Gina K Wreath Builder with a Die Cut Background

Today’s card is one of my favorite! I love the contrast of colors and the simple but wonderful Altenew background die.

This card features Altenew’s Gradient Stripes Cover Die

Supplies: Gina K Designs – Rina Krupsky Mandala Maker©, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Pinkalicious, Starlight, Razzleberry, Turquoise, Tide Blue, Rubellite, Pink Diamond; Nuvo Crystal Drops Caribbean Ocean, Studio G Glitter Glue VG0021, Lawn Fawn In/Out Stitched Circle Stackable Die, We R Memory Keepers Nesting Dies Circles, Altenew Gradient Stripes Cover Die, Wink of Stella Shimmer Pen, Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Stamp Set, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest Card Stock #80, #110 and Craft Foam.

I used the negative stripe cut outs and colored them with Altenew Crisp Dye Ink -Razzleberry, then in-laid them back into the background to make the colorful stripes.

Alcohol Inks – You’re Amazing!

Hello!! Today’s blog post is featuring cards made with alcohol inks. Both cards were made with the same background piece. I used an airbrush to move around the alcohol inks. Alcohol inks are so much fun because you just never know what you are going to end up with…but you know it’s going to be great!

The supplies I used on these cards are: Ranger Alcohol Inks: Poppyfield, Pink Sherbert, Salmon, and Watermelon, Ranger Black Enamel Accents, Alcohol Blending Solution, Isopropyl Alcohol, Medium-weight Legion Yupo paper, My Favorite Things Stamps Happy Birthday Script Die, My Favorite Things Stamps YAY For You Stamp Set, Black Card Stock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #110 Card Stock.

The contrast of colors on this birthday card is striking and bright. The Happy Birthday sentiment is four layers of cardstock, giving it dimension.
