Hello everyone, today I have a quick and elegant card. This technique would be perfect for a wedding invitation. I create the shimmer and texture using the new Sheer Shimmer Stix in Frost and an embossing folder. The base of my card is Whisper White cardstock and I cut a second layer using the same color of cardstock, but apply the shimmer-texture technique for a very cool tone on tone look.
Skill: Beginner Time: 30 minutes
Determine the area that you want to paint and add texture. I used post it tape to obtain a straight line.
Evenly apply the Sheer Shimmer Frost with the Stix Dauber. Let the paper dry naturally, it takes a few seconds only.
Without removing the post it tape, take an embossing folder of your preference and align the borders to only emboss the painted area. Pass the sandwich through your cutting machine.
Remove the post it tape and stamp your message on the upper area. I used VersaMark and embossing powder in Gold to stamp my message. It is an image included on the stamp set Happily Ever After from The Rabbit Hole Designs.
Resize your layer and paste it directly over the card base. If you want to add more decorations or details you can do it before to paste the decorated layer on to the card base.
We all need a little inspiration sometimes and, for this project, I took my inspiration from the Impressionism style of paintings from the 1860s. It resulted in a fun project using the All-Purpose inks and other Imagine products to create a miniature floral scene on a 4”x4” flat panel canvas.
Skill: Beginners Time: 1 hour
Apply Cool Grey ink to the canvas with a bullet-shaped Fantastix.
Stipple on Sky Mist ink with Fantastix to the upper portion of the canvas.
Stipple on Celadon ink to lower portion of canvas with Fantastix.
Stipple Blue Bayou onto the upper portion of the canvas, sparingly.
Place Celedon ink onto craft mat, ink stamp, & stamp stems onto the lower portion of the canvas.
Stamp roses with VersaFine Clair in Medieval Blue & Monarch across canvas above the stems.
Stamp saying with VersaFine Nocturne onto the canvas.
