JAI 228 Colour Challenge

This week we have this colour challenge courtesy of Kim ..Kim, you really challenged me with this one!

JAI201buttons009

I actually did two projects for this colour combo ..but for one, I hated the first  project and two, I left the card (and all of my stuff..including the ink pads I needed) at Paulas’ place last weekend! Not a great start!

Anyway, despite the lack of ink pads, I managed to come up with a box and mini card. IMG_0948-001 IMG_0949-002 IMG_0950-002

I made the box out of the Park Lane DSP and using our new Box maker (Holiday Catalogue)! Its very easy to use! The tag is showing a new punch we have called the Note Tag Punch..This comes with matching stamps but also fits a lot of other current stamps too. The button..was vanilla and I coloured it with a calypso coral blendability..

So I hope you can play along this week..check out the varied and gorgeous projects the other Design Team have made for this challenge..check that out here

Have a great weekend everyone!

JAI 227 -Just Add Chipboard

This week at JAI, Our challenge is from Chantell and it is to include chipboard.

I don’t know if you know this about me but I love Chipboard! I covet and collect chipboard …and have been doing so for 10 years now.I do use it but most of it is non SU.

I especially love to make my own chipboard pieces so I was sooo happy when Stampin’ Up! released their coaster board as up until then I was using the DSP backing and the specialty paper backings for my chipboard. Coaster board is easy to use and you can cut with your thinlets/framelits/XL dies and even on some electronic cutters  too.

Ive been Project Life ing this week ..my chipboard pieces are the bow (which is coming up in our upcoming Holiday Catalogue, the heart (from the hamburger box die) and I have also used some coaster board behind the starburst framelit die in the title.

JAI 220 Sketch Challenge

oops its Friday so Im late getting this post up ..days just run away from me sometimes!

This week at Just Add Ink we have a sketch challenge courtesy of Kim ..here it is

JAISketch003It immediately said ‘Gift bag’ to me when I first saw the sketch, so, this is what I came up with using some new Products coming our way on the 1st July. This paper is called Lullaby.

IMG_6872-001I had some of leftover artwork from this card so I whipped up a tag using some Project Life bits and pieces (washi, the best sticker, acetate arrows all from the Everyday Adventure Accessories kit), the stamps I used were PL Day to Day, Hello There (hostess set), Love Lace background stamp and Hip notes. I used the new thick bakers twine for my bag closure and coloured my pearl with a Coastal Cabana Blendibility marker.

Glimmer paper, ribbon and dazzling details all in silver completed my project.

JAI #219 Inspiration Challenge

This week at Just Add Ink, we have a wonderful Inspiration Challenge for you courtesy of Trish..check out what the other Design Team have come up with here.

Here’s the challenge photo.

JAI #219

Here’s what I did for this challenge..I thought masculine for this card.

IMG_6870-001I’ve used three different stamp sets for this card..oops ..normally limit it but couldn’t help it !!!  The Work of Art stamp (stripes) set is quite varied and I’m loving the inspiration so far seen on blogs using this set.  I also used the Something to Say Stamp set for the stars and the greeting. Love lots of the sentiments in this set and it also has a mini punch set for the stars, flower and heart.  My fave stamp set at the moment is the Amazing Birthday stamp set ..yep its all about Birthdays but it rocks lol.

I’ve used the matching banner framelits to add a feature to one side.

HOPE you all come and play with us this week but if not then to at least get some inspiration!

Have a good weekend!
