Alcohol Inks and LaBlanche!

Hello Bloggers! Happy Saturday!

Let's start out with some blog candy!
The winner from Wednesday's blog of A Project By Roree Rumph Using Pink Paislee and Cricut is: Rachel! Congrats! Just email Fran@SimonSaysStamp.com with your information and the title of the blog you won from!

I have a GREAT video to share with you today from Christine at Scraptime! It involved LaBlanche products and alcohol inks. LaBlanche offers really unique lines of stamps and papers. Their paper has a special coating- and is perfect for using with alcohol inks (like you'll see in this video!), and their stamps are etched out of silicone. The silicone not only helps the stamps have intricate details, but it also just feels really neat when you're using it!


Christine used her technique in two different ways for these cards. The first card has a rich color mix of Meadow, Cranberry, and Silver Mixative on her blending tool. The second card is Meadow and Cranberry again, but with the Snow Cap White Mixative to mute the colors and make it a little softer. I love both, and how they each carry their own tone!

I hope you enjoy the techniques here, and fall in love with the LaBlanche line just like we have! Make sure you check out Scraptime for more awesome videos like this one!
