Merry Christmas to you

Hello everyone!

Today I have another Christmas card featuring products from the latest holiday release.  


Since I had my alcohol inks out from my last post, I decided to play with the new Alcohol Lift Ink for my card today.  

I inked a piece of Yupo paper with various green alcohol inks and made a stamp by die cutting the Pine Wreath from a piece of fun foam.  I adhered the die cuts to a clear acrylic block using repositionable adhesive. 



 I inked the stamp with the alcohol lift ink and stamped into the inked background.  The great thing about this ink is that you can now stamp the image onto cardstock.  I wiped the ink from the background to remove the ink to reveal your stamped image. Tim Holtz has a great video showing how to use this ink pad.  


You can see the stamped image to the right of the picture ( always clean the ink off your stamp before you apply the ink again, otherwise you will transfer the color to your ink pad).  I will be using that background for another card.

I die cut a circle in the middle of the inked card front and adhered it to a white cardstock mat.  

Using red cardstock I die cut the pine wreath about 5 times and glued the branches around the circle opening.


I stamped, colored, and die cut the bunny and adhered it to the center of the circle.

The sentiment was stamped and embossed on a strip of red cardstock and glued to the front of the card.

Thanks for stopping by today!






Fabulous, love this. I recently used the alcohol lift and it's great..x

So very adorable! Love the bunny - she's sweet!
Awesome background!

Question? Would you so kindly tell me the 4th color of green ink, the color seems to b written in a foreign language.
Thank you! Love the idea of using the foam to color and cut!

Hi Nancy, I'm sorry I just saw your question. I had several bottles of ink that had no color listed on the label. I looked at the ranger color chart and the only color it might be is botanical. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful!
