JAI 442 sketch challenge - Tea Together

So it's time for a new Just Add Ink challenge and this week it's a sketch challenge. Yay!

I was intrigued by the swirly elements. They made me think of the large stitched pattern die in the Needlepoint Elements die set (also in the Needle & Thread stamp & die bundle), so I teamed this with the pretty teapot stamp from the Tea Together stamp set as my central element represented by a circle in the sketch. This is how it turned out.

In review - Simple Waterfront scenes

Today I'm looking back to two easy to make cards I made with the clever Waterfront stamp set. I made these for a masculine card class last year, and also for my darling man on Father's day.

Last weekend we celebrated a special '0' birthday with a lovely friend so a celebratory card was a must too. I'm still loving the double easel card so I made this very fluttery version.

It may look familiar as
I took my inspiration from this double easel card I'd made for my darling man's birthday.
Here it is closed...

Broadway Bound birthday - two way twist

I have another two cards to share today using the Broadway Birthday stamps & die bundle. These were additional easy cards I shared at my masculine class way back in August. For a fun twist, the cards show totally different looks using the same sheet of paper from the Broadway Bound pack.

Had you noticed the pack designs  include one side in a classic combination of neutrals and metallics, and the reverse includes pops of colour. Here's a snapshot of the pack (click on pic for a closer look).

Anyway, back to the cards...

Bold Broadway Birthday gatefold card

 Sharing my Broadway Bound double easel card yesterday made me realise I hadn't shared the other cards I'd made with it and the cool Broadway Birthday stamps & die bundle - for my masculine class way back in August. Where have the past few months gone?
Today's card is the class project all my lovelies made. Tomorrow I'll share the other samples I made so pop back again then to see more. But back to today's card...
