Blog Hop



Today is a fun day because Imagine Crafts® / Tsukineko® & Avery Elle have paired up for a blog hop!  There are going to be a lot of amazing projects on the hop today showing how well Avery Elle and Imagine Crafts / Tsukineko products work together.  We also have a fun giveaway, so be sure to visit all of the blogs participating.

Now my challenge!

When I see their website, I'm in love instantly for neat, cute, stylish designs.
For my challenge, I chose "Blossoms & Blooms" stamp set.

Before the IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink came, I used to avoid solid images because I'm not good at stamping without missing spot. 

Now I'm pretty much confident to use solid images without booboo.  

How to:

Stamp stem with leaves with IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink Northern Pine.


Keep on stamping without inking towarding down direction to make longer and shaded stems.



Stamp flowers on top of each stems with IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink Love Letter.



Die cut stamped panel and scollped circle (Spellbinders).
Add trimmed design paper (K Company) onto folded card.
Sentiment (unknown) is stamped with IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink - Tuxedo Black

Assemble card - that's it!






Good thing is IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink won't stain clear stamps.  Just clean with water,  my new favorite stamps set is good as new :)

  1. Kazuko- I love the flowers on this card and how you created the "fade" effect with triple stamping without re-inking your stamps. And the Love Letter blossoms just pop on the card!
