Hello Stampin' friends! I am back with another card that I made with the NEW Snowflake Magic stamp set and coordinating Snowflake Magic Confetti Cuts from the NEW Reverse Confetti release.
I picked up some YUPO paper a couple of months ago with every intention of pulling out the many Ranger Alcohol Inks that I have kickin' around in my craftroom. I really wanted to make some beautiful marbled backgrounds that I have been seeing others make. So, I played around with the Alcohol inks and YUPO paper using various techniques...it is very fun, relaxing and addictive and definitely helped to got the crafty mojo flowing again.
This background was actually made by "smooshing" the YUPO paper in the residual alcohol ink that was left on my Ranger non-stick craft sheet. I added some extra little drops of Alcohol Blending Fluid to the left over Mountain Rose, Pool and Denim Alchol ink and Silver Mixative that was on the craft sheet to loosen it up and get some more movement of the ink. I loved how this soft marbled background turned out. It was perfect for a Snowflake Magic card.
I stamped and heat embossed the Snowflake Magic stamps on MFT Heavyweight Cardstock in Berrylicious and Pink Lemonade with American Crafts ZING! White embossing powder. I also cut some other snowflakes with the RC Snowflake Trio Confetti Cuts from Sno Cone and Pink Lemonade Heavyweight Cardstock. I embellished with some hemp twine and YNS sparkly Gumdrops.
