Well this weeks been a bit funny here…..at the beginning of the week, we had a very warm 38O and by the end of the week we were down to a freezing 17O! From one extreme to the other, all in the space of a few days. Luckerly I have had the Just Add Ink Inspiration Challenge to work on so have been able to hibernate (in my craft room) from the heat and cold.
I picked some of the colours out of the Inspiration picture and made a Thank you card.
Perhaps you might use the Inspiration Photo in your craft projects this week too. Join us for this Challenge at Just Add Ink
I’ve been playing with the Bird Ballard DSP this week. I used it for the Just Add Ink Challenge this week. We have a Sketch Challenge.
I turned the Sketch on it’s side for this pretty Birthday card:
I also made this card – with a similar layout, using the Bird Ballard DSP again. Such pretty papersFollow the link to the Just Add Ink blog, to join us in this Challenge and to check out the Design Team cards using this Sketch.
At Just Add Ink this week we a running an “Inspiration” challenge. It was suggested by Rachael. The colours in the pic are lovely and I think it’s also kinda a Wintery pic too. Here is the card I made for this Challenge:
I used a stencil and some Embossing paste in the background. Then I repeat stamped the sentiment in different colours – I think its quite effective.
When I arrived in Rotterdam in March, it was the end of Winter and there were no leaves on the trees. During the following months, the trees and flowers bloomed. It was so lovely to see all the bright leaves.
One of my adventures was going to see the Tulip fields. I hired a bike and spent the day discovering the Haarlem area. It was a fabulous day – despite my sore bottom after about 5-6 hours on the bike.
Now I am back in Australia, and most of the leaves have gone from the trees. But I noticed there are a few leaves that are clinging to their trees and they are many different colour’s. So my card this week is based on Autumn leaves.
Also – can you see the leaves in the background of my photo? I actually took this pic at the Train Station (where I park my car on week days). There are piles and piles of leaves around – so I decided they would make a good background for this card.
For this card I used stamps from two Stamp sets: Floral Essence and Rooted in Nature. The DSP is Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP
