HaPEA Birthday - Sweet Peas - JAI710 Just Add Party Fun Challenge


Hello and welcome back to my blog! I have another Just Add Ink Design Team post for you today. This week's challenge is the Just Add Ink #JAI710 Just Add Party Fun Challenge . 

I used the Sweet Peas stamp set colouring the images with Stampin' Blends, as well as Gold Celebrations Specialty DSP and Gold Gilded Gems (both retired).



Instructions:

- Use Petunia Pop for the card base, layered with Basic White card and then a strip of Lemon Lime Twist card. Layer the card with a piece of Gold Celebrations Specialty DSP cut to the same size as the Basic White card. 

- Stamp the images from the Sweet Peas stamp set using Tuxedo Black onto Basic White. Fussy cut around the image and then colour the images using Stampin' Blends (Pool Party, Summer Splash, Boho Blue, Lemon Lime Twist, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo and Shaded Spruce).

- Stamp the sentiment from the Sweet Peas stamp set using Tuxedo Black onto Petunia Pop card, mat with a piece of Basic White and adhere all the stamped images to the card. Add Gold Gilded Gems (retired) to complete.

Hello - Poised Peony - GDP453 Colour Challenge

Hello - Poised Peony - GDP453 Colour Challenge


Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today's card is for the Global Design Project's GDP453 Colour Challenge. This week the colours are Pretty ink Pink, Basic Beige and Pecan Pie. I have to say this combination reminds me of ice cream but I decided to use some favourite florals instead. Visit the Global Design Project Instagram & Facebook pages during the week to see the entries.

For my card, I used the Poised Peony Stamp set, using Stampin' Blends to colour the image.  I also used Linen Thread, as well as the 2024-2026 In Colour DSP and Shimmer Gems to complete the card.


Instructions:

- Use Basic White for the card base and layer with a piece of Pecan Pie card, Basic Beige card and then a wide strip of the Pretty in Pink 2024-2026 In Colour DSP. Apply Pretty in Pink Stampin' Blends to a piece of Basic White card diluting the colour with Isopropyl Alcohol. Distress the edges with Paper Snips and adhere.

- Stamp the Peony image from the Poised Peony stamp set onto another piece of Basic White card using Tuxedo Black ink. Fussy cut the image and colour with both Pretty in Pink and Pecan Pie Stampin' Blends before adhering to the card front. Splatter some Pretty in Pink all over the front of the card.

- Stamp the sentiment onto the card front with Pecan Pie ink then tie a Linen Thread bow and adhere to the flower. Finally add some 2024-2026 Shimmer Gems to complete.
