JAI # 111 – Just Add Easter

Wow – I can’t believe it’s nearly April!  That’s a quarter of the year gone already! 
And that means it’s also nearly Easter…… There are thousands of Chocolate Eggs, Bunnies and Easter treats in the shops and I have seen heaps of cute and cuddly ones too.  Personally – I love toasted Hot Cross Buns dripping in melted Butter……yummy.   Anyway – I think I’m getting a bit off track here……hee hee!!

If you haven’t guessed yet – this week it’s Just Add Easter!  
I put together a little Easter Basket.  It is actually based on a Template I got from AR Creations………although I have adjusted it a bit to make the bottom of it larger.
 I made this out of Wisteria Wonder – which to me is a beautiful Easter Colour.  I stamped it with the Inspired by Nature stamps and made some bright flowers with the Boho Blossoms Punch and some Butterflies with Beautiful Wings.

I also used the Fancy Flower Punch to make a large flower for the top of the box.
This is a great Challenge to encourage you to have a go at making an off the page Easter Basket or box.  Visit Just Add Ink to check out what the Design Team have made.  Happy Easter Everyone.

Just Add Ink # 110 – Sketch

Hey – we have a great sketch to work with this week at Just Add Ink.  It was put together for us by Mae Collins.  I really enjoyed putting my card together – main cause I had new stamps and DSP to play with.   Here is Mae’s Sketch:

 Here is my card:

I’ve used the Nautical Expedition DSP, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and The Open Sea Stamp Set.  These are all from the Current Summer Mini Catalogue (that runs until 31st March 2012).  All of these products go together so nicely and are great earthly/manly colours.

The Design Team has come up with a wonderful array of Cards using this sketch – you can check them out here.  So come on – have a go at the Sketch – and show us what you have made.

Just Add Ink # 109 – Just Add Beach

Well Summer is coming to an end…..well so they say – although from the Temperatures and amount of Sun shine in Perth lately – I’m not so sure.  Summer is perfect beachy weather….and this week it’s a Just Add Beach Challenge.

When I looked in my cupboard I found a few beachy supplies.  I made a Sandcastle out of paper and used my Eyelet Boarder punch to make some tiny confetti to use as sand.  
 The stamps are from a variety of places – but all perfect images for this card.

JAI # 108 – Colour Combo

Here’s a great Colour Combo for you – given to us by Nikki Spencer.Given that I love pretty much all Blues – I really like this Combo.  The two blues – Pool Party and Indigo Island work so well together.  Here is my card……..

This is my new Stamp Set – it is called The Open Sea – and is perfect for MAN cards.   Also – I should mention where I got this sketch/layout from…….it’s actally from the 2007/2008 Stampin Up Idea Book & Catalogue.  I use my Catalogues a lot for inspiration – and even after they have retired as a Catalogue they are still full of fantastic ideas.
