Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps - Love and Happiness

Hi Everybody,

a few of my card friends have shown some alcohol ink cards and this inspired me to get mine out again and play.

My stamp supplies: 

Forgive me for not having pictures of the process, but it is impossible to make an alcohol ink background and take pictures while you doing it. I like to wet my paper with blending solution - or even better 99% isopropyl alcohol, which only costs a fraction of the blending solution. I drip alcohol ink on it and use my heat tool to move the ink around and dry it. I took a regular brush and flicked clear alcohol onto the card, which gives you those little light colored bubbles. I took the bloom stamps and heat embossed them. If you use Yupo paper you have to be real careful, because it warps easily. The "paper" I used is Grafix opaque white craft plastic - a present from my blogging friend Aileen Ryan from Colour and Sparkle. THANK YOU Aileen - that stuff is fantastic!!!!

I trimmed my craft plastic and added it to the card. The sentiment I simply stamped on a piece of scrap paper and added it with foam tape. Also added some sequins.

Wow what a vibrant and fantastic card. The line stamped images are so pretty and what a lovely sentiment. Yes I have trouble heat setting on Yupo so will go on the hunt for the paper you used and take a closer look x.

The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

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
