Video Friday – Glossy Paper-Alcohol Ink Blending

Hi and Welcome to another Video Friday!

On Tuesday I was having my usual Facebook fix when I came upon this great card by Maria Willis.

blogger-image--196932548I love the vibrant colours that she has used, it just brought this big smile across my face. I had to find out more about how Maria had achieved this card, so followed the links to here Blog –

 “Cardbomb”. Please go and check it out….this one is now on my “Favorite Blogs” list…..

So Click HERE

or here is the link

This card was created as part of a Blog Hop for Creating Kindness (around the world) International Design Team.

Maria says “If I had to describe my stamping style in one word… I think I would choose, “Techniques.” I absolutely love to experiment with Stampin’ Up! products and I love to try new techniques.”

Maria’s blog sounds like one I’m going to be visiting on a regular bases.

So I had to give this a try……


As you can see it was a bit messy….and Maria does say at one point that if you don’t want to spray everything with ink cover it up….I should have listened to that part. LOL….

I have ink everywhere including ME!

But it was so much fun …I kept on going…I think I ended up with about 8 pieces…some good and some are just ready for the bin.

BUT…don’t be too quick to throw in the trash as once its dry and when you trim down may end up with something pretty amazing.

The card stock used is the NEW Glossy White Cardstock 144241 and I cut the sheet into quarters.

To get the beautiful, bright and vibrant colours on the Glossy White Cardstock, Maria mixed rubbing alcohol with Stampin’ Up! Ink refills. This also gave some wonderful blending effects as well.

Maria goes through a couple of different techniques and I’m sure like me you can’t wait to get hold of some Rubbing Alcohol and have a go yourself..

Well here’s how my card turned out…


I think it looks good …don’t you?

So here’s the video…enjoy, can’t wait to see what you end up with.
