Stars in their multitudes

Hello Crafters,

Melbourne has turned on a gorgeous sunny day today, so I will quickly share a card I have made for the Just Add Ink Colour Challenge before heading outside to enjoy the sunshine with my girls!

The challenge this week is a Colour Challenge JAI#235.

I love this colour combination and needed to make a card for my daughter’s friends birthday next weekend, and these colours screamed cupcake to me!

Birthday Cupcake Card

I started with a card base of Pink Pirouette. I then got out the Stars decorative mask and using my sponge daubers and the above colours, I began sponging from lightest to darkest randomly around some Whisper White card stock. This almost gives the effect of Bokeh!

I used the Cupcake Builder punch with the 2014-2016 In Colours Backgrounds DSP, then Strawberry Slush card for the cherry and sprinkles.

I added some chevron ribbon before adding the embellishment with dimensionals.

I added the sentiment from the Sassy Salutations Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss.

I think this is a very sweet little card and I am loving the stars background. I know I will definitely be creating more of these!

This background is very cheap and easy to create, why don’t you give it a go too.

Please leave a comment below, what you think of my card.

PS I was the winner at JAI for this card!!!

Baby

Something for Baby

Hello Crafters,

I want to say a big sorry for missing in action over the past 2 weeks. I have been quite unwell, but now I am back and ready to share some wonderful ideas with you all!

I begin with a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a Colour Combination Challenge JAI#231.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My dear younger sister had her third baby last week, a little boy to add to the two girls she already had! It was such wonderful news and Mitchell is just adorable.

Anyway, I saw these colours and immediately thought baby card, so here it is.

I began with a Bermuda Bay card base and added a layer of Crushed Curry cardstock.

Something for Baby W'eve Grown

The next layer is Whisper White, the best cardstock for stamping on by far. I sponged the stars at the top using a sponge dauber and the stars decorative mask, then punched the side of the cardstock with the new stars border punch. Isn’t it just gorgeous?!!!

I stamped the pram from the Something For Baby stamp set in crushed curry onto the white card and again on some spare white card twice. I also stamped the pram in Bermuda Bay ink onto white card and cut out just the bassinet of the pram and added it with dimensionals.

The two yellow images on the spare card, I cut out the hood of the pram from each and folded them and put them together with glue.

I added some ribbon, tied it in a bow towards the bottom, so the sentiment could be added above it.

Something for Baby We've Grown     Something for Baby W'eve Grown

The sentiment is from the Baby We’ve Grown stamp set inked in black and punched out with the decorative label punch. The little stars on the sentiment are bits out of the stars border punch, so cute hey?!!!

I glued the white card to the crushed curry card and then used dimensionals to add them to the base card.

I didn’t feel it looked quite finished and it needed something, so I added a little of the silver glimmer paper which was an off cut from another project.

Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.
