A Simple Monochromatic Card

Hey, everyone! Happy Friday! Today, I have a simple monochromatic card using just one Encore Ultimate Metallic Ink color from Imagine. I love the silvery metallic that is in the Encore inks. It is hard to see in the pictures but trust me it is there and it soooo pretty!


Here is my video on how I created this card.....


You can see the metallic a little better in the close-up photos below.  I also really love the fun IndigoBlu Butterfly Splat stamp I used.
It has been awhile since I have brought out my sewing machine to for a paper project and I forgot how much I like that look. Just wish it wasn't such a pain to find room to use it in my craft room.

Gel Press Blog Hop with DCC

Hello! This month over at Designer Crafts Connection we were sponsored by Gel Press.  I had lots of fun and made tons of printed images while trying to figure out what to create but finally decided on making a Halloween background piece for a mixed media card.  

Gel Press plates are not “gelatin”- they're way better! You have all the benefits of ‘gelatin’ printing - with no downsides! Gel Press is super durable and reusable because unlike ‘homemade’ gel- you can store your Gel Press plate at room temperature. It’s so easy to clean – it’s printmaking without the mess! Press your paper on the gel plate- lift the print and Voila! Creating a masterpiece is easy.

Watch my video below to see how I created the Harlequin background on my card.

Labor Day Card Glitter Embellishments

Hello, crafty friends! Today I have a Labor Day card with some glitter star die cuts I created using Tear It! Tape from Imagine. I pretty much have a love-hate relationship with glitter. I love the looks of it but hate how it gets everywhere.


Besides the little bit of mess that glitter makes, the Tear It! Tape works amazingly well at holding the glitter in place and minimizing the mess. To see how I created the glitter stars and the fun Labor Day card watch my video tutorial below.



Here are some close up photos of my card.
