The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Choose Two – Pastels, Banner or Baby!
I pulled out a favourite Stamp Set for this card. It’s called Beautiful Moments (although now retired). The colours I used are Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue and Petal Pink – they are all from the Subtles Collection.

Just Add Ink have an Inspiration Challenge running this week. It’s pretty and has loads of different images and ideas that can be used in your projects this week.
When I looked at the pictures, the colours and heart shapes really grabbed me. I went straight to my stash of Fresh Freesia card stock. It’s such a pretty colour…..I realised that I must like the colour because I only had one sheet left!!
I used the flowers from the Beautifully Happy Stamp set. It is a lovely 2 step stamping set – it makes colouring the flowers (by stamping them) super fast and easy.
I finished the card off with an embossed background and Fresh Freesia ribbon.
You can join this Challenge at Just Add Ink and also see other projects made by the Design Team.
It’s time for the first 2023 Just Add Ink Challenge. As usual, we are kicking the year off with a Blog Hop. The theme is Just Add Your Favourite!!
Your favourite thing may be a colour, a favourite crafting tool, paper, stamp set or perhaps you have a favourite layout or fancy fold. Or perhaps you have a favourite thing that is not necessarily craft related?
For me, I admit it……I’m a Bag Lady!! I love Bags! All sorts of Bags. Plastic, handbags, totes, back packs….you name it. Love em!
So for my project, I decided to make a bag. Also, my favourite colour is Blue…..so I made a Blue bag.
The Blog Hop also incorporates the Just Add Ink Challenge for this week. Follow the link to Just Add Ink to share your “Favourite” project with us.
The Blog Hop is set up in a loop so it doesn’t matter where you start. All you need to do, to follow along, is click the “Next” Button at the end of each post and you will be taken to the next stop.
Make sure you hop around to see each of the Design Team’s projects. Next on the hop is the wonderful Kim Badelt. I’m sure Kim will inspire you with her “Favourite” project!
For me, Stampin Up has always been about Connection! Stampin Up has helped me to meet new people, connect with my community and make some wonderful friends. And this weeks Challenge is another story of Connecting with Stampin up.
The Challenge this week is Just Add Anything but a card!
To explain the connection further…..a couple of weeks ago I attended the Stampin Up On Stage local event here in Perth. Had a lovely day and came home with some great new things, Stamp Sets, ideas, new friends made (connections) and a lovely new little Stampin Up bag.
Then the following weekend I had my work “End of Year Function”. I had a new Blouse/Top to wear….needed a handbag……Oh I know – the Stampin Up one is the perfect colour! So off I went for a night out.
When I got there – I started chatting to a lady from our Perth office (that I had not met before). Having a great time….and then I noticed she was also wearing a new Stampin Up bag! Now normally, if you turned up somewhere and found you were wearing the same gear as someone else, you’d cut and run – right! But not this time!
I said to her……I know what you did last weekend! She’s like……Pardon???
So I flashed my bag!! CONNECTION!!
That was it – a new friend!
A short time later, my new Stampin Up Friend / Work colleague pulled a cute little Wine Glass Charm out of her bag and gave it to me. Loved it! So fun – I had to have a go at making some Charms too.
The Wine Glass Charms worked perfectly for this Challenge. I made a few of them and then created a box for them to go in.
Such a fun project to make – will definitely be making more.
