Just Add Ink Challenge # 565 – Color Challenge

Hello everyone!….well there’s only a couple of days left in July and what a stormy, wet and windy July it has been here. The amount of rain we have had, is unheard of. It seems every time I look out the window it’s chucking it down!

It’s time again for another challenge with Just Add Ink! 
This week we have a colour challenge with 2 of the In-colours and Basic Black.

I used the Art Gallery Stamp Set to make a floral card.

The Design Team used the colors in a variety of ways. To see their beautiful projects go to Just Add Ink. Perhaps you might join the Challange too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 555 – Colour Challenge

Since returning from NZ I have had a quiet couple of weeks. It didn’t help that I have had a pretty bad cold…..but I think things just caught up with me after my busy busy couple of weeks. Anyway, at the same time, it has been nice to have some quiet time.

I had a lovely day crafting at the weekend when I made this card for the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge. These colours were suggested by Rachael and are lovely.

I used the Forever Fern Stamp Set, Magenta Madness Ribbon and Just Jade dots

I also made another card with these colours using the Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set..

Here is the link to the Just Add Ink blog, where you can join this colour challenge too. You can also see many other lovely cards featuring this colour combo, that have been made by the Design Team.

Hmmm, think it’s time to plan another quiet crafty weekend!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 545 – Colour Combo

The latest Just Add Ink Challenge is here and it’s a colour challenge…Just Add Shades of Green. There are so many lovely shades of Green and I couldn’t decide which shades to use.

So instead of starting with colour, I decided to look at stamps and layouts. I said to my daughter “What things are Green”? She replied “Frogs, frogs are green” So that’s where I started.

Here is my card.

I used quite a few greens – Granny Apple Green, Old Olive, Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz, Shaded Spruce and Mossy Meadow. This stamp set is called So Hoppy Together (now retired).

Here’s the link to the Just Add Ink Blog – so you can join in this Challenge too.

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 Challenge # 524 – Colour ChallHi enge

Hi ya, hope your week is going well? I’ve had a busy one and am looking forward to the long weekend that is coming. I’m sure I’ll be spending some time in the Craft room.

Today I am sharing the card I made for the new challenge at Just Add Ink. We have a Colour Challenge this week, that has been suggested by Jo.

I used the colours to make a soft pastel Christmas card. I used several different die sets – Tasteful Labels, Sweetest Boarders, Poinsettia Dies and Playful Alphabet. The White dots are All The Trimmings Embellishment’s.

The Design Team have created a range of stunning cards for this Challenge. Go to Just Add Ink to check them out. We’d love you to have a go at this Challenge and share your creations with us.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 514 – Colour Combo

Just Add Ink Challenge # 514 is a Colour Challenge. The colours are cool and fresh.

Here is the card that I made.

I coloured some Watercolour paper so that the colours all blended together. Once the paper had dried, I cut out some leaves. I also used the watercolour paper in the back ground.

I used the Forever Greenery dies for the Leaves and the Poppy Moments dies for the background.

It’s the time of Year when Stampin Up retires some Products to make way for new upcoming products.  One of the Stamp Sets retiring this year is called This Little Piggy.  It’s a cute little set, with fun sentiments and Piggy images.

I used “This Little Piggy” for my Just Add Ink card this week.  We have a colour challenge and the pink – Rococo Rose is perfect for This Little Piggy.

The layout I used is also for another challenge – so I will be sharing this card with the ladies in the 2020 Card Swap group too.

This little piggy looks a little be cheeky to me and makes me smile too.

There are so many things that you can do with these colours.  The Just Add Ink Design Team have come up with quite a variety of cards – follow this link and go check them out.

Just Add Ink # 489 – Colour Combo

Hi there,  well it’s the end of the working week for me and we are heading into a long weekend (due to Australia Day).  That means the possibility of time for crafting……sound good?  I think so!

To inspire you in your crafting this weekend – you can join the Just Add Ink Challenge.  It’s a fun and bright colour Challenge.

No photo description available.

I made 2 cards for this Challenge……..

For the first card I chose the Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Call Me Clover colours.
To be honest, I didn’t really have any Call Me Clover Ink, so I have to substitute it with another colour.  The one I have used is actually Old Olive – although with the water colour technique I have used, it looks less Olive.

For the second card, I chose Bermuda Bay (love this colour), Lovely Lipstick and Daffodil Delight.

I used the same stamp set, ribbon and a frame on both cards.  The stamp set is called Beautiful Friendship.

So head on over to Just Add Ink and check out all the Design Team creations and then share yours with us too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 479 – Colour Combo!

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Colour Challenge.  The colours are soft and cool – I thought they were kind of beachy.  But I used them for a floral card.

I put some silver faceted gems in the centre of the flowers.  I really love how the shine.  What do you think?

Head on over to Just Add Ink and play along with this Challenge too.
