Artistically Inked, Birthday Card, 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I went to take a look at my scheduled posts and this card was missing it's photo.  Now, not having the greatest memory, I thought I forgot to add the photo.  So I went the post back to draft mode and was going to add the photo.  Everything was gone.  My whole post was gone, photo, links and words were all gone.  UGH. Thisis very disheartening because now I have to try to remember what I wrote and anything different I did.  SO, here it goes.

The original card came from a video that Terri Gaines posted on YouTube.  She's a phenomenal stamper. I love the techniques she uses and the way she makes her cards. Even with only a single stamp and a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) she can make a card look SO elegant.  Much like today's card. It has her name written all over it!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Pumpkin Pie card stock.  Using this color you can make this card work from spring to late fall.  This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

Two 4" x 5-1/4" pieces of Basic White card stock was cut. One for the inside and one for the front. The front piece was stamped on the left side using the long watercolor image in the "Artistically Inked" set and Pumpkin Pie ink. The stamp takes care of the light and dark areas on it's own. I love that look on the stamps.  The words were also done using Pumpkin Pie ink. You will want to do them before you texture the piece.

The piece was then textured using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder and glued in place on the front of the card.

The circle was die cut using the two largest circle dies in the "Layering Circles" die set using gold foil card stock.  I also cut the open leaves using gold card stock. They are from the "Artistically Inked" bundle. It was cut in half and both pieces were used to make the card.

The flower is from the "Artistically Inked" set and was stamped using a modified Rock n Roll technique. I'll et Terri show you how it's done. You will be amazed and will probably never use the old way again.  The flower was sprayed with rubbing alcohol and then scrunched up and then straightened out and set aside to dry.

The leaves were stamped using Granny Apple Green ink and were die cut and then sprayed and scrunched like the flower was. I forgot to do that to my leaves but they still look good.  

The flower center was stamped and die cut out. The center was also stamped with the dotted image and Versa Mark with gold embossing powder added.  

After the card was assembled the rhinestones were added and the card was done.

I SO love the look of this card. I love the look of the modified Rock n Roll technique. I had to try it twice when I made this card because I loved the look so much and it was so easy. It also mutes the color to it's not so bright.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to see this fun modified technique,
