Just Add Ink #474

Hey Everyone

We have a new challenge at Just Add Ink for you.  This week our challenge is a colour challenge. Take a look at the pretty colours we have for you to play along with:

Blackberry Bliss is a colour I haven’t used in ages! This is why I love colour challenges, they make me try different combinations that I wouldn’t normally put together.

I also tried my hand with one of my Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and some Shimmery White Embossing Paste.  I created the background of my card using these products.  Once I set it with my Heat Tool, I added my layers of:

  • Blackberry Bliss stamped frame from Very Versailles
  • Fussy cut Mossy Meadow leaves from Very Versailles
  • Fussy cut Blackberry Bliss and Rococo Rose flowers from First Frost
  • Black Memento sentiment from Very Versailles

And my card was done!

I am loving every one of the cards the design team at Just Add Ink have created.  Pop over to the challenge and check them out.  We’d love it if you could play along with us

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Just Add Ink #354

Hey Everyone

We have a gorgeous inspiration picture challenge at Just Add Ink for you this week:

I thought “vintage” as soon as I saw this photo and dragged out an old favourite retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Bloom with Hope.  I watercoloured the flowers with Blackberry Bliss and a touch of Hello Honey.  The leaves are coloured with Pear Pizzazz and Always Artichoke.  To add woodgrain to my circle I stamped Hardwood in Crumb Cake onto some Crumb Cake cardstock.  For the background, I applied my Crumb Cake Ink pad directly to my mat and spritzed it with water. I then put my cardstock directly onto it and heated it with my heat tool to dry it off.

Here’s my card:

Freshly Made Sketches #226

Hey Everyone

My very creative friend Rita Wright is this weeks sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches.  Her sketch is fabulous and I know it’s going to be a popular one. I can’t wait to see what you create with it.

My addiction of watercolouring continues….. I found a retired Stampin’ Up! set to colour – it’s called Indescribable Gift.  I coloured it with Rose Red, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.  The DSP I’ve used is from Love Blossoms Designer Series Stack.  Here’s my card:

Colour Throwdown Challenge #153

Hey Everyone

I came across Colour Throwdown Challenge a few weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to enter until this week.  When I first saw these colours they threw me a bit, especially as we don’t have Pool Party in Australia yet, so I’ve substituted Pool Party with an old favourite – Baja Breeze. Not sure if you can tell by the photo but I daubed around every piece of card with Crumb Cake.  Once I started daubing, I couldn’t stop. My poor old dauber was worn out by the end of it!

Here’s what I came up with:

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Crumb Cake DSP, Old Olive, Baja Breeze DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Stamp Sets: French Foliage
Other Products: Button, Twine, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon (retired), Daubers

See ya
