Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Hello Card

Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing a simple monochrome thank you card made with the beautiful Expressions in Ink designer series paper and the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked bundle. This was my first opportunity to play with this beautiful suite, and so I had to show it off, so hopefully it will be back in stock soon. I am also impressed by the stamp and die bundle that is available and I paired it with the fancy Ornate Frames dies to make my label. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of the Expressions in Ink designer series paper to an Old Olive panel and wrapped a length of gold twine around it and made a loopy bow. I adhered the panel to the front of a Polished Pink card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked cling stamp set in Versamark ink on a Basic White panel and sprinkled it with gold embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny and cut the label out with the Ornate Frames die. I cut a Pale Papaya shimmer vellum panel with the filigree die from the Ornate Frames die and adhered it to the back of the label with glue dots.

I popped the label on the card front with dimensionals and finished it off with three gilded gems.

For the inside of the card, stamped three flowers from the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked stamp set in Melon Mambo ink on a Basic White panel. Aren’t those flowers just gorgeous? I made masks by stamping the flower on printer paper and cutting it out with my paper snips. Then I covered each flower with the mask and stamped the single leaf in stamped off Shaded Spruce ink. Then I stamped the spatter in Versamark twice in the center of each flower, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set. This way I have gold sprinkles in the center of my flowers, just like the DSP! I adhered the panel to the inside of my card.

I thought I was going to make a simple card featuring beautiful DSP, but the wonderful Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked stamps are just as beautiful as the DSP! Next up is some stamped floral card fronts with these gorgeous stamps and I can’t wait to play with them in different colors!
