ID: MC Jan16 - Easel Alcohol Ink Splatter - ECD It's a Party & Celebrate - Enjoy Your Day HB card
size: 5.25"w x 6.5"h (easel closed)

Created: January 16, 2016

They say everything old is new again... I made alcohol ink splatter backgrounds eons ago and came across something that reminded me of them... so here it is again BIG GRIN.

You can see some straw art I made in 2009 HERE; a card I made in 2009, was published in Just Cards issue #16 released January 2010, Happy Birthday category HERE; and another card from 2009 published in Just Cards Special Issue Birthdays 2010 released March 2010 HERE 

I'm using two of the newest 2016 dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "It's A Party" & "Celebrate" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE & HERE)

I'm also using a couple sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design  

("Twirl & Enjoy" 3pce set); ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set) 


I scored and folded my mango toned  card. Cut using my circle scissor then scored and folded the front panel to create my easel. Cut another circle from the fuchsia cardstock.

Created my alcohol splatter background on glossy paper (see pics below) using "Butterscotch", "Pool" & "Raspberry". Dripped some of one color onto the paper and immediately blow through a straw to splatter it (you can use a spray dust tool). Dropped another color and blew and repeated till satisfied.

Stamped the 2 sizes of a firecracker type stamp (gg designs) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Used the circle cutter to cut my circle. Adhered to a mango circle. Punched a couple notches in the circle and wrapped some blue twine around it twice. Adhered to card front. Wrapped the twine around two of my fingers several times to create the bow. Adhered using a hot glue tool, and then adhered the round jewel.

Die cut the "It's a Party" from blue textured cardstock and some white cardstock. Adhered the two layers together slightly off set to add contrast. Adhered to outer edge of circle.

Step 1

On the floor: Stamped the sentiment using the black and clear embossed. 

Stamped the firecrackers using Versamark and embossed with Hot Stuff "Turquoise Shimmer embossing powder.

Die cut the "Celebrate" from fuchsia cardstock and white cardstock, adhering the two layers together slightly off set. Scored through the letters to create a fold, adhered to floor as my stopper.

Stamped the "Happy Birthday" several times around the edge of the circle using the black and clear embossed.
