Elegant English Garden - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

It is that exciting time of month again ... the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team is sharing our monthly Facebook Projects.

I instantly fell in love with this paper and stamp set when I opened the Artisan box. I have used it a couple of times now. (You may remember the post about my party decor for my demonstrator team). This week I have an adorbs card for you!

I did a few fun things with this card. Here is the skinny ...

Friends greeting
I used Night Of Navy to stamp the greeting. It was listed in the color combo for the designer series paper but I felt like it was a little too dark. I inked the stamp, stamped off on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped my Whisper White banner (with out re-inking in between stamping). This gave the perfect shade but a teeny bit lighter.

Friends background
Ink only the "friends" portion of the stamp with Crumb Cake. This is super easy to do with a Photopolymer stamp set. Simply ink the stamp on the edge of the ink pad so that only the "friends" is inked. Like above, I wanted a lighter stamped image so I used the stamp off technique.

Honeycomb background
I inked the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Hello Honey ink and used that as a stamp. I did not run it through the Big Shot, just stamped with it on the Shimmer White Cardstock.

Next on the bog hop is Mercedes Weber
