by Nadine Carlier

Christmas Card by Nadine Carlier wm ic

When you have to make a bunch of Christmas cards, the easier they are to make the better. Even though I wanted to make a pretty simple card, I also didn’t want it to look simple.  The red on red created a perfect background using Fireworks in Lady Bug and stamping over it with Delicata Ruby Red. Then I added some silver embellishments for the perfect pop of wow!

Pinecone Holiday Card by Nadine Carlier ic wm

 

Using Neon Radiant Amplify on holiday cards is a fabulous way to create a snowy effect. On my card today I used Amplify in white with a stencil and some Dark Brown Shimmer Delicata Ink. I am really loving how the pinecone on my card looks like it is flocked with snow!

Watch a Video on Creating an Eerie Night Sky

Spooky Night Sky by Nadine Carlier Imagine Crafts

 

I have always loved the purple and black color combo and especially for Halloween cards. This eerie night sky background was really easy to do, all you need is just a couple VersaColor inks, some Memento ink, and some sponge daubers. Doesn’t the white moon really pop next to the purple?

Give Some Hope With Delicata Inks

Breast Cancer Awareness Hope Card by Nadine Carlier IC

Happy last day of September! With tomorrow being the first day of October and with October being the month for breast cancer awareness I thought a hope card was fitting. Plus, the new Delicata Rose Gold and Pink Shimmer made the perfect pink ribbons. I wish my handwriting was better for the sentiment “hope” that I wrote using a Fantastix but if we wanted perfect cards all the time we would just go buy a Hallmark card. 🙂

See How To Create Mixed Media ATC’s

by Nadine Carlier

ATC cards by Nadine Carlier ic

What is an ATC? “Artist trading cards (commonly referred to as ATCs) are 2 ½” x 3 ½” miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world with other artists. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized “swap” events, either in person or online.”

I enjoy trading ATC’s with other crafters, not only is it fun I also really like to be able to see what others create. Everyone has such different styles, and they all inspire me one way or another. ATC’s don’t have to be hard to make or super elaborate just as long as they reflect you and your style. All I needed to create these ATC’s was some Creative Medium, Walnut Ink, irRESISTible, VersaColor, and VersaMagic.

Watch my video tutorial below on how I created them. Enjoy!

Have An Awesome Day Card by Nadine Carlier Imagine Tsukineko

Want to do something different today with cardmaking? Why not try texture? irRESISTibles texture spray is used in mixed media projects to create chaotic and awesome effects on paper. But to achieve more control, you can use irRESISTibles with a paint brush!

Coloring in stamps with irRESISTible Texture Spray is a great way to add dimension to a handmade card that will dry and retain its shiny effects. Nadine Carlier created a tutorial video showing how she crafted this floral themed card using Waffle Flower stamps, Delicata Metallic Inks, and irRESISTibles. Enjoy!
