Hi there friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a fun Turnabout Stamping Project anyone can do. This is for all levels. With this stamp set you will start with a single piece of cardstock cut to 6″ x 6″ set up your stamp, ink up the full stamp in one color, turn your paper 1 turn to the right or left, and then ink in 2nd color, turn 1 turn again same direction as before and ink in next color, then one final turn in same direction, ink up again. Once dry cut panel to 4″ x 5.25″, apply to a card base that is 4.25 x 5.5″, I prefer top folding for this. Add your sentiment, some jewels and your project is complete.
Good morning! Kathy here, creating art for Imagine Crafts! Today I have a new tutorial for you. Today’s project is an Easter card but it is also about creating your own backgrounds with Imagine Craft’s Ultimate Pigment Ink Refills! If you don’t have much patterned paper this is an easy background using the refills and baby wipes!
Skill Level: Easy
Time to complete: 1 hour
Cut a piece of a layering weight, white card stock to 4.25” x 5.5”. This will be enough for three holders. Grab your favorite ink refills. For today’s card I used Imagine Craft’s Ultimate Pigment Ink Refills in Canary and Pink. Grab a baby wipe and fold it up nicely.
Dab your ink onto the baby wipe in an alternating order.
Now just swipe across your card stock. YES you will get messy! But it’s fun. You may need to add some more drops. Make sure when swiping that you line up your baby wipe with the last swiped color as you move along.
Time to get messy again! We will spray Sheer Shimmer Spray in Gold all over the panel. I use an old box and lay the panel inside. This contains the spray a bit. The sparkle of these sprays is so pretty and available in so many colors!
I also unscrewed the top of the Shimmer Spray and splattered some random spots. I splattered some small spots using metallic watercolor paint.
Next, I cut some scalloped frames and glued them together with On Point Glue. I used a coordinating pink card stock. Trim the background panel to fit behind the frame and adhere with On Point Glue from Imagine Crafts.
I die-cut some an Easter Egg I had in my stash several times. I used the scalloped frame to die-cut the edges so they would fit perfectly against the frame. I also cut an additional egg to use as the main focal point.
I traced the actual die and cut a solid egg out. I adhered this behind the main egg and adhered with glue. I took the insides of the die cut and just painted some of the pink and yellow refill ink on alternating stripes I also added 2 gold stripes from a metallic card stock.
I stamped, colored and die-cut a cute bunny. I used alcohol markers but any coloring medium will work. I stamped the Easter sentiment on the same pink card stock. I used VersaMark Ink, covered with gold embossing powder and heated. The sentiment, main egg and bunny are popped up with foam tape. The entire panel is added to a horizontal folded A2 card base with foam tape as well. The last thing I did was add a few confetti sequins!
I hope you enjoy this card and the tutorial. Thanks for stopping by I appreciate all of you! Please head over to the Imagine Crafts website to see all the beautiful products. Here is the link IMAGINE CRAFTS.
Hello friends! This is Linh (or LV Handcrafted on all the socials). I’ve made this St. Patrick’s Day card featuring some messy embossing techniques. Embossing powders aren’t just for stamped images. They are fun for creating a distressed, mixed media effect as well!
Here I’ve swiped clear VersaMark ink on the border of black cardstock and embossed with gold. In my video, you’ll also see me use gum arabic and water to create a splatter effect and emboss with gold as well. (There’s some beautiful gold splatter beneath the leprechaun).
Keep the gift boxes you receive and decorate them to hold special gifts.
The recipient will treasure the gift and the stunning box. Great for Valentines or any occasion!
Skill Level: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour plus drying time
Using an Ink Sweeper, stamp the lid using Pink VersaColor covering the top and all sides. You don’t need to ink the entire top of the box because you will be covering it. Heat set thoroughly. Set aside.
TIP: I use a heat tool to speed up the drying process.
Trim a sheet of Mixed Media Strathmore piece of cardstock to about 3″x3″

Secure the inked cardstock to the base of a stamping platform. Position your Elegant Script Background stamp and cover surface with VersaMark. It is important to use a stamp platform for this technique to ensure that the image lines up properly.
Ink the Elegant Script stamp with Rich Cocoa Memento ink.

Use a square die (that’s a bit smaller than your box) to cut Mixed Media cardstock. Stamp with Pink VersaColor.
Tape the inked square to the back of the Slimline Baroque Stencil and ink with Cardinal VersaColor.
Tape each element using Tear-It! Tape. Set Aside.
To create the rose embellishment, take a small piece of cardstock and die cut the flower pieces. The Quickutz Doublekutz Rose bud die set was used here. Using embossing styluses can add dimension to the petals. Press the flower petals into the Cardinal VersaColor ink pad. Let them dry. Sponge with Rose Gold Delicata ink to give them some shimmer. Heat set.
Ink the stem and rose-hip with VersaMagic Hint of Pesto. Heat step. Then add a little Delicata Golden Glitz.
