Just Add Ink have a colour challenge this week.  My son’s birthday will be in the coming week and I thought these colours would be great for the mini clipboard I was going to decorate for him.

Stamps: Extreme Elements, Beware Pirates (retired)
Paper:   Garden Green,  Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Ink: Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Garden Green
Accessories:  Mini Clip Board, Notepad, Tombow Glue, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet die, pen

I started with a mini clipboard 12.5 cm x 19.3 cm.  I adhered some Early Espresso Cardstock to the mini clipboard with Tombow glue.  I then covered a notepad with some Garden Green cardstock.  Next, I adhered some Marina Mist cardstock to a notepad that came with the mini clipboard.  I stamped some Whisper White cardstock using one of the stamps from the Extreme Elements stamp set, using Marina Mist and Early Espresso Ink.  I adhered the stamped Whisper White cardstock to the Marina Mist cardstock that I adhered previously to the Notepad.  I stamped  one of the stamps from the Beware Pirate stamp set on to a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I flicked the edges of the cardstock along the Marina Mist stamp pad to distress the edges slightly.  I then trimmed some Early Espresso to mount behind the Whisper White cardstock and then adhered it to the Notepad.  I also trimmed a strip of Marina Mist cardstock to form a loop for the pen and adhered it to the side of the back page of Notepad.  This keeps the pen with the notepad.  I then clipped the finished notepad to the clipboard.  To finish off the clipboard,  I adhered some Marina Mist letters for my son’s name.  I had cut out the letters using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet die.

 There you have my take on this week’s challenge.  I now have to make a few more for my son’s friends that he invited to his birthday party next week.  I thought they would make nice surprises in the party gift bags.  I got the Notepad, Clipboard and pen for $2 dollars at a little shop down in Lilydale.

This is my second post for today which is surprising since for the last few weeks I have been busy making Christmas cards and decorations for my home and havent had much time to blog.  Anyway, this post is for the Just Add Ink – Bah Humbug Challenge. 

For this Challenge I made 2 Christmas Tags and a Petal Cone Christmas Tree. 

For the Tags, I used the Two Tags die, Very Vanilla cardstock, Jolly Holiday DSP and some ribbon.  For the images I used the Owl Punch and the Stocking Punch, the Stitched Stocking stampset and the To and From is from one of the stamps from the Gifted stamp set. 

Stamps:  Gifted  Paper:  Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Jolly Holiday DSP, Whisper White (for the eyes and pom-pom on hat), Chocolate Chip (for the eyes) Ink: Chocolate Chip Accessories:  Owl Punch, Butterfly Punch, Large Oval Punch, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, 1/2 ” Circle Punch, Scallop Oval Punch.

For the Petal Cone Christmas Tree I used the Petal Cone die to cut two panels for the cone.  To make the layers for the tree, I trimmed Scallop Circles which I daubered with Old Olive.  For the tree trunk I used Early Espresso cardstock which I daubered with Cherry Cobbler ink.  To finish off the tree I added the bird from the Merry Details die.  On the back of the cone, I used the Owl Punch with the Butterfly Punch, Large oval Punch and the Scallop circle Punch to make the elf owl.

Just Add Ink have a Colour Challenge this week.  When I first looked at the colours I was thinking about making a Father’s Day card, as these colours would be perfect for a masculine card.  However, I decided that I  have been neglecting the displaying of photos of my children so I made a squash book.  The instructions for the squash book are on the Splitcoaststampers website. 

Stamps: Fox and Friends, Basic Phrases
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Old Olive, Haiku DSP (retired)
Ink: Night of Navy, Chocolate Chip
Accessories:  Owl Punch, I heart heart punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Extra Large Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, Cropadile, Butterfly Punch, Itty Bitty Punches, Timeless Type Junior alphabet, Small Star Punch, Word Window Punch,Old Olive Ribbon, 9 x9 cm (3 1/2″) coasters, towbow glue

I started with two 9 x 9 cm (3 1/2″) coasters which you can get from most craft stores.  I had some laying in the drawer.  I adhered the Chocolate Chip cardstock to the coasters using Tombow Glue.  I scored 3 pieces of cardstock and joined them together.  I used Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand and Old Olive (I ran out of Certainly Celery).  Once I had folded the layers to form the squash book.  I added photos, punches, DSP and cardstock to decorate the inside.  I also added the first letter for each of my children’s name and the sentiment ‘family’ from the Basic Phrases stampset.


 For the front and the back of the squash book I added layers of Night of Navy, Old Olive, Sahara Sand and Haiku DSP.  When I adhered them to the front and the back I made sure that I did not adhere the ribbon to the base, so that it can slide when you open the squash book.  To finish of the book, I stamped the Owl from the Fox and Friends stamp set and punched it out using the 1 1/4″ circle punch.  I mounted this on a 1 3/4″ Circle and an extra-large Scallop Circle.

