Big Hugs Card by Nadine Carlier ic

All the new Delicata colors are truly stunning but I have to admit, I think the rose gold is my favorite. I love the gold shimmer it has mixed with the soft rose color. I also added Imagines gold embossing powder as accents to my card to really make it pop

Watch my video tutorial below to see how I created my card. Enjoy!

Make a Beautiful Congrats Card with Delicata Rose Gold

by Elina Stromberg

Make a Beautiful Congrats Card with Delicata Rose Gold

Creating beautiful cards does not necessarily require having lots of different special tools. Of course, crafting tools are handy and make many project steps easier. But sometimes, even if you are surrounded with all the latest crafting gadgets, it’s nice to go back to the basics and create something beautiful using just the simplest supplies.

This card design is super easy to make, and the result looks beautiful. Kids will learn the decoration technique in a flash, so maybe these cards will be the theme for your next creative family afternoon together?

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Directions

Fold a piece of paper in half and draw half of the heart on one side
Step 1

Fold a piece of paper in half and draw half of the heart on one side, making sure that the inside of the heart is in the fold. With the paper folded, cut the half heart shape that you just drew.

Using the eraser end of the pencil and Delicata Rose Gold ink
Step 2

Place the heart in the middle of the card front. Using the eraser end of the pencil and Delicata Rose Gold ink, stamp tiny circles around the heart mask.


Step 3

Place the self-cut heart stencil over the previously masked heart. Mist the heart with clear GooseBumps texture spray. Remove stencil and let air dry.


Step 4

Die-cut the sentiment letters twice, using pink and dark blue cardstock. If you don’t have a die-cutting machine, stamp or hand-draw the text and cut out. Press the bottom half of each letter on clear VersaMark embossing ink. Dip the letter in gold embossing powder. Heat set the powder with a heat gun. Press the upper half of each letter on Rose Gold Delicata ink. Let dry. Glue the decorated pink letters on dark blue ones. The dark letter will appear as a shadow, creating a 3D impression. Glue the letters on the card front. Mat the card front on pink cardstock, attach to card base using double-sided tape.

Optional Version posted on September 1st. Decorate the card with stitches: Place the heart shaped stencil on the card front, punch stitch marks around the heart. Sew with straight stitches, using pink embroidery yarn.

Create a Bright Miss You Very Much Greeting Card

by Tenia Nelson

Tenia here from Jazzy Paper Designs with a Miss You Very Much greeting card made with Imagine and Tsukineko products. With Delicata’s new colors, I was thrilled to see Sapphire and Emerald Green in the new metallic colors. Blue and Green create a beautiful color harmony that compliments bright white cardstock swimmingly.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes + dry time

Directions


Step 1

Ink half of your stamp with Delicata in Emerald Green and the other half in Sapphire Blue. Heat emboss the entire image with clear Embossing Powder. Since Delicata is a pigment ink there is no need to use additional inks for a simple clear embossing.


Step 2

Stamp sentiment in Sapphire Blue and heat emboss. Line up the banner die over your sentiment and die cut.


Step 3

Using Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in New Sprout, unscrew the cap and flick the tube over the image to get a splatter onto image panel.


Step 4

Add sequins, sentiment banner, washi and sticker stitches onto image panel.


Step 5

Adhere image panel onto white card using foam adhesive.

Brighten Someone’s Day with a Teal Greeting Card

Young At Heart by Elina Stromberg

Our August theme color is ‘Teal’. That blue-green, dark turquoise color is not often seen in my projects, but I wanted to challenge myself and gave it a go. That bold color proved to be a perfect choice for my grungy critter card project, and I loved the cool weather-worn look so much that I made a matching ATC, too. I stamped the large colored area two times, first with Turquoise Gem VersaMagic, and then adding a hint of Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy on top. I did not clean the stamp in between, allowing the colors to mix on the stamp. The rich, creamy VersaMagic inks go really a long way. So for getting the last remains of the color of the stamp, I misted the stamp gently with water before pressing it on the paper. The end result looks so cool!

