In this cardmaking tutorial, Nicole shares one of her favorite fall color combos using VersaColor inks. Nicole swatches out jewel-tone colors in dark pink with a rich true blue mixed in with a light warm splatter with Delicata. Pigment inks are a perfect ink for blending a colorful gradient from two different color ranges.

This DIY Mazel Tov greeting card (or Good Luck greeting card) is topped with a gold heat embossed vellum layer. This beautiful style is a perfect card for a newlywed couple. Enjoy!

Guest Artist: Helen Gullett with Color Blending

We did a Call for Art for Color Blending. And we got a great submission by Helen Gullett! We love this card design!

Helen writes:

I had fun creating the background using VersaFine Clair ink pads: Blue Belle, Purple Delight, Tulip Red, Summertime, Green Oasis, and Nocturne (Black). I picked the ink up with a makeup sponge and started sponging it on white cardstock. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Light House Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad, and then I heat set the ink with craft heater. I colored the image with ShinHan Twin Touch Markers and Colorless Blender Marker. After that, I fussy cut the image, and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Blue Belle and trimmed it.
