(2020 c005) Alcohol Ink Congrats

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love Alcohol Inks and for today’s card, once again I followed Mindy Eggen’s Wispy Alcohol Ink Tutorial found on Jennifer McGuire’s Blog.    I used Yupo “Heavy” 9×12 Paper by Legion from Hobby Lobby,  Sandlewood, Denim Ranger Alcohol Inks and Copper, and Teal Pinata Alcohol Ink. (This photo does not capture the beautiful teal in the center, not sure why it looks blue.)  The sentiment was cut with Scripty Congrats by Lawn Fawn using  a chunky glitter cardstock.  As you can see on the right I created a hand written Retirement tag with the added HAPPY die cut from Say It – Happy Crafting Dies by Technique TuesdayThe stamped sentiments were from a stamp company that has gone out of business called Mark’s Finest Papers.

(2020 c003) New Year Wishes.jpg

I think it is totally fair to send New Year’s wishes cards throughout January and maybe even February.  So watch your mailbox friends, this one is on its way to a sweet friend.

I made the background with Yupo “Medium” Paper by Legion from Hobby Lobby.  I diluted Ranger Alcohol Inks on my craft mat with 91% Isopropal Alcohol from Wal Mart and smushed the paper into it multiple times to cover it.  Wishes was cut with my NEW Hero Arts DC239 Wishes Stamp & Cut .  The white panel on top was cut with DI532 Snowflake Edge Fancy Die by HERO ARTS. I added sparkle to the snowflakes only with Zig Wink of Stella .   New Year’s  from my NEW set callen   Hero Arts DC239 Wishes Stamp & Cut, was stamped using Versamark Ink  and heat embossed with a discontinued color Glass Blue Embossing Powder by Ranger.  To finish it off I added clear jewels (I think this item is discontinued) from Buttons Galore and More.

I used Faded Jeans and Sailboat Ranger Alcohol Inks .  I followed Jennifer McGuire’s ALCOHOL LIFT INK TECHNIQUES (you can click to see her video).  I used the Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink Pad Ranger TAC63810 and its much easier to use than using the reinker and felt pads to apply to stamps. The sentiment was stamped with  Versamark Ink   and heat embossed with Silver Ranger Embossing PowderThe tiny snowflakes are from Winter Skies LF1763 from Lawn Fawn,As you can see in the photo on the right, I stamped the large snowflakes and sentiment on the inside with the Joy of the Season set.

(2019 c128) Lawn Fawn Santa’s Sleigh

As promised yesterday,  today’s card uses the leftover background that was used to apply Versamark and Heat emboss the Snowflakes Overlay Die 1864917 by Momenta/Paper Crafts  yesterday’s card https://inkylageney.wordpress.com/(2019 c128) LF Snowy Sleigh 1.jpg

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I used a sponge dauber and pounced Versamark Ink   and heat embossed with Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder by Stampendous.  (This way  the snowflake design was left without embossing on the blue toned sheet)  So I Sponged Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger over the background and buffed off the  ink from the embossed area.(2019 c128) LF Snowy Sleigh 3.jpg  I wanted to create a sliding Santa & Reindeer so I stamped the image from Winter Skies LF1763 from Lawn Fawn, on repurposed plastic packaging with  Jet Black Stazon Ink .  For the INTERACTIVE portion, I glued long beads behind the sleigh & the lead deer and sandwiched  it on another piece of plastic.  I threaded fishing line through the holes and  tied loops on each end to attach it with the wooden beads seen in the photo on the left. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA They were too thick for the brads I planned to attach the string to, so I filed the beads down to half the depth .  I inserted a paintbrush handle into one end (to hold the bead with) and ran it back and forth on an emery board, it took a while but it worked!

In the last photo below you can see the Sleigh start on left and travel to the right.(2019 c128) LF Snowy Sleigh4

Merry Christmas & Wild Wintry Colors and Snowflakes!

The background mopping up  Violet Color Burst by Ken Oliver , it is amazing all the colors within this color.   I created another piece with a little more intense color for the sentiment which was cut with Merry Christmas Dies with shadow by Pink and Main and mounted it on the shadow which was cut with vellum.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  The background diecut was cut from white cardstock with Snowflakes Overlay Die 1864917 by Momenta/Paper Crafts .  As you can see in the photo on the right:   I placed it on another piece of cardstock that I had used to mop up distress inks in the blue tones.   I used a sponge dauber and pounced Versamark Ink   and heat embossed with Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder by Stampendous.  (This way  the snowflake design was left without embossing on the blue toned sheet and you will see that backgound  with a surprise color added in another card soon)
