Just Add a Sketch

The weather this week has been lovely and mild for the end of Autumn - plenty of cool nights and some beautiful sunny days that have made the chilly mornings worth it.

And at Just Add Ink we have a new challenge for you! The lovely Kim has suggested a fabulous sketch for you to work with this week. It is very clean and open to interpretation and I hope you have a moment to pop on over and see the wonderful creations the Team have made to inspire you.

Here is the sketch:

And here is what I made with it:

I started with the fabulous greeting from #Hello and after adding to the black circle it reminded me somewhat of a record and it's label - so I decided to go a little more Retro and added the silver details. And there also is a new colour here to introduce - the fun Watermelon Wonder which is one of the new In Colours coming in the Catalogue that starts next week - not long to wait now :-)

Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Silver Foil
Inks: Watermelon Wonder, Momento Tuxedo black
Stamps: #Hello
Accessories: Big Shot, Circle Framleits. Large Polka Dots EF,  Hexagon Punch, Silver Ribbon,  Basic Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a moment to pop over to Just Add Ink and see all the wonderful creations the Team have made to inspire you this week. And I look forward to seeing what you will create with this Challenge too!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Love what you did with the sketch! Very CAS with a punch of color! Have not been doing much challenges lately....trying to pare down and organize my craftroom (LOL good luck with that right?), setting up my FB account (Cartes Mamilou) etc.

  2. The silver really makes a difference. I like the seeming simplicity of this card. Thanks so much for all your kind, encouraging comments over the month.

  3. As soon as you said record label I thought Oh my goodness yes! Love how you backed it with the large polka dot EF, and how that little strip of silver taffeta breaks up the banner. x

  4. Love this so much! Clean, modern and just love that embossing. Perfection!

  5. Jan, I love the simplicity of your card, how you have extended the banner to the edges of the card and the way you have used the ribbon. Chantell x x

  6. Your card does look like a vinyl record. Very cool. Love the silver touches too. x

  7. Great card, Jan! Simple & elegant! Love it! - Katerina
