Artistically Inked is Perfect For Any Occasion

This past weekend I needed a sympathy card for a very special lady and I wanted her to know just how much she means to me and how much I grieve with her. So, I decided to use the beautiful Artistically Inked bundle that is found on pages 96-97 in your annual catalog. It is a DistINKtive stamp set that creates almost a 3-D experience while also appearing to create alcohol blended elements. Mix this set with the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper and you have a real winner! I created my own gold elements but Stampin' UP offers a beautiful set of Expression in Ink Ephemera for you to do the same with an amazing collection of gold elements.

Here are the supplies I used as well as the dimensions that I used for all of the paper elements:
