Decoupage and stenciling

Hello dearies
This is Nikkita and I am back with another post using craftreat stencils and some decoupage napkins from the store.
Let's get started ,
I have taken two tote bags from my stash and decoupaged them using napkins and mod podge and went ahead and completed them using craftreat stencil and stamps .

Pretty floral tote bag 

Butterflies galore

Quick instructions
I cleaned the base of the tote bag and painted it with sheep skin chalk paint from home decor gave two coats using a flat brush then I applied modpodge and adhered the napkin (top layer) starting from one corner and then slowly covered the whole base and then with the smoothning tool removed the creases and air bubbles (be gentle with the tool or else you will end up tearing the napkin) . 
Let it dry for 6-8 hours or leave it overnight. Apply one coat of mod podge again to seal the napkin .
I did some stenciling using the new polka dot stencil from Craftreat with folk art green color then when the base was completely dry , stamped some butterflies and sentiments randomly using archival inks (these are waterproof and permanent) . 
After 30-mins I applied a generous coat of mod podge and then air dry . 
When completely dry I gave 2-3 coats of clear acrylic varnish spray now the tote bag is ready . 

Materials used

tote bag from stash 

I hope you like my inspirational post on decoupage.
Do leave some love.

One stencil: Four cards

Hello all,

Ria on this side. Today I have made four cards from a single stencil using it differently.

I have used the CrafTreat 2 Step Lattice Flower Stencil, one of my most favourite.
I have used it on a colored cardstock using Distress ink (gathered twigs) and Distress oxide (worn lipstick. I have applied the Gathered twig distress ink twice after moving the first layer slightly to make the following pattern.

I have teamed it up with a die cut in gold foil paper and a flower with few leaves.

I have tried it with different flower.

I have repeated the same pattern with some other inks on a white cardstock. This time with Blue Dye ink and Salty ocean Distress ocean ink.

I have repeated the same technique as I have used int he previous card, adding few Nuvo drops to embellish it.

Supplies used:

I hope you have liked the projects. 

Happy crafting.

Gift Envelope and Cards using Craftreat

Hello all

Today I'm at the Craftreat Blog with an interesting tutorial. I have made a gift envelope and 2 Cards using Craftreat products from the Craft Shop.

I started with the envelope with Craftreat Roses Decoupage Paper. I then decorated the envelope with Nuvo Crystal drops Woodland Green and Carnation Pink using Craftreat Beaded Strings.

Next moving on to the Cards.
First is the regular Heat embossing technique on Parchment paper. Stamped the Versamark ink over the Flourish Circle Stencil design and heat set it with White Embossing powder.  With gold gel pen gave an Outline. Diecut the word Congrats and heat set it with Gold embossing powder. Added it the centre and adhered the design to a Red Cardstock.

For the second Card, I used the same stencil on the parchment paper but used the embossing tools. The result was awesome. I used my Zig markers and coloured the design from behind. Added the sentiment smile in the end.

 Few more closeups.

Hope you enjoyed it. Have a great day!!!😊

Stretching you stencils

Hello all,

Ria on this side. This time I have taken out the old stencils from earlier releases to work with. It took me few days to figure out how to turn them into cards. Without wasting time, here we go:

I have used the CrafTreat Layered Stencil - Leaves and I have used all the images with its layers. I have blended yellow, orange, green, brown colors though each image to get a color of fall. I have kept the background as bold as I could and embellished it minimum with same colored sequins. I didnt play much with the sentiments and kept it simple.

I have made s shaker window card with the same background and tried to make it more feminine unlike the previous one.

For this card I have used CrafTreat Stencil - Waves and applied inks of same genre repeatedly through the stencil to create a pattern. The pattern itself speaks loud, so I added a stamped image and a twine. That's it!

I have repeated the same application through the stencil here but this time, much closer waves.

Supplies Used:


I hope you have liked the projects.

Get these stencils asap as these are great and versatile to use!

Till then, happy crafting.

Treat with Craftreat

Imagine with all your mind for this world is but a canvas for our imagination.
Believe with all your heart even if the path is less trodden.
Achieve with all your might because that's how dreams come true.

Hey all! Today I'm at the Craftreat blog with an interesting tutorial on a wall hanging with Craftreat background.

                    On 3 canvas panels, I pasted Craftreat Decoupage papers Woods collection.

Next attached a wood piece which was again wrapped with the same decoupage paper to the 3 boards. Gave a coat of Clear Gesso because at this juncture I wasn't too sure if I would be using sprays or acrylics.  

Using Craftreat Interrupted lines Stencil and Spiced Marmalade Distress ink added some textures.

Took Papericious Mandala Chipboard and few other corner ones and gave a coat of Papericious Heavy Gesso. 

After it dried, spritzed them with a mix of Papericious Golden Yellow and Red Paparika Spritz
to get a tangy orange colour.

                             I used the scallops which I removed from the Mandala Chipboard.

                                                         Adhered all to the base.

                     I die cut a few leaves and coloured them with Papericious Martian Green. 

Embellished with the Papericious White Handmade Bloom, leaves and other flowers and added a layer of Liquid pearls. Finally added my quote.

Hope you liked the tutorial. 

                                               Here are a few close ups of my work.

 All the materials are available at the one only Craft Shop. Have a great day.
