Just Add Ink # 592 – Choose Two

This week I have been playing with a mix of old (retired) and new products. Well actually….if I was being truthful I’d have to say I have actually been crocheting…..with a little bit of paper craft on the side.

For the Just Add Ink Challenge this week I created a garden scene using the new Home and Garden Dies and stamps together with the retired Sheltering Tree Stamp set.

The Challenge was a Choose Two Challenge – the categories being, Texture, Patterned Paper and Layers.

I chose Layers and Texture.

I added texture to the background with an embossing folder. It is quite hard to see in the pic but I have embossed Clouds there.

To finish it all off I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies – that are so cute!!
I thought they were too nice to use…….haha but they were perfect for this card.

Just Add Ink # 590 – Inspiration Challenge

Hi everyone, Happy Friday! It’s time for the new challenge at Just Add Ink and this week Nikki has suggested an Inspiration pic for us all to use. You can use the pic to inspire your projects in any way – be it the shapes, background, colours or cactus.

I didn’t have much in the way of Cactus’s in my stamp collection, so focused on the flowers and green-ness. I had a bit of a play with the Gold foil – which is always great fun.

Here is the link to the Just Add Ink blog – so you can go and check out all the crafty goodness there – and join in on our Challenge too.

While you are here though, I thought I’d share something else I made last week……it’s so cute!! Ever seen a Yellow Frog?

I think he will have a little friend soon……. just have to decide what colour!
