Swedish House Crafts Mixed Media ATCS Houses

Hello all

I have an ATC set to share using the  Houses Die Set by Gummiapan.

Paint the blank ATCS with gesso and then paint yellow, green and blue ink onto the cards. 
Stamp over the base with texture stamps.

Apply a stencil and once set, rub over with metallic lustre. Cut out the houses from plain card stock and then  glue to ATCS. Cover with a small stencil mask.

Paint over with inks and then stamp out the sentiments. Colour them with ink and cut them out before adding them to the ATCS

Swedish House Crafts Home Is Not A Place Greeting Card

Hello all

I have a shaker card to share using the  Houses Die Set by Gummiapan.

Click Links To Buy

Cover a square card blank with patterned paper and tear a few strips of washi tape off and stick them to edges of the card.

For the shaker box i use craft foam instead of 3d sticky tape. First i find the two die sizes i want to use and then i place one inside the other and hold in place with washi tape.  I  then cut one or two frames from the foam and one from patterned paper.

 Next i cut the largest die from paper and from acetate. The foam frames i glue together, you can do more to create a deeper box. I glue the foam frames onto the rectangle cut from the patterned paper  and once the glue has dried i then add the micro beads and sequins. Then i seal it with the acetate and add the frame cut from patterned paper.

Glue lace along the back of the shaker box and then cut out three of the houses from patterned paper. Glue them to the front of the shaker box in a row and then add a sentiment to finish.

New Product Range Craft Consortium MDF Altered Storage Box

Hi all

I have an exciting new product range from Craft Consortium to share today. Yep they now do MDF products and you know i love working with MDF. As seen on Hochanda i present to you the Storage Box. This is huge and can hold an A4 stamp set or maybe cards if you want to keep them all organised.

Product list

MDF Storage Box With Dividers

Decoupage White Wood

Decoupage Old Newspaper

Tell The Bees Clear Stamp Set

Kori Kumi Floral Die

Kori Kumi Sequins

DecoArt Gold Metallic Lustre

I started off by painting each piece with white gesso and leaving it to dry and then i gave it a coat of cream chalky finish paint. 

I then covered each piece in pva glue that had been watered down with a little water. I used the White Wood Decoupage papers and covered each piece. Once it had dried i used the hineycombe stamp from the Tell The Bees Collection to stamp across the sides using black ink. I then cut out the flowers from white card and coloured them with brusho powders. 

I then sanded back any rough and uneven edges and rubbed on some  gold metallic lustre. I then glued the flowers onto the sides of the box and filled in the gaps with sequins.

I covered the inserts with the Old Paper Decoupage papers and glued resin flowers on to the tabs to finish.

Colourcraft Love Is In The Air ATC Set

Hello all 

I am back with a set of mixed media ATCs using Brusho Crystal  Powders.

I started off by coating the ATC blanks with white gesso. I then mixed the Brusho Crystal Powders in water and painted them on with a paint brush. I added more water to spread the colour a bit more.

For this one i used a watercolour effect and then i used a texture stamp on the background. The hearts are created by painting Rose Red Brusho Powder onto white card, allowing it to dry and then using die cuts to cut out the hearts.

I  used the Brusho Crystal powders like a water colour paint and painted a section of the card. I then used texture stamps on the background and then added the die cut hearts.

I painted a layer of crackle paint onto the base and then soaked it with Brusho Crystal Powders. I then stamped texture stamps onto the base and added the hearts and small words. I used a strong adhesive to add micr beads around the larger heart and edges.

Thank you for visiting.

I applied texture stamps and stencil masks over the backgrounds.

I used an pallet and added water to the inkwells before sprinkling in some Brusho Crystal Colour Powders to use as watercolour paints. I use a fine tipped paint brush and carefully paint inside the lines.
