Just Add Ink #446 | Photo Inspiration

I can’t wait to see what entries we get this week for Just Add Ink – the photo inspiration is just gorgeous!!!

The colours and textures of this vibrant photo are sure to get the sparks of creativity flying!

The tiles on the wall reminded me of the Tin Tile Embossing Folder that carried over from the Holiday Catalogue.  If you’re ever curious which items from the Holiday Catalogue avoided the retirement list, you can see them all here in my online store.

I designed this card with my February classes in mind.  Each class I try to do one deluxe card – and after some Pinterest research, I came across this gorgeous fold by Barb Stamps (Barb Mullikin) called a Pull Out Side Pocket Card.  You can see Barb’s blog post & video by clicking here.

The card is standard size with a right entry pocket flap for a writing panel.  You could also use the flap for tucking away other things like a gift card or voucher!

Barb is in the US so I slightly adjusted the cardstock sizes to match the C6 size cards we use in Australia.  Card base is 7-3/8″ x 6-7/8″, scored at 4-1/8″ on the long side and 1/2″ from each edge on the short side.

The mat on the front of the card and the cardstock for the pocket insert are both 3″ x 5-5/8″.

Although I love the white wash tiles in the photo, I wanted to try adding Versamark to the embossing folder before I made the imprint on my cardstock and then coating with copper embossing powder for an oxidised copper effect with the teal (Bermuda Bay) peeking through.

The flowers in the vase are from a new stamp set in the Occasions catalogue. They fit the existing Vases Builder Punch – which is a bonus if you already have this!

I’ve stamped the flowers in Lovely Lipstick on Shimmery White and then used an Aqua Painter to add more Lovely Lipstick & Mango Melody ink – just like in the inspiration photo.  The vases are heat embossed in copper and coloured with Bermuda Bay ink.

I can see this style of card being a favourite for when I need something a bit fancier!!!
