Fun with Alcohol inks, Felt and Die Cuts

Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Hi friends. I am super excited to be sharing a fun project with you here and on the LDRS Creative blog today.

For my card today, I thought I would do a bit of alcohol ink blending with some foil bits added to my background. I absolutely love the feel and texture of this panel.

After my panel was complete, I ran it through my die cutting machine with the largest die from the Sunburst Rectangle die collection. This die is absolutely so much fun because it creates such a fun pattern.

I also ran the Sunburst Rectangle die again through my machine with 3 pieces of plain white card stock. I did this so that my card would have a bit of dimension without having to add small bits of foam tape behind all of the circles.

I simply adhered all the die cuts together with liquid glue and then added my alcohol inked piece on the top.

It is now time to start embellishing my card. I wanted to pull out the super fun Fancy Flower dies. I love the fun shapes of these and that you get solid flowers as well as ones with some designs cut into them so you can achieve a great layering affect.

I also decided it would be fun to create the leaf die cuts out of some felt for added texture and dimension.

I added a gold heat embossed sentiment that is from the Happy Fall stamp set released a couple of weeks ago. I absolutely adore this sentiment and can't wait to make more cards using it to send to friends and family.

Thanks for visiting and crafty hugs!

Oh I love it! Especially with the added felt details. I went through a felt phase some time ago and I have quite a lot left over needing a project. Such a brilliant idea! xx
