See How to Make a Cute Japanese Mountain Scene Greeting Card

For today’s card, I used an adorable Konnichiwa Stamp Set by Waffle Flower Stamps and Memento markers to create a mountain scene. I stamped the images on watercolor paper with VersaFine in Onyx Black and then cut out each one individually. VersaFine is a great ink for watercoloring because it does not react with water-based inks. For the sentiment “how are you,” which is in English and Japanese, I used VersaMark ink and white embossing powder. To add some finishing touches, I added Pico Embellisher at few areas which creates a nice dimensional effect. The card is super cute easy to make.

Learn How to use Creative Medium to make a Mixed Media Tag

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

For today’s mixed media tag, I used Imagine mixed media products. I took the chipboard tag and added Black gesso to get a nice dark base. Then I took a stencil and Creative Medium to add a beautiful flourish. I also added decorative chipboard cutouts, resin pieces (heart with wings) and paper flowers to my layout. Creative medium is a great adhesive for adhering all my unique pieces onto the tag. Once everything was dry, I added the beautiful Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray and Golden Delicata ink to give this creative gift tag extra sparkle and shine. The shimmer products are especially bright on dark backgrounds and take on a new life!

Create a Chic Background Pattern on a Card with GooseBumps

Create Chic Background Pattern on a Card with Goosebumps

For today’s card, I used a few VersaMagic DewDrop Inkpads to watercolor and the VersaFine Onyx Black Inkpad for stamping the floral image and sentiment. I created a circle pattern background using GooseBumps and a paintbrush. Once the GooseBumps was dry I added the VersaMagic inks on top and the GooseBumps created a resist. I wiped the excess ink with a dry tissue and the white circles looked even prettier. Then I stamped a flower and leaf using VersaFine Onyx Black and colored them using the same VersaMagic Inks. I dabbed the inkpads on the Imagine Craft Mat and then picked up the pigment with a wet brush to color the images. I finished the card by adding a sentiment.

See How to Create Stunning Card Design on Black Paper

For today’s card, I used the new StazOn Pigment inks to create this stenciled floral background. I love the way StazOn Pigment Ink looks on dark/black card stock. This is a very easy and simple card to make because the ink is so vibrant. I used my old daubers to add the pigment on my black card stock if you do not have old dauber then consider using an InkBlusher. To make an impact on this design, I first added white ink and then the colored ink on top. This gives me a brighter vibrant impression and I like it a lot. I used a sentiment “sending hugs” stamped in black and added few details to the inside of the flowers with my white gel pen to finish the card.
