Just Add Ink #223 - Sketch

Just Add Ink have a new challenge this week and it's a fab sketch!

Have you been eyeing off all the yummy new things in the new Stampin' UP! catalouge???? 
One of my first purachases was the cotton ribbon I've used on this card.  It's so easy to work with and has a beautiful feel and so many pretty colours too.

The 'baby' die cut I've used is from Papertrey Ink - isn't it just adorable!

You might note that I didn't get the sketch exactly as it should but as one of my fellow Design Team members said - it's using my creative licence!

Here is the sketch -

I'd love to see how you use your creative licence with this sketch so please join us and link up here.

Happy Friday!!

Just Add Ink #221 - Just Add Shakers!

Welcome to my little part of blog land!

Today is Just Add Ink challenge day and the challenge is to just add SHAKERS.

What is a shaker card?
I'd never made one before....... so just in case you didn't know a shaker card is a card with a see through window that is filled with fun sparkly items! There is enough room in the window for the items to move around when shaken.

I decided to use vellum as my window and I filled it with little colourful circles and some glass glitter!

I think the vellum mutes the colours nicely so they aren't too bright and I really like this idea to add some fun to a birthday card!

You should see the fantastic creations by the Design Team this week - I will definitely be pinning some of them for future CASing!   I really like the 'shaker' and think I'll be using it again soon.

I'd love to see your take on a shaker card so come join us here.

Also a big WELCOME to Deb who is joining our Design Team for a little while!!!!
