Wow – Just Add Ink # 28 is up – and I am soooooo looking forward to seeing all the entires because the theme is Just Add A Man Card!
Man Cards are something that I know lots of us struggle with – so that is why I am looking forward to seeing all the creations.
We also teamed it with a Color combo this week too. The colours are:
And here is the card I did.
I used the Medallion Stamp for this.
Because it’s a Man Card – I asked my Husband what he thought……he said – “Yeah – it’s Man enough – it’s got Studs”!
Later – I also made this one.
This is the Medallion and Sincere Salutations.
So – put your Man Card together – and go over to Just Add Ink to enter the challenge.
As I said Yesterday – I have not had much time to play in the Craft
Room this week – but I did have a go at Makeesha’s Challenge. It’s a Sketch Challenge this week. This is the Sketch.
I decided to stick to my Joseph’s Coat Technique which we did in Card Class this week. Here is the Card I did.
I used Good Friend Stamp Set, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron & Chocolate Chip. What do you think?
You can go and check out the other Challenge Entries here.
Gee – what a busy week I have had. I’ve hardly even had time to play in my Craft Room. Sad but True.
I’ve just finished tonight’s Card Class but before I head off to Bed I thought I would quickly post the Cards we did here.
The first one is one I have already posted on this Blog on 18th June – as it was also one I did for a Just Add Ink Colour Challenge.
Here I have used Kiwi Kiss, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White & Rich Razzleberry with Stamps from the Good Friend Stamp Set.
The other Card we did was one I did for a Team Challenge in June also.
This card is done in Night of Navy, Taken with Teal, So Saffron & Rose Red with the Medallion Stamp.
This is such a fabulous Technique. Very effective and a great use of colour. You should give it a go. I’ll show you another one tomorrow.
Today I am showing you another of the Unconvention Projects. This one was presented to us by Caroline Colgan. I really enjoyed doing it – and decided to do it in a class too.
This is the one I did for Un-convention in May.
It’s a lovely project because the Pocket on the front of the Bag holds a little Card & Envelope that you can make to match. I filled this with a few goodies and then gave it to my friend Michelle. Luckily – she is also one of my Card Class Ladies…..cause after I gave it to her I said…..”Um – can I borrow the bag back in a few weeks to show as a class project”!! She laughed.
Last night we did the Class Project – and I am pretty sure the ladies liked them. They all did different colours. I did not get a pic of them all – but a do have pics of two more that I have done.
This one I did for MIL’s Birthday. The decoration design for this I got from one done by my friend Susan Joyce. I loved it…..Thanks Sue.
I put this together in the Class last night.
Sorry my pic’s are not too good…..but you get the idea, aye?
I’d like the say Thank you to Caroline Colgan for such a great project – that I have made several times now – and I know I will make lots more too.
We are Embossing at Just Add Ink this week. There are heaps of Techniques out there that require you to Emboss as part of the process so there are heaps of things you could do with this challenge.
For my card – I embossed with Clear Embossing Powder onto White Card – and then I Brayered some colour over the top. Here it is.
Go and check out the Design Team Projects here. And don’t forget to have a go at the Challenge too…..it’s lots of fun.
Tonight I am doing a Punch Art Class. We are doing a couple of Cards using the new Bird Punch – cause I love it. The first card is actually the one I showed you on my previous post with the flowers on it.
The second card also uses the Bird Punch. I have cased it from one that I got from my Secret Sister. But…..I’m not gonna show it to you right now…sorry. Maybe in a few weeks.
For now – I just wanted to let you know I have updated my Classes Page – so you can check out what classes I have coming up. I’d love for you to come along and join in.
And I will now show you a little card I made the other day…..
And here’s another…..
The Inkspirations Challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge. This is the Sketch:
This is the little card I came up with…
I used the Bird Punch to make these flowers. The colours are Certainly Celery, Basic Gray, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst & Whisper White. I used the Tea Party DSP.
