JAI 378 Just add texture - leafy birthday U-bridge fold



Happy Friday! This week's new challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just Add Texture. A fun & easy challenge so I hope you'll play along with the team.


I've have quite the obsession with the U-bridge fold card recently but today's card is the first card on my blog so far. We made this one at my August masculine card class too. Love it when a card does double duty.

Star quilt frame for sweetest girl



Did you see the star quilt birthday card I made for the sweetest 1 year old? Today I'm sharing the project that inspired that card - a framed star quilt for the birthday girl. Stella means star so the star quilt square from the Christmas Quilt bundle was perfect.

1st birthday quilted sweetness



Today's card is for a very special little bundle of sweetness who celebrated her first birthday last month. A very special card was in order to celebrate this milestone, especially since her lovely Mum is my stamping bestie too. The card coordinates with her gift which I'll share next time, as this post needs a ton of pics. Speaking of pics...

Daisy Delight in review - Daisy squares two ways




Oopsie, my final Daisy Delight project share didn't post when I'd planned, but here I am now, better late than never to share two daisy cards. Both feature the same basic design, with different looks.

JAI 376 Just add D - for Dad




Friday means a new challenge at Just Add ink, and this week we're adding something starting with the letter 'D' - a very easy challenge since I'm a D. 😊 However, I chose to make a card for Dad, since Father's Day was last weekend in Aus. This was also one of my masculine card class projects too.

Daisy Delight in review - Daisy Duo


Today's day 3 of my Daisy Delight review & I'm sharing another fun daisy project with you. This one is mainly thanks to my dear friend, Kellie. She shared a very similar version of this card at our SU team get together in May. I loved the simple, asymmetrical layout & fresh, bold daisy, so I made this almost identical version for my Daisy Delight class in June.


This stamped images are in-colours berry burst, fresh fig, & powder pink ink, plus wild wasabi. Normally, I'd use the same cardstock colours, ie berry burst & powder pink, but we actually used the similar rose red and blushing bride, which work really well too.  How gorgeous are the clear faceted gems too.
The second version is almost the same, except that I've changed up the sentiment, and lightly coloured the daisies with a blender pen & watercolour pencils.


If you're thinking the daisy colours look slightly different, yes they are. The stamped images are both Berry Burst. I used a light touches of Melon Mambo pencil on the left daisy and Rich Razzleberry pencil on the right. Both colours are deep pigments so you need to add very little colour. I normally wouldn't include two colours but thought it's interesting seeing the shade difference.

Here's a side by side comparison of the two cards, that you can pin for later.


Thanks for visiting, today. I'll be back tomorrow with another daisy project or two. Remember you can shop for all the supplies I used from the links below too.

Until then, inky wishes,
Di

Daisy Delight in review - Daisy Friend


Hello there & welcome. Today's daisy card and this post is quick and easy, so you could make a bunch of cards to send some Spring paper love to a friend. I am assured it's coming soon.😊


The combination of marina mist, pool party and powder pink ink makes a soft and pretty daisy background. Each daisy (from Daisy Delight) was stamped twice, offsetting the image to create a full daisy look, then stamped in the centre with the same colour.

To make the friend sentiment, I first cut the friend die (Lovely Words) and largest oval die (Stitched Shapes), together, then cut and adhered another oval to the back. The vellum softened the pattern a little, to help the word pop out more. I also added clear Wink of Stella over the friend shape to add a touch of shine (as usual, hard to see in the pics).


Did you notice the two Glitter Enamel Dots? They add such a lovely, subtle, glittery touch. I love that this pack includes lots of different shades of the main colour, as you can match them up with so many of our SU colours. I used some of the lightest Berry Burst ones here.

See - quick and easy. I hope you'll try this idea. Thanks for visiting today & see you back here tomorrow for another daisy project. See & order the supplies you need below.

Inky wishes,
Di
