Handmade gift tag featuring a dragonfly and flowers in Rose Gold color.

Rose Gold Dragonfly and Floral Gift Tag

I have limited space for craft supplies and am always looking for ways to get multiple uses out of a single supply. One way to accomplish this, for example, is to keep a stash of white paper flowers in different sizes and color them to match your project.  This way, you don’t have to make room for multiple packages of pre-colored flowers. See how I create a Rose Gold Dragonfly theme gift tag using several of Imagine's and Tsukineko's inks.

Handmade greeting card with shiny two-toned lips using Memento and Brilliance inks.

Two-tone Stamping with Shine

I love to create backgrounds for my cards and using fun techniques to add more interest. To make this fun love card today I used not only a really fun multi-color stamping technique but also, a SHINY INK PAD!! The Brilliance Pearlescent Coral ink pad was perfect for stamping this background and adding some shine for even more interest on this CAS card!

Brillance Pearlescent Coral was the perfect ink for the delicate flowers on my CAS layered card. Watch my video below to see how easy it was to create. Enjoy!

 

Handmade card featuring a blended night sky background and a London skyline silhouette cut out.

London Night Sky Birthday Card

Today I share with you how to create a Galaxy or night sky using VersaMagic Ink, Brilliance Ink, and MementoLuxe. These creamy inks blend so smoothly and seamlessly that anyone can create a gorgeous night sky. The addition of Sheer Shimmer Spray and white acrylic paint finish this creation. Please join me as I teach you how to create a wonderful Galaxy card.

Handmade card featuring a winter tree scene in a mason jar shape.

Scene in a Jar Greeting Card

I heat embossed few images with white embossing powder and added color by rubbing the Dewdrop Ink pad 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 a 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 Christmas or other winter time holidays.

Handmade mixed media style autumn themed card

Metallic and Distressed Autumnal Greeting Card

I love making mixed media cards! It is a smaller canvas to work with and you can experiment with different products together. Imagine always has just the right tools for this beautiful copper metallic and golden-hued theme! For November, Imagine is working with Rinea papers and I am having so much fun experimenting with how they emboss and handle ink products! I used the Walnut spray and Creative Medium on the Rinea paper and made a beautiful fall card.

Beautiful brown hues on a homemade card acheived by watercoloring with Walnut Ink Crystals.

Walnut Ink Crystal Florals

I stamped a beautiful flower bunch from Simon Says Stamp with Brilliance Ink on a watercolor paper. I added some water on a small scoop of Walnut Crystals and painted the entire bunch with it. This is a monotonic theme card and I have used only one pigment to create all the highlights and shadows. I stamped a simple sentiment with Pinecone Versafine Clair ink and the painted panel is ready.

Two spring themed handmade greeting cards featuring rainboot images.

Rainboots Themed "Happy Spring" Card

VersaMagic inks have a longer drying time so they are perfect to use with stencils where you can use multiple colors, and even blend them if desired. I love to use stencils, but I really don't like to waste the ink that is left on them. Rather than clean the stencil, I like to lightly spritz the inked side of the stencil, flip it over, and place it on the second piece of cardstock creating a watercolored panel. See how I created two cards with the same stencil!

A simple and elegant shabby chic wedding table setting including a napkin ring, menu card holder, cutlery placeholder and glass coasters all with a white doily theme.

Simple, Elegant and Inexpensive Wedding Table Setting

Planning to make wedding table decorations? I've planned out an idea for this that is based on easy-to-find supplies, not requiring crafting machines or things that would be difficult to use after this project is complete. I also was interested in it being easy to prepare but still elegant. By creating several easy-to-make matching pieces, the cost of the basic crafting supplies is still quite low per setting.

Using the kraft cardstock as the background, you have the option to play with more color choices on the embossing powder or the dyed flowers with the Fireworks! Simmery Craft Sprays. I estimate of the cost for 100 place-settings is about $150. One A3 kraft page makes an entire setting.

A gorgeaus floral teal card made using brilliance and ultimate metallic inkers from Tsukineko as well as cute embellishements like sewing and a button.

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.
