Beautiful Love Die and Alcohol Inks
by Marybeth Lopez


Hello and Happy February to you all! I have a new technique ( For Me) that I am using today. I recently learned about Alcohol Ink watching a video 

by .  Jennifer McGuire I highly recommend you visit her blog and the link I gave you to see how to do this. It was so new to me that I forgot to take pictures as I was making the papers.

All the dies I used are from Poppystamps : Whittle Mouse, Simple Thinking of  You and the beautiful Seed Love Collage I layered the Love die twice for a bit more dimension.


Above and below is a picture of one of the papers I created using Alcohol inks, each one will be  different, just play with it. I ended up adding alcohol to my glass work surface , I had lots of leftover ink on the glass . I turned my Yupo paper( the ink moves around on this paper) over and placed it on the drips from the first paper with ink, that's  how I ended up with a very soft look to my card and no wasted inks.


If you are interested in learning please go to the pro.... Jennifer McGuire.... Linked for you above. It's way more fun that I thought but it is a bit messy.



I sure had fun making the background of this card and I love the added gold shimmer.  Poppystamps dies toped this card oh so many choices to make, I wanted to keep the dies white so they would stand out on the inked paper. 

Thank you for the visit today . I hope you have a crafty day my friends.






Wow Marybeth, your background is amazing! This is a marvelous card!

Poppystamps has some of the cutest dies and Whittle Mouse is no exception. Nicely done with this combination of inks and dies!

Hi Marybeth, I love your background, I still haven't tried this technique yet, but it always looks stunning. The Whittle animals are all so cute, and this mouse is gorgeous, I love their faces. I love this !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Both gorgeous and adorable.

Amazing background--love those colors! All the die cuts are fantastic, especially that sweet little whittle mouse!

So pretty, great backgrounds with the technique, great with your die cuts

So pretty, Marybeth! Once you play with alcoholic inks, you can't get enough of them! Next you have to try rubbing gold or silver foil over those spots that stay sort of thicker and not quite dry. It's a whole new level of amazing! I love how you simply added these fabulous dies so both the dies and the background shine!! Hugs, Darnell

Dreamy backgrounds, Marybeth ... and just the sweetest dies to dress them up ... what a fabulous card! Hugs, Anita :)

Your STUNNING BG made those FAB dies POP!
