Alcohol Ink Background Birthday Card

My card today has my very first alcohol ink background….after my successful previous effort with my alcohol marker reinker,I decided to get some ‘proper’ alcohol inks…and my goodness how addictive they are…there were so many colours to choose from but I chose to start my collection with some bright colours – no surprises there….

After my background was ready and completely dry,I stamped and gold heat embossed the large doily image…I then used a dotted rectangle die to die cut the top layer and adhered it to a plain white card base…
I die the word smile from light pink card cardstock as well as pink craft foam and adhered it to the card front…I stamped the rest of my sentiment on a die cut banner from the same light pink cardstock and adhered it just below..
On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the little fairy image and cut it out before placing it on my card…and finally to embellish my card I have used some light pink sequins…

Time Out Challenges – CASE-ing Beverly Brown

The card I’m sharing today is my entry for Time Out Challenge #91 in which we have to CASE with our own twist a very beautiful and colourful card by Beverly Brown – the owner and designer of Uniko Stamps…creating a fun colourful stripy background was easy and to give it a bit of a design twist,I thought of a few ways and finally decided to go with this one…

On a piece of plain white cardstock,I masked 3/4″ sections with some scrap copy paper and covered these sections with various colours of Distress Inks…I used salty ocean,wilted violet,evergreen bough,squeezed lemonade,spiced marmalade,candied apple and blueprint sketch..

Then I stamped the large doily stamp on this colourful stripy background using versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed it with some clear embossing powder…

Time for the twist…I cut each section of the stripy background apart and adhered them onto a silver foil cardstock panel…making sure to assemble them in the right order…ha ha..

I then added this panel to a plain white card base and also added a black strip on one side of this panel…

Using some more silver foil cardstock and black craft foam,I die cut the alphabets h,b and d and adhered them onto the card front…I stamped the words ‘to you’ on a small silver banner and placed it under the die cut word/acronym..
