Just Add Ink #312...Colour!


JAI #312


It's time for another fun Just Add Ink challenge and this week Patrice has given us a lovely colour combination to work with.

I must admit to being a little stumped at first working with all of those blues, but l eventually decided to revisit last weeks masking techniques and this was the result...I love the universe/moon effect.

Using the insert from some paper towel roll and my very unloved masking fluid, l randomly stamped and splattered over some Whisper White with the paper tube.
Once the masking fluid was completely dry, l then set about adding variations of the blues direct from my ink pad to a Teflon kraft sheet, spritzed it liberally with water and laid my whisper white on top and smooshed it around (do you like my technical terms..lol) I repeated this adding more colour and water to the Kraft sheet until l was happy with the look.
Once it was all completely dry, l used my fingers to remove the Masking fluid, added some Silver details and teeny tiny stars from the confetti border punch to finish it off.
The greeting is from the SAB set called Perfect Pairings.

Just Add Ink #311....Masking!




Happy Friday to you!....Over at Just Add Ink this week we have a technique challenge happening, we want you to "JUST ADD MASKING".
I love playing with this technique and it can be achieved in such a variety of ways. I went with a basic method of die cutting an oval from the "Ovals Collection" and used temporary adhesive to hold it in place to create my mask.
Using my fave go to stamp set of "Botanical Blooms" along with "Botanicals for you" l stamped around the edge of the mask in Crisp Cantaloupe & Calypso Coral-Rose Red-Old Olive & Daffodil Delight...Then added the fine black sprays with the fine tip on my Basic Black marker.
Once l was happy with that, l removed the mask and stamped the sentiment from Watercolour Words in Basic Black, added some piercing and it was done...CAS!



Make sure you stop by the JAI blog and check out the rest of the design teams awesome masking ideas!

Happy Mothers Day!


"Happy Mothers Day"

Wishing all of my lovely mum friends and family a wonderful day that you all so deserve. You inspire me in so many ways and for that l am always so thankful to have you all in my life...Mwah!

I thought l would pop in and share some cute little gift boxes l created for some lovely mums to wish them an extra special day!
If you are like me, you will have accumulated a stack of dsp over the years and I've decided it's time to use it up...:0)
With all of the fun punch boards available from Stampin Up, it makes it so easy to create sweet gift boxes and bags and as l also love creating candles and melts, it's a perfect match and something l love gifting.




And just in case you were wondering what l popped in them...It's a giant rose melt!

Just Add Ink #310....Sketch!



Happy Friday lovelies! It's Just Add Ink challenge time and this week Tina has provided a cute sketch for us to play with.

I came up with a few "Round" card ideas, but finally settled on incorporating the sketch on my card front....Can you see it?
I'd been chomping at the bit to use the Sunburst die and it seemed to be the perfect fit for the sketch..:0) I lightly sponged some Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron behind the diecut and also above and below on the sentiment panel...It's hard to see in the pics but it is there and more vibrant IRL.

                              

The design team have some fab inspiration using the sketch, so don't forget to pop over and check them out!

Stamp Review Crew...Blended Bloom Edition!



 Stamp Review Crew

Welcome to another fun hop from Stamp Review Crew.  For this one we are showcasing the lovely big "Blended Bloom" It's such a lovely image and is very versatile.
I went with a fun inky technique that l haven't used in forever..I stamped and heat embossed the image on a piece of Shimmer cardstock in Whisper White E/P. Then l liberally coated the whole image with water using my Aqua pen and then added some Daffodil Delight re-inker in dots on each petal and let the water do the rest...So easy and effective. I must add that l let it dry naturally vs heat drying, it seems to pool better. Once it was nice and dry, it got a good coat of Wink of Stella pen.

Just Add Ink #309...Inspiration!




It's challenge day again over at Just Add Ink and before stepping down from the design team Jodene gave us this pretty inspiration to play with.
I decided to step away from my usual choice of using the colours in the pic and chose to include some chevrons and texture as per the blanket and chair for a change.

The design team have created some gorgeous projects for you, so don't forget to stop by Just Add Ink and check those out.



Measurements:
The base is half of a standard A4 scored at 1-3/4" & 6-3/4". 
Fold at the base scoreline and make a mark 1/2" in from each side on the base fold and trim from there to the 1-3/4" scoreline (pot flap) on the outer edge of both sides creating the pot shape.
The slider insert is Night of Navy-2-3/4" x 5-1/8"  White-2-1/2" x 4-7/8"

Just Add Ink #308....Just add "M"



Happy Friday friends!   We have a brand new challenge happening over at Just Add Ink and this week  Tina would like us to "JUST ADD M". With Mothers day not too far off in our part of the world it's perfect for creating your Mothers day cards or as l have done, add any "M" elements to your project.

For this weeks challenge l opted for these "M" elements "Markers-Mint Macaron-Melon Mambo-Mossy Meadow and Marina Mist" It was fun to pull out all the current "M" colours from Stampin Up and seeing what l could create...After applying my markers, l stamped off in varying amounts to create a much softer colour palette.

Don't forget to pop over and be inspired by the rest of the design teams creations..:0)

Stamp Review Crew...Balloon Celebrations Edition!



 Stamp Review Crew

Happy Monday everyone! We have another fun hop happening over at the Stamp Review Crew and this one is all about the "Balloon Celebration" bundle. I love how fun and easy to use this set is, so many cute elements and a punch as well.
I tried a new technique for this one, inking the solid image balloon in one colour and then stamping a second time in a deeper colour, but partially removing some of the ink by blotting with paper towel before stamping...In hindsight l probably could have gone even darker with the second shade, but l'm still happy with these and the 7yr old grandson seemed to think it was ok..:0)

You may have just arrived from the fabulous blog of Linda Callahan and her inspiring creations. But if you have just landed here and would like to start at the begining just click on the stamp review crew banner above and go from there.
