DMC Stencils grab bag!

Rupa here this THURSDAY with an upcycled project using the newly launched stencils by Crafters Corner!

Yes...these are DRESS MY CRAFT STENCILS (set of 12) amazingly intricate stencils.

These are A4 size stencils and can be used in many many ways...your creativity, your imagination and these stencils can create some amazingggg projects!
Here is one stencil that I have played with for this entire project! The beauty of these stencils is that there a a lot of elements in one stencil, there is a focal point and in the back ground, there are other small elements too which can be used separately or as a whole!

For today's project, I have upcycled an old wooden stool, a heirloom from my native place which is sure  to be more that 75 yrs!

Well at the end, this looks even more antique and precious and ofcourse a statement piece!

Let's jump start to the process...

I start by sanding the top and then apply a coat of gesso. Once dry, I have used the stencil and done a double shaded stenciling using chalk paints.

Next, using modepodge, I have decoupaged a floral tissue on top of the stenciled area. It amazing how the stencil work is seen thru the tissue!

Here is a close up of the tissue decoupaged on top of the stenciling! I love how vintage it is already looking! 

 I have then masked all the 4 sides and then done some distressing using  brush and paint.

I stenciled some little elements from the stencils on all the four sides and repeated the decoupage of smaller prints on the 4 sides.


Using some home made modelling paste and the same stencil, I have created texture on all the 4 sides. The intricate pattern of the stencil gives a nice, crisp texture!

Once the modelling paste is dry, I mask the sides again and have used chalk paints to created a shaded look .

Time to remove the masking tape and revel the final look! I did some dry brushing to highlight the textures and also to give some age to this project!


Then sealed the entire project with 2 coats of varnish and the stool was ready to make an appearance!

I love how this ONE STENCIL has helped me give this project an antique and priceless look! You can get creative and use the stencil in more than one way! I have combined decoupage with stenciling to create this project and loved the outcome!
Do let me know your thought about this project and GRAB that BAG of STENCILS today!

I will see you see you soon with more inspirations on these stencils!

Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling.

Album made with Scrapberry's "In Bloom" Papers

Hey Everyone,

Welcome to Crafters corner blog, this is Sampada and today I have a very beautiful project to show u..Yes! 
You all know I love making albums and today I made a beautiful scrapbook album using Scrapberry's "In Bloom" paper pack... this is a gorgeous collection in pastel color having lovely designs on it. I bet you will love each and every single paper in this collection and the best part is the sticker sheet...Oh you will love it!
There are two sheets having beautiful sentiments written on can cut that and use in your project and you will see how I have used them... there are mini notecards as well which used on the cover page by making multiple layers of it.

So first let's see the project,

Isn't these papers are gorgeous?
They are..believe me...

I made a simple album base using white cardstock and then cut these papers as per the required size.
These papers are so very well coordinated with each other that you can do mix and match so easily.

Then I cut all the sentiments from the two sheets which are in the paper pack, so you can see a hand-full of sentiments and notecards.

I gathered the flowers, did matting of these sentiments to use on cover page, used DMC fashion and bubblegum accessories to make the hanging charms on the spine. Also I did edge distressing using Tim Holtz Paper distresser. And I made quick and simple pages using these papers and sentiments and then I embellished my cover page.

I hope you get some inspiration from this project and do share your reviews in comment section below.
