Tote bag with DMC fabric transfer and stencils

Helllo crafty folks!

Rupa here on a Thursday with an amazing project share using the FIRST OF IT'S KIND FABRIC TRANSFER technique launched by Dress My Craft!
Yes, it's fabric transfer in just a few steps!
Here are a few things to keep in mind for this technique...
1. The technique can be done on ANY fabric that can be ironed and can withstand the heat from ironing. It should not shrink or burn!

2. Be patient and take your time to iron the transfer and your regular iron on COTTON mode should do. No need to use a steam iron.

3. Give sufficient time for cooling and don't be in a hurry to peel the transfer sheet.

4. MILD HAND WASH only and that to with cold water.

With all these in mind, you can just go about using this transfer technique to create some amazing stuff for the home like tote bags, cushion covers, pillow covers, aprons, journal covers and many more. It's your creativity and imagination at play!

Let me tell you it is the first of its kind and now fabric transfer can be done in a jiffy!
Here is what I made and I have a full video on this.

Do watch till the end and let me know if you have any queries. The fabric flower charm is totally hand made and has the faux leather tassel too hanging from DMC.

So, anyone shopping with me???? Dosen't the tote bag look super stylish.

Watch the full video here..

I will see you soon with another project .
Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling.

Follow your Heart : Golden Canvas

Good Morning Everyone

Someone told me always Follow your Heart, so for today's post I have small canvas which I have made to gift to someone who always follow her heart .....

Its super easy and quick to make, and I find it perfect to gift someone just to remind them how special they are.

I have a step by step pictorial - How to build this GOLDEN CANVAS 

I have taken small canvas 8x8 inches and have applied one layer of Black Gesso.
 STEP 2 
Once gesso dries up, cover the entire surface with texture paste clear crackle
and allow to air dry or you are impatient like me use your heat gun to expedite the process.

Look at these cracks.... 

 Once the crackle dries, I have applied texture paste silver antique using ranger stencils bubble.

STEP 4  
 Once dried up, apply randomly brillance wax ( any color of your choice)

STEP 5  
Take Dress My craft pattern papers any print of your choice, cut thin strips and distress the edges all around the strips and squares using Vintage Photo.

 I have randomly pasted the pattern pieces around.

To tone down or give the frame antique look the I have used ranger gold embossing powder

 Its time to assemble all the flowers and frames on canvas.
The pink big bloom is handmade and for the same I have used DMC glitter and thread pollens.
Rest other flowers are from Prima.

VIOLA its done :)

 I hope you liked my super easy canvas and I also hope was able to inspire you all.

Glitters and Micro Pearls

Hi friends...Dr Sonia here on Crafters Corner blog after nearly a year!!!
Life threw me a few curves last year and I had to take a break from DT work now things have settled  down and so thrilled to be rejoining back with Shalini in the capacity of Blog Educator which gives me a lot of freedom which was not possible in the role of DT.
I am a bit rusty so please bear with me while I ease into things and share a fairly simple post.
I am not going to bore you with my usual long essays in this post as the gorgeous products I am showcasing are super simple to use and they literally do shine on their own!!
I am sure you will agree that Pop Up Cards are very special cards not only because of the fun element but because they are flat folding and easy to mail. The only problem with pop up card designs is to add that extra bit of jazzing without adding bulky embellishments and flowers!

I had actually made the basic framework of this whimsical pop up box card even before Shalini sent me her gorgeous DMC products.Even though the card had a lot of beautiful elements, it looked really dull and because I wanted to keep it flat for mailing I was struggling with how to embellish it.
DMC products
The beautiful newly launched glitter array and special micro and micro mini pearls from DMC helped transform the Pop Up Card creating areas of interest and beauty without making it bulky!

I used glossy accents  on the mushroom which by the way is a beautiful Marianne die I got on "Preorder" from Crafters Corner. Like many of you I too am extremely apprehensive about directly ordering from overseas .....what with the unreliability of the postal services and the unpredictability of the customs duties which can be levied! It was so easy to preorder...all it entailed was emailing  Crafters Corner!!

You can actually use any kind of glue but I find that using a really tacky and fast grabbing glue like glossy accents and Aleene's tacky glue made sticking glitters and pearls really fast and less messier. In this instance, the floppy cattail reeds I applied the glossy accents to made them stiffer and nicely rigid holding their shape better.
 Just look at the beautiful look of the rainbow glitter chunks.....when I read the label rainbow I was actually afraid to experiment with it... but oooh they are now my favorite type of glitter creating such a unique dazzle!!

Wherever you want a subtle shimmer, opt for micro sparkling dust or microfine glitter . And if you want a bit more pizzaz opt for the sparkling dust.

In the photo above you can see how dull parts of the card originally looked before adding glitters .It may be okay for a muted card but  it's not the look you would want for a happy looking birthday card! The "birthday" was outline with  rainbow glitter and oooh it dazzles so prettily even from across the room!

The little mushrooms and the cute mice and hedgehog [from Penny Black]all have subtle micro sparkling dust and micro fine glitter on them!

And that is how the sparkling Pop Up Card looks  beside the bonsai orange tree in my garden!

Hello Everyone,

Today its my turn to share some inspiration here :). About this project, its super easy and fun project. I always love to create something differently. 

Anyway my project is made with lots of Dress my craft minis and few things from my stash. You can see how easy this to create.... 

Base of this mini cafe, i made by altered hoop (8 inch Diameter ). I took the hoop, and prime with black gesso. Few of the corner side i did stencil work for texture look. But its optional. And final coloring is Prima marketing metallic copper. After drying add one layer of fabric design then pattern paper design (G45 Off to the Roses )

And the Shelf part - 5X7 reverse side of canvas. 

These small wooden pieces you will get, when you buy 8x10 or larger size box canvas

And finally

How is it? This super easy cool project :)
I hope you have wonderful creative weekend
