Mock Alchol Ink Tutorial

The colors aren't so clear in the video. Sorry! Videoing from my camera. Must get a Video Camera. But this is the technique I used when making the butterflies for the Birthday Card I posted this morning.

Mock Alchol Inks Butterflies / Andrea's Birthday Card

Once again I had viewed a video on alchol ink and thought how can I do that with my inks from Stampin' Up!. So I pulled out some White Glossy Paper, Cotton Balls, Reinkers, and Alchol! I had cut some paper about 4 1/2" x 5" and put a generous amount of Alchol on my cotton ball then dotted three different inks on the cotton ball in a row. (Melon Mambo, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise) then swiped cotton ball over card stock straight across a couple of times in the same place, then moved down and did the same, continue to graduate down until card stock was covered. I then rolled my brayer over a few times and then punched out my butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch. My friend Andrea will get this for her Birthday Card!

Emboss Resist

I was playing round after watching one of Kristina Werners card videos. I really enjoy her videos and thought I might try to do the technique she used but with products I have thru Stampin' Up! It came out totally different but I really like it. It was fun!

Baby Show Card

Well I'm heading to Texas today for my niece's baby shower. So this is the card I made for the shower. I had did a punch swap a while back and someone had used their tag punch to do a flower like this. It reminds me of a quilt so I really like this fold. I thought this was a great card to use for a baby card. I'll do a video when I get back from Texas and show you how I did the fold. I like paper fold techniques. I guess because I've sewn for quite some time and it reminds me of fabric!!! K chck back for the video next week!!

Explosion Card Tutorial

Ok here is the tutorial for the explosion card I made. The video isn't the greatest since this is my first video I've uploaded. I'm still getting this figured out! But I think this will show you what you need, to do your own. Enjoy!
