by Nadine Carlier

Big Hugs Card by Nadine Carlier ic

All the new Delicata colors are truly stunning but I have to admit, I think the rose gold is my favorite. I love the gold shimmer it has mixed with the soft rose color. I also added Imagines gold embossing powder as accents to my card to really make it pop

Watch my video tutorial below to see how I created my card. Enjoy!

See How To Create Mixed Media ATC’s

by Nadine Carlier

ATC cards by Nadine Carlier ic

What is an ATC? “Artist trading cards (commonly referred to as ATCs) are 2 ½” x 3 ½” miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world with other artists. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized “swap” events, either in person or online.”

I enjoy trading ATC’s with other crafters, not only is it fun I also really like to be able to see what others create. Everyone has such different styles, and they all inspire me one way or another. ATC’s don’t have to be hard to make or super elaborate just as long as they reflect you and your style. All I needed to create these ATC’s was some Creative Medium, Walnut Ink, irRESISTible, VersaColor, and VersaMagic.

Watch my video tutorial below on how I created them. Enjoy!

Have An Awesome Day Card by Nadine Carlier Imagine Tsukineko

Want to do something different today with cardmaking? Why not try texture? irRESISTibles texture spray is used in mixed media projects to create chaotic and awesome effects on paper. But to achieve more control, you can use irRESISTibles with a paint brush!

Coloring in stamps with irRESISTible Texture Spray is a great way to add dimension to a handmade card that will dry and retain its shiny effects. Nadine Carlier created a tutorial video showing how she crafted this floral themed card using Waffle Flower stamps, Delicata Metallic Inks, and irRESISTibles. Enjoy!
