Wedding invitation styles are constantly changing and updating and recently on Pinterest I have seen some beautiful CLEAR invitations. I wanted to find a DIY to make clear invitations and still have them be very elegant. I used StazOn Pigment Ink and a stamp layering stamp set to get the look I was going for, and it was easier than I thought to create these see-through invitations!

April Color of the Month is White Wedding

April Color of the Month is White Wedding

“Hey, little sister what have you done? Hey, little sister who is the only one?”…*continues Billy Idol song until the chorus* “It’s a nice day for a White Wedding”! We are happy to announce the Color of the Month for April is White Wedding. With wedding season just around the bend, we hope you are stocking up on the right inks for your special day.

We have been very pleased with our latest release of StazOn Pigment Ink in Snowflake. This ink will be great for multiple surfaces and especially great on dark or kraft cardstock. Another set of fantastic inks for wedding crafts is Delicata in White Shimmer (the name speaks for itself), Brilliance in Moonlight White (a bit of a heavier pigment ink), and VersaMagic in Cloud White (matte finish ink).

As always we challenge our artist with the color of the month and a technique or theme. This month expect to see white inks and wedding crafts!

Here is a Sneak Peak!

I love to send cards to people, but adding in unexpected touches is one of my favorite things to do! Today’s card has one of those surprises – a completely clear front! Using the new StazOn Pigment ink and acetate, I was able to create my own patterned acetate using Waffle Flower stamps to make the front of the card really unique!
