Stamping Embossing Resist Tutorials !!

Hello crafty Friends...
This is Riti Poddar here today with two tutorials...Since we at Crafter's Corner are focusing on Stamping & it's different techniques, I'm here today with "Resist Stamping/Embossing Technique"
It's a fun technique with which you can create various backgrounds for your projects. I have had a lot of fun doing this for you all !! I hope you enjoy the tutorial.
it's going to be a long sit back & enjoy !

(P.S. Click on the pictures for a Bigger picture ! )

 Simple Emboss Resist Stamping !

Step 1: Wipe your card stock with the 'Good Bye Static' pad well. This will help in getting rid of any moisture, finger Prints, lint etc which might be there on the paper. Tap off the excess. 
(P.S. Be careful not to touch the surface once you have used the GB static Bag)

Step 2 : Take a Background Stamp & ink it with Versamark Ink & stamp on your cardstock.
Use a clear Embossing Powder & Use your heat tool for embossing !

Step 3: Once you have embossed, wait for 5 minutes until your card stock surface is dry.

Step 4: Choose your desired colors of Gelatos & rub on your embossed card stock as shown above
or in any other pattern as you wish.
 (P.S. You can use any other medium to color such as Distress inks, paints, etc)

Step 5: Blend in the colors with your finger & then Wipe off the excess with a wet tissue/baby wipe.
You will now see that the Embossed Background has resisted the colors !
This is a Simple Embossing Resist Technique !

Step 6: I have used my Die cut to cut out a label from the embossed card stock.

Take a look at the final Card :

Similarly I have used my Distress Ink Pads for the card below..


It's Time now for Our Second Tutorial !
Yes !! It's Double the fun......with 
"Double Emboss Resist Technique" lets get started !!

Step 1: Use your Memento Inks/Archival Inks to stamp your background.
Here I am using a Flourish Stamp & the Blue Summer Sky Memento Ink.

Step 2: Next I stamped some text back ground randomly using a darker shade of blue ink.

Step 3: Now for my next design I have chosen a Prima Stencil instead of any stamp.
I have covered the entire card stock with the stencil & inked it with Versamark Ink.
(P.S. When using your stencils make sure you use the ink pad liberally.)

Step 4: Now it's time to emboss. I have used my Fav. Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powders.
These are two-toned Embossing Powders just like the Sprays..& the results are just fabulous.
We have a whole lot of shades in the store!! Grab some of your favourites & create magic.

Step 5: Use your Heat Tool to emboss the powder. You'll see the two-toned effect once the powder melts. Doesn't it look gorgeous !! I love it !!

Step 6 : Bring out your Lindy's Stamp Gang starbursts & get spraying!!
I have sprayed the background using 2 colors.

Step 7: Dab the excess with a wet tissue/ baby wipe & dry off with your heat tool.
And a Gorgeous Background is ready to be worked on !!
It looks just faaaabulous in Real Life !!
Love all that shimmer...

   Here's my Card using this Background...

Wishful !!!!

Hi lovelies !!
Today's project is a cute gift for a cute neighbour!! Since I was travelling last week my friend helped my pets feel comfortable ,so I thought of gifting this to her.
I had an old MDF wishing well in my stash and I decided to decorate it and create something unique.
This month we wanted to use stamps in various styles and techniques.My fellow DT's have done an amazing work and I am sure u all must be using whatever is shared. I have mainly been focusing on 
"Fussy cutting " and even this post will have the use of this technique. 
Hope u like it and feel inspired!!
soooo let's begin....

I painted the entire MDF product with gesso and distress paint. Added paper on top , tonns of flowers and pollens .

I wanted to add sturdiness and strength to my box so wrapped it with some twine.

Picked up coordinating flowers and glued them in a corner and created a cute bouquet .

I stamped the wood with two inks to add some subtle texture .

This tag was created with left over paper and a gorgeous stamp.
I did quite a lot of  fussy cutting on the stamped images and merged two stamps.
Can u see the magic of wink of Stella ? 
Can't resist using this amazing product these days!!! Totally in love with it 😍

used the Chalk edgers for the soft look of the roof pannels.the leaf and butterfly was fussy cut.

Here is the final pic and they look amazingly cute !!!!

Signing off for today….
Feel free to ask any questions and i will b more than happy to answer them.
happy crafting!

Tute- Creating Backgrounds!

Hello everyone!
Hope you all are doing well!
Today I will be doing a tute on how to create the backgrounds of these tags!
Aren't they pretty?
Lets get started! Its gonna be a long post with lots of pictures and information so sit back with a nice cold drink and enjoy the post!
I will start from the easy backgrounds going to the more detailed ones.

 The 1st basic product that you all should have is the craft sheet! Its excellent for distressing as it makes so much easier to blend colours without leaving patches. Its heat proof and protects your surface while using the heat gun. A complete must have.
I've die cut the tags using the Tim Holtz tag die. I have uploaded one picture with all the supplies used for making one tag. Hopfully i did fit in everything :P
Lets get started!

