JAI#229 – Just Add Inspiration

JAI 229 pic

This week’s Just Add Ink Challenge is an inspiration image.  I love this photo but all I wanted to do was bake!!  The school my children attend are having a bake stall next weekend and I have been thinking about what I will make for the stall.  More importantly – what tag I will design to go with my baked goods.  I decided to use this week’s challenge as my inspiration:


The tag has been created using my e-cutter with MDS Digital: stamps, punches and papers.  I love that I can duplicate the tags and have my e-cutter cut them out very quickly.  In the bag are vanilla biscuits (with lots of food colouring).  I tried a few different biscuit shapes and although they do look a bit like play dough they are very yummy! This was my practice batch so I am thinking of using less colouring next time! I also made sure I printed the ingredients on the back of the tag:


I thought I would post two of my previous bake stall items with tags:

Gingerbread Men:


Banana Bread:


I do hope you will join us for this week’s Just Add Ink Challenge.

Cheers Deb




CASE-ing the Catty Challenge


Finally, I have had the chance to craft over the weekend and submit an entry for a new challenge website: www.caseingthecatty.blogspot.com.   This week’s challenge is looking at the Kids section of the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue with the idea to browse through pages 82 – 93 and find a project that you would like to re-create.  I decided to re-create a card I found on page 88 but I used the stamp set with ‘Boys will be Boys’.  I coloured the image with my blender pen and inks.


Check out the fabulous Design Team inspiration at CASE-ing the Catty Challenge – Kids.

JAI#227 – Just Add Chipboard



This week’s Just Add Ink Challenge #227 Just Add Chipboard:


I decided I wanted to create my own faux (fake) chipboard.  I have used the digital stamp from the Cool Like That Giftable Templates and my e-cutter to create the “chipboard’ tag:


I then used Tombow glue to stick the four pieces of Crumb Cake card stock together.  I also sponged the edges of the card stock with crumb cake ink.

The little box has also been created using a digital stamp from the Cool Like That Giftable Templates and cut with my e-cutter.

I do hope you play along with the Just Add Ink challenge this week.

Cheers Deb

JAI#225 – Just Add a Colour Combo


This week’s challenge at Just Add Ink – Just Add a Colour Combo #225:


My card today has no stamping!  I made the card using Stampin’ Up! Digital Flower Patch Stamp Brush Set and my e-cutter software.  Here is a screen shot:

I also created a panel for the inside of the card.  I removed the letters ‘Blooming’ to combine the words ‘Happy Birthday’.

I hope you get the chance to play along with this week’s Just Add Ink Challenge.
