Just Add Ink #401 | Sketch Challenge

Hello there stamping friends! Welcome to another new and wonderful challenge from Just Add Ink. A fun sketch from fellow team member Tina do we have for you this week!

I've pretty much followed the sketch to the 'T', which is unlike me, but if you want to change it up a bit why not turn the sketch on its side to the landscape position for a different look.
I've used the Stampin' Up! True Gentleman DSP as the focal point for my card today. I love the bold, rich, luxurious feel that this paper gives. Really creates that smart, elegant and sophisticated look to any card.

The stamped sentiment comes from the Truly Tailored Stamp set that also co-ordinates with the DSP from the same True Gentleman Suite in the 2108 Occasions Catalogue. To get that rich inking of the Night of Navy Classic Ink I lined up the stamp and the cardstock on the Stamparatus stamp placement tool, inked up the stamp and stamped it down and then just kept re-inking and stamping till you get that deep, rich colour. The beauty about the Stamparatus is that if you don't get the ink stamped down with the right amount of coverage you just keep re-inking and stamping as nothing moves out of place and you don't have to line everything up every time. Boom! Makes it so easy! 

Also from the same product Suite is the Oh So Gorgeous Corduroy Ribbon. That stuff is beautiful and also adds to that rich and luxurious feel of this suite. Hopefully we will see this ribbon in some more colours as it's amazing! Also for some more gorgeous embellishment are those stunning True Gentleman Buttons. The team up so well with the Linen Thread.

To finish off the card I teamed up some ribbon and embellishments from the Annual Catalogue that have some of the same colours in the DSP - Tranquil Tide Finely Woven Ribbon and the Mini Tassels Assortment. Super fun!
