Inked & Tiled with Shades and Shadows
The Inked & Tiled stamp set is one that I fell in love with when the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue came out. I love the imagery of the flowers with a shadowed look. The images from the Inked & Tiled stamp set have a very artsy feel to them and almost a vintage style.
The stamps also have an elegant and classy look that might be good for a wedding or even a sympathy card. The greetings in the Inked & Tiled stamp set have a clean font that makes them perfect to do heat embossing.
If you are just starting out with card making and rubber stamping, this is a great beginner set as it has six greetings included in the stamp set, including the popular “Happy Birthday” and “Thank You.” My favourite greeting in the stamp set is the “Just a Note” as you can use that greeting for anything.
You can see all of the supplies I used to make this card below. You can get the stamp set as part of a bundle (with 10% off) with the Inked and Tiled Punch Pack. These are two punches might look like they would make puzzle pieces at first glance.
Here’s how you can use the Inked and Tiled Punches:
- Make a fun background using the shapes together.
- Stamp a greeting (like I did on this card).
- Use the “x” shaped one and cut off the “arms” to make a small notch for a greeting (see card below)
- Create a flower out of the star shaped punch (see card below)
To create the card in this blog post, I created the shaded background with the Stampin’ Up! Blends markers. See more about Blends markers here. I started with Bubble Bath Light and then Dark and then moved on to Fresh Freesia. Be sure to see the video for how I blended each colour.
I stamped the main flower image with Blackberry Bliss ink and then stamped it again, slightly offset with Fresh Freesia ink to give it the shadow effect. The greeting was stamped on Bubble Bath cardstock to tie in all of the pink and purple colours. The gems can be found in Stampin’ Up’s Annual Catalogue. I picked the Fresh Freesia gems to tie into my colour scheme. I love these pinks purple colours together.
