Expressions In Ink is a gorgeous suite that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. This suite of products includes the stamp set called Artistically Inked, the coordinating Artistic Dies (and you can save 10% if you purchase them in a Bundle), Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper and Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack. The Ephemera Pack is a set of 50 various gold foil pieces and 100 adhesive backed sequins. The Designer Series Paper is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. It has the alcohol inked looking backgrounds with gold foiling mixed in. It is so pretty in the catalog but is even prettier in person. The Artistically Inked stamp set is a DisINKtive stamp set. This means that one stamp creates different opacities which give the image more depth.
To make this card I first cut out two of the large leaves in Evening Evergreen card stock and adhered them to a piece of Soft Succulent card stock using Multipurpose Glue. This glue is great for adhering intricate die cuts. Then I stamped the flower in Polished Pink ink and the small leaves using Evening Evergreen ink and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink and layered everything together. It was a fairly easy card to make but still looks intricate.
LOVELY card Susan. I really like that swirl that you’ve created with the leaves. The color combination is delightful
Beautiful card, Susan! I love your leafy background. It may have been fairly simple to make, but it’s so elegant and lovely, no one would know.
