Project Swap: Inspire with Herringbone Art

Project Swap: Inspire with Herringbone Art

Welcome to another set for our Artist Project Swap with Nadine and Roni. For the Month of May, we challenged our artists to exchange tutorials and create each other’s designs in order to see how each of our artists interprets style and choices. The receiving artist did not know who designed the project, nor did they receive any images! In today’s post, Roni gives the directions and recommended supplies list and Nadine created the project.

I absolutely loved swapping projects with Roni Johnson! This project was not something I would have ever thought of making on my own but I really enjoyed making it. I didn’t have all the exact same products that she used but was able to improvise with no problem. Besides, I prefer not to copy something exactly and put my own twist on it.

I made a video showing how I created my project. Watch it below!

Layering Different Inks With Layered Stamps

by Nadine Carlier

Hydrangea Card by Nadine Carlier main ic

So often when using layering stamps I think I need to use the same kind of inks for each layer. Nope! Mix it up some with different combos to see what great looks you can achieve. I love the look that the Delicata White Shimmer added over a layer of VersaFine Clair and Memento ink to create my hydrangea flowers.

Watch my video tutorial below to see how I created the flowers and the background for my card. Enjoy!

Stamping On Acetate With StazOn

by Nadine Carlier

Wedding Card by Nadine Carlier IC

Have you ever tried to stamp onto plastic or acetate? Normally it takes close to never to dry and if you do finally get it to dry it will still smear ruining what you just stamped. Not if you use StazOn ink! I used a background stamp with some Cotton White Opaque StazOn Ink to create this pretty wedding card.

Watch my video tutorial below to see how I created my card and how amazing StazOn works on acetate. Enjoy!
