A bit of Inkyness

Have you seen the Inkylicious You Tube channel? You can find it here. If you haven't watched it yet, do take a look at the demo Deby does with the Ink Duster starter kit.  I watched Deby's demo using just 4 ink pads to create so many different skies and had to have a go! The ink pads in question are all Memento - Dandelion, Rosebud, Danube Blue and Tuxedo Black. I also used the picture perfect stamps that come in the Ink Duster starter kit. My first was very much like the one Deby creates in the video.
I also used the 'For You' stamp set for the sentiment. There are lots of interchangeable greetings to put with the For you stamp. Next I thought I would go a little darker and larger, and was quite pleased with the result!
The birds and grasses are from the Picture Perfect set again. I also used some leaves from Flight of Dreams and the new twiggy branch that will be on the website soon

My last card has a background made with the same colours as mentioned above, but I used different colours to stamp with. This time I used the thistle (another new stamp), grass from the wild meadow set, Tree from Simply trees and sentiment from Flight of Dreams.  I also used memento inks in Lilac posies, olive grove and espresso truffle for the stamping. I have just realised what is missing from this one - birds! I think I have been inspired by all those welsh hills ;)
Thanks for looking!


  1. Stunning cards Sally...all beautiful. x

  2. I didn't know Inkylicious had a Youtube channel, so thanks for that! These cards are gorgeous, the second one is my favourite.

  3. All stunningly gorgeous! Can't wait to get the new stamps. Tell Deby to get them on the website asap! x

  4. Oh wow Sally! Absolutely beautiful work. And you reminded me that I have some never been used Inkylicious stamps here. Plus, there's one of the mountains and valleys templates hidden away in the Playground toy box :)

    Then I hopped on to check the video and also found some made by you. Great stuff!

    Hugs, Di xx

  5. Wow - love your inky cards here Sally. Will take a look at the Inkylicious You Tube channel. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Friday to you.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  6. Gorgeous cards Sally, already pinned to my Inky Magic board for inspiration. I have the scenic stamps from a recent order and was about to ink them this week for a birthday card so this post is perfectly timed for me. Thank you for the link to Deby's video, although I have watched her IRL at Ally Pally several times, I always feel there is something to learn. Great work and great inspiration, thank you! Elaine x

  7. All three of these cards are stunning Sally, the sky's are beautiful. Think the middle one is my favorite.

  11. These are beautiful Sally, every single one of them! Thanks for the link to the youtube channel too, I now realise I should be brushing rather than dabbing! :-) xx

  12. Wow!!! They are all gorgeous Sally, I have to admit I like using the brushes better than pads!I can't seem to get it to blended well with pads.
    These are all so beautifully inked though.
