Create a Fall Card with a Fun Technique

Rubbing Alcohol Fall Birthday Card

You love creating handmade greeting cards with rubber stamps, ink, and paper. But sometimes, you enjoy the challenge of using a new technique to give your creations a different look.

In today’s post, I show you how to create a cool background with rubbing alcohol and Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Blends. Be sure to watch the video below to see exactly how it’s done.

Create a Fall Card with a Fun Technique

  • Start with a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Vellum Card Stock, cut at 5 1/4 x 4 inches
  • Cut a piece of Adhesive Sheets to 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
  • Adhere the Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Vellum Card Stock
  • With your choice of Stampin’ Blend (alcohol-based blending markers) colors, scribble or draw on top of the Vellum
  • Fill a Water Painter with 91 percent rubbing alcohol
  • Squirt drops of rubbing alcohol on your scribbles, making sure you’ve covered most of the ink
  • You can let it dry as is or blow on it to move the ink around
  • Let it dry (it doesn’t take long)
  • You can then die cut or use any way you wish as a background

Rubbing Alcohol Fall Congratulation Card

For the two cards above, I die cut the Vellum background with a Stitched Rectangle Die and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine in the Leaf Fall 3D Embossing Folder. I then layered it on a piece of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock also die cut with a Stitched Rectangle. The sentiments come from the Peaceful Moments stamp set found in Stampin’ Up!’s 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.

I love this technique because you get a different result each time. Switch out the colors to change the theme or holiday. Click here to see another example of this technique. (Please note: Some of the products used may be retired, but other stamp sets can be used.)
