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.

Pictorial:

  1. Cut 2 pattern papers from the Roseate Paper Collection into 4.5 by 6.5 inches in size & then distress their edges with a paper distresser, darken the edges with ink to better define the edges & apply clear gesso on these panels

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

Decoupage Bottle by Tanvi, featuring DecoPatch Papers

Hello crafty souls!

This is Tanvi, back with my love – DECOUPAGE & DECOPATCH PAPERS.

These papers are very thin & blend easily into the background to give a seamless finish. I wanted to use these papers on a curved surface like a bottle. The papers are 50gsm, just perfect for use on such surfaces too. I fussy cut the gorgeous lady (Floral Adornments) & decoupaged her over on the BIRDS & BUTTERFLIES background paper. Do you see how easily she blends over the background!

Jul18001

For some dimension I covered the lady with glossy accents & the glass like look was hard to capture on camera.

Jul18010

I covered the neck of the bottle with crackle paste & once dry rubbed metallique wax paste for a subtle metallic sheen.

Jul18002

Added some dangling resin embellishments too –

Hi friends 🙂

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

There are only a few days left in the month of April and Bob n Betty will soon be celebrating it’s 3rd Birthday on 28th April, yay!! That’s tomorrow!! Everyone at the Bob n Betty family is very thankful to all it’s patrons & supporters. To celebrate, there is an awesome giveaway & a Mega Contest, to check out all the details & for your chance to win superb prizes, please visit the Bob n Betty Facebook page. Don’t miss this awesome opportunity, there is very little time left to participate 🙂

Today, I’d like to share a set of 2 Layered Vintage Cards I made using Bob n Betty’s beautiful new range of Decoupage Specialty Papers- “Meadows” and “Classics”. 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. It really is worth the time.

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.

Altered Cookie Can designed by Tanvi Shah featuring Cottage Blush Paper Collection

Hello, this is Tanvi again with my inspiration for the day.

For my project today the inspiration was the “Cottage Blush” collection so floral & so shabby.

cottage-blush-1140x6591

I worked my way to making a flip album using these gorgeous papers,  half way through & I realized it looked very similar to the wallet mini I made earlier! So while that incomplete project sits on my table an alternative 3D project came to life & am so glad it did! That’s the story of the altered cookie can I share today.

Here are some close ups of the cannister –

Flowers & charms from my stash added much to the shabby look –

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.

Used Bob N Betty’s Brilliant New “You N I” Collection:

Shabby Chic Cards for Valentine’s Day By Preeti Datta

Hi friends !

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

The season of love is almost here and Valentine’s Day is fast approaching so for today’s post, I’d like to share Two Simple Shabby Chic Cards for Valentine’s Day. The aim was to keep the process  simple and use minimal supplies, hence, I did not use any art mediums except a little white gesso (as a lot of people do not have them or do not feel comfortable using Mixed Media Supplies). All I needed were some gorgeous Bob n Betty papers & a few embellishments from my stash.  I also wanted to keep the cards neutral and not overly “romantic” so that they could be used as valentine’s gifts for friends or relatives as well, therefore, I chose the sentiments, “with love” & “you are loved”.

Here is a photo collage of the two cards:

Synopsis of the Process:

Both the cards are 6 by 6 inches in size. I started by cutting the papers and distressing the edges. Layers were created with gauze, flowers, chipboards, torn & deckled pieces of paper, diecuts, twine & lace. The chipboards were not colored to help bring a little contrast and maintain the natural look. The flowers were slightly dry brushed with white gesso. To embellish the cards & keep the subtle look, a few gems and opal white liquid pearls were added.
