Stack and Store Daubers And Plumeria Making

Hello To all !!!!!

This is Anita here and I am back with loads of information and techniques with you. I love to share everything that I know related to crafting as I believe that Sharing increases my knowledge!!!

This post is regarding a new product--Daubers. These were recently launched by Heartfelt Creations and We at Crafters Corner have it in the store for you . You can check them out here.

These come in pack of 6 and 30 and as the name suggests -these daubers can be stacked and stored on top of each other. So let us read more about them.

So let's begin our question answer round !!!

* What are daubers?
Ans. Daubers are finger foam applicators used to colour images or any area with ink by holding the dauber with a finger .

The New stack and store daubers have also the same use only that their shape is different.

* How are the new Stack and Store daubers different for the previous one ?
Ans. The new Stack and store daubers have been so designed that they can be stacked on top of each other, hence storing them makes it easy as it requires less space, the daubers get protected from dust and their shape is triangular while the old one is round.
The new dauber has a tapered foam pad but the old one has a rounded dome  shaped foam pad.

* How does the difference in shape makes coloring easy?
Ans. Take your coloring to a whole new level with the Stack and Store Precision Sponge Dauber! The unique design of the precision corners allow you to color intricate details on stamped images with detailed precision, while the center of the dauber allows you to work in a circular motion to achieve a soft and subtle shading effect! The stackable, space saving design makes for easy storage and keeps your daubers together all in one place!

*Are the new daubers easy to store ?
Ans.The stackable, space saving design makes for easy storage and keeps your daubers together all in one place!

So now that all the questions regarding these daubers have been answered, let us see a video that will show you the practical application of these daubers.

This is a live video on FB I did a few months ago. 

Now let us move on to flower making using these new daubers,

The new talk of the town is the Tropical Paradise collection from Heartfelt Creations released this month and they are mind blowing !!! The flower featured in this collection is the PLUMERIA or FRANGIPANI and they are so beautiful.

You can check this wonderful collection here

So I chose these flowers today to show you how I made them. You can check the making the video above.

Here are a few projects I made using the Tropical Paradise collection.

Playful with MFT stamps & Die

Good Morning Everyone...

I hope you all are doing good!!
Today I am going to showcase MFT - My Favourite Things Stamp and Dies, recently they are the hottest selling brand around Indian Crafting space.

MFT came into existence in the year 2006 and MFT - My Favourite Things offers fresh and fun range of stamps and dies.
For the month of april I got the opportunity to play around with the MFT stamps & dies. I always wanted to try something which is simple and clean and with them I got the opportunity to do the same.
Their stamps are super fun and adorable, lets get started....

My Favourite things stamp set- playful pups 
Distress inks 

          I have stamped the Playful pups stamp set using Archival ink jet black on the Card stock... and water colored the images using Distress inks (please avoid my coloring, I am super bad with it)

Once coloured I have cut the images with its coordinating Die.

Now moving over to Blueprint Tag builder die 5 
"This 18 piece set includes: Traditional tags (3) 1 3/8” x 3 ¼”, Fishtail flag 5/8” x 2 ¾”, Fishtail label ½” x 1 7/8”, Banner ½” x 3 ¾”, Peek-a-boo heart border/confetti 1 ½” x ¼”, Peek-a-boo XO border/confetti 1 7/8” x ¼”, Arrows A 2” x ¼”, Arrow B 2” x 3/8”, Looped border 1 ¼” x 3/8”, Reinforcement A 5/8” x 3/8”, Reinforcement B 5/8” x ¼”, Hearts (5) ½”, 3/8”, ¼”, ¼”, ¼”.- MFT WEBSITE (source)

This set includes three tags, each featuring distinct accent details. One is a solid tag with a stitched perimeter, a second features stitching and a die-cut rectangular window, and a third includes two die-cut windows with stitched perimeters. The square window produces a secondary frame with double stitched border. Additional accents include a narrow fishtail flag, dimensional banner, reinforcement options for the tags, a peek-a-boo heart border, and a variety of small shapes and confetti elements.- MFT WEBSITE (source)

Below is the referral image depicting to what ways you can coordinate the tags, In total 8 ways you can play with dies and assemble the tags, but I believe possibilities are endless.

