How To Create a Fall Side Table Decoration for Thanksgiving

by LeeAnn McKinney

Hi there friends, Lee Ann here with a fun fall Thanksgiving Home Decor project. In this video, I tried StazOn Studio Glaze in several different colors and I was hoping to make the house a little fun. We do not have a lot of space (literal tiny home) and so anything I make needs to be condensed or small. I chose to pick up a 5″ x 7″ photo frame and play with the StazOn Studio Glaze with coloring in pumpkins, leaves, and other stamped images. StazOn Studio Glaze is a water-based acrylic product and oh it was fun. I plan to make more for the Christmas holidays.

See How to Make a Fall Themed Birthday Shaker Card with VersaColor Ink

Today, I am showing you a wonderful property of the VersaColor pigment ink! This creamy pigment ink blends so beautifully with sponge daubers. The fall colors I used today created a smooth blend that made a perfect background for a fall card. In addition, I used Fireworks spray to help tone down the background for a gorgeous shimmer frame for a shaker card.

September Color of the Month is Sangria

September Color of the Month is Sangria - Imagine Crafts and Tsukineko USA

As we get closer to Fall we enjoy seeing some of the rich Fall colors come into fashion. For September we felt the deep reddish purple of a Sangria Wine would be perfect for the Color of the Month. Inks from the Imagine Shop that resemble Sangria include All-Purpose Ink in Vintage Wine, VersaFine Clair in Chianti, and Memento in Rhubarb Stalk. Be sure to collect some of these fabulous colors! In the meantime, we have a lovely tutorial for you to kick off September!

Sangria Colored Birthday Wishes by Elina Stromberg

Our beautiful September Color of the Month is ‘Sangria’. That warm red color is a perfect choice for Christmas crafts, but it can very well be used for various crafting projects throughout the year. My ‘Sangria’ inspired project was a monochromatic dimensional flower card, on which the pretty red color really stands out!

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Stamp flowers and leaves on watercolor or mixed media paper using ‘Chianti’ VersaFine Clair. Dab red ‘Rhubard Stalk’ Memento ink on the craft mat. Using the craft mat as palette paint the stamped flowers and leaves. Let dry. Fuzzy cut flowers and leaves and bend the petals gently with your fingers.


Step 2

Place a circle stencil over a sheet of white mixed media paper. Secure with small pieces of masking tape. Ink circle with two Memento colors; ‘Rhubard Stalk’ and ‘Sweet Plum’ stamp.


Step 3

To create patterns on the inked circle keep the stencil still in place, dab water drops on the ink. Memento inks are water-soluble so the inked surface will react with water. When you’re happy with the pattern, lift the excess water with a paper towel and let dry.


Step 4

Trim card front to the desired size. Heat-emboss the sentiment on the card, mat card front on a piece of matching ‘Sangria’ colored paper. Attach card front to a white card base. Glue painted and fuzzy-cut flowers on the card front. Decorate flowers with metallic seed beads.

Extra: To create a more dramatic look with the large flowers, bend them in the center and work the paper until the petals pop forward off the card!

Moments at Home

by Terre Fry

A handmade card featuring colorful die cute leaves inked with Memento Dew Drops with the sentiments "Some of my favorite meoments happened at home" made by Terre Fry.

Fall is a time when all the trees change color, the air begins to get chilly and families spend many hours outside enjoying the richness of the season. I too have been enjoying all the fall festivals my new home in Colorado. But the best part is when I get to spend time with my husband and little girl creating new memories at home.

Skill: Intermediate

Owls on Kaleidacolor

What a Hoot!

by Alison Heikkila

An ombre card in browns featuring several die cut and stamped owls handmade by Alison Heikkila.

Hello! Alison here, and today I have a tutorial featuring Imagine’s Kaleidacolor inks. I love the range of colors in these sets. Did you know that you can actually purchase empty pads and create your own rainbow? How cool is that? Today, my project features the Cappuccino Delight set, and since it’s October, my project is Halloween themed.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 45 minutes + dry time

Directions

2016_oct_ah_owls_step12016_oct_ah_owls_step2

Step 1

Push together the pads of the Kalediacolor and roll out the ink on to a brayer. Spray the brayer several times (spinning it as you go) with Ink Potion No. 9 to help the ink stay wet and to encourage the migration of color. Roll out on your cardstock.

Step 2

While the ink is drying on the watercolor paper (you don’t have a very long wait), stamp the owls (or other fun Halloween stamp) on smooth cream colored cardstock using Rich Cocoa Memento. Die cut.

Step 3

Take the background and lay the owls randomly on top of it. Allow some to overhang. Be sure to have their directions vary slightly for a little more whimsy. You can see this in the left photo below.

Step 4

Glue down the owls, remembering to leave them hanging off the edge. Once the owls are glued, you can trim off the excess, as seen in the middle photo above. Now you can take those pieces and add them to empty spots on the background as I did in the photo on the right.

Step 5

Spray the background with Gold irRESISTable Spray and let dry.

Step 6

Stamp the sentiment using the same Kaleidacolor ink as before. Be sure to push the pads together. I wanted a vertical ombre effect, so I inked my stamp as in the photo above. Then I stamped it on to the same cardstock I used for the owls.

2016_oct_ah_owls_step7

Step 7

Die cut the sentiment. I used the Large “L” Fitted frame from Stampendous. Using Desert Sand Memento, I tapped the pad lightly on to my sentiment. The ink pad creates a really nice texture on the paper. Then I added Rich Cocoa Memento to the edges.

Step 8

Ink the card base with Desert Sand Memento and attach the layers together.
