by Nadine Carlier

Bee Kind Card by Nadine Carlier Imagine Crafts. StazOn in Jet Black ink

Mixed media cards do not always have to be bulky. I used several different techniques and mediums like Fireworks! Spray, irRESIStible Pico Embellishers and StazOn Ink on my card, yet the card is still flat enough to put in an envelope and mail to a friend.  Watch my video below to see how I did it.  Enjoy!

Watch a Video on Watercoloring with Memento Markers and VersaFine Clair!

Pets are the best! It is often that a dog or a cat is not simply a dog or cat but a member of the family. In today’s tutorial, I create a card with a pet theme using Memento Markers, VersaFine Clair, and clear embossing powder. The combination of these three craft items and the pet imagery really makes a gorgeous and simple creation. Memento Markers are versatile water-based markers so you can watercolor with them, add fine detail and create stunning backgrounds. Join me as I show you how.

Create a Mixed Media Look with All Purpose Ink and Joy Clair Stamps

Today, I am creating a gorgeous card using an ink dripping technique with All-Purpose Ink. By simply dripping color onto watercolor paper with an eye dropper, you can create a gorgeous bold marble appearance. The colors are vibrant and maintain a separateness that gives a mixed media background. When this technique is paired with a gorgeous JoyClair Stamp background the outcome is divine.

See How to Use Embossing Powder to Create Mermaid Scales Joy Clair Stamps and VersaMagic DewDrops

In this video, I share a different way to use embossing powder and Joy Clair Stamps to create a beautiful mermaid scales background for this card. Start by embossing a piece of cardstock 5 times. Yes, that is right–5 times. This heavy use of embossing powder creates a thick fish scale look and feel. I love using craft products in new ways, always pushing the boundaries and this is surely an example of that.
