More poinsettia pop up window cards

Remember the poinsettia card I shared last week? It evolved from another card featuring the poinsettia line images in the Peaceful Poinsettia bundle. So today I'm sharing that original card and a third card that's a combination of both cards. Following so far? Just check out the cards & you'll get the idea.

It's new Just Add Ink challenge time and this week we have to ...


I was able to combine the challenge with a project from last weekend's class, which serendipitously was cards for little Kids & babies. So of course my K is for Kids. This sweet little card with a surprise pop up inside is what I made.

JAI 425 inspiration challenge - petal gatefold

Hooray for Spring in Australia! This week's Just Add Ink challenge is to make a card inspired by this beautiful inspiration image. Oh my goodness, how gorgeous are those hydrangeas & that idyllic little garden scene.


It's much too early for hydrangeas in Australia but the image immediately made me think of the truly gorgeous Petal Promenade paper pack. This features photographic images of real flower clusters and arrangements. Here's what I made with it.

JAI 423 colour challenge - make a wish

I'm always game to try a new colour combination and this week's challenge combination at Just Add Ink is certainly a new one for me.

Simple modern vases & the Stamparatus

Way back in May I had my first play with the my fave first pick of our then new annual catalogue - the beautifully fresh & modern Varied Vases stamp & punch bundle. Today I'm sharing the first of two clean & simple cards to give you a peek of what's possible with it.
