Just Add Ink #368

Hey Everyone

There’s a new challenge waiting for you at Just Add Ink.  This weeks challenge is for you to:

When you’ve had no sleep after babysitting a 1yo and a 3yo you really should read the challenge before you make a card……  With my tired eyes and fuzzy mind I thought the challenge was something like create a Christmas card using a non-traditional stamp set.  So I came up with this card using Oh So Succulent:

I then went to load my card and realised it was supposed to be a Christmas card using a birthday set.  Even though Oh So Succulent has a birthday sentiment in it, I wasn’t sure it fit the challenge 100%, so I scrambled and made the following card using Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  I created a wreath with the leaves from this set and stamped the little flowers in red to make them look like poinsettias.

The girls at Just Add Ink have created wonderful inspiration for you – so head over to Just Add Ink and take a look.  We would love it if you could play along.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Love both of your cards and I think they would both qualify for using a birthday set for a Christmas card.

  2. Your cards are lovely! But I just love the inventive use of stamps in the second card and the colors with the dotted dsp!

  3. Love both of your cards Narelle! They are both amazing! I would have let the first one pass. Both cards are fabulous inspiration to get thoughs creative ideas for non-traditional Christmas cards. Love them! Rochelle xo

  4. Narelle you have aced this challenge twice! I love how your succulent cluster flows around the sentiment and how clever (and fiddly) to make a wreath from tiny leaves! They are both classically timeless! xxx

  5. Wow, Narelle both of these are totally gorgeous and such clever ideas! I love the non traditional colours of your succulent version and the elegance of your black and white combo and delicate wreath of the second. Xx

  6. Love them both Narelle! The succulent card would have worked, its stunning! But l do love your second creation, the black accents are really beautiful! xx

  7. Both cards are stunning – and well done for the second, but the first was perfect!!! Hope you’ve caught up on sleep. I never love my kids more than when they are asleep!!! Kelly x
