Welcome to our latest challenge at Just Add Ink! This week Chantell has challenged us to add Thinking of You!


Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #505


Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #505


This climate we find ourselves in is a perfect time to send a 'Thinking of You' card! I was lucky enough to be able to order this new bundle Blossoms In Bloom as part of the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue preorder and it was perfect timing to be able to have a play with it because it suits the challenge perfectly!

Happy Tails Birthday

Jo's Stamping Spot - Happy Tails Birthday


Hi everyone! I'm quickly dropping in today to show you a card, one of two, I made for a very special birthday recently.

I remember looking at the then new 2019 Annual Catalogue and being so happy that there was a decent doggie stamp set. Yes, I loved the Bella & Friends stamp set, so cute, but this one was more realistic!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #503


Finally I am back with a new Just Add Ink challenge for you. This week we have a 'Choose Two' challenge suggested by Nikki!

This one, while I was struggling for time, thankfully came together pretty quickly. I chose pencils as one of my two and I think that is what took me the longest - the colouring in!

Puppy Watercolour Birthday!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Puppy Watercolour Birthday


I'm popping in quickly today to share a card I made for my gorgeous niece and her 14th birthday recently.

Those that know and follow me know we are lovers of Golden Retrievers. My mum used to breed them and owned 11 at one point, I'm on my third since I moved out of home some 20 years ago, and my sister is up to number 4. Here is a photo of some of our puppies taken in 2010.

Jo's Stamping Spot - Puppy Watercolour Birthday


So as a big puppy person I find it too hard to let go of the retired set Bella & Friends which I used for her card. I had to dig out an old retired colour, Hello Honey, to get a colour similar to a Retriever but all the others are current.

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #500 Blog Hop


Challenges don't get more simple than this one, a chance to stretch your creativity! I decided I wanted to have a play with the Painted Poppies suite because I hadn't already done so, plus my seriously gorgeous niece is having a birthday so this seemed just perfect to kill two birds with one card!

There are so many people we can and need to thank in the current climate, nurses, doctors, front line responders, even local heroes that may have helped you out in some small way. This hop is to give you some inspiration to make those 'Thank You' cards and send them out.

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #499

Paper Adventures Team Hop | Australia

Jo's Stamping Spot - Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop - Australia


Welcome! Today I am joining in a Guest Designer for my friend Kelly Kent's Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop! The theme for the hop is Australia, which is really suitable at the moment with Australia Day being on January 26 and all the horrible devastation that is happening here right now.

Jo's Stamping Spot - Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop - Australia


I decided to take inspiration from those horrible headlines surrounding the Australian bushfires for my card for this hop and I used the kangaroo and koala image from the Animal Outing stamp set, two animals which have really been impacted by our fires.

Just Add Ink #489 - Colour Challenge

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #489


Welcome to our latest Just Add Ink Challenge! This week we have a colour challenge for you with colours suggested by Rachael, and you get to choose which 3 you use!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #489


Jo's Stamping Spot - Just Add Ink Challenge #489


With so many gorgeous rich colours to choose from it was hard to pick just 3! In the end I chose Blueberry Bushel, Bermuda Bay and Call Me Clover, 3 colours which ordinarily I wouldn't put together!

Just Add Ink #488 - "Celebrate" Blog Hop

Jo's Stamping Spot - Juat Add Ink Challenge #488


Welcome to 2020 and a new year with Just Add Ink! We are kicking off the year with a blog hop and our theme is 'Celebration' in honour of our 10th year and also hitting 1000 followers on our Facebook page!

Jo's Stamping Spot - Juat Add Ink Challenge #488


Jo's Stamping Spot - Juat Add Ink Challenge #488


You may have hopped here from Nikki's blog or you may be starting the hop here but regardless I know you will be flawed by the Design Team's creations for our annual hop.

I wanted to use a new set for my project so I chose the Painted Poppies from the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue. With a thick Whisper White card base I popped in a Purple Posy layer to set off the watercoloured background. Not having the matching DSP yet this gave me a chance to play with colours for my poppies and I ended up using Blackberry Bliss and Blushing Bride, with Granny Apple Green for the leaves. I've set the colours off with some gold accents and the gorgeous Flax ribbon.
