Calender layout-happy 2019

Hello crafty friends!

Happy 2019!
Happy & Prosperous New year!
Today it's 31 st December..and last day of 2018..so here is my post with 2019 calendar..saying bye bye to 2018 n welcoming 2019..



I have made a 12"x12" layout calendar. For the base I have used black thick 350 GSM cardstock on that I have used marble print pattern paper in light purple colour ,edges distress with distress tool. Then I did stenciling using DCAM 3D stencil and distress oxides in few places.
I got 2019 calendar printed n layered with black cardstock and placed on my layout in desired place..and then rest of the area decorated with DCAM word chiplets 'happy' .2019 is done with a big number stamp. Flowers I have used from DCAM ready to color images..on which I have used very easy colour technique ..as I wasn't in mood to colour the images..I distressed the whole images with dusty Concord distress ink and then try to remove color  with water brush..so you get this shaded water colour look. Then again edges distress after fussy cutting. Used stamped sentiments in few places like #craftylife #craftyfriends😁👍and create happiness today! 
All the best for 2019..
Thank you
Love n hugs

Birthday calendar

Hello crafty friends,
Iam at Prika's blog as ' featured artist of the week'
Today I am sharing an accordion birthday calendar with step by step tutorial with images , but I must tell you in advance that this is a picture heavy post🙂






Step-1:
Take two piece of 7"X 7" cardstock  of your choice,score at 3/4"&11/2" on all four sides. Now cut four corners as shown in picture and stick with strong tacky tape to form a shadow box kind.. 
Take two piece of cardstock in 4"x4" size and  stick on the open side of shadow box.. prepare both  side boxes.

Step-2:
For 12 according pockets we need 12  piece of cardstock in size of 4"x8"..score each on 8" side at 2",6".. and fold each like gatefold cards..( see in pic) now stick 1"red tacky tape on two open flaps n join ..see picture.. to get idea. Prepare all 12 like these. Then join together with one after other by removing tacky tape.so will have 12 accordion pockets.





Step-3:
To support all 12 accordion pockets I have used cardstock at the base and then joined two boxes on two sides( see picture).I prefer to used red tacky tape as don't need to hold long but you can use any strong adhesive also.and now accordion box with 12 pockets ready.




Step:4
Now will make 12 flaps for 12 pockets. Take 3.75"X 4:5" cardstock and using punch board I have made tabs on top of all..these 12 flaps will have 12 months calender on one side n birthday list of that month  on other side. Our accordion  birthday calendar is ready..and you can decorate as per your choice or style..


Got printout of 2019 calender  from net n used 
To decorate my birthday calendar I have used one of my favourite papers -Mintay papers "celebrations" pack .after selecting papers I did fussy cutting and layering of papers  to decorate both sides. 
I have distress all edges n papers with vintage photo distress ink
Used emblisments,flowers, lace ,pearls, metal legs and sentiments from my stash..I always keep few stamped sentiment ready in my stash..

Bold sentiment cards with DCAM chiplets:

Hello crafty friends!
In today's post I am mainly highlighting on  DCAM newly released word /sentiment chiplets .  Its a pack of 6 chiplets both  in black n white Colors....fonts  of these chiplets are so good, just like big sentiment stamps....so I have used that n made three cards..with that I have also
used critter sheets and 3-D stencils  from DCAM.

My first card:
In this card for the base I have used iris cardstock and done stenciling with distress oxides  using DCAM 3-D stencil. Then using square stiched die I have cut that card into 4.25x5.5" . Then fussy cut the selected critter sheets,and decided to used word wishes from chiplets set..
So after doing 3d stenciling,I have arranged everything roughly..and when I was happy with the card layout..I have stuck everything..to give diemension I have used foam tapes in flowers n butterfly.. finally used nova enamel dots in few places..for word best I have used Concordn9 alpha stamp set .then did layering with pink cardstock n then on iris folded cardstock.

My second card:


This card is my favourite..and I love this critter sheet design..it's got watercolor effects on Lotus n leaves..so I decided to give watercolor background..for this I have used distress inks ..I have also used shabby white embossing enamel and ultra thick black embossing enamel..and to give diemension to leaves I have used foam tape in one leaf n bud..stamp sentiment from my stash..and word sending is from DCAM chiplets. Finally did layering with pink n iris folded cardstock.

My 3rd card:



In this card I did stenciling in background using distress inks picked raspberry and peeled paint and spritzs water through stencil....I have used a circle white diecut to highlight my flowers ..used ice candy glitter on that... finally used birthday sentiment chiplets from DCAM n happy stamp from my stash..did layering with black n folded iris cardstock.

Hello crafty friends!
Today it's my turn to inspire you using our November DT kit...and I have used New critter sheet baby boy and made a baby announcement cards in fancy folds .when I started working with this card I didn't have any idea that this will turn so pretty..as in real it looks so pretty n hand painted look, for this watercolor critter sheets.. I have made one Z fold  box card..and another slider pop-up card..there are many tutorials with various versions on net with sizes.
My first card- Z fold box card:










I have used iris card stock and did cloud distressing on background using cloud cutout and distress oxides and at the bottom part I did hills using another cutouts and bundle sage distress oxides....for cloud n hill cutout I have used DCAM dies ( see pictures)


Then I fussy cut all images from critter sheets and roughly arranged on my card on required placed..and when I was happy with the layouts,then  finally using glue n foam tapes I have stuck the images on my card base..
Then using glossy accent and ice candy glitter ,highlighted few places..you can see in picture
For grass I have used punch boarder on iris card stock and distress it with same 3 distress oxides..for distressing BG,and all I have used similar tone of Colors as my critter sheets..and that's giving nice painted look to my card🙂

My second card- slider pop-up card:






In this card more or less everything is similar..same distress oxides n cloud background.. fussy cutting of critter sheets n using images on required placed with glue n foam tape..here I have used two more stamped sentiments and used pearl rhinestone for emblisments.
