Are you looking for a great Halloween card idea? Creating easy ink smooshed card panels with Memento Luxe inks and Sheer Shimmer Spray, perfect for backgrounds or die-cutting. In this video, I make two Halloween Spooky Bat theme card designs using these relaxing and enjoyable art techniques.
The new StazOn Pigment ink is here!! Yay! I am so excited to share this wonderful new ink with you! I can hardly contain myself. I made a simple, springtime, gnome card to show you some of the versatility of this new ink. I stamped Peacock Feathers on kraft cardstock and Lemon Drop on a metal tag and both look great! This ink will work on porous and non-porous surfaces, dries quickly, and is OPAQUE, and sooo crisp! I really don’t know what else you need… Ok, I’m done gushing…for now. 🙂
This card was inspired by my cat. An awesome, adorable orange tabby named O’Malley. If you first looked at the picture of this card and noticed the sentiment “happiness is…” and your answer was orange tabbies; that is the right answer, of course, lol! I made this card in a monochromatic style by inking spots of yellow and orange Memento inks, then added a layer of Orange Zest StazOn Studio Glaze. The glaze covers the paper with a nice vibrant, translucent color. I find that it unifies the background nicely. Perfect for my unified looking orange cats card.
Skill: Intermediate Time: 30 minutes
Ink random spots of the Dandelion then the Cantaloupe Memento inks with the Inkblusher.
Ink random spots of Tangelo then Lady Bug Memento inks with the Inkblusher.
Squeeze a line of the Orange Zest StazOn Studio Glaze. Using a plastic scraper or an old credit scrape the glaze across the paper.
After painting and inking the background, stamp the sentiment; cut to the desired size and assemble card.
For today’s card, I heat embossed a few images with white embossing powder and added color by rubbing the VersaMagic and Brilliance Dewdrop inks directly on them. The embossing created a resist and it was super duper quick to have colored elements ready for the card. I heat embossed sentiment on vellum and also created a wooden plank background using Versafine Clair ink. This was a quick card to create and you can do similar cards for your friends and family for any occasion.
