Alcohol Ink Background Cards | Whimsy Stamps Day of the Dead Frame Stamp

Good morning everyone, Halloween is in the air, and for today’s post I have two cards to share with you featuring the newly released Day of the Dead Frame Rubber Stamp.


Whimsy Stamps Day of the Dead Frame Rubber Stamp


For the first card, I created an alcohol ink background using Amethyst, Raspberry, and Eggplant alcohol inks by Ranger Ink.

I added all three of the inks onto a mini applicator felt pad and added a blending solution then pounced the ink back and forth around my panel until it created the marble texture look.

The background was so stunning as it was, that I stamped the Day of the Dead Frame onto the background and white heat embossed it. Just a little tip, that if you are embossing onto Yupo paper, you want to move the heat gun constantly so that the paper does not melt.

For the second card, I created another alcohol ink background this time using an orange palette. I used Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, and Butterscotch alcohol inks by Ranger. Once again, I applied the alcohol ink as before, by adding it an applicator felt pad and pounced the ink onto a piece of Yupo Paper.

Once the background was dry, I stamped the Day of the Dead Frame image using black alcohol ink then fussy cut the image with a slight border.

To finish this card, I added the alcohol ink panel with foam adhesive to an A2 sized piece of pattern paper from the new Sugar Skulls Paper Pack and then added a couple of ghosts and the large word die-cut from the Boo Die Set.
