Just Add Ink #98 - Just Add Sparkle

Just Add Sparkle!  And that's just what I did!  Can you see it?!

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink came from the very very talented and beautiful Patrice Easton, from Spring Blossom Musings.  I love pretty things, so this was right up my alley!

I needed to make a card for my gorgeous little daughter, Charlotte, who is turning 6 on Christmas Eve...and as mother like daughter, she loves pretty things too - and loves her "diamonds" and bling - hence, I had to make her this "loaded to the max" card!
I have used Stampin' Up's Pick-A-Petal stamp, then cut out the petal and covered it in Crystal Effects and then sprinkled Stampin' Up's Chunky Sprinkles over it.
The #6, I found in my stash and just used a sponge dauber to rub some Pear Pizzazz into it and then covered the #6 in Crystal Effects as well.

I even extended myself this week by blowing off the dust off my much-neglected sewing machine....after a trial run on some scrap paper, I was off and sewing - all going well....until for some reason it just stopped sewing halfway and then picked up again before I realised.  So....I decided to unpick it all, sew it all without cotton (so it made the dots for me) and then hand-sewed it all!  As you can see, there was a reason why there was so much dust on my machine!  But I'm really happy with the effect and it really does "make a card" in real life (IRL)!

So thanks for coming to have a look....make sure you do go and check out the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team's work and leave them some love - cos they all do such an amazing job!

Just Add Ink #96

Hello!!! It's a VERY special week at Just Add Ink this week - it's "Just CASE Tania" week!  How exciting & special!  I'm honoured to be the very first Design Team member to feature in our new addition to our challenges!

The idea is to CASE or be inspired by something that I've made in the past - well, you can't exactly CASE something that I've made in the future, so good thing I typed "past" there hey?!
I had a very difficult time trying to decide what I'd CASE of myself, because most things I've made I've already wished I changed something here or there....but in the end I chose to CASE my very first Just Add Ink Design Team card!

I settled the colours down a tad, I think my colour-palette has changed somewhat since then!

1) Here I've used Pretty In Pink and Melon Mambo.

2) I've white embossed one of my all-time favourite stamp sets, (which I won at one of the Regionals I attended!) and used a sponge dauber to rub the ink over.

3) I then used a baby wipe to wipe over the top of the embossing to wipe off excess ink that had stuck to the embossing....and I think I was a little heavy handed with the baby wipe cos it kinda made the ink go a bit splotchy and dotty - but I decided that that was the look I was going for anyway!  ;)

4) Again, I followed Joanne Leddy's awesome photo tutorial on how to make this beautiful flower, (and thanks to a very special friend who posted me some punchies so I could make some as I still haven't got all the flower punches I desire!).  This flower is made with Whisper White cardstock, Silver Glimmer Mist and a SU bling-brad, well that's what I call them!

5) I've mounted the embossed cardstock on Basic Black and popped them up on SU Dimensionals.  I found some really lovely black sequined ribbon and added that.  And done!

Thanks for coming over to have a look and read....I really look forward, especially this week, to seeing what others create!  How exciting!
