Just Add Ink #425...Inspiration!







Good morning!  It's time for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge and this week Kelly has given us this lovely springy inspiration to create with.

Having just received my gorgeous new "First Frost" bundle available now in the new Stampin Up! Holiday catalogue, l was a little excited to see this inspiration in our challenge schedule and knew l had to combine the two!
The colours l chose are Mossy Meadow-Soft Sea Foam-Blackberry Bliss-Powder Pink and gold. I'm pretty happy with my take on an "Aussie Bush Christmas" card, if you can call it that? either way I'm loving this product suite.


The rest of the team have created some absolutely beautiful projects, so make sure you swing by the challenge blog for loads of inspiration.

Just Add Ink #424...Texture!




This weeks Just Add Ink challenge is all about texture! Di has challenged us to add texture to our projects in any form.
As l had been playing with the "Magical Mermaids" & 'Sea of Textures" stamp set, l decided to combine the two with the shimmery embossing paste as sand.
This adds loads of sparkle and l think it works pretty well as my textural element.

To create my background l used a piece of shimmer cardstock and a combination of Pool Party & Mint Macaron swiped on my craft sheet and spritzed with water and my mermaid was coloured with a combination of SU blends and Bic markers. Her tail has a very liberal coating of Dazzling Details just to add a little more sparkle.



Loads of texture happening over on the challenge blog, so make sure you pop over and see the fabulous projects from the rest of the team.

Colour INKspiration #40

 Colour Ink



Hello!...It's time to share our current Colour INKspiration hop. 

I must say it took me awhile to decide on a set to use these colours with, but in the end the big, bold, butterfly from the "Beautiful Day" set won out.
I embossed in white E/P on watercolour paper, it also has an amazing layer of sparkle using "Champagne Shimmer" that the pic just doesn't capture.

If you are happily hopping l'm sure you are loving all of the fabulous design team projects and have just arrived from the blog of Rachel Palmieri and her pretty project.

Stamp Review Crew...Varied Vases!

 Stamp Review Crew


Good Morning!

Its time for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop. For this one we are showcasing the the super cute "Varied Vases" bundle.

I had lots of fun making this cute little gift card and envelope set using the Whisper White narrow note cards and envelopes that come in a pack of 20. These are great for making quick little gift cards for when you only want something small.
The dsp is a retired one called Petals & paisley and the colours are just gorgeous and work beautifully with some of the returning colours in the Stampin Up! colour refresh. The ones l've used are Mint Macaron-Delightful Dijon & Cajun Craze....I love being able to use up my abundance of dsp!
I have so much unloved dsp, that needs to be used and the Varied Vases bundle is just perfect for all of those scrappy pieces we tend to hoard...well l do anyway :0)

Have you just arrived from my lovely and talented friend Kelly Kent and her beautiful project? If not you can follow the hop loop to complete the circle. 
The SRC crew have no doubt created some amazing projects, so make sure you click on the "Next" banner below for loads of inspiration.




  Now you are off to be inspired by the lovely Ann Schach and her fabulous Varied Vases project.

Just Add Ink #422...Choose Two!




Good Morning blog friends!

Its time for another fun challenge over on the Just Add Ink blog and this week Rochelle has given us  a multiple choice challenge!

I wanted to play with my Painted Glass bundle again, so l have combined that with the "Subtle" embossing folder for the background and Basic Black embossing powder for the sentiment as my two challenge elements.
I decided on a wedding card in Basic black-Powder Pink & Old Olive as my colours and coloured my blooms with Stampin blends! Not that you can really see it, but l've added loads of Wink of Stella to add some sparkle. I just love how the options for this bundle can create such varied looks.



The rest of the design team have used a variety of element combinations, so make sure you pop over to the challenge blog for loads of inspiration.
