Handmade greeting card featuring a plaid background made using VersaMagic Inks on kraft cardstock.

Plaid Pattern Background with VersaMagic Inks

To highlight the the versatile properties of the creamy and blendable chalk-finish ink called VersaMagic, I will show you how to make this cute plaid pattern background. The pigment ink shows up brilliantly on the kraft cardstock, but matches it's matte tone. This ink is beautifully thick and shows on darker cardstocks too.

Handmade card featuring floral images including tone on tone stamping done with VersaMark Dazzle ink.

Shimmery Tone-on-Tone Florals

In this video I'll share how you can stretch the use of your VersaMark ink pads and create easy backgrounds with them. Even though VersaMark is generally used for heat embossing, it's also a great ink for tone-on-tone or monochrome stamping. Let me know if you'd like to try this easy, minimal supply technique, and are interested in seeing more of these tutorials.

Mixed Media statement piece with a quote, made by upcyclcing a piece of packaging.

Upcycled Mixed Media Statement Piece

The inspiration for this piece was the quote I included on the canvas. I am forever on the lookout for inspiring and uplifting quotes. Things that make you think, or give you the push you need to move forward. I really also love working with upcycled materials. We don't need more trash in the landfills, right?! I knew that my Imagine mixed media products would work wonders to make this piece come alive! When i'm working with resin pieces, I always reach for my Fireworks sprays and All-Purpose Ink. They both cover beautifully. This quote on the canvas is very near to my heart and all of the elements came together perfectly to give it a home.

Handmade red valentine card featuring embossed and inked hearts.

Eclectic Valentine's Day Card

I have always considered myself as an eclectic type crafter and this card is the perfect representation of my style. It has a little bit of modern, vintage and grunge mixed together using several different techniques and products. Watch my video below to see how I did it. Enjoy!

Handmade valentine card veaturing a cute gold frame

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 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 card featuring a monochromatic look made with karft cardstock and copper inks and embossing powders.

Monochromatic Christmas Card

Creating a monochromatic card was easy when using some Delicata Celestial Copper and Copper Embossing powder. Watch my video below to see exactly how I did it.

Handmade paper gingerbread garland made with StazOn Studio Glaze from Tsukineko

Gingerbread House Garland

Die cuts and a few choice supplies combine to create this darling little gingerbread house garland. Not only is it perfect for the holidays, it’s an ideal craft to let kids help decorate (after the embossing is done!) and it would also look super sweet at a fairy tale themed event—think Hansel and Gretel and the witch’s house in the woods. A fun technique used in this project is layering the StazOn Studio Glaze while still wet. Drawing the tip of the Claret StazOn Studio Glaze bottle over the Cotton White made for near-seamless candy cane stripes once dried. Also, I’ve found it helps to be very generous with the Cotton White, especially on darker papers or backgrounds, if you want it to retain some opacity.

Handmade Christmas card featuring an Owl in a wreath.

Quick and Easy Owl Christmas Card

Stamping over Delicata Inks with another ink like VersaFine Clair or Memento Inks creates such a cool shimmery effect.
Watch my video below to see exactly what I mean.  Enjoy!

 

Handmade christmas cards made using simple shapes cut out and adding fun decorations to complete the looks.

Using Simple Shapes to Make Holiday Cards

There are so many cute and fun stamps and dies on the market these days for the holidays that it’s truly tough to resist them. I don’t know about you but there’s only so much room in the budget and the stamp storage to go around, so I’m always happy to come up with ways to use the things I already have and getting more mileage out of my tools and supplies. To that end, these cards use patterned stamps that are not holiday-specific and simple shapes you can cut with basic dies, punches, or even just scissors. These simple shape cards are also perfect for crafting with kids in preparation for the holidays!
