Just Add Ink #273.....Colour!

Welcome to this weeks Just Add Ink  challenge!  Rochelle has given us a stunning colour palette to play with and l had a lot of fun adding texture and dimension to my project, yet still keeping it fairly clean.
I used the yummy new embossing folder called "Boho Chic" and teamed it up with the "Crazy for You" stamp set.
The design team have created some really lovely projects with this weeks colours, so don't forget to pop over and check out the challenge blog!

Garden in Boom...Watermelon Wonder!

Morning all!...I just popped in to share a cheery floral creation made with the "Garden in Bloom & Happy Birthday Everyone" sets, hopefully this will brighten your gloomy day, if you live in Melbourne you'll get my drift..:0)

I stamped the blooms in "Watermelon Wonder" using 1st & 2nd generation inking and the leaves are in my go to foliage green of "Old Olive".

Watercolour Wings....

Happy Monday folks!...I hope you all enjoyed a lovely weekend and were a little warmer than chilly old Melbourne..11 degrees was just nasty!
While the theme over at Just Add Ink was all about Butterflies this week and the Stamp Review Crew were featuring Watercolour Wings, l thought l'd share another card l made recently in that theme.
The colours are Soft Sky & Night of Navy with a splash of gold to add some bling..:0)

Just Add Ink #272....Butterflies!

Hey there!....It's Friday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Just Add Ink.  Di wants us to "JUST ADD BUTTERFLIES"....It's such a simple and fun challenge.
The design team have used all manner of creative ways to add butterflies to their projects....Lot's of inspiration over on the challenge blog.
I went with a simple addition, using the "Bitty Butterfly" punch in solid black, l didn't want them to take over, but as it is a butterfly challenge, l wanted them to make an impact.

Stamp Review Crew: Watercolour Wings Edition

 Stamp Review Crew

Woohoo! & Yay!.....This is my first official DT blog hop with the "Stamp Review Crew"....Can you tell I'm just a little excited!
Way back in May, l received an email from Tanya asking if l would be interested in joining the amazing talent over at the Stamp Review Crew, needless to say she didn't have to ask twice..:0)
I was on holidays at the time so it took a little while to get my act together and join in with a blog hop....But this is it!

For those not familiar with "SRC" it's a blog hop created by Stampin Up demonstrators from all over the world and it happens on the first and third Mondays of each month and each one is dedicated to a specific stamp set from Stampin Up!
If you want to start at the beginning, just click on the badge up top and this will take you over to the "Stamp Review Crew" blog.
If you are happily hopping along, you would have arrived here from the lovely and uber talented Rochelle and her fabulous "Watercolour Wings" project.

I've opted to incorporate "Watercolour Wings" with some partial die cutting and on a sweet little tote made with the "Gift Bag Punch Board".

The colours I've used on both projects are Night of Navy, Soft Suede, Soft Sky, crumbcake/Kraft & Whisper White. I've also added some "English Garden" dsp and Gold thread for sparkle.

Here's the link to the "Tote Bag" tutorial l followed..:0) It's a great little tutorial by Claudia Maser.

Now you are off to be inspired by the talented Martha Inchley, click on the next blog banner and enjoy....

Just Add Ink #271....Sketch!

It's time to share another fun challenge over at Just Add Ink and this week Narelle has created a great sketch for us to play with.
The "Sprinkles of life" set was a must have on my wish list, although it's kinda cutesy and not normally my style, l just loved all of the elements and that it coordinates with the "Build a Tree" punch was the icing for me..:0)
I used "Soft Sky-Lost Lagoon-Pear Pizzazz &Watermelon Wonder" on my cupcake and used Blushing Bride and the eraser end of a pencil to add the polka dots.

The design team have provided some great ideas using the sketch, so pop over to the challenge blog and be inspired..:0)

Another Lovely as a Tree!

Take 2 with "Lovely as a Tree"....This one is stamped with "Always Artichoke" and "Wild Wasabi" and teamed with some dsp from the new In-colour stack in "Watermelon Wonder".
I added some crystal effects to my baubles as l felt they needed some shine...It worked and looks much better in real hard to photograph though!

Lovely as a Tree!

Morning bloggers!.....Just popping in to share another Christmas card I've made using my much neglected "Lovely As A Tree" set.
Our challenge over at Just add ink this week is to "Just Add Christmas" so while l was in the Christmas spirit, l thought l would have a play with the new in-colour called "Cucumber Crisp"....While I'm not a huge fan of this colour, l rather like it for trees when teamed with Lost Lagoon.

Just Add Ink #270....Inspiration Christmas in July!

It's time for another brand new Just Add Ink challenge and this we have some "Christmas in July" inspiration for you.
As a rule l generally steer clear of anything Christmas related until at least October, but this challenge has me already planning my Christmas theme for this years goodies and if time permits, l will be creating for the silly season from here on in..:0)
The "humbugs-Candy Canes & Lolly Pops" were what stood out for me, so l used some "Watermelon Wonder" dsp from the In-Colour stack and created a simple Christmas card that l can easily recreate en mass.

Don't forget to stop by the challenge blog and check out the fabulous array of Christmas inspiration from the design team.

Just Add Ink #269....Colour!

Yippee!...Friday has arrived at last and with the last couple of weeks being super busy, I'm beat..:0) Having arrived home from a lovely warm holiday with the man, l hit the ground running and it seems although I've achieved, I'm still at a jogging pace....But l am hoping to rectify the lack of inspirational fodder around here of late over the next few days..:0)

So, being Friday means it's also a brand new Just Add Ink challenge. Kim has provided a very nice colour combination for this one and as l arrived home to a lovely "BBB" (big brown box) from SU,
yep, l placed an order while on hols..:0)
l just couldn't miss a "New" catty release and as much as l was enjoying the sunshine & cocktails, l was suffering from "FOMO"..:0) But it meant l had some yummy new toy's to play with on my return and l didn't have to wait.
The "Build a Birthday" set was a must have on my wish list and l think it works well with this weeks colours.

The design team have created some gorgeous samples to give you some inspiration, so be sure to check them out..:0)
