Hello friends! Katy here with 7 easy Hanukkah cards. I plan to send these to my Aunt who is Jewish to share with her friends and other family who celebrate the holiday.
I did several techniques in todays video; Heat Embossing, Alcohol Ink Background and Alcohol Lift for a second background plus a little hot foiling.
The video below has all the details. If you have trouble watching here on the blog, click here to watch on Youtube.
Here is an up close photo of each of the cards. I love how each of these turned out and I hope you do as well. Below each photo I will list the products used.
- Durabright White Paper Or Yupo Paper
- Ranger Alcohol Ink Monsoon
- Alcohol Lift Ink Pad
- Heavyweight White Cardstock
- Stardream Metallic Lapis Lazuli (Blue Frame)
This card I used the Alcohol Ink Lift. This one didn’t turn out the way I thought it would. I initially did my stamping with the alcohol ink and loved it and I had the idea to put some Distress Embossing Glaze because I thought it would bring out the background, sadly it did not. I went with it tho and it turned out ok. I ended up doing it again which you will see below.
- Snow Willow Card Stock (Frame)
This is the Alcohol Ink take 2.
And this is what the Alcohol Lift Ink stamping looks like. I love how this looked when I did it initially and that’s why I did it again. I stamped both times on the Snow Willow card stock. I think the shimmer added to the watercolor look of the alcohol ink stamping.
This one is simple with navy cardstock and silver embossing powder. The shine bright sentiment is a hot foil plate and the frame is Stardream Metallic Silver cardstock. I love how clean and simple this turned out.
Using the same layout I embossed in a metallic blue embossing powder and added another hot foil sentiment.
And this card was inspired by a Hallmark card in my search for Hanukkah card inspiration. I used White Satin Pearl embossing powder and another hot foil sentiment and I love, love, love how clean and bright this is.
That’s a wrap my friends! Thanks for stopping by.
