Just Add Ink #516...Just Add Inspiration

Happy Friday ~

Welcome to the new challenge Just Add Ink challenge, a really pretty inspiration pic from Jackie.

I went with the celebratory theme as I need lots of birthday cards during August...& honestly I just can't wrap my head around Christmas in July with all this year has thrown us. I chose the red, pink, aqua & white colours from the pic, & added some shimmer embossing paste & silver thread for texture.

If you'd like to join us head over to JAI & you'll find some gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the design team. Lots of variety this week, which is what it's all about. Here is our challenge pic.

Our not so little Humphrey bun has become unwell so we're off to see our wonderful vet today. Let's hope we can fix him up & be back to bunny cuddles in no time. We love him so much. Here is is relaxed on the ottoman watching tv with us :)

Thanks for stopping by, & I hope all is well in your part of the world.

Just Add Ink #514....Just Add a Colour Combo

Hello hello ~

I'm here to share my latest card for the Just Add Ink challenge. We have a colour combo this week - Pretty Peacock, Pool Party & Smoky Slate - chosen by Kelly.

I cracked open my new So Much Love stamp set. I've popped my bloom up with dimensionals,  layered on vellum, designer paper from the Neutrals 6x6 pack & Whisper White cardstock. The gems are from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones in last year's annual catalogue.

If you'd like to join the challenge fun this week, here is the banner for you, & head over to JAI for some inspiration from the design team. We'd love to have you play along.

Well no sooner did we send the kids back to school after home schooling during the Covid isolation period & it's holiday time again. It has been nice to have a few play dates & cousin time this time around though, & we're grateful to all be healthy happy.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Just Add Ink #512....Just Add a Sketch

Happy Friday ~

We have a new sketch challenge from, Tina, kicking off today over at Just Add Ink.

My card didn't end up at all as I intended. I cracked open my new In Good Taste designer paper, thinking specifically of making something masculine. While considering what elements I was going to add to the centre I happened across a gorgeous card made by my friend, Nikki. She had used a lovely non traditional colour combo with the Forever Fern stamps. Given the stamps were still sitting on my desk brand new out of the packaging I decided to have a little play.....I thought the foliage was so pretty I just had to use them straight away. And voila, I have a pretty feminine birthday card to add to the stash.

Colours used are Grey Granate, Blushing Bride & Early Espresso with a touch of the new Brass Glimmer paper.

Here is the sketch. We'd love you to play along with us. Pop over to the JAI blog & see what it's all about. Lots of inspiration from the design team to get you started too.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend.
