Just Add Ink #441 - Inspiration

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Welcome to Just Add Ink Challenge #441.  One of our Design Team members, Jo Stubbings,  has chosen the most divine Inspiration Photo for us all to play along with this week. 

Would you like to join us? Use the photo below as inspiration behind a new creation and share it with us at the Just Add Ink Challenge Blog. 

Aren't the colours in that photo just yummy....and those cupcakes....oh my!!!! I have taken inspiration for my cards from the soft pastel colour palette of the cupcakes icing/frosting. A rainbow of delicate pretty colours that reminds me of unicorns, or something a unicorn would eat lol.

I love the Subtle colour family - it was the first collection of Ink Pads and Card stock I purchased when I started stamping a few years ago. I just adore Pink - especially pastel Pink. And I love it teamed with Soft Sea Foam (swoon). This collection of cards uses colours from the Subtle colour family.

The first card I made was a little 4"x 4" note card. I had a piece of Soft Sea Foam left over from a previous project which I decided to score, fold in half and use as a card base.

Such a little cutie, but it looked so small and insignificant when I was taking the photos for this blog post, so I put the camera down, went back upstairs and quickly made two other cards that could accompany the little note card.

The water coloured hearts were left over from a project I didn't end up using - these were created using the Meant To Be Bundle.  I whipped the whisper white card front through the Big Shot with the Subtle Embossing Folder before adhering the Blushing Bride Stitched Rectangle die cut frame with foam strips.  A heat embossed sentiment from the Butterfly Gala has been added over the frame and die cut hearts.

I liked the colours and frame from the second card, I decided to repeat these elements in the third card. This time I used the Tufted Embossing Folder for the card front, which has been slightly cut down and lined with Gold Foil Card stock before adhering to the Whisper White card base. The gold heat embossed and water coloured images have been created using the Floral Frames Bundle and the heat embossed sentiment is from the Amazing Life Stamp Set.

  1. WOW, these cards are stunning, Jackie! I love the pop of black on the subtle colours, so dramatic and effective.
