Just Add Ink Challenge # 373 Just Add Stencils!!

Hi, here’s the next Just Add Ink challenge!   Karren suggested we use Stencils for Challenge # 373.

Image may contain: text
There are so many different Stencil designs to choose from and there are so many different ways to use them too.  I use them quite a bit – love them actually.  You can sponge them with ink (or use a dauber), smear them with embossing paste or glitter or spritz paint over them.

For my stencil card, I decided to make a background using a Stencil that has bold flowers and leaves.

I added some vellum, cord and the new Happy Birthday die cut sentiment to finish it off.

So go to Just Add Ink and check out all the other Stencil ideas and then share yours with us at Just Add Ink too.

Just Add Ink # 367 – Colour Combo

Hey, the new Just Add Ink Challenge is here….it’s a Colour Challenge!

No automatic alt text available.

This challenge was suggested by Patrice – and I think is quite challenging.  For my card – I did not have much in the way of Lemon Lime Twist – but did have some card stock.  So I used a re-inker to colour some Embossing paste and a stencil to create my background.  Then I used the pocket stamp from Pocket Full of Sunshine to create a frame.

I spread out some of the Copper Trim to create my embellishment.

Here is the link to Just Add Ink, so you can check out all the other Design Team cards / projects and also share your cards, layouts or 3D projects with us.

JAI # 346 Just Choose Two…….Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week allows us to combine a couple of things for our projects.  The idea is to Choose Two!   Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies.  Here is the card I put together:

My idea was to try to use the pages from a colouring book in some way – so I die cut some Butterflies (and left them uncoloured).  I used a floral DSP to add some colour too.

So go to Just Add Ink and check out all the great projects that also Just Add Two (Hearts, Flowers or Butterflies).   And remember to share your project with us.

Just Add Ink #340…Just Add a Gift Tag

The new Just Add Ink Challenge is here…..Just Add…..Gift Tags, is Challenge # 340.
Although there are not many weeks left of 2016, this is such a fabulous time of year to get to your craft table or room and create.  And this weeks Challenge is perfect for creating …. because Just Add Gift Tags allows you to create small unique pieces of art with loads of Bling and Glitter and Ribbon and…..you name it!
I added my  Gift Tag to a card.  Here it is:
 I used Gold Foil Card to make the Ornament – and all I can say about that is…..it’s really really hard to photograph!!  But the card was quick and easy to put together and would work just as well as a tag only.
So – go to Just Add Ink to get some further ideas – you will see by the gift tags the design team have created the ideas are endless.   They have made some beauties.  Have fun with this Challenge and remember to share your projects with us.
