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.

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.

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.
