Just Add Ink Challenge #294 - Just Add Something New Blog Hop


At Just Add Ink we always like to start the year off with a blog hop to showcase the first challenge of the year.
This year Rochelle has suggested we all "Just Add Something New". Now I know that won't be hard for the Stampin Up! demonstrators out there as the new Occasions catalogue and Sale-a-bration promotions have started! If you don't have anything new from SU! please join us using whatever new product you have and be sure to let us know what it is.
To make the blog hop extra special the design team have donated new SU! SAB items as prizes to the winner and two honorable mentions participants. Please note, to be eligible, you must create a "NEW" project using "SOMETHING NEW TO YOU" and leave a comment on all the design team blogs, be or become a JAI follower and blog your project exclusively linked to Just Add Ink. Any entrants that link to additional challenges will be disqualified. (The prizes are open to both international and AUS/NZ participants).
We look forward to kicking the year off with a celebration of new crafty goodness and inspiration and hope you will join the challenge with us.
You can begin the blog hop here on my blog or at any of the other design team members blog posts. Just follow the hop by clicking on the back or previous buttons you will find at the bottom of all the design team posts. Or you can start Here at the beginning.

For my card I have used some brand new goodies from My Favorite Things. Thanks to Fedex last week's new release was on my doorstep on Monday .. perfect timing for this challenge! This gorgeous stamp set is called Sketched Blooms and was so fun to colour using distress inks. I have also used the new wonky stitched rectangle dies.

What a fun card Jodene. The colours are so bright and happy and I love the sentiment. This reminds me of SU's Awash With Flowers stamp set (retired) which I loved. I may have to bring it out of retirement.

I love how you splattered with the same colors you used for the flowers. Ties it up nicely.

Hi Jodene. Those flower images are cute and oh so beautifully coloured but it was the wonky stitching die that really caught my eye - how awesome is that? I bet that will get a real work out in your craft room.

Tina said...

Aww, those flowers are so sweet! Your colour choices are perfect. Isn't the new wonky stitching die great?

Di Barnes said...

What a fabulous set! The wonky stitching is great. The best thing to me is the bright, fresh colour palette you've used. So spring-like and inviting.
