Create Your Own Shimmer Cardstock and Turn It Into a Mother’s Day Card

2022-April-Katy-Mothers-Day-700x700

By Katy Ingram –

Hello Friends! Katy here with another quick project for you. Today’s card works up super quick, but has several techniques used to create it. I have a video for you below, but a quick recap: I used the Sheer Shimmer Spray in Sparkle on a piece of watercolor paper to start and then once that was dry I blended some Angel Pink Memento Ink and then stamped the center sentiment in Gray Flannel Memento Ink. Lastly, I stamped a floral image in each corner with Sweet Plum Memento Ink. I hope you enjoy the video, thanks so much for watching.

Create A Simple Card Design For Any Occassion

By Katy Ingram –

Hello Friends! Katy here with another quick project for you. Today’s card is super simple and is great for all occasions from just a note to sympathy and everything in between. I initially started off with this “Hello Spring” card, but it quickly rolled into 8 cards and I have several more I can create by using more of those small sentiments we get with most of our stamp sets. I used a single stemmed floral and some ink pad swiping and then a small sentiment. I have a video for you showing just how easy it is and share some stamps from my stash to give you ideas. I also found that stamping over VersaMagic ink with VersaFine Clair will soften the look of the VersaFine Clair ink giving you another way to use both of those inks.
