Blog Hop Magenta and Imagine Crafts Sept 20th


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.      

I had another chance to play with the fabulous inks of Imagine Craft and the beautiful Magenta stamps and have created a Christmas card:

How to instructions:

  1. Add Memento ink (Bahama blue, Teal zeal, Nautical blue) directly on your craftsheet and spritz it with some water. Pull thru your watercolor white background paper and let the colors blend even more by spritzing some extra water on your paper. Dry this with your heatgun.

  2. Stamp the Merry Christmas multilingual text with Versamark and heatset it with white embossing powder.

  3. Place the Snowflake stencil on your background and sponge the large snowflakes with Delicata Silvery Shimmer randomly on your background.

  4. Add some Versamark on to the edges of the card and apply white embossing powder and heatset it.

  5. Assemble your card by matting it on darkblue cardstock and adhere it to a white base card.

Used materials:
Imagine Craft:
Memento ink (
Bahama blue, Teal zeal, Nautical blue), Versamark, white embossing powder, Delicata ink Silvery Shimmer

Merry Christmas - Multilingual (07.883.K) stamp
Snowflakes - MC05 stencil
