Just Add Ink #338...Inspiration!

JAI #339...Insp.

Happy Friday everyone! 

Jan has given us some fun and colourful inspiration for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. 

I have used the fun "Totally Trees" stamp set in Bermuda Bay-Tempting Turquoise-Pacific Point & Real Red to create a non greeting specific card that could be used for many occasions.
The images in this set are really cute and allow for heaps of it!

The rest of the design team have come up with some very inspiring projects, so pop over and take a peek at those.

Stamp Review Crew..."Picture Perfect Edition"

 Stamp Review Crew

Welcome to the "Picture Perfect" edition of Stamp Review Crew.

I really love this set, but to be honest l have rarely used any of the images other than the rose & leaves....So my plan was to create at least one sample for this hop using the lovely and detailed starfish to create a non specific card.
I used Soft Suede and Crumbcake with whisper White and added texture with some retired SU Jute ribbon.
Although you cant really see it in the pic, l have added a generous speckle of the Gold wink of stella and some Gold twine to give it a lift. It's so sparkly IRL.

For this first card l used generational layers of Blushing Bride, Crisp Cantaloupe & Flirty Flamingo and for the leaves l used Pear Pizzazz, stamping off for the layers.
The flowers received a generous coating of Wink of Stella.

Just Add Ink #336...Colour!

Hello!....Well l'm back from a whirlwind few days in Brisbane for Stampin Up's On-Stage live event and to say l'm just a little excited, overwhelmed and sooo tired is an understatement..:0)
It was a fabulous and fun way to spend a few days with some lovely friends. But reality has kicked in and the struggle is real...time to get creating!

Our challenge over at Just Add Ink  this week is all about these pretty colours!  During "Onstage" l received the brand new "Swan Lake" stamp set in prize patrol. And although this is definitely not a set l would normally choose, l thought l would step outside my comfort zone and see if l could come up with something l liked...:0)

I stamped, water coloured and sponged all images on some SU Shimmer c/stock and used the fab "New" stitched framelits to create the oval.
The sentiment is from another "New" stamp set that we were lucky enough to receive in our check in bags, called "Suite Sentiments"...Loving the versatile sentiments in this set.

Both of these sets will be available in the Occasions catalogue on the 4th of January 2017 and will coincide with the release of the fab new Sab products as well.

Not that it photographed all that well, but there is a whole lot of Wink of Stella sparkle happening too!

I also have another card l made using these colours, to which l have added a "Neutral" Crumbcake, which we do allow in our colour challenges by the way..:0)

Don't forget to swing by the challenge blog for some more fab inspiration from the design team.

Stamp Review Crew..."Paisley's & Posies Edition"

 Stamp Review Crew

Yay! I'm excited to be joining this hop at Stamp Review Crew...It's been a whole month since l participated, so l was really looking forward to this one..:0)

For this hop we are showcasing the lovely "Paisleys & Petals" set. I really enjoyed creating three very different samples to share.

If you are following along the hop, you would have just arrived from fab blog of Bruno Bertucci But if you have just landed here and would like to start at the beginning you can click on the banner up top to be redirected or you can continue on your merry way by clicking the "Next" banner below!

For my first sample, l've gone with the current fad of line art colouring books...although clearly this is not a
This idea would be lots of fun made in multiples and gifted with some colouring pencils or markers.

For the second sample, l have used Wisteria wonder, baked Brown sugar/Kraft and gold embossing to create a more classic paisley look.

And last but not least, my third sample uses the yummy Copper embossing powder, Mint Macaron and Dapper Denim.

Now you are off to inspired by the lovely and talented Tanya Boser

I have been asked for details on my second card, so thought l would add them here for anyone else that's interested...

Whisper White panel: 3.5/8" x 4.7/8"
Kraft panel: 3.6/8" x 5"

Place both panels together, keeping the lefthand side and the bottoms level. (The Kraft one should be peeking out at the top & right sides)
Place on your cutter with the bottom left point on the cutting line and push the rest of the panels (keeping them together) past that point, to remove required amount. This is totally your choice.
Now line up the left side and top together and this will give you even amounts of Kraft peeking out on the bottom and right sides.

Star of Light!

Hey there...Thought l would pop in and share just for fun!

As l'm making a concerted effort to get a good stock of Christmas cards created before the crazy hits, l've added "Ombre"  water colouring with some yummy Emerald Envy" ink on a piece of watercolour paper and teamed it with some of the pretty star diecuts from the "Star of Light" set.
Not sure if you can see it, but l also added an Ombre effect to those to tie it altogether!

I'll keep it short and sweet! At present l am enjoying a few days away in Brisbane with some of my fave people...The Just Add Ink girls of course..:0)
We are attending the first south Pacific Stampin Up "On Stage Live" event...So excited! Not only do we get to see, feel and enjoy all things new in the SU world, we get to hang out together and just enjoy the laughter, hugs and non cyber quality time!