Teal Love Birds

Lovebirds in Teal Zeal by Roni Johnson

The color of the month is Teal here at Imagine which brings to mind the beautiful twilight moments right before the sun starts to set. The birds have settled in the trees and all of the hustle and bustle of the day has subsided. This imagery makes me yearn for a home near a lake.

The background for the card was created by spritzing Danube Blue and Bamboo Leaves Fireworks Spray over wet irRESISTible Texture Medium. The cardstock was tilted in various directions to coat the entire piece of cardstock. The second (lighter colored) piece of cardstock was used to pick up the excess medium from the spray box with a bit more Texture Medium flicked over top. The main image on the card was made using a die-cut masking paper circle and Memento Teal Zeal ink was then sponged over the entire piece. The mask was then removed and the main image was stamped over top again using Memento Teal Zeal. On Point Glue was spread over the exposed sun and extra fine clear glitter was sprinkled on top and finishing touches were added.

Be Inspired by Trifold and Vellum in these 2 Mermaid Cards

Today is full of mermaids! We have two creatively designed cards by Martha and Mischelle which show off the these mysterious mythical creatures. Enjoy!

Be Careful What You Wish For Mermaid Card by Martha Lucia Gomez

I adore mermaids and today I have a Z-Fold card with a lot of dimensions and a very special mermaid to share with you. I made my card with Kaleidacolor inks and Fireworks Spray — two magic products to make extraordinary things!

I will start with the simplest part, the folding of the card. This model is called Z-Fold and you need a piece of card stock of 4 1/4 x 11 inches. Make a score at 2 3/4 inches, 5 1/2 inches and create and mount and valley and voila! Your Z-Fold is created.

Caribbean Sea Kaleidacolor Ink

Now the most interesting part is how you can use the Kaleidacolor inks in different ways. In this sample, I used a piece of whisper white card stock, shaving cream and acrylic blocks of different sizes. I used Caribbean Sea Kaleidacolor Ink. Put a little amount of shaving cream on your mat. Ink the block with the Kaleidacolor ink using at the same time different colors. Apply the shaving cream over the ink using a pallet. Pass the acrylic block over the card stock. Repeat the process until you have the design that you want. When the paper is dry, cut it with a die cut to create the waves. Also, cut waves using the same color of the card base.

Cut a rectangle of the height that you want for the card. In my sample, I covered it partially. Paste over this rectangle the waves using On Point Glue. Paste the rectangle over the folding part of the Z-Fold. Create the inside panel of the card with a digital stamp of a mermaid and a rubber stamp for the sentiment. I printed the mermaid and stamped the sentiment with Teal Zeal Memento Ink. I colored the mermaid with Fireworks Spray and a paint brush. From here you can finish the card with your own personal touches.

What do you think? Please let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by!

The Mermaid Memento Marker and Vellum Card by Mischelle Smith

The Mermaid Memento Marker and Vellum Card by Mischelle Smith

Our theme at Imagine this month is Mystical. I wanted to combine this fun theme with our color of the month Teal. The background of this artsy Mermaid card was created using the technique I shared earlier this month – Faux Gelli Printing with VersaMagic and Ink Potion #9. I typically print in batches and use these prints as card fronts when I need a card on the fly – it’s a huge time saver!

This darling mermaid is printed onto vellum and colored with Memento Markers which complement the background beautifully. This simple card comes together quickly and begs for summer to linger just a little longer.

The Mermaid Memento Marker and Vellum Card by Mischelle Smith

Print or stamp mermaid image and the “a mermaid heart cannot be tamed” saying onto vellum paper. Heat set if necessary. Turn the paper over (so stamped/printed images face down) and color the images. Allow coloring to dry. Cut out images and attach to card with tiny glue dots or your favorite adhesive. Outline edge of card with black Memento Marker. Embellish the card with sequins, washi tape or any other of your favorites. Finish the overall design by spritzing with Sheer Shimmer Spritz.
