Hello and welcome! This week has gone really fast...Already we are half way through May and whilst we can certainly tell the sun is lower in the sky it still has a little more warmth in it than we expect for this time of year. Not that we could ever complain about that :-)
And it's time for a new fun challenge at Just Add Ink. This week Patrice has put together a really soft and beautiful colour combo for us all to use. Our talented team have all created gorgeous cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look.
Here are the colours:
And here is my card:
This baby card is for some lovely friends who have just welcomed their second beautiful boy.
And yes, there is a new sneak peek of the new Swirly Scribble dies! These will be available to order June 1st and I can see they are going to be so useful already! Here, 3 are layered on top of each other to make a frame around the water coloured deer.
The little deer is stamped in Versamark and Pacific Point and then embossed with Clear EP so I could colour it using an Aqua Painter and some Marina Mist and Bermuda Bay inks. The sentiment is white embossed and layered over the top. And the fourth colour you can see in the DSP and Twine - to get the Mint twine, I simply unraveled some of the Mint Macaron and Black Combo Bakers Twine.
Of course, a box was needed to go with the gift - and btw Pumpkin Patch gift cards don't expire - so is really handy if the recipient has plenty of new baby boy clothes already ;-)
To create the box I used the same DSP as on the card and found on Pinterest, a square shaped box by Michelle Long. I adjusted the measurements as I needed a larger size - 11cm square. I will come back during the week with a tutorial.
Here it is closed - I used a vellum belly band just like Michelle did - using the Scallop Tag Topper punch on both ends of the vellum trip and tied it together using the Mint Macaron lace ribbon. Then it just needed a little tag :-)
Another little "deer" and a few touches of silver, sparkle, vellum and pearls :-)
