Just Add Ink #493...Choose Two!

Good Morning!

This weeks Just Add Ink challenge from Patrice, is all about choice! We get to choose 2 of the options above to add to our projects...I love these challenges, always fun trying to decide!

I have chosen the super cute and pretty "All Dressed Up" bundle which gives me instant stitching and buttons, plus those very dainty blooms and images to colour.
The cardstock is non SU from my stash and it worked beautifully colourwise with some retired Cucumber Crush dsp and Lovely Lipstick blends...My aim this year is to use up my abundance of cardstocks and dsps that l've had for ages and are no longer current or not SU....Need to make room for "New".

The card inspiration came from one that Stampin Ups! CEO Shelly Gardner created...The fold had me intrigued, so after a few failed attempts, l finally got the sizing l was happy with.

The rest of the design team have created some great "Choose Two" projects, so make sure you stop by the challenge blog and have a look.

Just Add Ink #491...Inspiration!

Photo Credit:

Its Friday...Yay!

Today the Just Add Ink team are playing with some pretty beach inspiration. Pinks-Palm Trees & sunshine, whats not to love!

Using the Timeless Tropical bundle and dsp with the sweet flower & large leaf from Tropical Chic this is what l came up with.
I decided to pull out my sparkly embossing paste and smeared a thin layer at random on the bottom half to replicate the sand. It adds such a lovely sparkle and l forgot how fun it is to use.

My go to colours were Pretty Peacock-Kraft-Petal pink and Pink Pirouette, using my Old Olive & Soft Suede markers for the palm trees.

Just Add Ink #490...Add an Easel!

Happy Friday to you!
Over at Just Add Ink this week, the lovely Lou has challenged us to "Add an Easel". I always love creating fun fold cards and often my go to is a 4"x 4" size for an easel card, as l find it easier to create something l like in small scale.
I have gone tropical for this one using a new fave bundle called "Timeless Tropical" So much to love about this suite, with its gorgeous tropical florals and beautiful colours and images.
But today l've gone crisp and clean, using simple stamped images in Perfect Peacock-Melon Mambo-Coastal Cabana and sparkly gold accents.

Lots of fabulous "Easel" inspiration happening on the blog, so make sure you pop over to see all of the design teams lovely projects!
