Just Add Ink Challenge # 25

Too Cute to Handle


There's a colour challenge on this week at Just Add Ink . I found the colour combo a little tricky and then re-read my notebook to discover that it was one of my suggestions! Ooops! No-one to blame but myself!



This week's Colour Combo



The card evolved from me wanting to use the cute Rose Red coloured Designer Hardware from the 'Hooray' collection (Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue) as a starting point! The sentiment then led me to use the little tea cup stamp called, 'Share a Cup'. It's one of my favourite stamps and so versatile! ... and so the design 'blossomed' from there. The little flowers coming from the cup are attached to small lengths of florist wire.





Project Recipe:

Stamp Sets: One of a Kind, Share a Cup
Ink: Rose Red, Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant
Cardstock: RR, SS, EE and Very Vanilla
Accessories: 1/2" SS Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Sizzlits Little Leaves Die, 5-Petal Flower and Boho Blossoms Punches, Flower Fusion, Hooray Designer Hardware, Clear Rhinestone Brad, Dimensionals, Stamping Sponge, Scallop Circle Die, Perfect Polka Dots SU Embossing Folder, Florist Wire


I hope you get a chance to play along this week! I'll be back for Just Add Ink in a fortnight and in the meantime I'll be busy making cards for Lisi's Miss Vintage Shop! ... and maybe the odd challenge or two if time permits!


PS: This one made it into the Late Night Stampers' Blog Finds of the Day - July 10! Thanks heaps, Kelly. Your blog is a great resource!

This is such a happy card, Bron; it brings a smile to my face every time I look at it. LOVE the little flowers coming out of the cup, and the way you've used the hardware, bling and flowers is gorgeous. LOVE it. (I, for one, thought this colour combo was great, LOL.)

Saw this over at StampinConnection, but I was in a hurry and didn't get to say how GORGEOUS this is!

If it wasn't so late at night I would be CASEing this right now...
