JAI #356: STAMPIN' UP! THIS LITTLE PIGGY ... SNEAK PEEK








Here is this week's Just Add Ink challenge, for us to incorporate on a papercraft project:




Despite having bought Copper Foil sheets and embossing powder, I haven't really embraced the whole copper trend.   I decided to take this opportunity, to pair copper with balloons.

The card I am sharing with you today has several sneak peeks of new Stampin' Up! products that will go on sale on 1st June.  (I was able to order these products well in advance of release date, by attending the fabulous OnStage event in Perth recently.)  The focal image is from the This Little Piggy stamp set; the gorgeous dotty balloon is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set; I've used Powder Pink ink and cardstock, and Lemon Lime Twist ink (two of our lovely new In Colors); and have scattered a few Glitter Enamel Dots around.




Now that I've uploaded the pics, it seems my camera lens had a foggy patch on it, that I hadn't previously noticed.  I trust that you can still see all the details!

Make sure you check out the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team's creations - they're fab!  We hope you are inspired to play along with us.

Listed below are the current products used to put this card together; if you would like to buy them for yourself, just click on one of the thumbnail images, to be taken to my online store.  The "sneak peek" items I used won't be available until 1st June, though.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope my card puts a smile on your face.  A little cuteness never goes astray, especially on a Friday!

JAI #355: STAMPIN' UP! DOUBLE TAKE ENGAGEMENT CARD

This week's Just Add Ink challenge is to use this great sketch, designed by Narelle, on a card or other papercraft project:



Recently we have celebrated a very happy event in our family ... my eldest son, Jack, proposed to his gorgeous girlfriend in Central Park, New York, and she said "yes"!  I am so thrilled for them; what a lovely time of their lives, filled with so much love, hope and promise.  I have used this sketch (and fiddled with it a bit), to make an engagement card for Jack and Tanikka.




You can see the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team's creations, using this sketch, here.

Listed below are the Stampin' Up! products I used to make this non-traditional engagement card.  If you would like to buy the products for yourself, clicking on one of the thumbnail images below will take you direct to my online store (for Australian residents only).

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today.  Young love is a beautiful thing, isn't it?

JAI #354: STAMPIN' UP! SITTING HERE "THINKING OF YOU" CARD

For this week's Just Add Ink challenge, we have a beautiful inspiration pic to get the creative juices flowing.


The pattern on the teacup made me think of Stampin' Up!'s Moroccan Designer Series Paper, which determined my colour scheme.  I was inspired to make a friendship card, as it's nice to share a "cuppa" with someone you want to spend time with.   You'll see I've incorporated grey timber, and some Rich Razzleberry flowers, with matching enamel centres, on my card:





I wanted to place a couple of little bows near the top of the swing's ropes, but found the Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine too heavy.  My solution?  Separate the threads of the twine (I halved the thickness) ... great colour match, and a nice, delicate, embellishment.

Listed below are the Stampin' Up! products I used to make my card.  If you would like to buy the products, please click on one of the thumbnail images, to be taken to my online store (for Australian residents only).

Make sure you check out the glorious creations of the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team; there are some beauties this week!

I'm in for a wonderful weekend; I'm travelling to Perth, in Western Australia, for a Stampin' Up! OnStage Local event.  It will be a weekend of catching up with friends and family, and getting my hands on the brand new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue in advance of its release on 1st June.  How exciting!  I hope you have a great weekend, too.
