Expressions in Ink and Happy & Heartfelt Super Quick Cards. Yesterday I shared a card using scraps from the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper, today I am using slightly larger scraps from the Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper is just beautiful, looking like you have spent time making your own paper using alcohol inks, but actually all you need to do is cut the pieces to size!
I have two similar projects to share, which originally I was looking at being the feminine and masculine version of the same card, but actually, whilst the green version could be used for a man in your life, either would be great for your girl friends.
The Expressions in Ink paper is perfect for really quick cards, especially the patterns that have areas of white in them, meaning you can stamp straight onto the paper.
The pink version of this project I went all in using Polished Pink. To my eye, this is a ‘proper’ pink at the blue end of the colour, which I much prefer to the orange end.
I stamped the sentiment in Polished Pink ink, used a Shimmer Vellum (in Polished Pink) for the first mat and wrapped Polished Pink ribbon around the mats. I almost added Polished Pink InColor Jewels, but as I had run out on the sheet I have open, added the Iridescent Jewels instead.
For the green version of this card, I chose to use a mat of Just Jade and a card base of Pear Pizzazz (a colour I don’t often use). I added a piece of Just Jade and Gold ribbon and balanced that with the sentiment stamped in Just Jade Ink.
This time I added some Genial Gems around the sentiment, which was stamped in Just Jade ink. Technically the Genial Gems are in Mint Macaron, but they work really well on any of the blue/greens. Not sure which is my favourite. Why not let me know which you prefer in the comments?
