I’m back again with another card made with the Stampin’ Up! Artistically Inked Stamp Set. I swear, it is impossible to mess up a single card with this stamp set. I know it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, given the very artistic nature of the alcohol art ink look, but please trust my stamp of extreme approval on this bundle!
This card features a custom-made background and even though it is underneath the Golden acetate, it still shines through and makes a bold statement.

Find all my events and classes in one place! Have you ever used Meetup? What is Meetup? Meetup is a service used to organize online groups that host in-person and virtual events for people with similar interests. My vision for this group is to gather crafters together -- online and/or in person (when possible) -- for a fun time creating projects, learning new techniques, and of course, meeting other likeminded crafters. This group is for anyone and everyone, no matter your skill level. This group is open to everyone, globally!
I schedule events for making cards, scrapbooking, gift packaging, and more. I also coordinate my card classes to go via Meetup.
