Hello there! I have never been a big Valentine’s Day card maker but this year has been different. With all the social distancing we have been doing for almost a year now, I miss “sharing the love” with hugs and affection. When you can’t do that with a physical hug then a hand made card can be the next best thing. 🙂
This card is so pretty in person!! I hope to be able to show you thru multiple pictures some of the beauty in this card.
One of the features of the card is the center heart. I found this among my stash, cut from some pattern paper I had at some point. It is an ivory color so it sets itself apart from the white background. The white cardstock front was ink splattered with Altenew’s Jet Black Ink Spray, after I used Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Plate: Woven and Go Press and Foil: Clear Foil (iridescent finish).
The flowers and leaves were cut using Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Plate: Calligraphy Hearts and a card that I had done some alcohol inking on a long time ago. The alcohol inks I used were from Marabu: Olive Green and Garnet.
This was such an easy card to make and so pretty! I hope you liked it!

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.

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!