For the 1st tag I will be using 2 Distress inks- Pumice stone (my fav colour) and Black soot. The cute butterfly stamp is by Impression Obsession we have it in our store. You'll find its link in the list of products at the ed of the post. I will be using Archival ink here. I just love it. It gives a perfect crisp impression from flowers to sentiments to these silhouette stamps the impression is crisp! An excellent ink pad. 
 To begin with I have distressed the entire tag using Pumice Stone Distress ink .
 Next I inked the stamp and stamped my tag, I continued stamping till i had filled my entire tag with the print. 
 It looks pretty right? A perfect way to create pattern paper on your own! 
I inked the edges with Black soot and there my background is ready!

For the embellishment I've used Chole stem Die, The Post card die cut is from the Tim Holtz Die cuts pack! I so love the pack its very economical and has a gr8 variety of die cuts. The black swirls are by prima! I am addicted to these swirls :p I think you all know it by now hehe!

Moving to my 2nd tag now.
 I am here using 2 of my fav products. The Gold embossing paste and the Brick template. The colours of Distress Inks used for this tag are- Dusty Concord , Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers. 

 I inked the tag in sort of stripes and then blending in. 
 Next I placed my template over my tag and to hold it down I've used some washi tape from my stash. Once my tag was secured I added the Golden Embossing paste. Make sure you give a medium coat not too thick not too thin. As the gold embossing paste absorbs a lil colour from underneath and shows a slight tint which looks very pretty!
A small tip= The best and only way to maintain templates is to clean them as soon as you finish using them as usually the medium used dries and sticks to the template. 

Here's a picture of the tag once it was dry. Doesn't it look lovely!
For the embellishment I've used an Oval die cut from Radiant Rectangles die set by Spellbinders. I've stamped a sentiment from Just rite using archival ink. I've not loaded this one with embellishments as I really loved the way the background looked!

For the next tag I will be using the new Balze Bits TCW masks. We have got a lot of variety of these in our store. They come in a 6*6 size and are super cute!
 The Distress inks I am using here are - Antique Linen,Chipped Sapphire and Broken China 
 I started with distressing the entire tag with antique linen. 
 Now I've used 2 tiny pieces of tacky tape at the back of the mask. This will help me securing it to my tag as I use distress inks.
 I placed the mask in the corner and distressed with Broken China  

 This is how it looks!
 Now i will repeat the same step moving my mask to the other corner and distressing with Chipped Sapphire.

 It looks pretty!
 To add some more colour I've distressed the entire tag using my fav colour Victorian Velvet.

Next I inked up the edges with Chipped Sapphire. 
For embellishing this tag I decided to use the Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fluer stamp and die. I've inked the flowers using the colours of the tag. The die cut is Spellbinders Label 7 and the sentiment is from Just Rite. Will link up all the dies and stamps used at the end of the post. 

4th tag
Well quiet a no. of supplies in this one!
 I am using a stencil by Tcw, Burlap background stamp by Just Rite- This is an awesome stamp! It make it so easy to stamp your own pattern paper with this!

 I've stamped my tag with the Burlap Background stamp and Distressed it in bits using Forest Moss and Rusty Hinge. 

 Next I've secured my template and using a finger dauber I'm inking the tag using Walnut Stain distress ink.
 This is how it looks. I continued moving around my template till i was satisfied with the look.

 Now my fav step! Using the Distressing tool by Prima! I love the way it creates that edge. Adding the Grunge shabby look to the paper.

 To make the edges more prominent I've inked them with Walnut stain.
See!! I forgot to fit in few supplies in the main picture :P
These kaisecraft stamps are awesome! They are bold and make the perfect tags and bookmarks!

 For the embellishment of this tag I've used the pretty Metal Charm Chandelier available in our store.

Well now the last tag! Tag-5!
 Lots of distress inks here. Some heat embossing too!
 I've distressed the entire Tag with Scattered Straw. When using a no. of inks on one tag always begin with the lightest colour. It make the blending easier.
 Next comes some Mustard seed.

 Some Spiced Marmalade and Rusty hinge adding the darker tones over the lighter ones.
 Next I've used some peeled paint. And lastly some peacock feathers over it.

 I've not blended the center as i will be stamping next.

 I've used the leaf and small flower stamp from Just Rite Home Tweet Home Stamp set.

 Next I've stamped Silhouette 11 stamp by Impression Obsession using Black Archival ink.
 Now using some cute sentiments from the Technique Tuesday Loving Words stamp set. I stamped them with versa mark and used Ranger white embossing powder I Heat embossed them.
Lastly I've used the Art is Template by TCW with some molding paste. I forgot to click a picture of it.
Lastly I've inked the edges with Black soot.
For the embellishment of this tag I've used some punched flowers. 

Pheww! All done! Hope you all enjoyed the tute. Do leave some love. Incase of any query do leave a comment would be happy to help!
