Just Add Ink Challenge # 445 – Embossing.

Image may contain: text

Here’s a fun challenge – Just Add Embossing.   There are a few types of embossing you could add to your projects this week…….Dry embossing (using a Embossing Folder or Embossing by hand), Heat Embossing – so inking, sprinkling with powder and then heating is and Embossing paste (stenciled maybe).

I used Heat Embossing and Embossing Paste on my card.

 

 

I coloured the Embossing paste with a bit of Re-inker.  Then I used the brick stencil with the Embossing paste t make the bottom panel.

 

Next I Heat embossed the tools.  I actually used both silver and black embossing powder to get the two-tone tools.

I like how the tools look so shiny.

So join us for this Challenge – show us how you like to use Embossing on your projects.

Just Add Ink # 434 – Big Bold Sentiment!

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is to Add a BIG BOLD Sentiment……as you’ll see, I made this card a couple of Months ago now – and it fit’s this Challenge perfectly.

No automatic alt text available.

Adding Silver embossing to the letters really helps them to stand out – I mean, they are big enough anyway  but the embossing gives an extra shine.

In the back ground I coloured some embossing paste and using a stencil added a bit of texture to the back ground.

Join Just Add Ink in this challenge and show us your BIG BOLD sentiment projects.

Just Add Ink # 424…. Just Add Texture!!

Image may contain: text

I love Challenges like this – because you can add texture in so many different ways.   This time I used embossing paste with a stencil.  I added some silver paint to is to colour it.   I also added texture with the ribbon that I frayed, then stuck along the edge.

I often ask my husband what he thinks of some cards….and he always says…..it’s not manly if it has ribbon on it.  so fraying the ribbon is really me trying to make it not look like ribbon!  LOL!

I also really like how the cogs turned out.   I used a bit of foil card to die cut them out.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 276 – Just Add Cards for Males

Sometimes, producing a ‘Man Card’ can be hard to do.  I often ask my husband his opinion and if there is any hint of glitter or ribbon – he deems it “just tooooo girly”!

So this week at Just Add Ink we are sharing our Man Card ideas, for the Just Add Cards for Males Challenge.

Here is the card I put together for this challenge:

As you can see – there is no glitter, flowers or ribbon……so I think it fits!

Head on over to Just Add Ink for more Cards for Males – the Design Team have some great cards to share.  Join us for the Challenge and share your projects with us.

Just Add Ink # 230 – Just Add Dad!

Hi everyone!…it time for the next Just Add Ink Challenge.  It’s a very special one this week.   Just Add Dad!

This challenge is celebrating Dad’s, because this weekend, it’s Fathers Day in Australia and New Zealand,    So it’s a great time to create a special card or project especially for Dad.
Here is my card:

I’ve used a couple of the new In-colours, Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon.   I’m loving that stitched satin ribbon!
I don’t know if any of you joined us at Just Add Ink for last weeks challenge?  It was an Inspiration Challenge – using  wonderful, colourful, rainbow pictures.  There were heaps of amazing projects that were shared with us…..I really enjoyed looking at them and think I will go back for more looks and inspiration.
The reason I mentioned it, is because the card I have done this week started with a technique shared in last weeks challenge.  Leah Weir shared a beautiful card with a great background technique – and I just had to give it a go.
This was my first attempt.  It’s fun, easy and very effective,  so you should try it too.
Meanwhile…….Join us for Just Add Dad’s – at Just Add Ink.  
We did Fathers Day a bit early.  First we met Ana and Jeremy for lunch – which was very nice.  Then afterwards Sarah and Neil went GoKarting.  Both loved it – and they have been back again this week for another go after school.
