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.
To join in on this Challenge with us – and to see all the other wonderful creations with these colours – visit Just Add Ink.

This week the Just Add Ink challenge is to be inspired by one of our own Design Team members……Kathy Tanner. Kathy uses some great shapes in her work and is very talented at using lots of stamping images to put together collage cards. This is our chance to show you how Kathy inspires the Design Team at JAI with her work.
I really love the Ribbon Flowers that Kathy makes and the shapes that she uses in her card layouts. So instead of choosing one of Kathy’s projects to case I looked at several and put together my card:
I have used Daffodil Delight and Whisper White on this card.
So join in the fun with us and create something inspired by Kathy Tanner. Follow the link to Just Add Ink to see what the rest of the Design Team have come up with and to show us what you have put together.

We are colour in at Just Add Ink this week……..there are loads and loads of things that can be done with colouring in. I decided to take my inspiration this week from the Stampin Up Idea Books and Catalogues.
First I flicked through the Current Catty to find a colour combo. It’s from pages 50 & 51 of the current Catty. Concord Crush, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Baja Breeze.
Then I flicked through the 2007/2008 Catty to find a Layout on Page 95. HINT: I keep all my old Catties – cause they are great to use for ideas and inspiration. There are so many ideas to help get you started creating something new.
So here is the card that I came up with…….
I was amazed when colouring the flowers. I used one colour – Concord Crush and an Aqua Painter. I got such a range of colours from purple right through to pink! Wicked!

Far out – 70 Just Add Ink Challenges so far – can you believe it. Isn’t that wonderful?
So I hope you join in and play along with # 70 which is a Sketch Challenge. It is a round Sketch……
There is so much you could do with this sketch – here is the card I did
When I made this card I had been making Kid’s Cards…..so I used the little owl and brayered a background for him
Here is is open……
I really like how the leaves/branches came out actually – it as a bit of tricky cutting and glueing but worth it I think.
You should see what the other girls have made – awesome man…..check them out here at Just Add Ink.

The Challenge at Just Add Ink this week is Just Add Sympathy. Sympathy Card is actually something that I am asked to make quite often. They are ones you want to have on hand ready to give at the right moment.
It did not take me long to put this together – cause the idea had been stored in my memory for some time.
So I masked of the circle and then used my brayer and Pocket Silhouettes stamp set to do this. The colours are So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red & Chocolate chip. The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations.
Go check out the Design Teams creations here.

We are doing a Colour Combo Challenge this week at Just Add Ink. And they are lovely colours……..
This week – again I just did not know what I was going to do. And so I got the card colours out and started to play around. Then I looked at my punches and realised that I had not used the Star punches recently…..so away I went with them. And here is the end result.
So although these colours are quite girly…..my card isn’t. To be honest – I’m not sure I really even like it! But as my time was tight so I only had one chance to create for this challenge. I do like the sparkly glitter that I put on the stars.
Here is the link for you to go and check out the Just Add Ink Design Team’s creation…..and I reckon you should too…cause they are just beautiful.

It’s Colour Challenge time at Just Add Ink this week. The colours this week are sort of bright but kinda wintery too….well that’s how I put them together anyway. Here they are:
The Design Team have come up with some amazing creations using these colours. Due to changes in the way the DT works I get to have a week off this week – so you won’t see my card there as a DT member – but as a Challenge participant instead. Fun huh!!
Here’s what I did with the colours.
So you can see that I am still playing with my Brayer. And I have used the Butterfly stamp from Live Your Dream which is now a retired that I still love.
Here’s the Just Add Ink link so you can go and check out the DT projects too.
