Just Add Ink # 610 – Inspiration Challenge

Just Add Ink have an Inspiration Challenge this week. It features black and white pictures with colourful balloons.

Here is the card I made:

I used a stencil to make an interesting Black and White background. I used the “Hey Girlfriend” stamp set (retired) to add a pop of colour.

Just Add Ink # 608 – Colour Combo

Hi ya,

Just Add Ink Challenge time again and this week we have a colour challenge.

The colours are bold and vibrant and quite autumny. I decided to use the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set to make my card with.

Last weekend I went to a Team stamping afternoon. We did a Shoe box swap. That means we all designed a card and then provide the materials & supplies for 10 others to make it your card.

We all moved around the room to different places, until we made 10 different cards while 10 people make the card the you design.

It was a really lovely afternoon and I came home with some great cards.

Here are some of the cards we made (not all mine though).

Just Add Ink # 607 – Choose Two!!

Hi ya,

I decided to play along with the Just Add Ink Challenge this week. I put a fun card together that I am going to send to one of my Friends.

To make this card – I choose some bold colours – Night of Navy, Mango Melody, Real Red and Crumb Cake. I then decided on the layout.

I used a stamp that I have had in my stash for a long long time. It’s perfect for this Challenge because it features both the Coffee Cup and Tea Cup, the Beans and the little Sugar cubes…..cute aye?

I am going to send this card to a friend of mine – she drinks tea and I drink coffee and we often get together to download the week we have both had.

Bron’s 60th Birthday Blog Hop #3 – Inky Blues

Happy Friday everyone,

It’s time for Bron’s 3rd Birthday Blog Hop. Bron’s favourite colour is Blue. So the theme for this months Blog Hop is INKY BLUES.

Blue just happens to be my favourite colour too. I really like all shades of blue – dark, light, bright….doesn’t matter, I like em! So this was the perfect theme for me.

The card I made started with a base of Pacific Point. I stamped the flowers from Bottled Happiness with Pacific Point and Night of Navy Ink.

Last weekend, it was my Birthday and I received some lovely hand made cards.

My sister, Nadine gave me a great fancy fold card – that I just had to CASE. So I continued the Blue Happiness and put together another card.

Here is the card I got from Nadine – Haha, just realised it’s Blue too! Pretty!!

So here’s my take on this Fancy Fold. I adjusted the fold and dimensions slightly.

There is very little stamping on this card (only the Sentiment). I have used the Hues of Happiness DSP and lots of fussy cutting.

I can’t wait to make my way through the Inky Blues Blog Hop to see what the rest of the group have made. The next stop on Bron’s Birthday Blog Hop is Jan Clothier. Let’s go and see what Jan has created…….

Here are more of the handmade cards I received.

Just Add Ink # 606 – Sketch Challenge.

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

I decided to flip the Sketch to make my card and used the Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set with a selection of colours to create a multi-coloured panel. I then cut the panel to match the sketch.

For the embellishments and sentiment I used the Art Gallery Stamp Set, Sunflowers Dies and a little bit of White Bakers Twine.

The colours I used are Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody.
