First up is a slider card made with the super versatile Memories & More Cards. Traditionally designed for memory keeping and scrapbooking, the Memories and More cards also work brilliantly for card making.

The Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack has 50 double sided cards ( 2 each of 25 designs). There are two sizes - 3" x 4" and 4" x 6" and six of the larger sized cards have laser cut designs which make fabulous backgrounds or stencils.

You can find tutorials for slider cards all over the internet. I used a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers and amended the measurements to fit one of the large Memories & More Cards.

When you pull the tab, the yacht slides across the card while another Memories & More card is revealed. I picked a card that enabled me to use the cool little dial die cuts on the compass.

The slider portion of the card has been attached to a basic tent fold card base so that it can stand/be displayed and also provides another surface to decorate and space to write a message.

Another card, some sticker embellishments and a wheel trinket made for fast decorating the inside of the card.

The next project I have to share with you today is one of my favourite fancy folds as the base is quick and easy to create, it folds nicely for posting and works well with stamped scenes. The Shadow Box card is an easy fun fold which again you can find tutorials for on Pinterest/You Tube.

The Inside back panel is a piece of shimmery white card, sponged with Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove over a masked circle which was later removed to reveal the sun. Memento Ink was used to  stamp along the horizon line using the images from Waterfront stamp set.  Then,  I restamped each image in Versamark and clear heat embossed so the images were clear, glossy and slightly raised with the texture from heat embossing. This piece was then cut into three panels to fit the back and sides of the Shadow Box card base. The waves were sponged with Coastal Cabana and stamped with the water image from Waterfront stamp set. To create waves, simply cut the Coastal Cabana sponged panel in a curvy pattern.

The two yachts and lighthouse were stamped then clear heat embossed. Stamping Blends were used to colour the images before before die cutting (a little bit of trimming with snips afterwards) and then adhered to the box card using Multi Purpose glue and mini dimensionals. To finish the card, four "rope" die cuts were adhered to the exterior along with a sentiment from the Memories and More card pack.

The final project I have to share is a little memento that looks wonderful as is (a necklace) or as an embellishment for a scrapbook page. The cabochon pieces can be purchased on eBay. Take the glass insert and trace around your chosen paper - I have used one of the smaller Memories & More cards. To this I have added a yacht sticker embellishment and then applied the required jewellery adhesive.

The Mini Pizza Boxes (item #144645) are perfect for gifting jewellery and this one was super simple to decorate with a few elements from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Cards.

Inside the box: a panel of card stock strips in blue tones with notches cut at the top for the necklace to fit snugly and then decorated with more elements from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.

Just Add Ink #461 - Add Inspiration

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Welcome to this week's Just Add Ink Challenge #461. We have a gorgeous inspiration picture for you to play along with. I love these kind of challenges as everyone interprets the picture so differently and the creations can be so varied.

To play along simply use the inspiration picture as your guide and go bonkers. I am often attracted to colour over anything else and before I even saw this was a street scene, I was immediately drawn to the yellow tones leaves on the trees.

Image may contain: outdoor

My card uses a colour combination of Daffodil Delight, Soft Sea Foam and Smokey Slate. I did originally want to use Silver Foil as well but it didn't fit the look I was after for the final creation.

I haven't made this style or a floating frame card for months and wanted to show how the often overlooked little stamps can do a fabulous job with this technique. You just need press n seal and some patience lol.



The images from Bloom n Grow stamp set and Butterfly Gala were all stamped with Memento ink and coloured using Stampin' Blends. All images excluding the butterfly were fussy cut (I used the punch for the butterfly). I decided I wanted a more free flowing look over a framed look so left the layout as is. Once all the pieces were in place, I stamped the sentiment in the center and finished the card with a few pearl embellishments dotted between the die cuts.

That's all from me today, crafty friends. Be sure to stop by all the Just Add Ink Design Team members blogs for more inspiration using this weeks challenge colours.

We would love for you and your crafty friends to play along, if you have a blog you can add your creation to the Just Add Ink gallery here. Don't have your own blog? No problem! Just send us an email  to  just-add-ink@hotmail.com with a photo attachment. We will upload it to our challenge entry blog for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Until next time stay awesome and stay crafty.



One Stamp At A Time - Something Old, Something New

Good Day Crafty Friends

Welcome to the One Stamp At A Time Blog Hop for June. This month the talented Design Team are celebrating the release of the new 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue with a cool theme for this Hop - Something Old & Something New


There are always loads of fabulous favourites that carry over and appear alongside all the new delights in the Annual Catalogue, today's Hop is all about showing our followers how to create projects by combining old and new products.

I have chosen to showcase the new 2019-2021 In Colour DSP Packs, teamed with my favourite carry over bundle - Tropical Chic. If you are not familiar with the new 2019-2021 In Colours, let me introduce you;


Now that you are acquainted with the new In Colours, lets have a look at what I have created to share with you today.


First up in my collection of projects is the card. This is a clean and simple layout using strips of DSP and the frangipani flower image stamped in the coordinating In Colours. I saw this marvelous card design on Instagram shared by Yessica Batista @makeamark16 and thought it is such a fabulously simple and effective way to showcase colour combinations.


Up next is a set of mini pocket cards.  I have used a 6"x 6" sheet of 2019-2021 In Colour DSP in all five colours and created little pocket cards with inserts. With the envelope punch board now retired, I reverted to creating the pockets with a scoreboard, snips and adhesive.


I love the scripty font on the new DSP Colour Family Packs and wanted to showcase how stunning it is in all five colours. The pocket fronts were kept fairly simple with a stitched circle die cut, two frangipani flowers to match the DSP colour and die cut foliage created with the Tropical dies and smoky slate card stock.


The inserts have been stamped with the sentiment and flower image from the Vibrant Vases stamp set. The offcut from creating the little pocket envelopes was used to line the insert. A small circle of In Colour card stock has been punched with the 1/2" circle punch and score in the centre. This circle was then adhere to the end of the insert and then punch with small hole punch. Whisper White Metallic Edge Ribbon and White Bakers Twine have been added to enable the receivers something to grab and pull the insert.


That is all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by and hopping with us. The One Stamp At A Time Design Team appreciate the time you have invested to visit our blogs and see the creations we have to share with you. Be sure to follow the hop all the way through for loads of inspiration using products from the new 2019 Annual Catalogue.
