Bunny Birthday Shaker!

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Tomorrow is the BIG Day!!! It'll be my Birthday Tomorrow!
It's a BIG Milestone Birthday too! I'll be turning 50! EEK!!!

Normally, I'll have a giveaway to Celebrate the occasion -
And I still will have one - just not until I return -
RETURN? return from where? 

Well... I decided this year since this is a big milestone b-day
that I would go spend it with my sister!
I plan to fly out to visit her this time... Normally I drive
but thought this would be a better way to celebrate ME!
It's not something I would normally do, but I thought for a change
I deserve to treat myself! 😀

I'm pretty excited about the trip, even if we don't do anything
but visit, that'll be the best gift I give myself! 😁

Anyway... I thought I would share my last YUPO card
(OKAY... not Last.. just for now) Wink Wink


Isn't this just so CUTE???? OMGOSH... I thought it turned out Darling!

I tried one of Jennifer McGuire's Techniques with
Alcohol inks and Water Check out the Video HERE!
It's called Alcohol Ink Marbling

She shows how you put water in a container then
add your drops of alcohol ink to it, then place your Yupo
paper into the water and watch how the inks
attach to the Yupo paper - It looks so cool!!

It gives it a soft pastel look but I totally liked it -
So, I created this fun Shaker card with one of the
designs I made using that technique -


-- Products Used --

Cardstock - Neenah Solar White, Spectrum Noir Ultra, Canson Watercolor,
Yupo, Acetate, Papertrey Ink
Assorted Alcohol Inks
Rectangle Frame Die - Frantic Stamper (Inlay Technique)
Sentiment - Haded Blossom (Hey Chickie)

Clear Wink of Stella on the balloons


Since I'll be gone, I won't be checking out your blogs till I get back -

I hope you all have a FABULOUS WEEK AND 
AWESOME EASTER!!!

Circle Rings... Part 2!

Hello and Happy Tuesday Crafty Peeps!
I thought this week I would show you
some MORE Alcohol Ink Projects I made

Today's post is a 2fer one card design
this is the 2fer part! hahaha

I'm still using just the Regular Alcohol Inks
I haven't put my other ones to card designs just yet!

I always need Birthday cards - and this week is
my BIRTHDAY WEEK!!! That's right...

I got a Birthday coming up! EEK!



So, today's card I chose to try out my Alcohol Ink lifter! Part 2!

I used a 6x6 Circle Ring stamp and put my Ink Lifter all
over it, then stamped it onto my Yupo paper (Which I shared Yesterday)

So instead of wasting the ink I just lifted up -
I grabbed a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock
and stamped it right onto it! 
Now check out my New background!! 😀

How cool is that? That was so neat to try
and I was able to create another Birthday card from it!



Cardstock - Neenah Solar White, Yupo, SU, Koh-i-noor, Vellum

I love the colors all blended together! It really is so pretty to just look at!

So, today's card I chose to try out my Alcohol Ink lifter!
I've had it a while now and have been to CHICKEN
to try it out - Well... I can finally say I tried it and I liked the results!

I used a 6x6 Circle Ring stamp and put my Ink Lifter all
over it, then stamped it right onto my
Yupo design - Once I lifted it off, the circle appeared
and it looked even cooler with that subtle design -

I wanted my beautiful background to be my focal point
so I only used a simple sentiment and some sequins -

Sunflower Thanks...

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone!
EEK! It's the weekend and I'm off for another adventure...
Not really an adventure... but it is another road trip - 😁

I have one last Alcohol ink card to show ya -
Not really... I'll be back next week with
some more of them - Yup I went a little
Alcohol Ink Crazy!! 😂😂😂

I got the new Pearl Alcohol inks and I'm in LOVE
I'm not showing you any of those projects yet
since I haven't made anything but backgrounds - 

But I have some projects made with the Regular
Alcohol inks - they are just as BEAUTIFUL! 

I needed a bunch of THANK YOU's for work so this week will
be Alcohol Inks and Thank You cards -


I saved my FAVORITE one for Last!!! I LOVE this card!!!
This one uses an assortment of yellows and oranges, with some brown -
  

I even used FOIL on it!!! I tried to take several pictures to see which
one would show the beautiful foiling - 

While the alcohol ink is still sticky you can lay your foil over it
and rub it on then pull up and you have foiled your
lovely design - It turns out so cool and doesn't come off!


I can honestly say this is STUNNING up close and I'm sure someone at
school is going to LOVE it!
