CASology 161 - PLAID

Hi there and welcome to addINKtive designs . Today I'm sharing a card that I demoed for a small group of grade 9/10 students. Every Wednesday I take a 'study' group; it consists of a handful of students that have chosen not to do Automotive or Sport's Leaders as one of their electives. I try and mix it up each week and do a variety of activities.  Their English teacher had asked if I could get them to make some Thank You Cards for guest speakers and other visitors etc. He didn't have to 'twist my arm' to get me to bring my favourite hobby into the classroom. The brief was to keep the cards fairly clean and simple, (CAS) and I provided a limited amount of stamps, punches and ink and a large supply of washi tape (I had a bit of a thing about washi back in 2012 and have quite a collection hoard). Here's one card that I ' demoed ' -   I had the latest CASology Challenge in mind when I chose to use this PLAID fabric washi that was in my

A Spec-tacular New Adventure

My niece needed a card for one of the optometrists at her work as she is moving back home to Brisbane.  This was the 'design brief' - I want an extra special card for everyone to write in It needs to be A5 size or a little bigger and say something along the lines of "good luck with your new adventure" As hipster as possible She likes mustard, grey and navy blue tones Thanks to a great Silhouette Cutting File and some awesome SU stamps, embossing folders and DSP, I think I managed to tick all the boxes; very hipster don't you think?  You can't go wrong with chevrons!    Colour Palette - Basic Gray, Delightful Dijon and Night of Navy   To complete the project, a very large envelope was made using the Envelope Punch Board - such an awesome tool! Thanks for stopping by,

CASEing the Everyday Section of the Catty

Welcome to add ink tive designs and another Friday Night Blog Hop for CASEing the Catty!   This week we are CASEing our way through the Everyday Section of the Stampin' Up! Catalogue.  It's the largest chapter in the annual catty so it was difficult to decide on which project I was going to use for inspiration.  I finally settled on the card from page 99; changed the whole colour scheme and used a different embossing folder and stamps.   It just so happens that the card fitted nicely into a couple of my favourite challenges and seeing I haven't made a card for three whole weeks, I am 'milking it for all it's worth'! I just hope I can get some other projects done before the end of the weekend.   CTC 42 - Everyday 1.   SUO Challenges #128 - Butterflies! SUO Challenges - For this challenge, create a project, using Stampin’ Up! products only, that features Butterflies – one or a whole bunch – but certainly make the butterfly the highlight!
