So Suzy Alcohol Ink butterflies

Hi Everyone,

this gorgeous butterfly is from the new So Suzy Stamps release. I was planning on turning it into a Monarch, but it did not quite work out that way.

My stamp supplies:

I made myself a mask and stamped on Yupo paper.

I heat embossed the butterflies with clear embossing powder.

Started to dolor them in with alcohol inks

Kept adding more, but some of the green moved outside the outlines. So I added more green on the outside, but in the end did not like it. 

 So I took a mini mister that I had filled with rubbing alcohol and spritzed it. I held the  paper upright, so the diluted ink started to run toward the bottom.
Kind of cool, I thought.

Wanted a bit more color, so I added pink splatters.

I heat embossed the sentiment onto some wood paper in white. Added it to the card with foam tape.
One tip: Be careful, when heat embossing Yupo - it is not paper, it is plastic and warps fairly quickly.

And looks what's coming up:

Happy Stamping!

This card is so pretty and the way you used the alcohol inks is great! I just ordered my first alcohol inks and can't wait to use them especially after seeing your card. Thanks for playing with us at AAA Cards.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
