How To Create A Dewlet Shape Flower Centerpiece In A Scrap Layout

With the new Dewlet die-cut making cute little elements using your Dew Drop ink pads have just become so much easier. I have always loved cutting them out to make flower petals, but now the job is so much easier thanks to this little cutie. There is a world of possibility with this clever die-cut just imagine all the effects you can create.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Use your VersaMagic Dew Drop in Night Sky and stamp directly onto a smooth piece of white cardstock. Leave to dry or heat set using a heat gun.


Step 2

Use Brilliance Dew Drop in Starlight Silver and stamp directly over the first VersaMagic Dew Drop stamped shape.


Step 3

While the Brilliance ink is still wet sprinkle with Embossing Powder in Clear. Shake off the excess and return to the container. Heat set using a heat gun until fully melted.


Step 4

Use your Dewlet die cut shape and cut out the embossed shapes on your die-cutting machine.


Step 5

I used my Dewlet shapes on my layout to create a beautiful flower element rising out from above the photo matt. These Dewlet shapes are perfect as flower petals but can be used for so much more.


Step 6

Use Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Summer Sky to adds light blue splats to the background as well as Walnut Ink Crystals.

Make a Vivid and Impressive Valentine's Day Card

Valentine’s Day is a cardmaking holiday. If you have a lot of people on your card-receiving list and you need to create several of the same cards quickly, it’s easiest when you limit your supply choices. That doesn’t mean, however, that your cards need to look simple. For this design, I choose the new line of VersaFine Clair inks that are beautifully vibrant and I’ve used Tulip Red to create an amazing background color saturation.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour

Directions

Ink background stamps with Tulip Red VersaFine Clair and stamp onto pattern paper.

Learn How to Use Inkers to Create Texture in a DIY Card

by Jowilna Nolte

Learn How to Use Tsukineko teal Inkers to Create Texture in a DIY Card

This month Imagine is celebrating terrific shades of teal and there are quite a few beautiful inks to bring to this party. I love teal and some of my favorite inks include a bit of shimmery goodness in them too. Let’s take a look at how to use these amazing colors with some unique techniques that include plastic wrap, texture paste and sewing to create a fun floral themed card.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour

Directions

Tsukineko Teal ink to be used on your project. I choose Encore, Brilliance and Memento Inks.
Step 1

Select three colors of Tsukineko Teal ink to be used on your project. I choose Encore, Brilliance and Kaleidacolor Inks. (You could also  use StazOn, VersaMagic, Memento or Memento Luxe.) Note that my choices meant we will be blending dye and pigment inks together.

 Teal Memento dye ink inker
Step 2

On a plastic sheet add a few drops of Teal dye ink. Mist the ink with water and then pick up some ink with wadded up cling wrap plastic.


Step 3

Use the inked cling wrap and stamp onto your background. The plastic gives a beautifully textured effect while transferring the ink onto the paper.


Step 4

Add metallic Teal ink directly onto the paper. Mist the ink with water and use your fingers to spread the ink over the paper.


Step 5

Add Brilliance Pearlescent Jade onto the paper, mist with water and spread the ink around.


Step 6

Keep on spreading out the ink and applying color to your paper until you are happy with the look.


Step 7

Mix Brilliance inker into some texture paste and then apply through a flower stencil. Leave to dry and then add machine sewing, stamping, and embellishments. I stamped the sentiment “#wonderful” as a fun message that can be for a social media maven.
