Hello, friends! I’m so excited to be part of the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Altenew Exclusive: Dainty Sprig release today! I have a fun card sharing alcohol ink coloring with heat embossing. This collaboration set is exclusive and limited edition so once it sells out, it will no longer be available. If you love florals and uplifting sentiments, this set is for you!

For this card, I started by stamping the image with clear embossing ink and heat-embossing with gold glitter embossing powder on heavyweight Yupo paper. I added alcohol blending solution and drops of alcohol ink to “color” the image. I used cotton swabs to help move around some of the ink. I’m not one to have much control with alcohol ink, but this was fun to try! I heat-embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder. All products linked below.
