Just Add Ink #397...Just Add "H"

Happy Friday to you!

This week l have created two projects using "H" elements suggested by Tina for our Just Add Ink challenge. For my first one l have used the lovely "Heartfelt Blooms" sale a bration stamp and stamped it in Memento black and coloured it with stampin Blends, no shading etc, just block fun and easy!
I've also added the "Eclipse" technique to give it some dimension by die cutting the word "HUGS" (my "H" element) using the Large Letter thinlits.

For my second project l was inspired to create this fun fold project after seeing this fun idea from the amazingly talented Jay Soriano, if you have time, check out his!
The colours on this one were dictated by the "Picture Perfect Party" dsp and my "H" element is the party "Horns".
The colours are Pool Party/Bermuda Bay-LLT/Old Olive-Berry Burst/Second generation Berry Burst-Basic Black.

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and see all of the fun "H" inspiration from the team.

Just Add Ink #396...Sketch!

Happy Friday everyone! 

We have a fab new sketch challenge from Kim, over at Just add Ink and l decided it was the perfect time to have another play with my "Magical Day" stamp set.
So cute and fun to play with and having the coordinating thinlits is a huge bonus. I've gone bright and colourful using Melon Mambo-Pumpkin pie-Daffodil Delight-Lemon Lime Twist-Tempting Turquoise-Emerald Envy.
This was a really quick and fun card to create and l have the perfect little miss turning 5 soon and I'm sure she will be pretty happy to have a unicorn on her card....I have a sparkly #5 ready to attach, but decided to leave it as it didn't fit with the sketch so much.

The rest of the design team have created some amazing projects, so don't forget to stop by the challenge blog for heaps of inspiration.

Lots of pretty inspiration over on the blog, so make sure you pop over and take a peek!

Just Add Ink #394...Romance!

Just Add Ink

Yay for Friday! That means its Just Add Ink challenge time and this week l thought it would be fun to add some "Romance" to our projects.
With Valentines day on the horizon (not that I'm big on that) l thought a fun card for the man would be in order. Mind you, if you want to play along, you can create any form of romantic project...Pretty much as long as you add some feels, you will nail it!

I've used the very cute and fun "Magical Day" stamp set that we received at "Onstage" back in November and decided it was time to show it some love. The greeting is from the retired "Everyday Hero" set.
I was recently gifted some watercolour paints and decided to try those on watercolour paper for the images....Lots of Wink of Stella on the Dragon and a hint of glimmer as well.

Heaps of lovey stuff happening on the blog, so pop on over and check out the rest of the design teams projects!

Stamp Review Crew...Bonus Blog Hop-SAB 2018

 Stamp Review Crew

It's Stamp Review Crew time again and for this hop we are showcasing lots of the fabulous "Sale a Bration" sets on offer.
When l attended "Onstage" in Melbourne last November we got to see these products and the one set that really had me doing a happy dance was the super cute "Party Pandas" set...So that was my choice for this SAB hop.
So many ideas and fun ways to use this set, it actually took me awhile to come up with something different from what is already floating around online.
Having lots of little people with birthdays coming up, that was my theme and will hopefully get me a little ahead this year!
The colours l have used are Bermuda Bay-Lemon Lime Twist-Peekaboo Peach-Berry Burst & Pool Party. These were dictated by the colours in the gorgeous "Picture Perfect Party" DSP, this 6" x 6" stack is loaded with heaps of fun party images.

If you would like to see all of the crews projects, just click on the "Next" link to continue on. If you are already happily hopping, you would have landed here from the always lovely and oh so talented Ann Schach.

Now you are off hopping to the fabulous Dawn Tidd and her no doubt inspiring project!

Just Add Ink #393....Colour!

Happy Australia day Aussie friends! What's everyone up to today to celebrate our nations special day?
We will be celebrating my sons birthday. Being an Australia day baby means he always gets a day off and its just a tad more festive than a normal day.
On to this weeks Just add Ink challenge! Well aren't these colours a bit appropriate for today....not exactly "Green & Gold" but if you squint, l think they pass as another "Australia Day" tribute!
Rochelle has chosen the colours for this week and they work perfectly for a masculine birthday card!

I have combined a couple of dsp packs, Delightful Daisy & Eastern Palace and used the fun new punch from the Truly Tailored Bundle and the aptly named Celebrate You "Sale a bration" thinlits. I've also added a couple of the cute Tutti Frutti adhesive sequins (well the two lemon lime twist ones).

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of the teams creations!
