Create Beautiful Florals with Memento Markers

By Alison Heikkila

Hello! Today I’m going to show you how you can use Memento Markers to create beautiful florals. They look like they’ve been watercolored but you really just have used silhouette stamps.

 

Skill Level: Basic to Intermediate

Time: 30-45 Minutes

 

Directions:

Step 1

Apply your first silhouette stamp to an acrylic block or stamping tool. For all of these images, I thought using a block was easier.

 

Step 2

Color in the silhouette stamp using Memento Markers. I went with 2 shades of green for the foliage, and two colors on each flower. I recommend applying the lighter color first, and then the darker one. Be sure to overlap the colors to blend them together.

 

Step 3

Stamp the colored image onto white cardstock. If you take a while coloring in your image, you may want to “huff” or breathe on to the stamp before applying it. This helps to remoisten the inks.

 

Step 4

Try to change up the strokes you use when coloring the images, especially if you have florals with different textures like I do. Some I kept super streaky to resemble petals, some have a much smoother blend. Don’t be afraid to add extra detail with the Memento Markers after you’ve stamped the images. I did this, for example, on the mason jar.

 

Step 5

Stamp all of your images out, keeping them spaced apart a bit for die-cutting.

 

Step 6

Die-cut all of your elements. I adhered multiple images to my cutting plate at once to save time. I taped them down with a low-tack tape to make sure they wouldn’t move.

 

Step 7

When all of your images are cut out, arrange them in different ways until you like how they look. Snap a photo of the arrangement so that when you go to glue them, you can put them back where you like them. If you have Press ‘N Seal, you can apply that to the top of the images to temporarily hold them in place while you apply On Point Glue to the parts that are “in” the mason jar.

 

Step 8

Take a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ white cardstock and run it through your die-cut machine with an embossing folder.

 

Step 9

Lightly apply Pixie Dust VersaMagic to the raised design of the cardstock.

 

Step 10

Adhere foam dots or foam tape to the back of the mason jar and flowers.

 

Step 11

Stamp the sentiment near the mason jar.

 

Step 12

Adhere the panel to a white card base.

 

I love the completed card. Using Memento Markers directly on stamps gives a very different look than when using ink pads. What kind of silhouette stamps do you have in your stash? Flowers like these? Animals? Geometric shapes? You can use any of them with this technique! Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Learn How to Make a Multi-Colored Easter Card

 

By Neva Cole 

In today’s crafting tutorial, I will show you how to use a single stamp image and stamp each line with a different ink color. I will also share how to blend VersaMagic inks for a background and take it up a notch by dry embossing.  

 

Skill: Intermediate

Time: 1 hour

 

Directions:

Step 1

Place image on stamp positioner and use a post-it to cover the bottom three lines of the image.  I used a sentiment stamp from Unity Stamp Co. titled “Everything Easter” with four lines of text.  Use a paper piercer to tuck the post-it securely in place. Ink the top line with VersaMagic in Aloe Vera.  Remove post-it and stamp image on cardstock. Clean ink off of the post-it so you can use it for subsequent steps.  Clean image after stamping and moving to Step 2. Repeat this after each step through Step 4.

 

Step 2

Use two post-its to cover lines 1,3 and 4 and ink image with VersaMagic in Spring Pansy. 

 

Step 3

Use two post-its to cover lines 1,2, and 4 and ink image in VersaMagic Sea Breeze.

 

Step 4

Use a post-it to cover lines 1,2, and 3 and ink image in VersaMagic in Spring Pansy.

 

Step 5

Clean the entire image and ink in VersaMark and stamp image over the colored lines.  Heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder.

 

Step 6

Using ink blushers ink a section of 4″ x 5.25″ cardstock in VersaMagic Aloe Vera, Spring Pansy, and Sea Breeze and blend into each color.  Use an ink blusher to ink over the heat embossed sentiment image with VersaMagic Pixie Dust.

 

Step 7

Pressure emboss 4″ x 5.25″ blended color cardstock with Lifestyle Crafts Tide embossing folder.

 

Step 8

Use a sanding block or sandpaper to gently remove the color from the raised areas of the embossed cardstock.  The white color of the cardstock will show through.

 

Step 9

Die-cut sentiment image and use and ink blusher to in the edges in VersaMagic Spring Pansy.

 

Step 10 

Ink the edges of an A-2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) card base in VersaMagic Spring Pansy.

 

Step 11

Adhere layers together with foam adhesive.  Adhere pearl embellishments in curly- ques of the embossed background.  Adhere pearl embellishments to the center of small flower sequins and adhere with On Point Glue.  Tie a triple looped bow from sheer ribbon and adhere with On Point Glue.
