Yupo Background Card

Hello there my crafty friends!  Today's video shows me having a play with some Yupo paper and alcohol inks.  This paper has been designed to react with the inks in a wonderful and fabulous way.  It makes for a really interesting background.

The finished dimensions are 6 1/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. Hope you managed to celebrate in your own way here for Independence Day yesterday and that our friends over the pond are recovering well lol. Now onto this dramatic beautiful sample, I'm really looking forward to the tutorial if it's similar to the demo you and Hayley did a few months ago where you both had so much fun then I can't wait ☺ this fabulous choice of colours shows just how pretty your dies are. In the middle of changing your shirt into a young ladies summer top for a birthday card I've been asked for but not sure if my 'skills' are really up to such change lol.
Sending hugs and hope your day is a nice day xxx

I have played with you papers but don't get as good results as yours i think it's cos I don't know where to stop! Love your card and the sentiment looks great in the mixed colours

Donita Naylor said...

Oh, I so really really like the whole yupo concept! Your demo with the two blues, a green and a yellow really looks fabulous. I bought a little package of Yupo from somewhere and apparently put it in a "safe place." You know, the magic door to the land of the lost.

You had me going there for a minute. I heard you say chipped sapphire, and I wondered if that was one of the new colors, because I was pretty sure I didn't have that particular red. Wasn't I surprised to see that it was blue!

I sure do love those little flowers with a rosebud center.

Thank you for this especially informative video.

Best to all,


Helen Bell said...

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I am really pleased you did this video because now I can see how you did this up close and personal. I think I have used too much blending solution in the past so I may have another go again today. Love the card too. Thank you.

Chris Curry said...

Brilliant card Sue, love how alcohol inks work on the yupo paper. I can see how addictive it is and why you just want to keep going. Where do we get the yupo from please? Thank you, have a good day. Xxx

Karen Drew said...

Beautiful. Love the background. I do enjoy a bit of “messy” crafting

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

What a fabulous background, it sets off the diecut frame beautifully - I haven't tried Yupo paper as yet but I'm sure gloss or mirror card would be a good that dinky little flower too!


Suemac said...

A new technique to learn
Thank You, I received my Believe in th Magic die yesterday.

Hi Sue - I will be watching your video later to see how you've achieve this look with the yupo paper. The colour looks so smart against the white frame and the tiny flower is the finishing touch. Sending best wishes

carol edwards said...

Hello Sue, really enjoyed your video and an introduction to Typo paper. Fascinating how the inks make such a wonderful design and the effect is lovely.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card and the Poppy die is so pretty and I love the tiny flower created from it. I remember seeing you play with the Yupo paper on TV but I think today's video shows it more clearly - maybe because I am closer to the screen lol. I will have to think seriously about purchasing some Yupo because the background you have created is beautiful, it reminds me of a really full mixed border flower bed and I do love playing with my alcohol inks. Thank you for the inspiration.


Kate's Cards said...

Great card and fab background!

Margaret Rogers said...

Hi Sue
Lovely card. Enjoyed the video, the Yupo paper looks really good. I think we bought some when we went to a crafty do earlier this year, but we haven't used it yet, but I think I might find it out and have a go.

Gorgeous card and great video, love the background but as I don't have yupo paper or alcohol inks I won't be able to try something like this. Have had two evenings of thunderstorms here in France and heavy rain, just my luck!!
