Just Add Ink #348

Hey Everyone

Time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink!  This week our challenge for you is to;

Just Add Ombre

I tried a few different ways of adding Ombre to my card but in the end I added on a little Ombre to the bottom corner of my card.  The three colours I used were Pink Pirouhette, Blushing Bride & Melon Mambo.  I then stamped some flowers from Stampin’ Up!s Penned and Painted in Blushing Bride/Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sky/Pool Party.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Beautiful You.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #276

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch hostess this week is the wonderfully talented Amy O’Neill.  Amy creates gorgeous cards and can combine colours like no other!

I’ve chosen a hot air balloon as the focal point from Stampin’ Up!s Up and Away Thinlit dies. I chose a white balloon with black card stock underneath to make it stand out.  I then sponged a bit of Soft Sky on the background and stamped the water droplet type stamp from Timeless Textures for a bit of extra interest. I sponged a tinge of blue around my clouds so they weren’t as stark and so you could see the edges of the clouds.  My sentiment is from For You and is heat embossed on black card stock with white embossing powder.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #275

Hey Everyone

It’s that time again where it’s my turn to design the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  As always, I feel the pressure when it’s my turn to come up with a card.

So my idea for this card started off with Blushing Bride and hearts, but this is how it ended up…..not pink and no hearts. The Stampin’ Up! stamp set I’ve used is Jar of Love and I’ve used a sentiment with Greetings Thinlits.

Just Add Ink #346

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week our challenge is for you to:

Just Add Two – Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies

It’s been ages since I’ve used Picture Perfect.  Funny really, when you know I love a flower stamp – you’d think I’d have used it more than I have.  I’ve stamped two flowers in Blushing Bride and Basic Black.  To add a little something extra to my card I added two little butterflies from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Kindness Matters.  I stamped them in Basic Black and water coloured tips of their wings with Pool Party.

Here’s my card

Does anyone else see a newly released stamp set and think there’s no way you’d ever buy it?  That was me with Dragonfly Dreams. When I saw the lovely creations people were making, I caved and got it. I laugh now because I am totally in love with it! Why did I ever think I wouldn’t use it?

I love everything about this sketch.  I had lots of plans to create a masculine card, but somehow I’ve ended up with another floral card.  Oh well – I find that I need more feminine floral cards anyway.

Here’s my card:

I’ve taken inspiration from the pool and used Pool Party as the main colour on my card.  I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Penned and Painted and have given my Watercolor Pencils another run.
