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.
Hi there! Thank you for visiting Treasures In Letters today. I am just posting my Valentine’s cards now because I didn’t want to show them off and risk the recipient’s seeing them ahead of time. 🙂
Today’s cards feature a piece of alcohol inked background from my “stash”. Yes, I continue to work on using some of my stash.
The first card uses: Simon Says Stamp Cupid’s Heart Die, an alcohol inked background that has Ranger Watermelon ink and silver mixative plus a couple of other red-family alcohol inks (it was in my “stash” so I don’t have any notes on exact colors), My Favorite Things Inside/Out Stitched Square STA, Altenew Pure White embossing powder, Versamark ink, and the sentiment is from The Stamps of Life Ice Cream Truck 2 Stamp. Other supplies include: Neenah Solar White Classic Crest card stock #80, #110, a bone folder and Scor-buddy and black card stock.
Supplies: Simon Says Stamp Cupid’s Heart Die, Simon Says Stamp You Matter background stamp, alcohol inked background (from my stash…see supplies for card above this one), Black card stock, Altenew Pure White embossing powder, Poppy Stamps Scribble Love Heart, The Stamps of Life Ice Cream Truck 2 Stamp, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest card stock #80, #110, Versamark ink.
This beautiful card was for my daughter Courtney and the card below it was for my son-in-law, Chris. Her birthday was on the 16th and his on the 19th. Needless to say, we had fun last Saturday night with our family going out for Chinese food and then having cake at home!
Supplies: Birch Press Wishing Mandala Stamp and Stencil Set, Distress Oxides: Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Salty Ocean, Worn Lipstick, Seedless Preserves, Gina K Amalgum ink, My Favorite Things Stamps Happy Birthday Script Die.
Supplies: Alcohol Ink paper, Ranger Alcohol Inks: Stream, Mermaid, Sailboat Blue, Pool, Indigo, My Favorite Things Stamps Block Happy Birthday Die, Ranger Alcohol Blending Solution, Silver Foil, Shiny Silver card stock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110 card stock, craft foam.
This card is a clean, simple and easy one to replicate. It uses Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set and some Altenew Crisp Dye Inks. I had one of the cards (unfinished) in my “stash” box and decided to finish it off with a sentiment and mount it on a card base. As a result I made 14 more and donated them to my church. I’m thinking of making more of them and just switching up the sentiment. It would make a great sympathy card or birthday card.
Supplies:Altenew Floral Art Stamp Set, Altenew Crisp Dye inks in the following combinations; Coral Berry & Grapevine, Orange Cream & Firebrick, Hydrangea & Andromeda, Volcano Lake & Emerald, Frayed Leaf, Gina K Amalgum ink, Versamark ink, Simon Says Stamp Wonky Rectangles Die, Altenew Wishing You Stamp Set and Altenew Crystal Clear Embossing Powder.
Today’s card is another card that I made for the AECP Educator’s Blog Hop but didn’t use. I ended up cutting down the original card base and adhering it to a background.
Supplies: Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder, Altenew Dandelion Wishes Stamp set, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Morning Frost, Evening Gray, Moon Rock, Canson Watercolor card stock, Altenew Half-tone Square Die, Versamark ink, Mister water bottle, craft foam, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #110 card stock.
How I made it: Stamp the dandelions by putting ink on the stamp, spritzing the stamp with water, then stamping the image onto the watercolor card stock. Continue to do this for each dandelion and the stems. This creates a faux watercolor effect. Cut card stock down to 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and then rub the four sides of the card stock square with Versamark ink and heat emboss with Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder. Stamp a 4 1/4″ x 5″ watercolor card stock with dandelion wisps and Altenew Evening Gray ink. Stamp dandelion wisps on 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ card front using Altenew Morning Frost ink. Heat emboss sentiment with Altenew Rose Gold embossing powder. Mount the card front onto card background with craft foam. Mount card front onto Neenah Solar White #110 card stock. Finished card is 4 1/4″ x 5″.
Hello and welcome back to Treasures In Letters. Today I am sharing the first card I made for the recent AECP Educators Card Blog Hop (see my post for Jan. 18, 2019).
Supplies: Black card stock, Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #110, gray card stock, Vellum, Altenew Dandelion Wishes Stamp and Die Set, Altenew Moroccan Mosaic Stamp, Altenew Pure White embossing powder, Altenew Crystal Clear embossing powder, Altenew Translucent Pearl embossing powder, Altenew Warp Speed stencil, Altenew Crisp Dye inks: Frayed Leaf, Evergreen, Forest Glades, Morning Frost, Lava Rock; Versamark ink.
How I made it: I started by rubbing Versamark ink on top of the Warp Speed stencil over Vellum. I then heat embossed with Altenew Translucent Pearl embossing powder. On the back of the vellum I stamped the dandelion wisps with Versamark and heat embossed with Altenew Pure White embossing powder. I wrapped this vellum piece around a gray piece of card stock 4″ x 5 1/4″. I stamped (on Neenah Solar White card stock #80), 1 full-head and 2 half-head dandelions with Altenew Morning Frost ink then with Versamark and Altenew Crystal Clear embossing powder. I stamped the seed centers with Altenew Lava Rock ink and the stems with Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen Altenew inks. The sentiments were heat embossed with Altenew Pure White embossing powder. The card was framed by 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ black card stock then mounted on #110 Neenah Solar White card stock.
Welcome back to Treasures in Letters, thank you for stopping by. Today I am sharing with you my second-runner up choice for the AECP Blog Hop that I participated in last Friday….so much fun!! And throughout this week I will show you some of the other cards I made on my journey to get to my final choice.
Here is my card for today. To make my card I used Altenew Warp Speed Stencil and dry embossed it in Vellum.
To make this card I heat embossed 1 full-head dandelion and 3 half-head dandelions with Versamark ink and WOW Superfine White Pearl Embossing Powder (on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80 card stock). I stamped the stems using Altenew Crisp Dye Inks in Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen. I stamped the seed pods in Lava Rock.
I wrapped the vellum panel around a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ light gray card stock and used a tape roller to glue in place (in the back). I arranged my dandelions and taped down the full-head dandelion but used foam tape on the half-head dandelions. I used a touch of liquid glue on each of the vellum wisps to glue them down. I adhered the gray/vellum card front to craft foam then onto a deep green 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ card stock, adhering the card front to a #110 Neenah Solar White Classic Crest card base. I heat embossed my sentiment onto deep green card stock using Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder.
The supplies I used for my card are: Altenew Warp Speed Stencil, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen, Lava Rock, Morning Frost; Altenew Translucent Pearl Embossing Powder, Altenew Pure White Embossing Powder, Altenew Build-A-Flower Chrysanthemum Stamp Set, Altenew Tulip Stamp Set, Vellum, Deep Green card stock, Versamark, WOW Super fine White Pearl Embosssing Powder, Craft Foam, and Neenah Solar White Classic Crest #80, #110 card stock.
