Just Add Ink #484 - Just Add a Colour Combination



So we have a gorgeous colour combination for our challenge at Just Add Ink this week. Check it out.


It just so happens that the challenge colours are in this gorgeous paper from the Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper. Add in great card fold and some handsome penguins from the Playful Penguins stamp set and you have a fun card.


Each penguin is perfectly accessorised!


This card fold is called a Triple Easel card. I have used a fabulous tutorial written by my friend Nicole Wilson to make this. Make sure you check it out - it is great value and easy to follow.


My Snowfall Accents Puff Paint arrived the day I made this card so any penguin standing still for too long got puffed!


Even though this card stands up proudly for display, it still folds flat to fit into an envelope.


Make sure you pop on over to the Just Add Ink page to see how all the other Design Team members used these fab colours. Why not enter your own creation? We always love seeing them!

Colour INKspiration Challenge #68 Blog Hop



Welcome back to another Colour INKspiration challenge. This one is full of my favourite greens with a touch of silver.


I have taken a slightly different approach for this challenge - how unusual for me! I designed this card for a class. It's a design that is quick and easy to replicate in other colours.


So ...... I made it in all of the challenge colours as they are all so gorgeous.


The Christmas Gleaming bundle is perfect for your Christmas card making endevours. You can whip up this design in no time and in any colour that you have on hand. I had a weird dream that I made them in every Stampin' Up! colour and arranged them in colour order - gee they looked pretty! Wonder if I will get time to do that?


I have used Note Cards to make these. Not having to cut the card bases makes it even quicker! Can you see the strip of Silver Foil on the bottom of each card? I thought that was fun way to jazz up the design. I cut 4 mm off the front edge of each card base and then added a 1 cm strip of Silver Foil.


I have gone for a bit of a collagey design. I love the scrolly fleur-de-lis-ish stamp. Adds lovely detail!


Add in some pearls and you have a quick card. I hope that this helps you get your Christmas cards knocked over in not time!

Stamp Review Crew - Perfectly Plaid



Welcome back to another Stamp Review Crew blog hop. The Stamp Review Crew is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world that get together on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month for a blog hop. Each hop we showcase one stamp set and show you just how much you can do with it. Get ready for lots of inspiration and lots of reasons to use (or buy😊) this stamp set! Currently you are visiting Lou Kitzelman on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. Hi!

For this hop we are featuring the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.


It is a really great set and the fact that it coordinates with the Pine Tree punch is a bonus. You know what that means! Beautiful cards made quickly and easily!

Of course there are lots of fancy card designs you could make with this bundle but today I wanted to show you some cards that are quick, easy and perfect to mass produce. 


Adding in the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper with those gorgeous gold stripes means you have the perfect backdrop for your punched trees.


Add in a touch of ribbon and some gold foil edging and you have an elegant card that doesn't necessarily look like it was quick and easy.


By simply using a different piece of dsp from the pack and a different colour you get a different look.



Make sure you hop around to see what all the crew have done with this gorgeous stamp set. Next up is the fabulous Heidi Baks.

Colour INKspiration Challenge #67 Blog Hop



Welcome back for another Colour INKspiration challenge. We have a rich and bold colour combination for this challenge.


It must be that time of year - you know how it is - some annoying person tells you how many days until Christmas and you go into a tailspin wondering how you will get it all done! So let's just say I spent a tad too long in the tailspin and have left this to the last minute. So it will almost be like - this is what I made, here's a close up, see ya!

So ..... this is what I made! I've used the Still Scenes bundle to make a quick snow globe card. Vellum gives that see through (ish) look, quickly. It is hard to photograph but in natural light you can see through a bit more that it shows here.


Here's a close up! (Couldn't resist!) I've used some Ice Stampin' Glitter on the card front, in the groves of the snow globe stand and inside the snow globe. Well a snow globe needs the snow! Just add some Fine Tip glue wherever you want the glitter, sprinkle on, leave to sit for a few minutes then shake off excess. My Pacific Point twine is from the Follow Your Art embellishment kit. The little heart trinket is also from that kit - just that little special touch to jazz up my quick card.


And don't you just love that sentiment! It is one from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. There are so many great sentiment stamps in that set!
