Just Add Ink Challenge

You are the greatest

The new Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalogue has lots of gorgeous stamp sets to choose from and one of my favourites as soon as I saw it was the ‘Tropical Chic’ stamp set, coordinating papers & dies. I finally made some time to play with these gorgeous goodies and have created some cards to share with you all.

I noticed Just Add Ink had a sketch challenge this week and I thought Tropical Chic would fit perfectly.

Here’s what I came up with,

and here’s the Sketch provided.

I’ve also finished off the inside of the card with some of the designer series paper I’ve used on the front.

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Tropical Chic
Papers: Tropical Escape
Card: Whisper White, Blushing Bride
Ink: Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green, Blushing Bride, Memento Tuxedo Black
Punches & Dies: Tropical Thinlits
Accessories: Metallic Pearls

I’m entering this card into the following Challenges:

Just Add Ink – #421 Sketch

Imagine…..

This week over at Just Add Ink they have an Inspiration challenge, JAI #63, and here’s what they gave us for the inspiration.

That’s a fun looking photo with lots of bright colour.

The colours I decided to pull from this photo were Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Black.

I decided to layer my colours in a similar fashion to how they appear in the photo and I’ve added a red flower with a yellow centre to resemble the flower petals around their necks.

This card is actually a lot brighter in real life. This photo makes the Daffodil Delight look more like So Saffron but it’s not.

Supplies:
Stamp sets: Word Play
Card: Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Brights Pattern Stack (Real Red)
Ink: Stazon Jet Black
Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Crimper, Brights Buttons (Daffodil Delight), Birds & Blooms Sizzlits die, Crochet Thread & needle (non-SU)

Till next time…..

 

Thanks

I’ve had a busy few days with not much time for creating although I’m not sure my ‘mojo’ is fully back as yet from that break I had anyway. Hopefully my mojo will fully return and I”ll get back to more regular posting soon.

I have managed to sit down this morning and create one card which is for 2 challenges this week.

First up is the Colour Challenge #25 from Rubber Redneck.

Color Round Up # 25

Next is the Sketch Challenge #59 over at Just Add Ink.

I always seem to struggle when using Pacific Point. It’s not that I don’t like the colour, it’s just that I find it very bright. With that said I’m happy with my end result with just little bits of Pacific Point showing through.

I have used the Pacific Point as my base card and layers. To this I’ve added some Peach Parfait Patterns DSP along with some Melon Mambo Patterns DSP and tied some Old Olive Taffeta ribbon around.

The main images are from the Level 2 Hostess set – Apple Blossom. The sentiment is from the stamp set – Taking Care of Business. I’ve also added a small rhinestone to the flower for a bit of sparkly but it doesn’t show up real well in this photo.

This card will be heading to one of the lovely ladies who has already placed an order to help me reach my sales goal for the end of the month. She’s also in the draw to WIN a FREE BIG SHOT. There is still time to place your order and be in the running and you don’t have to be a regular customer (nor do you need to become a regular customer of mine) to be eligible, you just need to live in Australia. To find out more, check out this post.

I hope to be back later with some more creations so till then……
