Just Add Ink Challenge # 457 Sketch

With the limited craft supplies that I have available at the moment, I’m having a go at the new Just Add Ink Challenge.   This week we have a Sketch Challenge!
457 sketchAs you can see, the Sketch has a circle… I LOVE circles on cards (have you noticed that)?   While I am away from my Craft room, I have not got any punch’s or dies – so no way to cut a perfect circle.   However, instead I do have the Daisy Lane Stamp set, with a lovely large Daisy in it……therefore, the Daisy has become my Circle Element.
JAI 457.jpgFor this Challenge, rather than making a card, I have put together this little heart shaped canvas…

The paper I have used is the NEW Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP.   It’s really lovely – you may not be able to see it, but the DSP is embossed and shiny. So pretty and tactile.

The other DT projects can be found at Just Add Ink. This is also where you can join us for this Challenge.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 439 – Gift Box

Image may contain: text

Can you believe it!!   This is the last Just Add Ink Challenge for 2018!
Just Add a Gift Box is so appropriate for this time of year – and a perfect one for me to participate in because I had a couple of little gifts that I wanted to pack up for some friends.
Here is the first one………..

No automatic alt text available.

I’ve had this tree die for a couple of years now and not really used it much.  For this Gift pouch the size of the die tree worked well.

Below are a couple of the other pouches that I made.

Inside are some little fabric folded shopping bags – which is something we all need to keep in our handbags these days.

These pouches were quick and fun to make and a perfect way to dress up a little gift.

This Just Add A Gift Box challenge runs for TWO WEEKS and closing on January 2nd.   Go to Just Add Ink to enter or check out all the other gift box ideas.

Happy Christmas everyone!

Just Add Ink Challenge # 429 – Vellum!

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is all about adding Vellum.  Vellum is a great addition to cards and 3D projects.  On my card today, I have die cut some leaves as an embellishment.   My card is a CASE of a card from the current Stampin Up Annual Catalogue 2018-2019…..see page 9.

And below…..see my take on the card.     Die cutting shapes with Vellum is a fun way to add it to your projects.

No automatic alt text available.

Looking back – I have used Vellum in my Just Add Ink Challenges for some time.

Below is the card I made in Just Add Ink Challenge # 2!   I used the Vellum to make some flower petals…..

The challenge was to Just Add Hearts – so my idea was to have flower petals look like they were flying off and making Heart shapes.

You can find one of my popular Vellum projects in JAI # 125 – Just Add Winter where I made some Vellum Luminaries.   I also did this in a class Tea Light Class

Follow this link to the Vellum Luminaries – Tutorial

And below are a couple more examples of using Vellum…… Velum flowers and Butterflies.

So, spend some time playing with Vellum this week….and share your projects with us at Just Add Ink

Just Add Ink # 315 Sketch Challenge

We have a Sketch Challenge this week at Just Add Ink.  The sketch was put together by Tina.   Here it is….

Often, when  I am creating things for Just Add Ink Challenges, I am also making them for other things too…….friends birthdays, challenges that I am doing with my sister or as projects for card classes.  So this week I was thinking….how can I incorporate this Challenge and something else at the same time…….

Then last weekend I went out for a night of crafting with friends, where we all made a few boxes…..and this really inspired me to come up with this project…….which will also be used for a class project.

I used the sketch on the top of the box.

An inside……it’s a Secret box!

Thank you for visiting my Blog this year, I hope you all have a great Christmas and holiday break.

Remember to visit Just Add Ink to share your Gift Card project.

Oh and……..2 other things I wanted to share before the holidays…………………..

1 – Very very proud of Sarah for winning an award at School this year.  The most improved student.   So happy for her.  She works really hard and is always enthusiastic.

2 – I have a sore toe!   Just remember that Big Shot Magnetic Platforms are great for Holding Framelits and Edgelits in place while cutting…………..But not great for dropping on toes.   Ouch!

JAI # 263 – Just Add Weddings!

Hello….it’s been a while huh?

I don’t even know when I posted something last.  But I am back now.

So time for a new Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week it is Just Add Weddings!  And it’s a great Challenge to get back into the swing of things.  I thought – I did not have many Wedding things in my craft area…..but now I think I do.  I made a card using some Stamps I have had for a long long time.  They are called Jessica and Jack.  They are quite versatile because you can dress them and accessorize them to fit any occasion.  Here is my Wedding card with Jack and Jessica…..

Over the last few weeks I have also been working on making a Topiary Tree – which I also think fits this challenge quite well.  It took a long time to make all those flowers but I was happy with the overall effect.
