Good morning everyone and welcome to this months’ Craft Collabs Hop, where we come together to share themed crafty projects.
This month’ we are sponsored by Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps, found here.
My card today features Winter Hugs stamp set and a pearl alcohol ink background.
I first started working on the background for this card because I needed time for this to dry. I decided to work with Pearl Alcohol
inks in several shades of purples and pinks, along with a touch of silver and white. In a well-ventilated room, I placed a piece of
Yupo Paper onto my work surface and added the alcohol inks one by one, as well as the blending solution.
The fun part of creating with alcohol inks is that you can play around by adding the ink and then moving the ink around with a
blending solution and a felt applicator tool or a brush and even a straw will move that ink. There is no right or wrong way, it’s all
about just sitting down and playing around.
Once, I was happy with the outcome of my background, I set it aside to completely dry. In the meantime, I stamped all of the
images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock with Memento Tuxedo ink and used my Copic markers to color them in,
then the ScanNCut to cut them out.
Copic Markers Combination
Igloo: B000, BG000, B0000, Blender
Polar Bears: W2, W1, W00, R20, R000, Blender
Penguin: Black W9, W7, W5, W3 White W2, W1, W00, Blender Feet YR04, E33
Once the background was dry, I added Distress Micro Glaze to seal in the color, then began working on the rest of the components.
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and heat set it with white embossing powder, then trimmed it down.
I used a stitched hillside die to creatively die cut a long piece of white cardstock for the snowbank. Once I had all of the
pieces colored and die cut, I was ready to add the components onto the card front and create a very wintery little scene.
