Hello Monday! Thanks for joining me this morning as I hop with my Stampin’ Up! friends from around the world for another Stamp Review Crew hop. Today we’re sharing projects we’ve made using the Artistically Inked stamp set.
This was my top pick from the 2021 Annual Catalogue. I couldn’t wait to have the whole suite – the stamp set, the coordinating Artistic Dies, the stunning Expressions in Ink DSP and Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack.
I’ve used my favourite layout at the moment for these cards – a notebook style fancy fold where you take a standard card size, score at 4-1/8” from the open end and adhere the space between the side fold and the score line to create a solid side piece.
The colours for this DSP are so pretty, so I’ve used Polished Pink and Soft Succulent from the 2021-2023 In Colors to complement the DSP.
Each side contains deluxe gold foiling, which made the choice to add accents die cut from gold foil an easy one.
The stamps in this set have a beautiful watercolour effect. You’ll want to make sure you apply ink carefully – either with a brush or sponge dauber, or smoothing the ink with a sponge or brush after you’ve inked directly from the pad. It makes so much difference to the variation in colour that it’s worth the extra effort!
As well as the floral images, the stamp set contains sentiments you’ll want to use on every card you make!
Have I convinced you yet how necessary this suite is for your collection? Keep hopping to see more ideas on projects you can create using this stamp set. Next blog to visit is the fantastic Jay Soriano.
Have a wonderful week!
