Pencil Cards – Back to School

Hello friends! Inna Brigantina here today sharing my inspirational project with you. Very soon the holidays will end and children will go to school. Let’s make welcome cards for friends and teachers together.

For the bases of the blanks of the card, I took a simple form of a pencil.
It’s not hard to cut it out.
Any plain cardboard will do.

To give the blanks the appearance of real pencils, you can paint them with paints or use colored paper.
To achieve a variety of colors, I used paper from different collections. I have these sheets of True Love Collection, Boho Dreams Collection, Aqua Medley Collection 

For the decor, I cut out the leaves with cutting dies set Florence , Thin cut Metal Dies Set – Floris

I also used leaves from the set Evergreen Leafage Assorted

With the leaves and flowers I formed a composition on postcards. I have flowers from the sets Elira – Boho Vibes, Zoey Washed Aqua Medley

The main part is done. Now I have to only add an inscription and small accents.

The edges of the blanks were tinted with stamp pads. Allow yourself a little fun and sprinkle everything with little blobs.

My cards are ready. The remaining part is to add warm words on the back of the card and wishes for easy reading.

I hope, friends, you liked my simple cards and the idea will be useful to you.
Stay safe and always find time for creativity
Hugs, Inna Brigantina

Mini Album – Gold Smartphone

Hello friends!
Today I, Inna Brigantina, will show you an unconventional gift option.
Probably all of us would be happy to get a smartphone as a gift. And if it will be an album in the form of a phone? Well, probably not so nice, but not bad either!

I made a very pretty scrapbook as a gift for a young lady. Gold and pink – what could be better?

The phone box looks real too, doesn’t it? I had a plotter to help me create the album, but you can also cut it out from a template with scissors and a dies if you like.

The paper collection True Love is just made for romantic lovers of pink! I complemented it with gold accents.

True Love Ephemera are great as add-ons and decorations.

Using Thin cut metal dies set , cut out oval paper tags.

I made the cover gold, imitating the metal case. I added some lovely decorative pendants.

I used a set Bling Pink Melody and Bling Fiesta Gold as the filling for the shaker.
There’s some magic in that, don’t you think?

Watch a small overview of the mini-album in this video

I hope, friends, that I have inspired you! I wish you great creative solutions and discoveries

Live Every Moment – The Wedding Layout

Heyy!! It’s me gunjan on the blog today.

I hope my crafty friends are doing good:). I am here with another creative project.

It’s all about love , I made this layout using little birdie’s “True Love” collection. So let’s get started ♥️

I used these pattern papers ,wedding embellishments, some mixed media products, beautiful sequin, flowers and chipboard.

First we will be needing cut-out of this heart shaped OHP sheet.

Then on the patten paper I made a heart and drew lines with certain gaps (measurements written on it ,you can take any measurements as per your choice).

After cutting the stripes I pasted them on the OHP sheet.
It looks pretty isn’t it?

Then I made a mixture of mixed media paste, french rose chalk paint, Aquatini embossing texture paste and with the help of spatula I applied it on the stencil to obtain a beautiful texture on the heart stripes.

I placed these paper cut outs with pretty handmade flowers on the right side of the heart.
I also made two mini round shakers using vanilla and strawberry sparkling dotties sequins.
If you see the stencil texture, I darkened it with berry blast colour splash.

Further I gave this spongy effect on “Live Every Moment” chipboard with similar paste .
Also pasted little birdie’s pink lace on the sides of the heart.

.

I created a wax seal on the top of the paper cut-out using scarlet red wax beads with the help of wax seal tools.
Also added wedding embellishments down there and craft wire, going well with the theme

Ending up my project with some details like I applied whipped cream sparkle paste on the flowers, added “true color” themed ephemeras ,Using thin cut dies I created this pretty bow on the top ,splattered chalk paints throughout and gave spongy effect on the sides and in between the spaces. Simply because I love the rusty look .

And we are done!! These are some detailed pictures of my project.
I hope you guys enjoyed as much as I did making this beautiful layout ♥️
