Just Add…. Sequins!

This week’s Just Add Ink challenge is to use Sequins.  Definitely a challenge for me, sequins are some I seem to avoid using, not for any particular reason, I just don’t think of using them.  But I do like a challenge! 🙂

To create my card, I have used the Word Bubble Framelits, in particular, the cloud shaped one.  I have used it to cut out a cloud of heavy cardboard, which I have then used as a template to sponge around, creating the cloudy sky look in the background.  I have made two clouds in silver foil and then embossed them with polka dots.  The umbrella comes from the Hostess stamp set called Life’s Adventure, normally the umbrella is held by a cute fox but this time I just wanted the umbrella.  And yes, of course, some shiny sequins coming out of those silver clouds 🙂
There are lots of gorgeous ideas and ways of using sequins from the rest of the Design Team here.  And I look forward to sharing my last card as Guest Designer with Just Add Ink next week.
Happy stamping!

Just Add Ink Challenge

This week’s challenge at Just Add Ink is this gorgeous bright and cheerful photo, full of rainbow colours.

So I really had to use a rainbow on my card 🙂

I adore this cute little image from the Life’s Adventure Hostess stamp set, and thought he would look quite cute sitting under a rainbow.  I have coloured the image using a Blender pen and ink, then stamped the rainbow using the Work of Art stamp set.  Then there are just a few small finishing touches which are not so easy to see in the photo….. I have done some paper piercing around the edge but only where the cardstock is still white, so not over the rainbow.  And then added some rain drops using Crystal Effects.
Hope your weekend is crafty!
Happy stamping!

Just Add Ink Challenge

A quick post today to show the card I have made for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge.
My card again uses lots of new goodies from the soon-t0-be released new catalogue, but I am having so much fun playing with new stuff that I just can’t help myself! 🙂

 

The card uses a Project Life card which I have stamped the image onto, then done some paper piercing around the arrow to highlight it, and the cute bicycle image is from the new hostess stamp set Life’s Adventure.
Happy stamping!

Life’s Adventure

Another sneak peek for you today, more new goodies from the new catalogue!
Just couldn’t resist this cute stamp set, called Life’s Adventure, it is a hostess set which contains some gorgeous images that can be coloured.
I wanted to use the sketch from this week’s Mojo Monday challenge, and I have used some of the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Pack as a background, along with the cute little fox image from Life’s Adventure.

I have again used the Blendabilities, this time I have also used them to colour the button.

These products are from the new catalogue, so not available yet (unless you are a demonstrator), so you will have to be patient and wait until the 1st July to get yours! 🙂

Here’s the sketch that the card is based on:
