Just Add Ink #350

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge at Just Add Ink for you.  This week is a sketch challenge that has been designed by Chantell.

The beachy background on my card was inspired by this gorgeous card created by the fabulously talented Michelle Zindorf.  I’m not much of a sponger (not a fan of the inky mess I make on my fingers), but I decided to give a scenic background a go.  I thought it worked well with the sketch.  I had the lighthouse from Stampin’ Up!s High Tide already stamped sitting on my desk, so my card came together quite quickly.

Here’s my card:

Hey Everyone

Time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink!  This week our challenge for you is to;

Just Add Ombre

I tried a few different ways of adding Ombre to my card but in the end I added on a little Ombre to the bottom corner of my card.  The three colours I used were Pink Pirouhette, Blushing Bride & Melon Mambo.  I then stamped some flowers from Stampin’ Up!s Penned and Painted in Blushing Bride/Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sky/Pool Party.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Beautiful You.

Hey Everyone

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

Just Add Two – Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies

It’s been ages since I’ve used Picture Perfect.  Funny really, when you know I love a flower stamp – you’d think I’d have used it more than I have.  I’ve stamped two flowers in Blushing Bride and Basic Black.  To add a little something extra to my card I added two little butterflies from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Kindness Matters.  I stamped them in Basic Black and water coloured tips of their wings with Pool Party.

Here’s my card

I’ve taken inspiration from the pool and used Pool Party as the main colour on my card.  I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Penned and Painted and have given my Watercolor Pencils another run.

Hey Everyone

This is our final challenge at Just Add Ink for 2016.  Our challenge for you is to:

Just Add N

I could’ve scrapbooked a page with just my on it, but as I’m not a scrapbooker I’ve gone with a couple of N’s on my card – I’ve used Night of Navy DSP and used N sentiments. I love this vintage Santa from Stampin’ Up!. He’s from a set called Father Christmas.  He and vintage go together, so I have created a vintage Christmas card.

Here’s my card:

Hey Everyone

I am loving the challenge colours for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge.  These colours were suggested by Kim.

When I saw these colours – I instantly thought Christmas.  I had a card mostly made and decided I wasn’t a fan of it, so I ditched it at the time I was supposed to have uploaded it to our FB page and started again.  I’ve gone with a quick and easy, mostly thinlit dies card.  The thinlits I’ve used are Pretty Pines Thinlits and Christmas Greetings Thinlits.  I added a Christmas sentiment (one of my all-time favourites) from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Many Merry Messages and a bit of background stamping from Swirly Bird and I was done!  Oh, I almost forgot – a strip of ribbon and as always, I’ve used the ever faithful sequins.

Just Add Ink #339

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week I designed the sketch and as usual, I stumbled when it came time to sit down and put something together…..  Don’t know why I don’t design a card without the pressure of a sketch and then take the sketch from that! Does that make sense???

I wanted to use Stampin’ Up!s Father Christmas – a set that hadn’t seen ink until this card. Do you ever really want to use a set and then when it comes time, you don’t know how to use it? That was me with this card.  The background trees and sentiment are from a set called Christmas Magic.  Here’s what I came up with:
