Retro Sketches 108

Back again with another birthday card. This one is for our middle nephew. 
I used some Heidi Swapp specialty card stock sprayed it with her color shine in mustard color. On e that was dry I mounted the slate grey paper and stamped the happy birthday in lagoon  on white. My newest favorite is the shimmer trim from Close to my Heart. This card features the teal, is so sparkly and is pretty sticky on the back. I think I just need black to complete my collection. :)

The layout for this card comes from Retro Sketches 108

Alcohol inks!

Here are a couple of cards I made after attending a tag class with Chelsey at Personal Touch Scrapbooking. One of the tags was using alcohol inks on glossy paper to create beautiful backgrounds. 

I used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks (Eggplant, Pool, Silver) and the blending solution to create the soft spot for the sentiment. Stamps used were random stamps from Unity Stamps Co.
