Two Cards With Alcohol Inks and New Dies
by Angie Cimbalo


Hello and welcome!  It's Angie here today with 2 cards featuring new dies from the last release plus some alcohol inks!

I love working with alcohol inks and then die cutting from the resulting panels.  You never know how they will turn out and so it's truly an experiment in color every time!  For my first card I use the Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers die set, all of them to create a shaped card.  

First I cut all of the layers at once from white and then next I took the largest die and cut it from a folded card base, but left the top edge of the die hanging over the top so it wouldn't cut through.  That created the shape card base and all I had to do was add the set of dies I first cut right on top of the card base.  Next, I cut the smaller die in the center from alcohol ink panel (that was splattered with white paint) and heat embossed the sentiment from the Joyful Moments stamp set right in the center with white embossing powder.  I also cut the Scribble Daisy from the same panel and left it all in one piece to add to my card.  Lastly I added gold jewels from the Christmas Fairy Jewels package.  Here's a closer look:


Here's a look at card #2:

To create my 2nd card I did the same things except I cut the set of Curved dies from black and white and pieced them together, same look, 2 colors.  And instead of using the flower I used the Plumed Gypsy Butterfly die.  This time I used the sentiment new die called "Hello Rush Script" and I added the same gold jewels.
Here's a closer look:

And here's one last look at both cards:



I hope you like my cards for today!  I enjoyed creating them and I hope I inspired you to pull out your alcohol inks and dies and make some pretty cards!!!
