Just Add Ink #400....Celebrations and Inspiration!

 Just Add Ink

Happy Friday to you! We have a big milestone celebration happening this week, "JUST ADD INK" challenges are turning 400!  Check out the JAI blog post for all the details on how we are celebrating!

It is an incredible achievement and one that l am truly thankful to be a part of. I have been creating for the design team for 7 years now, almost exactly to the day too! I absolutely love these talented ladies, past and present and the team spirit and friendship is truly a lovely environment to create in.
Congrats to everyone involved in keeping Just Add Ink a fun, fabulous and creative challenge!

Ok, so onto our 400th challenge at Just Add Ink and Kim has given us this sweet "Easter" inspo to play with!
I have combined the "Lots of Lovely" framelit box and the gorgeous SAB "Basket of Blossoms" bundle, along with the bunny from the "We must Celebrate" set to create some cute Easter packaging.

To alter the size of the box, l cut two pieces of 4-1/4" x 5" kraft cardstock and cut placing the curved flap of the framelit across the top 4-1/4" width (this is the exact framelit width) and used the 5" length to determine the box length.

The first "Blossom Basket" image was coloured using Stampin Up! Blends and the second was coloured using Bic markers. Both were popped up on Ovals cut with the "Stitched Shapes" framelits.

And just for something a little different, l thought l would share my super cute "Cacti Bunny"
I bought this cutie at a market early in the New Year and originally it was just the main piece and the little waving arm "Hola" and just in time for Easter, it now resembles a waving bunny...Well to me anyway!

The rest of the design team have created some gorgeous projects, so don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog to see those.

Thanks for stopping by
All supplies used are Stampin Up!
