I made SO many cards - I pulled out the new Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol-Lift ink pad and just started creating!
If you haven't watched Tim's video on this ink pad and all the info on it I HIGHLY recommend it - he explains it all SO well and it's a great reference:
These were the end result:
I created a background on white Yupo paper using 3 shades of pink alcohol inks (Flamingo, Currant, and Shell Pink), then inked up Honey Bee Stamps big Zen Bouquet image with the Alcohol-Lift ink pad, pulled off the color then stamped it onto Neenah 80lb Solar White card stock.
With my alcohol inked background I die cut it into 2 panels using Honey Bee Stamp's Stitched Rectangle wafer dies, then matted it with a scalloped rectangle. For the sentiments I used the new Honey Bee With Sympathy stamp set and coordinating wafer die set. I stamped the sentiments with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink on the Sentiment Banners and on the insides.
I made 2 more cards using the white card stock that I stamped the lifted alcohol ink onto. These ones I made in the same way as the first two - but I switched up the sentiments. I used Honey Bee's Special Teacher stamp set and coordinating dies, and added some pretty Rose Pink Jewels from Little Things by Lucy's Cards.
For my peachy/orange/coral combo I used alcohol inks in Honeycomb, Coral and Peach Bellini. I combined that with MFT's Dots & Stripes Sorbet patterned papers.
For the sentiments on these cards I used the Chin Up Buttercup stamp set (inside) with Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey Distress Oxide inks. On the outsides of the cards I used Honey Bee's Grateful stamp set and coordinating wafer die.
For my last 2 cards I created an alcohol ink background on Yupo using Patina, Eggplant and Mermaid Alcohol Inks along with Honey Bee Stamps Zen Ocean stamp set.
For my sentiments I used Honey Bee's Goodness Gracious stamp set and coordinating die set. My Xyron 3" sticker maker was a HUGE help for putting adhesive on the back of all the card stock pieces before I die cut them with all the word dies I used. It made it quicker and easier to stack so many layers together for each card sentiment!
