JAI 476 inspiration challenge - Floral birthday with blends


It's inspiration image challenge week at Just Add Ink and I can definitely say this one was a challenge for me. I loved this tulip and colour filled challenge image - nature always combines colours beautifully so of course I had to go floral.

JAI 474 colour challenge - Floral celebration card

I love a good colour challenge and this week at Just Add Ink the lovely Jo has given us a beautifully rich combination of rococo rose, blackberry bliss & mossy meadow.


These immediately said florals to me so I got to work with the pretty, new Bloom and Grow stamp set & die bundle and this is what I made.

8 more guy cards with A Good Man

I have eight more guy cards to share with you today - yes eight!

Playing with the A Good Man stamp set was so much fun that I made lots of cards with it, mostly variations on a theme. Some have similar folds, colours, layouts to the first two. It's amazing what you can create by mixing & matching.

I hope you enjoy seeing them all and they inspire you to use some of the ideas to make your own versions. You'll find all the supplies at the bottom of the post to order what you need.
Let's get this project & photo fest on the road.

Two folds - three cards for guys

Ideas for cards for guys always seem to be top of the list of trickiest and most requested cards, so the good news is that I have three guy cards to share with you today, and more to show you next time too.

These were the first project options from my August class, using the A Good Man stamp set. They include many of the same elements, but all have a twist to give a different look. Each person got to choose which version to make & customised it to suit the recipient using the images & sentiments they wanted.

 These also received my darling man's seal of approval so I hope you like them too & feel inspired to try making them for your favourite guys. So let's get started. There are LOTS of pics.

JAI 472 sketch challenge - Perfectly Plaid Christmas tree card

It's only five days until the 2019 Christmas-Holiday Catalogue begins (yay!) so I'm counting down with a Christmas card made with some of my faves, and the new Just Add Ink challenge sketch.


Tina came up with this week's sketch and I think it's a goodie with all sorts of possibilities.
