I have a couple of cards to share with you today that feature the fabulous Happy Birthday Block Die-namics. This die is so much fun to play with! I love it paired with alcohol inks or bright card stock and it looks great as a shaker too!



For my first card, I paired an alcohol ink background with Brushed Silver card stock. I used Sailboat Blue, Purple Twilight, Patina, Limeade, and Sunshine Yellow alcohol ink. I added some silver foil for an extra bit of sparkle. Happy Birthday was die-cut in Brushed Silver card stock. I finished off the card with a sentiment from the fabulous Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings.



Another one of the things that I love about this die, is that you can create two cards with one cut! For my second card, I used the letters that were cut from the above alcohol sheet. I adhered the letters on Smooth White card stock and added a sentiment from the You Wow Me stamp set.




Thank you so much for joining me all week. I hope we have inspired you to create something amazing! Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the fantastic creations the design team has created to share with you. Don't forget to comment for your chance to win a gift voucher.

  7. Both cards are stunning! I keep wanting to try something with alcohol inks (they look so vibrant) but have been hesitant to do so. I think trying it this way on a background first is the way for me to start. What better way to do it than with the Happy Birthday Block Die-namics, thanks for the inspiration :)
