Hey everybody! I’ve had some great fun in my studio today and have another Trinity Stamps inspiration project to share this evening. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I used the gorgeous First Bloom stamp set with coordinating First Bloom die set along with Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix for this note card featuring alcohol ink on vellum. I rarely ever use a stamped image that hasn’t been colored but did so on this card because it really pops on the alcohol ink background! To tell you how this old brain works, a friend posted a card featuring alcohol ink on vellum the other day and I cannot remember who it was or which social media outlet I saw it on. But this technique has been on my ‘to-do’ list for a long while and I’d like my friend (if she’s reading this) to know that she inspired me to go ahead and give it a whirl! So glad I did because it turned out beautifully on the first try!
I created the alcohol ink on vellum panel and while it was drying, I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a thin stitched frame. Using the First Bloom stamp set, I stamped the main floral image in teal ink and then die cut it with the coordinating First Bloom die set. I flipped the alcohol panel over, adhered the frame to it, and adhered them to the card base. I adhered the floral to the background and added some bling from the Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix. I REALLY love these embellishment mixes – the gemstones are absolutely gorgeous!
I die cut the inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Teal cardstock, and adhered them together. I embellished the white panel with leftover strips of the alcohol background and teal cardstock, and added a stamped and die cut element in the lower left corner. Since this is a note card, I left the panel blank to write a custom message.
And one more look… really loving how this turned out and I hate that I waited so long to try it! The results are every bit as amazing as they are on Yupo paper!
