Just Add Ink #422 Choose Two



Hello there,
our continuing chilly weather creates the perfect ambience for creating Christmas cards (well one anyway). This week at Just Add Ink Rochelle has a fun Choose Two challenge for us. You need to Choose Two of the three options and use them on your project. I decided to have a little fun and created my own embossing folder using dies.


Here how it turned out.




To emboss with my snowflake dies I used the new SU! embossing mats (and the correct Big Shot sandwich! That is super important if you don't want to die cut your embossing mats by mistake). I was hoping to get enough depth in the embossed pattern that when I brayered ink over the pattern you would see a difference and it worked, somewhat randomly but it did work! My sentiment panel is my embossing powder element. First I silver embossed my 'Noel' then laid that over an embossed repeated Christmas sentiment. The silver snowflakes add the necessary touch of Christmas glam!

The rest of the Just Add Ink DT have wonderful projects to inspire so go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.

Thanks for visiting,
Kim

Just Add Ink #421 Sketch



Hello there,
it has been (almost) blowing a gale for a week now, every time I head out the door I just have a huge shiver go through me as I step put into that cold wind. So to balance that out what better than a flower - a bold red rose! This week at Just Add Ink Narelle has asked us to Just Add a Sketch. I decided to use a new bloom as my feature element. Here's the sketch.



And here is what I came up with.



I kept this card pretty classic and simple, letting the rose and its foliage be the star. I did love the option of adding subtle texture and detail with the new Subtle embossing folder and Stitching Label framelits. A bit of bling never goes astray so I backed my pearly doily with some silver glimmer and added scatter of sequins. The little stitch pattern on the Poppy base was stamped using white craft ink which I forgot to include in the product list below.

The Just Add Ink design team have gorgeous projects to show you so please do go check them out and then come back and join in the challenge.

Thanks for visiting,
