Floral CAS Cards Designed by Preeti Datta, Feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hi folks!
Good Morning 🙂
Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you doing ?

Today, I’d like to share Four Floral CAS or Clean and Simple Style Cards designed using the new & absolutely gorgeous Roseate Paper Collection.

The floral images in this paper collection are beautiful & make perfect focal elements for all kinds of projects. All I needed to do was fussy cut some floral images and sentiments. No stamping or colouring required! In these cards, I’ve created different backgrounds using stencils, ink smooshing with inks to create a more organic look and loose water colouring. To add interest, I created ink splatter, added thread to some of the floral clusters and Nuvo drops for embellishment. The card panels were die cut & foam mounted on white A2 sized (4.25 by 5.5 inches) card bases.

2. Mix modelling paste with pigment powders and then apply the coloured pastes through stencils onto the prepared panels using a palette knife2

3. To add interest to the background, stamp using matching ink colors and also add some more color (and splatters) to the background using the same pigment powders & distress ink3

4. Fussy cut some of the beautiful images from the Roseate Paper Collection, these will be our embellishments4

5. Finally, gather some more elements like thread, lace, pearls, gauze, resin frames etc that may be needed while layering. For these cards, I decided to go simple & use only the fussy cut elements and some golden thread, adding some of the elements with 3d foam tape for added dimension. In the end, added some black and white ink splatter & perfect pearls. 5

Hi folks!
Good Morning 🙂
Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you doing ?

Today, I’d like to share a Cute Baby Mixed Media Card. This is a big sized card great for gifting. I’ve used the beautiful and totally adorable papers from Bob n Betty’s earlier collections, “Cuddling Cuties” and “Baby Bliss“. All of Bob n Betty’s paper collections have been brilliantly designed, so, it is very easy to mix and match papers from different collections, go back to the earlier releases and mix them with new ones. Sky is the limit with respect to matching elements and coming up with new combos 🙂

I also included a few elements from the “Glam Craft” collection. Both the cards are big sized, 5 by 9 inches. When I saw the pretty butterflies, birds and flowers, I was inspired by the theme of nature, so I added the title “Wild & Free” using alphabet beads, to both the cards.

The new Decoupage Specialty Paper Collections are perfect for vintage themed projects and they coordinate brilliantly with all the previous releases. It is super fun & easy to mix and match elements. The designs are gorgeous and these decoupage papers can be used for all kinds of paper crafting projects including decoupage, cards, scrapbooks, canvases, tags, art journalling etc. I would highly recommend checking out the numerous great examples on the Bob n Betty blog and Instagram page, made by the Design Teams over the years.

Process:

Took an 8 by 10 Canvas Board & applied a thick layer of heavy white gesso on it. To create texture in the background, created grooves in the wet gesso with the end of a paint brush & added few mini beads. Once, it was dry, sprayed on colors. For the focal image & titles, fussy cut elements from one of the papers in the Classics Collection, created a nest with sisal, dry hay, colored gauze, feathers and then adhered the owl & titles to it. Also, added flowers, die cuts, wood slices & lace around the nest to form a visually pleasing composition. Then did background stamping with black archival ink and for shine, applied Prima’s Metallique waxes to the background. For additional texture & shine, applied Finnabair’s art stones & glass glitter using 3d Matte Gel to some of the areas.  Then, dry brushed some white gesso onto the flowers and created white ink splatter. In the end, distressed the edges of the canvas with black soot distress ink.

Vintage Mixed Media Tags Designed by Preeti Datta using Bob N Betty Decoupage Papers

Hi friends 🙂

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you today?

Bob n Betty will soon be celebrating it’s 3rd Birthday on 28th April, yay!! Everyone at the Bob n Betty family is very thankful for all the love & support bestowed on us. To celebrate, there will be lots of fun events & giveaways. One giveaway is already under way, to check out all the details of the giveaway & for your chance to win superb prizes, please visit the Bob n Betty Facebook page.

