Happy National Scrapbook Day! I love scrapbooking because it gives you a chance to capture memories with those you love. Another feature is you get to collage together beautiful images and colors to encapsulate those memories. In today’s project, I choose lime and purple as the perfect color combination for a young at heart! This layout is filled with interesting floral details combining some of my favorite ink products in a vibrant color combination. Enjoy!
Skill: Advanced Time: 1.5 hours
Stencil a circle background onto smooth white cardstock using texture paste. Leave the paste to dry. Create color by misting the texture with Fireworks sprays and leave to dry.
On the second sheet of white cardstock create a background using Radiant Neon in Electric Green and Delicata in Emerald Green. Use the direct to paper technique to add the color. You can also add color with inkers for even more intensity.
Once the background is dry. Use Delicata ink and stencil a pattern onto the background in selected areas. Punch 2½” circles from your background as well as some 1” circles.
Mist the background with the same colors of Fireworks that you used on the background. Spray in selected areas to create a beautiful shimmer.
Assemble the punched out circles, a photo matted on a black background, and cut out flowers from the patterned paper on the background to create your layout. Add a title like “drive” and additional embellishments like the stars and hearts to finish off the layout. Add additional Walnut Ink splats as well as colors ink splats using the Fireworks sprays.
Every day is a gift! As a way to celebrate this notion, I created a handmade card with the theme “this day celebrate this life” to share this powerful message. See how to use layered ink to create a soft delicate effect with Tsukineko inkers. Create a beautiful effect on quick and easy cards using layered inks with a single stamp design. This effect is so easy but looks amazing against the yellow inked background, fitting right in with our color of the month–Mango. Take a look how I created this easy and effective stamped look.
Skill: Beginner Time: 1 hour + dry time
Create a watercolored style background using Tsukineko Dye Inkers in Golden Brown and Mustard. Add a few drops of both of the inkers onto your craft mat, mist or dilute with water and dip a piece of white cardstock into the ink. This ink is very dense and will coat the entire piece of cardstock. Leave to dry.
Position the flower stamp and cardstock piece with the Misti Stamping Tool and stamp using VersaFine Clair in Pinecone.
Clean the stamp and while keeping it in the same position, ink the image with VersaMagic Mango Madness. Stamp over the same image with the yellow to soften the brown ink color and create an additional layer.
Stamp the sentiment “this day celebrate this life” overlapping the flower images using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne to make it stand out against the brown and yellow tones.
Above is another version of this design. You can play with these ideas to create several cards. From here detail the design in your own style with brads, sequins, diamanté, and mount to the card base to finish the card.

Who doesn’t love a happy color like Mango?! Well, today I combine two sunny VersaMagic colors to create a fun textured “Yes” themed encouragement card using recycled paper. Take a look at how I create loads of interest on this happy card with this versatile pigment ink, some texture paste, and a die cut. The DewDrop inkpad wears its color and versatility like a superstar.
Skill: Intermediate Time: 30 minutes + dry time
Create your own stamp by die-cutting small foam circles and adhering them to an acrylic block. Tack N Peel is perfect for turning anything into a stamp. Ink the stamps using VersaMagic in Mango Madness and stamp repeatedly onto your background.
Add a small amount of VersaMagic in Mango Madness onto your craft mat or a plastic sheet. Lightly press the ink pad onto the surface to transfer some ink.
Add a small amount of texture paste next to the VersaMagic ink on the craft mat. Start off with a small amount and add more as you need it to avoid wasting.
Use your palette knife to mix the ink into the paste to create a colored texture paste.
Apply the paste through a stencil onto the stamped background. Overlap the stamped images several times to create interest. Leave the stenciled paste to dry thoroughly.
Use a paintbrush to lift some VersaMagic in Thatched Straw and create a washed watercolor effect over the stamped and stenciled circles. Mix the ink with a small amount of water and paint it directly onto your background, then leave to dry. Add color to a chipboard circle using two shades of VersaMagic ink and adhere the circle to your card. Add sewing details to the circle. Finish off your card with diamanté and sequins.
Creating subtle interest on cards and other projects is easy with the amazing products from Imagine and Tsukineko. I have been experimenting and creating purple background ombre effects using VersaFine Clair and Memento Luxe ink pads as well as some older favorites like Creative Medium and All-Purpose Inks. Take a look at how to make this card.
Skill: Beginner Time: 30 minutes
Use a jumbo dauber and blend a pattern through a stencil using Memento Luxe Sweet Plum.
Continue the same pattern using a darker shade of ink like Memento Luxe Elderberry.
The blending creates a perfect ombre effect going from light to dark. Did you know that Memento Luxe has superior blending qualities? It makes for the most amazing blended effects with its creamy effortless application.
Add a slight shimmer to the blended effect by adding Creative Medium in Shimmer over the blended pattern.
To create a shade of purple, mix a couple of drops of All-Purpose Ink in Orchid Odyssey into the Creative Medium.
Paint the colored Creative Medium over the pattern and leave to dry. The end result is a subtle shade of purple removing the bright white background, but also adding a beautiful shimmer to the card.
Use VersaFine Clair Monarch and stamp the “Good Vibes” sentiment onto white cardstock and cut it out.
Stamp the sentiment again but directly onto the stenciled background and sprinkle with glitter embossing powder. Heat set the embossing powder to give a beautiful shimmering sentiment on the shimmering background.
Layer the stamped sentiment slightly off-set from the embossed sentiment onto the card using foam tape for added dimension. The embossed sentiment below makes the stamped sentiment really stand out and creates loads of interest. Add irRESISTible Neon Purple splats to finish off your card.
