Just Add Ink #329 - Inspiration photo


Yep that's right it's time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink! This week we have a vibrant photo to inspire you :)

I've really run with the theme of flowers and also all the beautiful colours!

I've made a type of chocolate slider.

Basically I've used a kitkat, wrapped a piece of DSP around it and then put a rectangle piece of card behind it so that I can write a little message on it. I've then wrapped daffodil delight ribbon around the two and tied a knot at the top! 

I'm super keen to see how this photo inspires you so please join in and link up your creation here.

Here's the inspiration photo -

Just Add Ink #327- Colour Combo

It's colour combo time at Just Add Ink this week!!!

The colours are Soft Sky, Dapper Denim and Calypso Coral.

It's definitely not a colour combination that I'd think of but I really love how the Calypso Coral really pops out off the two blues.

I've used the 'happy' die in Calypso Coral as the main focus on my page.  This card was made with a person in mind who is always happy!!!

You might not be able to see but I couldn't help but spray a little shimmer in the background and the white circle is from some older DSP that has a crisscross pattern on it.

I really hope you get a chance this week to take some time for your self and to do some crafting!!

Just Add Ink #325 - Sketch challenge

This week at Just Add Ink there is a super versatile sketch challenge designed by Tina!

I've decided to flip the sketch and create a shaker card.
I made this card for my Niece who recently turned 1 :)

I thought she love all the shine and noise of a shaker card!

Here is the sketch

Check out what the Design Team have created here.
Of course don't forget to link up your creation as I'd really love to see your take on the sketch.

Happy Friday!

Just Add Ink #323 - Just Add F

Hey happy Friday!
Can you believe it's August already.... wooah slow down time.

At Just Add Ink this week the challenge is to add something starting with F.  At first I was stumped as to what I could do.... there's the obvious one - flowers.... but it took a little time to think of what else I could do!

So there's the big flower, I've also added a pleat fold, added a 'friend' sentiment and used the new in-colour Flirty Flamingo!!!

When I first started thinking of ideas I never imagined I'd find so many 'f' things to have on my card.

I'm really keen to see what you can come up with so please link up your card here.

Just Add Ink #321 - Just Add Paper piecing!

Hello Hello happy Friday to you all!!!

This week the challenge at Just Add Ink is paper piecing :)
What is paper piecing.... well my understanding is it's about using pieces of paper and piece them together or into place.

So I've used some DSP and pieced it in the place of a shirt for this little birthday boy.

I made this card with a little birthday boy in mind who is turning 2 this weekend and we'll be attending his party - and the weather looks like it 's going to be amazing!

I've winked up his balloon but after photographing it I think I should have used some crystal effects instead.

It's the first time that I've used my copics in a long time so it took me a little while to colour this guy in.

I'd love to see your interpretation of paper piecing so please join in the challenge here.
