A Bird House altered by Ashmita Roy, feat. Roseate paper collection

The Roseate collection is so amazing, the color combinations and the prints and all the elements are just gorgeous.
I wanted to do something very fun and shabby chic with it so I chose to alter a birdhouse.
This is what it looked like before I altered it.

I didn’t opt to paint over it as the papers are very nice and thick and don’t need any surface preparation. I did clean it thoroughly with a wet cloth and dried it. I also got rid of the base in the front it was sort of not working out with the look I wanted.
I cut the papers down to size to fit the walls and the roof and decoupage them using mod podge. I also used some distress ink in walnut stain to add a finishing to the edges.


There are so many elements for fussy cutting that I didn’t need a lot of extra elements. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves abs make arrangements. Adding them using silicone glue in order to create some dimension.

A Handmade Calendar by Sampada Srivastava, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hi everyone..

This is Sampada with probably my last post for this year and to give a kick start to the coming year and to help get you guys fully prepared to take on 2019, I have this beautiful and very handy calendar which is made using Roseate Collection.

So to mention again, Roseate has 12 overwhelmingly amazing papers with little shabby yet floral designs and also you get motif sheet and lots of fussy cutting elements in the paper pack. Every time I use this collection, I get so carried away and end up using lots of fussy cut elements in this calendar as well. Trust me…each element is so beautiful in itself that it’s very hard to make choices.

So coming on to my project, this is a wall hanging calendar which has two sections, the first one is embellished with flowers adding to it some fussy cut elements frames etc giving it 3d look and the second part is having the months’ sheet on it.

Surely many of us use electronic calendars these days in our phones and find it very convenient with the click of few keys. But nothing beats the beauty of a handmade calendar. You can hang it in your craft room, gift it to your friends and family and I am sure they are going to love it…A perfect gift for this New Year.

I have made two sections in this wall hanging calendar but you can add one more as per your convenience and you can put pictures on that and change it with every passing month.

Now to make it handier I have made the month sheet magnetic and it is up to you how you want to store it. You can watch the video of how to change the months and how you can overlap all the months together and change each passing month sheet with the next coming month.

I would love to hear from you all and signing off by wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!!

So, go on and try this beautiful collection and show your creativity. You can share your creative projects on Bob n Betty Buddies page on facebook.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs

Explosion Box Card by Niharika Gupta, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hi everyone,

I am back here today with my newest creation and probably the last post of this year. This place is totally filled with inspirations. You must have observed that in my last few projects. And here is one more inspired from the surroundings here.
Its winter, and not a only a season, its a celebration! People light up their houses, decorate it for Christmas, with snow on the roofs, and on the little plants, sides of the road, lights make everything feel so warm! It seems to be a different magical world all together.
This Explosion Box Card made with the very beautiful Roseate collection, seems to capture the beauty completely. I tried to emblematise a house on a cold winter evening here, all set up for celebrations.
Cutting the smallest flowers and leaves from the paper pack was so much fun!
Don’t forget to catch up on the small video in the end to see the beauty of the flickering light in the house. It can be turned on or off from the outside of the box card.
Just loved making it.  Its for someone here to save her Christmas memories… Awww, I am waiting to know from her how she likes it. Till then, i would love to hear from you how you liked it. Have a great winter and an amazing holiday season! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Love, Niharika.

A Lampshade decoupaged by Niharika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch Papers

Hi friends,

It has been a long time since I came here with a post. A break somehow turned into in lengthy absence. And now that I have started to bring my focus back, I will come up with some interesting posts in the coming days.

Well, I feel you can never go wrong when you think about designing something for your own home. To give a quick recharge to my energy, I tried to experiment on something I had never tried before – Decoupage. I always struggle to think on something which is not a “Scrapbook”, but trying hands on this amazing  paper from Bob n Betty was super fun. I had this plain white Lampshade at home and I used the beautiful floral arrangements from the Roseate Decopatch collection.

These papers give an amazingly smooth finish without much effort. I really liked the outcome and now this little thing brightens my room in the most elegant way.

Much thanks for stopping by.

Love, Niharika.

Mixed Media Layout by Tanya Cloete, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hello dear Bob n Betty friends.

Here are the instructions you may use to recreate such a project
1. Add some colour to the background on one of the sheets in the Roseate Collection using some white gesso and Impasto paints.
2. Add texture randomly using a stencil and white crackle texture paste.
3. Add paint splatters randomly over the page.
4. Cut a few die cut shapes from the collection sheets and decoupage papers to form the layering of the composition.
5. Emboss the chipboard pieces with embossing powders.
6. Fussy cut a few elements from the collection sheets.
7. Arrange the rest of the embellishments as per the picture or as you like.
8. Add some buttons and sequins for the finishing touch.
9. All done!

