Just Add Ink Challenge # 89

This week, Just Add Ink have an inspiration challenge.  I used the challenge to make a telescoping circles card for my husband’s niece.  I  have seen a few of these cards on the internet a few months ago and I have been meaning to make one and I thought it would go nicely with my new beautiful wings embosslit die.  I started with the Scallop Circle die to cut out a black scallop circle.  With the Scissor Circle plus, I cut out two 3 1/2″ Whisper White Circles, one 3″ Pumpkin Pie Circle and then one 2 1/2″ Whisper White circle.  I decorated the circles and joined them using red brads.  Remember that with the centre circle, if you have images or writing, it needs to be upside down if you want it to be right side open when the card is open.

For this week’s Just Add Ink Challenge, Just Add a die cut, I decided to use the Scallop Circle die to make Christmas Decorations, which I am going to use for gift vouchers.  The idea comes from a You Tube clip that I viewed made by Angie Kennedy Juda .  I cut out 2 Cherry Cobbler ,  2 Lucky Limeade and 2 Night of Navy scallop circles and then  I used the Scissor Circle Plus to cut out 2 Very Vanilla 4″ Circles and 1 Whisper White 4″ Circle.  With the 6 Scallop Circles, I put 3 aside and the other 3, I cut in half to make voucher pockets to put behind the Scallop Circles.  I then decorated the 4″ circles and before adhering the circles to the base scallop circles, I attached some ribbon in between so I can hang the decorations.  I am going to use these decorations for my children.

Christmas With All the Trimmings

I decided to combine this weeks Clean and Simple sketch and Just Add Ink’s colour Challenge.


I thought the two would work well with my new Stocking Punch and Stitched Stocking stamp set.  I started with a base card made from Pool Party cardstock.  I then added a layer of embossed Whisper White cardstock, followed by a strip of Pool Party cardstock.  I then added a layer of Whisper White Cardstock that had a piece of Scalloped Trimmed Pool Party adhered to the bottom.  I then added a strip of Calypso Coral.  Next, I stamped three stocking which I punched out and then I punched out a Pool Party, Whisper White and Crumb Cake Stockings.  I adhered the tops of the stocking to the stamped stocking and the toe and heel to the Calypso Coral stocking.  I added the stocking to the card using foam pads.  I then added the stamped sentiment from Contempo Christmas, mounted on a piece of Pool Party cardstock.  To finish off the card, I added a border, which I should have done before I stuck everything down, since it’s a bit wonky.  Now its a bit rustic.
