Hello friends!!!

How are your crafting days going by ?? I'm here to add more creativity to your craft life with the new 49 and Market stamps recently added to the Crafters Corner store. This is an amazing collection designed by the expert mixed media artist Gabrielle Pollocco. These stamps have been so designed that they provide ample scope to all those who are fond of doing mixed media projects. But you can even create many beautiful cards as well using this collection as I have shown you in my previous post here

49 and Market has a wide range of stamps designed to create texture on the projects be it brick background, cracked wall, stitches and also very shabby chic designs like Butterflies with grunge text. In combination with stamps, there are also pretty handmade flowers in shabby chic colours that coordinate well with the stamps.

Before I begin to show my project, there are few tips that I follow that makes my work easy. It depends from person to person as to how they proceed with their project.

1. Plan your project ahead-make a design in your mind as to how you would like give shape to your project.

2. Collect all the things that you will need. You can always have extra stencil designs on your table or some embellishments because a mixed media proceeds in its own flow and many new ideas may just pop up right on the table.

3. Always keep a balance between the embellishments, the central point that is the photo, and the surrounding elements.

4. Keep a check on colour palette-you do not want different colours shrieking out from various angles-a harmonious blend of colours is needed

5.Prepare in advance-colouring of embellishments, chip boards, die cuts, stamping and colouring, fussy cutting and all can be done in advance.

6. Keep a bottle of mister filled with water and some old rag handy. Keep cleaning your hands-mixed media is a messy art but you will love the mess!!

So just sit back and relax-here is the video on my layout using the fabulous 49 and Market stamps.

And here are few close ups of my project.

I'm Anita here and a warm hug and big hello to all my crafter friends at Crafters Corner . We have always, strived to bring new techniques and products at Crafters Corner to keep you all updated with the happenings in the crafting community.
So when I came to know about products from 49 and Market , I was so thrilled.

I am a huge fan of her work and religiously follow her for inspirations and ideas.

In this post today, I am featuring some stamps and my cards made with them with different backgrounds. I will be bringing more projects in my next post highlighting more on these . These are called Gabi's Texture Stamps and you can shop from them here

Here are my cards using these stamps and as I proceed, I will explain how I made them step by step .


Soak water colour paper from Brusto and spritz some water on it.
Colour the paper with distress inks-Picked Raspberry, Mustard seed and Spiced Marmalade. Darken the top edge with Distress ink Fired Brick.
With stencil- Moving Vines and Liquitex modelling paste, I added a design like trailing vines. Dry with heat gun.
With  Gabi's Stamp-Texture add some water droplets as shown with Archival Jet Black ink.
Add a sentiment with black ink using the stencil or you can add any sentiment of your choice.
To give a 3D look to the droplets, remove the paint from inside the droplets with a wet brush, as if you are lifting the paint . Dab with a tissue to dry. Add a dot of white acrylic paint.
Paint two butterflies , fussy cut and add Glossy Accents and sprinkle with Distress glitter.
Add some spritzed dots with white gesso. Add some mini flowers.

This card uses the beautiful flowers from 49 and market.
Distress the paper with Distress inks- Fired brick, candied apple , mustard seed and spiced marmalade.
Add some design in different corners using the stencil- Mask Mini with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.
Add some more textured design with the Gabi's Stamp- Daisies and Butterflies are free.
Tear the card stock diagonally from two corners till the center.
Add the Burlap die cut from Cherry Lynn designs and then add lace as shown. Add flowers from
Rustic Barn Medium Blooms and few leaves.
Add a sentiment.

This is my favourite card.
I loved its cool colour and this simple design.
For this card, I distress the card stock with a blend of Distress inks-Peacock feathers and cracked pistachio.
Then add some texture with Gabi's stamp-Butterflies are free and the leaf from Gabi's texture stamp
Stamp the leaf image with Versamark embossing pad and apply white Embossing powder.
Heat set with a heat gun to get this design. Tear the card stock into two halves roughly.
Distress the edges with Gathered Twigs Ink.
Score a dark brown card stock on the Martha Stewart score board at 1/8th inch interval.
Tear and adhere the green designed card stock as shown. Add a sentiment from Penny black stamps-Edge to Edge. Wrap twine around the card as shown.

This card has mixed media elements.
I loved creating the background of this card which has lots of texture and dimension.
To create the card, Spray the card stock with Distress spray Peeled paint, and Faded jeans.
Let it dry.
Add stitches all around the card using the Gabi's Line Stitch stamp using the Archival Back ink.
Add the brick wall image using the Gabi's Texture stamp.
Give scoring checkered lines on the score board.
Apply Prima Clear Crackle paste and let it dry.
Add some more texture using white modelling paste and stencil mini mask.
