Just Add Ink #252 Sketch Challenge – Happy Easter

This week at Just Add Ink its a sketch challenge.

image

I’ve been wanting to try this ‘on the angle’ look for a while, so thanks for the push JAI.

With Easter only a month away, I thought it was time to get started on inking up my Occasions Easter sets and using them to create a ‘Happy Easer’ creation. Isn’t the bunny cute? He was a little delicate to fussy cut, but worth the effort! Kelly x

Note: Blendabilities are currently unavailable for purchase, but will be back soon!

Product Update: Blendabilities go back to the drawing board

I made this card during the week with the plan to share it with you as part of my learning to love Blendablities journey.  And also to make a card that showcased products from the Annual Catalogue.  I feel like I’ve been neglecting it since Occasions & SAB came ontothe scene.

However, since making it and now, Stampin’ Up! has temporarily stopped selling Blendabilities markers while they investigate manufacturing quality issues.

I’m looking forward to new & improved Blendabilities – I’ll keep you updated.  In the meantime, there’s always Stampin’ Write Markers, watercoloring, Aqua Painters, Blender Pens … It’s time to fall in love with some new techniques.  Kelly x

Frozen Finale! Frozen Easel Card

It’s been a busy season of Frozen birthday parties.  I’ve come up with quite a few different Frozen designs over the past year – Sister Love, Elsa dress punch art, Anna dress punch art, Olaf punch art, Olaf shaker card

But there was one more Frozen card that needed making.  I’ve called on my Cameo for a little help to make this Frozen Easel Card.

Elsa, Anna & the ice castle are all downloads from the Silhouette design store.

This is what the card looks like when closed:

Whimsy Wedding – Cake Topper Bunting

image

It’s the middle of the wedding season and I was asked by my cousin, who is a cake designer in Bunbury, to create some wedding themed bunting for a wedding expo she was going to.

I made three different options for her to show her customers and reminded her that since everything I make is made from scratch, it is fully customiable!

That’s the wonderful thing about handmade – it’s created just for you.  Have a name with unusual spelling – no problems, want a specific saying – easy done, need it match your colour theme – totally possible!


image

Simple & elegant “Mr & Mrs” banner using the Pennant Builder Punch, Skinny Mini Alphabet & heart punch from Itty Bitty Accents.


image

Classic love birds with a kissing heart!  Made using the Bird Builder Punch, Your Perfect Day Stamp Set & heart from the Owl Builder Punch.


image

And the final one is my favourite – “Just Married” using the Tree punch, Little Letters Thinlits, and Linen Thread.  The ‘scrunchy’ flowers were made using the brown paper SU! use for packing orders, coloured with Bermuda Bay ink and cut with the 1-1/4″ scallop circle punch.

Weddings are special occasions and it’s a nice touch to be able to make something special just for the big event!  Kelly x

Lolly Jar: gifts are so much more wonderful in a jar!

When possible, I like to give something small but thoughtful to friends for their birthday.  And what’s more thoughtful than chocolate?!  Plus, everything is so much more wonderful in a jar.

image

Add a little Stampin’ Up! for decoration and the wonderful becomes perfect!  The jar took most of a bag of M&Ms and although I tried to resist the rest … I ended up eating them ALL! Whoops.

Crafting & chocolate is a match made in heaven.  Kelly x
