A Bit of Summer Brilliance

You have heard me speak of my love for IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Brilliance™ Pigment Ink before, so this won't be a surprise to you, but, for reals, you guys...it's so gorgeous! And it is a natural choice for summer projects, particularly those with the bit of extra glimmer to them! LOVE THAT!!! I pulled out some fun summer flag stamps to create today's card tutorial. I hope you like it!

IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Brilliance™ Pigment Ink in Rocket Red and Mediterranean Blue
Red and White Cardstock
May Arts ruffled red gingham ribbon
Sequins (red and blue)
Bossy Joscie sentiment Flair
Hero Arts Hooray Stamp Set

Step 1

Trim a white panel to 3 3/4 x 5" and stamp the polka dot banner several times across the card just about an inch and a half or so from the bottom of the panel.

Step 2

Next, stamp the striped banner in Mediterranean Blue IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Brilliance™ Pigment Ink between the red banners. Using a stamp press for this helps to easily see where you are working.

Step 3

Adhere a strip of ruffle ribbon across the bottom line of the banners and then glue on the sequins.

Step 4

Create a card base from cardstock. Trim a red panel to 4 x 5 1/4" and adhere to the card base. Adhere your stamped panel to the card. Affix the flair sentiment and you are done!


Have a Happy!


  1. Looks fabulous!

    I'm pretty intrigued by the fiskars stamping press...is that one of your 'go-to' stamping supplies? I think I first saw it on Wida's blog.

  2. So, tell us more about those inks. Don't they take longer to dry, and stuff? I am a-sceert that I would smudge the crap outta everything.
    I also saw you got some Memento Luxe inks in one of your hauls--What's the skinny on them?
