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

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…..
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!!

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.
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.

It’s new Challenge time for Just Add Ink…..Just Add Numbers! And I was really quite keen on this Challenge as soon as I saw it.
Very timely too – because I have someone turning 10 in my household this month…..very exciting times you know!!

Now here’s a funny thing………you won’t see my card up on the Just Add Ink Website this week…..why not?
Because I had such a busy week…..I set about making my entry at the beginning of the week and in fact made 2 x cards that fit the challenge – and I was quite pleased with myself that I had got them done – well within time too.
And then……come Friday and I’m on my way to working, thinking…..”Oh yes, new Just Add Ink Challenge today”……that’s when I realised – I had not photographed the cards or got them ready to post. Oh dear!
Anyway – I decided to put them up here anyway.
So – the Challenge is a Sketch Challenge this week. It was put together by Narelle. I decided to use the Sketch for 2 x Birthday Cards because this week both my Father-in-Law and Mother-in-Law have their Birthdays. So I did a card for each of them.
Join this Challenge at Just Add Ink, we would love to see your take on the sketch.

Now here’s a Challenge, if ever there was one…. Just Add Typography!
Firstly, when I saw this, I did not even know what it was. So I had to go and look it up.
the style and appearance of printed matter.
the art or procedure of arranging type or processing data and printing from it.
Typography is the art and technique of arranging type to make written language readable and appealing.
So this sound like a great Challenge to me.
Here is the card that I put together:
I figured that Birthday themed words were the ones I had the most of so that formed the theme of my card. And thanks to the Stamp-a-ma-jig I got them all on the page.
To see the other examples of great Typography, visit the Design Team at Just Add Ink.
We look forward to you joining our Challenge this week.
