Just Add Ink #180...

Good morning!....It's time to share our challenge for this week over at Just Add Ink and that is to "Just Add Colouring"  Now that can be using Pencils, Markers, Crayons or whatever your favourite colouring medium may be!
I added colouring by using my blender pen and markers scribbled on acetate. I embossed the gorgeous Poinsettia from Stampin-Ups Joyous Christmas, using Cherry Cobbler E/P on Real Red card stock and shaded using my Cherry Cobbler marker and blender pen. The leaves were embossed with Gold E/P on Pear Pizzazz card stock and shaded with Old Olive.

Don't forget to pop over and check out the design team's gorgeous projects for inspiration.

Traditional Festive Flurry....

I thought l would use the Festive Flurry Framelits with Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations for this one and love the look and velvety feel of that snowflake, once it was embossed. I kept this one "VERY" simple, keeping the snowflake as the focus and not fussing to much with the rest, making it super quick to put together and perfect for a mass produced card.
Once again l used the "Season of Style" dsp and picked out the colours to coordinate........

Holiday Sneak Peeks.....

Don't you just love a "New Catty" or even more, the contents...:0) I must say the Stampin Up Holiday Catalogue is always a highlight for me....drool! I love all things Christmas and there are so many lovely Christmas and Holiday goodies in this one, that I'm thoroughly enjoying my playtime at the minute....So l thought l would share one of the cards I've created with some of them...well, lot's actually! I don't think l could possibly have added anything else...:0)

A rather more traditional colour combination on this one, but I'm loving the colours in the "Seasons of Style" DSP pack and love how they look paired up with the Christmas Collectibles Ornaments. 
All of these products are available from tomorrow and if you would like to see more projects, pop back later to see what else I've been playing with.

Flower Shop & Polka Dot's...

I've been having a little play with SU's "Flower Shop" stamp and punch set and needed to make a card for a special friend...I do hope she has it by now...:0) I teamed it with Strawberry Slush & Polka Dot's so l could play along with this weeks "Friday Mashup" challenge, but have held off on the linking as long as possible in the hope she get's it first.
Anyhoo!'s the challenge and my card.

Not sure why the front looks so orange, but it is definitely Strawberry Slush. I used my Markers & Blender pen to colour the flowers and yay! for the coordinating Pansy punch..:0) It certainly makes life easier.

Zoo Babies for the boy's...

So, l'm back with one for the "Boy's". This one uses Coastal Cabana, Basic Grey & these cool modern colours for baby boy's and how cute is that "Toucan" ?

I'm so happy with how easy this set is to use, thinking l might just have a play with some "Brights" and see what can come up with.

Just Add Ink #176...

It's Just Add Ink time again and our challenge for this week is "Just Add Blokes"...very Aussie huh! Well, actually it means you can add any age male, using any sentiment, be it birthday, baby, fathers day rules to this one, as long as it's blokey..:0)

So, l'm not really sure how blokey some will think this is, but it did pass the male scrutiny test with the men in my family, so that's good enough for me...They were rather impressed with the hand cut feathers and didn't seem to think the sequins made it too girly.
The Design Team have created some great masculine themed cards to inspire you, so don't forget to swing by the challenge blog and have a look.
