Merry Christmas in July! It’s been a minute since I wrote a blog post so what better time to do when we’re celebrating the spirit of Christmas In July?! For today’s cards, I’ve uploaded a video tutorial on how to create these cards using Ink Blending & Ink Smooshing on Cards. These techniques are so easy and fun! The tutorial and supplies are in today’s blog post.
I know many of you are still waiting on your April 2021 So Cool Paper Pumpkin Kits. I was fortunate to get mine and I’ve already done my April 2021 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card for you. The best part about this card is it doesn’t use up any of the awesome elements in the kit so you can still make all the cards as shown in the kit!
Don’t like to watercolor? Do you get frustrated with watercolor results? Do you love the watercolor effect and want new ideas? Have you tried INK SMOOSHING with Acetate? Today I’m going to show you a super fun and EASY technique that looks like a watercolor background but takes a fraction of the time and effort. It’s near impossible to mess up this cardmaking background technique.
WHAT?!? NO ALCOHOL INKS NEEDED?!?
I’ve been wanting to invest in some alcohol inks for some time, but I can’t justify the cost when I have so many supplies on hand. I got to thinking and figured there just had to be a way to create the same effect, or at least close to the same with the current Stampin’ Up! Re-inkers I own. And that’s exactly what I did.
