Just Add Ink #529

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week our challenge is a colour challenge. Take a look at the fabulous colours we have for you to play along with:

I’m loving this colour combo. It’s bright and fun and I thought these colours would work well for a Christmas gift or even a thank you gift.

I’ve decorated a Mini Coffee Cup with a combination of Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight Cardstock. I used the Warm Wrap Dies to decorate the outside of the cup and added some twine from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack. I added a Whisper White Cardstock leaf die cut that I cut with my Forever Flourishing Dies. The sentiment circle that I’ve added to my cup has been stamped with a sentiment from the Warm Hugs Stamp Set. I added a pink star to the centre of the circle that was cut with a die from the Warm Wrap Dies. The sentiment is adhered to Silver Foil and Misty Moonlight circle die cuts.

I added some chocolates to a Mosaic Gusseted Cellophane Bag that has been tied with the gorgeous Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. This ribbon fancies up any project and I also added some twine for a bit of colour.

The team at Just Add Ink have created wonderful projects that I know you will love. Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #238

Hey Everyone

It’s Wednesday, so that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Kim is our talented sketch designer this week.  I fell in love with this sketch as soon as I saw it.  Kim, you have a winner here!

Lots of details here but I still managed to keep it clean.  I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Garden in Bloom and the splatters in the background are from Timeless Textures.  Here’s my card:

Dynamic Duos #5 & Deconstructed Sketch #54

Hey Everyone

So everyone I know is at our Stampin’ Up! Convention this weekend.  I tried to ignore it because I’m spewy I couldn’t make it.  This didn’t work so I searched everyone’s blogs and stalked facebook just so I could get snippets of information of what’s been happening.  I decided this made me sadder I couldn’t attend, so I headed to my craft room to enter challenges instead – this has cheered me up!

Anyway enough about me, over at the Dynamic Duos their theme this week is Bold and Sassy.

I’ve probably never used these colours together ever, so when I started my card I figured I’d go safe with a feminine florally card – that didn’t work. So I browsed a few challenges and found this weeks Deconstructed Sketch.

As soon as I saw this sketch I changed my mind from a feminine card to a masculine card and because the sketch has so much going on, it was perfect for a man card.  I struggle with man cards purely because I can’t tizz them up with bows and bling.  This sketch was able to give me the “fullness” I like in a card

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
