Whimsical sequins !

Hello Everyone

I hope you are having a craftily good time !

After having tons of inspirational posts from the DMC DT's on how versatile the use of sequins can be, I would like to take this chance and show you some more creative uses of our lovely sequins.

These sequins are nothing like you have ever seen before, I love love love them for their translucent yet sparkly finish , the beautiful mix of different shapes, the pastel shades, that whimsical feel which makes me use them in everything I create. These come in super cute packaging too, the jars are designed so you don't have to worry about their storage with the added benefit that you can never  even throw away the empty jars ! The sequins mix are very appropriately and intelligently thought about and blended which makes your creations stand out.

I have a few projects that would make you buy them right now and get started :P Here is a glimpse after which follows details on each of these.




Bunting/Banner

Parties with craft decorations are trending nowadays and I too am addicted to creating party décor, with that in mind I came up with this bunting that I created with some pics of my little one. The bunting was made with photo sleeves using the fuse tool  , I added the photographs on some pattern paper , poured in some gorgeousness with the DMC sequins in Golden black and Pink pastel colors. To Complete I added some flowers and ephemera.

This also makes a great decoration for your kid's nursery.








Mobile cover

The moment I saw Pink soda sequins I just thought of unicorns !!! And I had to do this mobile cover with unicorns and the sequins that I fondly call 'the unicorn mix'. Personalizing a mobile cover could be so glamorous and easy with the DMC sequins. I got the images printed and fussy cut , stuck them with mod podge onto the photo sleeves and fused with the fuse tool keeping one end open. After dripping some 'unicorn mix' I closed the open end with fuse tool and just stuck my piece on the back side of cover with E6000.




Pots

Lastly, I have a cute and easy DIY to share. I took some small pots and painted them with chalk paints. Once they dried I applied mod podge on the lower area that I wanted to cover with the sequins. Generously sprinkle sequins to get these pots that can be used for décor or as center pieces for your parties ! I did them in three colors Play with green, Pink pastel and copper sequins.







I hope you liked my creations and would love to see you play with these gorgeous sequins. If you have any queries please drop them in the comments section below and do leave some love.

So here they are !!!!


My first project is a mixed media card .....And this looks wow with White Sunshine Sequins
Blossom with Green Sequins, and Sea Breeze Sequins



Look how bejewelled this card is looking because of the sequins from DMC.
To make this card, I applied gesso on a 7x7 inch chip board and added a few scraps of tissue paper with multi medium gel.
Then, I added some texture using stencils and let it dry. I coloured a chipboard cut out from Wycinanka and coloured it with acrylic shades in blue, teal and sea green.
Spray the card panel with shimmer spray paints green, teal and blue. Let it dry.
Adhere the chip board cut out on the board and start adding the sequins with multi medium matt gel.
Add mulberry flowers .
Apply some Sparkling dust and Frosted sugar powder to add more sparkle to the project.
Add the sentiment.

The second project is a fun project which kids would love to make. These are sequin flowers that can be used anywhere....hair accessories, clutch bag, layouts or any home decor project!!!
Can you guess what I have made?
These are napkin rings made from tissue paper roll.

I cut two 2 inch pieces from the finished roll and cover with a white satin ribbon. Add the sequin flowers and leaves.
Now to make the flowers, take any flower cut out and apply a thick layer of glossy accent. Add the Angel mix sequins and press well. Once this dries, add twine all around to finish this.


Look at the different tones that sparkly flower has !!!!! These can jazz up any table setting !!!

And finally I have the ever popular shaker card that I have made these gorgeous vintage hue sequins .





Look at that copper hue with shining elements !!!! Can you see those black hearts !!! Thats how versatile DMC pre mix sequins can be !!!


This card has all the elements for a golden anniversary or birthday and the sequins go perfectly well to make these cards.

To recap, let me show you some cards that I made earlier. 
This is just a rewind to connect with the DMC sequins.


