Fireworks! spray provides an easy way to turn simple white papers into vibrant, colorful backgrounds for card projects. When working on one-layer projects, the stamped image needs to be protected with a mask to avoid the wet ink getting on the main image. For this technique, no special supplies are needed as the masks are created using cheap masking tape and baking paper or wax paper. This technique can be used for various projects; ATC’s, standard sized cards, scrapbook layouts, and art journal pages.
'Hope for a great year' is always a great sentiment in the month of January. Tenia Nelson from Jazzy Paper Designs creates this super fun card that can be sent to loved ones for encouragement and hope!
This project was inspired by some gorgeous wire, metal, and glass lanterns we spotted in a shop last year. They were not for sale (more’s the pity), but that never stops a crafter—at least not for long! With some paper maché houses and the help of shimmery Delicata inks, these holiday houses have a perfect patina of aged metal.
I realize that I have more bird, and bird related stamps than I care to admit, so I decided to literally pick 2 stamps at random and make something – it was really hard since I have an amazing collection to choose from. But it also inspired me to get creative and to actually use ones that have not seen the light of day in a while. I wanted to create some fun textures and so pulled out one of my new Kaleidacolor inkpads to play with along with some Creative Medium for some fun textured effects.
Halloween party in your near future? No idea what you’re going to wear? No problem – grab a couple bottles of StazOn Studio Glaze, a bit of tulle and you’re in business. You can be the belle of the ball – or in this case Spiderella of the ball. Create your very own one of a kind mask and wow all of the spooks on All Hallows Eve.
Remember scratch & sniff stickers? Nadine Carlier shows you how to create your own using embossing powder.
I had this picture of my two boys and me on my craft table since Mother’s Day. They both gave me handmade cards, which brought tears to my eyes because they know me so well ♥ I wanted to store those cards somewhere on the layout. Therefore I used a white paper bag at the bottom of all the layers.
I like to think outside the so-called box. Anyone can work on a puzzle—but a wearable puzzle, now that’s a challenge. So here you have a fun, colorful way to wear a puzzle and look stunning while you do.
Sometimes I feel a certain amount of pressure to have my hands in every little facet of every single project, but I only have two hands and 24 hours in a day–something’s gotta give! I’m willing to bet you can empathize. So when I can’t handcraft each and every piece of party stationery to my liking, I at least like to do some strategic embellishments and updates to custom-printed or store-bought stationery. For an upcoming birthday luau, Radiant Neon Amplify! was just the ticket to add a little texture and dimension to our invitations, thank you cards, and buffet signs.
