Here is the card I made.

I made this card using Whisper White Card Stock – and then realised that I should have used Very Vanilla, to truly fit with this Challenge.  Whoops!!Anyway – I decided to leave my card as it was.

The Design Team have come up with some lovely projects using this lovely colour combo – so after you’ve got your inspiration and made your creation don’t forget share with us and link it up at Just Add Ink.

Just Add Ink # 88 – Die Cuts

Hi everyone,
It’s been a while since I have updated my blog – mainly due to life being very busy – but also because my computer had a melt-down…..literally!  The computer guy said it’s not worth fixing – so I am still computer-less.  Luckily we have more than one in the house at the moment – so I can still get this post done.

This week at Just Add Ink is Just Add Die Cuts.  There are so many lovely Die Cut shapes and ideas – but I stuck to the Top Note for this one.  I did actually make another card with the Butterflies too – but I kinda like the colours of this one more.

The colours used are Wisteria Wonder, Melon Mambo, Concord Crush, Blushing Bride and Whisper White.  The flowers are from the Vintage Vogue stamp Set.  We did this card as part of a Kissing Technique Class – and inked the Flowers with Wisteria Wonder Ink first and then stamped them on to a stamp that was covered in Concord Crush – so it picked up the ink of the other image.  Then we stamped it onto the Whisper White Card stock. 

I really like the colours together – it’s bright and beautiful.  Hope you like it too.

So pull out some Die Cuts – or make some and put together a project for the Just Add Ink Challenge.  You can enter here and also check out the Design Team projects and other entries.

Happy Stamping.

Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my Dad’s Birthday.  Happy Birthday Dad – I hope you have a great day (and aren’t too hung over after your party last night)!

Sadly – I could not make it to NZ to celebrate with Dad – so I decided to put together a card full of Candles for him.  He’s 70 – so there are 70 Candles.

I have used DSP for the Candle sticks – and all  70 of them are different!  For the Flame – I used the Petal from Vintage Vogue and Rock’n’Rolled it.

S0 – Cheers to Dad!!

Swaps, Team Events

Regional Swaps

There is no Card Class tonight – due to some ladies being sick, some away and some unable to make it…..so I thought instead I would post some of the Swap cards I got while I was at Regionals last weekend.  Enjoy……

Love this cute little bird…….made by my good friend Susan Joyce.


Made by Avril Lee – I love the colours she has used.

Ohh – I have to get some of these Butterflies.  This card is done my a fellow Just Add Ink Designer – Jodene Tripp. 

Made by Michelle Scott – love all the elements to this card – shapes and colours.

Made by  Tonia Brown.  Cool Butterfly and Vintage elements.

This is by Lynn Powell – I love all the different shapes and textures on this card.

Thank you to everyone that swapped with me.

JAI #31 Colour Challenge

It’s a Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink this week – great colours too.

I was not sure what I was going to do with this….. I ended up taking inspiration from three places.  

  • The colours
  • A card I received from my USA Secret Sister (for the lay out)
  • Thirdly…. the New Catalogue pre-view goodies I received.

Once I combined them all I came up with this.

The Stamp Set I have used in Vintage Vogue.  And I have used the Fancy Flower (extra-large) punch – which is coming to a Catalogue near you soon!

So – go check out the challenge and have a go.  The Just Add Ink Design Team girls have made some beautiful cards and projects this week – check them out.
