CAS-ual Fridays: CFC 207

Welcome to a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays!
I used Full on Floral white embossed onto Bristol cardstock, and I used an ink blending tool to add Distress Oxide inks in Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers. I added the friend fri-die cut from wood veneer cardstock, and a stamped sentiment from Pretty Posies white embossed onto kraft cardstock. I finished with some clear sequins.

Alcohol lift ink part 2

When using Alcohol Lift ink, you get two for the price of one, because you get to reuse the alcohol ink that you lifted with the lift ink on another card - does that make sense?  I stamped this Penny Black Flower Cascade image in lift ink over a panel of yupo with alcohol inks on it, and then, without cleaning the stamp, I stamped the lifted ink on the stamp onto a blank white card base. This card is the result.
I decided to colour in the image with Derwent pencils to match the colour of the outline image,  added a sentiment from Papertrey Ink, and some faux stitching in matching gel pens because I thought the image was a bit too far to the right, and needed some balancing out on the left.

Lift ink hugs

I bought a pad of Alcohol Lift Ink at Paperific (thanks to Lesley at Little Bits) and made this card using a yupo panel I had inked up a couple of months ago.
I used the Flower Cascade stamp from Penny Black with the Lift Ink to remove the inks from the yupo panel. I cut it down and adhered it slightly to the left of a top folding card, and then added a layered die cut sentiment from Pink and Main. It's really hard to see in the photo, but the pale purple/orchid die cut has Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink blended towards the bottom edge, and then Perfect Pearls in water sprayed over the top to give the sentiment a subtle ombre effect and a bit of shine. 

Stay tuned in a couple of days - I will post a card I made with the lifted ink!

Thanks for making my day brighter


More alcohol ink goodness!


 I added a border using a stitched rectangles die from Lil' Inkers Designs, and a sentiment using dies from Create a Smile (using Simon Says Stamp glitter cardstock) and a stamp from Simon Says Stamp.
I will be sharing this card at Time Out Challenges, where the theme is BRIGHT!

Thrilled for you

I made this wedding card today. The blobs of gold embossing went a bit awry - oh, well!
The roses are from Simon Says Stamp, coloured with Derwent pencils, and the sentiment is from MFT "geometric greenery".

Rainbow birthday trellis

I love a rainbow, so I use any opportunity to add one to a card.
I used the stained glass coverplate die from Catherine Pooler, over a panel inked with Distress Oxide inks. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

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

Thanks bouquet

Played with my Zigs and a spray bottle of water today.
I used the Lovely Blooms stamp set from Studio Katia, along with the thanks dies from Create a Smile, and a stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

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.

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.

Ombre blue thanks

Most times when I make an alcohol ink background, I cut it down or cut a window out of it, for two reasons - 1. I need some white space, and 2. I can get two cards from one background. However, I loved this panel so much that I just couldn't cut it down!
I added a sentiment from Create a Smile, and from Simon Says Stamp.

CAS-ual Fridays: CFC 205

Welcome to a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays!
