Guest Designer - Zalak Mandal

Hello Crafters,

I am one of your crafty fellow Zalak A Mandal, I blog at When Vidushi Saraf shoot me an email about guest designing, without a second thought I immediately replied her and I am really happy to guest designing here at Peek-a-Boo designs. I would like to thank Vidushi Saraf and the current design team memebers to give me this opportunity.

I also want to thank to all DT memebers for inspiration and great projects. And Hope to see new creations from new DT memebers.

So now lets head over to my projects I created using my Guest Designing Kit. It was really surprised moment when I received this stamp and Stencil.

Wow...... I really love this stamps and Stencil, don't you? Let me tell you this stamp and Stencil are made in India. So crispy and detail images, can absorb ink very smoothly. And clears all your ink from stamps using baby wipes.

So I have made 4 CAS cards and 1 layout (my first try). Here is what I made using this. 

This is my first card using Back to School stamp set. I did smooshing technique here, using Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry and Craved Pumpkin distrees ink. I colored winner cup with zig brush marker. To finish my card I embellish with sequin and twine.

This is my second card using same stamp set. I blend peacock feathers,  salty ocean, dusty concord and seedless preserve. Then I stamp owl, books and rule on watercolor paper and then colored it with zig brush marker. For stars I stamed with versamark ink and heat Embossed with white embossing powder. Last for sun I blend mustered seeds and Craved Pumpkin then applied glossy accents and sprinkled some diamond dust. ( I hope you can see effect in pictures) 

This is my third CAS card using Splitter Spatter stamp. I stamped umbrella which has heart images using picked raspberry then from that stamp only there is cute little hearts so I stamped them randomly using spun sugar and picked raspberry. I also stamped sentiment inside card and heat Embossed with gold embossing powder. 

This is my last, 4th card using same stamp set. I again stamp umbrella and colored it with zig brush marker and applied Glossy Accents over it and sprinkle diamond dust and randomly arrange it and embellish it with sequins.

This is my first Layout that I made using two stamp and Stencil. And tried to give Back to School theme. Used distress ink, heat Emboss, fuzzy cut stamped images, some of sentiment from my recollections papers(which is already heat emboss, you just need to color).

I hope you all like my projects. Thanks for stopping by. 

Happy Crafting

Teacher's day project tutorial

Hello and good afternoon dear friends! ^__^

I'm Halak and a tad under the weather today, but I hope you are having a beautiful friday!

Today we'll be going through a tutorial that's fun + easy to make using the beautiful stamp set titled - Back To School

Note : This project is made as per the ongoing Peek-a-boo Designs (PABD) Challenge #7 guidelines so if you haven't participated yet, grab the old supplies from your stash along with something new you recently purchased, create a project and link up!
To participate, click >> HERE

PABD product list :

Let's begin the picture tutorial :

First I created a sentiment using the Back To School and Awesomeness stamp set.

Also stamped the ruler image.

Then, stamped the crayon stamp a few times.

Colored the crayons in different colors using paint and Sakura gelly roll pens.

I wanted the teacher's day sentiment with a couple of other elements from the set so once the crayons dried I finished off the remaining stamping.

Tip : Here I didn't bother masking the crayons (red and green) because I had decided that for this project, the ruler was going to be paper-pieced. If I would have selected coloring the ruler then I would have masked the crayons.

Using distress inks with a round blending tool, I applied ink lightly using the Arrows stencil.

Tip : To get a smooth look while stenciling without those irritating harsh lines, use a round blending tool. 

Next I took a piece of patterned paper and stamped the ruler on it because I wanted to paper-piece that element.

Did you know : PABD has gorgeous Acrylic Blocks with laser etched grid lines for ease of stamping.

Paper-pieced the ruler, matted project onto red card base and added a few star shaped stickers.

Lastly, to finish it off added a few bits of washi and paper tape.

Tip : If you don't want to add bulk to your project and want to maintain the clean and simple (CAS) look, then washi tapes are a great embellishment option!

And that's how I did it! I know it's a bit early for Teacher's Day but if you plan to make cards in bulk, now is a good time to start and this stamp set is absolutely perfect for it! ^__^

Thank you for stopping by! *Hugs*
