For today’s card, I heat embossed a few images with white embossing powder and added color by rubbing the VersaMagic and Brilliance Dewdrop inks directly on them. The embossing created a resist and it was super duper quick to have colored elements ready for the card. I heat embossed sentiment on vellum and also created a wooden plank background using Versafine Clair ink. This was a quick card to create and you can do similar cards for your friends and family for any occasion.
In today’s video, I share a mixed media Valentine’s card using the fantastic new dies from Imagine, Dewlets! These adorable dies can be used to create a multitude of wonderful designs. I share how to create hearts using the Memento Dew Drop ink pads in combination with the Dewlets. Also, learn to create a fun watercolored background using the same Memento Inks.
Not only are the Dewlet dies great to use with DewDrop ink pads they also make perfect hearts. Watch my video below to see how I created the hearts with the Dewlet dies and how I used Delicata and VersaFine Clair for the stamped images. Enjoy!
Create a beautifully layered snowflake element for a “So Grateful” greeting card using a variety of Tsukineko products that compliment each other in the Frosted Blue color scheme. This card theme makes a perfect thank you card to send to friends and family for Christmas gift-giving.

Stamp a background image onto white cardstock using VersaFine Clair in Paradise. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set until fully melted and shiny.
Add a few drops of StazOn Studio Glaze Cloudy Sky onto the embossed background and smooth it out using your finger. The glaze just makes the white not as white and adds a nice finishing touch to it.
Ink the edges of the embossed disk using VersaMagic Night Sky. Use a finger dauber to blend the edges should you have to. I used the ink pad directly.
Adhere the embossed disk onto a folded card. Use a small paintbrush and All-Purpose Ink in Sky Mist to add some splatters to the background.
Stamp a large snowflake image onto white cardstock using VersaFine Clair in Twilight. Cut out the snowflake and add a diamanté to the center.
Adhere the snowflake to the circle, add stamped sentiment in VersaFine Clair along the outside edge of the circle. Finish off your card with diamanté.
The new Dewlet etched metal die is so versatile! I have used it to create an interesting background in this card project. I stamped a beautiful pattern in VersaMagic and placed the Dewlet shapes on the background of the card.
Have you had a chance to try out the new Dewlets? Those little metal dies match perfectly with the size and shape of Dew Drops ink pads, providing you new possibilities for creative use of your favorite ink pads. Just stamp and die-cut a pile of drops in your favorite colors, and let the fun begin: You’ll be surprised how many different shapes you can make out of them! In this project, I created a spring theme flower card.
Skill: Beginner Time: 1 hour
Press the DewDrop ink pad on paper to create a drop shaped stamped image. The white paper will replicate the ink color as it is, but you can create exciting variations by using colored and/or patterned papers. Die-cut the drop images with a die-cutting machine, using Dewlets dies.
Highlight the drop edges by painting them with a darker ink and a water brush. Let dry.
Layer background paper(s) on a white card base using two-sided tape or glue.
Assemble flowers. Cut flower stems from green paper. Glue on paper together with the flowers. Finish the project by decorating the flowers and leaves with a white gel pen. Optional: Add more contrast and shadowing with coloring pencils. Do not color the entire die-cut drop, but only add a hint of a darker shade on the edges.
