Stampin' Up! Expressions In Ink Suite

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog.

And welcome to my first Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. I hope you enjoy my project from the Expressions In Ink Suite.

OH MY! Look at this paper! I am in love - of course I am in love, it is PINK! LOL. If you are new to my blog, I am happy to meet you and you may have guessed that my favourite colour is indeed ... Pink. Oh, and I also love anything foiled, especially gold, so combine to two together and I am in heaven.

I am so in love with this DSP and everything else in this Suite. The DSP does all the beautiful work for you. You should see the sheet of Evening Evergreen and I am not a green person but it was the first sheet I grabbed when I made a card last week. The stamp set is just gorgeous. I have played with the large flower image but I am planning on playing with the rest this week. I have used the large flower die on today's project which is just so pretty as is the leaf die which I think I am a little obsessed with. LOL.

Expressions In Ink Suite - $130.75 (#155459)

As you can see, I have raised the sentiment layers. I cut a triangle shape into each side of the polish pink layer to make it into a banner. You can also use the Banner Pick a Punch to do the job. The gold strip is just a left over piece I had which I cut down to the length I wanted. As for the sentiment, I stamped that in Versamark Ink, put white emboss powder over the top and heat set with my heat tool.

For that beautiful gold foil die cut piece, make sure to add your adhesive sheets to your gold foil sheets before you die cut. This will make things a lot easier when adhering to your project as along as you are adhering directly to another layer like I have done. Don't panic if you do forget, you will just need to dot some liquid glue around. You could certainly raise it using dimensionals, but it would be extremely fiddly as you would need to cut the dimensionals down to size and probably a pain to do.
