Artful INKables Blog Hop and Release Day!

Can you believe it's another release day for Artful INKables? We are showcasing the new sets being released today with another blog hop, so if you are arriving here from Jackie Rakoski's blog, you are on the right track. If not, start at the Artful INKables blog which is the beginning of the hop.

I'm sharing a great set that is geared toward Valentine's Day (yes, I said Valentine's Day!), but it can be used for a variety of other occasions. It's called Love Ya Lots.

I was thinking all day about how I was going to do this card. This stamp is a very solid line image that if stamped in black ink would be more like a silhouette, which would look very cool. I wanted it to be more soft and feminine, so I took out my water color crayons, water color paper, and mister. I colored the flower in two shades of pink and the stem and leaves in two shades of green. Then I spritzed it with water and stamped it on the paper. I love this look! It's just so soft and pretty! It was then cut and embossed with the Labels Four die and I cut and embossed another larger one in black. The dp is Eva from Basic Grey and the pink card stock is Pink Pirouette. I added the sentiment, pewter Kaiser pearls, and the pink satin ribbon.

So do you want to see more of the new releases? Hop over to
Emily Niehaus's blog to continue on the hop. Thanks for stopping in today and enjoy your Sunday!

(I was having trouble getting to Emily's blog for some reason, so here is the address for her blog in case you can't link to it: http://emmielouwho.blogspot.com/ I keep getting hung up there and it freezes on me. If this is happening to you as well, hop over to Deb's blog. She is the last one on the hop!)