Today, I’d like to share two Vintage Mixed Media Tags. I created these using Bob N Betty’s gorgeous Decoupage Papers. These papers have classy designs and there are tons of designs to choose from among many collections. Over here, I used two of the older collections, Glam Craft and Vintage Wheels. These decoupage papers can be used to make different paper craft projects including scrapbooks, cards, tags etc It is really worth looking at all the brilliant inspiration the Design Team at Bob n Betty have come up with in the past.

Process:

Started by cutting one of the vintage design decoupage papers from Bob n Betty’s Vintage Wheels Collection & distressing the edges. Since I was making a pair of tags, I worked on both together, using similar supplies on both but changing the composition a little to create variation. Matted the paper with black cardstock. Did background stamping with archival inks. For the layers, used a few, small bits of papers from the Glam Craft Collection, lace, gauze, buttons, chipboards, paper dolls, flowers, dried hay & stalks, thread & wooden alphabets. Embellished with a few Nuvo drops, Liquid pearl drops & sequins. Then created some white splatter with watered down white gesso. Foam mounted the panels onto white cardstock and threaded some natural twine at the top of the tags. In the end, for shine, added Inka Gold & Prima Waxes in some areas with my fingers.

Floral CAS Cards Designed by Preeti Datta Using Multiple Bob n Betty Collections

Hi friends 🙂

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you today?
I’d like to share 6 CAS or Clean & Simple Styled Floral Cards with you. I have included a few Mixed Media Elements in some of the designs to create additional interest. These were a lot of fun to make & the idea here was to use the gorgeous floral elements from various Bob n Betty Collections & mix and match them to create cards. Usually, we use floral stamps & then color them to make such elements for cards, here, I wanted to fussy cut & use the beautiful, water-colored, floral images in the Bob n Betty Scrapbook Papers.

All the cards are standard A2 sized (4.25 by 5.5 inches). For the first 4 cards, I created fun backgrounds atop watercolor paper die cut panels. To lend these an organic, artsy look, I did “Ink Smooshing” to add shades of green to the background using distress inks & distress oxides. Then, created some ink splatter & did background stamping using shadow grey archival ink. For all the cards, I created layered floral clusters with fussy cut images, torn pieces of pattern paper & thread. Dimension was achieved by adding foam tape under some of the elements. The sentiments were fussy cut from the You n I paper pack & a few die cut sentiments were also used.  In the end, for embellishing all the cards, I used White & Black Nuvo Drops.

Here is a collage of all the cards:

Mixed Media Layout Designed by Preeti Datta, Showcasing the You N I Collection

Hi friends !

Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here, how’s it going? Hope you are having a pleasant day.

Today, I’d like to share a Mixed Media Layout titled XOXO or “Hugs & Kisses”, this is a love themed layout for Valentine’s day. 

I’ve used gorgeous papers from the brilliant new “You N I” Collection by Bob N Betty. This paper pack has a wonderful color palette, water-colored floral images, hot & steamy painted  images of a couple embracing and  tons of coordinating sentiments that can be fussy cut & used as titles, so no need for stamping. It would work great for all kinds of paper crafting projects. Since Valentine’s Day is near, I thought of making a romantic layout 🙂

Here are a few photos of the Mixed Media Layout- XOXO (Hugs & Kisses):

Process:

For this layout, I started with a 12 by 12 heavy weight white cardstock. I chose one of the pretty floral papers with vertical lines from the brilliant You N I collection as my background. I tore the pattern paper and adhered it to a torn heavy weight black cardstock. The torn, deckled edges add interest to a mixed media piece. These were adhered to the white cardstock. Then, I chose the photo and fussy cut coordinating images, sentiments and florals from the You N I pack, these were used for layering. Other elements used to create the layers included, flowers, net, twine, pollens & die cuts. Once all the elements were gathered and ready, I layered them and formed a composition I was happy with. After that I added color with Lindy’s sprays and distress oxide inks, creating the dripping effect. Then to add interest to the background, I did background stamping with black and shadow grey archival inks. For added texture and details, I added Nuvo’s White Crystal Drops and Dress My Craft Little Hearts in clusters, all over the central composition. To add shine & more texture, I mixed Prima’s Art stones mini and regular sized, silver sequins, glitter with Prima’s soft matte gel and applied it to some areas of the layout like near the floral clusters. In the end, I created black and white splatter with inks.
