Hello and Thanks with Alcohol Ink

Hello friends! Kimberly here. I have a couple of cards to share with you today using alcohol inks and the new word dies from The Rabbit Hole Designs. The alcohol ink background on the first card was made by me. The gorgeous background on the second card was made and given to me by Niccole to create a card with. I was inspired by her background to give alcohol inks a try again, but my backgrounds always look like a tractor trailer ran over a rainbow. Well, I refuse to give up! 


This first card was made using Brea Reese alcohol inks and acetate because my Yupo paper is still in storage from our move. 


I wanted the background to be white so I adhered it directly to a white card base.  Next, I cut out "Hello" using the new Hello-Scripty Dies from brushed gold cardstock. I adhered that right to the alcohol ink panel. Then, I heat embossed the word "Friend" from the matching Hello-Scripty stamp set using the awesome new Cottontail Embossing Powder Tool and gold embossing powder on a strip of black cardstock. I added foam tape to it and popped it up on the panel. To finish this card, I added some gold glitter enamel dots from my stash. 

This next card features the beautiful background Niccole made. 



I used the shadow part of the Thanks-Scripty die to cut a part of the panel so I could make a shaker card. Next, I lined up the shadow part that I cut out and adhered it to a gold base so it would show through the shaker. I die cut the word "Thanks" from gold cardstock and adhered it to the "Thanks" shadow. 
I glued acetate to the alcohol ink panel and added some sequins over the word thanks for the shaker element of the card. Then, I added foam tape and attached the ink panel to the card base. I embossed the sentiment from the matching Thanks-Scripty stamp set using gold embossing powder and the Cottontail Embossing Powder Tool on a white strip of cardstock. To finish this card, I popped the sentiment up on foam tape and glued a few sequins to the card front.

Happy Belated Birthday


Hey yall, happy weekend!!!  For today's card I used the Birthday Scripty stamp set & dies for a quick birthday card.  On the smaller white panel I stamped my sentiment in the upper left corner and then added some staggered candles in the lower left.


After coloring the candles in with Copics, I added the "birthday" layers.  For that I just used the shadow die on some fun & flowery patterned paper and then added the word die in pink!

That pink background is actually a patterned paper, it's kind of an ombre look, but it was way too subtle and looked to plain for me so I got pale pink ink and then stamped some more candles around the edges.  The white panel is popped up with foam tape.  

You can also read about this card on my blog, here with links to the products I used, etc.  Thanks for popping by, come back again soon!

Thanks For Everything

 

Hello! Lauren here today sharing my thank you card featuring the new Thanks, Scripty stamp and die sets. This was an easy card to make beautiful thanks to Niccole's gorgeous alcohol ink background panel! 

To turn the panel into a finished card, I first prepared a piece of vellum using the new Cottontail Embossing Powder Tool. Then I stamped the Thanks word using my watermark ink pad. I covered the word with gold embossing powder, tapped off the excess and heat set it. The Cottontail embossing tool works perfectly on vellum. No stray embossing powder clung to the vellum.







I used the shadow die from the Thanks die set to cut out the embossed word. I adhered it onto the alcohol inked background. 



Next, onto aqua cardstock I prepared, then stamped in watermark ink, the sentiment. Then embossed in gold. I used sentiment strip die from my stash to trim out the sentiment. Then adhered it to the panel. 





The last step, completing the card, was to back the panel with gold mirror cardstock and then adhere it onto a top folding A2 (4.25 x 5.5") white card base.
These Big Scripty words are perfect for creating quick and beautiful cards! Thanks so much for visiting!

 Hi there.  Welcome to The Rabbit Hole Designs blog. It's Kelly here today and I am sharing a card  I made using several new products from the last release.  My card features the "Thanks" stamps and dies as well and the new stencil "Mid Century Modern".

To make this card, I used the following steps:

  • I secured white card stock to  "Mid Century Modern" stencil.
  • I used the Bitty Blending Brushes to apply distress oxide inks to specific places (see below).
  • I embossing "thanks" in white on blue card stock and then used the "Thanks" dies to cut it out.
  • I adhered the stenciled panel to orange card stock.
  • I attached mesh ribbon from my stash and glued the "Thanks" on top.
  • I then adhered the panel to a white card base and added some clear gems.
