Just Add Ink #438

Hello Everyone,

Here’s this week’s Just Add Ink challenge entry…..

Which colour would you choose?

Why not stop by the Just Add Ink blog and see what the design team have made here

I have used the Painted Harvest stamp set for my project. I added Crumb Cake to the colour combo!

This stamp set makes it so easy to create a great card.

The first floral layer was stamped off once to add some depth to the finished image.

Crumb Cake compliments the bright pink and green perfectly. This was used to stamp the sentiment and made the base of the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Just Add Ink #431 Sketch Challenge

Good Morning,

Another sketch challenge coming at ya today courtesy of the Just Add Ink team.

You can see what the design team have made on the blog here

So….. I decided to put a “twist” on the sketch, mainly because I didn’t like the origin orientation with the design I chose.

I began by embossing a card layer with the Curls and Swirls embossing folder, and adhering this to a white card base.

A 1-1/4 inch strip of Frosted Floral DSP was adhered to some white card stock. Half a pearlized doily was then added to the back. The strip was then added to the card with dimensionals.

The additional elements were stamped with Mint Macaron or Highland Heather inks and Die cut with the coordinating Framelits. These were secured with a mix of Multipurpose glue and dimensionals.

Some basic adhesive sequins finished the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The supplies used are listed below.

With Love – Just Add Ink #424

Hello Everyone.,

Welcome to another challenge entry… I usually do these on Mondays, but this week has been a bit crazy getting ready for a new school term.

This week the challenge is…

You can see what the design team have made here.

My design features a new embossing folder called Tin Tile, it’s so pretty! I just used white card stock which I mounted on to a black card base.

The inner panel is 1-1/2 inches smaller so the the embossing is still visible.

A combination of Artisan Textures and Beautiful Blizzard was used to add the texture to this panel. Smoky Slate, Gray Granite and Black Memento Ink were used.

The sentiment also comes from Beautiful Blizzard… Just goes to show that there are uses beyond Christmas…. This was cut with the Darling Label punch.

Some black satin ribbon was added across the middle, with a small bow attached.

For a final bit of bling and extra texture a few pearl sequins were also used.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Hi Everyone,

I hope those of you in the UK are enjoying the Bank Holiday.

Today I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenge.

This is an interesting combination, see what the design team have made here!

And this is what I have created featuring the Follow Your Dreams stamp set and dies.

I built the background first using the Artisan Textures stamp set. To soften this a little, a Vellum overlay was placed over the top. The panel was added to a Basic Grey card base.

There are lots of layers on the dream catcher.

First, the largest image was stamped in Basic Grey and Die cut.

The additional layers were cut from Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede card stock. These were secured together with a silver brad.

The large feathers were cut from white card stock and Soft Suede ink was added to the ends with a sponge dauber. The smaller feathers were stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on to matching card before Die Cutting and adding to the dream catcher.

The Friendly Expressions stamp set was used for the sentiment which was heat embossed with silver powder.

This was cut with the Pretty Label Punch and adhered with dimensionals. A few silver pearls completed the card.

Thinking of You – Just Add Ink #418

Good Morning Everybody!

Today I am sharing my entry for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge.

The design team have made some great inspirational projects. You can see them here!

I found this set of colours tricky… The Daffodil Delight is very bright compared to the other colours in the palette.

This is what I created.

I decided to use Daffodil Delight designer series paper for the background. A 4 inch square was cut diagonally, each portion being adhered into the corners of a Whisper White card base.

Soft Sea Foam ink was used to add some leaves to the gap.

I wanted a bold sentiment. I picked out “thinking of you” from the Rooted in Nature Stamp set. This was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and cut with a 2-1/4 inch circle punch.

Three flowers from the Pop of Petals stamp set were stamped with Blushing Bride ink and cut with the coordinating punch.

I used the Leaf punch to cut three sets of leaves from Soft Sea Foam card stock.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Good Morning Everyone,

I am playing along with the Just Add Ink challenging today.

The design team have provided lots of inspiration, you can see their work here!

I have used floral die cuts to make a frame.

A 2 inch punch was used to cut an aperture in a Whisper White card layer. The vellum circle was then added over the top with a tiny amount of multipurpose glue.

This panel was adhered to a piece of Soft Seam Foam card stock also with an aperture.

Dimensionals were used to add this panel to a Very Vanilla card base.

The floral die cuts were added around the edge of the vellum circle using multipurpose glue.
