I made this for a friend who is turning 50 soon.  She loves the colour green so I used a number of different shades of green on my card.  I used a glitter embossing paste to add some detail to the background.Head to Just Add Ink to join this challenge and/or to check out what the Design Team have put together to provide you with inspiration.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 442 – Sketch Challenge

This week there is a Special Birthday happening in our family, so I used the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge as the start for a Special Birthday Card.

For this card, it was important to me to use the Black and White – as I see Black and White as National colours for NZ.  Our Sports Teams wear Black and White, we are from the Land of the Long White Cloud  and so I decided to incorporate Black and White into this card.    Next I decided on Tropical prettiness as this card is for a beautiful young lady.  Happy Birthday Ana!

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 # 365 – Sketch Challenge

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is a sketch.  These are great because there are so many possibilities.  I made 2 cards this week for the Challenge.  Here is the sketch…..No automatic alt text available.

Here is my first card.

I used the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set, which is one of my new ones.  I really like it too.  The sentiment comes from a stamp set called Thoughtful Banners – its a sweet little set of words.  I used some of the silver thread, silver foil card and little pink rhinestones to add a bit of bling.

And the second card I made is a fun Everyday Hero card:

I just love this stamp set too.  Its cheeky and fun!!

Just Add Ink # 349 – Inspiration Challenge

Hi – happy Friday everyone – I have to say that because when you see the Just Add Ink Challenge this week you will realise that you just can’t help but be Happy!!
We have an Inspiration picture for you this week.  This has been chosen by Patrice.
So the idea is to make the main element of your project something that is inspired by the picture.  It could be the colours, Macaroons, Balloons or shapes in the inspiration picture.

No automatic alt text available.

Here is the card I put together:

I made the rainbow background using a paint brush and some ink.  And then I used the Balloon element to complete the card.

So join us for this challenge at Just Add Ink – share your take on this Inspiration Challenge.
