Welcome to Cardz 4 Galz #150. Shell B. chose the theme of “Get Inky,” so take a look at the cards from the design team. I hope you find inspiration and look forward to seeing what you create!

Here’s my truly quick and easy card:


  • The Daffodil Delight card base measures 8-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • I paired the Daffodil Delight with Gorgeous Grape, and the mat measures 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
  • Believe it or not, the front panel of this card uses white cardstock. Since I needed a piece for the inside panel as well, I trimmed two pieces of white cardstock to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
  • I am still using up the last of the 2020-2021 brights 6 x 6 inch DSP. The piece on the bottom of the front of the card measures 1-3/4 inches by 4 inches.
  • At this point, I also trimmed another piece of the Gorgeous Grape DSP to 6 inches by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap. I adhered it immediately so I wouldn’t put it away, as I’ve been known to do.
  • That’s all the measuring.

What I Did:

  • Make sure you have grid paper, or something down to protect your work space before you begin. This will get a little bit messy when you start to splatter.
  • I used the blotch stamp from Artistically Inked and Daffodil Delight to randomly stamp all over one of the piece of white cardstock. Since this stamp is a Distinkive stamp, it automatically creates the texture and depth of color. Yeah! Score!

Let’s Get a Little Bit Messy

  • Now comes the messy part, but it’s so much fun! I used what I thought was my clear Wink of Stella, but now I think it might have been more of a rose gold color. It really doesn’t matter because it’s gorgeous!
    • Since my Wink of Stella pen was brand new, I gently squeezed it over my grid paper until I had a few drops on the grid.
    • I dipped the brush end into the ink, and then tapped it on the cap all over the white cardstock. All over it. I wound up with some larger spots and little tiny spots. I just kept dipping and tapping until I thought I’d had enough.
    • Here’s a close-up of some of my splatters:
  • Before going any further, I adhered the Gorgeous Grape DSP to the bottom of the front panel of the card using my fav multipurpose liquid adhesive.
  • Next, I stamped the sentiments, from the Biggest Wish photopolymer stamp set, in Gorgeous Grape.
    • I found out after I stamped “HAPPY” that the Wink of Stella makes a difference in the ink of the sentiment. However, I kind of like the results, so I stamped “birthday”.
  • The Gorgeous Grape ribbon goes around the white cardstock. Thankfully, I was able to create a pretty decent bunny ears bow. By placing it off-center on the left side of the front, I created a triangle of sorts of Gorgeous Grape.

Finishing Up

  • The Wink of Stella provides enough bling to the front of the card, but I thought it needed something else. After playing around in my embellishments, I decided to use three large yellow dots from the Playing with Patterns resin dots. The dots are Crushed Curry, but it just looks like the dark parts of the stamped front.
  • In order to create some height and interest, I put dimensionals under the purple front panel.
  • There’s a glue dot under the center part of the bow on the front of the card. The ribbon straddles where the two pieces of paper come together on the front.
  • Next, I trimmed the DSP on the envelope flap. I also punched a purple DSP circle for the envelope seal. After running it through the XYRON create-a-sticker machine, I’d finished this card/envelope/seal coordinated set.

It took me longer to type this post than it did to create the card.
