I do love some ink smooshing with Distress inks! Another stamp set that I haven’t really played with yet is this Altenew Bottleful Of…
All the products I used to create these cards are listed and linked at the bottom of this post. All the supplies are available now over at our online shop!
The first card doesn’t have any ink smooshing on it. I used watercolour cardstock for all these cards. On this card I stamped the bottle outline with black ink and the solid bottle with Forest Glades ink three times to make three bottles. I stamped onto watercolour cardstock so I didn’t get a smooth stamped impression on this textured cardstock. I stamped the solid label in Tumbled Glass ink and fussy cut them out. I stamped the words “kindness” “cheers” and “sunshine” on the oval labels and used some foam tape to adhere them. I cut this piece to 4 ½” (the width is 3 ¾”) and glued it onto a mat of green cardstock. Just above the watercolour piece I stamped “sending you a bottleful of” and added three dots with a white gel pen. This is a standard 4 ¼” x 5 ½” sized top folding card.
To create this beautiful yellow inky background, I smooshed some Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks onto my craft mat. I sprayed some water to get the ink moving and pushed my watercolour cardstock down into this lovely colour. I smooshed and moved the watercolour card so that the whole card was covered in ink and let this dry. There aren’t dies available for this stamp set, so I made a mask of the bottle outline, and cut it out. I stamped the middle bottle first and covered this with the mask so I could stamp the two other bottles. While I had the mask in place I also stamped the decorative label. Inside the label on the first bottle I stamped the sentiment “sweet love” and stamped the rest of the sentiment “you are a bottleful of” onto a small watercolour strip and cut a banner edge. This is adhered onto a standard A2 top folding card base.
The next two cards are created in a similar way. To get the ink smooshed background, I stamped some ink onto a scrap piece of packaging and added some water. Then I rolled and squashed the ink onto the card. This way I have more control of where the colour will go. I stamped the bottle outline stamp twice onto some mixed media cardstock and coloured in these images with my Zig markers. The green bottle has the decorative label stamped onto it. The pink bottle has the oval label on foam tape. Making sure that there would be space for the bottle I repeat stamped the rest of the sentiment onto of the ink backgrounds. To finish off these cards I added some sparkly sequins and a mat of colour cardstock. There are both top folding cards.
I hope you like these cards I created with the Bottleful Of stamp set. Which one is your favourite?
