Just Add Ink # 430 – Inspiration Challenge

Image may contain: flower and text

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge……I put together this pretty floral card and I know who I’m sending it too……

No automatic alt text available.

This card came together easily and I think that was because I liked the pretty colours in this Inspiration pic,  so tried to use them on my card too.  The details that I quite like are the stamped daisy’s on the base card and the pink stencil work in the background.

Please follow this link to Just Add Ink to join in this Challenge with us.  Happy Stamping!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 429 – Vellum!

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is all about adding Vellum.  Vellum is a great addition to cards and 3D projects.  On my card today, I have die cut some leaves as an embellishment.   My card is a CASE of a card from the current Stampin Up Annual Catalogue 2018-2019…..see page 9.

And below…..see my take on the card.     Die cutting shapes with Vellum is a fun way to add it to your projects.

Looking back – I have used Vellum in my Just Add Ink Challenges for some time.

Below is the card I made in Just Add Ink Challenge # 2!   I used the Vellum to make some flower petals…..

The challenge was to Just Add Hearts – so my idea was to have flower petals look like they were flying off and making Heart shapes.

You can find one of my popular Vellum projects in JAI # 125 – Just Add Winter where I made some Vellum Luminaries.   I also did this in a class Tea Light Class

Follow this link to the Vellum Luminaries – Tutorial

And below are a couple more examples of using Vellum…… Velum flowers and Butterflies.

Just Add Ink # 424…. Just Add Texture!!

Image may contain: text

I love Challenges like this – because you can add texture in so many different ways.   This time I used embossing paste with a stencil.  I added some silver paint to is to colour it.   I also added texture with the ribbon that I frayed, then stuck along the edge.

I often ask my husband what he thinks of some cards….and he always says…..it’s not manly if it has ribbon on it.  so fraying the ribbon is really me trying to make it not look like ribbon!  LOL!

I also really like how the cogs turned out.   I used a bit of foil card to die cut them out.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 422 – Choose Two…

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Choose Two.  The things you can choose from this time all have something to do with Embossing.   There are several types of Embossing – and many many ways to use it in our projects – so this Challenge allows you to do that.

I have chosen to use Embossing Paste and Embossing Powder.

I used a new stencil I got a couple of weeks ago – I kinda think it looks Giraffeey.  What do you think?

Heres the link to Just Add Ink – so you can check out many other creations by the Design Team and fellow Crafters.  Have fun embossing!
