Hi, there!

I recently received my alcohol lift-ink pad in the mail.  I do love the technique  and results achieved after making two cards!  Two in one cards...so fun! I'm entering my card over at Seize The Birthday

I already had an alcohol ink background made from several months ago and inked up two stamps.  And, here is my first card...

The bird stamp is from Impression Obsession and the circle stamp is from SU.  Rubber stamps seem to work the best.  I watched videos from Tim Holtz and Jennifer McGuire.  This card will be going to my friend, Linda, who loves the color purple.

Next up, is my second card.  The ink lifted from the alcohol inked panel above was then stamped onto a white card base.  I thought...wow...this really works...ha!  Wonderful color was picked up from the first card!  Satin ribbon bows, gems, and die cut sentiments from Sugar Pea to finish the card.  And, here is my second card...

Well, I need to make a baby card next, so back to the craft table.  Hope you all are having a great week!  Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care!



  1. Great background on your lovely cards. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  2. Wow, these turned out awesome, Maria! This is such a fun technique and how cool is it to get two finished products from one technique? Love your combo of the bird image with those ornate circles! The little gems for the bird eyes is absolutely adorable, too!

  3. Oh Maria these are stunning!! I just bought the ink pad to try this... I adore your alcohol BG and both your cards are so beautiful... I must give this a try!

  4. Super cool, Maria! Love the AI colors you used & the images are perfect for the technique! I've got that AI lift pad coming hoping I'll finally use my AIs!
