Just Add Ink #484

Hey Everyone

It’s Friday, so that means a new sketch at Just Add Ink. This week is a colour challenge.  Here’s the colours that we’ve all used to create our cards:

I realised I haven’t made many cards lately with the Free As A Bird Stamp Set.  So I decided I would use it for this weeks challenge.  The image I’ve used has been stamped with Black Memento Ink and I’ve used a combination of Blushing Bride/Smoky Slate and Highland Heather/Smoky Slate Blends on my birds.  I then took Balmy Blue and sponged the background behind the bird and branch image.  The leaves have been given a light colour with Smoky Slate Ink. I then added a strip of Highland Heather Cardstock under the sentiment to bring all the colours together.  I embossed the background with my Scripty 3D Embossing Folder to add some texture to my card.  I then finished off my card with three Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

The team at Just Add Ink have created gorgeous cards to inspire you. Head over to the challenge and see what they’ve designed.  We would love it if you could play along with the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Just Add Ink #472

Hey Everyone

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

My initial thought was to create a Christmas Card.  In the end I’ve gone with what isn’t a Christmas card at all……sometimes that just happens 🙂

I started with two different papers from Woven Threads DSP.  I then chose Free As A Bird Stamp Set and coloured my birds with a combination of Ivory and Crumb Cake Blends.  For the leaves I chose Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive Blends.  I then fussy the image out and layered it on a strip of Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim, Crumb Cake Cardstock and a sentiment.  To finish off my card, I added three rhinestones from my Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

Here’s my take on the sketch:

I can’t wait to see what you create with this weeks sketch.  If you’d like some inspiration for the sketch, head over to Just Add Ink and see what the Design Team have created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #399

Hey Everyone

Wednesday’s mean a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch designer this week is Jen Brum.  She is super talented at card making, but also just as super talented at sketch designing.

This is such a great sketch with so many possibilities!  My Free As A Bird Stamp Set was the first set that came to mind when I saw the sketch.  My little birds have been given colour with a combination of my Crumb Cake and Pool Party Blends. The leaves and flowers were given a quick colour with my Old Olive and Melon Mambo Blends.  To add a little colour to the background of my squares, I daubed Pool Party Ink lightly with my dauber.  The sentiment I’ve used on my card is also from Free As A Bird Stamp Set.  It seems I was off with my stamping on the weekend and ruined two pieces of Whisper White Cardstock, so my Stamparatus came to the rescue with lining up the sentiment. I really need to remember to use it rather than wasting cardstock like I do!

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created wonderful cards using Jen’s sketch.  Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.
