Foiling all the way!

 Hello everyone! How are you all doing?
Im back with a brand new post for all of you. Well my latest obsession is Foil! I love it! It just adds the perfect bling to any project! I'm going to share few ways of using foils so lets get started!

The easiest way to add foil is using a Minc Machine! You can print out your designs using a Laser printer. You can also get designs printed from local printing shops and add foil to them.

The minc machine comes with few pre printed pieces for you to use. All you have to do is - switch on the machine, press the golden button and press it till the light moves front of no.2 once it changes from red to green means the machine has heated and is ready for your use. Place your paper in the plastic folder add the foil on top - make sure its always shiny side up no matter what method of foiling you are using. 

Feed it into the machine 

the rollers push the folder out of the machine 

And voila its done! 

The next way is using double sided adhesive sheets. Ive used Elisabeth Crafts adhesive sheets for today's tutorial. 

Peel off one layer of the non stick sheet from the adhesive sheet  

Place it on top of your cardstock and burnish well. 

Next you can die cut or use directly as you like. 

Peel off the top layer from the die cut 
Add your foil and burnish well

As you remove the foil you'll see your piece is ready!

Foiling die cuts has never been this easy!!


Cut a piece of paper and add the tacky tape is any design you like. You can make stripes, checks, horizontal stripes and much more!

Next i've used 2 colours of the foils here for the background 

Just place your foil and rub slightly and peel off and you are done! 

Here's a card i created using the background we just created! The flowers and leaves used in this project are made from the Prima adhesive rub-ons Keep reading i've shared the tute for those :)

This is a great way of using foil for your stamps! The effects can vary depending on the papers you use for this effect! 
I've selected this drops stamp for this demo 

Stamp it to the cardstock using Versa mark ink 

Add the sticky embossing powder to it 

And heat set it. Place your foil as soon as you heat set it. You need to work very quickly in this method cause the foil will not adhere if the melted powder is not hot enough!


Take a piece of carstock, cut the design from the sheet you like , peel it and press it to your cardstock 

The sheet comes with a wooden stick use it for burnishing your design. You will notice the colour of the rub on will change once it is properly adhered to your base. 

Peel of the plastic sheet and add your foil sheet 

Burnish the foil using the same stick 

Peel it off and you are done!

Here's a card i made using the rub ons!

And here's another one! 

Hope you all enjoyed today's post!

Graphic 45 and Folk Art paints...a fusion!

Good morning!
This is Rupa and welcome to Crafters Corner blog today. I am back with a fusion project today! If you know me by now, your guess should be that this too is an upcycled/recycled altered project. 
I have not one but 2 projects to share with you.
Once again I have played with a discarded look at the original box and I am sure none of you would have even bothered to hoard it! 
I knew this one had potential only for the reason that the inside of the box had this lovely gold satin fabric lining and it was just beckoning for a second call!
My last project was a keepsake box for “the man” and this time I dint want to spare the DIVA of the house!
I have worked with Graphic 45 papers and Folk Art multi surface paints . Lets move to the process...
Step1- I mixed some gesso to the folk art paints and dabbed it on the top  and sides of the box. I have played with an unusual color palette this time, the inspiration being the lovely papers itself!
Next, I went about adhering the paper with modge podge. I have used the Graphic 45 Couture collection papers and I must say such an elegant, stylish one just perfect for the Diva...what say????
Step 2- Once the paper was modge podged, I applied a coat of matte varnish to seal it. The base of the box has a lovely blue shade which I applied directly on to the box with a sponge.
 I have stenciled all around the top lid and the base with contrasting paints, all of which you will see on the pattern paper.
Step3-  I loved the oranges and the blues and greens and couldn’t stop the addition of a metal clasp opener and the ornate corners around the base. The box too got a coat of varnish.
Are you ready for the peek inside and yes, I have surprise in there too!
And here we go...the box opens....
Step4- I have lined the top portion with Graphic 45 Typography collection! So vintage and I love the scripty feel to it! I have created separators using chipboard and some gold pattern paper from my stash. The pillow for the watches is made with an old denim and sponge and fits in snugly in the compartment to hold more than 5 watches!
Are you ready for the you see a cute little thing hanging off one of the separators???
That’s the one...This paper of Graphic 45 is so so adorable, I couldn’t resist making a keychain/charm with it. Perfect for the Diva again. This is also from the Couture collections and has these lovely images of ladies on a stamp sized like a passport photo.
Step5-I sandwiched 2 images with a black card stock just so to make it sturdy. Next I punched a hole and then dipped the sandwich into hot melting UTEE (Clear)! Once that cooled, it was ready to take on the load of the charms!
 I have used this chunky metal butterfly and tried my hands with beads and wires from my stash. Finally added a long bottle charm filled with colored beads and this long, chunky dangler was ready!
I attached a metal key ring to it and this can be used as a key chain or even hung stylishly from the hand bag!
I am already thinking of the possibility of doing so many of them from this single sheet of, love!
A must have in your collection and what more they are on a discount too at the moment.
That brings us to the end and I thank you all for visiting this page today. Would love to hear from you and I will be back soon...yes, with another altered project!
Until my next creative journey,
Happy Crafting and recycling,

Altered Ring Box

Hello Everybody,

This is Suzna here to share with you a treasure altered ring box. I used so much of metal effects on this project to add an layers of metallic paints to this project. Here is what the project looks like. Video tutorial available at the end of this post. 

In my project I was trying to capture exactly this – the magical look of a treasure box in a middle of a key Lock with rustic look, flowers, small key and a glitter beads.
I also thought that Finnabair’s style would be the perfect way to recreate my idea  with colors and texture.

some of you might have seen on my Facebook or my blog about ring box decor, and i got many quires about this creation. I've noticed many of them interested in this cute decor, so i planed make a video and inspired you

As for the inspiration behind the theme...:). I’ve always been fascinated by miniatures. although when I was little I used do play with barbies and try to make my own things for barbies.

I hope you will find a moment to hop over to CraftersCorner blog to view my today's post and tutorial. Thank you again for visiting today and for all your lovely comments in my previous post. Every single one of them is appreciated and received with a great joy.

Hope you have a fabulous Day!

Big crafty hugs
