How To Create A Dewlet Shape Flower Centerpiece In A Scrap Layout

With the new Dewlet die-cut making cute little elements using your Dew Drop ink pads have just become so much easier. I have always loved cutting them out to make flower petals, but now the job is so much easier thanks to this little cutie. There is a world of possibility with this clever die-cut just imagine all the effects you can create.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Use your VersaMagic Dew Drop in Night Sky and stamp directly onto a smooth piece of white cardstock. Leave to dry or heat set using a heat gun.


Step 2

Use Brilliance Dew Drop in Starlight Silver and stamp directly over the first VersaMagic Dew Drop stamped shape.


Step 3

While the Brilliance ink is still wet sprinkle with Embossing Powder in Clear. Shake off the excess and return to the container. Heat set using a heat gun until fully melted.


Step 4

Use your Dewlet die cut shape and cut out the embossed shapes on your die-cutting machine.


Step 5

I used my Dewlet shapes on my layout to create a beautiful flower element rising out from above the photo matt. These Dewlet shapes are perfect as flower petals but can be used for so much more.


Step 6

Use Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Summer Sky to adds light blue splats to the background as well as Walnut Ink Crystals.

I decided to paint some of the rhinestones with the StazOn ink in Blue Hawaii
Step 4

I have to admit I wanted to add blue and clear rhinestones to the tree to make it look like ornaments. However, I did not have blue rhinestones. So I decided to paint some of the rhinestones with the StazOn ink in Blue Hawaii. StazOn is permanent ink and it won’t rub off.

Adhere the rhinestones with On Point Glue
Step 5

Adhere the rhinestones with On Point Glue. Stamp the sentiment and mount to the card base.

Create a Glittery Snowflake on Glowing Red Background

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

For today’s card, I used the Sparkle Embossing Powder to create the beautiful snowflake on a bright red cardstock. I used VersaMark Embossing Ink to stamp the snowflake. Once the embossing powder was melted I blended some red inks with a sponge dauber around the edges of the card. This adds a beautiful glow to the card and I finished the card with a sentiment in black. This is a perfect project to be mass-produced for your Christmas cards.

Learn How to Create Foil Paper Christmas Ornaments

Learn How to Create Foil Paper Christmas Ornaments

Oh My….Gingerbread! That is the color of the month for November 2018 here at Imagine. Gingerbread is not only one of my favorite holiday treats but it is also one of my favorite colors. I have paired it with another of my holiday favorites…handcrafted ornaments! These star ornaments are so elegant looking on the tree and by making them with Rinea Foiled Papers they add loads of extra sparkle and shine to the mix.

Skill: Intermediate to Advanced
Time: 1 hour per ornament

Directions


Step 1

Cut copy weight white paper 4.75” x 4.75”; cut the square into triangles as shown.


Step 2

Cut Mocha/Mocha Starstruck Foiled Paper into 5” squares then into triangles. Note: You will need 9-10 triangles per ornament.


Step 3

Stamp each triangle with a variety of ornament peg stamps using VersaMagic Gingerbread and VersaFine Clair Acorn inks. Sponge edges with Dark Brown Shimmer Delicata ink.


Step 4

Mount each stamped triangle onto each foiled paper triangle. Roll one side point and affix it to the center point; roll the other point around the side to form a cone. Affix with your favorite adhesive. Repeat until you have 9-10 cones.


Step 5

Die-cut a circle from chipboard and one from gold foiled paper. Trim a 10” piece of stretch cord per ornament.


Step 6

Punch a hole in the chipboard circle. Adhere to 8-10 cones around the circle.


Step 7

Once all the cones are attached or glued down, insert a decorative brad in the center of the ornament to cover the tips of the cones.


Step 8

Cover the back of the ornament with the gold foiled paper circle (to hide the brad); affix the stretch cord hanger. In the photo above, you can see that I have used a different color scheme.


Step 9

Here I have made two versions of the same ornament one is using 10 cones in multiple colors and the other is 9 cones in gingerbread. Above is a comparison of the different looks. The 9 cone ornament is much wider/flatter look to it while the 10 cone ornament is more rounded with the original cone shape still intact. Both beautiful in their own way.

Directions


Step 1

On your Craft Mat mix a small amount of glossy texture paste and Delicata Golden Glitz inker.

With a palette knife, apply the colored paste to some white cardstock and leave to dry. A nice thin layer is all you need – add as much texture and dimension as you want.


Step 3

Once the texture paste is dry, use VersaMagic Gingerbread and color the entire piece of cardstock. Blend the ink over the texture paste, then cut a strip about 3cm wide and the length of you tag.


Step 4

Stamps some Christmas baubles (or ornaments) in VersaFine Clair Nocturne.


Step 5

Use a small paintbrush and VersaMagic Gingerbread to add color to your stamped baubles (ornaments). Add ink to your Craft Mat, mist with water and pick up the color to paint your images.


Step 6

Use the direct to paper technique to color half of the length of your manilla tag using the VersaMagic ink pad.


Step 7

Add irRESISTible Pico embellisher in Shimmer and Desert Sand to your baubles (ornaments) and leave to dry.


Step 8

Use VersaFine Clair and a sentiment stamp, and stamp repeatedly down the colored side of the tag.


Step 9

Adhere the paper strip down the left side of the tag and add decorative sewing. Adhere the colored baubles (ornaments) using foam tape for dimension. Adhere one bauble (ornament) flat and cut off overlapping side. Add diamanté and other flourishes to finish it up.
