Hey there! Thanks for joining me for tonight’s Just Add Ink challenge.
This week we’re all creating to Patrice’s awesome sketch.
Sketches are one of my favourite challenge types because I love all the different directions it takes the design team. I’m usually very literal in sketch interpretation (and this week is no different). I get blown away by the creativity of the design team and how they use the sketch.
Of all my new catalogue items, I keep going back to the Animal Outing & Animal Friends bundle. The characters are cute & quirky and they make for great universal cards. My greatest Stampin’ Up! wish would be for a ‘happy birthday’ stamp in each set – but I have lots of choices for mixing & matching!!!
The DSP in this card is also from the Animal Expedition suite. It’s part of the buy 3, get 1 free promotion in July and I will be stocking up!!! Read all the details here.
I’ve been desperate to use the gorgeous giraffe print die since getting these framelits – how amazing does it look layered on a card!! The framelits are very useful – they cut out all the animals in the set (which I remembered after I fussy cut the frog/tree!!) and have extra pieces like the giraffe pattern to add interesting features to your projects.
The giraffe and frog have been quickly coloured using Stampin’ Blends. I’m not a natural with colouring (and I don’t worry about being perfect). I love how easy Stampin’ Blends are to use. I’ve got the 11 new colours on their way to me. Looking forward to some more colour options – especially greens!!! See more info here.
It would be great to have you join in with our sketch challenge. You’ll find entry over on the Just Add Ink blog, along with the awesome design team cards for the week.
Happy stamping over the weekend – the forecast in my house is perfect for stamping in my pjs!!!
