Alcohol Inks Heat Embossing Techniques

Stamping on Alcohol Inked Background

I am giddy to be guesting with the Foiled Fox again today and this time, I have an alcohol inked background to share with all today. I have just started my adventure with alcohol inks and am learning so much! I have my first technique video up on my youtube channel with the basics and have a huge list of other techniques I am going to try! An Alcohol Inks series in in the works…..

Using some Yupo Paper, Alcohol Inks and a gorgeous stamp set  from The Foiled Fox, I was able to easily create this card.

I stamped the trees from the Snowy Village stamp set with Jet Black Archival ink, sprinkled on some clear embossing powder and carefully heat set. Working on Yupo paper is the best paper to use for Alcohol inks but it does warp easily. So carefully move your heat gun around as quickly as possible and you should be good to go. I finished it off with a word die cut from glitter paper.

Be sure to head on over to The Foiled Fox and check it out!

  3. Beautiful! When I first started in paper crafting 5 years ago, I bought quite a few of the alcohol inks, but did not use them very much. Now that they have become popular again, I am excited! Thanks for your inspiration!

    Not only are you showing us crafters how to create alcohol backgrounds but you are demonstrating how to use these in designs for cards too. Fantastic, thank you so much. :O)

    Did you set the alcohol background before you did the stamps?
