There is a spot on her blog where you can "Search this Blog"
on Michelle's Blog.
I loved her Alcohol Ink cards so much, that I did just that.
Here is my take on a few of her AMAZING cards.
I have used YUPO and Alcohol Inks.
I'm totally honest to say that I am not as experienced with 
using alcohol inks, so it was a step put of my comfort zone.
 I highly recommend doing it once in awhile, you just might be surprised with your results!!

Here are the cards of Michelle's that are so INSPIRING
 that prompted me to create my designs:

This card is a all time favorite of mine of Michelle's.
Her post is: "Happy Mother's Day to my MUM"

This Birthday card is from her post called: "Alcohol Ink YUPO Lift and a Mistake"

LF : Make the Sentiment the Star!


When the YOU'RE CLAWSOME set came out I loved it. Then the FORTUNE TELLER TABBY set came out, I was like....Hey.................then I really wanted to make this card. And this challenge was PERFECT.

SO....... I got a few of these supplies from Doodlebugs, WA.

Yay (Thanks Cathy) fast shipping and total HAPPY MAIL

Are you able to guess what inspired this card?

I'll give you a hint: It's all about the sentiment!!! 

If you guessed the movie BIG with Tom Hanks, Yay!  

You got it.  It's a classic FAVE of mine.

Picket Fence Studios -Wedding Card

Hey there. It’s been a minute since I’ve posted anything creative.

I needed a Wedding card for one of my nieces.
I was able to see it via video.
Great news for these COVID times.
Love prevails.

This is Picket Fence Studios “To the Lovely Couple” paired with Penny Black “Floral Half Border Die”. Inside is the Avery Elle “Confetti Mat” Die.

I made two cards.

One with Color Throwdown Inspired Colors for my stash, the other with more traditional colors.

Still focusing on healthier me.
Stay safe all!

 Prepare white card base of 4.25 x 5.5. Cut two panels of white card stock 3.75 x 5.5. Die cut the zig zag edger down both sides of the card base. On one panel, apply the Poppin Pink over the Sending Sunshine Stencil. Once dry, sponge distress orange ink over entire panel. On the second panel, line up letters from the 
Bold ABC Die Set spelling upcake, 
running through the die cutting machine, once again adding the c. 
Mask and offset stamp the Calories Schmalories cupcakes in alcohol compatible black ink.
Color cupcakes with alcohol markers and add 
a dusting of fine clear glitter.
Adhere die cut layer over stencil layer, 
and affix to the base card.

The second is another yummy cupcake card with an explosion of sweetness!

To make the "Yum! Cupcake" card:
Prepare white card base of 4.25 x 5.5. Cut a panel of white card stock 4.5 x 3.5. Apply Orange Glow over 
the Whimsy Stamps Honeycomb Drips Stencil.
