Magical Unicorn cards with Dress My craft products

Hello Friends!!!

This is Anita here with another post full of super cute projects. It's the day for the Magical Unicorn and I have three pretty cards made with this amazing collection.

Unicorns are a favorite with everyone and if you have three different cutie unicorns on your table, then all you do is smile . I am simply in love with this paper pack . The beautiful rainbow designs, clouds and castle and the dancing baby unicorns will steal your heart for sure .
The papers are sturdy and smooth to touch making them perfect for albums, money wraps and cards .
If you want to make albums with this paper pack , then follow my post here , where I have used the Little Miracle baby themed paper pack .

Today I have three cards that are not only good to look but are so easy that they make really good creative pass time especially for children . So let your kids use this pack and the die cuts to make the Magical Unicorn cards this summer vacation.

Here are my cards .





 For this card, I have used the pattern paper as background. I used some die cut clouds in card stock and vellum and added the ready die cuts . I also added some rainbow glitter powder and some DMC sequins here . Can you see the sparkling effect here ???

 Here I have taken a die cut background on the colourful rainbow paper. Then just added the die cut pieces to finish it . You can make them in 10 minutes !!!!!

This is my favorite as I love making Shaker cards . I simple created a Shaker window using half circle die. I added a banner die cut and set it all agsinst the pink pattern paper card base . This looks so pretty !!!. I finished it with some sparkle rainbow glitter .

In My Heart Mini Album

Hello Friends,

This is Anita here . I hope you all are having lot of fun crafting and exploring new creative techniques. I would really like you all to visit the Dress My Craft Store to see the amazing range of products that are just perfect for card making, scrap booking and flower making. I especially love the new paper packs and have created a variety of projects with them. The love themed paper packs are just a treat for the eyes and one cannot have enough of them.

You can see my cards that I made with the In My Heart paper  HERE.

Today, I have a project that I have made with lot of hard work. The 6 x 6 Love themed Mini Album. This is a super easy mini album and looks great with the new papers and the acetate pages. These see through pages add lot of depth and beauty to the album and gives a break from the more usual kind of albums that we make.

A little note about the In My Heart paper----These papers are beautifully designed and are so versatile that one can use them for any purpose. The designs are both shabby chic and vintage and have floral prints that look so dainty and delicate. The pastel coloured roses against the pink and black background really bring out the sheer beauty of these papers. This collection has 12 x12,  6 x6 and a coordinating motif sheets that are great for making embellishments. These 270 gsm thick papers are smooth t tough with excellent quality.
You can find this collection HERE.

Now on to my album.
This is a perfect album for special occasions and can be given to both male and female. It can hold more than 50 photos and have lot of space for journaling. The tag punch and the new border lace punch makes decorating the album and easy task. I have used acetate sheets for some pages and once  you see the album , you will know the difference.

Here are a few glimpses of my album followed by a walk through the album via a video.

Creative Embellishments with craft punches

Hello

This is Anita here. Today,  I have some super easy creative embellishments on my table. But before that let me show you the fabulous Punches launched by Dress My Craft. Ever since they have arrived on my table, I have become addicted to them . For the first time, an Indian brand has brought out craft punches and it is indeed a very happy moment for me.

The craft punches come in 3 designs and there is corner rounder punch with 3 size corner specifications.
The Rectangular Tag Punch
The Rounded Tag Punch
The Banner Punch.

These punches are really handy paper craft tools that make crafting super easy. Reasonably priced, these punches help you to make creative use of our scrap papers that we otherwise throw away.
I have used my scrap papers to create many tags and banners and have placed them creatively so that they result in beautiful paper embellishments. These handmade projects are so versatile that you can use them anywhere like on cards, scrapbooks, gift boxes,paper bags or use them like tags itself.
This has been possible because, I could quickly make my tags etc using the punches.

Super handy and light weight, the punches can give various designs and one can even cut any width and not only the alignment measurements given. For this, you should turn over the punch and slde in the paper strip. Place it well in between the cutting line and eye ball the strip so that there is equal mark on both sides and then punch. A smooth butter like punch, makes it possible to cut thick card stocks, vellum and even thin foam sheets.

