Lately, I’ve been breaking out some older stencils and experimenting with ombre ink blending. This is my comfort zone as far as mixed media is concerned, LOL! I love the smooth look of the blended colors. For this project, I used my Kaleidacolor ink pads along with the Daisy Flower Cluster stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop for even more color variation.
Have some fun this Halloween and create a spooky card to send to someone who enjoys the day with you or may even have a special occasion going on that day. These would make great invitations to your Halloween party, too! The inked background and cut outs help to give this card a 3-d effect that will make anyone jump or even shudder.
A: No. You can use many brands of dies in your machine. The key to each die is the stacked plates also known as the sandwich for each die type that you use. You can check your machines instructions for more information on the sandwich for different die types.
Q: I can’t get my tape runner to add any tape. Is there something wrong with it?
A: If it’s a new runner and you know it’s not empty, first check that you are holding it correctly so the end that has the tape is down on the paper. It’s easy to grab them and have them upside down. Next, check to make sure there is tape on that area of the roller. Sometimes used tape runners will have an open spot where there is no tape.
