Just Add Ink Challenge # 410…..Inspiration

Hi ya – it’s Friday, which means the next Just Add Ink Challenge is here…….Challenge # 410 is an Inspiration Challenge.   That means we use a Photo or Picture to inspire us when crafting.

The Pic this week was suggested by Jo – and it has loads of elements that can be used for Inspiration.   It could be the colours, shapes or particular elements like the Banner or pillows that Inspire you.    Here is the Inspiration pic……

I used the colours and some of the shapes and dots to inspire me……. here is my card:

I’m really liking using this back ground stamp at the moment – I really love the textured look it gives to card.  It call Burlap.

So – here is the link to the Just Add Ink Challenge – so that you can check out the Design Team projects and also join us for this Challenge.

Challenges, Just Add Ink, Sketch Challenge

Just Add Ink Challenge # 396 Sketch

Sketches are great ways to start your projects – they give you a layout to begin with that you can flip different ways or turn around to help you put together a card or lay out.   The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge.  Here’s the Sketch:

I decided not to flip it or turn it around……just went with it as is:No automatic alt text available.

My background panel was created with Brusho’s – and the colours in them determined the rest of the colours on my card.

Just Add Ink # 392 – Blog Hop – Just Add Something New!

 

Happy New Year everyone – 2018 is here!!

There is no better way to kick off the year, than with a Blog Hop.

The 2018 Just Add Ink Blog Hop theme is Just Add Something New.

So that means…. What’s new in your craft area?  It might be some paper, colours or pencils or something you haven’t used before.   This is going to be a fun challenge with endless possibilities.  We hope you will join the challenge with us.

When looking through my craft area I found quite a few things I had not used before and a couple of new things too.   My Just Add Something New items come from the 2018 Occasions Catalogue.   I’ve used the Sunshine and Rainbows Stamp Set and Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies.

I used them to put together an Easel card.

I wanted the Rainbow to stick up above the clouds, as if it’s in the air.  This was a fun card to make.

The Blog Hop is set up in a loop so it doesn’t matter where you start.  All you need to do is to follow along is click the “Next” Button at the end of each persons post and you will be taken to the next stop.  Remember the Blog Hop also incorporates the Just Add Ink Challenge for this week.  You can join in this weeks challenge by making a project that includes something New from your Craft area.

So – here we go, now it’s time for you to move onto the next Just Add Ink Design Team Member.  Just click on the button below and you will move onto the lovely Narelle’s Blog.

Enjoy the Blog Hop, gather inspiration and then join us for this Challenge at Just Add Ink.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 377 – Colour Challenge

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!

Just Add Ink # 365 – Sketch Challenge

This weeks Just Add Ink Challenge is a sketch.  These are great because there are so many possibilities.  I made 2 cards this week for the Challenge.  Here is the sketch…..No automatic alt text available.

Here is my first card.

I used the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp Set, which is one of my new ones.  I really like it too.  The sentiment comes from a stamp set called Thoughtful Banners – its a sweet little set of words.  I used some of the silver thread, silver foil card and little pink rhinestones to add a bit of bling.

And the second card I made is a fun Everyday Hero card:

I just love this stamp set too.  Its cheeky and fun!!
