Sending You Smiles (with new Kirarina Wink)

Hi everyone! We’ve spent the last two days trying to shovel out from the blizzard but in between, I managed to spend a bit of time in my craft room.  Now available from Imagination International are two new Kirarina Wink pens – Emerald and Violet.  I used Emerald on my project along with Old Rose, Dandelion and White Pearl. (I love them on black card stock.) You can read a bit more about the Kirarina Wink pens HERE.

I’ve used For to Us (it’s not just for Christmas!) and Sending and Wishing along with the coordinating Sending die from Simon Says Stamp. (Sending and Wishing with both dies can be purchased all together here.)

Here’s how I created my card:


First stamp the swag onto black card stock using black ink. If your ink disappears very quickly, try another brand. Some show better than others.


Use Kirarina Wink pens to trace and color the image.


Die-cut “Sending” from black card stock then color with Old Rose. Once dried, I colored over the die-cut a second time.

Adhere beneath the colored swag.


Stamp the second swag in black ink and color.

Lastly, I used my powder tool over all areas, then stamped the remainder of the sentiment in white ink and embossed with white powder.  🙂

Thanks so much for visiting today!

    Gorgeous card! It just reached out and grabbed me!

  3. Beautiful Michele! Those pens are amazing! How much snow did you end up with? Sounds like it was really rough out that way

    • Thanks, Sheri! I don’t really know how much snow we got since there was so much blowing. Definitely more than 2 ft. Maybe 30-something inches. The piles are SO high, many neighborhood roads are cleared about one vehicle wide and we haven’t had mail since last Friday.

  4. What a beautiful look!! I love the way you have “framed” the sentiment with the sparkling swag! I have not tried those pens – you’ve enabled me!!
