Stampin’ Up!® Artistically Inked Thanks May Blog Hop Card

Welcome and Thank you for visiting Christy’s Stamping Spot! I’m Christy and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I’m excited to be taking part in Bruno and Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop with this fabulous group of Demonstrators from around the world!

Card Measurements and Supply List for this project are found at the bottom of this blog post.

Each month I make & send Customer Thank You Cards for everyone who orders from my Online Store. This month I created a card with the gorgeous Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper and the Artistically Inked Bundle from the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.


Start with the Polished Pink cs card base. Cut an Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper Panel and glue it to the card base. Stamp the flower & trio of flowers from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Polished Pink ink on Basic White cs. Stamp the leaves from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Just Jade ink on Basic White cs. Die cut out all the stamped flowers & leaves with the Artistic Dies. Add Wink of Stella to the flowers for sparkle.

Attach the flowers, leaves, and gold accent leaves & sprigs from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera pack to the card front with glue, glue dots, and Stampin’ Dimensionals to the left side of the card front.

Cut a Polished Pink cs panel, gold foil panel, and Basic White cs panel. Stamp the sentiment from the Artistically Inked stamp set in Polished Pink ink on the Basic White cs. Glue the stamped Basic White cs panel to the gold foil panel & Polished Pink cs panel. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sentiment panels to the card front overlapping the flowers and leaves. Add Gilded Gems to the card front under the sentiment panels.

Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. Stamp the sentiment from the Artistically Ink stamp set in Polished Pink ink and add the flowers, leaves, and gold accent leaves & sprigs from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera pack to the inside panel. I also added a strip of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.

I hope you enjoyed my Artistically Inked Thanks card. You can order the Artistically Inked Bundle, the Expressions In Ink DSP, and the Expressions In Ink Ephemera pack in my Online Store.
