Just Add Ink #359 – Inspiration

Did you know that the Just Add Ink challenge site cycles through lots of different types of inspiration… themes, letters, photos are just  few.

This week we have a gorgeous inspiration photo chosen by  Kim.

Image may contain: flower and text

What a gorgeous picture!  Perfect for flowers & pink tones – favourites of many crafters!

I had the pleasure at a recent craft weekend I went on to borrow the Falling Flowers bundle.

It’s been on my radar, but not in my shopping cart, for a while now, so it was a pleasure to be able to use it.

Making this card just made me want to own it even more… so guess what will soon make the transition from wishlist to stash very soon???

The most striking thing about the inspiration photo for me was the beautiful colours and striking resemblance to the new Berry Burst In Colour.

I wanted to take that bright pink, add in a bit of green and display it all on a crisp white background.

I love the simplicity of this card, but couldn’t help add a little bling thanks to a product we’ll all be able to enjoy soon – Glitter Enamel Dots!  They are divine!

{Can’t wait til June to add Glitter Dots to your collection?  Join my Paper Adventures team in May and you can add them – plus other great new catalogue products – to your Starter Kit}.

The sentiment in this card – nice & generic, this is an all-occasions card – is from the very versatile Beautiful You stamp set.

I can’t wait for you to see what the other design team members were inspired to create.  See all the cards on the Just Add Ink blog.

And I am even more excited to see what you create!  Upload your creation by visiting the blog.

Just Add Ink #349 Photo Inspiration

Just Add Ink Design Team

It’s been a quiet week on the blog for me – after a huge week last week!

Take a breath with me – I’ve been prepping for another mega week of projects!!!

March is the final month of Sale-A-Bration, so be sure to get in touch with me if I can help you to order anything {yep, total enabler over here!}.


Thanks for joining me today for another week of Just Add Ink with this fabulous photo inspiration chosen by Patrice.

No automatic alt text available.

You’re sure to see lots of colour from the design team this week.

I know it was the bright colours that inspired me to ink up my new Happy Celebrations stamp set and use my ‘debossing’ folders for the first time.

The folder create a negative impression which enable you to stamp over the top and keep the white space on the word.

It’s a super cool effect!!!

I used the circles of the macarons in all their beautiful colours to create this fun & happy birthday card…

Just Add Ink #344 Photo Inspiration

Just Add Ink #344 - Photo Inspiration

How gorgeous is this photo inspiration for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge?

As you’ll see with the design team projects, there’s lot to take from such a vibrant & fun picture!

This photo sat with me for a moment, while my mojo took it’s time to kick in.

But in a flash of  inspiration, I decided I’d use the lady as a key layout element and turn the photo into a sketch!

I kept the water ripples as a background element but added in an ombre pattern by layering Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise & Bermuda Bay in the Seaside Embossing Folder.

The main element is the new Star Blast Edgelit die.  I’m having lots of fun using this!

I added in a few of my other new products too.

  • Happy Birthday sentiment from one of the hostess stamp sets in the Occasions catalogue – Iconic Occasions
  • Sale-A-Bration Metallic Ribbon
  • Urban Underground Washi Tape

There’s lots to be tempted by in the new catalogue!!!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team cards by visiting the Just Add Ink blog.
