Ornaments and Pine Cones

The background was created by blending alcohol inks. This means that each background will be unique. 

Stamps: Ornamental Pine, Work of Art, Endless Wishes
Paper: Tempting Turquoise A-2, Glossy White 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
Ink: Alcohol Ink Blend, Tempting Turquoise, StazOn Timber Brown, Gold
Technique: Heat Embossing
Accessories: Alcohol Ink Applicator, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Adhesive

The alcohol inks I blended were blue, yellow, brown, and red. You drop each color onto the felt applicator that has slightly been dipped in alcohol. Try to keep the color separate. You then lightly spray your glossy paper as well and then apply the colors and see the magic. You set your background to dry for a bit. Then stamp, heat emboss it, and assemble. 

In retrospect, I would stamp my sentiment first to make sure the snowflakes would not interfere with it. 

Although these stamp sets have been retired, you can easily use any stamp set you currently have in your supplies. The alcohol ink blending is easy and exciting to use. Have some fun.
