JAI 413 colour challenge - congrats new driver


 

Hello Friday! It's new challenge day at Just Add Ink and this week we're working with this tropical colour combination suggested by meeeeee.


This combination reminds me that colour inspiration is everywhere. I'd seen 3 people sitting together at church wearing this combination & made a note. I was so taken by how fresh it looked and how like our SU colours they were so I suggested it to the team, & here we are.

Also, I absolutely love our new granny apple green colour (& not just for the brilliant name). It's such a lovely bright but not too bright green, and it coordinates so well with so many other colours in our new colour collection.

So what did I make with this luscious combination?...

JAI 409 technique challenge - 21st birthday eclipse



This week at Just Add Ink, Rachael has challenged us to use the eclipse technique on a project. This technique has been really popular over the last year so it's sure to be a popular challenge. I made this card for a special birthday celebration.

If you haven't tried the eclipse technique yet, it usually involves die cutting part of an image (a shape, word, number) then popping it back in place with a dark layer behind. This creates a fun, dimensional look. The JAI team have created all sorts of eclipse effects on their projects to give you lots of ideas so be sure to check out the JAI blog when you finish here.

Celebrate 17 birthday shutter card



Last week our darling girl celebrated her 17th birthday, and yes I'm as surprised as you are that she's 17 already. I thought she'd enjoy the surprise in a shutter card, so that's what I made.

Petal Palette shutter cards



When I shared the gatefold card in my last post, I mentioned I'm was through a bit of a shutter card & gatefold card phase, thanks to my stamping bestie, Kellie.  So today I'm sharing the shutter card project I made for my ladies only-Mother's Day class last in April, that I cased to make that gatefold.
As an extra treat I'm also sharing a shutter card Kellie made for (lucky) me. Lots of photos ahead so let's get started.

Festive Friday on Tuesday - Christmas shine & reindeer



My plans for Festive Friday posts & making my Christmas cards each month haven't been happening for various reasons. Today I have a little time to blog and have just seen some of my favourite Christmas goodies on my SU store Clearance Rack, so Festive Tuesday it is.

Today I'm sharing a couple of my favourite Christmas projects from last year. Both show my favourite element for Christmas cards & gifts - shine. First up is this clean and elegant Christmas card with my favourite reindeer stamp from Santa's Sleigh.
