Just Add Ink Challenge # 469 – Colour Combo

It’s time for another Just Add Ink Challenge.   Challenge # 469 is a Colour Challenge….

JAI # 469 colours

The colours a rich and bold and kinda earthy.   They were suggested by Di Barnes.

I used the new Celebrate with Cake stamp set for this Challenge.   The Stamp set is a lovely selection of solid stamps that can be used for various occasions.

JAI # 469 Chantell

I used both the Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile colours on the flowers.  I first inked the stamp up in the lighter Grapefruit Grove and then used a dauber to add a little Terracotta Tile to the tip of each flower, before I stamped it onto the card stock.

I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers, which is hard to see in the pic of the full card.  You can see the Wink of Stella glitter in the pic above though.  This was because I was tilting it in the sun.

I also made another card with the colours and stamp set.   You can see it has similar elements – and features the Cake image, from the Celebrate with Cake Stamp set.

In this case, the cake is two toned and again there is Wink of Stella highlighting some of the sections of the card.JAI # 469 b

Just Add Ink Challenge # 422 – Choose Two…

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a Choose Two.  The things you can choose from this time all have something to do with Embossing.   There are several types of Embossing – and many many ways to use it in our projects – so this Challenge allows you to do that.

I have chosen to use Embossing Paste and Embossing Powder.

No automatic alt text available.

I used a new stencil I got a couple of weeks ago – I kinda think it looks Giraffeey.  What do you think?

Heres the link to Just Add Ink – so you can check out many other creations by the Design Team and fellow Crafters.  Have fun embossing!

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!

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 #320…..Sketch Challenge!

Hi ya, it’s Friday and that means time for the next Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week we have a Sketch Challenge that has been created by Tina.    I idea is to use the sketch as inspiration when creating your next crafting project.  Here is the sketch:

And here is the card I made:

I used the stamp set called Best Thoughts.  I large flower is a perfect focal point for any card and can be used in many ways.  I used Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder.  I highlighted the flower with my white gel pen.
