Just Add Ink # 369 – Inspiration

Arrhhh – it’s Sunday and I haven’t put published this post yet!!  Oh dear!   I’ve been sick for the past few days, with Winter Cold/Flu – so I have not felt like doing much at all.  But I am on the mend again now so here goes…………..

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.

Here is the card I made:

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

Head over to Just Add Ink to share your Inspiration project with us or check out all the others that have been created.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 368 A Twist…..Birthday Stamps for Christmas

 Image may contain: text

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.

Just Add Ink # 347 – Colour Combo

We are doing a Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink this week.   These colours have been suggested by Kim. Here they are:
Here is the card I made:Image may contain: plant
I used a stencil to add the leaves to the card first and then die cut some flowers  The little Perfect Plum flowers are stamped on.
These colours may see Challenging – however there are loads of ways they can be used.  Go to Just Add Ink and check out what the Design Team have done with them.

JAI # 346 Just Choose Two…….Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week allows us to combine a couple of things for our projects.  The idea is to Choose Two!   Hearts or Flowers or Butterflies.  Here is the card I put together:

My idea was to try to use the pages from a colouring book in some way – so I die cut some Butterflies (and left them uncoloured).  I used a floral DSP to add some colour too.

So go to Just Add Ink and check out all the great projects that also Just Add Two (Hearts, Flowers or Butterflies).   And remember to share your project with us.

Just Add Ink #340…Just Add a Gift Tag

The new Just Add Ink Challenge is here…..Just Add…..Gift Tags, is Challenge # 340.
Although there are not many weeks left of 2016, this is such a fabulous time of year to get to your craft table or room and create.  And this weeks Challenge is perfect for creating …. because Just Add Gift Tags allows you to create small unique pieces of art with loads of Bling and Glitter and Ribbon and…..you name it!
I added my  Gift Tag to a card.  Here it is:
 I used Gold Foil Card to make the Ornament – and all I can say about that is…..it’s really really hard to photograph!!  But the card was quick and easy to put together and would work just as well as a tag only.
So – go to Just Add Ink to get some further ideas – you will see by the gift tags the design team have created the ideas are endless.   They have made some beauties.  Have fun with this Challenge and remember to share your projects with us.

Just Add Ink # 337 – Just Choose Two!!

Hello again – here’s the next Just Add Ink Challenge.  For Challenge # 337 Kim suggested that we add a Doily or a Die Cut or Patterned Paper to our projects.

Here is my card…….

I added Patterned Paper and a Doily.

To be honest – I find it hard to add doily’s to my projects, although I always like other projects I see with them on.  So I decided to have a go.

I have used to Celebrate Today Stamp set.

Here is another card I made with Patterned paper and a Doily:

So have a go with this Challenge – I’m sure you will enjoy it – I know the Design Team did.  Check out their projects at Just Add Ink.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 318……’Just Add S’!!!

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is  “Just Add S” – suggested by  Tina.

There are so many possibilities for this Challenge such as -Stamping, Scrunching, Stitching, Sponging, Stripes, Spots, Stars etc.

For my ‘S’ project, I chose to make a starburst with Designer Series Paper.  It’s a great way to use up all those little scraps of paper and is fun to do.

To join us for this fun Challenge – Just Add ‘S’, go to Just Add Ink and share your project with us.  Check out all the other wonderful S projects.

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!

Just Add Ink # 303…….Just Add E

It’s Friday  (well it’s actually Saturday and I am just late posting this!) and it’s time for the new Just Add Ink challenge.   Challenge # 303 has been suggested by Tina.  “Just Add …E”

So with Easter coming up in about a week or so I created an Easter Card.

I like the bright colours on this card – I noticed them in the Shop window of a Chocolate Factory Shop as I was walking to work one morning during the week…..the little dots were punched and glued on individually.
I’ve been working on some fancy fold cards this week – and this is one of them.
Below are some pics to show you how it opens.

Join us for this fun Just Add E challenge at Just Add Ink.   Check out all the lovely Easter (and other E themed projects) that you can CAS from the Design Team.
