    I had thought about this, and read about it somewhere, too. I cut hearts on my Cricut (using the double-cut technique like for chipboard) and then I used alchol inks and a script stamp on them. I can post pics tomorrow if you are interested?

    I'M INTERESTED!!!! Oh, I would love to see them.

    Shari, I would love to see as well. Question: to use alcohol inks on the ghost letters do you also need the blending solution?

    I'm lost! I don't use stamps. Are ghost letters something to do with stamping? I absolutely do not know what they are but am afraid I might be missing some way to spend money! Thanks - Ginny

    I'm not sure either Ginny. That is why I am looking forward to seeing Cali4niaGirl's post.

    oops! forgot about this till tonight! Going to take pics now....

    Here are the hearts I cut on the Cricut (cut 2x) out of the actual cartridge plastic wrapping. It does not cut ALL the way thru cleanly, so you just snap off the outside plastic or use your x-acto knife. (or maybe try 3x; I have not done that?). I did use blender solution with alcohol inks on the hearts back, then used StayzOn ink with a stamp on the front:

    I had to play some more while I was taking pics! Here is a balloon (also from George cart) with full strength alcohol ink.

    PS: the drywall tape/mesh takes the alcohol inks pretty well, too!

    Yes, I thank you too. Such pretty things you did. I take it alcohol ink is in the stamping section? Maybe I'll wait until my friend who stamps comes back from vacation so she can fill me in. I also love the mesh you did. That's just the stuff you get at a hardware store? Maybe that's the reason my LSS is discontinuing all their mesh products. Thanks again - Ginny

    So you can cut the plastic with a Cricut!?!? And when you say full strenght, what exactly does that mean? Sorry, I've never used alcohol inks before.
