Imagine Crafts Inkpads

  • Memento Luxe Wedding Dress Pigment Inkpad      
  • Memento Luxe Love Letter Pigment Inkpad

Stencil the Mesh background with Wedding Dress and emboss it with detail white powder. 

Stamp the greeting with Love Letter and emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut the bottom with the Small Word Pop Straight Die, then trim the other sides.  Round the corners.  Attach it to the background with foam dots. 

Diecut Tinsel Ropes from red mirror cardstock. Attach them to the background - use a tiny foam dot to attach the big starburst on the right side.  Attach the deer brads – found them at Impress – they’re great with the word pop dies!  Attach light gold sequins.  Coordinate the card with a matching Juniper Envelope.

Ready for a quick switch from holiday cards?  Journey Collage and the Beautiful Balloon are a perfect pair, combined with the great wine country colors of the Vineyard Kaleidacolor Inkpad.


Memory Box Products

  • Beautiful Balloon Die 98854
  • Journey Collage Stamp G1733
  • Honeycomb Designer Stencil 88521

Imagine Crafts Inkpads

  • Vineyard Kaleidacolor
  • Electric Purple Radiant Neons
  • Tuxedo Black, Grape Jelly, Pear Tart and Flannel Gray Memento Dye Inkpads

Spritz watercolor paper with water.  Press an acrylic block (about 3" x 4") onto the Vineyard inkpad, then spritz the inks with water.  Allow the colors to blend for a few seconds, then press the diluted inks onto the damp watercolor paper.  If there are any un-inked areas, lift the block - with the paper attached to it - and press the paper against the block to push the inks around and fill the uninked sections.  Dry the ink with a heat-tool.

Stencil Honeycomb with Electric Purple and dry the ink.  Stamp Journey Collage with Tuxedo Black and dry the ink.  Trim the paper and ink the edges with Grape Jelly.  Attach it to a top-folded 4.25" x 5.5" card of textured white cardstock.

Cut Beautiful Balloon from watercolor paper.  Leave the diecut in the die and stencil it with Pear Tart and highlight the edges of each section with Flannel Gray.  Attach it to the background with foam dots.  Add green and violet sequins.

Thanks for stopping by - hope you'll be back again tomorrow.  Marnie's posting a project - it'll be a great one!




Great cards, Jean. Love the new dies!
