Just Add Ink #313 - Just Add B

Hey there ~

We just arrived home from Hawaii last night so we're a bit pooped.  I'm soooo not ready for my holiday to be over. It's rather cold here in Canberra, when only a day or two ago we were swimming and enjoying the beach.  I don't want to have winter this year.  Anyhoo....

....I'm popping by to share a cutie little treat bag that contains a monetary gift.  That's right, there's a new challenge starting today over at Just Add Ink.  Tina suggested we add 'B' to our projects this week.  I went with Birthday - because I'm always in need of birthday cards and packaging.

The Shine On specialty designer paper I chose dictated my colour scheme.  Can you see the reverse/inside is Bermuda Bay?  I love that colour so added the matching candy dots, ribbon and twine.  I'm a bit sad to see the candy dots retire - not that I used mine often, but I have hoarded quite a few lol.

I love the B.Y.O.P stamp set.  SO versatile.  Can you see my happy accident on the inside?  I inked my stamp up with Smoky Slate rather than Bermuda Bay - had them both open in front of me.  I didn't want to start again so I just shadow stamped the sentiment with the correct colour.  Easy peasy when using photopolymer stamps.

Please join the challenge fun this week.  Head over to JAI and check out the design team inspiration, then choose your 'B' and get your craft on.

Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. So pretty! Looks so effective all colour coordinated x

  2. I love how this is solid, practical and still looks fabulous P. Love the nifty little pouch you have in the inside such a clever idea! It was shocking weather to come home to but you'll adjust...eventually... just keep telling yourself

  3. Such a pretty little card to have on hand when you need it! The shadow stamping on the inside look fab too :)
    I hope you are settling back into your routine even though it must be hard :)

  4. Wow cute!!!
    Happy accident turned out perfect ;)
    And I'm with u lets skip winter and go staight to spring 😉

  5. Such a fabulous birthday bag P! I love the celebratory shine on the DSP and such gorgeous details on your tag!! I've never really looked at the BYOP stamp set but it looks wonderful here - and especially with your cute pouch to hold the spendings in :-) Yes, not swimming weather at home I'm afraid but apparently it will only last 12 weeks, lol xxx
