Pretty Packaging for JAI #414

Happy Friday everyone and welcome! With yesterday being the Shortest Day of the year here in the Southern Hemisphere, we can finally look forward to the days getting longer again and the taste of Spring! It also will make taking photos of projects a bit easier in the days ahead too :-)

This week at Just Add Ink, the lovely Nikki has suggested that we Just add a Window or Frame - or both if you would like. The choice is yours :-) Our lovely design team had a lot of fun with this and have created some really fabulous projects to inspire you so I hope you can take a pop on over to take a peek and hopefully join us.

For my project, I created an Octagon box and decorated it with a square frame and floral elements.
There is some black and white striped ribbon to act as a belly band and some similar DSP from the now retired Tutti Fruitt stack acts as a base inside the frame. Black and white, pink and greens - all work so well together even if I do say so myself :-)

The flower background is stamped off once to help the outline to shine and the sequins made their way to outside the frame as well as inside.

Card stock: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
DSP: Tutti Fruiti Stack (Retired)
Inks: Melon Mambo, Lemon Lime Twist, Garden Green
Accessories: Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Black and White Ribbon, Metallic Sequins, Gold Faceted jewels

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 inspiration the design team have created for you and I look forward to seeing what you will create for this fun challenge too.

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. So lovely, Jan. I would love to CASE this, and your colours are just perfect too. D xox

  2. Stunning, Jan! The pink and green pop so well against the black background. I love the scattering of sequins.