I have created some really simple cards using the above mentioned craft supplies and I am totally loving them. The paper stack is basic stripes and I personally feel it looks amazing.

In the above Image I used the yummy Dress my craft sequins Little hearts to complete the look of my card. In the below image I have used the confetti die cut from the die set and added some more sequins from Dress my crafts.

Colouring these tiny little images was so much fun and I find them adorable. Playful pups stamps set is really adorable.

Moving to tag builder die set I have made some simple and cute tags, you can make your own fun little tags and are just perfect. I really loved the crisp deep stitched edges this die gives. 

                                                        Some more tags 

I hope you liked my basic card and tags, I personally felt doing clean and simple cards is way more tough then the other cards .

Hope I was able to inspire you all to take out your favourite stamp sets and enjoy water colouring them. Don't forget to leave some love.

I shall be back soon with some more techniques and ways we can use this Blue print tag builder die.
Keep watching the space.

Have a nice day

Color Therapy with PLAID!

Good morning!
Its Thursday and am back with another PLAID play....this time its play with colors! Yes the range of colors in the MULTI SURFACE paints and CHALK paints is amazing and  Crafters Corner corner being the sole distributor offers them at the best prices!

This project is very different from my usual ones...lots of colors and the PRODUCT HIGHLIGHT for today is the FINE TIP TOPS!

Apart from this I have used the flower making stylus, pencil with the rubber at the back and brushes with rounded wooden edges...yes NOT the bristles this time! I have used the back end of brushes...are you wondering what is it that I have been working on????

Well here is my first experiment with DOT MANDALAS! Its so much fun and most importantly so therapeutic to play with colors and dots of various sizes.

I thought I would start with a small box but I liked it so much I decided to do a bigger version of the same.
First project is on a 4x4 inch packaging box where I have used a range of multi surface paints and I have used mostly the writer tips for the small dots.

These come in 3 sizes..0.24, 0.37 and 0.52! The smallest one gives you a dot so small, its unbelievable and also the pressure you give matters. These caps easily fit into the Folkart color bottles, so its just attaching the cap and you start your work. You can see the different sizes here!
I have written the sizes on the cap so that it is easy for me!

I started with dividing the box into segments to help me place the dots and I started with varying sizes of dots using, stylus, back of pencils and brushes.

The small box has a colorful range of greens and yellows and let me take you thru the various stages...The multi surface paints used are Citrus green,Turf, Yellow ochre and vintage white.

Here is another stage..

For the first time, I finished this box in an hour! It's just that I dint want to is a great feeling to concentrate and work on dots, just like meditation!
Dots so fine, is possible only with the Tip tops!

So I took out another box, a discarded faux leather cutlery box which measures 14x14...I know that's huge! I start with a coat of black gesso, as this art looks best on a black background.

 For this project I have used Chalk paints, Patina, Nautical, Yellow Crochet, Summer Porch, Grotto.

These are so creamy and thick that the dots you place are so vibrant and full! You will understand this if you start making one...Trust me, it is such a great feeling. Just the kind of relaxation you get while doing an adult coloring book.

I really had a problem as to when to stop. Each circle that I made, it looked prettier and I loved the flow of this project..

Added some bling to it so that I could prolong this project, lol! Finally I could call the end!

I painted the rim of the lid with Yellow crochet (love this color) and the base with a contrasting Grotto!

Dosen't it look colorful different from its original version! The chalk paints adhere to leather too so easily...just 1 coat!

I hope this inspires you to look at paints, especially the CHALK PAINTS in a different light! Think out of the box to use them on different surfaces, experiment and share your work.

Do get in touch for any queries too.

Until my next Plaid play,
Happy crafting and recycling,
