Imagine Crafts / Tsukineko + Magenta Blog Hop

Magenta_badge 




Hi everyone and happy Monday :)

Welcome to a week of fantastic collaboration between IMAGINE Crafts and Magenta Rubber Stamps! Both companies are excited to share with you their products, from the latest inks from IMAGINE Crafts to the newest Fall and Holiday stamp releases from Magenta.      

And here is my project:




    Supplies:


Instructions:

Stamp the Magenta "Noel" image with Versamark ink on a plain white panel of cardstock and heat emboss it with Imagine Crafts white embossing powder.


Pick up some Memento inks in Love Letter with an Ink Blusher tool and also some Memento inks in Tangelo and colore the card front.
Move right over the entire area, even over the embossed image. The embossed lines act like a resist and will not get colored. 
You can go over the embossed lines with a damp cloth in the end if you want to.


"Distress" - or I better should say: color all edges of the panel with Delicata Golden Glitz ink and a Sponge Dauber.


Pick up some Delicata Golden Glitz ink with a Fanastix brush and color in the star and the bell.


Use Memento markers in Tangelo to color the inside potions of the embossed "Noel" letters. Then use the Rhubarb Stalk marker to create some shading.


Memento marker in Dandelion was used to color the swirls and all of the lighter areas in the embossed image and also to highlight the letters on the outside, to let them stand out against the red background a little better.

The potions on the image that should be white (like the braid of the hat and the melting wax on the candle), will be filled in with the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress.


To create the faux stitched border, use a ruler as a guide and poke wholes all around the panel. Then use the irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress (white) again to create the "stitches".


Cut a length of neutral (off-white) seam binding and dye it with Memento Luxe inks in Tangelo and Dandelion and the help of an Ink Blusher tool. 
Heat set it with a heat tool and let it cool, before wrapping it around the card and tieing into a bow.


Almost done... just add some enamel dots here and there and mount the layer onto the card front with foam tape.


And here is an additional close up to show you the faux stitching and some of the other details :)

You're Special - AIR project for Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts





Hi everyone and happy Friday :)

Today it's my turn again, to post on the Imagine Crafts Blog!

I created a clean and simple card without patterned paper, but only using stamps and Memento inks to create my own pattern.


I hope you like it! The complete supply list as well as step-by-step instructions are shared on the Imagine Crafts Blog! I would appreciate it if you'd take the time and visit me over there (and maybe leave me a comment, so I know what you think about it? *smile*)


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope to see you here on my blog again, soon :)

Birthday Wishes




Hi everyone and happy Thursday :)

Today, I am sharing a card, that was made for the Imagine Crafts Blog a few weeks ago!
I don't know why, but I totally forgot to post this here on my personal blog *eek*

But I think it's not too late to show it now ;-)

Therefore...here it is: A card made with the beautiful metallic "Encore" inks from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko.
These inks are adorable - especially if you use them on dark background (will share a card using Encore inks on dark background, soon :) ). But they are alsoo adorable on light backgrounds! It's just a bit difficult to catch the wonderful metallic shimmer in a picture...

You can find the step-by-step instructions on the Imagine Crafts Blog!






The stamps on this card are from Whimsy Stamps and their "new" line of stamps "Clearly Whimsy Stamps" and the stamp set is called "Happy Everything"! It is designed by my dear online crafting friend Simonne Clay! She is so incredibly talented and I am a huge fan of her card creations for many years! I am super happy, that she now has her own beautiful designs made into clear stamps :)

Please refer to the grey box below this post for a complete list of supplies and visit the Imagine Crafts Blog for step-by-step instructions

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope to see you here on my blog again, soon :)

Hello My Love for CAS(E) this Sketch #90





Hi everyone and happy Friday :)

Two days in a row with a blog post from me? Yes, it's true :-D

I had some time to play around with the new sketch from the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge blog! 
I just love the versatility of this sketch - but their sketches *always* are versatile and great to use as a starting point :)



I went a little wild with my card ;-) and instead of making a clean and simple card, I used a lot of patterned papers, inks, stickers and embellishments, today .... and had lots and lots of fun! :-)

Please refer to the grey boxes below this post for step-by-step instructions and a complete list of supplies :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope to see you here on my blog again, soon :)
