Just Add Ink #199

Hey Everyone

It’s Just Add Ink time!  This week Tina has given a fabulous sketch to create our cards:


I’m having a seriously bad month with losing things as now I’ve lost the cutting tool for my circle scissor plus – one of my most used Stampin’ Up! tools.  For the life of me I can’t find it anywhere!  I’m just hoping it hasn’t rolled off my desk and into my bin.  If so, then it’s long gone with all my scraps 😦  Because I line a fine mat around my circles I’m cutting two circle the same size with my circle dies. I then trim one down by hand.  If my circles are looking a little off, it’s because of this.  If anyone’s got any tips on how not to lose things I’d be most grateful for your help!

I’m back to using Basic Black at the moment.  I really like how Coastal Cabana just pops when matted with black.  The flower I’ve used is from a Stampin’ Up! set called Simply Sketched and the sentiment I’ve used is from Petite Pairs.

Head over to Just Add Ink and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team. Even though we are using the same sketch, our cards are all so very different.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Gorgeous card. I agree, the black makes the Coastal Cabana pop. I love how you did the flower with the touch of color.
    Sorry you lost your tool for your circle scissors, hope you find it.

  2. Ha!…You make me laugh Narelle, your craftroom sounds like the black hole..:0) Too funny, can’t wait to hear next weeks!
    Your card is beautiful as always Narelle and if you hadn’t mentioned it, no one would have given your circles a second glance, they look perfect to me…Love the soft shades and colouring. xx

  3. Beautifully elegant Narelle and I just love your combo of Cabana and Black – it is very striking! Hope you find your cutter – at the least the mess is from creating – trying to see the positive side here! xxx

  4. Ha ha Narelle, your craft room must look like mine then if you are losing things while creating! I keep telling myself to put things back in the spot they came from as soon as I have used it…but I don’t listen to myself. Love this card and I agree the Coastal Cabana colour does ‘pop’ when mounted on black. With your vintage look, distressing edges, no one will know about the circles. Have a lovely weekend. xx

  5. Lol I hope you find your cutter. You’ve done a very good job with your circles considering you had to take to them with scissors – nice job! As always (and I’m really sorry I always say this – but it’s so true) another gorgeous creation from you. They’re all masterpieces! x
