More from Papertrey Ink Irresistibly Ikat

Another beautiful color story from PDCC # 185:


Not a lot of explanation needed for this ‘recipe’ – Papertrey Ink’s Irresistibly Ikat set does the talking for me!  Ink colors are Hero Arts Raspberry Jam and Soft Granite, and Stampin Up!s Island Indigo.  Stickles in Lagoon, Magenta and Tiara along with some HL glitter alphas finish.

This set admittedly can be somewhat intimidating because it gives you pieces, but the puzzle is yours.  What I mean by this is there is no set pattern that is to be stamped, you can create whatever you want – with whatever colors you want!  I found this pattern by Googling ‘Irresistibly Ikat’ and found a card with this pattern.  Of course now that I tried Googling it again I can’t find it and just spend 20 minutes looking so if this pattern is yours give me a shout and I will happily give you credit for it.

I have made some other cards with this same set, and it is amazing how different every card looks just by changing the pattern and ink colors.

 So Happy For You Card

Grazie Coffee Card

I think the key is to experiment and have fun – which, isn’t what this lovely card making hobby is all about? Open-mouthed smile
