Just Add Ink Challenge # 465 – Add the Season

Image may contain: text

When I arrived in Rotterdam in March, it was the end of Winter and there were no leaves on the trees.   During the following months, the trees and flowers bloomed.  It was so lovely to see all the bright leaves.

One of my adventures was going to see the Tulip fields.  I hired a bike and spent the day discovering the Haarlem area.  It was a fabulous day – despite my sore bottom after about 5-6 hours on the bike.

Now I am back in Australia, and most of the leaves have gone from the trees.  But I noticed there are a few leaves that are clinging to their trees and they are many different colour’s.   So my card this week is based on Autumn leaves.

No photo description available.

Also – can you see the leaves in the background of my photo?  I actually took this pic at the Train Station (where I park my car on week days).  There are piles and piles of leaves around – so I decided they would make a good background for this card.

For this card I used stamps from two Stamp sets:  Floral Essence and Rooted in Nature.  The DSP is Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP

It would be great if you could join us for this Season Challenge.  Here is the link to Just Add Ink where you can join the Challenge and also see many other Just Add the Season projects from the Design Team.

I made this for a friend who is turning 50 soon.  She loves the colour green so I used a number of different shades of green on my card.  I used a glitter embossing paste to add some detail to the background.Head to Just Add Ink to join this challenge and/or to check out what the Design Team have put together to provide you with inspiration.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 445 – Embossing.

Image may contain: text

Here’s a fun challenge – Just Add Embossing.   There are a few types of embossing you could add to your projects this week…….Dry embossing (using a Embossing Folder or Embossing by hand), Heat Embossing – so inking, sprinkling with powder and then heating is and Embossing paste (stenciled maybe).

I used Heat Embossing and Embossing Paste on my card.

 

 

I coloured the Embossing paste with a bit of Re-inker.  Then I used the brick stencil with the Embossing paste t make the bottom panel.

 

Next I Heat embossed the tools.  I actually used both silver and black embossing powder to get the two-tone tools.

I like how the tools look so shiny.

So join us for this Challenge – show us how you like to use Embossing on your projects.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 443 – Just Add Two…

Image may contain: text

The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a fun Choose Two challenge (suggested by Jan). So that means you can ‘Choose Two’ out of the three options Embossing Paste, Colouring or Sequins to feature on your project.
I choose the Embossing Paste and Sequins – although now when I look at it………I have all three on there.  LOL.

No photo description available.

I coloured the Embossing Paste with my re-inkers and then mushed them together to get the colours mixing.   The Butterfly comes from the Sale-a-brations Botanical Butterfly DSP

Here’s the link to Just Add Ink – so you can check out all the other Choose Two projects – and share yours with us too.

Just Add Ink Challenge # 442 – Sketch Challenge

This week there is a Special Birthday happening in our family, so I used the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge as the start for a Special Birthday Card.

For this card, it was important to me to use the Black and White – as I see Black and White as National colours for NZ.  Our Sports Teams wear Black and White, we are from the Land of the Long White Cloud  and so I decided to incorporate Black and White into this card.    Next I decided on Tropical prettiness as this card is for a beautiful young lady.  Happy Birthday Ana!

Hi ya, Happy 2019 everyone!!   This is going to be a very exciting year, so stay tuned for things to come!!

Welcome also to the first “Just Add Ink” challenge for 2019.    In true Just Add Ink tradition we are starting the year with a Blop Hop – so I hope you are hoping along and enjoying see all the Just Add Something New projects.  You may have just come from Kim’s Blog,

The  “Just Add Something New!” Theme is perfect for this time of year, because not only is it a New Year – but we also have a new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-brations in full swing too.   

Adding “Something New” to your projects may be in the form of a new product, stamps, a technique or even something from your craft stash that you have not used before.

So here is my “Just Add Something New!” project

I have used the Gingham Gala DSP from the Occasions Catalogue and the So Hoppy Together Stamp Set from the Sale-a-bration

The Gingham kinda reminds me of the table cloths that my Grandma used to have on her table.  I really love the soft pretty colours.When you have worked your way through the Blog Hop, join us for this Challenge at Just Add Ink.
