are foam pieces given a distressed look. This helps to cover the ugly openings on the sides of the shoe box. 


Finally, gave a coat of satin varnish to the box, inside out and it was ready to be flaunted! This is the finished box and all set sit on the coffee table now. This can be an accent piece on the table and maybe even a conversation starter...you never know!!!

 A few pics of the box all done up! The box when opened has more DMC papers to flaunt! I have one on the inside lid and another scripted one on the base of the box.





 It's a perfect setting for the coffee table to keep those little knick-knacks...what say???





With that, we come to the end of this tutorial and I thank you for your time to sit through this. I hope to get you scrapping tool soon and this awesome paper pack and may be even a new show for your spouse, lol...and alter that box, NOW!!!

I will see you next week with another Plaid play.
Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling.
Cheers,
Rupa

Hydrangea Lawns by Dress my Craft!

Hello everyone! 
Welcome to a brand new post at the Crafters Corner Blog! 
I will be doing a tute-inspirational post using the Gorgeous paper pad by Dress my Craft called
HYDRANGEA LAWNS 

Its such a beautiful paper pad! Comes in the size 12x12 inches absolutely perfect for Scrapbook layouts, Albums, altering boxes and of course card making. It has 12 designs ,2 sheets each. 24 sheets in all, Acid & Lignin free. It also has 2 sheets which have these adorable die cuts! A paper pad one MUST own! And the best part now... Its only for Rs595! Isn't that great? 

Now for todays post I first want to start with some cards I created for all of you using these Gorgeous papers! Lets have a look ?


Do you like them? Aren't the prints to die for!


Lets get started 
The first thing I did was I scored 4 cards and added pattern paper to those. I've layered 2 cards with Kraft cardstock just to add some more depth to the card

Well I had hard time deciding which prints to select cause all of them are so beautiful and shabby chic!

For the first card I've selected some die cuts and Im using these note cards (the ones on right) from the die cut sheet thats included in the paper pad

Im sticking the bored die cut to the base using my favourite glue! Now this is one glue that I use everywhere! Its light, dries clear and doesnt make a mess! A must have! 

Next I've layered a piece of pattern paper on top using double sided foam tape to add some dimension to the card. 

Next comes my favorite doily die by Prima marketing! It looks beautiful everywhere! 

Now I wanted a frame for my card so I've made one using a mold and Mod podge melter and I painted it using some pretty paints by Prima Marketing 
If you dont know how to use a melter please check this post on how to use Mod podge Melter!
 Also you can check this post to see how to make embellishments using paper clay -Prima Marketing - Paper clay and Vintage Art Decor Mould

Next I'd added some mulberry flowers and die cut leaves to my card. And do you see those pretty pearls? These are a part of the new Fashion Accessories range by Dress my craft! These are pearl hangings I've added them in such a way that they look like stick pins! 
Next I've added my all time fav art pebbles by Prima Marketing to my card and painted them using some wax and unicorn hair paint. 



And ta-daaa the card is ready!

The butterfly is from the Hydrangea stamp set by Justrite stamps I've painted it with some distress inks. Havent done the pretty shading cause I wanted a worn out distressed look ! Cause well Imperfections make it look beautiful!



Now coming to my next card I've basically just done some die cut layering on this card but there is one technique I really wanted to show you all. Im sure a lot of you already know how to do it but for all the newbies I want to show how to partially distress your die cut! I remember when initially I got into crafting n discovered this technique I absolutely loved it! 
  

So here we go place the die on top of the die cut and then distress like you normally would, for a variation you can also you 2 colours Since Im looking for a monochromatic look I used only one colour 

And here its done! 

Layered the die cuts using some foam tape and added my all time fav mulberry flowers! I really hope one day I develope the patience to sit and make some handmade flowers! Till then Mulberry flowers shall rescue me hehe!


 Now for my next card I wanted to do something grunge/mixed media style So I decided on doing some foiling to start with. I have used an adhesive rub on here, you can check a detailed post on it here- Foiling all the way!



I've torn a paper and now Im using a rub on and foil over it

To add some more colour to the card I've used my fav stencil along with some gathered twigs distress ink!

Layered the paper using some foam tape and added this beautiful chipboard cutout by Wycinanka 

Next I've added some flowers and embellishments by Dress my Craft and the gorgeous sequins that match perfectly and add the required bling to the card! 


 Next card I did some layering using these border print outs from the die cut sheet!

And this sentiment is also from the paper pad! Not to miss the beautiful fashion accessories here! 



Lastly I have some moreee inspiration for you all! I made these for my personal use and I have posted the box on my facebook page but I thought I will add them to my post cause I really want you all to see how stunning this paper pad it! 





Hope you all enjoyed today's post! 
Feel free to ask any questions and
Dont forget to leave some love!
Hugs
