A Touch of Ink Thinking of You

A Touch of Ink Thinking of You Card

There is nothing better than going to your mailbox and finding a handmade card.  Wouldn’t you love to receive this A Touch of Ink Thinking of You card?  Which, by the way, you can choose as your Sale-a-bration gift with a $100 purchase.  Who doesn’t love a gift with purchase—I know I certainly do.

A Touch of Ink Thinking of You card

As you can see from looking around my blog, I love butterflies. So, I was especially pleased when this set contained a beautiful side view butterfly.  I truly wish, Stampin’ Up! would include more side view butterflies in their stamp sets. Sometimes, you want to place them on a flower, and the full-on butterfly doesn’t seem to work quite as well. 

Have you tried the Stampin’ Up! Blends alcohol markers? Wow, they are so easy to use, and you get amazing results with minimal effort.  Be sure to check out my video below for some hints to great coloring.

Hopefully, you are now inspired to create your own A Touch of Ink Thinking of You card.

Forever Blossoms Thank You card

Thank you card using Forever Blossoms stamp set from Stampin' Up!

It seems as though I always need thank you cards; I especially love this Forever Blossoms thank you card. The Forever Blossoms stamp set is so versatile, especially with the matching Cherry Blossom dies.

I colored the Forever Blossoms images with the SU! Blends Alcohol Markers. Yes, coloring can seem intimidating. However, it isn’t. Just a few simple tricks, and you, too, can create beautifully colored images.

Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

I love the look of my Parisian Beauty Birthday Card.  I had such a fun time putting all the parts together to form a beautiful but elegant card.

Repetition stamping can sometimes be quite tricky.  However, the Parisian Beauty sentiment easily lines up; don’t be afraid to try it.  Did you notice the beautiful embossed background?  I used the Country Floral 3D embossing folder.  One of my very favorites!

I find it helps to repeat a color three times on my cards.  In particular, the gold-edged ribbon, the gold on the Golden Honey DSP, and the gold embossed Eiffel tower.  Consequently, the color repetition helps your eye travel across the card and adds continuity to the design.  

Parisian Beauty Birthday Card

Did you notice the fleur-de-lis stamped in Blushing Bride?  It adds just that touch of color to tie everything together.  I love my simple, elegant card.  Hopefully, you are inspired to stamp your own Parisian Beauty Birthday card.

Parisian Beauty Amour Card

Parisian Beauty Amour Card

I’ve always wanted to travel to Paris. Visit the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, walk down the Champs-Elysées, and as might be expected, eat french pastries. Well, a girl can dream. However, my Parisian Beauty Amour card does put me in mind of all things french.

Parisian Beauty Amour Card

Simple little touches, like the die-cut “Amour,” the Parisian Flourish embossed background, and lots of Clear Wink of Stella on the Eiffel Tower combine to make this beautiful card.

Parisian Beauty Amour Card

You can add visual interest on the inside of your card by tapping off the ink before stamping your cardstock. This technique not only makes your card interesting, but it also adds a subtle reminder of your main focal image.  Why not make your own Parisian Beauty Amour card?
