Sparkly Alcohol Ink Backgrounds + GIVEAWAY + FREE GIFT

Hi! Today I am sharing another fun way to use alcohol inks… to create a sparkly background. This is the easiest way I have ever used alcohol inks and the results are fun!

For all of my backgrounds (except for the last card), I used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and Blending Solution on Tim Holtz Silver Sparkle Alcohol Ink Cardstock. The sparkle is perfection and it is soooooo easy to get great results. On each inked piece, I added a frame die cut with Stick It Adhesive Sheets.

My first card features the Simon Says Stamp Dahlia Frame Die and a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Hello Darling Stamp Set.

Here you can see the shine and texture. That pop of plum color is so fun!

This is the Simon Says Stamp Lotus Frame Die, along with another sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Hello Darling Stamp Set.

I was able to create these cards quickly… and get four backgrounds out of each piece of Tim Holtz Silver Sparkle Alcohol Ink Cardstock.

The Simon Says Stamp Poppy Frame Die is a favorite of mine…

This next one features the Simon Says Stamp Dahlia Corner Frame Die and Simon Says Stamp Hello Darling Stamp Set. This card is cut to be a bit smaller.

I created this last card using Simon Says Stamp Glitter Cardstock instead of Tim Holtz Silver Sparkle Alcohol Ink Cardstock. You can see it has a lot more sparkle, but the color gets a bit lost. But both options are fun!
