Just Add Ink #552...Inspiration!


Photo Credit:

Good Morning everyone!

Our challenge this week over at  Just Add Ink is some pretty inspiration and l just love the yellow roses and that gorgeous yellow door!
So with those being the elements that caught my eye, l thought it was perfect timing to crack open my brand new "Hand Penned" bundle, available on the 4th of May and combined it with another new product, the "Ombre gift bags" in our gorgeous new In Colours, to create some sweet gift bag thank you projects!

The Pale Papaya gift bag was coloured using Stampin Blends and the Evening Evergreen one was using the coordinating stamp images and inkpads.
I do love a set that offers multiple colouring options, as it can be used to relax and colour or quick and easy stamping to produce a similar effect.

The rest of the design team have created lots of stunning projects, so make sure you click the link above and have a peek at those and if you are inspired, come and join us, by sharing your projects in the JAI gallery.

Colour INKspiration...#98


Evening all!

It is time for a new Colour INKspiration challenge and this lovely challenge combination of colours is from Jan...They are such a pretty palette and were so easy to create with.

I decided to give my "Handrawn Blooms" a run. Very happy to see this lovely set carry over. The line art images are so fine and dainty and are a pleasure to colour using my Stampin Blends in the challenge colours and a Pear Pizazz marker. I have also added some extra detail to the pot from the "Simply Succulents" set using the fine tip of my Basic Black marker.

Just Add Ink #551...3D



It's Just Add Ink  new challenge day and this week Rachael has challenged us to create a 3D project and l have to say this is one of my fave things to create!

I actually have 2 projects to share, one being some cute packaging and the other a decor piece.

My mini artwork uses Stampin Blends & Isopropyl Alcohol on vellum with some Gilded Leafing. I am in love with this simple technique and will definitely be adding some panels to my this space!

The colours of Stampin Blends on this one are Dark Basic Black-Dark Old Olive-Dark Soft Suede. I wanted to keep it earthy to match my decor, as l have the perfect spot to display it.

My second project:

As l'm trying to use up some of my always enlarging DSP stash, l decided to create a giftbox using the lovely SAB DSP "Flower & Field" and combined it with my Daisy & Leaf (retired) punches.

This is such a great size giftbox, it uses a 12"x12" piece of cardstock to begin with and was very simple to create. I came across this excellent step by step tutorial from Susan and thought it was perfect for creating this weeks Just Add Ink challenge project.

As you can see by this next pic, in comparison to our SU inkpads, its a great size!

As my Sweet Strawberry bundle is still new to me, l decided to ink it up and create a “Sweet” birthday card with this weeks colours, as they looked like the perfect combo for a strawberry creation to me...Sweet and simple in style and that greeting just makes me smile.

Just Add Ink #549...Choose Two!


Happy Friday Friends!

Over at  Just Add Ink   Kelly has challenged us to add two of the options to our projects and as l couldn't decide, l made two projects using a combination of "Petals & Leaves" on the pink one and "Petals & Feathers on the green.

I recently had a lovely catchup with one of my friends and class ladies and she had set the theme of "Gatefolds" to decorate as l chose, putting out all sorts of bits and pieces to colour, diecut and fussy cut. It was so lovely not to be the one setting the projects and it was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon...Thanks Rob!

This one uses the retired SAB "Paper Blooms" dsp & the "A Touch of Ink" stamp set, coloured with Rococo Rose-Old Olive-Seaside Spray blends.

And this one uses the SAB "Berry Delightful" dsp "A Touch of Ink & Berry Blessings" stamp sets.
Coloured with Shaded Spruce-Poppy Parade-Granny Apple Green blends.
