By Katy Ingram –

Hello and welcome! Katy here with a new video. Many of you may have noticed from my last couple videos that I use VersaFine Clair Inks a lot and that I love to ink blend with them. Today’s video is no exception. I used two VersaFine Clair Inks that blend beautifully and create the most amazing burnt orange color that is perfect for Fall. In the video I also talk a bit about how to have better success with your ink blending by using Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper and I also show you a simple way to create sentiment strips that are fool proof. I hope you find these tips helpful and I hope you enjoy the video. Thanks so much for watching.

THANKS, You Mean So Much To Me with Imagine Crafts

2021_LeeAnn_Nov_IG

By LeeAnn McKinney –

Hi there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with a fun Thanks card, using products you might not think about when not using them in the means intended.

I purchased a few (4) Hot Foil Dies a couple months ago, and didn’t have the machine needed to play with them. So I’ve been thinking, and decided to use them like a letter press. I inked up the Fall Leaves with VersaFine Clair Pigment Ink in Tulip Red, Summertime Cheerful, Verdant and Pinecone, taped it to a panel of Mixed Media Cardstock and then did the same with the word “Thanks”, using Delicata Golden Glitz. I used a piece of heavyweight cardstock and rubber embossing pad, on my big shot platform, then added my panel with the foil plates adhered to it and then the regular top plate, ran it through my big shot twice (forward then back) and wow, other than a little over-inking where I tried to cover up with some sequins they turned out amazing. I used On Point Glue to adhere the sequins and Tear It! Tape to adhere the panel to my cardbase. I also heat embossed the secondary part of the sentiment using Mboss Gold Embossing Powder.

Hope you enjoy. Watch until the end and let me know which card you prefer, the card on the left without the sequins or the card on the right with the sequins. Oh, forgot that I used Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz on my panel as well.

Thanks for watching, have a great day.

How to Make a Spooky Card

Crow-10-600

By Alison Heikkila –

Halloween is a great time to experiment with deeper shades, interesting textures, and unique combinations. Things don’t need to be pretty or perfect…in fact, the weirder and more off-kilter they are, the better! Let’s use a variety of Imagine products to make a spooky card for Halloween.

Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Time: 30 Minutes, including drying time

Directions:

Crow-1

Step 1:

Apply Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink Refill to a 6×6 gel printing plate and roll out with a brayer.

Crow-2

Step 2:

Lay your stencil on to the gel plate. Using a piece of scrap paper, rub the negative space areas to pick up the ink. Pull the print. You won’t be using this print for this project, but you can save it for another time.

Step 3:

Lift the stencil off of the plate.

Step 4:

Lay a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ black cardstock on top of the plate, where the stenciled image is. rub the paper on to the plate firmly, making sure to rub all areas to ensure a clean pull.

 

Crow-3

Step 5:

Pull the print.

Crow-5

Step 6:

Splatter irRESISTibles Spray in Love Letter on to the gel print. I open the bottle and tap the straw to get nice, big splatters. Let dry.

Crow-4

Step 7:

On a piece of gray cardstock, stamp a solid or silhouette image with VersaMark ink. I used a crow.

 

Step 8:

Sprinkle Shimmering Night Sky Mboss powder on to the inked image, tap off the excess, and heat set. Then, you can fussy cut the image out.

Crow-6

Step 9:

Die cut your sentiment out of a deep orange cardstock.

Step 10:

Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, press the front side of the letters into the pad gently. Memento ink pads have a wonderful texture, which will work perfectly with our creepy card.

Step 11:

On a black A2-sized card base, ink the edges with Black Shimmer Delicata Ink.


Step 12:

Adhere all of your elements on to the card base.
