You Are So Sweet Card with Imagine

I love having lots of thank you cards on hand! I wanted to create a card that was on the simple side but with lots of interest. Not sure if I accomplished what I set out to do but I still had a lot of fun creating this card with lots of products from Imagine.

Check out my tutorial video below to see how I created this card.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get updates when I post a new video.

I created an ombre effect with the "So Sweet" sentiment with Kaleidacolor Ink.
Kaleidacolor is a multicolor dye inkpad. It provides a continuous, multi-colored inking surface when clicked together but is recommended to slide apart when storing.

The Delicata White Shimmer stamped on some vellum gave the perfect amount of interest onto the vellum without making it overbearing.

Look at all that gorgeous shimmer that the Fireworks! Spray adds to the card!

Gray Skies Are Gonna Clear Up

Hello, everyone! Today I have another card using a stamp set from the Brutus Monroe March release. I used the Be Unique stamp set.

For the blue background, I rubbed some Cornflower Surface Ink onto my craft mat and mixed some water into it so I could create a watercolor to paint onto a piece of Alabaster Cardstock. I made it darker towards the bottom and made it lighter towards the top. I repeated the same process for the gray background using the Sidewalk Surface Ink.
Once the backgrounds were dry, I sprayed some Squeaky Clean over them and used a heat tool to activate it. This gave the speckly like background. On the blue piece that I freehand cut into a window shape, I unscrewed the top off the Squeaky Clean and flicked some larger drops of it on the blue piece and used my heat tool again.

I stamped the girl bunny from the Be Unique stamp set and several of the clouds on the Alabaster Cardstock with Raven Detail Ink. Colored the bunny image in with some Leisure Arts Colored Pencils and fussy cut out the bunny and clouds. Adhered the blue background piece to the gray piece and adhered them both to a card base. Used some Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares to attached the clouds and bunny.
Then on the bottom of my card, I stamped the sentiment from the Be Unique stamp set with Raven Detail Ink and my card was done and ready to be sent off to cheer someone up. :)
