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.

    I love how you have made a snowflake from this stamp and how the butterfly just sets it off sitting in the middle of the ‘splash’ of flowers! Love the colours too.

  2. I just LOVE this snowflake – so clever. Marina Mist is a beautiful colour to combine with white for Christmas.

    I love this idea Chantell. So diff yet so appropriate at the same time.
