The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is Just Add…….Nature! suggested by Di.
That means you can use anything found in nature – like Flowers, leaves, birds, animals, sun, stars….
I’m sure it’s going to be a fun Challenge.
Here is the Card that I made:
Join us at Just Add Ink to see what the Design Team have come up with this week to provide you with inspiration…..and then create something to share with us.

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.

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.
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.

Hi everyone – It’s time for another weekly challenge from Just Add Ink. This week we have a sketch challenge and it’s a great starting point for any projects you might work on this week. Here is the sketch.
Here is the card I did:

I find, I make so many girly cards. They are all pretty and flowery. So this week’s Just Add Ink Challenge – Just Add Blokes was welcomed by me.
I put together a couple of Blokes cards – one of which I have already given away so can’t show it to you. Here is the other one:
I used Basic Black, Basic Gray and Whisper White. The stamp set is Clockworks which is a very versatile set.
To see a whole heap of other cards/projects for Blokes visit Just Add Ink.
Have a go at the Challenge and share your Bloke projects with us too.
I also decided to put together (case) a few cards I have seen lately that can be used for Boys/Men too.
The first is the Lego Card (cased from Vicki Hodgman). There are many Lego cards out there but I really liked the layout that Vicki had used. Here is my version.
Believe me…..that’s a whole lot of dots!!
Next up I decided to make and Angry Birds card. There are heaps of these around at the moment too. My sister Nadine made one recently that I really really liked – it’s so cute. Here is my version:
I thought this was so cute. I (excitedly) showed it to Sarah and she said…..”Nah, it’s not as good as Aunty Noo Noo’s”! Ohh lol!
So, while at work I was thinking about it ….. thinking – how can I change that card to make it “MINE” ……. this is what I came up with.
So I folded it a bit differently and used a rubber band to hold it closed.
Then when you remove the rubber band and open it up there is another little Angry Bird flying through the sky on the inside. Ha Cute!!
I actually think my Angry Bird looks more like an Annoyed Bird……but you get the idea.

Hey – we have a great sketch to work with this week at Just Add Ink. It was put together for us by Mae Collins. I really enjoyed putting my card together – main cause I had new stamps and DSP to play with. Here is Mae’s Sketch:
Here is my card:
I’ve used the Nautical Expedition DSP, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and The Open Sea Stamp Set. These are all from the Current Summer Mini Catalogue (that runs until 31st March 2012). All of these products go together so nicely and are great earthly/manly colours.
The Design Team has come up with a wonderful array of Cards using this sketch – you can check them out here. So come on – have a go at the Sketch – and show us what you have made.

Here’s a great Colour Combo for you – given to us by Nikki Spencer.Given that I love pretty much all Blues – I really like this Combo. The two blues – Pool Party and Indigo Island work so well together. Here is my card……..
This is my new Stamp Set – it is called The Open Sea – and is perfect for MAN cards. Also – I should mention where I got this sketch/layout from…….it’s actally from the 2007/2008 Stampin Up Idea Book & Catalogue. I use my Catalogues a lot for inspiration – and even after they have retired as a Catalogue they are still full of fantastic ideas.
