Just Add Ink #341

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.

Thanks for stopping by.

Just Add Ink #288

Hey Everyone

Friday’s mean a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week I designed a sketch for you.

I think this sketch is very versatile as you will see by the gorgeous & varied creations by the Just Add Ink Design Team. I stayed pretty true to the sketch (which doesn’t happen very often for me). It was only as I was typing this did I realise I created a card with no stamping – yay for me!

Freshly Made Sketches #209

Hey Everyone

Wednesday’s bring a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our sketch hostess this week is the wonderfully talented Jen Brum.  If you haven’t been over to Jen’s blog – you should. She creates such gorgeous cards.

I stayed true to Jen’s sketch, with one addition – I added a raised up Christmas tree.  I’ve played around with my new Stampin’ Up! goodies – Peaceful Pines Stamp Set, Perfect Pines Framelit Dies and Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies.  Here’s my card:
