The Artistically Inked bundle is part of a stunning suite which includes coordinating Specialty Designer Series Paper and an Ephemera Pack. I created my card with the smaller flower in this set, with a different colour palette giving it a vintage look.

Our stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus came in very handy to stamp these flowers. I started by inking the entire flower in Blushing Bride and stamping. Then I added highlights with Flirty Flamingo and Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Markers, stamping after each addition of colour. For the darker flowers I added Merry Merlot with a sponge dauber along with the Markers.

The leaf sprigs were die cut from Basic White cardstock and then sponged in Soft Succulent, Pear Pizzazz and Merry Merlot to give a variegated look.

The Basic White panel was stamped with leaves from the Forever Fern stamp set. Then I added some embossing paste using a mask. This week my featured product is our Decorative Masks. These are a low cost product that gives you many options for layering and adding texture to your projects.

I used the Stamparatus for the sentiment so I could re-stamp to get a nice depth of colour. Stamping it 3 times over gave me a rich colour.

June Card Club – Expressions in Ink

I’ve got a beautiful class to offer you this month for Card Club and it gets sent right to your door so you can create from the comfort of your home in your own time. This class features the pretty Expressions in Ink Suite. You can see it on the front cover of our Annual Catalogue (if you would like a catalogue, please email or phone me).

Card Club offers you the benefit of a class mailed out to you each month in a subscription based card kit. I put together a specially selected set of products each month valued at $30 or more. These products will be used to make your cards. You will always get some Designer Series Paper and other products valued at $30. I provide you with the cardstock – card bases, die cuts, cardstock required for stamping and envelopes.

There are additional products that you require to make the cards exactly as per my cards (see below) however you can substitute any of this with what you have already. As per Stampin’ Up! policy, there are no stamped images included in your kits.

Your cardstock and envelopes are sent completely free to you. You get to create 8 cards – 2 each of 4 designs. A PDF tutorial is emailed to you at the end of the month so you can always have it as a reference.
