Just Add Ink # 385 Sketch Challenge

Oh my goodness…….where on earth did October go??    Or perhaps you were wondering where I had gone??    Either way, a month has passed…..but I am back now with the new Just Add Ink Challenge.

Challenge # 385 is a Sketch Challenge…….here it is.

No automatic alt text available.

I made a card using the Beautiful You stamp set.  I took my colour combo inspiration from the colours in the Iridescent Sequin Assortment.   I have been wanting to use these for some time – not only are they sparkly but also different sizes and great colours.

Here’s closer look at the sequins…….pretty aye??
This is a great sketch – so go to Just Add Ink and check it out.  The Design Team have some great projects to share with you and you can play along too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 371 – Just Choose Two……

Image may contain: text

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge (suggested by Di) is Just Choose Two – so you can choose two out of Kids, Pets or Patterned Paper and use them in your project.  I went for the pets and patterned paper.

Here is this card I made.

The stamp set I used is called Bella & Friends – it’s a collection of cute dog images.  The DSP is from the Naturally Eclectic DSP pack.   I’ve used the Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide Card stock.

I tell ya…..the Lemon Lime Twist is becoming my new Fav!!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 368 A Twist…..Birthday Stamps for Christmas

 Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week has been suggested by Kelly and challenges us to create a project that uses a “Birthday” set for ‘Christmas” projects.   Being halfway through the year, it’s a great time to start getting you Christmas cards underway……so have a look at your Birthday Stamps and challenge yourself to use them in a different way.

Here are the cards that I made:

I used the Number of Years stamp set for both of these cards.  It’s hard to see in my pic, but the one below has dots of glitter in each of the flowers.  So, once you have created you project with a twist share it with us at Just Add Ink.

Just Add Ink # 367 – Colour Combo

Hey, the new Just Add Ink Challenge is here….it’s a Colour Challenge!

No automatic alt text available.

This challenge was suggested by Patrice – and I think is quite challenging.  For my card – I did not have much in the way of Lemon Lime Twist – but did have some card stock.  So I used a re-inker to colour some Embossing paste and a stencil to create my background.  Then I used the pocket stamp from Pocket Full of Sunshine to create a frame.

I spread out some of the Copper Trim to create my embellishment.

Here is the link to Just Add Ink, so you can check out all the other Design Team cards / projects and also share your cards, layouts or 3D projects with us.

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!!

To find more examples of projects using this Sketch Challenge go to Just Add Ink and have a look at all the creations.  And remember…..have a go at this challenge and share your project with us.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 363 – Anniversary

Earlier this year, my friends Kim and Sean celebrated their 20th Wedding Anniversary – cool aye??  Congratulations !!

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing and wedding

It really made me reflect on how wonderful it was to be celebrating a milestone Anniversary and how the time has flown – it definitely did not feel like 20 years to me.   I thought about all the things that have happened in the time – the good, the bad and the laughs we’d had.

It also made me suggest this challenge.  Just Add Anniversary.

Here is the card I put together:

For this card, I used some golds and silvers together.  I painted the gauze with gold paint and I like the texture that it adds to the card.

Here is a link to Just Add Ink – where you can check out all the Anniversary cards from the Design Team and share you Anniversary creations with us.

 

Kim – I thought, now that I have finally put together an Anniversary card I could send it to you (belated), however, I realise it has a bird on it, which isn’t your thing.   So instead, I dedicate this post and challenge idea to you.  Perhaps you will enjoy looking at all the Anniversary cards in this challenge.

Congratulations to both you and Sean. xx

Just Add Ink # 361 – Choose Two

Hi, the next Just Add Ink Challenge is here.Image may contain: text

The idea this week is to choose Two from the following:  Flowers, Washi Tape, Watercolour  and then use them when making your project.  So there are endless options/ideas here……..

I decided on the Flowers and Watercolour.  Here is the card I made.

Image may contain: drawing

I stamped onto wet water colour paper and then just left the stamped images to bleed and blend.  Some of the images dry clearer than others so you get this kinda dreamy effect.  I finished it off with a bit of ribbon, glitter paper and crystal effects.

To check out what Two elements the rest of the Design Team have chosen and to see how they have put them together go to Just Add Ink.   Remember to share your creation with us too.
