Glittered flower card




        

Hello folks !!!
 Welcome to my blog.  It's die cutting time today and I am here to show how we can stretch our dies by re-arranging die cut pieces to create beautiful card bases.
Elizabeth Craft Designs' dies can be used in so many ways to create a variety of projects and it's great to play with them and take them beyond their original shape.
 I have used the Leaf Pocket die from ModaScrap for my card. Instead of leaving it it was first cut I have trimmed it into pieces within the design to create a background.

A GIFT BOX FOR HIM with XYRON

Hello folks !!!!

Happy Saturday !!! Is weekend time and that means the whole weeks tiredness and monotony will be done away with celebrations with friends and family.

I am going to celebrate a friend's birthday who will turn 50 tomorrow. For him, I have created this gift box by altering an old MONT BLANC belt box which was lying with me since a long time.

I used my XYRON gadgets to alter this box to give it a fresh look. Xyron makes crafting  a cakewalk.. Easy andd Fuss Free. This box now looks beautiful with no adhesive marks and thanks to Xyron I could finish it in flat one hour.

So do have look.






Instructions to make this box.

Cut out strips of pattern paper a little smaller than the sides of the lid.
Use a Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the strips on the side.

Add the top cover and the two mat layers with Xyron mega runner.

Add another strip of pattern paper on the sides using Mega runner. 
\
Pass the ribbons abd laces to be adhered flat on the box through the Xyron Creative Station lite. 5".
Adhere the lace and ribbon as shown.

Add the flowers and bows using hot glue gun.

Make double sided foam adhesive in the creative station and use this to adhere the metal feather and the two tags.

Pass the side metal corners through the creative station and bend then at an angle and adhere on the sides of the Lid. 

Use hot glue gun to add metal corner legs.

STACK AND STORE DAUBERS AND PLUMERIA FLOWER MAKING

Hello To all !!!!!

This is Anita here and I am back with loads of information and techniques with you. I love to share everything that I know related to crafting as I believe that Sharing increases my knowledge!!!

This post is regarding a new product--Daubers. These were recently launched by Heartfelt Creations and We at Crafters Corner have it in the store for you . You can check them out here.


These come in pack of 6 and 30 and as the name suggests -these daubers can be stacked and stored on top of each other. So let us read more about them.


So let's begin our question answer round !!!

* What are daubers?
Ans. Daubers are finger foam applicators used to colour images or any area with ink by holding the dauber with a finger .

The New stack and store daubers have also the same use only that their shape is different.

* How are the new Stack and Store daubers different for the previous one ?
Ans. The new Stack and store daubers have been so designed that they can be stacked on top of each other, hence storing them makes it easy as it requires less space, the daubers get protected from dust and their shape is triangular while the old one is round.
The new dauber has a tapered foam pad but the old one has a rounded dome  shaped foam pad.



* How does the difference in shape makes coloring easy?
Ans. Take your coloring to a whole new level with the Stack and Store Precision Sponge Dauber! The unique design of the precision corners allow you to color intricate details on stamped images with detailed precision, while the center of the dauber allows you to work in a circular motion to achieve a soft and subtle shading effect! The stackable, space saving design makes for easy storage and keeps your daubers together all in one place!


*Are the new daubers easy to store ?
Ans.The stackable, space saving design makes for easy storage and keeps your daubers together all in one place!

So now that all the questions regarding these daubers have been answered, let us see a video that will show you the practical application of these daubers.



This is a live video on FB I did a few months ago. 

Now let us move on to flower making using these new daubers,

The new talk of the town is the Tropical Paradise collection from Heartfelt Creations released this month and they are mind blowing !!! The flower featured in this collection is the PLUMERIA or FRANGIPANI and they are so beautiful.

SHAKER CARDS WITH XYRON

Hello Everyone !!!!

Its Shaker cards time !!!! Have super fun creating these cutest shaker cards without and fuss and believe me !!!!! Xyron has those gadgets that makes crafting so easy and wonderful. Check the entire range here at the Store.

I have made three shaker cards. Although these are so addictive and with Xyron Creative station to help you, I could have created many more .

Here they are...



To make this card, follow the photo tutorial below.

you will require the Xyron Creative Station Lite 5" and the Xyron Mega runner for this project.

Cut a card base in white card stock 5.5" x 4.25". Adhere a yellow mat layer using the Xyron Mega runner. Adhere a rectangle piece matching to the size of the shaker inner frame.


Cut two pieces of foam using the rectangle dies creating a frame as shown below. Cut one piece of pattern paper with the same frame die. Pass one foam frame and the pattern paper frame through the Creative Station to add adhesive to one layer. Pass the other foam frame once again face down to add adhesive to both sides.


Remove the backing paper from both foam pieces. Add two strips of pattern paper on one side using the Mega runner. Adhere the foam piece with adhesive both sides matching with the rectangle paper adhered before. Adhere the second foam piece on top. Add the sequins. Adhere a transparent film with Mega runner.


Adhere the pattern paper frame on the foam frame. Make embellishments  by stamping and colouring cute images. Pass them through the Creative station to add adhesive to their base. Pass the left over foam strips through the sticker machine to create adhesive foam strips. Cut squares from these to mount the embellishments on the card. Add a sentiment to finish it off.


Here is another example. I have used a circle die frame to create a circular shaker frame.

This card has an oval Shaker frame.






The Xyron Creative Station Lite 5" makes it very easy to create these shaker cards and what we get is super quick and clean projects. The foam tapes used here have also been made in the creative station.
