Just Add Ink Challenge # 443 – Just Add Two…

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a fun Choose Two challenge (suggested by Jan). So that means you can ‘Choose Two’ out of the three options Embossing Paste, Colouring or Sequins to feature on your project.
I choose the Embossing Paste and Sequins – although now when I look at it………I have all three on there.  LOL.

I coloured the Embossing Paste with my re-inkers and then mushed them together to get the colours mixing.   The Butterfly comes from the Sale-a-brations Botanical Butterfly DSP

Here’s the link to Just Add Ink – so you can check out all the other Choose Two projects – and share yours with us too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 440 Just Add Something New!

Image may contain: text

Hi ya, Happy 2019 everyone!!   This is going to be a very exciting year, so stay tuned for things to come!!

Welcome also to the first “Just Add Ink” challenge for 2019.    In true Just Add Ink tradition we are starting the year with a Blop Hop – so I hope you are hoping along and enjoying see all the Just Add Something New projects.  You may have just come from Kim’s Blog,

The  “Just Add Something New!” Theme is perfect for this time of year, because not only is it a New Year – but we also have a new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-brations in full swing too.   

Adding “Something New” to your projects may be in the form of a new product, stamps, a technique or even something from your craft stash that you have not used before.

So here is my “Just Add Something New!” project

I have used the Gingham Gala DSP from the Occasions Catalogue and the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set from the Sale-a-bration

The Gingham kinda reminds me of the table cloths that my Grandma used to have on her table.  I really love the soft pretty colours.When you have worked your way through the Blog Hop, join us for this Challenge at Just Add Ink.

Just Add Ink # 306 – Sympathy….

Sadly, we all need Sympathy cards from time to time, and I don’t know about you – but I find them hard to make.   I guess it’s is because when we want to give a sympathy card – it’s a sad occasion.  But I must say – I really appreciated the ones I received last year.

This is the card I made for this Challenge…
I used the Flowering Fields (Sale-a-Bration) stamp set and a double stamping technique.

The Sympathy Cards the Design Team have made are all lovely. Go to Just Add Ink to check them out.  Join us for this Challenge because having a Sympathy card on hand is a very good idea – and joining the Just Add Ink Challenges are fun too.

Just Add Ink # 303…….Just Add E

It’s Friday  (well it’s actually Saturday and I am just late posting this!) and it’s time for the new Just Add Ink challenge.   Challenge # 303 has been suggested by Tina.  “Just Add …E”

So with Easter coming up in about a week or so I created an Easter Card.

I like the bright colours on this card – I noticed them in the Shop window of a Chocolate Factory Shop as I was walking to work one morning during the week…..the little dots were punched and glued on individually.
I’ve been working on some fancy fold cards this week – and this is one of them.
Below are some pics to show you how it opens.

Join us for this fun Just Add E challenge at Just Add Ink.   Check out all the lovely Easter (and other E themed projects) that you can CAS from the Design Team.

JAI # 158 – Sketch Challenge

This week we have another sketch challenge at Just Add Ink – put together by Mae.  This is a great sketch with so many possibilities.  Here is the sketch.JAI158_Sketch[2]

And this is the card that I put together:DSC00107
I used the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper and the colours in it to decide on the rest of the project.  I used Midnight Muse Ink and Card Stock – which is a lovely blue.  And the Oval is done with Summer Starfruit Card stock.  I’m loving the Flower Trim – which is Very Vanilla – but I have coloured it with Midnight Muse Ink.  The Sentiment and Butterfly comes from the Bloomin Marvelous SAB Stamp Set.

JAI # 122 – Just Add Delys Cram

Yay – time for another Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week we are Just Adding Delys Cram……that means we are CASEing her work. 

Delys makes projects that are full of wonderful shapes and beautiful bow’s.  But the main thing that strikes me with Delys’s work is her brilliant use of colourful DSP’s.  So I have decided to CASE one of the cards she has made using scraps of DSP.

This is the card that Delys made:

She has used my fav DSP – which is the Everyday Enchantment DSP and Brads from Sale-a-brations.   So I followed that Theme too.  I also love the shapes on this card – as Delys says – this is a great way to use up those little bits of left over DSP.

Here is my card:

I have used papers from the same pack of DSP – Everyday Enchantment and the Everyday Enchantment Brads and Ribbons too.  Instead of putting my sentiment on a tag I decided to add a Butterfly in Calypso Coral Ink.  The base card is Pool Party – which I think is my new fav colour.

Follow this link to Just Add Ink – there you will find many other projects that also CASE Delys (put together by the Design Team).  And here is the link to Delys Cram – so you can choose one or several of her fabulous projects to case too.  And then return to Just Add Ink to share with us what you have made.
