Hi everyone, it’s Jessica here. Can you believe that it’s almost October? I felt like this year went by so fast! I thought I would start making Christmas cards earlier this year, and I wanted to create some “punny” cards. I remember when I first started cardmaking, I loved to make cards with puns or inside jokes because those were so different from store-bought cards. Do you like cards with puns? I would love to know!
Hi everyone, it’s Jessica here. Today I have a very simple technique that I’d like to share with you. It’s ombre stamping with a stamp positioning tool! It is super easy and fun, and the color combinations are endless! I’ve used this technique so many times before and it never gets old. Have you tried creating your own ombre ink pad looks before?
Hi everyone, it’s Jessica here and welcome back to another card tutorial. Today’s card is the kind that I create the most: birthday cards! I chose a soft color palette for this set of cards, and the VersaMagic inks are perfect for the pastel colors. I also watercolored with my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens and shared a technique about using ribbons to embellish your projects. I hope you’ll enjoy today’s tutorial!
Hi everyone, today I am showing you how I swatch out my favorite ink colors for my handmade Christmas cards. I usually choose the classic reds and greens for the holidays and then add some additional colors like a brown/green and purple/red color to compliment. These additional colors I used for stamping images like twigs and berries or shading tones. Another feature in this video, I show how these water-based inks can easily be used for watercolor effects. Each time I stamp with a color, I also lift the color with a paintbrush and color to create a soft finish.
These amazing Color Combo stamp & die sets from Waffle Flower Crafts are amazing and I can’t wait to get started on creating color swatches for all my ink pad families. Swatching colors helps generate more crafting ideas and helps you imagine how colors can be used together.
