Just Add Ink # 237......Acrylic Block Stamping!

Happy Friday everyone!......Paula has challenged us to use "ACRYLIC BLOCK STAMPING" for this weeks  Just Add Ink Challenge.
I had planned on doing something more involved, but as l started playing, that changed to literally inking, misting and stamping with an acrylic block...Simple!
I used my SU markers in Bermuda Bay-Coastal Cabana & Pool Party to colour the block on the diagonal, misted it lightly with water and stamped.
Once that was almost dry, l sprayed water into my palm and flicked it over, allowing it to wick out and create a motley effect.

Don't forget to stop by the challenge blog and see the inspiration from the rest of the design team.

Hey There Buds..........

Evening!....Everyone needs a notebook/shopping list...Right? Here are a couple of small notebooks l embossed with the "Hey There Buds" stamp for a couple of friends..:0)
I've had these sitting in a drawer for ages and thought they'd look much better with some decoration on them..:0)
This stamp embosses beautifully, due to the lovely solid design and being a dark red, the gold and silver really standout...Pretty happy with these!

Four Feathers!

After making my card for the Just Add Ink challenge, l decided, while l  had everything out still, l would have a play with a pink and gold version.
I stamped the feather images onto Vellum using Encore Gold ink and a couple onto the panel, using Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink in various strengths.
I love how well the brushed gold cardstock matches the Encore gold ink, both have a softer matt look.

Little Letters Love!

Hey there!....I've been having another play with the partial die cutting technique and thought it would be cute in a "Love & Heart" theme.
I used Naturals White cardstock, with Crumbcake and Champagne Shimmer Paper. I also created a matching gift box, using the Curvy Keepsake die and the heart framelits with some window sheet.

Just Add Ink #236....Inspiration!

Happy Friday peeps!...It's Just Add Ink  challenge time and this week we have some inspiration of the "Feathery" kind...
These colours are so vibrant and pretty and teamed with a hint of gold, they really are lovely together.
Initially l had intended using the gorgeous "Perfect Peacock" stamp, but then l totally went off in a different direction..:0)
I'm enjoying adding Washi to my cards of late and l had colours that worked with the inspiration, plus l wanted to play with my "Four Feathers" bundle again, so it kind of evolved from there.

Colourful Four Feathers!

Colourful is certainly an understatement for this one. I was in the mood for colours and patterns and this was the result. 
I don't love it, but then again I'm sharing, so l guess l don't dislike it either..:0)
It started with wanting to have a play with the "Four Feathers" dies and dsp and l needed a card with a younger appeal...It's kinda bright & fun!

Festival of Trees!

Hey there!...I'm back to share the 3rd card in the "Black/Vanilla" combo. This one uses the very cute "Festival of Trees" bundle.
I came across This stunning card from Georgeann Manning and just had to case..:0) It's a perfect fit for the colours I've been using for Christmas. I added some Washi Tape, but pretty much cased her gorgeous card design, as is.

Flower Shop Garden Wall.....

Happy Sunday to you!....My project for today, is a birthday card l made for a sweet friend that was celebrating her "60th" Birthday.....
I wanted to create something a little more detailed than my normal and incorporate some blue tones.
I started with a cardbase, cut on a diagonal, using the length of a piece of A4 cardstock. The measurements l used are 5-1/2" at the top & 3-1/2" at the bottom.
I scored the A4 length @ 3-7/8" & 7-3/4" to create even panels. I used the current Hardwood background stamp on all but the inner center panel....You can see in the pics below that I've decorated both sides, as you need to do that for when it's folded.
The colours l used are Calypso Coral-Crisp Cantaloupe-Crumbcake-Wild Wasabi & Lost Lagoon. I've coloured the rhinestones with Coastal Cabana Blendabilities.
