cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!, Sunday Suites


Back with Sunday Suites. And today let’s check out the Expressions in Ink Suite. I have been playing with the stamps and dies lately which I will share with you soon, but it would be good to see all this suite more closely.

We have the complete Expressions in Ink Suite Collection.

This includes the –

Artistically Inked Stamp Set
Artistic Dies
Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper
Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack

The Expressions in Ink Specialty Designer Series Paper is just gorgeous.

How pretty is it?? The paper has gorgeous florals but oh so lovely Gold Foiling touches. It is hard to see these in the photo.

The colours in the paper are Evening Evergreen, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Mint Macaron, Pale Papaya, Pear Pizzazz, Polished Pink, Shaded Spruce, gold.

There is also the Expressions in Ink Ephemera pack.

In this pack receive 50 precut foil pieces: 5 sheets of 10 pieces each. The Sheet size: 5″ x 5-1/2″ (12.7 x 14 cm). Also 100 adhesive-backed sequins: 4 mm in pink. They will add a very lush touch to your projects.

So what about some samples with this suite. (straight from the Catalogue!).

Let’s have a closer look at this wreath. It is so pretty. The “leaf spray” is diecut from the patterned paper giving a really cool effect. This would make a lovely scrap page wouldn’t it??

On this card below add a piece of vellum over the stamped white card to soften the effect. Then add some diecut flowers over the piece diecut in white card.

A simple card with a cool tassel made from white twine.

If you love any of these beautiful products they are now available to order.

I think one of my new favourite bundles is the Flowers of Friendship. And to think I dismissed it several times going through the catalogue!

It is such a sweet set and I love the versatility of the punch. For this card though I have just used the stamp and coloured it with the Stampin’ Blends.

The paper strip is from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. Add a little twine and a little pearl to finish. It’s just a sweet card.

What more do you need really when you make a card? Some pretty paper and a sentiment.

The paper from the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper with lots of fluttering dragonflies makes for a very quick card. I added some strips of the striped paper behind it for added contrast. Just use strips too. Don’t use a whole piece of the paper behind it as it is wasted.

I added some loops of the Midnight Muse Twine behind the sentiment with a small punched Bumblebee dragonfly.

The Dandy Garden paper is retiring and leaving VERY SOON. It is reduced too. 🙂

Wednesday’s WOW! #124 – Stamp before you stick.

I get asked this question a lot. Do you stamp before you stick? Do you stamp before you punch or diecut? Check the video for the answer that might help you and there are some other stamping tips to help you out.

If you are a long-time stamper you might know these already but there might be something you didn’t know. If you are just starting out in your stamping journey then I think you will find this helpful.

Sara (the Stampin’ Up! CEO) shares the tips in this video and she is mentioning the new kits but these tips will help you with any projects you create. Of course any of these kits or other products are available in my store.

Tell me what you found helpful in this video.

Would you like more videos and stamping tips? Let me know.

I have shared many already. Just click on the “tag” stamping tips or videos or techniques. You might be surprised what you will find.

This card I’m sharing with you today I made as a sample card for my Flowers of Friendship class recently.

This card is a very easy, quick one to make. I came across this idea scrolling through Pinterest but I didn’t save the actual card so not sure who inspired me now. Sorry. 🙂

The flowers were stamped on the Petal Pink print in the Subtles Designer Series Paper stack. The great thing … you don’t have to colours the flowers. That makes for such a quick card.

They were stamped in Memento black with the sentiment. Before adhering the piece to the white card mat wrap some of the Lace Trim around.

I think I should try this with some of the other colours. That would look cool!

Wednesday’s WOW! #123 is a fun one this week. What’s your Incolor?? Now I don’t mean what is your favourite. I mean what is your personality colour. This could be interesting.

I’m sure you have met all the new Incolors by now. I have to say I’m still not sure what my favourite is. It keeps changing. They are all so lovely.

Did you know that there is a personality behind each colour?? Why not take a quick test and see what colour you come up to be. I will share mine.


I would love to hear what your colour is. Drop me a comment and tell me.

My personality colour is…

PALE PAPAYA. It was 58%. Not too high but it is a close description I think.

I’m not so much outgoing and let loose, but anyway…it’s close.

Why not try it yourself and let me know,

Have a great day,
