Mixed Media Tag for Valentines

I'm always looking for different textures to include in my paper crafting projects. It's a fun challenge for me and this tag really brought some interesting textures together in a great way! I can always count on Imagine to have just the right product to bring gorgeous color to these textures. Fireworks spray really shines when used over a stencil textured background. You will see in this video, I add a little water and the shimmer and pigment will settle in between the shapes, giving great depth to this tag. I also really love that I can layer different colors of Fireworks spray over the top of each other. I used irRESISTible Pico Embellisher on the wire mesh texture to give it a little bit of color.  It's just thick enough to fill the holes and looks fantastic! I wanted the resin hearts to be stark white and stand out so I used All-Purpose Ink in White, which provided great coverage and opacity. Watch my video today and like and share if you enjoy it!

Layered Valentine's Card with Cute Frame

I just love using Imagine products with different finishes and textures together in a mixed media card.  The background of this Valentine card has shimmer from the Fireworks spray, dimension from the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher, and shine like no other from the Goosebumps spray!  Also, All Purpose Ink is fantastic for use on resin or clay shapes.  You can paint or spray it on for really great coverage.  The sparkle and shine from the embossing powder really makes the paper frame stand out!

Handmade winter snow themed card featuring spinning snowflakes.

Snowflake Spinner Card

I adore blue and silver as a holiday color scheme (or any time of year, for that matter). I created this card with a frosted-looking inside scene (courtesy of Creative Medium mixed with VersaColor) and a fun spinner element in the front-panel frame. The Rinea foiled paper is sturdy enough to hold its shape, even when cut so delicately, making this card a real display piece for the holidays.

Penguin Mixed Media Holiday Card

Winter is right around the corner and I love when the snow covers the landscape! When I received the Frosted sampler pack of Rinea papers, I couldn't resist making a winter card with a cute penguin stamp. I didn't have white Creative Medium to make my snowflake background, so I mixed some All-Purpose Ink in the clear Creative Medium and achieved great results! I created a wintery background with Doodlestix, a Gelli Press, All-Purpose Inks, and Fireworks sprays from Imagine.

A moleskin notebook personalized with monkey images by stamping and coloring in with Tsukineko, Imagine and Gel Pen inks.

How to Personalize a Moleskine Notebook

Can you ever have too many notebooks? I think not! I love to add more to my collection (and even get around to using them sometimes) but sometimes the best quality notebooks fly under the decorative radar. This gives them all kinds of great potential on the outside, just like the blank pages are inside. For the Moleskine notebook, I’ve used Fabrico and All-Purpose inks to decorate it with some cute monkeys, designating this notebook for future cute and cheeky thoughts!
