TST #12 and JAI #66

Good morning, It was a nice day yesterday here in Auckland, I had my hair highlighted and cut and of course I finished my card for this weeks sketch at Try Stampin On Tuesday. After seeing some other blogs I realised that I could also add this to this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink, as it is just add flowers.

This card took me a lot longer than I would normally spend on a card, I must admit I re-did a few things more than once, I just couldn’t get it to come together. I love the finished card it has a few techniques on it like popping pastels on the Medallion Stamp ( I just got mine so I had to use them), Water colouring on the flowers (bookmark), sponging around the edges, I used my markers to colour in the paper flowers to match the colours on the card and I have used Vellum on the butterfly with staz on and then used my markers again to colour in the back side of the image so it’s not so dark. I have also coloured some ribbon Bravo Burgundy to match using my brayer and used my Scallop Border punch to create the border on the circle. Wow that’s a lot of techniques on one card, no wonder it took me three days to get this one finished. (not whole days of course)

There are a few firsts here for me like colouring ribbon, i couldn’t believe how easy it was, and it is a great way to get that colour you want if SU doesn’t make it. I used my brayer as it goes on so easy and fast, I then but it on the window sill to dry for about an hour.

The other first I did was colour white paper flowers, this was also very easy and convenient as I didn’t have any in these colours. I just used the thick end of my marker and coloured them in. These also need time to dry.

So the challenge for TST was a pocket card, I decided to make a bookmark to go in my pocket, I know a lot of readers so it will suit a few people. Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Bookmark: can you see the Vellum on the butterfly, in real life this looks really pretty. I wanted something special on the bookmark but it couldn’t be bulky so this is what I came up with.

Of course I didn’t want a plain look when you removed the bookmark so I placed a simple sentiment on the base.

Just Add Ink #55

Good evening, it has been one very hot day today, although it did start out as a miserable foggy morning. We even had some rain so the saying four seasons in one day really fits today.

My husband arrived home nice and early tonight and gave me a lovely red rose wrapped in a gorgeous red material, the funny thing is I had also been to the same shop and brought the same red rose for him. the only difference is he brought one in a lovely vase.

I managed to make time today to make my husband a valentines card, and since this weeks theme for Just Add Ink is Just Add Love then this fits perfectly.

Here is my card:

DSC09083

I have stamped on the background of the Pear Pizzazz with the same colour to give it body with the new Bliss stamp set. I have also stamped on the hearts with the same set but in white. I have stitched the edge of the hearts to finish them off. I have sponged with pear pizzazz on the Top Note Die to blend into the background. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and I have used twine to finish it off.

60th Birthday Celebration Card.

Good evening, this is a very late post for me but if I left it till the morning then I would miss out on this weeks Just Add Ink challenge.

I have chosen to combine two challenges this week, they are Just Add inks…. Just add Colour Combination and Mojo Monday #177.

I have my mother in laws birthday coming up later this month and thought these two challenges was perfect for the occasion.

These are colours I would not normally put together but I like the result. All stamp sets I have used are from this years SAB.

Sorry for the rushed post but it is past my bed time so here is my card.

Sorry about the photos the lighting inside a this time of night is terrible.

Just one more photo and nothing to do with cards but I just had to share this. This is tonight’s sunset outside my house, isn’t it just beautiful, the colours are simply stunning.

On that note have a great evening.

Just Add Ink #48

Good afternoon,

On Saturday it was my 6th Wedding Anniversary. Although it was a very busy day we both had a good day. It started with myself going to my up lines house for a beautiful breakfast which I will blog about tomorrow, then we headed to Hamilton for my family’s Christmas celebration. That was so much fun and the kids had a great time too. Later that evening we attended one of my husbands friends engagement party for a few hours, so as you can see it was full on but very enjoyable.

The card I made Nick also fits in with this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge so I thought I might as well give it a go. The sketch isn’t quite perfect but it does have all the right shapes and basic layout. The heart was cut out on the Cricut Machine.

Here is the sketch:

Just add ink…….. Critters

This week on Just add ink, is Just add Critters. I have cased this card, sorry I have no idea who’s it is, so if it is yours please take credit and write a comment. I have changed a few things but the layout is the same give or take.

I have used a variety of products on it including the Two step Bird Punch, DSP, Top Note Die, Ribbon and the stamp set Occasional quotes. (level 3 hostess)

I have sponged around the top note using the same colour ink just to give it a darker outside edge.

Here is my card:

JAI MEETS CLEAN AND SIMPLE

This morning I had a lovely friend over for a few hours and we made some cards together, well I made one and Julia made a few, but it is so much nicer having someone to discuss ideas with and not just talking to the card stock, which of course doesn’t seem to talk back.

Anyway I made this card for this weeks Just Add Ink #43 and also this weeks Clean and Simple Challenge #116.

If I was to do this again I would do the card smaller so there wasn’t as much open space.

Clean and Simple Sketch:

and Just Add Ink this week is Just Add CHRISTMAS, so here is my card:

DSC08536

The trees are stamped in VersaMark then clear embossed. the the stars or snow flakes are VersaMarked then embossed with a mix of Dazzling Daimonds and Clear embossing powder. The shape is cut out on my cricut using the new and limited release, Christmas Cards cartridge, and is placed on dimensionals.  The ribbon is one of the free ones that Stampin Up are offering at the moment.

Just add Ink #42 – Masculine Card

Good morning,

 Well yesterday was one of those days, for some reason my computer has not wanted to work all day but now it is, so pass I have no idea what’s going on, I just hope it lets me get through this blog.

 For today’s card I have made a birthday card for my darling husband who is celebrating his birthday today. I have used the sketch from just add ink for it, I cant say I started out with that in mind but as I put it together it just worked. Here is the sketch:

 

And my card:

 

 

For the tree I have used four colours, the trunk is Close to Cocoa and highlighted with Chocolate Chip and the leaves are Old Olive highlighted by Garden Green. I cant remember the name of that technique when you flick the pen on the stamp to randomly add colour

 For the background I have stamped in Close to Cocoa but stamped on a scrap piece of paper first it was lighter again.

 I have used twine to go around the tree and some Chocolate Chip ribbon for around the card.

 Inside I have used the stamps from the level 3 hostess set called Occasional Quotes, I just love that stamp set.

 Tomorrow I have one of four scrapbook pages to share with you that I made on Saturday.

 Enjoy the rest of your day.

Narelle
