Just Add Ink Challenge # 536 Inspiration

This week at Just Add Ink we have an Inspiration Challenge:

I looked around for a Snowman…….but it’s summer here, so there are no Snowmen around.

And then, I got a surprise card in the post…….. Love getting Happy Mail!! Thank you Nadine.

Hmmm – sorry, not a very good pic…..can’t believe both my pics were taken at the same time, yet the light is so different!

I decided to use the layout of this card for the Challenge. I used the Poinsettia Dies and DSP. Here is my card:

Just Add Ink Challenge # 534 – Color Combo

This is how I feel this week….and it’s because Meeting Season 2020 is done and dusted. So I’m in Happy Celebration mode…….tired but happy!!

Well, not many days left till Christmas now……and what better way to create Christmas cards, than with a Christmas inspired Colour Challenge.

These colours have been suggested by Nikki – they are fun, festive and traditional.

For my card this week I have used the Sweetest Time stamp set and the very pretty Real Red Sheer Ribbon.

To check out more Christmas Cards inspired by these colours go to Just Add Ink. You can also join us for this Challenge by sharing your projects with us.

Just Add Ink # 531 – Inspiration Challenge

I’m playing along with Just Add Ink, where we have an Inspiration Challenge this week.

I used the trees from the Coming Home stamp set and the Flowers For Every Season DSP to create this Christmas card.

I actually had a wonderful weekend stamping. I made over 20 cards in total and loved every minute of it. Here are a couple of others I made while exploring this theme.

We would love you to join us for this Inspiration Challenge – so here is the link to Just Add Ink, where you can see what the Design Team has made as well as share you project with us.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 528 – Choose Two

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Choose Two Challenge. You can choose from Sequins, Ribbon or Metallic Foil.

I realise now that I am looking at my card that I managed to include all three of those things on my card. I was actually going for Metallic Foil and Sequins but then felt like it needed some ribbon.

The back ground paper that I used is the Plush Poinsettia specialty paper. I really love the effect and feel of the paper.

I also made another version with a White back ground.

Head on over to Just Add Ink to participate in this challenge and check out all the wonderful Design Team projects.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 526 – Inspiration Challenge.

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is an Inspiration Challenge. Look at that pic!! The Mushrooms are so vibrant – who would have thought you would find colours like that in Fungas!

This inspired me to make a Christmas Card. The Mushrooms reminded me of bold baubles hanging on a Christmas Tree.

My baubles aren’t quite as vibrant as those in the Inspiration pic and in my photo you can’t quite see the shimmery glitter spray I have on them.

I hope you can join in this Inspiration Challenge. Visit Just Add Ink to join us and see the other projects made by the Design Team.

Just Add Ink # 487…..Sketch Challenge

Here is the last Just Add Ink Challenge for 2019.  It’s a Sketch Challenge and has been suggested by Jackie.

No photo description available.

I thought this Sketch was perfect for a Christmas card.  I cut some Baubles out of red and silver glimmer paper.  They are super sparkly – which I really like.  I used a stripy and dotty foil paper for the background.

No photo description available.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, relax, create and enjoy some fun peaceful time with your families.

This Challenge runs for two weeks and closes on 1 January.  So follow this like to Just Add Ink.  There you can join the Challenge and see what the Design Team made to provide you with inspiration.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 483…..Choose Two!

This Challenge is perfect for Christmas cards – Stars – Spots – Sparkle.
This idea is to add two of these elements to your projects.
I chose Sparkle and Stars.

I added some Wink of Stella to my Reindeer to make it Sparkle.   And then I skattered a few silver stars around. 

These are the Snow Globe Scenes dies.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 439 – Gift Box

Image may contain: text

Can you believe it!!   This is the last Just Add Ink Challenge for 2018!
Just Add a Gift Box is so appropriate for this time of year – and a perfect one for me to participate in because I had a couple of little gifts that I wanted to pack up for some friends.
Here is the first one………..

No automatic alt text available.

I’ve had this tree die for a couple of years now and not really used it much.  For this Gift pouch the size of the die tree worked well.

Below are a couple of the other pouches that I made.

Inside are some little fabric folded shopping bags – which is something we all need to keep in our handbags these days.

These pouches were quick and fun to make and a perfect way to dress up a little gift.

This Just Add A Gift Box challenge runs for TWO WEEKS and closing on January 2nd.   Go to Just Add Ink to enter or check out all the other gift box ideas.

Happy Christmas everyone!

Just Add Ink # 438 – Colour Challenge

The Just Add Ink Colour Challenge this week is perfect for this time of year…….Just the perfect colours for me to create a Christmas Card with……..

No automatic alt text available.

I added Pool Party to my card.   To make the back ground I sponged a bit of Pool Party and then some Lovely Lipstick through a stencil.    Well…………to be honest, it was only meant to be the Pool Party, but I picked up the wrong sponge!!   LOL – oh well, I just adapted it a bit.

Just Add Ink # 435 Inspiration!

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!
