JAI # 118 – Just Add Mae!

Yay – it’s time to honor one of our fabulous Design Team Members as Just Add Ink.  This week we are being inspired by Mae Collins. 

Mae’s projects are full of wonderful shapes and colours.  We both share a love for the Stamp Set Just Believe – so I have CASE’d one of her Cards that uses it.   Here is Mae’s card:

I really like the technique that Mae used and the colours too……so they also feature in my Card. 

Here is mine:

I’ve done a Centre Step card – this is the first time I have done one – and really love the effect.  I added a few butterflies and a bit of lace ribbon.  You probably can’t see it – but I spritzed the Butterflies with Shimmer Mist too.

Visit Just Add Ink here to see the other projects inspired by Mae.  And remember to have a go yourself and share it with us. 

Also – you may have noticed that I did not post my JAI Project from last week – I meant to….but I was just busy and tired and felt I needed a little rest…….so did not get round to it.  Never mind. 

The JAI challenge last week was a Colour Challenge – So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  Oh Man! I thought this was gonna be hard – but it actually came together quite nicely.


I made this Card and Candle cover – and I also made a matching Bag.  They were part of a Gift for my friend Charlene who had a birthday recently.  I really liked how they came out.

JAI # 116 – Just Add…..Mothers Day

It’s May – and that means Mother’s Day.  So we at Just Add Ink are celebrating Mum’s by having a Just Add Mothers Day Challenge.  I decided to create a Card and matching Gift for this Challenge.

I managed to get a scented Candle that closely matched my Card stock.  The Colours are Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo, Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla.  This stamp set is a retired one and is called Soft Summer.  It’s a lovely 2 step stamping set.

I love creating gifts and cards that match – if you want to have a go to, this is the perfect challenge for it.  Once you have put your ideas together – go to Just Add Ink and upload your challenge.  While your there check out all the other fabulous projects that we have put together for our Mum’s.
