Create a Beautiful Icy Blue Holiday Card

Although red, green and gold colors are the most representative ones of Christmas, the last couple of years, I am quite fun of blue that combines so nicely with the silver and contrasts the white. Stars are favorite shapes of this season and using Delicata Sapphire Blue on lighter shades of blue, using MEMENTO bahama blue, give more depth on the card.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Die-cut 3 different sized star shapes.


Step 2

Place the star shapes on a piece of 4×6 card stock and spray first with the Fireworks! Bahama blue and then with Ink Potion No9. Remove the stars and dry the card stock with a heat tool.


Step 3

Lightly cover areas with MEMENTO Bahama blue ink pad.


Step 4

Place the star shapes, white side up, stamp with VersaMark the swirls stamp, cover with Mboss clear embossing powder and heat set.


Step 5

Distress the stars with Delicata Sapphire Blue.


Step 6

Stamp design on the stars, cover with Mboss white embossing powder and heat set. When finished, lightly press the edges of the stars on the VersaMark watermark ink pad, and heat set Mboss silver embossing powder.


Step 7

Set the card stock piece on the card with Tear It! Tape and start placing the ribbon.


Step 8

Continue adding the stars and the rest of the embellishments

by Jowilna Nolte

Make a Peacock Feather Design with All-Purpose Inks

The month of March celebrates the beautiful color in Peacock Feathers and with so many ink choices in just the perfect colors, it was hard to choose what to create. But in the end, my love for watercolors and the stunning effects won and I created this art journal page using All-Purpose Inks.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Color a sheet of watercolor paper. Paint a layer of water on top and then drop All-Purpose Ink onto the paper to let it mix and flow. Mist with more water to activate and promote flow. Leave to dry.


Step 2

Die-cut a peacock feather using a Silhouette machine. Paint with a layer of gesso and then add color using peacock color shades of All-Purpose Inks and a paint brush.


Step 3

Once the feather is dry, use On Point Glue to adhere the feather to the watercolor paper piece.


Step 4

To add shading and interest, add some grey and brown ink to your craft mat and mist with water, then paint in shadows. Use a graphite pencil for shading even more and adding details.


Step 5

Add some additional stamping and a quote as desired. Then adhere the page into your art journal or frame it as a home decor piece.

Create an Ombre Background Using VersaFine Clair and Vellum Flowers

For today’s card, I heat embossed few flower images with white embossing powder on vellum. I used my sharp pair of scissors to cut them. To create the background I have used Versafine Clair inks which are very highly pigmented and also blend beautifully with each other. I used a jumbo dauber to add the colors. The sunset ombre looks so beautiful and then arranged the flowers on the card. To finish the card I added few splatters of the shimmer spray and a sentiment.

Learn How To Make A Paper Flower Spring Card

by Elina Stromberg

Learn How To Make A Paper Flower Spring Card

Have you had a chance to try out the new Dewlets? Those little metal dies match perfectly with the size and shape of Dew Drops ink pads, providing you new possibilities for creative use of your favorite ink pads. Just stamp and die-cut a pile of drops in your favorite colors, and let the fun begin: You’ll be surprised how many different shapes you can make out of them! In this project, I created a spring theme flower card.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Press the DewDrop ink pad on paper to create a drop shaped stamped image. The white paper will replicate the ink color as it is, but you can create exciting variations by using colored and/or patterned papers. Die-cut the drop images with a die-cutting machine, using Dewlets dies.


Step 2

Highlight the drop edges by painting them with a darker ink and a water brush. Let dry.


Step 3

Layer background paper(s) on a white card base using two-sided tape or glue.


Step 4

Assemble flowers. Cut flower stems from green paper. Glue on paper together with the flowers. Finish the project by decorating the flowers and leaves with a white gel pen. Optional: Add more contrast and shadowing with coloring pencils. Do not color the entire die-cut drop, but only add a hint of a darker shade on the edges.
