Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #470


Welcome to another challenge for Just Add Ink! This week I challenged the team to create a project with 'No Stamping'!

This challenge turned out harder than I imagined and I thought it would be pretty easy! No stamping backgrounds, no stamping for colouring, it was harder than I thought to actually not stamp a thing!

Just Add Ink #468 - Just Add 'C'

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #468


Welcome back to another new challenge for Just Add Ink! This week Tina has suggested we add 'C' to our projects!

I found this letter much easier to work with than some of the other recent letters. There are lots of 'C' items I could have used ranging from colours, to Christmas, to cows, colouring and stamp sets. The 'C' items I ended up using were Coastal Cabana and cupcakes!

I fell in love with this combination the moment I saw it, I think mostly because it is soooo not me! I really had a hard time choosing what I wanted to use for my project but in the end I went simple and mostly created my own!

I think we were aiming for Christmas in July with this picture but I've totally gone a different way because I just don't think about Christmas so early!

It's been quite a while since I have entered any challenges and having a bit of spare time on my hands this week I really wanted to give this one a crack because the colours are just so darned lovely!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #462


Hmm, so many choices with this sketch! I could have used striped paper or done strips of colour but I decided to just wing it and see what came together!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #460


Welcome back and happy Friday! We've got a great challenge for you this week at Just Add Ink - we've been asked by Lou to do the Emboss Resist technique!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #460


Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #460


Most of the time the Emboss Resist technique is done with ink pads and sponge daubers over white embossing but I decided to try something new with watercolouring!

Just Add Ink #458 - Letter Challenge

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #458


Wow, the end of another week is upon us, I can't believe how fast this year is flying by! Regardless, we have a new challenge running from today over at Just Add Ink and for this challenge Tina has suggested we add one of the last remaining letters in our letter challenges - Q, X, Y or Z!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #458


Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #458


I am glad these letters were bundled together to pick from - so NOT easy! I have very little in my stash for any of these letters and my first attempt was going to be a quilt-looking card but yeah, it didn't come together. So the result of my second attempt at one of these letters is my card below.

Immediately for this challenge I thought of using the Daisy Delight bundle but nothing I tried seemed to come out right. I decided to change the stamp set and then the card literally made itself!

I have plenty of birthdays in March and April to keep me well occupied making cards! This is one of the many birthday cards I have made this month.

Just Add Ink #452 - Sketch Challenge

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #452


Wow, are we getting through this year or what?! Can you believe it's April already? Well it's Friday again and that means it's new challenge time at Just Add Ink! This week we have a sketch challenge from Tina!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #452


Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #452


I really love a good sketch because not only can I choose what supplies I use but you have to get really creative! For this challenge I've opened a new set called Butterfly Gala. You've probably seen it everywhere as it has been one of the most popular bundles in the Occasions catalogue!

Just Add Ink #450 - Just Add Babies

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #450

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #448


Welcome to our latest Just Add Ink challenge! This week we have another letter challenge for you, Tina has asked us to add 'J' to our projects!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #448


Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #448


I have to admit this challenge really stumped me! The only 'J' thing I had in my supplies was the Jar of Love stamp set so I had to get creative for this one!

Just Add Ink #446 - Just Add Inspiration

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #446


Wow, can you believe we are into March already! Today starts another new challenge at Just Add Ink and it is an Inspiration Challenge suggested by Rachael!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #446


Isn't it a colourful picture! Lots of beautiful bright colours to work with! For my card I took inspiration from the flowers and the lovely yellows and oranges and reds.

I've been using a lot of Poppy Parade lately, actually I think for my last 3 Just Add Ink projects! This week I went for something really girly and fun!
