Altenew Sparkle and Shine IG Hop

Hi, everyone! Hope you all liked the IG hop we prepared for you. I enjoyed creating cards with lots of shimmer and shine in them. Here’s a quick rundown of how I made my cards for this IG hop. I tried my best to capture the shine in my photos.

I used the following alcohol inks on Yupo paper: Teal Cave, Emerald, Desert Night and Persian Blue. Love the contrast of soft and vibrant colors. This is the beauty of alcohol inks… you really don’t know what the outcome will be!!! I added more shine by using Decofoil gold and Piñata gold for more contrast with the blues. The diecuts were also covered with Gold foil washi tape.

Look at that shine!!!! I really love the gold and green combo.

For the next card, I used Decofoil Tranfser Gel on the Just Leaves die cuts. When the gel became transparent, I added gold foil. I also used the Essential Sentiment strip diecut as a stencil to add gel onto the hot pink cardstock so that the letters will appear in gold.

I just recently added a new toy to my tools and wanted to try if foiling will work using ordinary dies. Take a look at the outcome!!!

I loved how very detailed and intricate the outcome was!!! Some areas had excess foil but I really didn’t mind cause it added texture to the card front.

Although these are CAS cards, I love how the shimmer gives the cards an elegant and classy look. I will definitely be creating more of these cards.
