Just Add Ink #385 | Sketch

If you’re reading this as it goes live, I will be spending some time at the airport – on my way to OnStage in Melbourne.

I feel oh-so-lucky to be attending the event, spending the weekend with my team and getting a sneak peek at the new catalogue.

Tonight’s Just Add Ink theme is a sketch by Kim.

No automatic alt text available.

Make sure you stop by the JAI blog to see the amazing creations the Design Team has come up with!

I took some liberties with this sketch (I’m either completely literal or a bit loose!) to fit an idea I had for a birthday card.

I turned the circle into a heart and used ribbon for the banner elements.

And of course some bling!!!

The sentiment words are from the World’s Greatest Trophy stamp set.  I was so excited when this appeared in the Annual Catalogue – it’s great to have people words on hand (like ‘wife’.. this card was made for my Dad to give my Mum for her birthday).

The heart was made using Washi Tape laid across Whisper White cardstock and then cut using a pretty heart from the Sweet & Sassy set of dies.

Winter Wedding Wishes

Here in Australia, not many people have weddings in June.

Why not?  Because it’s winter and the weather is much nicer October to March, which is when you are most likely to attend a wedding.

On saying that, planning a February wedding isn’t exactly a walk in the weather park either!

We got married on 13th Feb 2009.  The week leading up to the wedding was 40 degrees (104 Fahrenheit for those of you needing the other scale) on 4 consecutive days.

We’d chosen black suits with black shirts for the guys and heavy red dresses for the girls (crazy I know but I had a vague Valentine’s theme!).  And of course I had layers upon layers of wedding dress!

In a stroke of wedding luck, the weather dipped down to a pleasant 29 degrees and was gorgeous.

You can control lots about the wedding but not weather! I’ve been to weddings where it’s rained, weddings where it’s been cold & weddings where I’ve been blown away.

One thing you can control is a sensational wedding card!!!


This card was a custom request from a friend who went to a winter wedding last weekend.

One of my personalised creations with a design that was inspired by the invite.

The invite had a black & white theme with cute fairy light bunting.

The bride’s new initials will match her husbands so my friend asked that this was a feature of the card.

Would you find it funny or frustrating if your initials were the same?  I ended up with alliterated initials by changing my name – I like it!


This theme was super easy to carry over to the inside of the card with the new Pick a Pattern black & white Washi Tape!

This is one of my all-time favourite wedding sentiments.  You’ll find it in the Better Together stamp set.

And you’ll find all your favourite Stampin’ Up! products in my online store.
