Hello! Today’s project is a design team card for the Just Add Ink Challenge. I’ve chosen a colour combination for the team to create with and I can’t wait to see what they – and you – do with it. Every JAI theme is a challenge which means we ask you to join in too. Add your project to the gallery on our blog (click here to visit) – your project could be the winner!
I had a totally different project in mind for this colour theme. Little Miss Papercraft turns 7 on the weekend and with a Frozen themed birthday party, this would have been perfect! I even preordered some delightfully snowy themed products from the upcoming Aug-Dec Mini Catalogue (aka the Holiday Catalogue), but sadly, they got held hostage by Australia Post and didn’t arrive in time.
So, instead, I have used the colours to create a cute birthday card using some of my favourite Annual Catalogue products.
The flowers on this card are from the Boho Indigo stamp set (part of the Boho Indigo Product Medley). This is a hidden gem of the Annual Catalogue and such a fun set to own! I used the coordinating dies in the kit to cut the feature flowers (Pool Party & Pretty Peacock) and the Vellum flourish.
The sentiment is from the Monogram Messages stamp set. I’m in love with the simplicity of this set. I cut the largest size of the stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies, stamped the “B” in Pretty Peacock, ‘is for’ in Smoky Slate and white heat embossed the ‘birthday’ on Pretty Peacock cardstock.
You could use this simple layout for just about any card and with the other stamps in the Monogram Messages stamp set, you could easily adapt the colours for any type of birthday, baby, hello or celebration card. There’s cute little picture stamps as well as the letters & words. Did I mention how much I love this stamp set?
Now it’s your turn to work your magic on these colours (or the closest colours you have in your stash if you don’t use Stampin’ Up! – a soft aqua, a deep teal and a light gray). Upload your project using the challenge colours and share it in our gallery.
Thanks for supporting the Just Add Ink challenge. We love having you share your talents with us each week!
