Just Add Ink Challenge #3

Wow, two challenge entries in as many weeks (I'd better go and have a lie down.....lol). Just Add Ink is a new blog started by some wonderful Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. They have a challenge each week and for this week they have selected a sketch.

And here is the card I came up with.

Sorry the picture looks a bit flat but I just can't get the lighting right tonight.

Stamps: En Francais, Inspired by Nature, Whimsical Words
Paper: Kraft, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla
Other: Sahara Sand Ink, Not Quite Navy Ink, Not Quite Navy Marker Pen, Kraft taffeta ribbon, Eyelet Border punch.

Happy Valentines Day

Well I know it isn't actually Valentines Day yet but I just wanted to show you some little treat boxes I made for the ladies at our Paper Mates stamping group last Saturday.

The little pillow boxes are die cut from kraft cardstock, then the 3 hearts are punched out using the Heart to Heart punch and the label is stamped using the Vintage Labels stamp set which is one of the current stamp sets you can get during Sale-a-bration and punched out using the scallop circle punch. I have tied this around the box with hemp twine. Inside were some lovely mini M&Ms.

We had a lovely day doing punch art and making lots of different embellishments to use on our cards.

Next month we will be doing "Colour Inspiration" and I will show you how a colour wheel can be your best friend when you are making cards or scrapbooking. If you would like to join us please call or email me and I can add your name to our mailing list.
