Just Add Ink #295 - Sketch challenge

It's Just Add Ink challenge time!!!!
This week the challenge is a sketch and it looks very simple but I found it really challenging.

I ended up making a shaker card, I think they look fantastic and they are so much fun for the recipient!

I was thinking of ideas on how to incorporate this sweet new DSP into the card I remembered I had this cute little ice cream die from PTI.  Such a perfect match :)

You can't really see all the pretty little shimmery bits in the photo but they look so much brighter in real life.

I hope I've inspired you to join the challenge and if I haven't there are plenty more samples from the Design Team here!

Here is the sketch -

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

If you're in Australia I hope you get a little time to yourself on Australia Day to do what makes you happy.

Just Add Ink Blog Hop #294 - Just Add Something New

Hello and welcome to the first Just Add Ink challenge for 2016!

I hope you had a wonderful festive season with some time to relax and unwind.

We're starting the year with a blog hop and the theme is 'just add something new'. Join in the fun and share your creation using something new! 

If you're following along with the hop you should have arrived here from Delys' blog.

For my project I've used 2 new Stampin' UP! stamp sets I just received - Number of years and Hello. Obviously the Hello is from the Hello set and the cute little posy is from the Number of years set.
I couldn't wait to crack them open and get some ink onto them!!!! 

I had so much fun playing around with the little flowers on this posy, finding the right combination of flowers and colours! 

I fussy cut the hello and added another new product - Wink of Stella, this added a nice amount of sparkle to it.

My BFF gave me these cute little sequins for Christmas and this is the first time I've used them.  I love them, they are super sparkly!

We'd really love to see your creation and to be in the running for the prizes on offer don't forget to check out the eligibility criteria on the JAI blog.
