Chari continues her series of encouraging cards with custom sentiments today! She uses Smitty’s ABCs and ink smooshing to create a beautiful card! You can watch the video tutorial below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.
Thanks so much for watching!
I love how Chari varied the upper case and lower case Smitty’s ABCs letters to give this encouraging message an awesome custom look!
Chari used the layered ink smooshing technique with Distress ink to create the stylized image of the earth.
Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Chari! Your card is absolutely gorgeous and so meaningful!
Jenn joins us today to share a fabulous Magic Iris card featuring our whimsical Beam Me Up aliens! Jenn made this card for her nephew who then wanted to learn how to make one too! So Jenn, always the teacher, did a Face Time session to share her crafty knowledge with a new generation of crafters! Check out her blog for more on the story, HERE.
Rather than do lots of ink blending, Jenn used navy blue patterned papers from an older Lawn Fawn paper collection. Maybe you have been hoarding some in your crafty stash; this just might be the time use it. The tiny star patterns are perfect for this outer space theme!
One of my favorite ways to use the Magic Iris is to hide part of the sentiment inside! Jenn used Blue Jay ink to stamp all the greetings!
It’s all in the details, Jenn added Glossy Accents to the alien’s eyes to give them a shiny 3D look! Gotta love the placement of the party hat too!
Thanks for sharing this adorable inspiration today, Jenn! Great job teaching young crafters how to make fun Magic Iris cards!
