Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #80

Well I made it, I managed to get in another challenge card before I start packing up all my craft supplies. (sob sob) This is good but sad as I know I wont' be able to craft for a while as we are moving house.
Anyway there is a sketch challenge this week from Bronwyn on the Just Add Ink website. I really like this sketch, and believe it or not the Stamp Set I have used I haven't even assembled, but come across it when I was deciding which one to use. Its a SAB Set called Sweet Summer and this is just a fantastic set for this Sketch. I am pretty chuffed with how it turned out.

Here is my card.
Here are the products used.
Stamp Sets: Sweet Summer (SAB), On your Birthday (Saying)
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, So Saffron
Inks: Perfect Plum
Stampin Write Markers: Wild Wasabi, Rose Red, Perfect Plum
Tools: Trio Flower Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Rhinestones,
Clear buttons, Silver thread, White Ribbon (coloured with Perfect plum marker), Shimmer Mist.

Birthday Wishes JAI 79

Just Add Ink Challenge #79

Well I thought I would squeeze in another challenge, maybe my last as I will be packing up my craft room very soon for the big move. So again I popped on over to the Just Add Ink website to see what challenge was on for this week. They came up with Just Add Tearing/Distressing to your project.

As I haven't used my Brights for along time so I thought I would dig out the colours and try and come up with a card from this group. I also went along with a Stamp Set that is being retired at the end of this month in Eastern Blooms. I knew I had to use some embossing folder as I just love these things so went with the Square Lattice. I actually also remember to add some buttons to my card for a change. (I always seem to forget about these little guys). So with that in mind this is how my card turned out.

Here is a close up of the Square Lattice Embossing.
So as you can see I had a ripping time.

Well I have a card to show you today, which is a rather sad reason. A friend passed away a couple of days ago so I needed to make a Special Card. I lucky for me don't do alot of sympathy cards and did find this one difficult.

I decided to use the Brushed Metallic papers in the Gold and my layers where in Very Vanilla. The embosslit die Beautiful wings also in the brushed metallic paper and some pearls. I did also spray some of the glimmer mist for some extra bling but hasn't come up to well in the photo.

Anyway here is the end result

Thanks for stopping by

Don't forget to pop by tomorrow for the