So that's all for today !!!!! Could I make you stand up and get going for the DMC sequins!!!!
You will adore them and soon they will be a favourite in your stash !!!
So check the store for all the jewels you need in the form of sequins

Glam up your projects - Dress My Craft Sequins

Hello Everyone,

Manu here sharing some fun and creative ways to use sequins in your projects to Jazz and glam them all up!!! I'm super happy and looking forward to all the fun and creativity that will be leashed out by the Dress My Craft first Design Team, which I'm sure you all are looking forward to. The team is focusing on working with the lovely sequins this month and I have a couple of projects to share today.

Sequins is one product that is of interest to each and every crafter, if you love all things blingly, nothing beats using the sequins in your products, if you more into watercoluring, give that extra touch with a couple of sequins, album maker, mixed media, dimensional projects etc etc, sequins does give that extra glamup touch to each and everything!

Sequins are the first product launched by Dress My Craft and these are a must have in your stash for making some ultra jazzy creations. They come in a wide range of colors and each jar has some assorted shapes to look forward to!! Take a peek here: Dress My Craft-Sequins. The sequins comes in cute jars and each jar contains around 25gms of sparkly goodness. The best part: each jar has some super cute shapes to look forward to and these are two-tone sparkly goodness that changes color tones at different angles making them a absolute sparkly affair to work with!!

Here are my projects!!


I have 4 projects to share with you and each one if different for each other.

I will share my most loved one first.

Kids room decor:


I altered a canvas to make a kiddie room decor, so this is a very very jazzy one! The girl is handdrawn first on the canvas with a pencil to mark my points and then have used acrylic paints to color.  I have kept this very very simple and not adding too much of mixed-media touches to this panel as I wanted it to be kids-centric and make it look bright and light.

The sky above the pretty girl is all covered with the Sequins!! Did you see the assorted shaped that comes in each jar. The sequins used here are Pink Pastel and Yellow Sunshine! I absolutely love the flowers in some jars and stars in some! The best thing about this panel, my little one absolutely adored it and declared that it's her on this frame so this has to be her's, which made me happy!


Mermaid theme card:
Another way to add highlight the cards is adding little touches of sequins and this is what I did with this cute Mermaid card made with Mudra stamps! Yes, you heard it right, Crafter's Corner now houses Mudra Craft stamps which is an Made in India brand and one which I'm very very proud off! So grab your share of this newest release from Mudra, only at Crafter's Corner.



The Mermaid is stamped on Dress My Craft Exotica paper and coloured using the Zig Markers, which are waterbased markers, b/w Crafter's Corner stocks up on Zig Markers also now and the best part, they are individually available too. The coloured images are fuzzy cut and arranged on the panel. 


Th sequins completes the look of the whole card. 


Did you notice the star shaped sequins in this Blossom with green jar? An absolute delight to look at!

Shaker Embellishments:


If you have been following my work, you must be aware that I love love love making albums and making shaker embellishments for the cover page of my baby albums is what I totally love to do!! These shaker embellishments are an integral part of making the albums and Dress My Craft sequins are a must have in these.


This cute little girl is from a penny black stamp, coloured with Zig's and fussy cut. I did a vibrant background with distress inks and added a sentiments for before I turned them into cute shakers!

Mixed Media Tag:



I'm not much of a mixed media person but I do try and give it a shot whenever I can. The background here is made with paper teared from an old book to give the tag a little texture. The tag is then distressed with Distress inks and stamped with a script stamp to add added interest! The butterflies are stamped, coloured and then put onto the tag. Add a sentiment and at last I sew around the tag to give it a little rugged look. 



Thank you for checking out my work and I'm also sharing here a baby album which I did with these pretty sequins for you to enjoy!!!

Hello friends,

Kavitha here today.I am super happy and excited to be a part of first ever DCM design team.This month we are focusing on the gorgeous sequins and i made a mixed media layout using them,trust me they make the best toppers for mixed media projects.

