Stampendous 'Owl Clock' for The Scrapbook Store

My card this week is all about the gorgeous Owl Clock image from Stampendous which I recently picked up from The Scrapbook Store! After colouring it and layering up parts of the image I didn’t feel that it needed any further embellishment. These large stamps are great for making a statement!Stampendous Owl Clock copy

Just Add Ink Challenge #306 - Just Add Sympathy



This week's challenge over at Just Add Ink will be my last challenge as a member of the JAI Design Team. After 6 awesome years I have decided to step down, and would like to thank the wonderful design team for their friendship and support, and the participants who have taken the time to visit my blog and leave me such lovely comments.

So I guess since this is a bit of a sad occasion, it seems fitting that our challenge theme this week is 'Sympathy'.



Supplies:
Stamps and Dies: My Favorite Things
Other: Versamark Ink, Copic Markers, white embossing powder, White ink

Just Add Ink #304 - Inspiration Challenge

I can't believe it's Easter already!  I don't know about you, but I'm hoping to get lots of time in my craft room over the next few days while indulging in a little chocolate of course.

And for a bit of Easter card making inspiration Just Add Ink has a fun challenge for you.


I went pretty literal with my interpretation of the image, using balloons in the same colours. But remember that you can use any part of this image that inspires you!


Supplies:
Stamps: My Favorite Things 'All Heart'
Dies: My Favorite Things 
Other: Copic Markers
