Smeared Ink New Release Blog Hop

I love new releases! It means I have new things to play with! Today I am sharing a card that I made using one of the 4 brand spankin’ new sets form Smeared Ink.

This is Inky Dreams. Isn’t it fabulous??? There are a bajillion things I can do with this set! But for now, I’ll share just one…


I used the Smudgy Fingers Inky Dreams sentiments, along with the Inky Badge. That stamp is HUGE!

For this card, I stamped, inked, smeared, smudged and Stickled…and man, was it fun!!! There’s ink, Glimmer Mist, Stickles, and chalk on the card. Here’s a close up.


Check out all the Glimmer Mist!!! You can click on any of the photos to see it bigger. I smeared Stickles inside the blobs and sprays of ink. I like the added texture a lot.


Did you notice my new punch??? From the devil herself…Martha Stewart. It’s called Cracks. I thought it was perfect for these images!

Please be sure to visit the rest of the S&S Design Team to see more fantastic creations using the brand new stamp sets!
