This is my second creation with the “Inked & Tiled” Bundle. The imagery in this stamp set has a very soft feel, so I was imaging a “light and airy” card. My previous card HERE, was more monochromatic. This card also uses the beautiful “Inked Botanicals” DSP which is currently on SALE at 15% off through the end of June.

Inked & Tiled Bundle

I selected Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral and Pool Party for my color combination. Basically, I let the DSP help me with choosing my color palette. The “direct to rubber” technique with markers was used to color on to the rubber image. After stamping, I chose one of the “Stitched Rectangles” Dies to cut out the shape. Afterwards, as I was assembling my card, I realized they were retired in May!

My approach with this card was to “keep it simple“, which I managed to do. I placed a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock behind the “Stitched Rectangle” Die and then attached to the DSP layer. I stamped the “Just a NOTE” greeting from the “Inked & Tiled” Stamp set and then punched it out the the coordinating “Plus Sign” Punch. Then, I trimmed off two of the “legs” of the punched shape. A “Vanilla” Bow from the “Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack” was added behind the greeting and then attached to the card with “Mini Dimensionals”. To complete my card, I used three of the “Brushed Brass Butterflies” for a touch of “subtle” bling.
