Tami Sanders here with your card sketch for June and a sample card made using the sketch.

Each month, usually on the 13th, I’ll be sharing a new card sketch as well as tips and techniques for using inks and more from Clearsnap on your cards and projects.

Here is June’s sketch (click sketch to enlarge)…

And here is the sample card I made using the sketch…

This card was made using some of the NEW! Teresa Collins ColorBox® Pigment Inks. If you are familiar with Teresa Collins and her lines, you’ll know that she is know for bold, graphic designs in neutral colors with POPS of color. She is also on top of trends, which is why you will find LOTS of bLiNg and metallics in her newest lines. Clearsnap has teamed up with Teresa to bring you a line of inks that coordinate with her lines that include those same great metallics!

Here are the Teresa Collins ColorBox Pigment Inks that I used on the card – from top to bottom: Loft Black, Fiesty Red, Platinum Silver, Gold Shine and Glitz Gold.

The shimmer and shine you get from these inks is AWESOME! It’s almost textural – it reminds me of velvet. I particularly love the Platinum Silver, it has tints of pink and purple in the mix and is REALLY gorgeous! the large silver stars are stamped in it on the sample. the large gold stars are stamped in Gold Shine and the small gold stars are stamped with Glitz Gold.

You really need to see these inks up close and personal to appreciate how GLITZY they are. Be sure to ask for them at your favorite craft or stamp store.

I also used another NEW! item on this card, a ColorBox® Art Dauber out of the Blending Kit

This little zipper top bag holds a lot of goodies: 1 ColorBox® Color Blender with 4 foam applicators to use with it, 4 ColorBox® Art Daubers and 2 ColorBox® Mini Molding Mats. Perfect for toting to crops or classes. (My bag got a little “smooshed” in transit)

About Tami Sanders

Ink, paper and glue are a few of my favorite things. I enjoy working with a variety of mediums, and don’t really have a set “style”; fresh, graphic or vintage, I like them all.  Likewise, I also find creating a variety of projects challenging. I design scrapbook pages, cards, mixed media projects, altered books, jewelry and more. I have taught scrapbooking and paper crafting classes locally as well as at regional and national conventions. Sharing the joy of inking and paper crafting feeds my creative soul. You can usually find me scouring estate sales and flea markets on the weekends hunting for unique tidbits and trinkets to use in my classes and for my projects. I'm excited to be rejoining the Clearsnap Design Team. I am fortunate to have worked with Clearsnap for over 10 years.
