My project will be featured over on Instagram (with more details on my personal blog) but here’s a little peek…

… and a bit of a story!  The theme this month is a fond one for me, as it takes me back to my roots and the VERY first projects that got me interested in rubber stamps- and that was making my own Christmas wrapping paper!  It was back in the early 90’s and my grandparents gave me a rubber stamp of a cow with heart shaped spots on it. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but I collected cows so I thought it was kinda cool.  Shortly after that, my aunt showed me a catalog for a company called PSX (show of hands if you remember them!) and I found a little holly stamp with heart shaped berries.  These two stamps, together with a green ink pad and a roll of kraft paper from the post office became my Christmas wrapping paper!  After that, I learned about gold embossing and started getting more stamps & more inks… and the rest is history.

I made my own wrapping paper on Kraft paper for many years and that’s probably why I still love it so much as a card base so often even today!   You’ll see that I’m sharing more love for the Sketch Greenery stamps & I’ve paired it with some greenery & berries from the Festive Bouquet die set along with a sweet sentiment by Anita Jeram.

The first stop on the hop will be Kia– and if you get lost along the way, you can check back here to find a full list of everyone in the hop!  Have fun, I’ll see you soon when you get to the Instagram portion of the hop 🙂

Here’s the full list:

Alcohol Ink Flowers – Prize Giveaway!

Sunday, March 28th, 2021


Happy Funday Sunday!  I am so excited that today is my day for the Scrap’N Stamp Present Parade Giveaway!  All you have to do for your chance to WIN the alcohol ink and blower prize pack is to leave a comment down below or over at the YouTube video tutorial for today’s blog!

Now onto today’s cards!  I have been guilty of not using a lot of my supplies so, today I pulled out one of my least used products which is my alcohol inks.  I must admit that they totally intimidate me and I am not always sure how best to use them.  So, I decided I would set some time aside to just play and have fun.

Check out the video below to see the tutorial on how I made some beautiful alcohol ink backgrounds including those that look like stunning florals!


I hope you enjoyed today’s video and that you are inspired to create your own alcohol ink flowers!
