JAI 124 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
welcome back for a new Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a colour challenge for you which I think you will find offers all sorts of possibilities - at least based on the variety of ideas the DT has come up with ;) Here are the colours.

The first thing that popped into my mind was to put together a Christmas card - but then I've spent the last couple of weeks designing Christmas cards for upcoming Christmas stamp a stacks - so that might have had something to do with it :)

I thought I'd make something fun for my niece and nephew, so I pulled out the truck from Loads of Love and made a spinner card (although mine is more of a slider!). You can find a tutorial here on how to put one together. To give the slider room to move the Marina panel is lifted up on dimensionals. The truck is attached to a little pull tab which you can use to move it along the length of the track. It's a little hard to see but I sponged the Marina panel with Whisper White to create some clouds and also added some snowflakes and a tiny bit of sparkle. My truck was coloured with copics, trimmed out and also finished with some sparkle. The last element was to add a couple of clouds - with more snowflakes - and some bling.

If my Mr 4's fascination is anything to go by I think his cousins will be delighted to receive this at Christmas time :)

Thanks for visiting,

  1. Kim this is amazing. I have just ordered this set - woo hoo! I will have a look at your tutorial - awesome timing lol!!

  2. Hi Kim, I checked out the tutorial. Did you also use coins for the slide mechanism?

  3. This is just so cool. I love your slider card. I recently bought a book that has instructions for a slightly different version which I am dying to try out! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. It's a wonderful card Kim. I'm sure anyone would love playing with it actually, not just kids. CUTE!

  5. This is just fabulous Kim! I love the slider cards but have never got the courage to give one a try as yet! The truck is such a good idea for the slider.

  6. Your card is so much fun! I love that the truck can go forward and back.


  7. This is delightful, Kim! I love the stamped clouds, and the kids, no doubt, will LOVE the interactive nature of this very cute card!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
