Just Add Ink #286...Just Add "W"

Happy Friday friends! It's time for another challenge over at Just Add Ink and This week Tina would like us to "JUST ADD W".
This means you can add anything with a "W". It can be colours, embellishments, theme etc, it's totally up to you, as long as there is a "W" in there somewhere..:0)
I chose to add a "Wreath" and "Wishes" as my "W" elements. I also couldn't resist adding a cute fussy cut Santa from the lovely "Home for Christmas" dsp.

The design team have come up with some fabulous ways to add "W", so don't forget to pop by their blogs and check them out!

Just Add Ink #285...Colour!

JAI #285

Can you believe it's only 2 months until Christmas.....Thinking l'm in denial, it's just too soon!

Our challenge over at Just Add Ink  this week is some very on trend colours.  I'm loving all of  the gorgeous home decor, stationary and papercraft products around that incorporate these colours and deer/stag heads. So many of them just keep following me home..:0)
I recently bought a beautiful journal with a similar image to my card and it just so happened to have a few of these pretty colours on it....Hence my inspiration was born!

The design team have some beautiful inspiration for you over on the challenge blog..

Just Add Ink #284...Fancy Folds!

It's that time of the week again and this week over at Just Add InkDi would like us to "Just Add a Fancy Fold"...
As l'm still plodding along with my Christmas prep, l decided to go with another "Wonderland" creation.
It's pretty simple as far as fancy folds go, but it needed to be post friendly and this fits in a standard envelope...So it was a win for me.

I started with a standard half A4 card base in Basic Black.
Scored on the 8-1/4" side @ 2-1/8"  3-1/8"  5-1/8" & 6-1/8"
Basic Black panel is 4-1/8" x 4-1/8"
Whisper White panel is 3-7/8" x 3-7/8"
Winter Wonderland DSP panels 1-3/4" X 5-1/2" x 2
Basic Black Circle 3-1/4"
Whisper White Circle 2-3/4"

Don't forget to pop over and check all the fab "Fancy Folds" the design team have created!

Just Add Ink #282....Inspiration!

Check out the lovely inspiration we have for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge!   Narelle has provided such pretty pics for us to work with and l really enjoyed the creative process on this one!

It's pretty self explanatory, but what really grabbed my attention was the bold stripes and pink tones.
I used the fun Misti tool to get precise stamping...Love the concept, but must say l think l need some more practice, especially with the huge amount of images in this stamp set from Altenew..:0) To create the stripes l used the yummy big background stamp from SU called "Brushstrokes".

Don't forget to stop by the challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT projects.
