Just Add Ink #421

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.

Thanks for stopping by.

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.

Just Add Ink #415

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  Friday’s mean a new challenge and this week is inspiration picture challenge.  Take a look at this pretty inspiration pic!

Of course I chose the pink flowers from the pic as inspiration for my card.  I watercoloured the small roses from Graceful Garden and layered them around my sentiment circle.  The sentiment I’ve used is from Love What You Do. I created a tag to layer behind my sentiment.  The paper is from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  I’ve also used a lighter woodgrain paper in the background from the same stack.  I had the two leaf diecuts from Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies already cut and discarded from a previous project, so I decided to add them for extra interest.

Head over to Just Add Ink and take a look at the wonderful inspiration the team have created for you.  We would love it if you could play along with this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Just Add Ink #413

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge for you today at Just Add Ink.  Our challenge this week is a colour challenge. Take a look at the pretty colours we have for you to try:

I’ve combed these colours mostly in the foliage I’ve used and the bird I’ve coloured.  You would probably know by now that Petal Palette is my favourite stamp set, but for this card I’ve chosen the leaves, birds and the flowers stems rather than the roses I normally use.  My flowers are watercoloured with a combination of Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist Inks.  I’ve added Bermuda Bay on my card with some cardstock in the background.  I then added Granny Apple Green in my leaves that were stamped off once on scrap paper and then on my Whisper White cardstock. My bird is watercoloured with Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay Inks.  The sentiment I’ve used on my card is also from Petal Palette. I’ve stamped this in Pacific Point Ink.

Here’s my card:

The team at Just Add Ink have created cards that are gorgeous and all are so very different.  Pop over to Just Add Ink and see for yourself.  We would love it if you could play along.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Everyone

Happy Friday to you all!

We have a new challenge for you to play along with at Just Add Ink.  Love, love, love sketch challenges and this sketch that Jan has created is really up my alley.

As soon as I see I a fantastic sketch, my creative juices kick in and I know exactly what I want to create. I “saw” wedding card when I pictured it in my mind – maybe because of the heart, but as you can see, I chose a leafy image to replace the heart.

I’m thinking I may’ve used Petal Palette on every wedding card I have made recently.  I can’t help it! These flowers have an elegant artwork to them and are made for colouring.  The really are perfect for my CAS wedding cards.  My flower are and leaves are lightly watercoloured with Powder Pink and Pear Pizzazz Inks.

To add a little more interest to my card, I have tilted my sentiment frames.  I then added some Basic Black Bakers Twine because sometimes sequins just aren’t enough embellishments.

You will love the cards the design team have created as much as I do, so pop over to the challenge and take a look.  We would love it if you could play along with us this week.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey Everyone

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

 

I’m a newbie at the Eclipse Technique. In fact this is my first Eclipse card.  For my card I chose to make a wedding card using Perennial Birthday Stamp Set and a congrats die from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.  I’ve given my flowers a light watercolour with Dapper Denim Ink and my leaves are watercoloured with Old Olive Ink.

I love the cards the team at Just Add Ink have created.  Head over to the challenge and take a look.  We would love it if you could play along with us and show us your creations.

Thanks for stopping by.
