Today is release day over at Concord and 9th! It’s always a favourite day of the month for me with tons of exciting and inspirational products! The entire release is available here and I have six cards for inspiration on what to do with the new stamps and dies! My first card is a beautiful housewarming card using the Floral Print Silhouette Bundle – I adore how easy it was to line everything up and that house is just too cute with that door opening up to reveal the background.  Concord…

Hi Crafters, It’s Justine back again here on the Birch Press Blog! Today I am creating a stained glass effect on my card using Alcohol Inks. Using Vellum paper helped me achieve that slightly muted but vibrant colour. I used a fairly thick vellum for this piece. Vellum is a non-porous surface that is super elegant when used alone, but it is perfect for any alcohol techniques as well. Step 1: Choose your ink colours. I used Purple Twilight, Wild Plum and Black Step 2: Shake your inks onto the vellum…

I wanted to create a subtle white on white detail (monochromatic) for…

Well, I decided to go into more detail about alcohol ink cardstock and Yupo paper – both papers are designed for alcohol inks but which one is better? I am using the Geode Stamp and Die bundle because these beautiful geodes are the most perfect stamps for alcohol inks!  Yupo paper comes in 5×7 sheets…

Today I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try out some Distress Oxide Ink colours that I don’t use on a regular basis. I was also really curious to try out the new Stacked Edges 2 Die by Pretty Pink Posh. I love honeycomb patterns so I knew this die would soon be a personal favourite. I went ahead and inked up my background using Evergreen Bough, Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover and sprayed some water on it. I die cut the honeycomb pattern three times along…
