– Hello! It’s Alison Heikkila. Today we’re going to play with some Fireworks! Sprays on an emboss resist background. It’s a great masculine card, but I prefer to call it non-gendered. By changing up the background stamp and/or the colors, you can make this card as unique as the person you’re giving it to.
Greetings! It’s Kathi here to show you how to create fairy card with a magical shimmer using Memento Inks and Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spray.

Last time we met we created a bunch of backgrounds together, using a few different inky mediums and a gel plate, along with some other supplies. This time we are going to turn one of those inky backgrounds into a lovely card. For the sake of time, we are only making one on screen, but I have 3 BONUS shaker cards to show you as well, so stick to the end!

Hello Friends! Katy here and today I am sharing a super quick technique using VersaFine Clair.
In todays video tutorial I am sharing how I use VersaFine Clair in the color Chianti and some cream card stock with a 3D Embossing folder to create a quick, but elegant card. In the video I also share cleaning up the embossing folder so you have minimal to no staining. All this in just over 3 minutes! Check it out below.
