Another fabulous card kit with some new products that I had not planned to try showed up on my doorstep. What’s a person to do?
I had to play with the kit and the new Tim Holtz Alcohol Pearl Inks.
I had not planned on purchasing them because I already have a hearty collection of alcohol inks and I can throw some mica powder in and get sparkle. I didn’t want to love another new product.
But I played with them and now I love them! There are 66 colors in all. I have 3. I’m going to control myself this time.
Famous last words, right?!
Here’s the first card that I made with them:
It is fabulously sparkly!
I created the die cut image using two dies: Simon Says Stamp Peeking Frog and Simon Says Stamp Rounded Corner Rectangles.
I will do a separate video on that die cutting technique. It’s a partial die cutting technique and I love how it turned out.
The script hello is a 2 layer die also from Simon Says Stamp. It’s one of my favorites!
The second card I made used all 3 of the alcohol pearl colors:
This image is from Altenew Dearest Friend stamp set, as is the small sentiment. The thank you die is from Concord & 9th. The card base is the Cotton Candy card stock that came in the Simon Says Stamp Kit.
I love these kits every month. They are $34.99 (and that is with shipping included). I feel like they are a great value. I always get card stock, envelopes, patterned paper, a stamp set or two and then some new products to try or new ink pads.
I made two other cards with the kit. I absolutely loved the Moda Scraps 6×6″ paper that came with the kit. It also had a large set of stamps with lots of images and sentiments.
My first card uses this week’s Atlantic Hearts Sketch as my layout inspiration:
For the focal image, I used my Zig Real Brush Markers in Carmine Red, Light Carmine, Mustard, and Yellow. I heat embossed it in gold embossing powder. The Hello sentiment is just the top die cut from the SSS Script Hello. I added some pretty pink pearls and gems from a past kit, some white gouache splatters, and the Carta Bella washi tape that came in the kit.
Here is the Atlantic Hearts Sketch:
I also created a card a couple of days ago:
This was for last week’s sketch challenge and you can see the details HERE.
Here is a video that I created with the alcohol pearl ink cards:
