Hello! It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. Here’s another sketch challenge for you to try!
ARTISTICALLY INKED BUNDLE
I knew I wanted some designer paper in the background…but which one to use? I finally pulled out the Expressions in Ink Designer Paper for my card and the Artistically Inked Bundle!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Pale Papaya cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- A 2-3/4 x 5 piece of Expressions in Ink DSP to the background.
- A 2-3/4 x 3-3/4 piece of Basic White was added on top.
- A 3/4 x 3-3/4 piece of the green print in Expressions in Ink DSP was added across the top with a 1/2 x 3-1/4 gold metallic striped DSP on top.
- The greeting was stamped with Cajun Craze Ink on 1/2 x 3 piece of Basic White and added to the strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The large flower was inked with Pale Papaya and sponged with Cajun Craze along the edges TWICE on Basic White c/s. The inside flower inked the same way. The center inked with stamped off Cajun Craze Ink and dots with full strength Cajun Craze Ink. The leaves with Pear Pizzazz Ink with sponged on Old Olive Ink. All were cut with the dies and assembled on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- I bent up the edges of the flower and leaves for some more dimension.
I love the extra layers for the flower! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary!
Our popular TECHNIQUES Collection is back with SIX new techniques for cards! We are featuring the upcoming BLESSINGS OF HOME STAMP SET and FLOWERS OF HOME DIES (available for demos to preorder now and customers on January 3) along with the techniques. These flower images are so pretty to color or leave monochromatic for a vintage look! We've also paired the Bundle with the HEART & HOME DESIGNER PAPER on our SIX technique card tutorials.

Don't you LOVE a great tree set? We do! In this bundle, use the trees singly or build an entire forest! They aren't just for Christmas cards, this bundle can be used year-around to build a woodsy scene. For our Collection, we've paired Stampin' Up!'s WHIMSICAL TREES STAMP SET and CHRISTMAS TREE DIES with the WHIMSY & WONDER DESIGNER PAPER to create three cards (one a special fold card) and a fabulous 3D project you can't wait to use...just in time for the holidays!
