Just Add Ink #356

Hey Everyone

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

I decided to go with two balloons and two circles.  The Stampin’ Up! stamp set I have used is Balloon Adventures. I’ve love a layered card and have gone to town with circles and a banner and on top of those, a sentiment in a banner.  My balloons are coloured lightly with Watercolor Pencils and I stamped the background with a smidge of dots from Timeless Textures.

The team at Just Add Ink have created gorgeous cards to inspire you. Head over to Just Add Ink and check them out. While you’re there, we would love you to play along.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Freshly Made Sketches #280

Hey Everyone

Gee these weeks are flying! It’s Wednesday already and it’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This weeks sketch has been designed by Linda Callahan.  She creates really cool sketches and even more amazing cards! Head over to her blog and check them out!

I’m channeling my talented colour combining friend Amy O’Neill and have added more than my usual two colours to my card. The candles I’ve created are from Stampin’ Up!s Build A Birthday.  I have inked them up in Pool Party,  Sweet Sugarplum & Peekaboo Peach.  The flames are stamped in So Saffron and to give them a little more depth I added a little Daffodil Delight with my Watercolour Pencil.  I really like this sentiment from Balloon Adventures and know that I’ll be using it a lot from now on.

Here’s my card:

I love seeing everyone’s interpretations of the sketches.  Head over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look at the fabulous cards the design team have created.  We would love it if you could join in with our challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #279

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday again! We have a new sketch for you at Freshly Made Sketches and this week Rita Wright is our sketch hostess.  I love her cards and am always inspired with her creations.  If you haven’t visited her blog, then click here and check it out!

I have a niece who’s birthday is in a couple of weeks time.  She’s so lucky as she’s holidaying in America at the moment. The first part of her holiday was spent on a Disney Cruise and her request for her birthday was to spend it in New York.  One day I’ll get there myself……

I wanted to make a fun birthday card for her.  The balloons I’ve stamped are from Stampin’ Up!s Balloon Adventures.  I’ve stamped them in Melon Mambo and Pool Party.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Happy Celebrations. And because I’m a work in progress with a watercoloured background, I decided to use the watercolour type stamp from Timeless Textures.  I’ve stamped it Pool Party to just add a little bit of something behind the balloons.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #272

Hey Everyone

So it seems my bad week from last week has carried on to this week.  I completely forgot to schedule this post for Wednesday!  I’m going to blame being on holidays as I have totally lost track of days.

This weeks cool sketch at Freshly Made Sketches has been designed by the very talented Cecile Ribon!

I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Balloon Adventures for my card.  It gave me another chance to use my new Watercolor Pencils.  Here’s my card:

Just Add Ink #337

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge for you at Just Add Ink. Our challenge for you is to:

Just Choose Two –

Doily or Die Cut or Designer Designer Paper

This is going to be an easy one to play along with!  I’ve chosen two patterns of designer series papers from Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  I’m in love with these papers!  They will be available from the new Occasions Catalogue in January.  I’ve paired the papers with a stamp set that will also be available next year called Balloon Adventures. This stamp set coordinates with Balloon Pop Up Thinlits.  From these thinlits I’ve used the loopy present topping die and cut two of them to create a doily effect.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #232

Hey Everyone

It’s my turn to host the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  Whenever it’s my turn, I plan the sketch with no thought of what card I want to design.  When it comes time to put a card together, I struggle with designing a card!  I kept the sketch simple (for once) but it still took me forever to finish my card. Here’s my sketch:
