Layered Alphabet for JAI #413

Happy Friday everyone and welcome! It's been a busy week as have given my craft room a bit of a make over but am still finishing off a few decorating details so I hope to have the odd photo for you by next week:-)

In the meantime, we have a fabulous and versatile Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink this week for you suggested by Di. As always, our lovely and talented design team have created awesome cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look and join us.

I used the colours this week to create a card for a favourite Nephew's birthday. He got an electric guitar recently so the guitar from Epic Celebrations was a given :-) Here it's embossed in silver onto black card stock.
The letters and angled design is all thanks to the new Layered Alphabet Bundle. Starting with cutting the appropriate letters from card stock, they were then stamped using Playful Backgrounds and then the letters were stamped with Versamark and embossed in white.

I started the die cut letters with the "r" and left plenty of room on the left side that was later trimmed down. To work out how much space each letter needed, I laid the cut letter over the next piece of card and continued this process with each letter. 

Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green
Inks: Versamark, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green
Stamps: Layered Alphabet, Epic Celebrations (Saleabration), Playful Backgrounds
Accessories: Big Shot, White and Silver Embossing Powder, Metallic Sequins Assortment

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the fabulous inspiration from our lovely design team and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this fun colour combo too!

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. What a great card for a young man! You've combined the colours so effortlessly.

  2. My budget really wishes this card wasn't so fabulous, Jan. Oh my goodness the layers & letters look fabulous & the guitar makes it the perfect tween card. Another bundle back on the list.
