Use Rose Gold Ink to Color a Beautiful Floral Pattern

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello dear friends! Today, I have a very special card that I made just using the new All-Purpose Ink in Rose Gold from Tsukineko. All-Purpose ink comes in a variety of colors including metallics which is perfect for this project. Rose Gold is a trending color and can easily use it in all my creations and thanks to Imagine we have many options to use. Take a look at my card:

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

To create my card, I used whisper white card stock, embossing powder and VersaMark ink. I stamped the flowers over whisper white card stock too using VersaMark and White Embossing Powder. I melted the powder with the heat tool and then started my painted or coloring process with All-Purpose Ink Rose Gold.


Step 2

To color the flowers I used a paintbrush but you can also use Fantastix to have the same result. I cut my card in regular size but after finish it, I changed my mind and decided to reduce the width of the card and show off some of the flowers that I used. After coloring the flowers and leaves, I cut all of them with my scissors and arranged them on the left side of the card. During this process, I changed my mind on how I used some parts of the flowers on the left side.


Step 3

To have the card on normal size, I just cut the right side border about 3/4″ of an inch. I pasted all the flowers with double-sided foam tape and added white sequins with On Point Glue. To finalize the card, I stamped with Memento Paris Dusk a Spanish sentiment from the stamp set Vive Ama Sueña from Latina Crafter. Simple, easy and beautiful!

Create A Song Bird Theme Card For Valentines Day

by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou

Create A Song Bird Theme Card For Valentines Day

Using Imagine’ s Craft Mat, I made a mirror image of the stamp as I wanted to create a background with a repetitive pattern on it. Having a stamp design with one only way to stamp, the Craft Mat kept the VersaFine Clair ink long enough to place the cardstock and capture the stamped image at the reverse direction. The same technique can be used on various materials such as fabric and wood. It could also work well on transparent sheets when you need both side stamped image.

Skill: beginner
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Mark on the craft mat an outline of the cardstock size with a pencil to use a guideline to align your stamps. For this project, a 4 x 6 cardstock cutting is used.


Step 2

Stamp the birds on the Craft Mat using the Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink pad inside the guidelines. Press the cardstock piece on the craft mat and inside the guidelines.


Step 3

Stamp to cover the rest of card piece to create the repetitive pattern.


Step 4

Set the stamped cardstock piece on the front of a card 5 x 7 inch with Tear It! Tape.


Step 5

Add color details on the flowers with the Fabrico marker in Red Brick.


Step 6

On a piece of white cardstock, stamp with VersaMark the love word, cover with Imagine’ s red embossing powder and heat set. Distress the edges of the paper.


Step 7

Use lightweight clay and the rubber mold to make a feather and when dries whitening it further with All-Purpose Ink in White.


Step 8

Place two side to side layers of Tear It! Tape to match the size of the ribbon and glue the chevron ribbon on the card.


Step 9

Continue with the Tear It! Tape to set the word “love” on top of the ribbon.


Step 10

Add rhinestones with the On Point Glue on the flowers.

Use VersaMagic and Brilliance Ink to Quickly Color a Card

by Arjita Sepaha Singh

For today’s card, I heat embossed a few images with white embossing powder and added color by rubbing the VersaMagic and Brilliance Dewdrop inks directly on them. The embossing created a resist and it was super duper quick to have colored elements ready for the card. I heat embossed sentiment on vellum and also created a wooden plank background using Versafine Clair ink. This was a quick card to create and you can do similar cards for your friends and family for any occasion.
