Just Add Ink 186

Posted on

Yesterday turned out to be a nice day. It was sunny and warm with a little wind last night. I went to my friend Christina’s son’s first birthday party yesterday. I am sad to say that I ate my weight in candy! There was so much there! I did find a new favorite, red gummy bears coated in milk chocolate! DELICIOUS!! I’m going to have go into Manhattan later on to drop off and order for a friend and I think I should walk! LOL! I also slept in a little this morning, you’re allowed to do that on Sundays right?!

Today I have my card for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge. Thanks to the crew over there for choosing my card for honorable mention for last week’s challenge. You can see my original post here and the Just Add Ink post here. This week they have give us this photo for inspiration…

JAI Inspiration 186

A very pretty wreath indeed! I was going to reach for my Wonderful Wreath Stamp and then I thought I should mix it up a bit! The base of my card is Bermuda Bay that I trimmed to 3 3/4″ x 11″ and folded. I used the Deco Labels Framelits Dies to cut out a piece of Gumball Green, I wanted it to hang off the sides hence the reason I cut my card stock thinner. The Whisper White is the Decorative Label Punch cut in half and adhered to the Deco Label. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Crumb Cake to serve as a base for my “wreath”. All of the presents are from the Wishing You Stamp Set and are stamped in Bermuda Bay, Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler. My trusty Paper Snips cut them apart and I adhere the first layer to the circle with SNAIL and the used some Stampin’ Dimensionals for the second layer. A few sequins give them a little sparkle. The greeting is from the Tags 4 You Stamp Set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched out with the Label Bracket Punch. Another strip of presents goes across the bottom to help balance the card. I really like the colors together and the gift wreath is pretty neat! Thanks so much for dropping by today to see my card for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge. I hope that you all enjoy your Sunday! πŸ™‚

  2. Awesome! Love it! The colors are really interesting! I would never have chosen to put them together. Was wondering if you have done baby, baby shower, bridal, bride shower cards? Would love to see what your creative mind does with this type of card. Need some ideas (lol)! As always, I really appreciate what you post for us, and truly look forward to seeing your creations daily. I always save yours for last!!! Enjoy your day! A fellow crafter from Blandon,PA.

  6. Usually I check out the challenge you are presenting, and take a few minutes to decide what I would make with the given parameters. You really surprised me today with the wonderful wreath card! Great idea, and the finished product is terrific. I never would have come up with that from the challenge picture. That’s just one of the many reasons I look forward to seeing your daily offerings…

    I’m still chomping at the bit to get out of rehab and get reunited with all my SU supplies so I can get started creating again!! Hopefully by this coming weekend.
