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.

Rainbow backgrounds with Stencils

Hi Everyone, today I have 4 cards to share here. I made 4 backgrounds with different CrafTreat stencils and Tim Holtz distress inks. I tried to create rainbow backgrounds so I picked these distress inks spiced marmalade, mustard seed, mowed lawn, seedless preserve, salty ocean, fired brick


For the first card, I used CrafTreat Ikat Chevron stencil. After inking splattered a few drops of water in the background.



Fourth card I used CrafTreat Warli stencil

For all the cards I die cut and stamped the sentiment. To complete the cards I added a few Clear sequins.

Hope you got inspired to use these stencils. Happy Crafting!!

Trinket Box with Decoupage Papers and Stencils

Hey all

Today I'm at the Craftreat Blog with a decoupage tutorial on an MDF box.

First i primed the surface with white gesso and gave a thick coat of chalk paint.

After the paint dried, i applied Plaid Folkart Multisurface paint Look at me blue around the edges and bottom of the box and let it dry.


I then cut out a butterfly from the Craftreat Decoupage paper and stuck on the lid with Mod podge.

Finally i did the stenciling on the box with the same blue colour and Craftreat Beaded String stencil.
