Just Add Ink Challenge # 471

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:

JAI # 471 Chantell

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.

You can join us for this Challenge too, just follow this link to the Just Add Ink Blog.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 456…Inspiration

It’s time for the next Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week we have an Inspiration Challenge for you to play along with.  jai picIt’s pretty and could have worked quite well with last weeks Challenge too – which was Just Add Sympathy.

As you may know, I am away from my craft room at the moment – but I really feel I wanted to play along with this Challenge.   So I have had a go with the limited craft supplies I have here.    And I mean limited…….this is pretty much what I have…..

So no Stamping blocks, only one ink pad and a couple of pens, no punches or dies…..only a little tiny pair of not-very-sharp nail scissors……hahaha, I still wanted to have a go.

So here is my card:

jai 456Don’t look too hard at it, because the cutting out with my dodgy little scissors is not that good…..nor is the stamping.   So all in all I’m quite pleased with how it came out.   What do you think??

This card uses the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, which is featured in the new 2019-2020 Stampin Up Catalogue.  The New Catalogue goes live next month.

The 2nd Just Add Ink Challenge for 2019 is right here…….the idea with this one is to use the Inspiration Picture to inspire what ever you create…….

I decided to make a Water color background using the Brusho Powders…..

Here is the card I made:

You can’t really see in the photo – but the enamel dots that I used are very sparkly….I really love them.

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.

Just Add Ink # 430 – Inspiration Challenge

Image may contain: flower and text

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is an Inspiration Challenge……I put together this pretty floral card and I know who I’m sending it too……

No automatic alt text available.

This card came together easily and I think that was because I liked the pretty colours in this Inspiration pic,  so tried to use them on my card too.  The details that I quite like are the stamped daisy’s on the base card and the pink stencil work in the background.

Please follow this link to Just Add Ink to join in this Challenge with us.  Happy Stamping!
