Step 4

Emboss a scrap cardstock strip using Indigo Pealr Mboss embossing powder and VersaMark Frost. Then cut the strip with a scallop edge. Emboss a chipboard heart using the same Indigo Pearl Mboss embossing powder.

Step 5

Assemble the card by adhering the panel to a folded card. Then adhere the embossed heart using On Point glue as well as the embossed strip and embellishments to finish off your card.

The embossing powder adds some glamour and shine to this simple yet fun card. Just like the couple – fun colours combined together with a touch of glam and pizazz.
Mboss embossing powder really takes any project t the next level. Available in a  huge variety of colours they truly are amazing.

How to Make a Mother’s Day Card

2021_April2_JN_Mothersdaycard_1

By Jowilna Nolte 

I am not one for a traditional Mother’s Day Card – although the message inside may be one of gratitude, on the outside it can reflect something personal as well.

Instead of doing the usual thing I combined some fun stamping and inking with a vinyl heart and a little stamped sentiment that will mean the world to my mom.

“FRESH START” is my prayer for her this Mother’s Day – the beginning of so much more than just being a mother.

Skill Level: Beginner

Time: 30 minutes

Directions:

Step 2
On a white smooth cardstock background, use the VersaMagic and ink the background. Combine the “direct to paper” method carefully blending the ink and then use a sponge dauber for achieve an ombre effect towards the top.

Step 3

Stamp onto the background several times overlapping different stamp designs and VersaMagic ink. Then finishing off the top layer using Delicate White Shimmer to stamp the last layer. Look at that gorgeous shimmer.

How to Create Some Fresh and Funky Cards for Valentine’s Day

By Jowilna Nolte 

Hi everyone, on today’s blog, I am sharing some fun cards I created using StazOn Studio Glaze.
I love this stuff for the fun effects you can achieve as well as the vibrant and amazing colors in the range.

Skill Level: Beginner

Time: 20 minutes

Directions:

Step 1
Squeeze some glaze onto your squeegee and swipe your first color over a sheet of smooth white cardstock.
You can leave this to dry for a few minutes.

 

Step 2
Apply a second color to your squeegee and swipe it over the first color. I use the rubber side on my squeegee but also sometimes use one of the other edges.
Both edges work perfectly, and you can always create some effects using the textured sides.

 

Step 3

I also used a second color combination and created another sheet for a fresh spring look.

 

Step 4

Once your background is dry, use a heart or flower die-cut and die-cut some shapes using your die-cutting machine.

 

Step 5

Use your VersaFine Clair ink and color some chipboard words by directly inking the words.
Once dry, you can adhere them to your card.

 

Step 6

Assemble your card by adhering the hearts to your background using foam tape.
Adhere the “love” word using On Point Glue and finish off your card with an enamel dot.

 

And in a few easy steps, you have a gorgeous set of cards using some fun backgrounds and hearts.

For me the shine, texture, and patterns achieved are what makes these cards so special, and I just love using these glazes.

Until next time – keep on creating!
