JAI 565 colour challenge - Daisy Garden thank you card

handmade thank you can made with Stampin' Up Daisy Garden stamp set and coloured with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. Card by Di Barnes - Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - colourmehappy - sydneystamper

Hello & welcome! Today I have a happy little thank you card for you. This is my Just Add Ink Design Team project for this week's colour challenge - Polished Pink, Pale Papaya & Black - suggested by Lou.

Polished Pink and Pale Papaya are two of our newest In Colours and this is the first time I've used them together. I think they work really well for the flowers on the pretty, detailed Daisy Garden image.

Here's my finished card.

JAI 564 Choose two - sloth hello card

Handmade hello - encouragement card using Stampin' Up! Back on Your Feet stamp set, Biggest Wish stamp set, Stitched Greenery and Tailor Made Tags dies. Coloured with Stampin Blends markers.  Card by Di Barnes - Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator - colourmehappy - sydneystamper - stampin up demo
I feel like a bit of a sloth at the moment since I'm pretty much at home all the time with our current lockdown. Maybe this helped prompt the idea for my Just Add Ink Just Choose Two challenge card. Who knows *smile*.

I thought a combo of sky, tree or trees would be a fun Choose Two challenge when I suggested it, but I had trouble finding images to suit my initial ideas this week. Always the way. Maybe I need some new supplies. *wink*

Anyway I wanted to send an encouragement card and thought the sad little sloth in a tree with the sky in the background would work for the challenge too, so here's how my card turned out.

JAI 562 inspiration challenge - Sweet Strawberry Birthday Card

Handmade birthday card using Stampin Up Sweet Strawberry stamp set and punch bundle. Made by Di Barnes, Independent Demonstrator in Sydney Australia - colourmehappy - sydneystamper - 2021-22 annual catalogue

Hello & welcome! Today I'm sharing my team project for this week's Just Add Ink inspiration challenge, which is a gorgeous Christmas scene - perfect for Christmas in July fun.

Some of the upcoming 2021 Christmas catalogue goodies (coming 2 August) would have been perfect and made the challenge very easy, but I don't have them yet. The beautiful red baubles did remind me that I haven't used the well named Sweet Strawberry stamp and punch bundle yet so I decided to try to reflect the image with it to create a non-Christmas project. This is what I made.
