Just Add Ink #329

It’s been mighty busy over here at Papercraft HQ, and sooooo long since I’ve had the luxury of craft time for fun, but when I saw the photo inspiration over at Just Add Ink this week, I cleared some space and made sure to join the challenge.

Why???  Because it’s tulips – one of my absolute favourite flowers.

Ironically, my finished card features no tulips!  But it was what drew me in!

I used the colours from the photo inspiration, the theme of flowers and compact background pattern to create this….

The Sunshine Wishes & Sayings bundle is one of my favourites from the Annual Catalogue.  I’ve had so much use from it.

But, since I make so many birthday cards, {and not so many sunshine, hope & love cards}, it’s been on my mind how I can use the thinlits for birthday purposes.

In a moment of inspiration, I decided I’d use the ‘love’ thinlit to create a ‘birthday love’ card.

Of course, I could just have used the ‘happy’ with the birthday stamp instead of masking it out, but I love the font & style of the thinlits.


Did you spy the vellum feature {again}?  Vellum overlays are my current favourite trend.

{Note: It actually may not be a trend… I’m never on trend!}

I’m hoping to get back to regularly blogging soon!

I’ve got so many ideas and just not enough hours in the day!!!  Anyone got quick fix on the time issue????

  1. Go you! What a great alternative for those greetings Kel, love it! Lovely use of the inspiration, so creative and pretty. Thanks for sharing at JAI. Xx

  2. So totally sweet, Kelly. Haha I so relate to your post, I’m never on trend either, always behind but I do catch up eventually. Absolutely love your sentiment combo – I too make more birthday cards than anything else and I so love these thinlits, great share, thanks! x

  3. This is so pretty, Kelly. I love the embossed & watercoloured background & I’m with you on the vellum overlays. ‘If in doubt, add some vellum’ is my motto at the moment 😉 Glad you managed to play along at JAI again.
    Hugs, D
