Just Add Ink # 585 – Christmas Gift Packaging!

This week I have been putting together a few little Christmas gifts which worked well with the Just Add Ink Challenge – Just Add Christmas Gift Packaging.

It’s the last JAI Challenge for 2021. The Challenge runs for 2 weeks…..and then the JAI girls will have a short Christmas break.

I used a selection of DSP and Vellum. The DSP is from a couple of different packs (now retired). To decorate the boxes, I used the Poinsettia Petals Stamp set and Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon.

So – here is the link to Just Add Ink, so you can check out more Christmas packaging ideas from the Design Team. You can also share your projects there too.

Just Add Ink # 583 – Sketch Challenge!

Hi Everyone, I hope you have had a great week? I have spent some of the week making a few Christmas cards. It’s always fun to go through your crafting stash to see what Christmas stamps and craft supplies you have….and then put together several different card designs. I don’t know about you – but I tend to get through quite a bit of Red and Green cardstock at this time of year!

This week the Just Add Ink Challenge is a Sketch Challenge.

I flipped the sketch over and made a Snowy Christmas Santa scene. In this case, I actually raided my friend Sandie’s stash of Christmas dies (trees and Santa Sleigh).

For the background a inked up a dotty embossing folder. The ink on the embossing folder transferred to the cardstock when I ran it through the embossing machine.

I put a bit of “Wink of Stella” onto the trees, which you can’t really see in the photo…..so here is another pic below that shows the glitter. I am holding it up in the sun shine.

I realised as I was writting this post, that I made a wintery snow scene – even though the weather here is quite the opposite. This week our weather has heated up quite a bit – we have even had a couple of really hot days (like 40 degrees).

To play along with this Challenge – go to Just Add Ink and share your project with us.
