Just Add Ink #118.....

Good Morning from a very chilly Melbourne, time again for another Just Add Ink case a DT challenge and this week we are casing the lovely Mae Collins.
Scrolling through Mae's blog l had all kinds of dilemma's, there were so many beautiful cards and techniques, that narrowing it down to just one took me awhile.
I finally settled on this very "SWEET" card to case, mainly because l had not yet used my sweet treat cups purchased oh so long ago!
I really wanted to incorporate the new Twitterpated DSP and gorgeous Ridinghood Red pleated satin ribbon with the sweet treat cups, so the end result was a rather pink & girly interactive card.

I just had to add some Crystal effects to those gumballs from the "Something Sweet" set to make them nice and glossy!
The DT have done a beautiful job of casing Mae's gorgeous creations, head over to JAI and Mae's Cachet and be inspired, there is so much inspiration on both!

"Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!"

All products used are Stampin-Up.


  1. Nikki this is a sweet card, pun intended, and I love how you have made your gumballs glossy and fussy cut a few to give your card more depth. I am also glad that this challenge and my card encouraged you to use your sweet treat cups, they are fun to use! A great CASE of my card if do say so myself. Have a lovely weekend ♥

  2. Great design Nikki! The print & ribbon look fabulous teamed with the soft pink, & the glossy gumballs are lots of fun. Sweet card on all levels! :)

  3. Fabulous, Nikki! I love the colours you've used, and the glossy dots are perfect! I think this is the prettiest Sweet Treats card I have seen. :-)

  4. Oh-so-cute!! Love, love, love the colours on this card, and the paper looks fabulous. So lovely and feminine, and a great take on Mae's card, Nikki.

  5. Very cute card Nikki. The colours are fabulous together and I love the shiny gumballs too.

  6. Yummy ;) Sweet treat cards are fun to make and play with. Love the soft girly colour combo and those scattered glossy lollies!
