I’m excited about the new annual catalog and especially Expressions in Ink Suite—my favorite!! I love the mixture of colors and the faux watercolor effect without all the mess! I’ll show several samples and what you can do with do with the fabulous products in this Suite! The Suite of products includes Artistically Inked stamp set, Artistic Dies, Expressions in Ink Designer Series paper, and Epherma Gold Paper:
The Designer Series Paper is absolutely gorgeous! There are several patterns where there is white space at the top and bottom and the design across the middle, like Figure 1. You can make 6 cards like Fig. 2 by cutting at 4” increments top to bottom and the cutting the paper at 6” left to right and using on your card front. These patterns make beautiful cards without much effort! The paper does all the work.
You can make 6 cards like Fig. 2 by cutting the paper like in Figure 1 and stamping a sentiment in the white space. So easy and pretty!
Here’s an example of using one of these patterns sideways and adding some stamping and the beautiful floral die cut from the Artistic Dies. You can make a coordinating inside using the background stamp
Another example of using one of the other colored patterns from the DSP and adding the beautiful leaf die cut from the Artistic Dies and sentiment from the stamp set. Using Polished Pink and Pale Papaya ink, the stamps were used to make a coordinating design on the inside.
This card uses another piece of the designer series paper and then adds stamped images to the front, that lines up with the floral die.
The Epherma pack contains 5 sheets of gold elements including 2 different labels and leaves—up to 50 total elements. These elements work beautifully with this Suite and you can create beautiful cards with ease!!! I love these accent pieces!
The two cards above use the stamped then die cut flowers as the focal point. The gold striped paper can be change to any coordinating color using you favorite ink color and a blending brush!
One of the stamps in Artistically Inked stamp set that is so versatile is the background stamp! You can make faux watercolor backgrounds for your card using this stamp in any color you want. The sneak peek at the June Paper Pumpkin shows a faux watercolor background in pink and purple, so I thought I would give it a try using Polished Pink and Gorgeous Grape
