Just Add Ink Challenge #478

Hi Everyone,

I've made a card! Ok, I hope you didn't fall off your seat! I've been busy getting ready for our fundraising event, the start of term 4, working stocktake and I went to a intro to yoga class tonight! I got into my craftroom last night and tonight I'm blogging what I've made!

I saw the Just Add Ink Challenge and thought it would be a great way to get back into the challenge/blogging thing - this challenge is to Just Add "H", so I decided to add "Hoot, Hoot, Hooray"

Here's my card for the challenge:

Just Add Hoot Hoot Hooray!
Crumb Cake, Early Expresso and Shimmery White Cardstock were used plus Crumb Cake ink and an aqua painter.
The sentiment has been stamped using the Craft White ink.

A close up to see the texture of the background layer - this was achieved by stamping Crumb Cake owls onto Crumb Cake card and running it through the Subtle Embossing folder twice (turning it 90degrees between each run).
 You can kind of see the shimmery white cardstock used for the main owl too!

And here's a couple of extras using some of my scraps stash - these are the same basic components for each card, I just tweaked the layout a little.

Mixing up the colours and adding Balmy Blue and the retired Dapper Denim cardstock.
The Background is been embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder

From the "Scraps Stash" - Dapper Denim Cardstock and a random piece of DSP

And if you hadn't heard via facebook about my fundraising event for the Breast Cancer Network Australia, Mum and I are hosting a card making and high tea this Saturday afternoon. More details can be found here.

It was for one of our team at work who was transferring to another store.

ESAD 2019-2020 Annual Catalgoue Blog Hop Sneak Peek

Image may contain: text

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the ESAD 2019-20 Annual Catalogue Blog Hop Sneak Peek. If you are just starting here, you've got 25 amazing blogs all showcasing some of the new products from the NEW catalogue that is launched on Tuesday 4th June. If you are following the hop, you will have come from Rebecca's blog.

I thought I'd make a little card and gift box set.

I have created my own dsp from the button stamps from the It Stamps with Art stamp set, which I then coloured with my watercolour pencils.

I made a thicker button embellishment by adhering 5 layers of card buttons, the button are from the Arts & Crafts Dies. Once the layers were glued together and dry, I sanded the edges with an emery board.

The box design was cased from The Paper Pixie, I followed Julie's facebook live video with the directions whilst she was creating her own version. (I confess, I did use scrap dsp and card to start with and then made this version in my own time)

The suede/fabric look for the Bermuda Bay stripe on the card and box were made by separating the top and bottom layer of smooth card by breaking down the fibres in the cardstock by rubbing it over my bone folder several times. 

Product List

Now the group that is behind this hop is ESAD and here's a little bit of info about it...
