JAI # 95 – Just Add Christmas – Non Traditional

I can’t believe it is almost December!  The last few months have just flown by.  I think (for me) that is mainly because I have just been so so so busy at work I hardly keep up with what day it is.  Thankfully – the end of November is the end of our busy season and we can start to relax into the Christmas / Silly season.  Wheww!

Given that Christmas is almost upon us – it’s fitting that the Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Christmas one.  We are Challenging you to Create a Christmas project using a Non-Traditional Christmas Stamp.  Ohh I had so many ideas for this challenge…and just as well because I have a similar challenge running with Kim (my friend) and Nadine (my sister) too.   So – for this week – here is my Just Add Ink, Non-traditional Card.

 I’m calling it a Butterfly Snowflake.  I decided to use Marina Mist – cause I love this colour and it’s not a traditional Christmas colour.

This Card was actually CASED from one done by my friend Tracey Wilson – in 2009.  Tracey demonstrated some masking techniques and made the following card.  The Stamp Set is Pocket Silhouettes.

Tracey used Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip for this card.

I look forward to showing you my other Non-Traditional Christmas project soon.  Meanwhile – go to Just Add Ink and check out the other fantastic projects.  Don’t forget to upload your projects so we can see them too.

JAI # 94 – Sketch

The Just Add Ink Sketch challenge this week is a round sketch.   It really made me want to make a card with Flowers and Butterflies on it……..but then again……..I thought I would do something different.  So looking at my stamps I selected a new Stamp set – that I have only used a few times so far.   It’s called Under the Big Top and includes a selection of great little Circus characters.  I also used the Designer Series Papers that match the Stamp set – Big Top Birthday.  This helped me decide on the colours for my project – Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

Rather than making a circular card, I decided to put my circle onto my card.  I embossed the bottom portion of the card with the Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder and added some Linen Thread embellishments up the top.

To see all the fabulous Design Team projects using this sketch – and to enter yourself, visit Just Add Ink here.

JAI # 93 – Colour Combo

Hello…… This is my first post for a while – cause I am still sorting Computer probs….but I just have to get back into doing what I do – creating and posting my paper craft project…..so here we go.

This week at Just Add Ink it is Colour Combo time – and these colours are so so pretty.  I just know I am going to use them again.  Here they are:

Here is the card I made:

It’s hard to see in this Pic, but I have sprayed this with a little bit for Glimmer Paint to give it a bit of sparkle.  The colours are so pretty together.  To see more made with these colours, check out Just Add Ink.
