Just Add Ink #229....Inspiration!

This week we have a very happy & bright Inspiration challenge happening over at Just Add Ink....So many options for this one.
I took my inspiration from the layered cake in the Mason jar for my side panel and popped a whole lot of star confetti punched with the cute new star border from SU, behind an acetate window to reflect the glass idea.
Fun & Simple, but l think it fits the brief pretty well..:0)

Don't forget to pop over and check out the happy created by the design team at Just Add Ink.

Wondrous Wreath.....

Hey there!...Just popped in to share another Wondrous Wreath project. This ones pretty cas and a bit more traditional in colour, it uses the yummy new Under the Tree Specialty DSP, this paper is so thick, you really can't call it a paper, more a cardboard, it's great for making boxes and has some lovely patterns, all on Kraft backgrounds.

Wondrous Wreath...Casing the Catty!

With the countdown to the "Holiday Catalogue" release seriously underway, l decided to do something l tell myself I'm going to do every year and that is CASE some of the gorgeous samples in them and this one just stood out and begged to be cased..:0)
I pretty much cased it exactly, only adding an extra base layer and substituting the ribbon for what l had on hand and love how it turned out.

Just Add Ink #228.....Colour!

Another week has just flown by and with an icky dose of the lurgy, I'm feeling a little jibbed. The weather has been very pleasant and l had so many things planned, but to be honest, l have achieved none of them..:0(  Preferring to hide out in my playroom sneezing and spluttering all over my toy's instead! 
Which actually wasn't all that bad really, as l managed to create some samples for upcoming Just Add Ink challenges and some just for fun with a few new toys, so not all was lost..:0)

The lovely colours for this week were chosen by Kim and using various combinations, the design team have created some fab projects to inspire!
As you can see l opted for predominantly Blackberry Bliss, with hints of Moss & Calypso and again with the Tiny Triangles embossing folder..:0)

Festival of Trees......

Good Morning, If you read my previous post, you might remember me saying how many cute images were in the "Festival of Trees" set, so l thought l'd share a card l made with another style of tree and the cute little birds.
Do you love that embossed background?..It's another newbie coming up from SU called the "On Point" embossing folder, so, so cute and versatile too. I intend to use it for more than just Christmas, as l think it will work great with the other triangle elements that Stampin Up carry at the minute.
I used Moss Meadow on the trees and Gold E/P on the little pot's and Real Red for the birds. Clean & Simple...My kind of Christmas card!

Card in a Box-Festival of Trees...Sneak Peek!

With Christmas starting to enter our thoughts and some fun new Christmas products from Stampin Up, l thought l would have a play with a "Card in a Box" that's a little different in shape. I came across this gorgeous flower shop sample from the lovely and talented Di Barnes and she has generously supplied a tutorial, that's super easy to follow.
Using the awesome new "Festival of Trees" bundle, l had some fun creating this "Christmas Card in a Box". There are so many cute trees and elements in this set, that l had a hard time deciding which one to use first...:0)
The trees are stamped on Garden Green with Garden Green ink, l've added some dazzling details for the baubles and Gold Foil and Cherry Cobbler glimmer paper for the stars.
And the best part is, it folds flat and fits into a standard envelope!

A Wondrous Wreath Birthday!

Shock horror, I'm back with my second post for today and this one is using a brand spanking new stamp set, that will be available at the end of the month from Stampin Up called "Wondrous Wreath".
When purchasing Christmas products, l generally like to buy those which can be used for more than just the intended purpose and this set, although awesome for Christmas,  makes a very pretty floral wreath as well.
I stamped 2 steps of the wreath (so easy with Photopolymer) in Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive on a Very Vanilla card base and added some bitty flower punches in Pink Pirouette, Crisp Cantaloupe and So Saffron.
I also used my Blendies to colour some Basic Pearls....loving this idea, it makes it so easy to have everything matchy, matchy.
I love how dainty it looks...Pretty happy with this one..:0)
