Fun with Alcohol Inks and the January Release

Hello all and thank you so much for stopping by today. I am super excited to be participating in today's MFT DT Challenge: Release Replay.

I have 2 cards to share today using a few super fun products. My first card uses the Full of Heart Die-namics, which was cut from an A2 Stitched Rectangle panel. I layered it over a piece of card stock that I dipped in water with alcohol ink on the surface. I stamped and embossed a sentiment and layered it over the heart panel. 



My next card uses Yupo paper and I dripped alcohol ink on it and used the blending solution to move the ink around. I used a reverse camouflage technique where the words are recessed instead of popped up.

My card today features the new From the Heart stamp set and Hearts in a Row - Vertical. I cut the hearts from the stitched panel and then added strips of card stock behind it with the panel popped up. I used one of the "trio" sentiments from the stamp set and laid one strip over each heart. It's such a cool way to add a sentiment!

My card today features the new Peek-a-Boo Striped Heart Die-namics. I just LOVE this die. Give me a die with 6-8 strips and I am sure to slap rainbow colors on it. I inlaid the stripes in the heart and then added 3/8" strips behind the heart panel to add some more color to the card. The sentiment is from From the Heart. There are SO many amazing sentiments in it!

miss you

Hello all and thank you so much for stopping by today. I am super excited to be participating in today's MFT DT Challenge: Release Replay.

I had a "big idea" to use Our Town Die-namics and I'm so excited I was able to execute my idea! Here is the backstory: there is a friend (or wife, or girlfriend, or mom etc) who is REALLY missing someone. They can't sleep. They are the only person in the neighborhood who is awake with the light on. Chibi lights to the rescue. I created a simple circuit and the lights of one house are illuminated.

Multicolor Embossed Mandala

Hello all and thank you so much for stopping by today. I am super excited to be participating in today's MFT DT Challenge: Release Replay.

I grabbed the amazing Mesmerizing Mandala and heat embossed it with 4 different colored powders. Then I cut the panel out with an A2 Stitched Rectangle. I added a piece of vellum over part of it to give an area for the sparkly PEACE to go, then added a stitched ampersand and Joy. I REALLY love how this card turned out. I am really digging soft colors for Christmas cards this year. :) 



I also created another PEACE card with a different technique. This time, I created a color bust background and then used the camouflage technique to cut the word out of the background. I added a few accent snowflakes and crystals to liven up the card. :)
