JAI #649 Colourful Planters


Happy Friday everyone and welcome back! It's been a busy school holidays for us - with appointments almost every day and we are looking forward to the weekend and hoping to do some crafting. I hope you are your family have had a fun time and the kids are are looking forward to returning to school.

Just in time for the weekend is this bright and beautiful Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink  It's suggested by the lovely Annie and I hope that you enjoy it! The design team have all created a variety of cards to inspire you for this week over on the JAI blog and we'd all love you to join in!

For my card this week I decided to make the colours focal points filled with plants. 
The background is embossed with a 3D Wood finish and a shelf made with the plants using some black, silver and Bermuda Bay glimmer card stock.

Firstly, I can hardly believe that Bermuda is retiring! It is a much used and loved colour of so many, including me...but I guess we will all soon realise how good the new colours are. 

The plants are all stamped with Smoky Slate to balance the bright colours with the similarly bright white background I chose and help the planters be the focal points.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope that you can have fun with this bright and cheerful Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink this week. I look forward to seeing what you create!

Card stock: Smoky Slate, Basic White, Bermuda Bay Glimmer, Basic Black
Ink: Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate

JAI #647 Welcome Sketch


Happy Good Friday everyone and welcome!! I hope that you and your family are having a very Happy Easter weekend wherever you are and whether you are celebrating this season or not. Many kids will be enjoying the end of the first school Term for the year and many families going away which still seems a bit different having had so many months of not being able to travel over the last couple of years!
As for Sally the Lab and I...we aren't going away and will be celebrating some of the weekend festivities. 

This week at Just Add Ink we have this sketch from Di to spark our creativity.
The lovely team as always have created a fabulous array of cards with many themes and colours and I hope that you can pop on over to take a peek and hopefully join us!

For my card I just moved the layered sentiment panel to the top of the door from the side. 
This sweet Welcome home bundle is in the Occasions Catalogue and is retiring so if you like the look of it, there is not much time to left to order it. 

The DSP is from the lovely Dainty Flowers suite and the bouquet is coloured to match it using Blends and Copics. Such a cute stamp set I am sad this will be retiring soon!

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope that you have a lovely Easter and enjoy perhaps some extra time to enter our challenge this week at Just Add Ink.

Card stock: Basic White, Fresh Freesia, Old Olive
