Painted Petals for JAI #411

Happy Friday and welcome to Winter down under or a very happy start to Summer to you if you are popping in from the Northern Hemisphere. Here in Melbourne, it has been a chilly, windy and a little damp start to Winter. We are really glad our gas central heating is back in action having gone on the blink for the last few weeks. Winter...shorter, cooler and flu and cold ridden days...yes, bring on Spring please :-)

But there are happy things happening this week too - a new Catalogue is open for orders from Stampin Up and at Just Add Ink this week we have a new sketch for you - the first ever from me (with the help of the lovely Narelle to bring it to life). The design team have created a wonderful array of cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a peek and join us :-)

Initially, when designing the sketch I was thinking of these leaves from Petal Palate to place above the square so a little fussy cutting later and here they are!! The delicate frame is cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper and there is a light pink water colour wash added behind the roses.

Maybe you can see that better in this photo.

The frame and sweet roses are from the new Painted Glass Bundle, now available to order and the hugs is from the now retired Lovely Words Thinlits which I'll be keeping along with the Pink Pirouette card stock that goes so well with Melon Mambo :-)

Card stock: Whisper White (thick and standard), Pink Pirouette, Sparkle Glimmer, Gold Foil
Inks: Melon Mambo, Garden Green, Black Stazon
Stamps: Petal Palatte, Painted Glass
Accessories: Big Shot, Stained Glass Thinlits, Lovely Words Thinlits, Metallic Sequins, Aqua Painter
Non SU: Distress Watercolor Card stock (TH/ Ranger)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the fabulous inspiration our lovely design team have created for you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this clean and versatile sketch too.

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Wow - gorgeous! I love how light and airy the frame from the Stained Glass Thinlits looks cut in the glimmer paper.

  2. A lovely fresh & pretty card, Jan. Love the delicate deail that the glimmer frame adds too.
