Create an Autumn Feel with Delicata Layers by Elina Stromberg
A short while ago six new gorgeous colors were introduced to the metallic Delicata ink collection. These rich and creamy pigment inks are wonderful to work with; they can be used with all types of stamps, giving a crisp image on various surfaces.
I used the Delicata inks on a set of simple CAS style cards. Delicata inks come in both lighter and darker colors and the stamped images dry quickly which makes them a perfect choice for different layered stamping projects. Rich Delicata inks work well on darker papers, too. I used two different kraft cardstock, but could as well have chosen dark blue, dark brown or even black backgrounds. Oh, and just look at that gorgeous metallic shimmer! Love it!

Enjoy Coffee Greeting Cards by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou
What better way to give a happy moment to a coffee lover. Make gift card pockets in the shape of a coffee cup and place the cards in. To make the pockets, I cut cardstock in paper cup shapes and using a stripes stencil, Memento and Delicata inks I cover the cuttings. The clear cover is made of a shaker card bubble front cut in less than half and set on the front of the pocket with Tear It! Tape. For the foam, I puffed up some White Amplify! with my heat tool partially placed on a piece of paper and partially on the craft mat. After it was cool I lifted it from the craft mat and glued it on the back of the clear bubble. A clear plastic (acetate) was cut and placed on a back side of the bubble to protect the foamy Amplify! and allow easy placement and removal of the gift card. Decorate the pockets with some corrugated paper (hot coffee protection!) and add tags and some coffee beans.
