I’ve been looking forward to playing with the Artistically Inked Bundle, and today is the day. The fact that it’s on the cover of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is an indication that it was expected to be a winner. There is a digital copy of the catalog, under my profile picture, that you can download to your computer.
I was excited to get started, and used an Artistic Die to cut the leaves from Thick Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped an Artistically Inked flower in Mango Melody and Daffodil Delight Inks on Basic White Cardstock, and used its Artistic Die for cutting.
Don’t you love the watercolored look? And, it’s so easy!
The background for my flowers and leaves was easy also. I began with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I used three Stitched Rectangles Dies, so measuring wasn’t required. I used the largest one to cut from black & white, True Love Designer Paper, the second largest to cut from Magenta Madness Cardstock, and the third largest to cut from Basic White Cardstock.
Next, I stamped “thanks,” from the Artistically Inked Stamp Set, in Stazon Black Ink.
Prior to glueing the layers together, I used a Meadow Moments Embossing Folder on the white layer to add some texture. The narrow size of this embossing folder fits the third largest, Stitched Rectangle, perfectly.
Finally, I attached the leaves and flowers with a bit of glue and a few Dimensionals. The leaves on the ends were glued, but the middle leaves were left free to lift around the flowers.
If you’re wondering, the paper I used for photographing is one of the gorgeous designs of Expressions In Ink Designer Paper.
I was inspired by the colors at TGIF.
