One Stamp Two Ways

Hi everyone, it’s Cheryl here with you today. I thought, for a change, I would create two cards using the one stamp.

My first card is very traditional. The second card is so far from traditional, it’s not funny. But I thought it was worth sharing anyway.

For both cards I’ve used the Couture Creations Poinsettia Greetings set from the Stamp & Colour Outline Stamp Sets. For the first card, as you will see, I’ve coloured it using the Couture Creations Twin Tip Alcohol Markers, and for the second, I’ve used the Couture Creations Alcohol Inks. As you’ll see, two totally different results.

Each card has been mounted on a red card base and a mat of gold glitter card.

For the stamping, I used the Stamp & Colour Outline Ink Pad in black.

 

 

Card #1 – coloured

Colours Used:

220 – Wine Red

205 – Pale Red

187 – Geranium

7507 – Warm Gold *I initially used this colour, but then coloured over it.

377 – Olive Green

356 – Grass Green

917 – Baby Yellow

106 – Light Yellow

You will also need to use blending card when colouring with alcohol markers.

You must use blending paper for alcohol markers, otherwise the colours will bleed. Likewise, you also need to use the correct ink for stamping, otherwise you will end up with the black ink (or whatever colour you use) on your markers. *All items used are listed below.

 

Card #2 – alcohol inks

Products Used:

CO728495 –  Alcohol Ink – Golden Age – Khaki – 12ml

CO728484 – Alcohol Ink – Golden Age – Gold – 12ml

CO728494 – Alcohol Ink – Golden Age – Golden Age – Apple – 12ml

CO728489 – Alcohol Ink – Golden Age – Golden Age – Cardinal – 12ml

CO727337 – Alcohol Ink Blending Solution 50ml

CO727343 – Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool

You must use synthetic paper for alcohol inks, otherwise they won’t move around properly. If making cards, you’ll get four standard cards out of one sheet, which gives you forty card-sized pieces per pack.

If you haven’t used alcohol inks before, I suggest you check out my recent YouTube video:

 

 

For this card, I laid down all the alcohol inks and allowed it to dry. Then I stamped the image. I added pearls to all the places where berries were shown on the image – I didn’t have any red pearls, so used the red alcohol marker to colour them. (If you do this, let them dry for a few minutes so it doesn’t come off on your fingers.) If you have them, red pearls are far easier.

As I said earlier, this type of card is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I rather like it. If you’re not one to worry about “colouring outside the lines” it might work for you too.

To finish each card off, I used the greeting that came with the Poinsettia Greetings stamp set. Both were heat embossed, and gold glitter card mounted behind the greeting.
