Hello there! Today’s tutorial is to show you how easy is create texture with Memento Inks. This is a very simple process that you can create with a score lines and or embossing folders. On this card, I used Memento Ink Desert Sand, Peanut Brittle and Teal Zeal.
Gather large leaves and stamp them with your favorite stamps and StazOn inks. Protect the leaves with the Creative Medium for a long lasting result. Decorate a holiday table, make an autumn wreath, add them to gift bags or to any seasonal project.
Time: 1 Hour
Gather leaves that are not completely dry. If they are not flat enough, use paper towels, spray with water and carefully press to flatten.
Cover the leaves on both sides with Creative MEDIUM using an Ink Blusher.
Stamp with StazOn Jet Black ink and your favorite stamp.
Add some color by distressing lightly with StazOn Black Cherry ink pad.
Stamp the thank you sentiment and tear the paper on all sides to make tags.
In today’s tutorial, I will demonstrate how to use both VersaMark and Kaleidacolor ink to create a layered background for a clean and simple design fall card. VersaMark is a beautiful watermark ink especially on dark cardstock.
Trim a cream cardstock base to 8.5” x 5.5”, score and fold in half. Trim a dark brown cardstock to 4.25” x 5.5”.
Use a stamp platform and stamp the leaf images in VersaMark Dazzle Champagneon the dark brown cardstock. Any VersaMark ink will work, but there is a bit of Champagne shimmer with the Dazzle ink. With the stamps in the same position on the stamp platform, stamp in Kaleidacolor Cappuccino Delight. The Oak leaf is stamped on the darker brown end and the maple leaf is stamped on the lighter orange end of the Kaleidacolor Cappuccino Delight pad.
Continue stamping the base cardstock and dark brown cardstock. Clean stamps between the Kaleidacolor ink and VersaMark ink. It is not necessary to clean after the VersaMark ink as it will not affect the color of the Kaleidacolor ink.
Trim 0.5” from each edge of the brown cardstock.
Stamp the leaves in Kaleidacolor Cappuccino Delight. The sentiment is stamped in the darkest color of the ink pad. (I choose and another sentiment for the finished card.) Die cut the leaves and the sentiment. Edge the banner sentiment with a Brush Tip Fanstix using the orange from the Kaleidacolor Cappuccino Delight.
Line up the dark brown cardstock with the base layer. Adhere with Tear It! Tape. Adhere the oak leaves with Tear It! Tape and the maple leaf and sentiment with dimensional foam adhesive.
In today’s card making tutorial, I will show you how to create a Fall themed “Thanks” card using three different inks. The Autumn colors are vibrant and blend well with kraft card stock and burlap ribbon. I hope this card inspires you to think of all things pumpkin spice and apple cider as we head into fall!
Spritz white cardstock with Fireworks! Lady Bug, Tangelo, and Dandelion. I like to start with the darkest color first working to the lighter color to fill in the last areas of white. Set aside to dry.
Use Memento Peanut Brittle and Rich Cocoa ink pads and press directly on the cardstock. This creates a splotchy look.
Die cut the Fireworks! colored cardstock with Skeleton Leaves dies. Cut an outline to back the leaves either by hand or with an electronic die cutting machine. Adhere the layers together with On Point Glue. Small dots in the thicker areas of the leaves works best.
Die cut one “Thanks” sentiment from the Fireworks! colored cardstock and three from white cardstock. Layer together with On Point Glue to create a dimensional sentiment. To avoid glue from leaking out from between the layers, use small dots of glue on the outside edges.
Use a soft rubber brayer to ink cardstock trimmed to 4.74” x 5.75”. Kaleidacolor in Autumn Leaves was used with the green portion in the middle and the light orange on either end of the cardstock. Flip the cardstock to achieve this look.
Pressure emboss the cardstock with Basket Weave embossing folder. Use a sanding block to remove color and allow the embossed design to pop.
Using Tear It! Tape, adhere your A7 kraft card base to background. Then tape the burlap ribbon. The Tear It! Tape, it’s translucent enough that it does not show through the burlap, and will hold the card together. Adhere the “Thanks” sentiment and the leaves with On Point Glue.
