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

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.

Learn How to Create a Daisy Flower With Dewlets

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

For today’s card, I used the new Dewlets Die to create a beautiful paper daisy. I used the die to cut out a few petals and adhered it on the card panel with the On Point Glue. Then I created a striped pattern on the card base using washi tape and VersaFine ink. To jazz up the flower I added tiny dots using the Pico embellisher, which is super shiny and dimensional. I finished the card with a sentiment “Wish Big”. This is a perfect project to be done with kids.

How to Make a Gingerbread House Garland

by Jennifer Vanderbeek

How to Make a Gingerbread House Garland

Die cuts and a few choice supplies combine to create this darling little gingerbread house garland. Not only is it perfect for the holidays, it’s an ideal craft to let kids help decorate (after the embossing is done!) and it would also look super sweet at a fairy tale themed event—think Hansel and Gretel and the witch’s house in the woods. A fun technique used in this project is layering the StazOn Studio Glaze while still wet. Drawing the tip of the Claret StazOn Studio Glaze bottle over the Cotton White made for near-seamless candy cane stripes once dried. Also, I’ve found it helps to be very generous with the Cotton White, especially on darker papers or backgrounds, if you want it to retain some opacity.

The holidays are almost here and there is nothing as iconic for Christmas as a gingerbread house during the holidays.
