Just Add Ink – Just Add Inspiration #245


MDS digital brush stamp Reindeer cut out on e-cutter using white vinyl!

This week’s challenge at Just Add Ink is Just Add Inspiration #245:

JAI 245 Inspiration Photo

I thought those two little white reindeers where so cute and used them as the inspiration for my card.  To make the reindeer, I used my e-cutter and a MDS digital file from the digital brush stamp set Winter Post.  I enlarged the reindeer image then cut the image out of white vinyl.

It is sad to say this is my last post as Guest Designer with Just Add Ink.  I have really enjoyed being part of the JAI team but with my return to part-time work, softball season, family and other commitments has meant I have been extra busy and struggling to keep up!  I love my crafting but lately my projects are being put together at the last minute just before handing over – hardly anytime for the glue to dry.   Finding time to then take a photo and make a blog post has become difficult.  I really appreciate what the JAI DT girls do behind the scenes to make such an inspirational challenge blog going – keep up the fabulous work girls!

If you haven’t already, make sure you check out the announcement for the new JAI team members, they are a fantastic group of talented ladies.  Check out the post here.

I hope you find the time to play along this week as there is soooo much crafting inspiration in that photo.  As I am sure I am not the only one that hasn’t finished off their Christmas cards yet!!

I will be taking a break from blogging until next year.

Wishing you a fabulous Christmas!


Just Add Ink Challenge – Just Add Colour Combo



This week’s challenge at Just Add Ink is to Just Add Colour Combo.

I am late!  I am late!  My Design Team entry for this week’s challenge is a bit late.  I have had a crazy/busy week and not much time to craft.  I decided to keep with a simple design this week and kept to traditional card making (no MDS!).  I love this colour combo with the gold.  My picture doesn’t sure how fabulous the gold looks on this card!

Here is a close up of the flowers on the card:


I hope you play along this week at Just Add Ink.

Just Add Ink – Just Add Clear Block Stamping


This week’s challenge at Just Add Ink is to Add Clear Block Stamping.

My card was designed using Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio (MDS) digital brush stamps.  I decided instead of inking up my clear block I would create a similar look using MDS.  The square background stamping is the ‘Textured Background Digital Stamp”.  Normally, you would size this stamp to the edges of your card to give texture to the outside edges.  I decided by reducing the size close to a block size would create the same clear block stamping effect I wanted.

The quote and pretty embellished flower comes from the digital download Blossoms Abound Kit.

I hope you play along this week at Just Add Ink.

Cheers Deb
