Just Add Ink # 230 – Just Add Dad!

Hi everyone!…it time for the next Just Add Ink Challenge.  It’s a very special one this week.   Just Add Dad!

This challenge is celebrating Dad’s, because this weekend, it’s Fathers Day in Australia and New Zealand,    So it’s a great time to create a special card or project especially for Dad.
Here is my card:

I’ve used a couple of the new In-colours, Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon.   I’m loving that stitched satin ribbon!
I don’t know if any of you joined us at Just Add Ink for last weeks challenge?  It was an Inspiration Challenge – using  wonderful, colourful, rainbow pictures.  There were heaps of amazing projects that were shared with us…..I really enjoyed looking at them and think I will go back for more looks and inspiration.
The reason I mentioned it, is because the card I have done this week started with a technique shared in last weeks challenge.  Leah Weir shared a beautiful card with a great background technique – and I just had to give it a go.
This was my first attempt.  It’s fun, easy and very effective,  so you should try it too.
Meanwhile…….Join us for Just Add Dad’s – at Just Add Ink.  
We did Fathers Day a bit early.  First we met Ana and Jeremy for lunch – which was very nice.  Then afterwards Sarah and Neil went GoKarting.  Both loved it – and they have been back again this week for another go after school.

This colour combo features 2 of the new In-colours – Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow.  Both are stunning colours.  I love the richness of the Blackberry Bliss and the shiny Mossy Meadow ribbon.

Here is my card…

For me – these were very bold colours to work with and it took me a few goes to complete a card I like.   For the layout – I have to give credit to Joanne from Crafty Owl .  Follow the link to check out Joanne’s work.

I am loving my new stamp set Kinda Eclectic too……it’s been getting a work out!

Just Add Ink # 218 – Colour Combo

It’s a Colour Challenge (with a Twist) at Just Add Ink this week, courtesy of Kim.

The reason this Colour Challenge has a twist is because there are actually 5 colours – but you can pick which 3 you would like to use.  These 5 colours are the 2012-2014 Stampin Up In-colors and are very close to retiring – so this is our way of saying farewell to them.

Here are the colours …

Here is the card I did:

JAI # 217 Just Add a Cup cake or Cake

This sounds like a yummy challenge doesn’t it?   It’s certainly a fun one.

At first I did not think I had any Cake or Cup Cake images in my stamp collection.  But I do have a couple.

I went for peppermint green! Yummy.

The colours are actually Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe.  For the Layout – I looked through some old Catalogues for inspiration.  The stamps came from the Happy Moments Stamp Set.

So check out the rest of the Yummy cake and cupcake creations from the Just Add Ink Design Team and play along with our Just Add a Cup Cake / Cake Challenge.
