Just Add Ink #264....Sketch!



Woohoo!....It's Friday and that means it's a new challenge over at Just Add Ink. This week Kim has provided us with an awesome "CAS" sketch to work with.
I really love the clean lines and simple elements and tried not to deviate to far from that in style. I'm having a bit of a Navy phase at the minute and felt that teamed with Lot's of white and a pop of gold, it was the perfect colour for a crisp clean card.


The DT have created some great inspiration using the sketch, so don't forget to stop by the challenge blog and check them out.

One More Stippled Blossoms!


I just couldn't resist one more "Stippled Blossoms" creation before it's gone forever..:0( It's super simple in style, but perfect for a little note l wanted to send. I love the combination of Old Olive/White/Kraft & Blackberry Bliss, it's quite bold, but works well together.

Indescribable Gift...


Afternoon lovelies, I thought l would share this sweet card using the "Indescribable Gift" set. I had a little fun with water colouring on this one, using Rich Razzleberry & Pear Pizzazz. I kept it simple, keeping the focus on the image and was pretty pleased with the finished look.

Happy Friday peeps, l hope you all have a fun weekend planned..:0) This week over at Just Add Ink, the lovely Jan McQueen has challenged us to "Just Add Weddings" to our projects!

Mint Macaron Gift Bag!


Morning! As promised I'm back to share the second gift bag l created with the fun new "Gift Bag" punch board from Stampin Up!
It's basically the same as my previous post with smaller dimensions..:0)



For this Mint gift bag, l used the same steps with 2 x 8-1/4" x 7-3/4" pieces of cardstock.

Instructions:
1. Line up the 8-1/4" side of the cardstock @ the start line, punch & score on sideline-horizontal line- V & center gusset lines.
2. Line up the sideline score mark and punch again.
3. Slide cardstock along so the right hand edge of your cardstock is flush with the right side of the punch board & "SCORE ONLY"@ the medium scoreline (do not punch).
4. Continue to score all the way along the "Horizontal" line.
5. Slide the medium scoreline all the way across to the start line & "PUNCH ONLY" (do not score).
6. Repeat all 5 steps on the second piece of cardstock.

Assembled box size: W:4-7/8" H:7" D:2"
(This size is perfect for gifting a card & envelope set) It holds approx 10 of each.

Gift Bag Punch Board!


I don't know about you, but I'm a little addicted to these fun "Punch Boards" and the new Gift Bag board is a little bit fun to play with..:0)
I started by making the standard sizes that the board suggests, but then l thought l'd have a go at making some more substantial sizes and here's what l came up with!




This black one uses 2 x A4 cardstock. I've included a simple how to below.
Assembled box size:W: 8-7/8" H: 7" D:2"

Instructions:
1. Line up the 8-1/4" side of the cardstock @ the start line, punch & score on sideline-horizontal line- V & center gusset lines.
2. Line up the sideline score mark and punch again.
3. Slide cardstock along so the right hand edge of your cardstock is flush with the right side of the punch board & "SCORE ONLY"@ the medium scoreline (do not punch).
4. Continue to score all the way along the "Horizontal" line.
5. Slide the medium scoreline all the way across to the start line & "PUNCH ONLY" (do not score).
6. Repeat all 5 steps on the second piece of cardstock.


You now have a back & front, you're ready to put it together & decorate!
 I used some "NEW" yummy's on my tags. The RMDH set called "Sprinkles of life" & the coordinating "Tree builder" punch and "Build a Birthday" set.

Don't forget to check back, as l will be sharing a second gift bag made with Mint Macaron..:0)
