May Flaum creates with Dylusions!

Hi bloggers!

I'm pleased to bring you some fantastic new tips and techniques from design team member and friend of Simon, May Flaum! We hope this project inspires you and gets you in the mood for that lovely holiday coming up this week!! Don't forget to visit May Flaum's blog HERE for lots of daily inspiration! Without further ado, I will let May take it away!


Hey there, May Flaum here and while my fingers are an inky mess, my project for once is not! I’ve created this card with Dylusions products and a bit of help from some Simon exclusives as well: 


This was such a fun Valentine to make, and really a simple card as well. To show the techniques I used and how I made this card, I’ve created a video to share with you here today.


Whether you get messy or just use neat pieces of a messy technique – have fun. I wish you very Happy Crafting!

Supplies:



Thanks for reading, and thanks again to May for this great inspiration!

  4. Love to get messy and inky myself, but still at the same time find myself in a need to make CAS-cards, so this is straight in my way of crafting!

  5. I love this, May! I have to confess, I am very intimidated by the whole spray ink, stencil thing. I love the look, but it never seems to work out right for me. I think I could do this, though. It was genius to cut the heart out of the "messy" stenciled piece, and I love the look. Thanks for sharing!
