Thursday Tutorial: 3 Different Effects You Can Use With Your Distress Oxide Inks!

Thursday's Tutorial

Today we are going to show you some techniques and effects you can use with your Distress Oxide Inks, aka Distress Inks, to make three very different styles of card.
Firstly we will show you how to make a crackled type of effect with your inks, followed by a watercolour effect, ending with a blended chalk-like effect! Each has their own unique style and looks stunning in every way!



 

Firstly we will show you the effects you can create using the different techniques regarding the inks...

 

Then we will show you how to combine different elements to create beautiful finished cards!


Combining these different techniques such as using inks or pastes to create backing card stock, adding distress inked embellishments and then a sentiment result in stunning effects!

 

By speckling the finished pieces, you can add that extra little something to make your cards stand out even more!

Now, the moment you've all been waiting for, the video tutorial:


        

We hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and we will have more to come soon! If you'd like any of your work to be showcased on our pages, please get in touch via our Facebook page, Instagram page, or Twitter page.

A very special new resin piece, and some exciting news!

NEW RESIN PIECE!

So today we wanted to showcase a very special new resin we have available, the Noah's Ark resin embellishment!

https://www.facebook.com/theresinshop/photos/a.1854485824819968.1073741828.1850090355259515/1880716842196866/?type=3&theater

We put it on a cartoon sea background to show an example of how it could be used, but as with most embellishments there are an infinite amount of things you can do with them. They can be painted, glittered up, speckled, or even have a magnet attached to the back so you can have your very own unique Noah's Ark fridge magnet!

The detail on this piece is incredible, clearly showing a giraffe, elephant, rhino, bears, cows, sheep amongst other animals, along with Noah standing proudly on the Ark! They could be easily painted to make them stand out more, but even blank they still pack a real visual punch.

You can either buy them via our Facebook page, or the website.

BREAKING NEWS!

Now, you're probably wondering what our exciting news is, right?! Well, we're very pleased to be able to say that we at Craft All Day will very soon be stocking Foamiran, so you can make your own super realistic foam flowers quickly and easily, with astonishing results!

These fantastic foam sheets allow you to create beautiful flower pieces which you can combine or have as standalone items. They are flexible and durable, meaning you can have a lot of fun in making your perfect flower!

We will be stocking white, cream and olive coloured foam sheets at £1.60 and sized at 30x35cm, which we expect will sell out quickly, so act fast on these ones!

Monday: Back to work, back to resin!

It's that dreaded day of the week again; the back to work day, the back to school day, and the general day we all dislike... Monday!

However, we're here to cheer you up with some new fantastic resin pieces we now have available on the website!

 
A beautiful bunch of flowers that you could paint in a variety of colours!

 
A classic corset, perfect for a woman's card!

 
A Hello Kitty figure, complete with body!

 
A Hello Kitty head! (Perfect for kids and big kids alike!)

So as you can see, with our ever expanding range of resins, there is so much you can do to add to your craft projects and give them more depth and content! We personally love these pieces as they allow you to paint them, glitter them up, stick them anywhere, and you could even attach a magnet and have it as a fridge magnet if you wanted!

Feature Friday! - Sizzix - Tim Holtz Alterations - Vintage Typewriter

We have that Friday Feeling here at Craft All Day today! It's a beautifully sunny day, and we're full of inspiration and ideas for craft projects and products!

Today we thought we'd feature one of our favourite items, the Vintage Typewriter Bigz Die!

http://www.craftallday.co.uk/657836-sizzix-tim-holtz-alterations-vintage-typewriter/
A beautiful and intricately made piece, this Bigz die is a classic. This die is designed for use mainly with the BIGkick, Big Shot and or Vagabond machines and requires the use of a pair of Cutting Pads.

It perfectly cuts through even thick materials, including cardstock, chipboard, fabric, foam, magnet, leather, metallic foil, paper and sandpaper.

As men are notoriously difficult to make cards or certain craft projects for, you can create something perfect and beautiful for them with this die! Or if someone is into antiquities, or even typewriters in general like the legend Tom Hanks, then this is even more perfect!

Imagine the things you can create with this die!!!

We'd love to see what you make, so if you want us to see and or share your finished product, we'd be more than happy to do so! So get in touch via the blog, Twitter or Instagram and we'll showcase what you've made with this fantastic product!

After A Short Break - Men's Embellishments!

After a short break away in the sun in Tenerife, we are back with some new items which will excite some of you crafters! Men are notoriously difficult to cater for when it comes to crafting, card making and scrapbooking in particular, so we have picked and made some nautical and clock themed resins that would suit most men we think!

https://www.facebook.com/theresinshop/photos/a.1870021806599703.1073741836.1850090355259515/1870021809933036/?type=3&theater

Available at our Resin Page on Facebook, these beautiful sets can be bought and applied on to any kind of project you'd like. And as with all our other resin items, they can be painted, glittered (if the recipient likes glitter of course!) and stuck to any medium without fear of breaking of them weighing the medium down.

Let us know what you think of them, and keep an eye on the page as more will be coming shortly!

Beautiful resin embellishments!

So, the other day we mentioned the rise in interest in our resin embellishments, and gave you the link to the Facebook page. Today, we are going to give you a little preview of what's available!

This is just a small portion of what we have available, and as we said before we are expanding the range almost every day, and if you keep up with us on Facebook you'll see more and more as we post newer items.

They are surprisingly sturdy and have an incredible amount of detail to them, down to fabric stitiching on the dresses and the scales on the mermaids which in turn have textured scales on themselves! They can also be painted on, have glitter added to them, and can be attached to any kind of background.





So you can see here, the level of detail and the complexity of these casts is just stunning! And as you can do anything you like with them, the potential results are endless! We'd love to see what you make with these resin casts, so please get in touch and we'll showcase some on the blog!
