Create Shiny Floral Background Using Irresistible Pico Embellisher

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

For today’s card, I used one tiny stamp and VersaFine in Onyx Black to create a cute and simple card design. I stamped the open line flower image all over the card stock and then used the Irresistible Pico Embellisher to fill the petals. The shine you get after the product dries is breathtaking. I love the simple yet unusual look of the card.

Learn Vintage Monotone Watercoloring with Walnut Ink

I stamped a beautiful flower bunch from Simon Says Stamp with Brilliance Ink on a watercolor paper. I added some water on a small scoop of Walnut Crystals and painted the entire bunch with it. This is a monotonic theme card and I have used only one pigment to create all the highlights and shadows. I stamped a simple sentiment with Pinecone Versafine Clair ink and the painted panel is ready.

Share Love and Hugs with Kaleidacolor Ink Blended Cards

For these beautiful set of cards, I used the Kaleidacolor ink pads. I added the color on a Gelli plate and then used a brayer to transfer the ink on the paper. I love the smooth beautiful blend and to add some texture I added few water and shimmer splatters. I used a floral stamp and embossed it on the inked cardstock using silver embossing powder and VersaMark Ink. I used a tiny strip of silver glitter paper and a sentiment to finish the card.

Make a Birthday Card with Walnut Ink and VersaFine

It is so easy to create a quick and beautiful background with Walnut Ink! I used Walnut Ink sprays to create a blended background in this super quick birthday card. I love the muted tones of the Walnut Ink, but these steps can be done with Fireworks as well for a shimmery and bright look. I used a few silhouette stamps of flowers and stems with VersaFine Ink and finished the card with a sentiment stamped on a kraft card strip. This is a super quick card using very little supplies and can be mass-produced with ease.

Make a Faux Batik Prints with GooseBumps Texture Spray + Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray

Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth this technique originated in Indonesia. I tried to mimic the batik effect using Goose Bumps Dauber and used it to create a resist. I used a leaf stamp and dabbed it with GooseBumps and created an impression on white paper. Then I added firework sprays to get the beautiful green background. I also heat embossed some leaves on vellum and adhered them on to the card to finish it.
