CAS Mix Up January Liquid Colours

Wishing all of you creative stampers a very Happy and Healthy 2017.   The CAS Mix Up January Challenge is Stamping + Liquid Colours + Your Choice.

I used Stamping, Alcohol Inks on Yupo paper and my choice..Die Cuts

Here is a Close Up to show all the beautiful Alcohol Ink Colours....

I am sharing a wonderful Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper Video by our very talented Loll (Stamping with Loll).  I made my background piece using Ranger Alcohol Inks: Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange and Watermelon and spritzed with Blending Solution on a sheet of foil.  Then smooshed my Yupo paper...just like Loll.  I spritzed the remaining ink with more Ranger Blending Solution and smooshed another piece.  The 2nd piece turned out lighter.  Both backgrounds are very pretty.

I then took my 1st alcohol ink sample and die cut using my new SU "Sunshine Wishes Dies".  The heart, love and flower are from the die set.  There are 7 dies in the set.

I then die cut my SU Whisper White card front using my CUTplorations "Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies" using the largest die 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

I placed my card front in my MISTI and arranged the SU "Sunshine Sayings" stamps and heart, love and flower dies.  Next I stamped my SU splat image from the same set (behind the heart) using Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral.  Next stamped the sentiments using Archival Jet Black ink.

Added my Alcohol ink die cuts and Swan Lake Little Things sequins using SU Fine Tip Pen.  I placed a large clear block over my sequins for a secure attachment.  This works great!

I then attached my card front to my SU Whisper White Thick card base.  This card will be used as a Thinking of You card,  but could be used for several different occasions.

I hope you can join our CAS Mix Up January Liquid Colours Challenge.   There are Amazing samples by all the DT and our very talented Guest Designer Trina (My Crafting Closet)  You have until January 24th to play along with us.  Don't forget to make your card Clean and Simple.

Happy New Year and Happy Stamping my friends.  Hugs


  1. This is so cool Nancy. LOVE the smooshed alcohol inks ... those colours are AMAZING. I got a lot of AI's for Christmas and I bet those colours are among them ... can't wait to try this combo. Love how you've added the splat in the background. Works perfectly with your beautiful heart die-cut. xx

  2. How wonderful Nancy ... I love that heart and love the colours and design of your card.

  3. Another beautiful alcohol inked piece, Nancy! Perfect colors for these die cuts! Love the splats behind the heart that add extra interest!

  4. Awesome CAS card. Love your die cuts from your AI smooshed piece. I will have to try this AI technique one day. 😊

  5. Wow, a fantastic design, super CAS! Your colour combo is spectacular, truly a beautiful vibrant creation.

  6. Fabulous colours and technique - you did a great job on the smooshed alcohol inks. Love the layout with the split sentiment, the hearts over the splat, and the scattering of sequins.

  7. Wonderful colors behind and on your die cuts Nancy - the stitched edge on the white gives detail while keeping it CAS - such a bright happy design! Julia xx

  11. What a pretty blend of colors on the crisp white background! The ink colors in your "splat" are a perfect match, too. Loved seeing your cards is person.

    1. We did have so much fun on our play day. I LOVED your major reorganized stamp room, Leslie. You had so many good ideas. I am now getting inspired to reorganize my room :-) Happy New Year my friend. Hugs, Nancy
