Desktop Calendar With Helmar Scrap Dots

Hello Everyone,
Today I have tried to make a desktop calendars tutorial. I have used Helmar Scrapdots. This glue is fantastic to work with and they are quick to dry too. They do give you ample time to play around and get the things at right place.
I have tried to create a video tutorial for easier understanding. I may not be great at making videos (its like teething problem) but I have tried my best to explain myself on how I created this Desktop calendar.

The one which I created last year is below.

I hope to see a lot of different versions from you all . Hope I have inspired you all to create something for your loved ones this year.

Hope you all like it.

Please do leave me a comment for boosting my morale.

Wow! It changes and Altenew Card

Hello All,

I am here again with another Card I created with Altenew stamps, dies and Wow! Changers embossing powder.

When I saw these wow embossing powder , I was so fascinated to use them. So here is a card that I made. 

Here is a step by step tutorial for you to try it yourself too.

Materials Needed for this card:
  • Neenah Solar white
  • Altenew Black permanent ink
  • Altenew Cheerful Meadows paper pack
  • Altenew Flowering Cistus Stamp set and Coordinating dies
  • Altenew Greenfield Inks
  • Altens Lapis Ink pads
  • Altenew Warm Sunshine ink pad
  • Altenew Expresso Ink Pad
  • Wow! It changes Embossing powder
  • Wow Embossing powder Blue . 
  • Altenew Colour Wheel Die
  • Altenew Golden Spray
  • Wow embossing powder red glitz
  • Versamark embossing ink pad

Steps for background:
  • First I die cut out a colour wheel and  will make it work as a stencil.
  • Then I mixed Wow sheen from wow Changers with a wow red glitz embossing powder in a separate container.
  • Then I took my die cut and placed over the neenah solar white and gently dabbed over it with versamark ink pad so that I can sprinkle my mixed red glitz and sheen over it.
  • Then heat embossed.

Steps for Flowers and Leaves:
  • For my Flowers I used the ink pad Lapzis. Since its a 3 layer flower so for my lighter flowers I took the lightest to the 2 generation ink pad * and for darker I started from 2nd light and 3rd ink pad*.
  •  *  when I was doing last layer instead of using my ink pad I used versamark embossing ink and a mixed embossing powder ( which is now mixe of Wow Blue embossing powder with Wow Changer Glisten)
  • For my leaves I have just used and layered them with Green field Ink pads.

For my final touches before arranging my cards I splattered some Gold spray from Altenew and stamped my Thank you sentiment at last.

Hope you all liked it.
