Learn How to Use Inkers to Create Texture in a DIY Card

This month Imagine is celebrating terrific shades of teal and there are quite a few beautiful inks to bring to this party. I love teal and some of my favorite inks include a bit of shimmery goodness in them too. Let’s take a look at how to use these amazing colors with some unique techniques that include plastic wrap, texture paste and sewing to create a fun floral themed card.

Bless Our Nest

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.

Happy Together

When I had these neon colors in my hands I couldn't resist the idea to create something fun and happy. In today's project I used the Amplifly over stencil to create design and texture, and Kaleidacolor ink to make a smooched water coloring for my background.  Come and see how I create these fun techniques for our Poetry Challenge.


Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

I suffer from a nearly lifelong love of poetry. Okay, the suffering? Not so much. The thing I love about poetry is that a single, simple well­turned phrase can take me someplace far away. Such is the case with much of the poetry by Robert Frost, but especially with his poem, “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening”.

You're Super Old...And Cute!

New Year's for me is when you start a new year of life, a new opportunity, a new calendar or simply when you want to celebrate something new.  Today I created a special card for our New Year's Inspiration Challenge. It is a birthday card to celebrate a new year of life and on this card I am using fun techniques to create backgrounds, coloring stamped images and create textures over different materials. Come and enjoy with me!

Harvest Cornucopia Thanksgiving Card

Thanksgiving is a lovely time of year spent with family and friends but it’s also time to give thanks for the bounty of the harvest for the year. My family operates a small farm in Indiana and as farmers we like to take a moment to thank God for all that we have been able to grow and harvest during the year and pray for a favorable crop next year.  Here’s to all of the farmers that make a bountiful Thanksgiving possible…Thanks for all your hard work.

Ombre Butterfly Wash

Bringing Ombre into this century can't be any easier - simply grab your Kaleidacolor ink pads. I remember getting my very first Kaleidacolor ink pad some 15 years ago - yes you heard me that long ago - its the same one used here today and I am as much in love today as then, but realized that I don't use them often enough though. I love the rainbow colors and the possibilities these ink pads offer. Lets explore...
