Just Add Ink #410 - Inspiration - Stitched All Around

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Welcome to this weeks Just Add Ink Challenge #410 - Just Add Inspiration. Can you believe we are almost half way through the year already? And, can you believe this is my 200th post!! Wahoo to me. Not bad considering I stared my blog in February last year and didn't know how to enter challenges or blog hop! My oh my how times have changed lol. I even put on my girl panties today and sent off my application for the Stampin' Up! 2019 Artisan Team! 

Anywho, enough about me - lets get back to the Challenge. The Just Add Ink Design Team have the most delicious inspiration picture for you to play along with this week. Wish my bedroom was as bright and colourful as the one below - don't think Hubby would appreciate it though, he may think its a tad too

I have two cards to share today. For the first card, I picked a few of the colours from the inspiration picture to create the cards background panels - Flirty Flamingo, Pineapple Punch, Pool Party and Grapefruit Grove.

I added a few die cuts created using the new Stitched All Around Framelits. White Bakers Twine has been threaded through the circular die cut, tied off to the left in a bow. Pineapple Punch ribbon has been placed on top of the Bermuda Bay Banner and tucked underneath the sentiment is some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

My second card uses the new Accented Blooms stamp set. I wasn't going to order this set until later in the year, but I am so glad I didnt wait. It may just be one of my new favies.

Onto shimmery White card, I splashed some Pineapple Punch and Lemon Lime Twist inks with an Aqua Painter. The Accented Blooms stamp was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured using Stampin' Blends. I have fussy cut and raised the image on foam strips.

The border stamp from Stitched All Around has been stamped onto Whisper White and fussy cut. A Gold Foil banner and Doily were tucked under the stamped images to finish off the card.

The Design Team at Just Add Ink have created some absolute stunners to inspire you. Be sure to check them all out - there are a few sneak peaks of new products and just all round amazingly beautiful projects.
