Just Add Ink #335 – Sketch

Just Add Ink Design Team

This week at Just Add Ink, we are creating using this great sketch by Tina.

Just Add Ink #335


Did I mention how much I love sketches???

I have used this one quite literally and created a sweet cupcake birthday card using some of my favourite colours.

Just Add Ink #335 - Sweet Cupcake Birthday. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.


It always amazes me how realistic and beautiful the 3-step stamping ends up being.

The icing is Sweet Sugarplum & Blushing Brie and the cupcake wrapper is Crumb Cake & Soft Suede.

I used ‘stamping off’ for the Sweet Sugarplum & Crumb Cake to achieve some colour variations.

And of course – I finished it all off with a liberal dose of clear wink of stella glitter!


Please join us this week & enter a card or project you’ve created using the JAI sketch.  You can find the link-up here.

You’ll also want to check out the rest of the design team creations – so much inspiration!  And that’s why I love sketch challenges!!!

Once my card was made, I wanted a little something to pop in the envelope to make it a birthday gift.  And that little something was a bookmark.

I like it when things are all matchy-matchy, so I kept with the Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride & Silver glimmer colour theme.  Plus the same Seaside embossing folder background, but I added the flower from the Sunshine Wishes thinlit set.

But no birthday sentiment on this one.  I masked out the ‘you’ on the stamp and just inked up ‘happiness’.  Punched it out with the Classic Label punch and snipped off the ends!

Sometimes it’s the little ‘hacks’ that makes for clever crafting.  Do you have a great tip – leave me a comment & share your genius!
