Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge

I can’t believe how quickly this month has gone by, and the last week of April brings me to my final week as Guest Designer with Just Add Ink.  I have loved playing along with this great bunch of lovely ladies, and really enjoyed sharing my ideas with all of you.
This week’s challenge is to use this sketch for your inspiration:

I have used the sketch to make a masculine card, featuring the Moon Lake stamp set and the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack.

The image has been stamped in Early Espresso ink and then some light colouring added using Markers, and the circle layers cut with Framelits.
Thanks again to the ladies from the Just Add Ink team for having me along this month.  Make sure you check out all the inspiration from the Design Team here.
Happy stamping!

Moon Lake Sympathy Card

In my previous post I promised to show you the card that I made which matched the gift cards, and I apologise for the delay, I have been quite unwell over the last little while.  However, here it is:

Moon Lake SympathyCard

These were made in exactly the same way as the gift cards, so a watercolour wash first for the background, then stamping the image from Moon Lake stamp set with black Memento Ink, and I have coloured in the image with Copics markers.  I have also stamped the image without any colouring onto the envelope and also the inside of the card.

Just a quick Stampin’ Up! announcement for all of my lovely customers, regarding Blendabilities:

We are experiencing a quality issue with our Blendabilities product line. Except for the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad (item #132708) and the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad Refill (item #133456), all other item numbers have been turned off; this includes Blendabilities Sale-A-Bration item numbers.

If you are one of my customers with Blendabilities on backorder, please contact me.  More information will be available next week.

Happy stamping!

Anything But A Card Challenge

A scrapbook page or Project Life page? A picture?  A covered notebook? Or in this case, some gift tags…..
This week’s Crafty Boots Challenge is to make a project, any project as long as it is not a card.  I feel that I piked out a bit on this one, since my gift tags are pretty close to a card, so I will have to come up with something very different for next week.

My tags use the lovely stamp set called Moon Lake.  Before stamping the image, I did a very light wash of watercolouring just using ink and an aqua brush, then stamped over it using Memento Black Ink.  The images have then been coloured using Copics Alcohol markers.
I have made a card to match the gift cards, which I will share with you tomorrow.
For more project ideas for this challenge, you can see what the rest of the Design Team have made this week by clicking here.
Happy stamping! And crafting…..

Moon Lake

Today I am using some new goodies on a card inspired by the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

FMS168

I have used a new stamp set called Moon Lake, which I can see is quickly going to become another favourite.

I have combined this lovely image with some of the water paper from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (on page 40 of the Occasions Catalogue).  I think that paper looks so real, I just want to dive and have a swim!

I’ll be back again later with another project.
Happy stamping!
