It’s time for the 19th Prakarya Kertas papercraft challenge! It’s a monthly online challenge for Indonesian paper crafters in multiply held by Dian Yustisia. This time the challenge is tough. Using these colors; orange, black, dark green, purple, which are basically halloween colors for a wedding themed papercraft! I was thinking to incorporate the corpse bride or something Halloween-y so that I have the legitimate reason to use these colors.

Then, I incorporate just the purple and the orange (and a little bit of black) to make a non-traditional wedding card and gift tags! And wow that was fun. My experiment proves that these colors doesn’t always have to be about Halloween.

Supplies : 12×12 Go For Baroque (imaginisce), 6×6 Wisteria (Basic Grey), 6×6 Ambrosia (Basic Grey), Kodomo no Kao Rakuraku Koubou Flower Punch (in 4L and 3L), Carla Craft paper punch, Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade & Dusty Concord), Haunted Ribbon from Cosmo Cricket.

I did some craft goodies shopping the other night, and I couldn’t help but experiment (read: play with these things all night long) on using and mixing them. Pentel Color Brush in purple (#150), Artnic pigment stamp pad in Peony (16), Carla Craft small circle punch, purple glitter, perfect pearls (Berry Twist and Forever Violet) and some butterfly stamps.

I fell in love with butterfly stamps since I saw how beautiful they are in Rachel Jackson’s blog. And I remember that she made a cute sketch on August, and even though it’s almost October now, I decided to make something using the sketch. And here it is :

I also copied her style in making those little dots with a white gel pen.

I just can not let my perfect pearls alone that I had to apply them somewhere in my craft. Here’s some shiny details :

For the card, I also used Alphabet Stamps, Milled Lavender Distress Ink and Artnic stamp pad in Ash Rose. Anyways, it was fun!

Kanzashi Inspired Card

This card is inspired by Kanzashi, a Japanese ornamental hairpin. I love it, I thought it’s very unique, I was obsessed to learn how to make them but apparently it’s too complicated for me, so I recreate the shape for a card! I use Japanese pattern paper called “Washi” to strengthen the oriental image of the card. I use flower shaped paper punch to make the shape, and put some gems in the center as an accent.

3D Flower with Punches

Today I’m going to show you how to make a 3D Flower with flower punches. First, you need a flower punch. I’m using one from CarlaCraft, the flower has 8 long petals with diameter 2.6 cm. I punched 12 flowers using a color photocopy paper. Any paper will do, as long as it’s not too thick. I fold each flower into two, and I did it asymmetrically so it shows all of the petas. Glue 6 of the same folded piece into a round piece of paper. I put more on top of them, and for the last ones, I fold the pieces again into two, and place them on the top. And there is the 3D flower! I joined some of these flowers together and put it as an embellishment for my card. And you don’t have to worry about the flowers or the bulkiness of the card, because when you put the card into an envelope, the flowers will go flat and wouldn’t be ruined. Happy punching!
