Broken Heart Mini Card by Tenia Nelson

Hey Y’all! Tenia here from Jazzy Paper Designs with a sympathy or broken heart mini card measuring 3 x 3 inches and made with Imagine and Tsukineko ink products. Sometimes sending someone a sweet message when they are feeling blue is a nice way to show them you are thinking of them.

Broken Heart Mini Card by Tenia Nelson

Using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the heart image onto 3 x 3 inch card. Next, spray a Bahama Blue Fireworks onto card to give the splatter effect in the background. Ink the same heart stamp with VersaMark, stamp and heat emboss onto red cardstock. Cut out embossed image and adhere to card using the first stamp as a guide and attach with foam adhesive.

Since green is a natural complement to red, ink the sentiment with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink and stamp sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and cut around the sentiment. Adhere this text block onto card using foam adhesive. Also add washi, patterned paper and sticker stitches. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Just Dance Watercolor Card by Elina Stromberg

Just Dance Watercolor Card by Elina Stromberg

Watercolors are an easy way to create beautiful backgrounds for your card projects. However, there are differences between watercolors; many cheap watercolor palettes may be rich in pigment, but once dry the colors becomes chalky and less vibrant. Liquid colors are a good choice, and the water-based Fireworks Craft Spray have become my favorite. In addition to the lively rich colors Fireworks also adds a bit of shimmer to your projects.

When making simple one-layer cards with watercolor background, I often use liquid masking fluid for protecting the main image. I start with stamping the image, and then cover it with a thin layer of masking fluid. Once the rubber layer is dry, I can simply paint over the image to create my background. On this card, I wanted to add more texture on top of the watercolors. So I used irRESISTibles and embossing powder to create this effect. The bottom part (earthy ground) of the image is decorated with gold irRESISTible Pico Embellisher creates a raised look. While the white and copper dust textures are embossing powder are super fine with a raised look as well. The red dress and hat are painted with a water brush, using red VersaMagic ink. And I left an open space in the sky to stamp the sentiment.

Be Extra Creative Today with Sentiments of Love

We have two projects today that share something in common– they both use sentiments of love! Tenia uses handlettering to get across a loving message in a journal page that can serve as a reminder to practice love in all things. While Renee creates a “miss you” greeting card that can be given out any time. Both are great projects to fill your day with a positive vibe!

Hand lettering with memento markers

Hand lettering with Memento Markers by Tenia Nelson

Tenia here from Jazzy Paper Designs with a super fun project made with Tsukineko and Imagine products. Learning to hand letter your craft projects is a life-long study. You can spend hours each day and thousands of sheets of paper practicing loops of an “l” or the descender shapes of a “g”. I am guilty of such an obsessive study. In the above photo, I share the fruits of my labor!! I untwisted the nozzle of my Fireworks bottle and tapped some splashes out on the page, then wrote the sentiment “do it with love” in orange, then followed through with outlining in fine point with black ink. I kept this simple, and of course you can add more details, words, and photos if you wish to turn this into a more art journal project. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

miss you greeting card handmade by renee zarate

Miss You Handmade Card by Renee Zarate

Like most crafters, I have a stash of cards that can be used at a moment’s notice. When I make master boards, I generally make a few cards or ATCs with the remains of the main project and into my emergency reserve they go. Our color challenge this month was “Tangerine”, a cheerful color of summer, so I decided to make a master board combining all different shades of orange that I have on hand. Objects in nature are never a single flat color but generally an eye pleasing combination of multiple shades of one color, including tangerines.

Tangerine Masterboard for handmade cards

First, I created a monochromatic master board using different shades of orange. I sprayed water on a piece of Mixed Media paper, laid a stencil on top of the wet paper and with a large dauber began pouncing different colors of orange inks. I wiped off the stencil with a baby wipe and dried the paper with a heat tool. Next, I cut a piece of the master board measuring 2 ½” x 3 ½” (standard ATC size). Then, I decorated the masterboard piece with a bird stamp and die cut, washi tape and stamp a sentiment “miss you”, and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

From here it is smooth sailing. I finished the card by mounting the masterboard piece on mat panel of black, gray and orange cardstock, again on black cardstock, then onto patterned paper and finally mount to a blank white card base. For one last polishing touch, I colored a few paper flowers with ink, let dry and attached them to the upper corner of the card with a strong adhesive.
