Artistically Inked: Matching Stamps to Die Cuts


One of the most common complaints I get from stampers is that they don’t feel comfortable designing their own cards. I totally understand. But there are SO many ideas out there – including 3 new ones every week just from Maker Mornings with Meg! So in my videos, I want to share the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of card design, so solve the ‘no ideas’ problem for stampers.


This card features 1 set of card elements with the Artistically Inked stamp set and suite, but SIX different ways to assemble them, each with its own ‘how and why’. Be sure to tell me which version you like best in the video comments!

I love the way the stamped images and die cut elements come together to make terrific projects. In fact, my favorite was an accident that happened while I was putting this card together on our video. Don’t you love happy accidents?


I ended up placing this panel inside the card – the perfect complement to the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper with its gold foil elements.

EDITED 9/20/21 TO ADD: Love these projects? Want the downloadable PDF tutorial? Good news!! The month may be over and I have a new tutorial available for free with purchase now, but the LovenStamps Expressions in Ink PDF Tutorial (4 projects, including this one) is available for purchase in the LovenStampsCardMart on Etsy!
