Christmas Cards with Kripa Koushik

Hello friends,

My project today is a pair of Christmas cards using a few of the beautiful Christmas 
themed 2crafty chipboard pieces.

As always, I started by applying a coat white gesso on all the chipboard pieces. The Xmas Deer Head and St. Nick Snowflakes were coloured using stamp pads. Once the ink dried, the Xmas deer head was stamped over with a script stamp & gold acrylic paint.

 For this  card, the Mini Reindeer and St.Nicks Snowflakes were coloured with stamp pads. The Mini Bauble Tree was painted with gold acrylic paint. I cut the snowflake in two and tucked them under the pattern papers.

Thank you for visiting us today.

Halloween by Elena Martynova

Happy Halloween to everybody!!!
 Since we are in October & 2 Crafty Chipboard have some REALLY COOL Halloween
 themed chipboard pieces!
I thought it would be a perfect time to create this canvas!
My family doesn't celebrate Halloween, but I still like to do something for the this holiday.

I've used bits of
Chicken Barbed Wire Small 
 to decorate the edges of the canvas.
 It is painted with black acrylic paint and covered with Prima Metallique Wax White Gold

 Figurines of the witch, the cat and the pot I took from a Halloween Set 3 

Started with adding a bit of texture paste to Graveyard Tree with bats.
 Then covered black paint and Prima  Sparks - Unicorn's Hair. 

 I coated the gravestones with craquelure varnish to create the effect of old cracked tombstones.

 Look at this gorgeouse Halloween Night Title!
 I really like how the letters "L" put on funny shoes!

'Treasure' Layout and progress video by Hetty Hall

Hi there 2Crafty fans and welcome back to the 2Crafty blog,
so happy you could join us.


I used a 'Christmas Chipboard' piece on this non Christmas layout and I think it 
fits in perfectly with the other gorgeous 2Crafty pieces as I added the same
 colour to all the 'leave' chipboard pieces to keep a uniform palette.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Products Used:
- Leafy Christmas Frame 1
- Leaf Set 1
- Foliage Set 5
- Chicken Wire
- Mini Word Set 1

I also added some gold wax to all the pieces to make them
look more vibrant rather then one flat colour.

I added some copper ink to the 'Chicken Wire' chipboard piece as well as the sentiment,
 I don't like to use too many different colours as I think it confuses and doesn't blend well.

I also added some gorgeous 49 and Market flowers and laser cuts.

A few prills were added for that finishing touch.

That is it again for now, thanks so much for popping in.

Until next time....

October Inspiration with Lisa Amiet

Hello 2Crafty Peeps!

It's Lisa here today to share some more inspiration with you.
Isn't the year flying past?!

Today I have a layout that I created featuring my son,
one of my permanent models ;)
Can I say I LOVE how this turned out, I hope you do too!

I am a huge fan of black backgrounds, and I love this one! It's not all black ;)
There are some splashes of my favourite colour!

The feature piece of this layout has to be the 'Fiddlesticks Panel',
 that I have finished the same colour as my splatters and papers :)

I have also used one of the Geo tags from the 'Assorted Mini Camera Set',
that I have embossed it white. 

I have also used a couple of the 'Triangle Clusters', also embossed in white.
I have then added some word stickers to them.

Oh that panel is one of my favourites! 

A pic of the dimension to the page.

I hope you like what I have created!
Some inspiration for you to take some crafty time out today.

Until next time!

"Just love our Story" by Marie Sabatier

My second inspiration for this month of October. Let's forget that it's autumn. 
With this picture of my second son and his girlfriend I wanted colors. 

It's so beautiful to love ...

To highlight my picture I chose the chipboards Handdrawn-heart-frames
They are great that allows to frame well.

I applied a layer of white gesso on it and then a Twilight Blue Slate and a Midnight Sapphir color embossing powder.

For other chipboards I also applied a layer of white gesso that I covered with lilac ink to match with the bottom of my paper and bring softness and a little wax for a touch of shine

To remember do not forget the year!!!!

And for the hearts I applied Cuckoo Clock Cardinal color embossing powder

As always to finish the embellishments that will bring out these beautiful chipboards

The chips used:

- Just love our story
- Handdrawn-heart-frames
- Tiny leaf stems
- 2018
- ATC-Tiny-Hearts et Stars 

Here is another moment of pleasure that I hope to have shared with you

See you soon!
