Steampunk Cards By Priya Mishra

 Wish you a Very Happy New Year!
Welcome back to 2Crafty Chipboards blog, Priya with you today 
with my first project for the year using some gorgeous chipboard pieces.

I created two cards in steampunk style,
which is my favorite style to make any project.

2Crafty Products Used:

To begin with, I cut two papers in size 6inches x 4inches and layered them with clear gesso.
I used two different stencils and some texture paste to create some texture.
Using some stamps I created some more depth in the background.

I added colors, using Lindy's magical. Once my background is ready,
I started coloring my chipboards.
I used white embossing powder and heat set them.

I layered the chipboards on my cards. I used some cheese cloth around some area.
I added two Tim Holtz dolls as focal elements.
Sentiment chipboards are from two different sets and they were
also heat set with white embossing powder. 

I hope you like my cards.

By Charmane Sharp

Welcome back to the blog today.

Charmane here to reveal how multiple chipboard pieces
bring so much depth and contrast to a layout.

By varying your finishes slightly they all emerge from my
fussy cut items with contrasting shine and detail.

2Crafty chipboard used...

Mini #Word set 1
Heart Clumps
Pointed Doily Frames
Thick Moroccan Panel
Foliage set 1
Amelia Flower Stems small

Pointed Doilies have a pretty design to suit any layout. After coating all my 
pieces in Gesso I used Tattered Rose Oxide ink to cover the Doily and finished
with a coat of Tattered Rose Embossing Glaze.

I love the different shapes in the Leaves of the Foliage set adding
distinction amongst my embellishment cluster. An application of 
Evergreen Bough Oxide with a coat of Clear Embossing Powder for
a finishing sheen, helps them stand out.

Amelia Flower Stems have great curves to draw your eye, especially
when Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, and Evergreen Bough Oxide inks are applied. 
Complete with a coat of Clear Embossing Powder for shine.
The Moroccan Panel was cut into two pieces to add a little texture from my
clusters. I randomly dabbed some clear embosing liquid over the pieces and
heat set with Tea Dye Glaze. Then i rubbed the Tattered Rose Oxide ink pad
over the top.

Heart Clumps bring some love to my layout with a masculine feel by
coating in Hickory Smoke Embossing Glaze. Tucking around the layout
they add contrast.
My title is short and sweet. Using a domed sponged I blended
Evergreen Bough over it for a more solid colour and then added a coat
of Clear Embossing Powder.

Thanks for stopping by and I will share my next creation with you shortly.

Until next time...

"Memories" by Robin Schelin

Hi everybody! Welcome back to the blog.  

Now that the Holidays are behind us, it's time to settle in for some quality crafting time! 

Even thought it's still verrrrry cold outside, I decided to do a Winter layout with some pretty pink flowers to remind me that Spring is coming, and make feel warmer! lol!
Hope you like it.


2Crafty used:

Spring Flower Bunches
Lusius Swirl
Holly Twig Branches
Eve's Border 

First of all, I gave all the Chipboard a nice coating of white gesso to seal it.

Here is the beautiful Lusius Swirl. I first painted it with white Acrylic Paint, then heat embossed it with white Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. then tucked it in behind the photo.

On the Spring Flower Bunches, I painted them with pink, bronze and white Acrylic Paint trying to pull in the colors from the top patterned paper.

For the Holly Twig Branches that are here and on the bottom in the large flower cluster, I first painted them with grey Acrylic Paint, then swiped light grey paint over them.

I painted the title, Memories, with 3 different colors of pink Acrylic Paint for an ombre effect.

Eve's Border was painted with white Acrylic Paint wanting it to be a subtle separation between the 2 patterned papers.

The little swirlies were cut off of Lusius Swirl. Since the bottom swirl wasn't going to show because of the flowers on the right of the photo, I decided to cut it off, and cut the other 2 off of the one I didn't use. These were also heat embossed with white Ultra Think Embossing Enamel.

And there you have it. A Winter/Spring layout.  
Hope you like it and it inspires you in your creating!
Until next time, stay safe, and stay scrapbooking!

My Mother My Friend ~ by Lisa-Marie

 Hello 2C Fans!!

Today I'm sharing a layout featuring my mom and I.

I made use of these little gems when creating my layout:

I used a very dark cranberry mist on my title and a silver mist on my doilies - both elements were given a coat of Glossy Accents.

I used different coloured gel pens to highlight and decorate my flourish and I finished it off with a few swipes of glitter.

I used varying shades of pink Distress Crayons and Gelato's on my Flower Vine, smudging and blending with my finger as I went along, to achieve a shaded effect.  I highlighted it with a white gel pen before cutting it to fit on either side of my layered cluster.  They too, were given a coat of Glossy Accents.

Until next time!

'Family is Everything'
with Lisa Amiet

 Hello 2Crafty fans!
It's Lisa here today to share some more
album inspiration with you.

For this one, I have used some cute photos
of my Grandfather and his older sister.

2Crafty Products used:

For this page, 
I have used one of the 'Assorted Mini Camera Set',
which I have left raw. 

I have also used one of the '6 x 4 Phrase Stick Set 3' for my title,
and I have added some metal embellishments to. 

I have used some pieces of the 'Fencing Wire Panel',
that I have embossed in black and gold powders.

For this page, I have used one of the 'Mini Bicycles'
to continue the cycling theme of the page.

I have also used two of the 'Mini Family Icons'
on my page. I think these are so cute!

And finally a little more of the fencing panel pieces.
I hope that you like what I have created,
I am really happy with how this album is coming together.

Until next time!

NEW 2Crafty Chipboard 2022 mini release

Morning followers and firstly Happy New Year to all.

Well what a year we have all had and here at 2Crafty I can honestly
say it has been a challenging one as we have tried to navigate business
and personal challenges through this Pandemic.

Due to that fact you will have notice a lack of new products last year as
we just couldn't cope with everything that was presented to us.

Thankfully we have got through it and look forward to a better year and hope to be able to offer more new releases more often this year.

Today we share the first of these Mini Releases which will be available
for retailer to order immediately and please be sure to let your stockist
know if there are items you'd like ordered.


These steampunk themed items have been sitting in my design folder for sometime
and I love the addition of the chains, hearts and flourishes, making them a
little more versatile so they can be used on feminine pages as well as masculine.

Some more steampunk and industrial style items.

You'll notice a few familiar pieces amongst this release, and that is because
we are going to offer in some different sizes as requested so they can be used
in off the page projects as well.

Foliage are one of our biggest sellers, always nice to tuck in amongst
paper/fabric flowers.

Large 10" Wings for canvas', mini and large scissors to complement our
original medium size pack.

And as always we always have new titles which are definitely our biggest seller
and so easy to use and add to layouts, and can be altered to suit any
colour palette or theme.

A couple more Mini Word packs, gone with a couple of different fonts to
change things up.

Well there you have it, just a small release and we will be back sometime
in late Feb/early March with some more.

Thanks for your support.
