Dining Set With Craftreat Stencil

Christmas is all about family, friends, food and gifts. How about combining all of it with an artistic touch.....😉

I'm at the Craftreat Blog with a tutorial on Dining sets.

An easy to make set of 4 coasters, 4 dining mats and a cutlery stand.... all with one stencil and 2 colours. Unbelievable right... Let's get started.

I used a combo of Vivo Decor Precious Metal Color Cinnamon and Turquoise along with Craftreat Marble stencil. These colours are so dense and versatile, the metallic sheen is just awesome. And you know... what it hardly takes time. All the the articles were ready in a jiffy.

15 minutes...that was all the time I gave myself and as it turns out, that's all the time I needed.
Off late I have been testing products not only for their versatility  but also for the time it takes to complete a design. And the  Craftreat stencil only goes to stand by my speculation.

If you liked the design as much as I do then please do check out the CraftShop for more cool products.

Craftreat shaker cards and stencils

Hello all,

Ria on this side. I am back on this blog after a long time. Recently, I have bought a lot of alcohol inks from the Craftshop and I must admit that I have gone mad over this!!! Such a fun experiment to do all the time.

Here is the link of the alcohol inks.

Now, moving onto how I turned them to bright and colorful cards using 3D shaker chipboards.


  • Firstly, I have made the background with Yupo paper and alcohol inks.
  • Then, I embossed the top most layer of the CrafTreat 3D Shaker Chipboards - Diamond and glued all the pieces.
  • I have used Papercious Sequin mix.
  • I have completed the card with a sentiment, die cuts and crystal drops.



Here, I have used the same method but this time, I have used a vellum and used CrafTreat 3D Shaker Chipboards - Cake


I have used the CrafTreat Layered Stencil - Cup Cake and blended distress oxide inks through it. I have added shades of colors on my own. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft Let's Celebrate. 


I simply loved this stencil and it actually gives the scope for adding details on your own.
I have blended distress inks through CrafTreat Layered Stencil - Sun Flower and added colored details with Zig clean color real brushes. The sentiment is from Mudra Clear Stamps - Thanks.

I hope you have liked the projects.

Happy Crafting!!!

New Me - Canvas with CrafTreat Background

Hi everyone

Today I'm at the Craftreat Blog with a mixed media canvas tutorial with Craftreat background.

"It's not who you are underneath,
It's what you do that defines you".
One of my favourite quotes from the Batman Trilogy...

When I stumbled upon this quote, I had this instant urge to do something in mixed media concept.

I generally love doing journal spreads with mixed media concept. I like to venture out of my comfort zone and try something new. A few mix and matches with different mediums..... can totally bring out something cool. Tada..... here's what i came up with.😁

So here's what I did.

I first took a canvas board and pasted the craftreat wood decoupage paper with mod podge. The Wood decoupage paper actually looks like a 3D textured paper with a grungy look. So I decided I will not alter this much. Next using the craftreat stencil flourish with gold crackle, added a little texture to the background. Using craftreat stencil lace and aged mahogany distress ink, I added another layer of interest.

While the background was being set, I drew an abstract face of a lady and outlined it with 3D outliner black. After it dried, I coloured it with acrylic paints, and cut it out along the outline.

I then adhered it to the board and added my quote.
