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!
