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.
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.
It’s a Sketch Challenge that was suggested by Narelle.
Here is the card I made:
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.
The Just Add Ink Challenge this week is all about adding Vellum. Vellum is a great addition to cards and 3D projects. On my card today, I have die cut some leaves as an embellishment. My card is a CASE of a card from the current Stampin Up Annual Catalogue 2018-2019…..see page 9.
And below…..see my take on the card. Die cutting shapes with Vellum is a fun way to add it to your projects.
Looking back – I have used Vellum in my Just Add Ink Challenges for some time.
Below is the card I made in Just Add Ink Challenge # 2! I used the Vellum to make some flower petals…..
The challenge was to Just Add Hearts – so my idea was to have flower petals look like they were flying off and making Heart shapes.
Well here we are for the next Just Add Ink Challenge. # 428 is a Colour Challenge that is tropical, summery and I’m sure will inspire.
I think these are really pretty colours. Here is the card I made:
I used the Perennial Birthday Stamp set – which you may have worked out is my fav Stamp set at the moment. I am loving creating pretty floral cards with it.
