Ann created a birthday card for her best friend using a Tim Holtz Cocktails Blueprint stamp set, Distress Inks, and Alcohol Inks.

Anna-Karin created a card with a bright background made with Ranger’s Alcohol Ink. It was stamped with two background stamps by Simon Says Stamp, namely the Solid Grid and the Open Grid.

Barbara loves to have fun with alcohol inks. She has done two projects using tons of Ranger Alcohol Inks. To complete the two projects she also used Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stencils Halftone and Hearts, Tim Holtz Sizzix Stacked Tiles Hearts, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Texture Paste Translucent and Idea-ology Paper Dolls Portraits.

Cheiron created an Alcohol Ink panel with Ranger Alcohol inks. Then stamped images from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Media Marks 1 and Media Marks 2 Stamps using Distress Archival Inks. Then she cut the Make A Wish from the Bold Text 1 dies and inlaid the letters to make them stand out from her background.

Kath chose to have a play with Ranger Alcohol Inks and Alchemy Alcohol Pearl Ink on a panel of Tim Holtz Yupo White HeavyStock. She used images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dearly Departed stamped with Alcohol Lift Ink  and Black Soot Distress Archival and added Idea-ology Remnant Rubs and Big Chat Stickers.

Lols  does enjoy a thimbleful of red occasionally so this was the perfect challenge to ink up the wine glass from the Tim Holtz Wine Blueprint Cling Stamp Set. She stamped the image twice, so that she could 3D the glass bowl, and colored with Copic Markers. She used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and a Tiles Stencil for the background and then splattered with ink and added a few sequins.

Macarena made a masculine card with a vibrant green bottle of beer using Tim Holtz Blueprints Beer stamp, Countdown die set and Distress Embossing Glaze Peeled Paint applied on the numbers. The sentiment means “Cheers”.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Oriental Garden 12 X 12 Paper on the background and decorated it with Stamperia ATELIER DES ARTS Die Cuts and Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps BEER BLUEPRINT.

Sandra made her mom a card for her 75th birthday using her favorite colors in Alcohol Ink, like RaspberryPurple TwilightAquaAquamarine. To give it a shimmer she also used Gunmetal and Rose Alloy 

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
