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.

Stamps:  Basic Phrases

Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Cottage Wall DSP (retired)

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.
Stamps: Homemade, Hodgepodge Happiness
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, Elegant Soiree DSP
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Extra Large Scallop  Circle Punch,  1 3/4″ Circle Punch, Owl Punch, Itty Bitty Circle Punch, Scallop Trim Border

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
Accessories:  STAMP-ON-FABRIC, Hot Iron, Stampamajig Film

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.


Stamps: Contempo Christmas
Paper: Old Olive, Jolly Holiday DSP
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler 
Accessories:  Fiskars Oval template, Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Acetate, Sizzix Ovals die.
