Good morning everyone. Today I’m sharing a card using The Stamp Market Hugs and Hello stamp set. This stamp set includes the prettiest paper hugs and hello sentiments. As soon as I saw the stamp set I fell in love with it. The contrast between the large bold letters and the thin line letters are stunning together. They are also very easy to layer as well.
I’ve been using alcohol inks a lot more lately so I had a few backgrounds ready for a card. For this card I used my Ranger Pearl Alcohol inks in rainbow order to create this background. I will say that these inks do more a little bit differently on a card compared to their counterparts. Assuming that the pearl additive slightly changes the ink and makes it flow differently across my paper.
Regardless of the difference in properties I am still a HUGE fan of the pearl alcohol inks. I mean you can achieve shimmer and color all in one ink. That’s a bonus for me and I’m sure it is for you as well.
So on to the card I made. Like I mentioned I already had this panel made so all I needed to do was add the right sentiment. This paper hugs sentiment is large enough to really work well on this background. With this sentiment you really don’t need anything else. Just for some added blink, I attached two heart glossy enamels from Pink and Main to anchor the sentiment on the card.
After pulling the sentiment off of the background to get ready to stamp, there was a slight transfer of color onto to the stamp itself. After heat embossing it with arctic white embossing powder from InkOn3 I still had residue on the sentiment. However I’m completely okay with it.
Here’s a closeup of how the paper looks. It’s so pretty in real like. I will definitely be using the pearl alcohol inks again to make backgrounds for my card.
