  • Summer Fruit

    summer_fruit

     

    Turn your plain white note card into a patterned one with Flora and Fauna's thin stripe stencil. We positioned it so the stripes are diagonal used the new picket fence  blender brushes and copper twig fresh ink. Have you ever noticed how once you start using a certain color you like, you can't stop? That's how we are with copper twig this summer. It's a great subtle warm color, especially for backgrounds like this.

    Now cut some circles for your fruit. It's amazing how useful circle dies can be! They're a basic set of dies everyone should own. To make the seeds diecut Impress' rain die in black  and white cardstock and glue to your fruit. Cut a strip of white paper to create a tag embellishment. Stamp a pink background from Flora and Fauna's brush birthday clear stamp set and then the words for you. Add an eyelet to the tag, we use a crop a dile to set them and then tie the tag to the card with natural string

     

  • THANKS so much!

    THANKS so much!

    Shaker cards take a little longer to make but they always delight the recipient.

    Start with a white side folded notecard. Cut a white panel that's the size of the folded notecard and diecut the word Thanks on it using Flora and Fauna's Thanks die. On the front side of the panel, add a small banner that has the words "so much" from the Everyday Word Party 2 clear set stamped on it. On the back side of the panel tape a piece of Judikins' clear window plastic to cover the holes in the card. Then add a thin border of double stick mounting tape in a rectangle shape around the word, this will create a pocket for the confetti. We made our confetti by cutting a few thin strips of colored cardstock into tiny pieces. After sprinkling the confetti behind the letters, add a bit of Impress sparkle glitter. Attach mounting tape around the outside edge of the panel. Remove the protective paper on all the double stick tape and lay the base card down on the backside of the panel lining up the edges. Add small dots of Nuvo crystal drops to the front of the card. Let dry your shaker card is ready!

  • Floral Thanks

    thanks_floral

    One of our most popular clear stamp sets this summer is Flora and Fauna's summer snail. When I saw this pretty card in the store, I knew it was one I wanted to share with you.

    Start by stamping the flowers on your white note card. You can stamp the greeting too. When stamping in black, we prefer Versafine CLAIR Nocturne. It's the blackest black ink we have and gives great coverage. Now for the fun part, adding color. Pick three of your favorite colors of FRESH ink. We used celery, pink lemonade and mango. Use the medium squarish brush stroke from Flora and Fauna's Texture 9 set to stamp the colors, making sure you overlap the image just a little and you're done! This is one of those cards where the recipient will say "you made this!" and they'll never realize how easy it was and that you created it so fast. No gluing, layering or diecutting involved.

    Have fun creating your own border of flowers!

  • Love, love, love summertime!

    summertime

    Here's a summer card that uses the beautiful pearlescent watercolor set.  Notice how the die cut words stand out a bit from the surface. Adhere a piece of black cardstock onto deco foil foam adhesive and then die cut. Cut the die a second time out of white paper and then glue the two die cuts together offsetting them just a little.

    This striped rose stamp is a new one at Impress. If you'd like to make this card, here's how to do it.

    Start by stamping the flower on smooth white cardstock with your versamark pad and then emboss with white powder. Now comes the fun part, adding color. We just got in a new watercolor set has a really pretty assortment of pearlescent colors in it. We think you'll love it and the price too. The set is only $6.50. After painting, cut out the flowers with your detail scissors. Stamp the background with another Impress stamp called shaded leaves.

  • Roses are black and white . . . .

    540_twine

    Impress has new floral themed wood stamps! We love when we have new images to design with. Flower images are fun to color but they also look great left black and white, especially when they have nice line quality. Here's how to make this simple but elegant card.

    Stamp the rose cluster on a piece of smooth white cardstock that's just a little smaller than your base card using a really black ink pad called nocturne. It's the blackest pad out there and stamps with great detail.  Add tiny rose gold dots with a rose gold felt pen. The tip on this pen is firm so you can easily create nice small dots with it. We embellish with this pen often as it adds a subtle hint of color to a card design.  Wrap the card a few times with rose colored jute string. We added a piece of tape to the back side to keep the string in place when the card is assembled. Mount this panel to the base card using mounting tape so it sticks out just a little. Stamp your favorite greeting inside, one of our favorite new ones is hello, beautiful!

    adventure

    Impress has a new release of wood stamps! We love when we have new images to design with. The floral images are designed by Nina Painter. We're loving her style. Check out the new images.

    We used the succulent shelf image for this card. Stamp it on a white note card using our favorite really black pad called nocturne. It's the blackest pad out there and you'll love the coverage too.  It's a Versafine Clair ink pad. These pads bring out the finest details. Watercolor the succulents with your favorite paints. Stamp the lines in Flora and Fauna's texture set 4 to make the lines on the bottom of the card using Fresh ink aloe. To make the fun bright colored pots for the succulents, stamp the same image on colored card stock and then cut out each pot with your detail scissors.  It's important to use a detail scissors as the fine blades makes it much easier to cut closely to the lines. Once cut out, glue the pots over the appropriate pots on your card.  Choose your own adventure is a new Impress word stamp. We think it's a great sentiment for anyone about to embark on a new adventure!

  • Easter is on it's way!

    easter_bunny-project

    Are you ready for Easter? We have lots of ideas at Impress to make this holiday celebration special.  Our little clear carrot boxes are an Impress staple this time of year. How cute they look when filled with orange candy. We added a couple of green ribbons to finish off the treat. Surprise your workers or neighbors and you'll make their day.

    Here's how to make the card. Start with a white note card and then stencil it using Flora and Fauna's mini dot stencil, melon Fresh Ink and a dauber. Cut the Jumping Bunny Circle die out of white card stock and then again out of pink. Piece together so it's pink and white. The Happy Easter die is also a Memory Box die. We cut that out of a mustard yellow paper. We're loving that color combination this spring. Have you tried the diecut'n bond yet? It works great for adhering intricate dies. It's a wide roll of double-sided adhesive tape. It's paper thin and easy to use. Apply to paper or card stock before die- cutting a shape. Once cut, peel off protective backing and place shape on a project where desired.

    Thanks for checking out our project of the week.

  • Look what's blooming!

    watercolor_flowers

    Create beautiful and unique floral cards with just one clear stamp set! How fun. To make cards like this you simply need Flora and Fauna's clear set called Brush Petal and your favorite colors of Fresh Ink. Some of the Fresh ink colors used for these cards were blush, sugar, pink lemonade and persimmon.  Start by stamping the larger petals first, then add petals on top. On two of the cards we applied watercolor paint directly to the stamp and then stamped it on the card stock. Can you tell which cards? We loved the different look and interest it created.

    Have fun creating a garden of your own! Thanks for checking out our project of the week.
