I am super excited to post my first post as Artist in Resident for Imagine Crafts today. The challenge this month is to use a new Kaleida-color ink pad, the matching Memento Ink Β and a Fireworks! Ink spray. That was not an easy challenge for me. I am so not a multi-colored kind of girl. But I made it work. πŸ™‚ I used the new Tomato Vine Kaleidacolor ink pad. The matching Memento Ink colors are Rich Cocoa, Bamboo Leaves, Morocco, Love Letter and Peanut Brittle Memento Ink.

To see step by step instructions for this card click on more.

Slide your Kaleidacolor ink pad together and ink up butterfly image from JustRite Stamper Grand Sentiments.

Stamp image on white cardstock. Add antenna stamp in Rich Cocoa Memento ink.

Draw butterfly body with Rich Cocoa Memento Marker. Cut out image.

Stamp frame image in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. Cut out with Spellbinders Label Four and Label Eight Nestabilities dies.

Sponge layers while die is still over the cardstock first with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink,

then with Peanut Brittle Memento Ink.

Sponge the inside of the Label Four die cut with Peanut Brittle Memento Ink and stamp a sentiment with Rich Cocoa in the center.

Emboss a 4 1/4″ white cardstock square with the Enchanted M-Bossabilities folder. Color the raised images with Bamboo Leaves, Morocco and Love Letter Memento Inks.

Spray the background and a bit of the sentiment panel with Lady Bug Fireworks! Ink spray.

Stitch embossed layer to a slightly bigger piece of brown cardstock before. Punch a hole on the lower left of the sentiment panels and tie seam binding around the layers. Adhere sentiment panels with foam adhesive squares. Finish off the card with rhinestones.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

  12. Congratulations! Beautiful card. I love it!

  13. Beautiful! Love the card, especially the idea of using a kaleidoscope type ink pad for the butterfly! I have an old one that never gets used (it will now). One questions for your gorgeous card — what is the the pencil type tool that you used to get the ink from the dew drops onto the card (pencil with blender type top)?

  14. Lovely card. like the way you colored the embossed piece with those pen nibs…what are they? they seem to work very well.

  36. Beautiful card as always. I haven’t used my kaleidoscope ink in a long time but now you have given me ideas. Thanks!

    What spray did you use on the card? It’ a red color and looks like a color splash but who is the maker and who sells it?

  37. Gosh this was a lot of work, but the results are gorgeous, Beate. What a beautiful creation!

  38. Congrats and great work. I have a couple of those Kaleidacolor inkpads that I never use. I guess it’s time to pull them out. Now, if I could just remember where I put them.

  39. Congrats!!! I love the multi color on the butterfly and such a pretty way to do the background and neat framing!

  40. How very different Beate. It’s bright, bold and beautiful.

  41. Where is the stamped frame from? I have the nest abilities dies and feel the frame would really be a nice addition.
    Thank You

  42. You really met the challenge and worked those inks Beate! Lovely πŸ™‚
