Hi there, here is the next Just Add Ink Challenge – it’s an Inspiration challenge and has been suggested by Kelly. This summery photo can be used to provide inspiration for your project in any way that you like…… – the colours, layout, images or the patterns you see – so there are loads of ways it can be used.
Here is the card I made……
I used a Water colour and salt technique to make the colourful circle element. It was loads of fun to see the way it turned out.
Join us at Just Add Ink for this Challenge. Have a look at what the Design Team have come up with and also have a go and play along too.

Here’s a Colour Combo for you from Just Add Ink. Challenge # 377.
Great colours – kinda beachy I thought? As you probably know, I love blue and blue features in my cards quite often – so I was quite keen on this colour combo.
Here is my project…..
I made a card wallet with lovely large colourful daisies on the outside. Think this will work well for a Teachers gift. I white embossed the flowers and used some Clear faceted gems in the centre of each flower to add a bit of bling.
Inside are some matching cards and envelopes (which I have not photographed yet). I think this will make a nice little gift.
To check out heaps of other projects using these colours, go to Just Add Ink as see what the Design Team have been up too. And then join in with this challenge too!

Hi ya, far out, can’t believe its September already!! The good thing is that means Summer is coming, but the down side is it means busy season at work and I’m not really looking forward to that.
Here is the next Just Add Ink Challenge – # 375 Sketch Challenge.
I actually made a couple of cards with this Sketch. Here they are:

Hi, here’s the next Just Add Ink challenge! Karren suggested we use Stencils for Challenge # 373.
There are so many different Stencil designs to choose from and there are so many different ways to use them too. I use them quite a bit – love them actually. You can sponge them with ink (or use a dauber), smear them with embossing paste or glitter or spritz paint over them.
For my stencil card, I decided to make a background using a Stencil that has bold flowers and leaves.
I added some vellum, cord and the new Happy Birthday die cut sentiment to finish it off.
So go to Just Add Ink and check out all the other Stencil ideas and then share yours with us at Just Add Ink too.

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge (suggested by Di) is Just Choose Two – so you can choose two out of Kids, Pets or Patterned Paper and use them in your project. I went for the pets and patterned paper.
Here is this card I made.
The stamp set I used is called Bella & Friends – it’s a collection of cute dog images. The DSP is from the Naturally Eclectic DSP pack. I’ve used the Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide Card stock.
I tell ya…..the Lemon Lime Twist is becoming my new Fav!!
Visit us a Just Add Ink and join us in this challenge. For further inspiration, check out all the creations from the Design Team – they are fabulous, you will love them.

So, the Just Add Ink Challenge this week is an Inspiration Challenge that has been suggested by Rochelle You can use the colours, patterns, or some element of the picture to inspire your project.

I used heaps of different papers to create this scene. I ripped the edges of some of them to get this effect.

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week has been suggested by Kelly and challenges us to create a project that uses a “Birthday” set for ‘Christmas” projects. Being halfway through the year, it’s a great time to start getting you Christmas cards underway……so have a look at your Birthday Stamps and challenge yourself to use them in a different way.
Here are the cards that I made:
I used the Number of Years stamp set for both of these cards. It’s hard to see in my pic, but the one below has dots of glitter in each of the flowers. So, once you have created you project with a twist share it with us at Just Add Ink.
