Hi there friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a fun Turnabout Stamping Project anyone can do. This is for all levels. With this stamp set you will start with a single piece of cardstock cut to 6″ x 6″ set up your stamp, ink up the full stamp in one color, turn your paper 1 turn to the right or left, and then ink in 2nd color, turn 1 turn again same direction as before and ink in next color, then one final turn in same direction, ink up again. Once dry cut panel to 4″ x 5.25″, apply to a card base that is 4.25 x 5.5″, I prefer top folding for this. Add your sentiment, some jewels and your project is complete.
Hello Friends! Katy here and today I am excited to share this really cool background technique.
In today’s video tutorial I am sharing how I use a 3D embossing folder and iridescent opaque Mboss embossing powder to create a wedding or anniversary card. The colors I chose definitely give me a beachy vibe and I am loving it!
Good morning! Kathy here, creating art for Imagine Crafts! Today I have a new tutorial for you. Today’s project is an Easter card but it is also about creating your own backgrounds with Imagine Craft’s Ultimate Pigment Ink Refills! If you don’t have much patterned paper this is an easy background using the refills and baby wipes!
Skill Level: Easy
Time to complete: 1 hour
Cut a piece of a layering weight, white card stock to 4.25” x 5.5”. This will be enough for three holders. Grab your favorite ink refills. For today’s card I used Imagine Craft’s Ultimate Pigment Ink Refills in Canary and Pink. Grab a baby wipe and fold it up nicely.
Dab your ink onto the baby wipe in an alternating order.
Now just swipe across your card stock. YES you will get messy! But it’s fun. You may need to add some more drops. Make sure when swiping that you line up your baby wipe with the last swiped color as you move along.
Time to get messy again! We will spray Sheer Shimmer Spray in Gold all over the panel. I use an old box and lay the panel inside. This contains the spray a bit. The sparkle of these sprays is so pretty and available in so many colors!
I also unscrewed the top of the Shimmer Spray and splattered some random spots. I splattered some small spots using metallic watercolor paint.
Next, I cut some scalloped frames and glued them together with On Point Glue. I used a coordinating pink card stock. Trim the background panel to fit behind the frame and adhere with On Point Glue from Imagine Crafts.
I die-cut some an Easter Egg I had in my stash several times. I used the scalloped frame to die-cut the edges so they would fit perfectly against the frame. I also cut an additional egg to use as the main focal point.
I traced the actual die and cut a solid egg out. I adhered this behind the main egg and adhered with glue. I took the insides of the die cut and just painted some of the pink and yellow refill ink on alternating stripes I also added 2 gold stripes from a metallic card stock.
I stamped, colored and die-cut a cute bunny. I used alcohol markers but any coloring medium will work. I stamped the Easter sentiment on the same pink card stock. I used VersaMark Ink, covered with gold embossing powder and heated. The sentiment, main egg and bunny are popped up with foam tape. The entire panel is added to a horizontal folded A2 card base with foam tape as well. The last thing I did was add a few confetti sequins!
I hope you enjoy this card and the tutorial. Thanks for stopping by I appreciate all of you! Please head over to the Imagine Crafts website to see all the beautiful products. Here is the link IMAGINE CRAFTS.
– Greetings! It’s Kathi here. In today’s tutorial, I am going to show you how to create a shimmery Thank You card using multiple Brilliance Ink colors.
Skill: Beginner to Intermediate
Time: 1.5 hours
Cut a piece of Mixed Media paper to 4” x 5.25”. Using a Sponge Dauber, apply Sky Blue Pearlescent Brilliance Ink to half of the panel. Use another Sponge Dauber to apply Orchid Pearlescent Brilliance ink to the other side. Blend the two colors of ink in the center.
Repeat this step with a second piece of paper. Set this piece aside to be used later.
Spray Isopropyl Alcohol onto ink blended paper panel and let sit for a minute. The alcohol will lighten, blend, and add white speckles to the paper. Heat set.
Use Removable Scotch Tape to tape the background panel to the back of the Mosaic Stencil, then use an Ink Sweeper to apply Moonlight White Brilliance ink over the stencil onto panel.
Remove the tape and the stencil. Heat set.
Use three flower dies from the Wildflowers 1 Thinlits Die Set to cut Mixed Media Paper.
Use Sponge Daubers to apply Pearlescent Purple, Pearlescent Ice Blue, and Pearlescent Lavender to the flowers. Use Fantastix Brush applicators to detail the flowers with Mediterranean Blue Brilliance, Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance, Grape Jelly Memento inks. Color the flower stems and leaves with Pearlescent Thyme Brilliance and Cottage Ivy Memento inks.
Use the Belly Band and “thanks” dies to cut the extra panel of paper created in Step 1.
Adhere the flower die-cuts to the stenciled panel. Adhere the Belly Band die-cut over the flower stems. Adhere the “thanks” die-cut to the center ornament of the Belly Band.
Cut a piece of white cardstock in half. Score and fold to form an A2 card. Put a piece of scrap paper inside the card, then use a Sponge Dauber to apply Purple Brilliance ink around the edges of the front of the card. Heat set.
Step 10: Use Tear It! Tape to adhere the image panel to the card.
Hello Friends! Katy here and today I am sharing how I used Memento Dew Drop Inks to create a dimensional Spring bouquet.
In todays video tutorial I am sharing how I use the perfectly pointed end of the Memento Dew Drop Inks to layer ink colors on a silhouette stamp. I then die cut them out and create a vellum wrap to go around my bouquet. In the video I also follow up on the Press n Seal barrier that I added to my StazOn Pigment ink pad to see if it keeps it from drying out. It has been about three months since I added the barrier, watch the video below to see if it worked.
