Everything Points to You

Over the next three weeks I'll be showcasing the stamp set From All of Us with a card a week.  You'll love this set if you don't have it already!  To kick-start us off I've made a card for the Just Add Ink sketch challenge, #512.  For this challenge participants had to create a card based on this sketch:


 I had fun colouring in the little animals with my Blends and making the ostrich stand out in celebration.  Doesn't she look fabulous in Magenta Madness?  You can't see it in the photo but I added some Wink of Stella to her as well to make her sparkle on the page.


After I popped the circle up with dimensionals I added a sentiment strip (from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set) and some Elegant Faceted Gems for some bling. 


Don't you just love this bunch of cute animals?  There's a little turtle on the stamp too (who's slightly missing here) and the set is made up of some very useful trees and hearts as well as four sentiment stamps.

To make sure to cut each of the backing pieces to fit together you need to take three pieces of the same size cardstock in each of the three colours and cut them at the same time.  This means you actually make three backgrounds at once.  So I didn't want to waste my other two and made a couple of pretty cards using the Bloom and Grow stamp set.  

I just love how deep and colourful the Magenta Madness looks next to the Basic Grey and Smoky Slate.  I think this will be a favourite colour combo of mine for a while.


Please do pop over to the Just Add Ink challenge page here and take a look at what the design team have created for inspiration and all the other entries for this weeek.

Happy crafting,

    1. Hi Kath, I've included some in my blog post already :) In terms of where to cut, I just eyeballed it according to the sketch for the challenge, but you can of course make any kind of shapes you like!

    1. Thanks so much, Deli! I had fun colouring in the ostrich card to make her the celebration. Wish the Wink of Stella glitter effect showed up better in the photos.
