Hello and welcome. It's time to share a new Just Add Ink challenge project. This week we need to add large letters or numbers. Who doesn't love a large sentiment. I couldn't resist using my favourite Sending dies again. They're just such a lovely font and of course their size always makes a great focal point. I teamed them with the gorgeous Ginkgo Branch dies and one of the embossing folders in the new Basics 3d 3-pack. Here's how it turned out.

Hello and welcome to my Just Add Ink team project share for this week's Choose Two challenge with the options of water, wall, or garden.  I did a fair amount of head scratching trying to work out which elements to choose or make with the supplies I have.

I decided to go with water and garden, creating this peaceful, coastal garden scene using the lovely, intricate Grove dies, and retiring favourite, the Inspired Thoughts stamp set. Here's how it turned out.

Sea turtle diorama birthday

Hello and welcome! Today's share is another turtle card made with the Sea Turtle stamp set. This is the first of two turtle started out with leftovers from making this sea turtle shadow box card and other random scrap, You know I love to play with scraps.

I'm happy that the Sea Turtle set is carrying over to the new 23-24 Annual Catalogue so it will be swimming with us for a while yet. Sadly most of the other supplies I used - the Layering Diorama dies,  and Paradise Palms stamp set (and coordinating Palms dies) and patterned paper are being discontinued.

Anyway I digress. Take a look at the finished card. I hope you like it.
