So while creating and playing with my Alcohol Ink and Gina K. Fancy Foils, I decide I wanted to try using Gina K.’s Amalgam Ink on one of the panels. Well, I inked up my stamp and after I stamped it, I though… it didn’t work. But what I didn’t realize, was that what ever the Amalgam Ink was made of, it reacted to the Alcohol Inks. I was able to do a Ink Lift with Gina K. Amalgam Inks. I was so excited to share it with you! Here is a video I made to share the fun with you all! I do hope you will try it soon! 🙂

Here are two cards I did some ink lifting on!

Up Next is Hugs and Wildflowers Stamp Set and matching Dies! I love creating with this New Set by: Lisa. I wanted it to look like watercolor and a bit whimsical so I did off set on the flowers line art and the solid image.

Hi Everyone and Welcome! Thank you so much for joining us today on our hop! Today we are Featuring a couple of new stamp sets! We have the New Set By: Melanie Muenchinger – ” Puppies Galore” This set… is Lots of fun and sweet puppies can be made with it. I love that you can change the ears and have a different puppy.
