Just Add Ink 551 #JAI551


Just Add Ink Challenge #551

This weeks challenge is Just add 3D

YIPPEEE!! 3D is my jam!!

I recently had a friends 40th and I made her this super, super special card. 
(She is a super, super special person)

What is special about this is that this card does fold flat for posting. 
The little bag/ purse in the middle can open up and you can place money or a gift voucher inside.

If you wish to make one for yourself I got the tutorial from fellow demo - Lou Kitzelman and it can be found here.

I will most definitely be making more it is such a clever card!

  • Stamps: Approaching Perfection (retired saleabration) and Butterfly Wishes
  • Ink: - Rococo Rose and Memento
  • Card: Basic White, Rococo Rose, Ombre Paper (retired saleabration) True Love DSP and Love You Always Specialty DSP

Colour INKspiration 97 #CI97


Welcome to Colour Inkspiration!

What is Colour INKspiraton? – a Facebook based bi-monthly colour challenge.
Anyone with Facebook can join in.  You don’t need a blog and you don’t need to be a demonstrator.
I have joined in these challenges and love them as Colour challenges for me are actually a real challenge.
 Click here to join the Facebook page which now has over 2300 members and see what it’s all about.

Here’s some of the basic details about the challenge –
The Colour INKspiration Crew! consists of a team of talented Aussie and NZ Stampin’ Up! ® Demonstrators that create projects based on Pinterest inspired colour swatches.
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a post on their blogs.
Then you have a 12 day period to upload your own creations using the colours provided.
If you have a blog, feel free to link back to it, but all entries will be via Facebook.  The design team will select 5 projects to be ‘design team picks’ and then the Facebook group will select an overall winner from this shortlist.

I wasn’t entirely happy with the end result but at least I made something which lately I just haven’t had the time. 

I can't wait to see what you come up with! 
Remember to upload your cards to our facebook group here!

  • Stamps: Pretty Perennials
  • Ink: Memento, Rococo Rose, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry
  • Card: Basic White, Basic Black, Rococo Rose and Silver Foil
  • Tools: Perennial Petals & Hippo and Friends Dies with a Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, Blending Brush and black pen 
  • Embellishments: - Dimensionals, Matt Black Dots

Such pretty pastel colours and added with the sketch from Just Add Ink I came up with this card.

  • Stamps: Friends are Like Seashells
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Card: Basic White, Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Seaside Spray and Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper
  • Tools: Seashells Embossing Folder and Stitched Shapes Dies with a Cut Stampin' Emboss Machine and White Embossing Powder with a Heat Tool