 There you have my take on this week’s challenge.  I hope you don’t mind that I substituted the Certainly Celery with the Old Olive.

I decided to combine two Challenges today.  Just Add Ink are asking for a project made in the colours of your favourite Chocolate.  At this time of year my favourite Chocolates are small Cadbury Easter Eggs :).  They come in various colours so I picked a small green one for my inspiration.  The other Challenge I am participating in, is one from the girls at Double Dutch.  They are asking for participants to create an Easter basket.  For these Challenges, I started with a Whisper White template of the Sweetie Pouch that is on the Waltzing Mouse Stamps site.  I then cut out a copy of the template( without the base) using Cottage Wall DSP.  I adhered the DSP to the outside of the Whisper White Template.  Using the Scallop Trim Border Punch, I trimmed the top edges of the pouch.  To make the pouch I then adhered the edges  of the  base together with Double Sided Tape as well as adhering the front of the pouch.  I then punched out a series of  different sized Scallop Circles and  I stamped the words ‘For You’ from the Basic Phrase stamp set using Pear Pizzaz ink.  I punched out the sentiment using the 1 3/8″ inch Circle Punch.  I adhered the scallop circles and the circle together and finished it off with adding Dazzling Diamonds, a small heart and small punched out circles from the Owl Punch.  I added the sentiment to the pouch using foam pads.  I then filled the pouch with mini easter eggs and finished off with come cellophane and Old Olive Satin Ribbon.  I then decided to make a card to go with the pouch, because what is a gift without a card :).

Sorry my photos are not better.  I will have to take them again in the morning as the flash seems to have flashed out the colours.

It has been sometime since I last participated in a Double Dutch Challenge and I may have left my entry a little late as the Challenge closes today.  For their challenge they are asking for participants to make a Tea Box.  I followed the instruction below for the box : (The instruction are also on their site)

– Cut two strips of cardstock at 21 x 7 cm (8.3 x 2.8″) and score them at 7 and 14 cm (2.8and 5.5″)
– The strips now have three squares each, place one on top of the other like a cross and stick the center squares together
– Fold the four flaps up and make a lid to cover them. I cut an 11,2 cm square (4.4″) and scored at 2 cm all around (0.8″). Fold on the score lines, make incisions to create glue tabs, stick together and your lid is done. But it’s totally up to you, this is just a guideline!
– Decorate the box, add the tea bags. 
For the box I used two strips of Always Artichoke textured cardstock.  Once I put the box together, I then added highlight panels.  I cut five 6.5 cm x 6.5 cm Early Espresso cardstock and then five 6cm x 6cm pieces of Elegant Soiree DSP.  I punched out an owl using Basic Black, Whisper White and Always Artichoke cardstock as well as some Elegant Soiree DSP.  I mounted the owl on to an extra-large Always Artichoke Scallop Circle.  Inside the box I added four strips Always Artichoke, that I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch on the bottom edge.  I then stamped the Homemade stamp with Chocolate Chip ink and covered the centre image with the Heartfelt Thanks greeting from the Hodgepodge Happiness stampset.  I added a Chocolate Chip heart and 4 Always Artichoke circles to the image and adhered the Scallop Circle to the centre of the inside of the box.  The box is going to be a surprise for my husband when he gets home from work tonight.  I will also be adding his favourite chocolate wafer biscuits, which are not in the photo.

For this weeks Inkspirations Colour Challenge I thought I would do something a little different.  Last week I bought some STAMP-ON-FABRIC paper from Denielle Bernauer and I thought I would use some of  that paper and this week  colour challenge to make a T-shirt for my eldest daughter.  I started by selecting the Bliss stampset and the Organic Outlines stampset.  From the Bliss stampset I stamped three butterflies using Rose Red and Garden Green (sorry I don’t have any Wild Wasabi ink) markers and So Saffron Ink.  I stamped the images on to the STAMP-ON-FABRIC paper and then trimmed the images.  I placed the images on to the T-shirt to form a row of Butterflies.  I then stamped the Words Happy for you from the Organic Outlines stampset using a Rose Red marker.  With stamping, I stamped it onto the flat side of the sheet of film that comes with the Stampamajig.  I then press the Stampamajig sheet against the STAMP-ON-FABRIC paper and went over the stamped words with the marker to make sure the writing stood out.  I trimmed around the writing and placed it under the butterflies.  To adhered the stamped images to the T-shirt, I ironed then until they were set and peeled off the backing.  With using the STAMP-ON-FABRIC it is always best to work on a test piece first as it allows you to understand who long you need to iron.  Also remember to put a board under the fabric to make sure the image adheres evenly.  This is really a simple process and lots of fun to do.  I would like to thank my daughter Alex for  modelling  the T-shirt for her sister.

