Peek A Boo JAI #305

Welcome and a very happy Friday and April 1st to you! I hope you've managed to dodge any April fools tricks today:-) I have a small one planned for our music group practice tonight ...will just see how that one goes - it's always good to have a bit of a laugh isn't it and this one will seem to be at my expense so should be fun!

And we have a fun new challenge at Just Add Ink this week that we are sure you will enjoy! Tina has suggested a great sketch for us all to use. It has classic lines and lends itself to much interpretation as you can see from the fabulous cards that the design team have made to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment and pop on over and have a look.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

I've had this cute stamp set since winning it at On Stage Local in November and this is it's  first inking. The leaf images are stamped on card stock and then punched using the Festive Flower punch - then a little fussy cutting to reveal the little fellow hiding underneath :-) The sentiment is white embossed and I've used some of the silver cord trim and rhinestones to add a touch of bling.

Card stock: Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzaz, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Sweet Dreams (Retired)
Ink: Pear Pizzaz, Lost Lagoon, Versamark
Stamps: Friends and Flowers, Suite Sayings
Accessories: Big Shot, Elegant Dots EF, Festive Flower Builder Punch, Blender Pens, White EP, Silver Cording Trim, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment and pop over to Just Add Ink and see all the fabulous cards the design team have made to inspire you this week and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this fun sketch too!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. This is super cute Jan! And you couldn't get more appropriate sentiment - love the detail you added in by insetting the baby in the pod! xxx

  2. Totally cute, Jan! You've pulled the whole card together beautifully with that sweet designer paper and (almost matching) embossing folder. Love the silver touches too.

    How did your prank go? xxx

  3. Such a cute and sweet little card! I won it too at OnStage! And yes spill the did your prank go? Louise

  4. Jan this is a very sweet card and I can't believe it took you so long to ink this set up! I hope your little joke was received well :)
