Garden Party Cards

Hey Everyone! Since this week is the Imaginisce's "Garden Party" release party, I just wanted to show you some quick little all purpose cards that I did.

These large flowers are the die cuts that come in this collection. I also used the 6x6 card pad for the small prints. They are just absolutely fantastic! I also used the snag 'em stamps to stamp a little flower image in the corner of the envelopes.

And the center here, I used the trusty i-rock with clear gems. Our design team coordinator, Lori, reminded us last night that with the Copic markers you could actually color the clear gems to get your desired color. Since the Copic markers are made with alcohol ink it colors and stays on the gems quite nicely. I don't know why I have not thought to mention this before. I have done it to color gems red. The marker I used here was almost a neon orange color, YR07, Cadmium Orange.

I have found that you need to use some of the more vibrant or darker colors to achieve a slightly lighter color. These markers are pretty cool. They can color anything that alcohol ink can color. You can even air brush with them.

I know these markers are a bit pricey, but they are refillable thereby beating the price of anything else out there. So once you refill the marker, you really have a great value.

If you are local in Louisiana, there are two local scrapbook stores that sell these markers:
Scrappin Friendzee, Marrero, LA
Woven Heart, Lake Charles, LA
if you go by there tell them that I sent you.

Stay tuned this week for more Garden Party inspiration on both the Imaginisce blog and mine.

Until next time,
