To kick off the year all of the team from Just Add Ink are participating in a blog hop to show you some of our new things - could be a product, technique, just anything new! Whether you have hopped over from visiting Nikki or are starting with me make sure you check out all of the team for lots of inspiration.
I've had fun playing with some new stamps, thinlits and a new card fold. This was one of those cards that I just had fun making! And .... I am not ashamed to tell you ..... that I love shaking it. It's quite a good stress release! This is a Shaker Shadow Box card and I have used Bronwyn Eastley's Mermaid Shaker Box card tutorial - with a few Lou tweaks!
This is such a fun card fold as it stands up, as you can see here, but folds flat to go into a standard C6 envelope for posting.
There is a section inside that holds the shaker elements. It adds some depth when it is on display.
I was so happy to finally get a chance to play with my Bubble Over bundle. Aren't these bottles adorable? And how about those bottle caps? As I was designing this I thought I would make a subtle engagement or wedding card. Thought the emojis on the bottles were a stroke of genius but that may have been the coffee talking! The 'bubbles' inside the shaker section are a mix of Iridescent Sequins and circles from the thinlit in the set that cuts the bubbles out. There are a few sizes which worked perfectly here.
There is a bottle stamp in the set but I have simply sponged the colour onto the die cut bottles, then flicked some water over the top to get a water droplet effect. Ish!
I was able to sneak a few other new products in as well - the Scattered Sequins Dymamic Textured Embossing Fold and the Celebrate You thinlits (which you can get for free from the Sale-a-bration Catalogue with qualifying orders).
And of course you need a spot to write your message - the back has a panel just for that! I really love this sentiment - fit for lots of occasions!
Make sure you check out all the exciting new things the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team has to show you. Next up is the amazing Denita Wright-Smee. Can't wait to see what new goodies she has been playing with.
Why not enter our challenge- we'd love to see your creations!
