Welcome to the Amber Ink Grand Opening Blog Frolic! Today the Amber Ink store officially opens its doors, and you are invited to hang out with us! We've also invited some special friends to participate, in addition to the Brilliant th(Ink)Tank Girls, so get ready to drool!
For my first card, I used a layout from Clean and Simple stamping....
Along with one of my favorite images of the puffy fish from the set Can I Keep Him which is finally available in the Amber Ink store today. I just love the way the rick rack imitates the look of seaweed waving in the ocean. The last puffy fish is up on a pop dot, the sentiment is computer generated and the paisley ipaper is available today too.
I'm probably really late to the game on this little tip, but the ipaper is totally cool if you print it out on vellum!! I don't know why that never occurred to me before, but I LOVE this idea!
I used this beautiful gradient pink dolphin paper as an overlay on a white card base. This design is just so beautiful that it stands on its own...I don't even think water theme when I see this card. I adore multiple use items and versatility. The medallion on front of my card was created with another sheet of darker companion ipaper available in the shop today as well.
Pink and black is such a striking color combination and my ruffled ribbon was created by scrunching it along a piece of tacky tape.
I wish the photo captured the true beauty of the light shining though the vellum....Stunning!
Not only do we have eye candy for you, but we're giving away some secret hidden prizes along the way. You won't know where they are hiding, so make sure to leave some love wherever you go. Winners will be chosen from the comments on the pre-selected blog posts.
Without further ado, here's the list of genius...go forth and comment!
