Just Add Ink #547...Inspiration!


Good Morning everyone!

Its Just Add Ink challenge time and this week Kim has given us this lovely Easter inspiration. Although its Easter, you can see by the design team projects if you click on the link, that it really is any theme using the inspiration as a starting point.

I decided to go Easter and create some cute packaging, although the butterfly one could be any occasion.
For that one l have used the sweet Butterfly Bouquet" dsp (sold out) and for the other, the "Kangaroo & Company" stamp set and created in Just Jade and coloured with Stampin Blends in Gray Granite.

These little gift boxes/bags are a decent size and only use 2x6"x6" cardstock or DSP for the main base. I came across this cute design by Heidi in the UK and had to have a go at making one...well, so far l'm up to 6 l think. I will be using these for my little people for Easter gifts, filling them with some winter socks, Easter eggs and a movie voucher, they are the perfect size!

Magnet closures are not Stampin Up! These were purchased on Ebay.

This week over at Colour INKspiration Leonie has given us this very pretty combination to create with.

It's such a happy colour palette and as l had a thank you card to send, it was perfect for cracking open my Pierced Blooms dies to create with...Its pretty clean and was very simple and quick to put together...kind of a floating frame effect.

Just Add Ink #546..."Steampunk"


This week over at Just Add Ink Chantell has given us a fun and very different challenge. She would like us to create using the theme of "Steampunk"....This is not a style l'm usually drawn to, but it was fun to pull out some old bits and create my take on steampunk.

If you scroll to the bottom, l have included some pics of what l have used, old & new from Stampin Up! and l have included an image (car) from a really old Tim Holtz set called "The Journey".

I have kept to a neutral colour palette of Basic black, Basic White, Crumbcake & Kraft, with a gold embossed sentiment from "Whiskey Business".

The rest of the design team have had fun with this theme, so don't forget to click on the link and have a look at those.

Stamp Review Crew...Tasteful Touches!


Good Morning!

The Stamp Review Crew are hopping and for this one we are sharing the lovely "Tasteful Touches" stamp set. This set is so lovely to work with and some very versatile images that can be used for many card styles.

I have used my blending brushes to create a soft Pear Pizzazz background and stamped some of the leaf and geometric images on top.
My flowers are coloured with Highland Heather-Purple Posy & mango melody Stampin Blends and the leaves are from the "To a Wild Rose" set coloured with Old Olive blends.
To create the shadow, l ran my light Smoky Slate blend around the flower and leaf images to add some depth and then added some speckles in Memento ink, finishing off with a sentiment & diecut from the Well Said bundle.

If you are happily hopping, you would have arrived here from the fabulously creative Mike Funke  and l'm sure he had something fabulous to share! 
But if you've just landed here, you can follow the hop and see all of the wonderful crew projects by clicking the link above or "Next" banner below.
Stamp Review Crew are a wonderfully talented group of Stampin Up! demonstrators from across the globe that come together twice a month to share lots of fabulous ideas using Stampin Up! products.

Next up is my very talented and oh so creative friend from down under Bronwyn Eastley and l'm sure she will have a "Wow" project for you!

Just Add Ink #545...Colour!


Morning all!

This weeks challenge over at Just Add Ink was suggested by Lou and its a fun one! You can create anything you like, as long as its in "Shades of Green".

I've used a few shades, Soft Seafoam-Pear Pizzazz-Old Olive-Mossy Meadow and teamed them with the Stitched Rectangles, my retired Rainbow Dies and some foliage from the Forever Fern dies.

I went with a St Pats day theme and created a birthday card for an Irish friend...Very Simple, but l like it!

The rest of the design team have some fabulously "GREEN" inspiration to share, so make sure you click on the link above for a peek at those.
