Bruno & Kylie Bertucci Demonstrator Training Program Blog Hop- June 2021- Expressions in Ink

Hello and thank you for joining us today for our Demonstrator Training Blog Hop this month! We have some great customer and team member Thank You cards to share with you today! We have talented Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators worldwide here that will give you great ideas to take and make your own creations with!

I have chosen to use the Expressions in Ink Suite from the catalog, which features the Artistically Inked Stamp Set and Artistic Dies, along with the gorgeous Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I am also using the New Gold 6x6 Metallic Specialty Paper as well today for my card. I also used the Tasteful Labels Dies as well for my sentiment. 

My card base is Evening Evergreen and is cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  My layer is Just Jade and is cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", and my DSP layer is 4" x 5 1/4".  I adhered the DSP to the Just Jade and then both layers to my card base using Multipurpose glue. 

I cut the large leaf die with the Fold Metallic paper and die cut that out.  To adhere it I used multipurpose glue with a sponge and added glue using my silicone mat.  I stamped my sentiment in Evening Evergreen ink onto a label and popped it with dimensionals.  Not much to this card, but I feel the DSP makes the card enough on it's own. Simple to make and easy to duplicate. 

For the inside I used the large inky looking image from the stamp set and stamped it on basic white cut at 4" x 5 1/4" first in Evening Evergreen ink and then again in Just Jade over the top moved in slightly.  I like the effect it gives and no naked inside of my card. I adhered this with multipurpose glue and my card is now complete. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today and will check out the hop and look to other blogs for inspiration on Thank You cards you may need.
