JAI#201 – Colour Challenge

Hello Crafters,

This week at Just Add Ink is a colour challenge by Kim.

This certainly was a bit of a challenge for me ~ I don’t have anything Sahara Sand apart from one A4 piece of card stock and only the Ink Pad in Island Indigo, but I have managed to pull something together!


In our home, we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day although our 7 year old is asking what it’s all about. Therefore, I thought I might just create a card with a bit of a love theme!!!  I love the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and coordinating framelits.

This is a simple card, but effective in what the message brings!

I drew the line with a blank pen and before adhering the banners with Tombo glue and the Hearts with dimensions so they stand out a bit further.

Why don’t you have a go at some of the weekly challenges too on the Just Add Ink page!

Christmas, Thinlits Dies

I’m back!

Well hello lovely stampers,

We are back from our wonderful holiday to Phuket, Thailand. I hope you enjoyed the few photos we posted on facebook while we were away. You wouldn’t believe that we took over 900 photos, so there will be lots of Scrapbooking in the near future!

It’s great to be home and able to stamp again!

The new Expressions Thinlits Dies (from the Holiday Catalogue) got a work out this morning and they are wonderful. I was a little worried about easy they were going to release from the die, but they are fantastic. They sure will become a feature on many cards.

I started with this Christmas card using the thinlits and the frosted finishes embellishment with the Winter Frost DSP.


This card also uses the love thinlits with the Beautifully Baroque Bundle (stamp and coordinating embossing folder). You can purchase these 2 items at 15% off!


Christmas Card using the dies from the Keepsake Ornament Set and new silver ribbon from the Holiday Catalogue.


I love this Venetian Romance DSP pack of papers. I have also used the expressions thinlits using multipurpose adhesive sheets and silver glitter over the heart from the Hearts a Flutter Stamp and Die Set.


These are just a taste of what I have been working on and will have plenty more to share with you in the coming weeks.

To purchase any of these items, be sure to visit my online store!

Happy stamping,
