JAI # 108 – Colour Combo

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.

# 84 Just Add……White and One!

Actually if we’re talking about Coffee……I prefer White and Two but we’re not talking about Coffee.  We are talking about this week’s Just Add Ink Challenge.  It’s all about White and One other Colour.

I decided on a Colour that I have not used alot – but that I really like.  Rich Razzleberry.

I used my newest stamp set – Just Believe.  I have sprayed the entire card with Shimmer paint – which has made it super shiny – even the ribbon.

Candle Wraps

After having a couple of weeks without Classes – we kicked the classes off again last night by doing some Candle Wraps. 

I first saw these done by fellow Team Member Jan Radu – as did Kerry another Team Member.  Kerry said to me – how about doing a Candle Wraps class – so we did.

The first one we did was one that I had put together for one of the Un-convention Challenges in May.  The Challenge was to use Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard and Rich Razzleberry. 


The next Candle Wrap was inspired by this Card designed by Kerry High.  We did it at our Team Day in January.  I really like it and look at it often – hence why it became my inspiration .

I did two Candle Wraps to inspire the ladies – and then gave them a few colour choices – so they mixed and matched to put their Candle Wraps together.  Here are the one’s I did.

One thing to remember – if you decided to do something like this – is to make sure the Candle Wrap is removed when lighting the Candle…….cause it could be dangerous if it catches on Fire.

JAI # 18 Sketch Challenge

Hello Stampers,

The Challenge at Just Add Ink this week is a Sketch Challenge.  So take a look at the Sketch below and have a go at creating something.  Remember you can flip it, rotate, stretch or shrink, add a few things here and there, as long as you use the sketch as your inspiration.  You can do a card, scrapbook layout or 3D project….it’s up to you.  Just have fun.

Here is the Sketch:

And here is the Card I did:

I just got my Medallion Stamp….and I must say it has been getting a work-out.  I’ve done heaps with it already.  I love the colours on this card…it is very bright and vibrant.

The Design Team have made some beautiful things using this sketch for inspiration – so go and check it out here.
