Purple and gold

It was my brother-in-law's birthday this week, and he requested a purple birthday card. (He actuallly requested purple and orange, but he'll have to settle for purple and gold.)
I made the background with alcohol ink and Yupo. I added a sentiment die cut from Honey  Bee, and the stamped part of the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

Sparkle and Shine at A Blog Named Hero

There's a new challenge at A Blog Named Hero  - it is Sparkle and Shine!
I white embossed the Floral Tile Bold Print and added some colour with my Zig markers. I then covered the coloured part with Versamark ink, and then embossed again with Judikins sparkle embossing powder. I added a die cut and stamped sentiment from the Hello Stamp and Cut set, then coated the die cut with Wink of Stella for even more sparkle, and also added a shiny coat of Glossy Accents. A scattering of sequins was the finishing touch.

Sympathy card with alcohol inks

I have a big pile of alcohol ink backgrounds that I'm trying to use up. I always like to have sympathy cards on hand so that I don't have to make one when I need one.
I used dies from Memory Box and from Lil' Inkers, and a sentiment stamp from Clearly Besotted

Hugs to a wonderful friend

I made a background using the Etched Flower background stamp and Zig markers - this is one of the cards I made from it. 
I added heaps of Perfect Pearls in water over the panel, then added the hugs die from Pink and Main, a stamped sentiment from Simon Says Stamp, and some sequins as a finishing touch.

Happy elephant

OMG, how cute are the elephants in the "Fly with Me" Set from Mama Elephant??
I made an alcohol ink background, added some pale pink foil, then cut it with a stitched cloud border die from Lawn Fawn. I stamped the elephant and balloons using Memento ink, and coloured with Copic markers. I added a sentiment from the same stamp set.
