Today I am sharing how to make a Slimline Valentine using Memento inks. Slimline cards are very trendy. This is a great quick and easy card that can be given to the special guy in your life for Valentine’s Day.
Time: 30 minutes
A great thing about slimline cards is that you only need a single sheet of 8.5” x 11” cardstock for the card and card front. Trim cardstock to 7” x 8.5” and score to make a card base of 3.5” x 11. It will fit in a standard A10 envelope. Use a Sponge Dauber and Memento Rose Bud to ink the outer 0.5” of the card base.
Trim the remaining cardstock to 3.25” x 8.25”. Edge with Memento London Fog. Stamp a background in Memento Angel Pink with a small Valentine’s themed image. I used an ancient Rollergraph heart stamp. It is very subtle but adds just a bit of depth to the card.
Die-cut four layers of cardstock with the Technique Tuesday Paper Airplane on the Border Die.
Ink one loop with a sponge dauber and Memento Rose Bud. Ink one airplane in Memento London Fog. Ink one airplane leaving the cutout section in place when inking with Memento Tuxedo Black.
Layer the loops together with dots of On Point Glue, the lower photo shows the very small dots of glue, a little goes a long way! Lightly press together to create a raised die-cut.
Using On Point Glue, layer the Memento Tuxedo Black airplane over one white airplane. Layer the third airplane with the cutouts removed over the Memento Tuxedo Black airplane. Layer the Memento London Fog airplane with cutouts removed on top.
Stamp sentiment image in Memento London Fog. I placed all the elements on the card to decide the position before using a stamp positioner to stamp the sentiment.
Adhere the card front to the base using Tear It! tape.
Adhere die cuts and sequin embellishments with On Point Glue.
In today’s tutorial, I show you how to make a hearts canvas tote bag using the Bokeh Technique using Memento Luxe Inks and Fabrico Markers. Today’s example is Valentine’s tote made using the Imagine Crafts Happy Valentine’s Day Free PDF Download. You can use this same basic technique for any holiday or occasion by changing the mask used.
Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Iron the tote bag to remove all wrinkles.
Insert a piece of cardboard into the tote bag to prevent ink from soaking through to the back of the bag.
Print the desired heart from the PDF onto a piece of cardstock.
Trim the heart mask(s) and adhere to the tote bag using repositionable adhesive.
Gather the desired colors of Memento Luxe Inks.
New or freshly-inked pads work best for this technique.
Gather desired stamps and/or tools to stamp the circles. Pencil erasers, circle stamps, and Sponge Daubers work great for this technique.
Pounce the desired tool onto the ink pad; press and hold for 10-15 seconds to allow time for the canvas to soak up the ink.
Concentrate the dots of ink closer in the center and further apart as you work your way towards the edges.
Continue to add layers of dots with the desired color(s) of ink.
Tip: Highlight Wedding Dress (White) Memento Luxe ink on the canvas with Fabrico Marker (Bubble Gum). This makes the white pop against the canvas and other colors of ink.
Remove the masks and discard.
Outline the hearts using Real Black Fabrico Marker. Add additional details with Fabrico Markers at this time if desired.
Iron the canvas with the hottest setting allowable for the fabric to set the inks.
– Hi everyone! It’s Jessica. I have a simple rainbow ink blending card to share with you today. I used some of the brighter colors from the VersaFine Clair line, but you could try out different colors and different ink pads for a similar look. I also love the positive and motivational sentiment, which I’ve embossed with New Year’s Eve Mboss powder.
In today’s crafting tutorial, I show you how to make Valentine’s Day Card using Memento Dewdrops, Jumbo Dauber, VersaFine Clair, On Point Glue, and Tear It Tape. Show someone they are special by handcrafting a unique Valentine’s Day card using cute heart stencils to match.

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, it’s LeeAnn and we are getting a bit inky today with StazOn ink pads and embossing powder. Making this Halloween Party invitation was fun and easy and the techniques used here can be used with any theme.
Using Clear Mboss just made the gravestone and skeleton images stamped on the front pop, not only with shine but texture as well. Since StazOn is a mixed media ink the embossed surface was color-matched with the background for a great tone-on-tone effect.
