Just Add Ink #260 - A Sketch

This week has sped past really quickly - I'm sure we all have days that seem to disappear before our very eyes under the list of things to be done:-) The Stampin' Up! Inspire Create Share event is beginning on the Gold Coast this coming week and many of the Just Add Ink Team are going of course (although sadly I'm not able to make it this time) as it's always an amazing time of sharing, stamping and enjoying new products  :-)

So this week's fabulous Sketch that Narelle has suggested for us will last for TWO weeks!! So if you too are going to the Goldie you still have time to play  :-) And the Team at  Just Add Ink  have created a great variety of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment and pop on one to take a look.

Here is the sketch:

And here is what I made with it :-)

We have a few family birthdays coming up so I couldn't resist the opportunity of another Birthday card - and the fun Celebrate Today balloon seemed perfect for the circle element of the sketch. I chose my colours to go with the wonderful Gold Soiree DSP  :-)   I am thinking I will make at least another with this sketch and possibly the same colour combo from the DSP swapped around - after all there is two weeks to play and it is a great classic sketch  ;-)

Card stock: Tangerine Tango, Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy
Designer Series Paper: Gold Soiree
Inks: Tangerine Tango, Versamark
Stamps: Celebrate Today
Accessories: Big Shot, Balloon Framelits, Large Polka Dots EF, Gold EP, Hexagon Punch, Gold Twine

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink to see the wonderful creations the Team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this sketch over the next two weeks too :-)

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Love your clean layers and colours Jan and the hints of gold are perfect for adding a bit of something special. xx

  2. Jan this is a terrific card. I love the bright happy colours (wish I'd purchased that dsp now) and can't wait to see what others you make using this sketch. Such a shame you can't make it up to Convention, we'll be thinking of you though and sending you lots of fun updates. xox

  3. What a fabulous, fun, birthday card Jan! I love your colour choices, and as always, it's so beautifully put together.

  4. This is such a wonderful birthday card with fabulous colours and papers! I am sad you won't be attending convention - it would've been great to meet you!

  5. Love your take on the sketch Jan! Beautiful and cheery card. Sorry you can't make it to the Convention. I am still hoping that maybe I will be able to save enough to go to the last one in Salt Lake this summer but right now it does not look too promising. We shall see! Can't wait to see the new catty, after so so many "retirements"!!!

  6. I never seem to have enough birthday cards either!! Love the colours you used and the balloon paper is gorgeous!

  7. Love the card, Jan. The colours, the balloon & perfect for a birthday for any age or gender. As you know I am always looking for male birthday cards and this one is gorgeous!! Thank you for the inspiration! - Katerina
