Graduation Cards with Alcohol Inks on Yupo

 Hello!  My son is graduating from high school this year, so I made a couple cards since I know he will be attending some graduation parties of his friends.  

I made this alcohol ink background on yupo. I do not write down the colors, but I know I used at least one ink with shimmers.  Unfortunately, these were extremely hard to capture well on camera, so use your imagination!  They really look good!

I then used a NBUS die and NBUS stamp set, and an old glitter cardstock. In fact, I had to purchase these supplies because I really didn’t have anything for a graduation card!

I’m so pleased how these turned out.

Here are the supplies I used:

Impression Obsession DIE296-T - Grads Tossing

Taylor Ed Expressions stamp set - Grad Grumplings (sentiments)

DCWV Twinkle Glints stack paper pad

I would love to enter the SimonSaysStamp’s Monday Challenge - Alcohol, Drink or Ink.

And also entering the NBUS Challenge!

Thanks so much for visiting and for your kind comments!  I have now posted more blog posts in 2022 than I did in the entire year of 2021.  It looks like 2021 was not kind for many blogs, as I was just going through all the challenge blogs I used to keep track of and there are so many that aren’t operating anymore.  

Also, I hope to keep asking this, but if you have an Instagram, can you comment with your IG Handle, or find me heidi_mylittlestampingblog so I can follow you back!  I feel like missing most of 2021 made me miss a lot of people changing to IG.  Thanks!
