Just Add Ink #247 - Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the first Just Add Ink challenge of the new year. And as we have done in previous years, we are kicking of 2015 with a fun blog hop for you and we hope you will play along!

We have a theme and a sketch for you to try, so get your creative caps on and see what you can come up with, we would love to see it!




And here is my card. 

I have added plenty of dimension and layers to my project this week. I started by using the linen impression plate from Papertrey Ink on my white card (which was cut using the pierced die from the My Favorite Things blueprints 21 set) and also on my pink tag. I then used embossing paste and one of the new heart stencils from My Favorite Things on the white card and sprinkled with polysparkle embossing powder. Once the paste had dried I heat set it which gave me a lovely glossy and slightly sparkly finish (hard to see in the photos).
I then used double sided mounting tape to raise the tags and the hearts as well. I cut the hearts and tags with die-namics from My Favorite Things. The sentiment is also one from their latest release.





Next up on the blog hop is Di Barnes, so be sure to pop over to her blog HERE and check out her gorgeous project. Or you can just click on the image below.

Seize The Birthday - Party Time!


Happy  New Year!!

As you read this I am somewhere around the Ha Long Bay region in Vietnam. Here is a pic to give you a visual. We are in Vietnam for almost three weeks, but are spending New Years doing an overnight boat cruise on the bay followed by a night in a traditional Vietnamese village. 


But, that is not the reason I am here. I just wanted to share with you the first challenge of 2015 over at Seize The Birthday

Our "Toppings" option this time is...

Party!!

Very appropriate for the new year don't you think?




Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If your not a toppings kind of person, well.....you can just
stick with our usual "Anything Goes"Birthday!

The choice is yours!



And here is my card. I have to confess, I have had this stamp for well over 12 years and it probably hasn't seen ink in almost 10! But when I saw the theme for this challenge it came to mind immediately. And what says party more than confetti and glitter right? So I decided to make it a shaker card.



Supplies:
Stamp: Sugar Mice by PSX (1999)
Dies: My Favorite Things
Other: sequins, glitter, Copic markers.

Just Add Ink #244 - Sketch Challenge


I cannot believe that this time next week I will be on a plane heading to Vietnam for Christmas! Until then I have a very long to do list (which I'm sure you can all relate to) and about 30 Christmas cards to get made and sent.

For now though, I have a great sketch challenge to share with you, from Just Add Ink. 


For my card I used the cute new polar bear stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.
I kind of made a bit of a contradiction with my greetings thought didn't I. 'Warm Wishes' combined with 'Have a cool day'. Didn't think that out too well! Oh well, it was for my little nephew who I'm sure did not even notice!



Supplies:
Stamps and Dies: My Favorite Things
Inks: Memento black ink
Other: Cardstock from SU!, Misc DSP, Copic Markers
