With Gratitude

Here's my card for this week's Muse challenge.  I was inspired by Therese's layout and multilayered stamped images.

With Gratitude card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Papertrey InkAfter a check of my stamp collection and the realization that I don't have many two step floral images that would lend themselves to the look I had in mind, I decided to do a fall take on the challenge.  I've also been wanting to play with my Radiant Neon inks a bit more and thought this would be a good opportunity to do that.  Yes, I used neon inks on this fall card! The Electric Yellow ink looks more muted when stamped on the kraft cardstock, doesn't it? 

After stamping one of the solid leaves from Papertrey Ink's Leaf Print repeatedly with the yellow ink, I stamped the detail layer on top in brown pigment ink.  Pretty!  The "with gratitude" sentiment from the Lovely Leaves set was stamped next to the leaves in the same brown ink.  I matted the finished stamped panel on dark brown cardstock, then adhered it to a golden yellow card base.

Materials Used:
Leaf Prints and Lovely Leaves stamp sets, Harvest Gold cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa and Radiant Neon Electric Yellow inks (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Chocolate Chip cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah)


  1. These inks look amazing and so does your card Lori!

  2. The neon ink does make you leaves look like a fall color. Very nice thinking to create a card using what you have.

  3. Pretty yellow take on this week's Muse, Lori - almost feels like fall! Thanks for joining us!

  4. The yellow against kraft looks so cool :) love it!

  5. Love your sunny version of the Muse card!
