Inky Fingers

This week I played in my craft room and it was so nice to get ink all over my fingers.  It felt good to create!!!   I pulled out the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies and stamp pads and got to work.

Rose Garden Blended background

I had an idea as to what I wanted to create but neither of these cards are what I intended.  I wanted to have blended color in the middle of the card and then place my Whisper White Rose die cut on top.

I started blending Rose Red and Garden Green onto Whisper White cardstock but wasn’t happy with the results so I decided to cut out the Rose Garden Thinlit using my blended background.   The card I created with the cut out is below.

Then I tried to accomplish what I had in my mind but again wasn’t happy with the results so I tried blending the colors out to the edge of the paper instead and that result is my first card.

To adhere the Thinlits, I used two different products.  One of them is glued down with Tombow Liquid Multipurpose Glue and the other (a non Stampin’ Up! product) is a spray adhesive from Elmer’s.  Both worked equally well.

I’ve included my supplies below but here are a few extra details:

  •  The sentiment on the first card is from the Card Kit called Watercolor Wishes.  This is a card kit with the stamp set included.


  •  The sentiment on the second card is from a FREE Sale-a-bration set called What I Love.  Place a $50 order (before tax and shipping) and you can choose this stamp set, FREE!  If you are reading this on my blog, the Sale-a-bration catalog can be found  on the right hand side.  Click on the cover of the catalog to see what other choices there are.


  • Three of the items in the Sale-a-bration catalog are only available until February 15th at which time they will go away and there will be three new items.   The three sets that will no longer be available after the 15th are below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
