Just Add Ink #684 Colour


Hello there,
well with Christmas almost upon us. We have one more challenge for you this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle has asked us all to add traditional Christmas colours.

I make a gift card holder for each of the nieces and nephews each year for Christmas. This week was the perfect challenge to make them. They are always same, same but different, so each one gets something just a little bit individualised. Here's how they turned out this year. 

The holders were very simple, a strip of card stock, scored twice. One side folded over and adhered just on the edges to make a pocket for the gift card, then the remaining side folds to close it. To keep them closed I made belly bands embellished with shiny sprigs, snowflakes and ribbon.

The Just Add Ink DT have a some gorgeous projects to show you, so please go check them out, and then share yours! Thanks so much for joining us this year we love seeing all the projects you share with us! 

This challenge will run for two weeks, so you can also share your projects after Christmas when you have more time. It will close on January 3rd. There will be no winner's post for this challenge just the opportunity to share your work and inspire others.

The Just Add Ink team will be back next year with our annual blog hop on January 19, 2024. Till then wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Just Add Ink #682 Sketch


time for a new challenge at Just Add Ink. This week Tina is asking us to Just Add a Sketch. Here it is.

I decided to bring you a very non-traditional Christmas card filled with a rainbow of bright colour.

Once the colouring was done, and the image fussy cut out, this was quite quick to put together.

All the background needed was a splatter of white paint and Wink of Stella, a strip of glimmer paper layered with ribbon and twine through the middle to reflect the sketch, a scatter of sequins and it was done!

The Just Add Ink DT have lots of great projects to show you so please go check them and then come back and join in the challenge.
