Just Add Ink #193...

It's time to share this weeks "Inspiration" challenge over at Just Add Ink and as it's all about "Stars" what better stamp to use than the gorgeous "Christmas Star" from Stampin Up. I kept to a very simple colour palette of Midnight Muse, Silver & White and dug out various sizes of star punches.

Here's this weeks Inspiration pic.......

& Here's what l came up with, using the blue star as my inspiration...

The design team have created some great projects to help get you started, so don't forget to check them out!

Christmas Collection Baubles....

Over at Just Add Ink this week we have a colour challenge using this combination, you can see my design team submission in the post below and while I'm not sure they are Christmas appropriate, l thought l would give them a go on a Christmas card and this is the result....What do you think? I'm not convinced, but it was fun to try and l do like the idea of using the Mosaic Madness punch for the ends of the sentiment panel. (Another Pinterest Inspired idea).

Just Add Ink #192....

Happy Friday people!...I'm back and refreshed and ready to tackle the silly season. Where did l go you may ask? Well DH and l have been soaking up the sunshine and relaxing in Bali for the last 3 weeks....Bliss!
We had a lovely time catching up with friends and visiting the learning center in Northern Bali where we sponsor 3 beautiful kids and without a doubt, it is always the absolute highlight, yet, very humbling to visit and spend time with them and the staff.

So now it's time to share this weeks Just Add Ink Colour Challenge!

 I enjoyed making this Easel card, as it's been ages since l made one and l thought it would work well with the images in the Backyard Basics set and the colours seemed to work pretty well too!

The Design Team have created some gorgeous projects, so don't forget to pop over and check them out..:0)

Five Way Flower....

Afternoon Stampers!....Just popped in to share a second card made with this weeks Just Add Ink sketch! I loved the layout of this one and thought l'd ink up my pretty "Five Way Flower" and have another play with it.

It's pretty CAS and so cool that this stamp coordinates with all of the Stampin Up Scallop punches, it makes it really quick to make a card! I used a combination of Crisp Canteloupe & Calypso Coral, stamping off the first impression of each to create a graduation of colour.

Festive Flurry....Snowflake Ornament!

Good Morning!.....No doubt you have seen many variations of these pretty snowflakes around, but l thought l would still share mine with you anyway...:0)

It was fun and easy to make and they look so pretty in Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay and l have to say, really love that Stampin-Up have so many coordinating Stamp & Die bundles now, it makes creating so much easier.
Here's a couple of small projects in the same theme!....I just love coordinating packaging..:0)
