Blooming Riotous Birthdays

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here today. So. how do you like our anniversary release? What’s your must have? I am sure many of you already have some of the sets in your hand already.

I don’t know about you, but for me, pretty new sets can really get my mojo going. That and combine with my excitement of trying out new stuff, I’ve been having lots of fun creating.

I made a couple of cards today. This happened by accident as I don’t like being wasteful. Hah! Let’s start with the 1st card.

I started by creating the background using alcohol ink. I dropped various color of alcohol ink on yupo paper, let it dry and then stamped the Riotous Wildflower stamp and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Once that done, I line up the “happy” and “birthday” dies from Bold General Greeting Words set. Trim the panel and adhere to the card base. Easy peasy. Now, I could just stop there, but since I have these pretty happy  birthday letters from the first cut, I just had to use them and make a second card.

With the letters being so colorful, I don’t want to add much of anything else on the card. The white background help make the letters stand out. Then I simply added some Morning Dew NuvoDrops for simple embellishment.

I am a bit obsessed playing with alcohol ink at the moment and let  me just say, many of The Ton stamps works beautifully with this technique. Pretty sure I’ll be sharing more cards using this in the future.

Well peeps, hope you enjoy today’s cards. Stay tune,we have new challenge coming up on Feb. 1 and I hope you will join us and play along . Till next time. Cheers….