Here is a gallery of my photos with the creative embellishments. There is also video tutorial to make these. So do watch it.

I have also added another example to show you the variation that you can make.



Rounded tag punch is used for the above project.

Note the shaker element added. A close up view.

So now you must be clear, how these tag punches can convert ordinary pieces of scrap papers to such beautiful embellishments. You can make many of these and use them on your projects to add the extra beauty.

DRESS MY CRAFT---NEW PRODUCTS AND A REVIEW

Hello !!!!!!

I am Anita here and how are my dear crafter friends doing !!!! All geared up for New Year !!!! OMG!!!! It's almost here !!! Can you believe this !!! It seems yesterday that we just started the year on a new note and a new team and here we are standing to wave it goodbye.

How time flies !!!! I still remember my post first post with Crafters Corner blog almost two years back. I was fortunate enough to write the first blog post for Crafters Corner. And what a journey has been. The baby has grown from toddler to a well groomed lady and here she is on our first in house brand ----DRESS MY CRAFT.


Welcome all !!!!! as I present to you our first and most popular product the Floral Paper Collection - ORIENTAL AND EXOTICA---  Premium Cardstocks with world class quality and every crafters dream.

FLORAL EXOTICA
FLORAL ORIENTAL


And not only that another feather in the cap is the launch of two new powders- FROSTED SUGAR POWDER AND SPARKLING DUST.
SPARKLING DUST

FROSTED SUGAR POWDER.

Both the powders are of extremely super quality and add extra beauty to the projects.

So in my post today, I will reveal all the secrets of these products and bring to your a deeper insight into the above.

Here is a comparative table about the two papers that will be clearly explain you the pros and cons of both papers.

             PROPERTIES
                 EXOTICA
             ORIENTAL
     PAPER THICKNESS                               285 GSM                                   285   GSM                             
     TEXTURE                                           SMOOTH                                      SMOOTH

PAPER  STRENGTH                                  LESS STIFF                                      MORE     STIFF

WATER ABSORBENT                                 HIGH                                                 LOWER

STAMPING                                           GOOD WITH ARCHIVAL                           SAME

HEAT EMBOSSING                                          GOOD                                           GOOD


DISTRESSING                                           GIVES A SMOOTH BLEND                      SAME

DIE CUTTING                                             GOOD                                      GOOD


WATER COLOURING                                      GOOD                                     GOOD

FLOWER MAKING                                    OPEN BLOOMS                          CLOSELY COMPACT BLOOMS                

                                                                                                                          

So that will give you clear comparison between both papers. But that is not all. I have visual pictures to show you about all the qualities of these papers.

You will need two huge cups of coffee or tea to sit back and relax because this is one heavy post loaded with pictures and of course a video ---because seeing is believing !!!!!
                       
                                               Heat embossing is good


  Good resist embossing

     good distressing paper

       good for stamping especially if stamped with waterpproof  like Archival Jet Black

       water based inks tends to bleed a little

              Awesome Die cutting


      good for water colouring


         gives nice clear embossing

So thats it !!!! I hope it is quite clear by now as to how wonderful these card stocks are. I would call them the ultimate card stock as these have multiple qualities.

  Now on to the another product that is the talk of the crafting community because of its awesome quality.

                                               Sparkling Dust and Frosted Sugar Powder


Sparkling dust is a fine shimmery powder, almost weightless nd gives a smooth glittery look to the surface where it is applied. It sticks well with most adhesives and is bright white in colour. However this powder DOES NOT HEAT EMBOSS. So avoid using it for the same.

Frosted Sugar Powder as the name suggests is like fine sugar but a little granular and has very little shimmer or sparkle. It has a translucent frosted look and can be used for mixed media, on flowers, etc. This too cannot be used for Heat Embossing.


Here are the two flowers that I made using the Exotica and Oriental paper. After reading my blog post till now, it will become very clear to you which flower is made from which paper. Can you guess ??
Let me tell you--the flower on the top is made from Exotica paper as it is more open while the flower at the bottom is from Oriental paper as the bloom is more closed and compact.



                                               
                                               Here are the flowers with the new powders
                                                 
                                                       Oriental Bloom with Sparkling Dust

 Here is the video to show you in real way how wonderful these papers are.
