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.

    Chantell I love how you have changed my card design to be a Centre Step Card, I have yet to try making one of those myself (I think!). I am so glad you found something on my blog to inspire you. Have a lovely weekend ♥

  2. I love the way you’ve drawn inspiration from Mae’s card, but made it your own, Chantell. Really beautiful!

    Well two big WOWs from me Chantell! Love your CASE of Mae, that shadow effect is stunning and I love the ornate details of the embossing. Then last weeks projects – those yellow roses are a knockout!! Gorgeous.

    You’ve created a beautiful CASE of Mae’s card Chantell! I’ve never tried one of those card myself either – might have to give it a try! Thanks for the inspiration.
