Just Add Ink #114

Hey Everyone

Our challenge this week at Just Add Ink is to Just Add…. Jodene Tripp! After searching the many beautiful cards on Jodene’s blog I decided on this card (click here to check out her original post) .

I decided to use neutral colours that Jodene has also used.  For the panel I have pulled out my new framelits dies and cut two of the same size – one in Early Espresso and one in Very Vanilla.  I then distressed the Very Vanilla so that it was worn down around the edges so you could see the Early Espresso edge underneath.  I did this because I don’t like a wide mat under the Very Vanilla.

I hope you’ll check out Jodene’s blog and join us at this weeks Just Add Ink challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Just Add Ink #108

Hey Everyone

The colour challenge given to us this week at Just Add Ink were colours that I would never have used together before.  In fact, I’m not even sure if I’ve used Island Indigo before this challenge.

Here’s the colour palette we were given:

I dragged out Nature Walk for my card today as I was inspired my fellow design team member Christine who had used the bird from this set for her card.  I did a bit of light background stamping with the words from French Foliage and the rain splats that I use on almost every card.  I added an antique brad to my card to anchor the bird cage as it felt like it was floating in space without it.  I’ve seen the brad used like this on a lot of cards on the internet but I can’t remember where I saw it first.

Thanks for stopping by.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Pool Party DSP, Indigo Island
Ink: Indigo Island, Pool Party
Stamp Sets: Nature Walk, Occasional Quotes (retired), French Foliage
Other Products: Antique Brads, Linen Thread, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Button

Mojo Monday Challenge #226

Happy Friday evening everyone

Alright, so I’m extremely excited about something and to find out what it is, you’ll have to come back tomorrow so you can share in my joy (I think you ladies will be more excited for me than the boys in family!)

My card tonight is for this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  The challenge is create either a round or a square card – I went with square coz it’s easier than finding a circle die or finding an envelope to fit it in!