Stamps: Bliss, Organic Outlines

TShirt: White
Ink:  Rose Red marker, So Saffron, Garden Green marker

I like to make things in advance for Christmas and when I was on Julie Buhler’s website I came across a tutorial for a really sweet treat box.  I just had to make it and I thought I would use the new Jolly Holiday DSP.  For the treat boxes, I followed Julie’s instructions, but because I don’t have a Stampin Up cozzule I used the Fiskars Oval template to make the oval cut out on the dsp and the card stock.  I also decided to use the Scallop Trim border for the lid of the box and I made an acetate window with the Sizzix Oval die.  To finish off the Old Olive treat box I used the Contempo Christmas ornament and Old Olive ribbon.  For the Early Espresso box I made a Christmas Owl Elf, by making an Elf hat using the butterfly punch and dressing him in a combination of Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  The pom-pom on the hat is one of the eyes that was cut out from the Very Vanilla Owl that I punched.  I finished off the box with Early Espresso ribbon.

 Stampin’ Royalty have a new challenge this week and they are asking for Anything But a Card.  I have been meaning to start making some small Christmas gifts for friends and thought this was an opportune time to start making some desk calendars.  For the calendar I made, I decided to add some sliding pictures so that the recipient can change the theme of the calendar as the months pass.  When the panels are not in use they can go neatly into the small sliding drawer.  I have only highlighted three panels in the photos.  “To you from me” will be the initial panel that I will be using when giving the calendars, I used hearts for the month of February and flowers for Spring. 

Sorry the photos are not clearer.  I am not used to using my husband’s camera and its a bit of trial and error at the moment :(.  He took the camera that I normally use.

Just Add Ink Challenge this week is a colour challenge.  Real Red, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake(Kraft).  For this challenge I decided to make a card and a small gift.  For the card I started with a base card in Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered a strip of real red cardstock and then a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock, which I had punched with the Scallop border punch, to the base card.  I then trimmed a piece of Crumb Cake(Kraft) cardstock which I embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder.  I adhered the embossed Crumb Cake to the base card and then stamped the birthday greeting from the Happy Moments stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink.  With a Fiskars Oval template, I traced out a large oval which I then cut out using a pair of scissors.  I stamped the large oval with one of the stamps from the Vintage Vogue stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink and adhered to the centre of the card.  I then punched out three flowers using the new stampin up punch and a scrap piece of Holiday Treasures DSP.  I punched out a Chocolate Chip flower and 3 more flowers using Real Red cardstock.  With the punched flowers, I trimmed them and then shaped them to form two flowers.  With the DSP flower, I used Chocolate chip in the centre to add a bit of contrast.  I adhered the DSP flower to the centre of the oval, to finish off the card.  For the gift, I started by trimming a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. I stamped the edges of the Very Vanilla cardstock with the border stamp from the Vintage Vogue stampset using Chocolate chip ink.  I then added a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock and a piece of Crumb Cake(Kraft) cardstock.  To finished off the soap gift I attached the 2nd flower I made.

Just Add Ink Challenge this week is Just Add … Wheels.  These wheels can be Stamp images, punches, Stampin-Around wheels – if it’s circular it fits the criteria!  For this challenge I decided to make pinwheels.  Pinwheels are such simple things and children enjoy immensely.  I thought it would be nice idea for this challenge, since this challenge is for Hudson.  I started with 4 pieces of various pink Pattern Pack II dsp that I trimmed to 4″ by 4″ inches.  I then cut a 1 1/2″ diagonal line in each corner and then used the cropadile to punch a pole  in the centre of the paper square and in one of the corners of each diagonal section.  I bought to long sticks from Spotlight, which I trimmed in half to make 4 medium size stick.  I then used a drawing pin to make a hole near the top portion of the 4 sticks.  I then used a small brad to pass through the hole in the centre of the paper and into the hole in the stick.  I then punched four flowers using the Spring Bouquet punch and punched a hole in the centre of these flowers using the cropadile.  I then inserted a rhinestone brad into the centre of the flower and then each of the corners of the dsp to form a pinwheel.   My daughter absolutely loves these and wants to give them to her friends for her birthday at the end of the month. 

Paper: Patterns Pack II DSP
Accessories: Circle Fire and Circle Ice Rhinestone brads, silver brads, Sticks, drawing Pin, Spring Bouquet Punch
