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!


  1. I can see why you chose this card to recreate Tania. It's lovely! I really like both of them. The single colour on the new card makes it even more elegant, especially with that big, fat flower on the front - beautiful!

  2. Wow! I love love love this card and am definitely going to CASE it myself. I ran out of time to join in this week :o(

    Your flower looks stunning!


  3. Beautiful! You "do" Tania so well, LOL. Love all your creations; how am I possibly supposed to narrow it down when it comes to a CASE attempt????

  4. ...and I remember getting wowed by that card too when you applied! *sigh* seems like only yesterday - lol. Hope you are well, I'll have a go CASEing you. :)

  5. I agree with Christine - narrowing down a CASE attempt was a challenge in itself - they are all so beautiful! Thanks so much for the inspiration - it was a pleasure to CASE your work and play along at the Just Add Ink challenge this week :)

  6. It's fun to see how your fellow DT members know your style. ;) Your cards are beautiful. They are OH SO STRAIGHT-that is not easy to do.

  7. I love that you cased yourself, and both of your cards are gorgeous! Thanks for the inspiration :)


Really love reading your comments - thanks for taking the time! Tania
