Just Add Ink #512 | Sketch

Hello!  Thanks for joining us for a Just Add Ink challenge.  If you love the sketch we’re creating with today, you can share your project using the sketch with us at the Just Add Ink blog.  You’ll also find all the design team cards there too!

There was a crazy serendipity when I was planning out my card for this week’s challenge.  A jumper I bought online had the exact same layout as the sketch!!!  

So, with that as my inspiration for colour choices, I made this simple but cute card using the Tasteful Touches stamp set.

I really love feathers as an image in craft (not so much real life feathers – they gross me out a little!).

I’ve used two different embossing folders on the coloured panels – Subtle 3D (Night of Navy) & the new Tasteful Textile 3D (Pretty Peacock).

The sentiment is white heat embossed on Basic Gray cardstock and then snipped into individual words.  I love this effect with plain text words.

Sometimes the layout adds all the interest a card needs! 

I hope you find time this weekend to make some cards and that this sketch may be of some inspiration to you.  

 

Paper Adventures Team Hop | Inspired by Fashion

Paper Adventures - Blog Hop Header

Welcome to another Friday night and another Paper Adventures team hop.  You’re going to love this one – the theme is ‘Inspired by Fashion’ and we have the gorgeous Emma Goddard joining us.  There were quite a few happy dances done by the team when Emma said yes!

I can’t wait for you to see which direction everyone went in their fashion inspiration.  For me, fashion, home decor and marketing trends are a great source of inspiration.  Largely because Stampin’ Up! are always so great at being right on trend with their colours, stamps and accessories.

My card today is not the card I originally had in mind when I suggested this topic for our team hop.  I’m still hoping to make that card – because in my head, it’s awesome!

Instead, I’m sharing a card that I just had to make after seeing this cute design in the Big W catalogue.  For my international friends, Big W is like Target or ASDA.

Seen those flowers before somewhere?

They reminded me of the stamps in the Perennial Birthday stamp set!!!

This is the card I made using a panel inspired by the sleeping bag, offset with a Rectangle Stitched Framelit frame.

I love the blue and pink together.  I’ve used Blueberry Bushel, Night of Navy, Powder Pink and Blushing Bride.

All the stitched shapes help to elevate what would be a simple card into the next level.  I simply can’t craft without them now!!!

This is another layout that I’m storing away for future use.  It’s simple yet engaging and could be used with a stamped piece as I have here, or with a piece of DSP for a very quick & easy card!


Next up on our team hop is Anne Barker who shares her creations on Facebook.  I can’t wait for you to see her stylish project!!!

Thanks for hopping with us!
