JAI # 199 Just Add a Sketch

It’s the first Sketch Challenge for 2014 – I love Sketch Challenges too.  The Sketch this week has been provided by Tina.  Here it is:
Here is the card that I made:
I have been going through my cupboard playing with things that I have not had out in a while – this week I have been playing with the Sweet Treat Cups.

And for this card I decided to also use up some of the Pot Pourri that I had there too.  I rock n rolled the petals that leaves to get some mixed colours and to match the dried flower petals in the centre.  You kinda can’t see it in the pic – but I have also spritzed it with Gold Shimmer Paint.

The design team have made a lovely range of projects using this sketch – check them out at Just Add Ink.   And join the Challenge by making a card, 3D project or LO too.

Just Add Ink # 182 Frames

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is Just Add Frames.  

I was thinking about Frames and all the different types – like door frames, the frames of your glasses, the frame around your computer screen ….there are so many.

I thought about the type of frames on cards – and I decided my fav type was a shaker card – so that is what I did.  Here it is:

I really like how these colours came together too – it was my first play with the new Incolours.  I have used: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding.  They are very soft and pretty.

So if you have an idea for a card or project that incorporates a Frame – make it and then share it with us at Just Add Ink.

JAI # 178 – Just Add Snowflakes

Well I must say – Just Add Snowflakes is so appropriate for today….it’s freezing here.  I imagine that it’s also freezing in other parts of the country and in NZ too.  We have had a cold, wet, rainy, windy day today.  Although we have not had (and will probably never have) any snowflakes.

Here is the Card I did for this challenge……….

And it is my first Christmas Card for 2013 too.  The Snowflake in the middle spins around – and is different colours on each side.

So if you have snowflakes at your place – or like me….just feel like you do – have a go at a Snowflake project and join our Challenge.  Go to Just Add Ink to check out all the other Snowflake projects or to show us your project.

JAI # 158 – Sketch Challenge

This week we have another sketch challenge at Just Add Ink – put together by Mae.  This is a great sketch with so many possibilities.  Here is the sketch.JAI158_Sketch[2]

And this is the card that I put together:DSC00107
I used the Comfort Cafe Designer Series Paper and the colours in it to decide on the rest of the project.  I used Midnight Muse Ink and Card Stock – which is a lovely blue.  And the Oval is done with Summer Starfruit Card stock.  I’m loving the Flower Trim – which is Very Vanilla – but I have coloured it with Midnight Muse Ink.  The Sentiment and Butterfly comes from the Bloomin Marvelous SAB Stamp Set.


So you can see that I enjoyed this Challenge and I know the rest of the Design Team did too.  Go to Just Add Ink to check out their beautiful projects.  Then have a go at the Challenge too and share your project with us.
