Alcohol Ink Pop up Vase
Hiya! Kristina here, and I'm back with another project for you! There are so many great new die sets in the latest Scrappy Tails Crafts release. I was having a really hard time deciding which one to use...so I used three of them in one project! Here's a quick peek of my project. Then I'll tell you about my process and show you the rest of my project!
I was feeling in the mood to play around with alcohol inks to make some fun backgrounds. I didn't have any real plans, I just grabbed some colors that I thought would mix well and create a pretty coral. I used some pinks and reds.
When it was almost dry, I grabbed a gold foil and rubbed it in some of the still sticky places on the panel. Then, I created a green panel.
I left this panel without the gold flecks, I used green and blue alcohol inks to create this one.
And now for the fun part, I die cut everything to create the vase. Using the Pop up Vase die set, I cut two base panels and three bridges from heavy weight white cardstock. I cut the decorative panels from the coral and green alcohol ink backgrounds. Check out how to assemble the vase in Sabrina's video HERE.
Now it was time for lots of die cutting using the Outlined Rose Assortment dies and the Assorted Leaves dies. Good news, assorted leaves are back in stock! I die cut everything from my left over green and coral alcohol ink backgrounds, I used every last inch of them!
Here are the outlined roses layered onto their shadow layers. I also cut all of the solid flowers and leaves out of a matching cardstock. Then I glued them to the back of the alcohol ink pieces. I didn't want the white of the paper to be super distracting. Plus, it gave the pieces more stability.
And in this picture you can see that I added a simple "For You" sentiment using word dies from the Slimline Pop Up Box Gift Card dies. Oh, hey, I guess that means I used FOUR different die sets! I cut the words out of cream-colored cardstock. I glued them to gold foil cardstock and hand cut them out. I attached them to strips of clear acetate and added them to the vase arrangement.
Here's a look at the other side profile, it's incredible how this is a complete 360 design!
