Artistically Inked bundle

Stampin’ Up Hello with Artistically Inked

Today’s card uses – as the title suggests – the Artistically Inked bundle and the beautiful Stitched Greenery Dies. I’ll be honest, I didn’t think I would like the Stitched Greenery Dies – but I DO!!!. It leaves this beautiful imprint that is delicate and well, just beautiful. The card is pretty simple with a couple of layers for added charm & depth. This die is in the NEW July-December Min Catalog that will be available to customers Aug 3. More about that later in this post…

.1Hello w/ Artistically Inked

We start off with a card base of So Saffron card stock and cover the front with Regals 6×6 DSP in Crushed Curry. We then run a panel of Basic White through the Cut & Emboss machine using the Stitched Greenery Dies and cut it down to the size I wanted. I adhered this to another Basic White panel that was slightly larger, for strength. Stamp the ‘hello’ from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Memento Black ink and fussy cut. Stamp the single rose in So Saffron ink (stamped off once) on a Basic White scrap and die cut with the Artistic Dies. Stamp the leaves in Pear Pizzazz ink (also stamped off once) on another Basic White scrap and die cut those with the appropriate dies in the Artistic Dies. I played around a bit with how I wanted the leaves then adhered them to the back of the rose with liquid glue I put dimensionals on the back of the rose and on the back of the double leaf and set it aside. I put dimensionals on the back of the hello and set it aside as well. I cut a strip of Basic White and wrapped Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee around it, using glue dots to secure in place. I added the strip to the left edge of the Basic White panel with liquid glue and put dimensionals on the right end where it extends. I added the hello on the extended end and the rose & leaves to the corner. The upper leaf that extends has a double layer of dimensionals. For that final glam I added three Opal Rounds and the card front was complete. 🙂

Hello w/ Artistically Inked.2

For the inside I stamped the splotch from the Artistically Inked stamp set in stamped off So Saffron ink. I then pulled out the Quiet Meadow stamp set and stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink ~ all this on a Basic White panel. The panel was adhered on the inside of the card with liquid glue and voila! Love this…

Hello w/ Artistically Inked.3

For the envelope, I stamped the flap with the same splotch with Pear Pizzazz ink full strength and that was it. You will notice in this picture there are no Opal Rounds – I added them after I took this photo! So tell me – do you like the card better with or without the Opal Rounds? This is a test 😁. I like them better with – obviously.

I like this card – it’s bright, fresh looking and has dimension and texture and was fun to create. I just let my mind decide what was next. The other thing I did was mix the shades of yellow and it’s hard to tell. The So Saffron rose is softer than it’s Crushed Curry background or the Bumblebee Gingham ribbon, but they do not clash – they compliment. That’s Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! Polished Pink & Pool Party Birthday

Who would have thought Polished Pink & Pool Party would compliment each other? Not me! But as I was playing with colors, I really liked this combo ~ and the Gray Granite is just enough to soften things a bit. And this came together because I was rooting around in my stash and found these die cuts from the All Squared Away bundle!

Polished Pink & Pool Party Birthday.1

The flower die cut comes from Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP using the Floral Squares Dies and the background is stamped in Polished Pink on a Basic White panel with the All Squared Away stamp set. I trimmed that down and adhered the die cut with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back and attached it to a larger square of Basic White cut with the Layering Squares Dies (OOPS>>> these are a retired item – bummer!). I used a scalloped square from the Layering Squares Dies to create a Polished Pink and the squares were adhered to that with liquid glue. This is when I discovered this fun contrast with Pool Party… using the Fine Art Floral DSP and the Scallop & Contour Dies. I made a square by die cutting only a portion of the Scallop, matching the contours and die cutting the other end. And I really like the smaller scallop paired with the larger scallop.; it provides a nice contrast. The Polished Pink layers were adhered to this new scalloped square with liquid glue, then onto a larger panel of Basic White. I pulled in another Pool Party using the Subtles 6×6 DSP and adhered that to a Thick Basic White card base (yep, lisuid glue) then added all the layers using liquid glue. The sentiment banner comes from the Artistically Inked stamped set and I stamped that in Gray Granite on a Basic White strip then angled the ends. That was attached to a Polished Pink strip and added to the card front with liquid glue. For a final bit of bling, I added three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in Polished Pink ~ and the card front was done!

Birthday, inside.2

For the inside of the card I added another panel of the Fine Art Floral DSP. On the Basic White panel, I stamped this extra fun ‘blotch’ using the Artistically Ink stamp set with Pool Party ink. Over that I stamped the sentiment with Basic Gray ink from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. I adhered the Basic White panel to the DSP and the card itself was complete.

Polished Pink & Pool Party Birthday.3

For the envelope, I used the Subtles 6×6 DSP to adhere to the envelope flap and that was it. I’m rather excited about this new color combo… hope you like it too. Card cuts are listed at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Wedding Card

Gosh, the Specialty DSP in the Expressions in Ink is amazingly beautiful. Sometimes I find it hard to use such beautiful papers, but I’m getting better at doing that. Today’s card uses it for a wedding card – and I’ve used it on the front AND the inside.

Artistically Inked Wedding Card – #1

I began by adhering the Expressions in Ink Specialty DSP (4 x 5 1/4) to a panel of Just Jade card stock (4 1/8 x 5 3/8). I then die cut the leaves from Gold Foil using the Artistic Dies. I pulled out the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack for another set of leaves/ berries. I stamped this gorgeous flower using Pale Papaya ink and the Artistically Inked stamp set, then die cut it with the coordinating Artistic Dies. I placed them where I wanted them so I could find the placement of the sentiment, then set them aside. I used the embossing buddy to clear the area of static, then stamped the word ‘Love’ (from the Forever & Always stamp set that retires soon) first in Shaded Spruce ink then in VersaMark, sprinkled it with clear embossing powder and heat set it. This little bit of shine allows it to show it’s importance. Using the Stamparatus for this allows for perfect stamping over!

The leaves were adhered with a bit of Stampin Seal (under the flower) then dabs of liquid glue in just a couple of places. The white leaves/ berries from the Ephemera Pack were attached directly to the back of the flower; dimensionals were added and the flower was attached. Three 2021-2023 In Color Jewels were added for extra glamour.

This front panel, now completed, got dimensionals on the back and was adhered to a Thick Basic White card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2).

Artistically Inked Wedding Card, inside – #2

For the inside, I used another panel of the same Expressions in Ink SDSP adhered to Just Jade card stock (same measurements as the front). I used the Always Dies to die cut the gold foil background of the sentiment. A 1 1/4 x 4 strip of Foam Adhesive was attached to Shaded Spruce card stock of the same size by simply removing the backing. Using the word from the Always Dies, this was die cut by running it through once, then turning the piece over and running it through again.. The backing was removed and the word attached nicely to the gold foil. This was put in place with liquid glue. Three more 2021-2023 In Color Jewels were added show the importance of the word. And the card was complete.

Artistically Inked Wedding Card – #3

For the envelope I added more Expressions in Ink SDSP and the card was done, ready to send. I hope the happy couple like this card ~ and remember the importance to ‘love always’.
