Just Add Ink 128 - Inspiration photo


My fellow design team member, Jodene at Just Add Ink has found a beautiful inspiration photo for us to work with this week,  It's filled with so many beautiful flowers with such fantastic colours.

Since the inspiration photo is of flowers I wanted them to be the main focus of my card and I think I've achieved that!

I've used sparklets for the middle of my flower and I think they are perfect with their surface mimicking the eye of a real flower. 

If you need any details about this card just shoot me and email.

Here is the very pretty inspiration photo for the week - 

I'd love to see how this photo inspires you so please pop over to JAI and link up you creation.

Have an amazing day!

Just Add Ink - Sketch #126

Hi lovely blog readers!!

I've got a super quick post today using the sketch at Just Add Ink.

I really loved the sketch this week and found it really easy to pull this card together and of course with all the pink I've used on this card it was fun for me to make!

I used Stampin' UP!'s glitter paper for the balloon and also on the background strip of paper (just for an extra big hit of sparkles!!)

The cute image I've used is a digi image from Lori Designs and she's called Party Time Gabbi. This is the very first digi image I've coloured in!!!! I'm not sure if I like the digi images as much as stamped images because I found when I used my 'eraser' pen it also smudged the printed lines, perhaps I'm using the wrong printer ink?
Anyway it was fun trying something new!

Here is the sketch for this week and I do hope that I'll see your entry on the JAI site!

Addicted to Stamps challenge

There is a new challenge blog called 'Addicted to Stamps' and my BFF is a guest designer there!!!

So I thought I'd put an entry in :)

This weeks challenge is a 'Bingo Card' - basically you choose a line on the card and then you have to use the 3 items specified on the line.

I've chosen the Ribbon, Gems and Flowers line. I wasn't sure what to use as my 'gems' so I've used pearls

I've made this card for a couple of friends who recenly got married overseas and then had a very long honeymoon traveling around to so many places. (Insert jealous face here!!)  I can't wait to catch up with them, see all the pictures and hear all the great stories.

Here is the bingo card for the challenge this week -

Do go and check out the new challenge blog and pop in an entry!

It was a glorious day here in Brisbane such a change from the miserable weather we had last week!!
I hope you have all had a fabulous weekend.
