Just Add Ink #429

Hey Everyone

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

As soon as I saw that the challenge was to Just Add Vellum, I knew I wanted to create a wedding card with an embossed vellum background.  I randomly stamped my favourite flower stamp from Petal Palette in Versamark onto the vellum and then heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

I then stamped the same image in Memento Black Ink.  I took my watercolour pen and some Smoky Slate Ink and lightly coloured the flowers and leaves.

Initially I adhered the sentiment circle directly to my card, but then decided a Stampin’ Up! Pearlized Doily would make it stand out a bit more.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Petal Palette also.

 

The team at Just Add Ink have created awesome cards that will no doubt inspire you for this challenge.  Head over to Just Add Ink and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Hey Everyone

Welcome to another challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week our challenge is for you to:

I was probably a little stumped when it came to creating a card with a K for about an hour…..in the end I’ve gone with a Christmas card using Kris Kringle – in fact that’s two K’s on there.

The stamp set I’ve used is a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Father Christmas Stamp Set. I’ve used a combination of Blends and Markers to colour my Kris Kringle. I then added layers with DSP from 6″ x 6″ Neutrals DSP, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Gray Cardstocks.

 

The team from Just Add Ink have created gorgeous cards to inspire you.  Head over to Just Add Ink and take a look.  We would love it if you could play along with your K project.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Everyone

Welcome to another Friday and a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This weeks challenge is an inspiration picture challenge. Take a look at all the gorgeous colours in this photo!

As you can imagine, I fell in love with this challenge and found it right up my alley with all of those pretty flowers.  I’ve used the flower image and sentiment from Stampin’ Up!s Blended Seasons for my card.  I stamped the flower image twice and went to town on colouring them.  I fussy cut the flowers and leaves out and used the ones I felt worked best around my sentiment.   My watercoloured flowers and leaves were created with my Watercolor Pencils.  I find the pencils so easy to work with.

The designer series paper I’ve added to my card is from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  I also added a strip of lighter DSP, also from this stack, and a strip of Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon under my sentiment.

The team at Just Add Ink have all created gorgeous cards.  Pop over to the challenge and see how amazing their cards are.

Thanks for stopping by.

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.

Hey Everyone

Thank goodness it’s Friday! I get a whole weekend of craft room time – as soon as I get some cleaning done, that is…

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  We have a sketch for you to try this week and the sketch designer is me. I hope you like it and get a chance to play along!

By now you probably know I love all things floral.  I’ve even been asked if I’m a florist…. I wish I spent the time arranging flowers in a vase as I do when I create my cards.  My flowers are usually just shoved in a vase with no precision at all!

The Stampin’ Up! stamp set I’ve used on my card is Petal Palette.  The flowers are stamped in Black Memento Ink and coloured with my Rich Razzleberry Watercolor Pencil.  The leaves joined to the flowers are coloured with my Old Olive Waterolor Pencil and the large leaves are stamped in Old Olive Ink and fussy cut out.

For the background I used a mix of stamps from Timeless Textures.  These stamps are stamped in Early Espresso Ink. The sentiment I’ve used is from Dragonfly Dreams and is also stamped in Early Espresso Ink.

The woodgrain designer series paper I’ve used in the background is from Wood Textures Designer Series Stack. I then scrunched up some Burlap Ribbon and layered it under the sentiment.

The design team at Just Add Ink have created gorgeous cards to inspire you. Head over to Just Add Ink and take a look.

Just Add Ink #419 – Just Add A Twist

Hey Everyone

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

So many ideas came to mind when I saw this challenge but in the end I decided the twist I would use on my card was to use a non Christmas stamp set for a Christmas card.  The Stampin’ Up! stamp set I went with was Jar Of Love. I love the photos I’ve seen of decorated Christmas mason jars, so I tried to replicate one.  I’ve created a shaker with the larger jar and added some leaves and pine cone using my Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.  I added some Linen Thread to to the top of the jar and tied a bow.  I then added some ink splatters in Crumb Cake from Swirly Bird in the background.

The team at Just Add Ink have created awesome inspiration for you, so head over to the challenge at take a look.  We would love it if you could play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.

Just Add Ink #417

Hey Everyone

For two nights last week I tried to create a card for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge – I failed, until now.  The challenge at Just Add ink for you is to:

I tried two different types of tree cards and even gave the images I’ve used on my card below a try and for some reason a card using something with a T wasn’t happening.  I was determined to create a card and tonight I finally finished off a card.

The theme I’ve chosen is a teen card.  The cool images I’ve used below are from a 2018 Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Epic Celebrations – perfect for a teen card.  I’ve added lots of layers and background stamping to fill up my card – no CAS card here….

There’s still time to play along with our challenge at Just Add Ink.  Pop over to the challenge and see the fabulous inspiration the design team have created.

Thanks for stopping by.
