Loll Inspird Me

I recently posted a card made by Jane that I had CASED.  Today I want to share a card I CASED from another blog friend Loll, of Stamping with Loll

I have been following Loll's journey with alcohol inks and she originally inspired me to break open my bottles. Loll's blog is Stamping with Loll. and it is well worth popping over to take a look. Her work is beautiful! Here is Loll's card...


I  took some of the left over snippets from my Yupo background creations and created a wee scene with my "Never Before Used Schtuff", my Horse Sleigh Landscape, Memory Box die. NBUS for short. I cut the sleigh from a snippet of white glitter paper.

To ensure a non lumpy focal point, I ran the die through the bottom of the Alcohol ink portion and then lined up the two die cut edges for a smooth edged scene. I saved the Yupo waste from behind the horse and sleigh and inlaid it back into the finished scene.

 I then used a Lawn Fawn stitched circle die to cut the scene and pop dotted it to my card. I finished the card off with a Cursive Script Merry, Memory Box die cut from a slim snippet of the inked Yupo paper
.


This was so much fun that I made a second card with the horse and sleigh cut from a gunmetal grey glitter paper and a cut another Cursive  Merry Die from the same grey glittered cardstock.



I am entering this card over at Darnells 10th NBUS challenge where the theme is for you to use a NBUS item of course. There is also an optional challenge for you to use bubble wrap. I decided to forgo this option as I do not have any at the moment.

You can check out the NBUS challenge at Darnell's blog djkardkreations

Oh, I want that horse and sleigh die! How completely different these cards look by just changing the color of the die cut! Beautiful sky made too.
