Top 10 Products For Christmas

christmas-wish-listArtists do not like to be limited by their tools. When discussing which products we thought crafters and artists would get the most use this holiday season, the staff at Imagine decided on highlighting ten products that give you this flexibility. 
It is quite possible we’ve missed your favorite. Let us know what your favorite product is when you are busy making winter projects!

In no particular order:

All-Purpose Ink Mini Workstation – Deck the Halls

Very diverse kit that will give an artist plenty of inspiration. We love this set of inks—Vegas Gold (070), Platinum (071), Red Delicious (092), Heritage Pine (094). The complimentary colors and two metallic inks each stand well on their own, can be blended to create new colors or diluted to produce a watercolor effect.

Use an ink dropper to pull one drop of Vegas Gold and mix onto a color palette one drop of either Red Delicious or Heritage Pine. Stir the ink until it is fully blended. The ink diffuses perfectly creating a well-incorporated shimmer color. Dip the Fantastix into the new mix and color as you would with any marker.

Delicata – All the colors!

These very popular metallic inks dry faster than most metallic inks and come in great colors for the holidays. Our Artists in Residence all agreed- you need all the colors to add a bit (or a lot) of just the right bling to your projects.

Sheer Shimmer Spritz 2-pack – Frost & Sparkle

Great for creating a dazzling effect on paper. These two spritzers will be just the right tone to add some shine to your snowflakes!

Amplify! – White

The airy and light texture of Amplify! could just be the best representation of snow out there. Would also be great as Santa’s beard!

This wee snowman was created with Amplify! in White, his hat was tinted with Delicata in Black Shimmer. The background elements were stamped with VersaMark and Memento in Tuxedo Black.

irRESISTible Pico Embellisher – Clear

Anytime you need a little glassy texture (snowglobes, ice, berries, or windows of a tiny house) this texture application will create a quick and easy glass effect.

Brilliance – Gamma Green

We took a look at all the green inks in our stash, and couldn’t get over this rich and stunning green.

Embossing Powders – Candy Green, Candy Red & Gold

Embossing powders are must-haves in the crafter’s kit. These bright red and green versions will stand out on any project. Don’t forget the VersaMark!

Hand-Cut Monterey Pine 6-piece pack – mitten, tree, and star

Light weight and super cute, these little woodcuts could be used for anything really—small ornaments, garlands, scrapbooking embellishments…the possibilities are endless.

This Monterey Pine ornament was colored with Brilliance in Gamma Green. VersaMarker was used with Candy Red Embossing Powder, while the star was embossed with Gold powder.

Memento DewDrop 4-Pack – Gotta Have

Lady Bug, Cottage Ivy, Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa are all solid holiday colors. It’s the perfect base inks to have for all your Christmas cards.

Fireworks! – Desert Sand

We know—you think we’ve lost our minds! But this gorgeous and subtle gold shimmery craft spray can enhance any project. The beige ink base transforms the gold shimmer into a subdued gold that balances somewhere between a yellow gold and a rose gold. It is not bright like the Dandelion Fireworks! and not colorful like Angel Pink, but is very attractive in its subtlety.


This beauty takes less than 15 minutes to make. Stamped and watercolored using the Gotta Have It Memento set, a simple spritz of Desert Sand Fireworks! makes this simple card really stand out.
