Just Add Ink # 435 Inspiration!

Image may contain: text

Brrrrrr!! Here’s a Wintery pic for you……looks like a Christmas Scene to me. Not that Christmas in Australia or New Zealand looks like that……but you do see so many Wintery Christmas scenes.

I went to the Mall tonight and saw all the Christmas decorations up – it’s such a lovely time to shop.  I’m looking forward to finding some time to have a poke around the shops.

Anyway – here is the card I made for this Inspiration Challenge.

You kinda can’t see it in the pic – but this card is really sparkly – I hit is with the Dazzling Diamonds!

Just Add Ink # 434 – Big Bold Sentiment!

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is to Add a BIG BOLD Sentiment……as you’ll see, I made this card a couple of Months ago now – and it fit’s this Challenge perfectly.

No automatic alt text available.

Adding Silver embossing to the letters really helps them to stand out – I mean, they are big enough anyway  but the embossing gives an extra shine.

In the back ground I coloured some embossing paste and using a stencil added a bit of texture to the back ground.

Join Just Add Ink in this challenge and show us your BIG BOLD sentiment projects.

Just Add Ink # 430 – Inspiration Challenge

Image may contain: flower and text

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge……I put together this pretty floral card and I know who I’m sending it too……

No automatic alt text available.

This card came together easily and I think that was because I liked the pretty colours in this Inspiration pic,  so tried to use them on my card too.  The details that I quite like are the stamped daisy’s on the base card and the pink stencil work in the background.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 429 – Vellum!

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is all about adding Vellum.  Vellum is a great addition to cards and 3D projects.  On my card today, I have die cut some leaves as an embellishment.   My card is a CASE of a card from the current Stampin Up Annual Catalogue 2018-2019…..see page 9.

And below…..see my take on the card.     Die cutting shapes with Vellum is a fun way to add it to your projects.

Looking back – I have used Vellum in my Just Add Ink Challenges for some time.

Below is the card I made in Just Add Ink Challenge # 2!   I used the Vellum to make some flower petals…..

The challenge was to Just Add Hearts – so my idea was to have flower petals look like they were flying off and making Heart shapes.

You can find one of my popular Vellum projects in JAI # 125 – Just Add Winter where I made some Vellum Luminaries.   I also did this in a class Tea Light Class

Follow this link to the Vellum Luminaries – Tutorial

And below are a couple more examples of using Vellum…… Velum flowers and Butterflies.

So, spend some time playing with Vellum this week….and share your projects with us at Just Add Ink

Just Add Ink Challenge # 422 – Choose Two…

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Choose Two.  The things you can choose from this time all have something to do with Embossing.   There are several types of Embossing – and many many ways to use it in our projects – so this Challenge allows you to do that.

I have chosen to use Embossing Paste and Embossing Powder.

I used a new stencil I got a couple of weeks ago – I kinda think it looks Giraffeey.  What do you think?

Heres the link to Just Add Ink – so you can check out many other creations by the Design Team and fellow Crafters.  Have fun embossing!

And it’s so versatile too.  Being an Inspiration Challenge, you can use the pic to inspire you in any way – so the possibilities are endless.   I made 2 cards, using similar ideas.   I used a stencil to create my backgrounds and then embellished on top.  Check out my cards below……..and then, go to Just Add Ink to check out more ideas from the Design Team.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 418 Colour Challenge

Image may contain: text

This morning as I went off to work the sun was just rising.  As it rose up over the horizon and the rays of light beamed out in channels……it was so lovely.  I tried to snap a pic of it on my phone…..but it didn’t look as good as what I was seeing.   

The colours in a sky reminded me of this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge – it’s a colour Challenge suggested by Jo.  The colours are really pretty and girly – although I must admit that the softness of the Seafoam was Challenging for me.  It’s such a lovely colour though.

Anyway – here is the card I put together.

No automatic alt text available.

The idea for this card came from a card I saw in a recent stamping magazine.  I’m not even sure now, which magazine it was now, but the idea stuck in my mind and here’s my take on it.

As I said before, I think this colours are really pretty.  To see some more pretty cards from the Design Team and to join our Challenge, follow this link to Just Add Ink.
