Animal Outing Jigsaw cards

Just a quick post today. A few weeks ago I showed you a cute puzzle card. It was part of a class that I held recently and I thought you might like to see the other cards that we  made.


The Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper is perfect for these puzzle cards.


All you have to do is colour one of the cute animals from the Animal Outing stamp set with Stampin' Blends and your design is complete. Too easy!








You can find out how to make these cards in my previous post. I can see some Christmas versions coming out of my craft room soon!

Colour INKspiration Challenge #42 Blog Hop



You know it - it's time for another Colour INKspiration challenge and as always we are kicking things of with a blog hop. Welcome also to our winner of #CI41 and Guest Designer Leigh Mahoney. You can see her gorgeous card on our Facebook page. So what do you think about this gorgeous colour combination?

I was itching to crack open my Merry Christmas To All bundle for this challenge. The word thinlits are spectacular and because of the size they are the star of the show! Not much else needs to be added!


I die cut 4 of each word and glued them together with Multipurpose Glue. It occured to me as I was gluing the last layer that it would have been much easier to use Mulitpurpose Adhesive sheets! Oh well .... next time! The 4 layers really make the words stand out ......


..... and some copper embossing doesn't hurt either! It think it gives a luxe feel! I clearly have been watching too much of a renovation show currently airing on Australian telly!


The shine from the copper embossing powder, copper foil sheets and the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper give the card a light, modern and you guessed it ... luxe feel.


Simple borders and a some Mint Macaron Nature's Twine was all the card needed to highlight the main panel.


Oh and don't forget to show the inside our your card some love too! Off cuts from the card front and an embossed frame are lovely additions.

Just Add Ink #427 - Just Add a 'K'



Hi Everyone. Happy Friday! Hope you have a fabulous weekend in store. Maybe some crafting? This week at Just Add Ink we are all about K! 



Now I have to tell you I was stumped for quite a while. It didn't help that I had a dream about this challenge a few weeks ago and woke up quickly to write down my fantastic idea. When I became a bit more lucid I realised that adding Ketchup (as a painting technique) just wouldn't work! Somehow I overcame the urge to use that technique and came up with the Kind Kinetic Kris Kringle Kangaroo.


He is on a wobble spring ... check out him getting all kinetic-y here!


He is kind because he is wishing you everything on your list! The Signs of Santa stamp set were perfect to add the Christmas details to this cute fellow. I simply cut Santa's hat and list off and adorned the Kanga with them.


The trees are from Rooted in Nature. I stamped each tree several times before reinking to give the forest depth.


Oh and did you notice his shiny belly and hat trim? I painted some Frost White shimmer paint on.


Well that card was a bit of fun and sure beats my dreamy ketchup idea! The things that go on in my brain!

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