Mixed Media Card with Whimsical Collection

Papericious card made by Erum Tasneem @pr0digy0

Hello everyone!
Erum here today bringing to you a mixed media card using Whimsical Paper Pack.
This card design is an almost replica to the very first card I made for Papericious.
But this time I used Sigma Cardstock to make my roses and covered them with Crystal Clear Glitter.
They look absolutely beautiful.
The whole card is covered in the Crystal Clear Glitter, I love it and can not recommend it enough!
Papericious card made by Erum Tasneem @pr0digy0
I used a stencil and Gesso to add texture to the background, leaves and parts of the doily and then sprinkled the Crystal Clear Glitter over it while it was still wet.
This card gives such a winter like feeling especially after adding gesso and glitter.
That is all from my side.
I hope you like my sparkly card. 
See you soon :)

Mixed Media Art - Lotus Pond + Video Tutorial!


This is Ujjwal and today I am sharing another mixed media project. I am in love with the recently released art mediums by Papericious and can't stop using them.

This lotus pond scene has been in my mind for a long time and Mudra Lotus stamp was perfect for it. I used the beautiful Femina paper which already had a watercolor print and that reduced my effort of painting the flowers. The art work measures 6"x8" and would make a lovely gift.

Here's the complete process video of how I created this art piece,

I hope you enjoyed this project and would give it a try.
Thanks, Ujjwal

Birthday card tutorial

Hello crafties.
This is Diana.

Today I am showing tutorial for easy and interesting card folding.
I used Let`s go paper pack. It has a Travel theme. This card is for my Dad's birthday. He will receive a flight ticket from my family.

 I cut the strip 13,5 cm x 5,5 cm. and I scored at 1,5 cm as shown. I glued the smaller part to the back of the card and the wider part will be shown on the front and will be used as small pocket. 

For the paper be able to be stuck behind the pocket, i used a staple. It is important not to staple throw the front paper. Do cut the front paper shorter so you will have a space from the bottom  (about 1,5 cm).

Now it time to design the front of the card. I used a stamp with  suitable subject.

I wanted to have clean design so I used only three colors: white black and red.  This paper pack have great patterns!

That the front of the card. As you can see the front paper is stopped into the front pocket.  
The text is in Swedish and it says: Enjoy every minute.

When you take out the front paper, that what you see: Short message and I will put a note inside the pocket where it will be said : Ticket to Germany

Hope you like this card.
Hugs from me:
DT Diana

Sigma flowers and Femina card

Hello crafty friends, Monika here.
Today I would like to show you how to make cute and super easy Sigma flowers.

Sigma cardstock are perfect for making flowers, but do you know what I love most about them? We could use punches to punch out shapes from Sigma cardstock. No machines and dies are needed. This is so simple, quick and easy way to make lots of flowers.

So here is a tutorial:
1. Punch some flowers with punches and Sigma cardstock.

2. Put the flowers to the clean water. When flowers are wet, put them on the paper towel to drain off excess water. You could colour them at this step with a paint or ink if you wish.

3. Lay each flower on the  mat face up and push down in the center of each one with embossing tool to shape.

4. The effect will be different when you use different size of the tool. Look at the picture - I used 3 different sizes of tools: the tool first from the left has 2mm, second 4mm, third 8mm.

5. Let all flowers dry, then make a hole in the center of each one.

6.  Apply some glue in the center and adhere stamens. You could also use beads or pearls instead of stamens.

This is the basic technique of making flowers, maybe you would like to learn more? If yes, please write a comment.

I played a little with Sigma cardstock and punches:

Small flowers I made are great filler to the flower cluster, look at them here, on my card.

To make this card I used beautiful papers from Femina paper pack. I love cut out sheet so I used a cute image of baloon. I also added bigger and smaller flowers made from Sigma cardstock, lace white flowers, chipboards embossed white and some green sequins. 

I also decorated the inside of my card.

Fabric flowers FL5002
Sigma cardstock
Leaf flourish chipboard

Green sequins

I hope you like my tutorial and inspiration.
Thank you for visiting. Have a great day!

Bon Voyage-Explore, Travel, Adventure

Hello Dear Friends,
Shalini Pahwa here, As a child, many of us would have been enamored by the serene pictures of mountains, lakes, beaches and exquisite travel locations, I still am… As a famous saying goes “… we travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us…”, I feel travelling and exploring new things makes one understand life in all forms. And travelling with someone you love makes your bond stronger than ever. The things you feel, you share and encounter during a journey makes you understand your partner much better than being at the comfort zone of your home.

Today, as we start the season of travel, I present to you a tag tutorial dedicated to your next journey. And the inspiration for this tag is the new collection of "Lets's Go" from Papericious.

Tag size is 4"x 8" (Really big size tag).and distress, torn the edges.
 Then applied a layer of White Gesso from Papericious
Select chipboard according to theme, and these beautiful chippis are from Papericious.
Papericious is really coming out with  wonderful products.
 Paste these chippis and apply a layer of white gesso and start playing with acrylic colours and sprays. When satisfied with colours add sentiments( these are chipboard sentiments). Journals are also from the " Let's Go" pack and for final touches i had used crystal clear and for final look added chain.

I hope you  all will enjoy this mixed media tag tutorial
