Artful INKables New Release Blog Hop!!!

Today is the day! Please come and join us on the blog hop for Artful INKables
The new sets are really fabulous and oh so versatile! Hop on over to Velta's blog next! When you are through please don't forget to stop by to visit Kristin, the talented artist who created all of these lovely stamp designs.


This set is SO much fun, I love it! There are 14 images in this set called Three Wishes. I'll be posting more cards with this set later today so please stop by again. I colored this with Copic markers and highlighted with the Sakura gel pen Star Dust. Card base is Cool Caribbean and I used the border stamp from this set embossed in silver for the side edges. I embossed the lamp in silver on Brushed Silver cardstock, cut it out and added some wisps of cotton coming from the lamp.


This set is called Greek Garden, a set of 7 that includes 3 sentiments and 4 Greek statuary and floral images.
I colored this image in with Copic Markers and used K and Co. paper along with some aged brass hardware and pale green organdy ribbon.
