Create a Valentines’ day card with a mixed media feel and matching washi tape that you make yourself in a few easy steps using your Imagine Craft Mat. Add interest with inks and textures layered to create interest.
Time: 1 hour
Spray a piece of white cardstock with Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Lady Bug and leave to dry.
Use the direct-to-paper method and ink the remainder of the pane using Lady Bug and Lilac Posies Memento DewDrop inkpads.
Use sponge daubers with ink to create a bokeh effect to the background. First, add red inked circles using Memento Luxe in Love Letter and then add white Brilliance circles over the top and slightly off-set for a fun effect.
To create your own matching washi tape, adhere a strip of masking tape to your Craft Mat.
Use Memento DewDrop ink pads to add color to the masking tape strip.
Use VersaFine Clair in Morning Mist and a texture stamp to add script stamping to the tape. Leave the ink to dry before adhering the tape to your card.
Carefully peel the masking tape off of your Craft Mat and adhere the washi tape to your card panel.
Emboss the panel using a love-themed or Valentine’s Day themed embossing folder. Add a layered die-cut heart with a silver leafed heart on top. Finish off your card with ink splats and diamanté for a mixed media look and feel.

When you have the new ink pads of VersaFine Clair in your hands you want to use all the colors at the same time. These colors are brilliant and give you the opportunity to stamp your images and layer them until you create your perfect design. For today’s project, I created an “I Love You” Valentine’s Day card with a lovely fern and peacock feathers theme.
Time: 30 minutes
Stamp the solid images over whisper white cardstock. I used Versafine Clair Charming Pink. Let the ink dry for quite a few minutes, or speed up the process using the heat tool.
Once the base leaf layer is completely dry, stamp the detailed image over the first stamped image using VersaFine Clair Nocturne. Cover the image with clear embossing powder and melt the powder with the heat tool.
Stamp some feather images over the leaf images using another color of VersaFine Clair Ink. I used the Cheerful (Yellow) and covered it with Clear Embossing Powder to obtain a great texture over the first stamped image.
Ink another image using a Memento Marker with a clear color of the same family that you are using on your project and stamp on the white spaces.
Repeat step 3 using VersaFine Clair Purple Delight. Finalize your card with a sentiment. I stamped a sentiment over a coordinating banner using White Embossing Powder. I created two arrows using a die cut, then inked and embossed with VersaFine Clair Charming Pink and VersaFine Clair Purple Delight.
