I started by making the Vellum flower then made the rest of the card.  The layout is one that I had seen used by Narelle Farrigua.  from the Just Add Ink Design Team.

Just Add Ink #281 – Add your favourite 3 colours!

Well it’s nearly the end of the week again – and what a week!  It’s all been about work work work for me.  I feel like I have hardly been at home and I’m so glad it’s Friday tomorrow.

So being Friday – that means a fresh new Just Add Ink Challenge – and it’s a fun one this week that I know everyone can have a go at.

Just Add your favourite 3 colours!

Here’s my card:

Due to my big week at work, I decided to go for something fairly simplistic.  The colours I choose are Real Red, Island Indigo (blue) and Old Olive.

I chose these colours because:
Red – I like to wear Red, it’s a bold, confident colour
Old Olive – Years ago, when I first was introduced to Stamping Up Old Olive was one of the first colours I purchased.  I find I used it a lot on my projects.  And LOL – I had an Old Olive Sweat Shirt that I used to wear on Carding nights – funny!
Island Indigo – it’s Blue and I like Blue.

So join us at Just Add Ink for this Challenge.  It’s a fun Challenge with a fairly open theme.  Check out the rest of the Design Team projects too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 276 – Just Add Cards for Males

Sometimes, producing a ‘Man Card’ can be hard to do.  I often ask my husband his opinion and if there is any hint of glitter or ribbon – he deems it “just tooooo girly”!

So this week at Just Add Ink we are sharing our Man Card ideas, for the Just Add Cards for Males Challenge.

Here is the card I put together for this challenge:

As you can see – there is no glitter, flowers or ribbon……so I think it fits!

Head on over to Just Add Ink for more Cards for Males – the Design Team have some great cards to share.  Join us for the Challenge and share your projects with us.

Just Add Ink # 269 – Colour Combo

It’s Color Combo time at Just Add Ink this week and it’s a great Colour Combo too – put together by Kim.

This incorporates a couple of the In-colours, Tip Top Taupe and Lost Lagoon and then two very pretty blues, Soft Sky and Pool Party.

When I looked in my stash of stuff in my craft room I realised I did not have any Tip Top Taupe and the only Soft Sky item I had, was some ribbon.  So I did have to improvise a little.  Instead of Tip To Taupe I used Crumb Cake.  Here is my card.

Just Add Ink # 266 – Colour Challenge!

It’s time for a Colour challenge.  These are great because it gives you an opportunity to use colours you may not have used before (or often) or a chance to play with colours that are your favourites.  Either way, it’s a great to bring out your creativity.  This colour combination challenge is from Nikki and I think it’s going to be a very popular Challenge at Just Add Ink – so be sure you go there and check out all the great Design Team creations.  The colours this week are:

JAI # 263 – Just Add Weddings!

Hello….it’s been a while huh?

I don’t even know when I posted something last.  But I am back now.

So time for a new Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week it is Just Add Weddings!  And it’s a great Challenge to get back into the swing of things.  I thought – I did not have many Wedding things in my craft area…..but now I think I do.  I made a card using some Stamps I have had for a long long time.  They are called Jessica and Jack.  They are quite versatile because you can dress them and accessorize them to fit any occasion.  Here is my Wedding card with Jack and Jessica…..

Over the last few weeks I have also been working on making a Topiary Tree – which I also think fits this challenge quite well.  It took a long time to make all those flowers but I was happy with the overall effect.
