Mobile Case Tutorial + 1 CAS Card !!

Hi friends ..this is Vijaylaxmi Siyal this side !! Yeah i know i am MIA since long but there are so many reasons for being that..!! Anyways keep this story aside and lets talk craft .. :) I really missed craft this time and believe me its very hard to get back and bring that mojo back ...i struggled a lot this time while creating these projects so pls bear me with my silly creations..!! hope you like them !!

So lets move ahead -

Here is the -- Felt Mobile Case !!

Step 1 : Take Felt Sheets as per your choice of colors... i chose Black , Red & Lemon Green.

Step 2 : Cut the Black outer most sheet using PABD Dual Leaf die.

Step 3 : Now stick the Green felt sheet beneath the die cut black sheet for some pop of colors ..i used Fabric Glue here to stick both sheets.

Step 4 : Now cut some red leaves from the same die and place them in the negative die cut space black felt sheet.

Step 5 : Stick all the leaves with the help of Fabric glue & let them dry completely..You can see the glue in my pics :p

Step 6 : Now take some Red Embroidery thread and stitch both the front & back black felt sheets together. I am not in stitching much so don't know the name of this stitch :p  we are done ...!! Easy right ...?? If you want you can add a button or strap to make it more secure ...i am going to do that soon.

PS - I would like to thank Jasleen for inspiring me with her amazing Felt Creations..!!

Now move on to the next card in which i used Inlaid Die Cutting for the first time ..& really find it so cool !!

Steps - 
1) For this card i distressed a white card stock  with some random colors of DI and then Die Cut them using the October Released Swirled Flourish Die & Thank You die 
2) Then Cut another white CS panel using Rounded stitched Rectangle Die .
3) Then placed the Flourish Die & Thank you Die on this stitched white CS in a pattern and run thru it from the Big Shot.
4) Now comes the tricky but fun part is to arrange all the colored die cut pieces to this white die cut piece. Its just like solving a puzzle ...!! So fit all the pieces in the negative spaces . Placced some matching PABD Enamel Dots here n there for more charm.
5) Tadda ..!! We are done ..its ready ..sweet n simple  !! Quick too :p

Picture Frame Tutorial !!

Hi Friends .. How you all are ?? You all must be doing great !!
Today its my turn to share a tutorial so sharing a picture frame !!
So without any delay here we go --

 Steps on how I made this  -

1) Take a Chipboard Photo frame .(Either Readymade or handmade )
2) Apply white Acrylic paint to cover the frame .
3) Then I Used PABD Bubbles Stencil & Texture Paste to give the frame a nice texture !!
4)  Actually I thought to add color to my texture paste & for some vintage look I added vintage photo DI and applied that brownish texture paste but after doing this I didn't felt good about the outcome & it seems like a blunder so I applied a coat of Gesso over the stenciled area !!
With a coat of Gesso -
5) Then I again distressed it with broken china DI when its looking some better , I started decorating it ..!!
Some More Ink -
6) Decorate it as per your choice. I used PABD Magical Fairies Stamp Set & PABD Love Word Die Cut to decorate my frame along with some Flowers & other embellishments.
7) Hope you like my attempt.
I hope you all are submitting your beautiful entries to our August Color Inspiration Challenge !!
