How To Make Simple but Impactful Wedding/Anniversary Cards

2022-LeeAnn-April-IG

By LeeAnn McKinney

– Hi there friends and fellow crafters, Today I am here making 2 Impactful but clean and simple cards using Tear It! Tape, On Point Glue, VersaFine CLAIR in Nocturne, MBoss in Clear and Memento Luxe in Wedding Dress.

The first thing I had done to prepare for my video was to create 2 A2 panels 4.25” x 5.5”. I then used my Mini Misti stamped 1 panel with the sentiment from the Gina K Designs Delightful Daisies stamp set using VersaFine CLAIR in Nocturne. This is a Vegetable Oil based ink and takes a little time to dry so put it aside and move to my second panel. 

The second panel, I put in the Altenew Daisy Bed 3D embossing folder and ran it though my Vagabond 2 machine with only 1 cutting plate and the platform, this worked perfectly and gave a great embossing effect. 

I then went back to the first panel and ran it through the embossing folder as well, following that I poured a bit of clear MBoss on the sentiment and heat set it. This gave a seal and a shiny effect to the sentiment and allowed me to move on to the next step, which was using the Memento Luxe Mixed Media Pad in Wedding Dress to add a bit of shine and White color to the Raised edges of the panel. I added this purple panel to the card base, a few Jewels and this card was complete, Moving back to the Mint card, I used On Point glue to adhere the Happy Anniversary Sentiment and Shadow to the front panel, the Cantaloupe Memento Marker to the center of the Daisies and a Jewel for the tittle in the sentiment. Added this to the card base using Tear It Tape and this card was also complete.

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.

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.
