Christmas Grids with alcohol inks

These have already been featured on my other blog, but they haven't been added to this blog yet, so I'm just catching up.

I used alchol inks on glossy cardstock for my background. Stamped with versamark and embossed the Holly Stamp from Hero Arts in white and gold. Punched out squares and assembled them to give a different look to a card, and also the chance to use stamps that I don't have much inspiration with in any other way.

This card was featured on this blog today. Here I used white and silver embossing using a Decorative Ornament stamp from Hero Arts and Cranberry and Ginger alcohol inks on glossy paper.

Sketch design

A different lay-out - this time inspired by a sketch found here. As it does not follow the sketch completely I'm going to give this one another try.

Most of the images are Hero Arts and from my scrap basket. Thanks Sue, I am really enjoying this sentiment stamp. I don't usually use these colors but once in a while I don't mind them.

A grid in blue

This time I didn't leave any space between the squares and picked out all the blues I had which were in the minority, but still enough to puzzle together another grid.

This was my little Sunday entertainment.

Grid with pink and brown tints

Another grid card made with scraps, punched out squares from unused projects.

This time I stamped on the pp using the Mix and Match mini stamp set from Hero Arts with brown ink.

Mix and match and added sewing

Another way to use up all the snippets and cut-outs which need to find a home. The added feature to this card is sewing, which I love to do ...