Decoupaged Box by Deepal Shah, feat. Roseate DecoPatch Papers

Hello Crafty peeps,
Deepal here and today I am sharing with you the keepsake box which I made with Roseatte decopatch papers by Bob n Betty. These are totally my favourite papers to work with.
I started tearing with hand, the required design from these Roseatte decopatch papers. Then I decoupaged the torn design on already gessoed MDF box.
Next, I started building up colours on the box. I generally prefer to use the shades of colours from the papers used for the project. So in this project I have used hues of pink, green, cream, white and blended them to give desired effects followed by stencilling.
Once dried, I splattered some darker shades of the same hues of colours used with toothbrush in some areas. Lastly I added few embellishments. Sentiments were taken from Roseatte decoupage double sided scrapbook paper pack.
Totally loved the outcome of this vintage keepsake box and hope you all will like it too. I shall catch up with you all soon with my next creation, till then Happy Crafting…
Best regards,
Deepal Shah

Decoupaged Cultlery Holder by Ruchika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch papers

Hello once again my crafty friends,

This is Ruchika from Caterpillar Designs with a new project that I am happy to showcase today. This time I decided to work on a cutlery stand using fuzzy cut elements from the ROSEATE – DECOPATCH papers by Bob n Betty.

When I started, I did not have a fixed image in my mind as to how the project would turn out. Instead I just let myself experiment with different textures and paints to see how the final outcome would be. And I must say I was quite happy with the end result.

Process:

  1. The first step is to choose the elements you would like to work with.
  2. Sand the cutlery holder well to make it smooth.
  3. The entire holder is then painted dark brown.
  4.  Use 2 step crackle medium on top of the brown. You can use One Step Crackle Medium as well if you like.
  5. Once dried, paint the outside portions of the holder with white, off-white  or beige color chalk paint as per requirement depending upon what type of look you want.
  6. To give it a shabby distressed look, sand the holder lightly until you get the desired look. Dry brush the edges and a give some strokes on the holder with dark brown or black paint so as to give a distressed look.
  7. Paste the fuzzy cut elements on to the holder at the desired areas.
  8. Use modpoge to seal the paper elements.
  9. With the help of paints and a thin paint brush give some shadow effects to the elements and area’s around them so that they blend into the background beautifully.
  10. Once you are happy with the desired result, varnish your product with any water-based varnish.

This holder can be used at the dining table as a cutlery holder or you can use it to store pens and other stationary items. No matter what or where you decide to use it, it will always look amazing and be functional.

I had fun using these fuzzy cut images and creating a unique background with crackle effect and distressed look. Do try them and don’t forget to share your work.

Happy Crafting.

Love
Ruchika

Mini Album by Niharika Gupta, featuring the project made during FB live class

Hello Everyone,

Finally bringing the long awaited pictures of the complete album I made during the Facebook Live Class.
I didn’t add many things offline, just a bit here and there, which i will try to explain here and also i will try to mention the product names of a few things which I used and most people wanted to know their proper names.
Firstly, the adhesive that I used is the runner tape from Scrapbook Adhesives. It comes in variety, you can choose the type of adhesive you like (available at Crafters Corner)
The Embossing ball tool i used is from Dress my craft, medium size (available at Crafters Corner)
The Album is Kraft Memory Hardware Gatefold Journal from Prima Marketing, size 6.5″ X 6.25″
The Lock that I have used is Photo Frame Tied metal hook on the left flap (available at Madras Bazaar) with Tim Holtz clasp on right.
The Window is Memory Hardware Wood Shutters from Prima Marketing again.
Chipboard cutouts that I ended up using were from Scrapiniec and Dusty Attic sentiment chipboards.
I hope i have mentioned about the products most people were inquisitive to know. If still you have some doubt, or any question, please feel free to drop in a message in my inbox.
So the first thing i did after the class was to add my closure lock to the album. You can see how I attached the two pieces with a big bronze round brad in the pictures below. I liked the idea of my wooden window peeing from the center, so i didn’t mind the gap there and let the cover fall a little open at the middle. Added a few charms to the lock chain too.
Secondly, I added few more embellishments near the wooden window with a few splatters of white Gesso and gray chalk paint using my brush.
I ended up adding some splatters to the inside pages as well.
On the spine of the album, i added my favorite jute ribbon, it gives a wonderful texture to the spine.
—————–
I hope you enjoyed going through the pictures. Do drop in your comments to tell me what would you like to learn in the next live class with me.
Have an amazing, creative, and colorful week.
Love, Niharika.

MDF Set of Drawers – Decoupaged by Deepal Shah, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hello creative friends,

Deepal Shah here and am really excited to share my debut post as design team member for Bob n Betty. I am really honored and proud to be associated with this brand.

Today I am sharing with you all, the project I made with beautiful Bob n Betty Decoupage specialty paper collection Roseate.

First I sanded the two-drawer box well and applied gesso all over it. On the top base of the box I painted with acrylic colors so as to match with the background of the papers to be used on drawers and sides. Here I have used only one paper from the set.

Then I have pasted the paper cuts on front and sides with decoupage glue, carefully pressing and removing bubbles. Once it was dried I again applied decoupage glue on top of papers and let it dry. Once dried I applied Decoupage Varnish on the whole box.. even on the painted areas.

Lastly I added lace and miniatures on top of the box according to theme. This drawer box is multipurpose, can be used for storing keys, jewelry or precious mementos.

I had fun creating with these papers which already have too many elements added in one single paper making things easier for beginners also. Do try them and share your projects with us.

Happy crafting!!!
