Just Add Ink #423

Hey Everyone

There’s a new challenge for you to try at Just Add Ink.  Our challenge for you is to create a project using the colours below:

I saw these colours and thought easy peasy – except when I got to the Soft Suede.  After a few ideas (all bad), I decided to keep it to a minimum and use a smidge of it on my teddy and a small strip of it under the sentiment.

The images I’ve used on my card are from Stampin’ Up!s Moon Baby.  This sweet little image is one that I haven’t had a chance to ink up yet.  I’m trying to make sure I use most of the images at least once from all of my stamp sets.  I’ve found I gravitate towards the same ones all the time.

No DSP on this card as I couldn’t find one in my stash that I really loved to go with my image.  Instead I played around with layout until I found a fullness that I like on my cards.

I love the cards the Design Team have created.  Pop over to the challenge, but clicking here, to see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

CAS(E) this Sketch #285

Hey Everyone

We have had one cold and wet weekend here in Melbourne. It’s been a great day for crafting in my craft cave with my heater on and catching up Netflix while I created.  I made a card for this weeks sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. Sketches are my favourite and this fab sketch gave me a chance to create a baby card.

Stampin’ Up!s Little Twinkle Stamp Set is a sweet little set for baby card. The constellation heart is just gorgeous and I’ve been wanting to use it as soon as I opened my latest order.  I gave it a light watercolour and added some darker shade to some of the shapes with Blushing Bride Ink.  I also added an Artisan Pearl for a little bit of twinkle to go with the sentiment.  The sentiment is also from this set and I think it adds a fun-ness to a baby card.  I also used the star background stamp in patches and then added some circle and star punches made with my Twinkle Builder Punch.  The designer series paper I’ve used is from 6″ x 6″ Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #333

Hey Everyone

It’s my turn to be sketch hostess this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  We would love it if you could play along with our challenge.

You know I love circles, so of course of I had to put them on my sketch:

I caught up with my niece on Christmas day and she told me her exciting news that I was going to be a Great Aunt again! Or should I say she’s going to be a first time mum?  I’d like to think it was about me too, but it really is all about her….. Her baby is due in May and she’s going to have a little boy.  I chose this teepee stamp from Stampin’ Up!s Little One to use for her baby card and the sentiment I’ve used is from Sunshine Wishes.  I’m hoping she likes it!

Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and see what the team have created – as always you know they’re going to be creative cards!

Thanks for stopping by.

Just Add Ink #370

Hey Everyone

It’s Friday here in Australia and it’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week is sketch week and I’m the sketch designer.  I’ve created the following sketch for you:

After yesterday’s baby card I decided to make another one.  I wanted to use Moon Baby, a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that hadn’t seen ink – until today.

I also used my Embossing Paste for a project that I actually liked.  My previous attempts have ended up in the bin……  I’ve used various stamps from Moon Baby and given them a light watercolour.  My moon baby is also lightly watercoloured with Soft Sky Ink and then fussy cut and raised with dimensionals.

The designer series paper is from the same DSP pack as I used yesterday.  It’s called Naturally Eclectic and and I like that it matches my Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Here’s my card:

We would love it if you could join us with this challenge.  To inspire you, the design team have created gorgeous cards – head over to Just Add Ink and take a look.

Just Add Ink #313

Hey Everyone

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

Just Add B

So that means we want you to create something starting with the letter B on your project.  I decided to create a baby card and have used the following things starting with B  – bee, black DSP, button, bakers twine & I’ve created a baby card.  It’s loaded with B’s!  All of my DSP and bakers twine were hanging around in a basket of unused stuff on my desk. Love it when I can use up some of the leftovers from this basket.

I don’t really have many baby cards up my sleeve so I made this one to had at the ready if I need one. I gave my last one away to my newest great niece who was born a few weeks ago.  She was born a wee bit early and is a tiny little miss.  Now that she’s at her birth date, she’s still under 5lb.  I finally got my first hold last week and when her mother turned her back, I managed to sneak a few photos of her! I’m loving her sweet little face <3!
