SSS Alcohol Ink Backgrounds and April Card Kit Winner

Hi everyone!

I'm stopping by today to share a few cards made with a number of Simon Says Stamp Dies and Ranger's Alcohol Inks. I've officially jumped on the Alcohol Ink band wagon...and thought I'd pull out my old Alcohol Inks to see if they were still good. I'm happy to report that they still worked just fine! :) Read through to the end of the post to find out who the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit winner is!

Here are today's cards:

For each card I took Yupo Paper and used two different colours of Alcohol Inks along with Snow Cap Mixative and Alcohol Blending Solution to create my backgrounds. I moved the Alcohol Inks around with the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer Tool. Once dry, I diecut the pieces with the rectangle from Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies and added them to matching pieces of cardstock. I diecut Simon's Balloons, Talk Bubbles, and Hearts from vellum, anding black diecut sentiments and shapes to them. (All supplies listed at the end of the post). I adhered these pieces to the card fronts, placing my adhesive behind the black diecuts so it would be hidden. Finally, I trimmed off the vellum that hung over the edges of the cards.
