I’m excited to be participating in Kylie Bertucci’s Monthly International Blog Highlights with Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators from around the world! The theme this and every month is Thank You. Below there is a button where you can visit the gallery and vote for your five favorite cards (I hope mine is one of them!).
When I saw the A Touch of Ink stamp set in the Sale-a-Bration brochure, it reminded me of a card I made years ago, about 2010, using the long-retired and personal favorite Elements of Style stamp set. This card also featured the Top Note die, which I’d love to see an updated version of.
Could I create a new card with the same basic design elements? Yes, I could! I believe Soft Suede was an In Color back then, but is part of the Neutrals color family now. However, we don’t have the textured cardstock, so I embossed a layer with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder, which is quite similar. Top Note is hard to replace, but I found a die in the Hippo & Friends Dies that has the same spirit.
The most fun part was using the rock and roll stamping technique. I inked the hummingbird stamp with Pear Pizzazz, then “rocked and rolled” the edges of the stamp on the Terracotta Tile ink pad.
Naturally, I stepped things up a little bit with coordinating ribbon and embellishments!
I’d love it if you were to vote for me! The top 10 will participate in a blog hop toward the end of January. Just look for my card in the gallery and select the heart in the upper right corner of the image.
