Happy New Catalogue Day! If you need more details and to see my top 10 list- see my post from this morning.
Tonight I’m sharing a card I made using the Just Add Ink Challenge Colours and some of the products from the 2017-2018 that are no longer upcoming, but here!!!
I, and I’m imaging many other crafters, will admit to these colours being out of my comfort zone. Orange isn’t on high rotation for me – and with aqua/teal/blue…. I had to dig deep!
But they call it a challenge – yes?
I had fun putting my new products together.
This card is made using the Daisy Delight bundle (stamp set & punch) with the Eastern Medallions Thinlits.
The daisy is layered 3 times for lots of texture. I stamped each daisy on Whisper White cardstock in Peekaboo Peach, coloured it with more Peach ink using my Aqua Painter and then cut each daisy out.
Don’t forget when mounting your daisy stamp, that you want to have petals pointing straight up & down (ie, 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock). Stamp this way onto your cardstock and it will make it lining up the punch a breeze!
When putting the daisy layers together, space so that petal takes up a third of the gap between the petals (12 o’clock, 4 o’ clock, 8 o’clock).
If you try to put it in the middle (at 6 o’clock), the third daisy will sit behind the first.
How cute is that medallion as a backdrop? The Eastern Palace Suite was available during May as a pre-release but only in a bundle. You can now buy each products from the suite individually.
I highly recommend you add the Eastern Medallion Thinlits to you collection!
I carried the theme through to the inside of the card…
Make sure to visit the Just Add Ink blog where you can see the cards made by the design team.
Hopefully this will inspire you to add your own entry. We’d love to see what you make!
There seems to be a common theme with the design team creations this week. Can you guess what it is???
