Imagine Stampendous and Tsukineko Together

Stampendous and Imagine Crafts Header

Welcome back! We're on Day 5 of our collaboration with the folks at Imagine Crafts! We're just super excited about these terrific inks and the Radiant Neon™ just have us feeling all summer time and happy! Combining them with Stampendous Images and terrific Fran•táge Color Fragments has made some super cheery, bright inspiration for you!! Plus you have a chance to WIN!

  STM Imagine Crafts Prize Package

I have two projects for you today.  One project just fed the second one so I figured, why not do two!  My first project is a bracelet I thought would be fun to create for the summer.

Here's what I used to create this project:

Stampendous Stamps® Angel Wings Quotes PCS
Stampendous Stamps® Regal Bird Quotes PCS
Stampendous Stamps® Royal Heart Quotes PCS
Imagine Crafts®/Tsukineko® Radiant Neon™ Inks in these "Electric" colors: Coral, Orange, Blue, Green, Purple, Yellow and Pink
Imagine Crafts® /Tsukineko® StāzOn® Midi in Jet Black
Imagine Crafts®  GlāzOn® in Matte Finish
Imagine Crafts® InkBlushers
Tim Holtz® Fragment Charms
Misc chain and jump rings

Here's what I did to create this project:

Pick out your fragments and ink one side using the ink blushers, set aside to dry
Once the ink has dried, add a coat of glaze to protect your finish
Stamp the various words on the non-inked side of each charm, allow to dry and cover with glaze
Add jump rings to charms and attach to chain
Add clasp to chain

As I was inking my charms, I noticed I had ink left on the blushers and rather than waste that ink, I pulled out my small Dylusions journal and randomly added ink to a double-page spread.  I loved the soft look of the colors and there was actually enough of each color to cover both pages!  I added some stamps and a favorite quote and my pages were complete!

Here's what I used to create these pages:

Stampendous Stamps® Cling Hydrangea Garden
Imagine Crafts®/Tsukineko® Radiant Neon™ Inks in these "Electric" colors: Coral, Orange, Blue, Green, Purple, Yellow and Pink
Imagine Crafts® /Tsukineko® StāzOn® Midi Inks in Emerald City and Blue Hawaii
Imagine Crafts® InkBlushers
Dylusions® Small Journal
Black Medium Pen

Here's what I did to create these pages:

Smoosh blushers on journal pages until no more ink comes off
Stamp images as shown (I stamped off with every other small blossom)
Write quote with pen
