Just Add Ink #374

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge for you at Just Add Ink.  This week is inspiration picture week.  Take a look at this fabulous pic. So many possibilities with this one.  I can’t wait to see your take on this challenge!


As a huge coffee lover, you’d think I’d go with a coffee themed card, but instead I chose to make a card with the neutral colours from the pic.

Seasonal Layers Thinlit Dies has so many wonderful dies in the set.  I’ve used a combination of leaves and chair die and layered them with some Burlap Ribbon and Copper Trim.  I also stamped the tiny flowers from Colorful Seasons stamp set and fussy cut them just for extra layering.  The sentiment is also from this set.  I am loving everything about this set – especially the pretty font in all the sentiments.

For the background, I’ve sponged Crumb Cake Ink and added the ink splatters stamp from Swirly Bird in Early Espresso Ink.  To tie in with my neutral toned card, I then finished off my card with some copper sequins.

 

The design team have created wonderful cards to inspire you.  I love that we all create such different cards using the same picture.  Head over to Just Add Ink and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Just Add Ink #372

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week is a colour challenge. Take a look at these pretty colours.

I’ve gone with a clean card today letting the colours pop off the white background.  The flowers I’ve used are from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  They’re stamped in Powder Pink and Pool Party.  To add Tranquil Tide, I placed a strip of card stock under my panels.   I also added a strip of Pool Party to tie everything together.

The sentiment I’ve used is from Colorful Seasons.  I stamped this in Basic Black Ink and the flourish-y outline stamp in Pool Party, from Label Me Pretty, and then used the matching Pretty Label Punch to punch my label out.  The ink splatters in the background are Swirly Bird – these are from Swirly Bird.

Here’s my card:

CAS(E) This Sketch #232

Hey Everyone

I’ve had a weekend of play in my craft room – woohoo!  I managed to get in front with my design team cards for the next couple of weeks and then I had time to play along with another challenge.

The card I’ve made is for this great sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge.

By now you may’ve noticed a love a flower stamp set……haha – as if you didn’t know that!  I knew Graceful Garden was a must-have in my first Stampin’ Up! order from the new catalogue.  I used my Calypso Coral Watercolor Pencil to colour in the petals and then my matching Calypso Coral Marker to give the petals definition.  These rose stamps have leaves and a stem attached to them, but I trimmed the leaves off the images once I coloured them and placed them under the roses.  The leaves are lightly watercoloured with Old Olive Ink.

The strip of designer series paper is from Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack.  There are so many pretty papers in this stack that I can’t stop using!  The sequins are copper (even though they make not look it in my photo) and I’ve paired them with some Copper Trim under my sentiment.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Colorful Seasons – the font in this set really appeals to me.

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
