Blog Hop Magenta and Imagine Crafts Sept 17th


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.    

Here a sneak peak of the card I have created

Step by step instructions

This is the final result. In the below steps you will find out how it's created and finally a larger picture of the card.

Spritz the 3 colors of Fireworks (Dandelion, Tangelo, Lady Bug) onto your background paper and let the colors flow onto the background. 

The colors are so vibrant and full of shimmer!

Let it dry
Ink the Georgia O'Keefe quote stamp with the 3 memento colors (Dandelion, Tangelo, Lady Bug) and stamp it randomly on the background
Spritz some white irRESSISTible ink (wedding dress) on your craftsheet and ink up your Magenta bubble wrap stamp with it and randomly stamp it on your background. Let it dry completely!

The irRESSISTible ink is a texture ink, so it will give extra dimension to your project. Just love it!

Stamp the Magenta butterfly with Versamark and heat set it with white embossing powder
Add some Memento Dandelion and Tangelo directly on your craftsheet and spritz some water on it.
Pull your butterfly image thru the ink. 
Spritz some Shimmer Frost onto your butterfly, let it dry completely before you cut out the butterfly.
Sponge some extra Memento Lady Bug on the edges of your background and butterfly to make it pop up more.

Sponge some extra Memento Dandelion round the buble stamp image, this will pop up the texture of the irRESSISTible. Remove the excess of ink on the texture ink with a damp cloth.

Stamp the Happy Birthday text with Memento Lady Bug onto a piece of white cardstock

Now you can assemble everything into a card. I have used a basic white card.
I finished the card with a hand drawn doodle line around the edges with a Sharpie pen.

And this is the final result

I just love the vibrant colors of the Fireworks and it also has lots of shimmer in it. The texture in the irRESISTible spray is just awesome.
