Gorgeous Leaves Thanksgiving Card–Alcohol Blends Technique

Gorgeous Leaves Thanksgiving Card

I love the background of this card. It features the rubbing alcohol and Stampin’ Blends technique. See the video below for a look at how this technique works.

Basically, choose the Stampin’ Blends colors you want to use. Scribble or color on a piece of Vellum Card Stock. For this card, I used Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. Then, with a paint brush, drip 91 percent rubbing alcohol onto the colored parts. Watch as the ink spreads and merges to make a cool background. Once it’s dry, you can use the vellum for a variety of card-making purposes. You’ll get a different result each time you try this. Experiment and have fun with it!

In addition, this card uses:

I hope you’ve found some inspiration in today’s project. Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop and leave a comment. You could win a Hello Dear Friend card kit.

Congratulations to last month’s winner: Laura Klinkler.

Happy Thanksgiving in Gold

I’m sharing a Thanksgiving card in gold for today’s Team Stamp It’s October 2020 Blog Hop.

Happy Thanksgiving in Gold

Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Cards and Envelopes provided the inspiration for my card today. Find them on page 51 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. You receive a package of 10 cards and coordinating metallic gold envelopes for $10. These Very Vanilla bases feature gold detailing around the edges, perfect to frame a photo or stamped image. They help you create quick and easy cards that are beautiful, too!

To make the leaf accents, I grabbed the leaf from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. I heat embossed the leaf with Gold Embossing Powder. With the sponge daubers, I then added different colors of ink to the embossed image. The colors used include: Crushed Curry, Blackberry Bliss, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive. I wiped away any excess ink with a paper towel.

With the coordinating leaf die from the Nature’s Roots Dies, I die cut with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and adhered three leaves to the card with Glue Dots.

The sentiment comes from the Banner Year stamp set and is stamped with Blackberry Bliss. The Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels add some blingy accents.
