Artful INKables Blog Hop!

Hey everybody!!! You made it to the end!!! Did you see all of the INK Girls FABULOUS creations!?! These 4 new sets are awesome aren't they, and they are available TODAY here! Hopefully you made it to my blog from Elena's blog, but if not, make sure you start at the beginning which is Kristin's blog! Trust me, you don't want to miss anything! Here are the cards I've created so far with the two sets I have:
This first card was made using the Three Wishes set. I adore these darling genies~they are just too fun! I stamped the palace onto some dp from the Basic Gray Eva paper pad and cut it out with Labels Two Nestabilities. I stamped each genie, colored them in with Copics, cut them out, and popped them up on Dimensionals. I added Stardust Stickles to the veil on the girl genie. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with an oval punch. I sponged Ranger Antique Linen around the edges. I used my Fiskars border punch to create the decorative border and one of my Cuttlebug Vintage Dies for the corner embellishment. I added a straight stitch around the card and 3 black Kaiser pearls to the corner.



These next two card were made with the Bouquets & Butterflies set. Isn't this bouquet just beautiful! I adore it! Ok, I colored in the bouquet stamp directly with SU markers~Perfect Plum and Old Olive~gave it a huff and stamped it : ) I then colored in the flower portion again, stamped it, and cut the pieces out so I could pop them up with Dimensionals. I actually cut out one of the leaves too, so it wouldn't be cut off by the Oval Nestabilities : ) I stamped the butterfly with So Saffron twice, cut them out, layered them on top of each other, and added Kaiser pearls to the center along with some Stardust Stickles. I used my Scor-Pal for the lattice texture on the base of the card, and my Swiss Dots CB Folder for the dots on the white panel.


For my final card, I colored the image with Cameo Coral and did the same as I did with the previous card. The butterfly in the corner was colored with Cameo Coral and a black marker, I stamped it in the corner, stamped it again, cut out the wing portion and popped that up on Dimensionals. I made the rectangle frame using my Rectangle Nestabilities. The small butterflies are a Martha Stewart Punch and I added a Kaiser pearl to the center of each. The adorable charm can also be found at Artful INKables, along with several other fantastic charms and ribbon! I hope you like my creations, and these awesome sets! Now onto how you can win these sets for yourself!!!
