JAI # 118 – Just Add Mae!

Yay – it’s time to honor one of our fabulous Design Team Members as Just Add Ink.  This week we are being inspired by Mae Collins. 

Mae’s projects are full of wonderful shapes and colours.  We both share a love for the Stamp Set Just Believe – so I have CASE’d one of her Cards that uses it.   Here is Mae’s card:

I really like the technique that Mae used and the colours too……so they also feature in my Card. 

Here is mine:

I’ve done a Centre Step card – this is the first time I have done one – and really love the effect.  I added a few butterflies and a bit of lace ribbon.  You probably can’t see it – but I spritzed the Butterflies with Shimmer Mist too.

Visit Just Add Ink here to see the other projects inspired by Mae.  And remember to have a go yourself and share it with us. 

Also – you may have noticed that I did not post my JAI Project from last week – I meant to….but I was just busy and tired and felt I needed a little rest…….so did not get round to it.  Never mind. 

The JAI challenge last week was a Colour Challenge – So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  Oh Man! I thought this was gonna be hard – but it actually came together quite nicely.


I made this Card and Candle cover – and I also made a matching Bag.  They were part of a Gift for my friend Charlene who had a birthday recently.  I really liked how they came out.

# 84 Just Add……White and One!

Actually if we’re talking about Coffee……I prefer White and Two but we’re not talking about Coffee.  We are talking about this week’s Just Add Ink Challenge.  It’s all about White and One other Colour.

I decided on a Colour that I have not used alot – but that I really like.  Rich Razzleberry.

I used my newest stamp set – Just Believe.  I have sprayed the entire card with Shimmer paint – which has made it super shiny – even the ribbon.

JAI # 71 – Just Add Black and White

The Challenge this week at Just Add Ink is Just Add Black and White.  I found it to be a great project theme – I really like working with the contrasts.  I used to use alot of white on my cards but over time have moved away from doing that so it took me a bit of fiddling round to get to the end result.  Here it is………

I started by stamping the background with Whisper White Craft Ink……then thought – I want my White to be stronger – so embossed some of the images over the top……and it was OK – but I decided it need more dimension – so that bit went in the bin and I started again.

I still did the background Stamping but then made the Torn Window and stamped, embossed and cut out the individual leaves to stick in the window.  I used the Just Believe Stamp Set.

The Design Team have made some beautiful Black and White projects…..check them out here.  And don’t forget to have a go yourself and join in the fun.
