Artistically Inked March swaps & more

I love this stamp set for it’s simplistic water-colour look. I used the retiring 2020-2022 In-Colours Magenta Madness, Just Jade and BumbleBee. I believe the Ink refills for the Bumble Bee and Just Jade are sold out but if you don’t have the ink pads, they’re available as of right now. ** If you are placing an order and get the message “Discontinued”, the item has been sold out. If you get the message “Not orderable”, this means that it is currently out of stock and will be in stock in the future. I also used the Artistically Inked bundle, which, while it is on the Last Chance List – it is in the new catalogue, but not as a bundle. Today is the last day to order the Mini Cut & Emboss machine at 20% off. Currently the regular price is $82, but will be $86 in the new catalogue. This is your last and only chance to get it for $65.50

Card base – Just Jade 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, scored at 4-1/4, Basic White (2) 4 x 5-1/4, Basic White scraps for floral die cut and sentiments

I needed a lot of these cards for my March swaps, birthday and thank you cards, so I pre-cut several of the large floral die and used my die brush attachment for my Take your pick tool, to get all the little bits out of the die cuts. I used washi tape to mark where my card stock would go, on my Stamparatus, so all the stamping would be in the correct spot. I placed the die cut onto the card stock to determine where to place the stamp, then lowered the plate of the Stamparatus to pick up the stamp. I removed the die cut, then stamped all of the Magenta Madness layers, then repeated the process for the other two colours. I used an ink dauber to apply Bumble Bee ink to the centre of the large flower. I applied Tombow Multipurpose glue just to the centre areas of the die cut and layered it over the stamped image.

On the inside, I used the daubers to put Magenta Madness and Bumble Bee onto the large water-colour stamp, then stamped to one side of the second piece of Basic White , 4 x 5-1/4 and adhered inside the Just Jade card base.

I used scraps to stamp out my sentiments – some in Just Jade and some in Memento Black.

I used dimensional to layer the sentiment banners soon the card, and completed the look with some Opal Rounds.

I hope you enjoyed this card, and I’d love to see what you come up with using this beautiful set.