The sequins comes in wide variety and colors,each jar consist of beautiful mix of colors and shapes,and the best part is the mix of opaque and transparent sequins.Its super sparkly and reflects light beautifully,which makes it unique.

So lets see my project using the gorgeous Shabby chic sequins and Pink celebration sequins.I made a layout on black cardstock,just to highlight the sequins.The background is made using stencils and metallic paints.I used some chipboard pieces and metallic threads to create the composition. Finally glued down lots of sequins randomly from both the mix using glossy accents.





I hope you can see how sparkly the sequins looks even among all those metallic shimmer goodness,i truly love them.Hope you like my project.

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies used:

A Sequin Love Affair - Dress My Craft

Hello crafty peeps,

I trust you all are doing great :)

Bipasha here to share some creative fun with all the amazing, super strong and talented art enthusiasts. I am sure you all had an amazing time yesterday going through Sampada's extravagant post. It's my turn today to share some craft tips with Dress My Craft's newly launch stunning must haves : Dress My Craft Jewels, Blings .

No one can deny our penchant for sparkle around here and for those of you who already know, I need not stress on how, absolutely gorgeous the sequins by DMC are!

They come in cute reusable jars, around 25g of sparkly magical goodness of assorted different sizes (not just the usual round ones, but much more: stars, triangles, squares etc) in each jar. They are available in different pastel shades. The best part about them is that they give an unique two-tone iridescent effect, changing tone from different angles which makes it a perfect product for adding customised shading effects in your altered arts (yes you hear it right, adding shades with two-toned sequins).

Ready to pin, sew, scatter and stick, sequin embellishments are the perfect finishing touch for any craft project. So, I decided to share three different styles of using these sequins; whether you are a dimensional/mixed media crafter, a card maker, album maker, watercolour & Layout artist/scrapbook, I have got you all covered!

 It's a long image heavy post, so grab your cuppa and enjoy reading!

Funky Alteration (MDF/Fabric/Burlap)

MDF Owl :
I have altered an MDF owl from $2 shop. It was originally in kraft colour, I chalkpainted it in shades of violet and teal, to match my sequin combinations of Sea Breeze & Angel Mix. I separated the sequins of these two colours in 3 sections; light, medium and dark and adhered them in parallel layers to bring the two tone beauty of the sequins in this alteration . I added some funky twist adding some shimmered gears to mimic a crown for my super-stylish owl. I named her "Miss Petula"!

I've adhered all the sequins using dry clear liquid adhesive, you can use a nozzle tip for precise application.

Burlap Bag:
I have been always fascinated with sequin fabrics and dresses so wanted to try using these beauties in fabric. I have stitched a burlap bag and used a linen fabric for its neck and binder and stitched some sequins in circle to add a sparkly twist to it.





Shakers


Shakers are all the rage right now in the world of card making. They can create fun and interactive cards. For my samples, I used Distress Oxide to create a vibrant background, added a sentiment. So grab your sequins and let get shakin' !
Cut the foam tape in half, lengthwise to get thin strips. Then cover all four edges of the white oval bottom cardstock with foam tape. Peel off the backing of the foam tape. Sprinkle some sequins into the middle of the distressed coloured area, then place the acetate on top and cover all the edges with clear glue and a die-cut frame and then add the cute AAllandCreate birdies to the front of the card. Easy!




Canvas Art

Last but not the least if you are just a painter or watercolour artist, I've something in my creative bucket for you too. I created a canvas art with some no-line water colouring technique and ofcourse added some sequins and sentiments to complete the look. It's amazing to see how a little addition of sequins transforms the look of a simple project!




Thankyou for staying with me till the end and to show my appreciation, I am sharing bonus project inspiration for the album makers here. I taught this album "Sweet Chronicles II" for a recent album making workshop and used the beautiful DMC sequins to create the dangler/bookmark and decorate the album cover.
