Just Add Ink #360

Hey Everyone

There’s a new sketch waiting for you at Just Add Ink and this week I’m the sketch designer.  As always when I design a sketch, I’ve got NO clue what card I’m going to create.  In fact I created two because I wasn’t sure which one I liked best…..same sketch, but each so different.

Here’s the sketch I came up with:

The first of my cards is a shaker card.  Stampin’ Up!s Life Me Up is such a versatile stamp set that lends itself to either a feminine card or a masculine card.  Because I’ve used a bit of bling and gold ribbon, I think I’ll give this card to a female. The DSP I’ve used is from Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper. I made sure I stocked up on this before it retires.

Here’s the second card I made.  I used the sketch to make a Mother’s Day card for my mum with some new Stampin’ Up! goodies.  The Daisy Delight Bundle is going to be a favourite for sure. When I first joined Stampin’ Up!, I purchased every coordinating stamp set and punch bundle there was. They really make stamping and cutting so easy. The colours I’ve used are Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist (you’ve probably noticed my love for these colours in my last couple of cards!).  The background behind my stitched circle was created by the smooshing technique and ink splatters from Swirly Bird. I was in the mood on the weekend for mastering this technique and ended up with really inky fingers!

The design team have created the most gorgeous cards this week.  I totally love them all! Head over to Just Add Ink and get ready to be inspired by them.

We would love it if you could play along!

Thanks for stopping by.
