JAI #581 Legs and Thank You


Happy Friday and welcome! Here in Victoria life is slowly returning to a new normal after all of our weeks of lockdown. Finally I got to catch up with some lovely friends we have been missing and we are able to take our masks off outside. We are still being cautious and careful but so far so good.

This week at Just Add Ink, the lovely Lou has asked that we add Legs to our projects! How cool is that?!! Whether that be human, animal, insect or anything in between, any legs will do and we'd love to see them all!! Our design team have created a fabulous array of legs of all kinds to inspire you so I hope you might pop on over and come and join in the challenge with us!

I was needing a "thank you" card and so for my "legs" element I brought out the fun and retired Kangaroo and Company stamp set. Coloured with Copics and Blends the Roo and flowers are paired together with a little bit of sparkle and shine. The colours are hard to show sometimes but the colours below are a more true reflection of the card.

Card stock: Berry Burst, Whisper White, Soft Sea Foam,Silver Sparkle (Saleabration)
Inks: Majenta Madness, Momento Tuxedo Black, Blends: Lovely Lipstick, Shaded Spruce. Copics
Stamps: Kangaroo And Company, Peaceful Moments
Accessories: Die Cutting Machines, Kangaroo Dies, Rectangle Framaelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Basic rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to stop by the challenge blog and I look forward to seeing what you will create for this very fun and creative challenge!

'Til next time,

JAI #579 Peace with Bling

Happy Friday folks and welcome! It's incredible to think that 2020 is nearly over and Christmas is nearlu upon us. This year has been yet another different one but hopefully now we can start planning towards a new type of normal again soon.

At Just Add Ink this week we have a Choose Two Challenge where you can choose two items out of Foil, Glimmer and Shimmer for the main focus of your projects this week. Our design team have created such a beautiful array of cards to inspire you I hope that you can join pop on over and join us. 

For my card this week, I started with some beautiful retired Christmas DSP that has copper Foil leaves all through it. I added a copper foil sentiment, some glimmery green die cut leaves and....seeing as this was a challenge I suggested and I just couldn't stop with the beautiful bling, some shimmer with red sequins as well!😀

Here you can see the gorgeous details when the light hits all the foil, glimmer and shimmer.

Card stock: Merry Merlot, Whisper White, Copper Foil, Green Glimmer ( 6x6 Assortment)
Inks: Merry Merlot
Stamps: Peace & Joy
Accessories: Die cutting machine, Joy Dies, Regals Sequins (retired)

This is the first Christmas card for me so far so I'd better make a few more! Christmas cards are often when we pull out the bling and shine but projects for this challenge doesn't have to be limited to a theme or Season. So I look forward to seeing what you will create for this fun Choose Two challenge at Just Add Ink this week.

'Til next time,
