Hiya! My latest card features stamps from The Ink Road. I really love this company. I love the snarky sentiments, the encouraging words, the fun designs, the unique sets, and the owner Lara is pretty incredible. I was inspired not only by the Mug Life and Snarks and Recreation stamp sets that I used, but also by Imagine’s August Color of the Month, which is Lavender.
*At the time that I wrote this post, The Ink Road’s website was down for inventory, which is why I didn’t give specific links to the stamp sets. I will add them when the site is back to normal.
I started off by stamping the sentiment (from the Snarks and Recreation stamp set) on to white cardstock with VersaMark ink, and then I heat embossed it with Amethyst Embossing Powder from Stampendous. Then I die cut it with a Fitted Frame from Set B. Next, I inked the edges with Pretty Petunia VersaMagic ink. I love the soft, chalky finish this ink gives. It’s always been one of my favorite ink lines.
Next, I stamped the frappe stamp and “What a brewtiful day” sentiment all of my white background using VersaFine ink. I colored all of the frappes using my Zig Clean Color Markers and thankfully, they wound up being pretty close in color to the Pretty Petunia ink. I inked my card base with Pretty Petunia, added just a few sequins from assorted Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground, and popped my sentiment up with craft foam.
I don’t usually create monochromatic cards, but it’s a nice change from using a ton of colors at once. This would be fun to pair with a gift card to a favorite coffee shop. I am really having so much fun with my new stamps from The Ink Road. I look forward to showing you what else I am working on. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
