Just Add Blue for 'Beyond Blue'

Blue Potpourri

Last week it was PINK ... this week it's all about BLUE! The current challenge at Just Add Ink is to help promote the wonderful job that Beyond Blue (the National Depression Initiative) is doing.

So ... this challenge means that you can add BLUE to your papercraft project and then send it off to someone that could use a little 'pick me up'.

I chose to do a Scallop Circle Easel Card and since Marina Mist is the newest blue colour from Stampin' Up! I decided to team it with its 'Dynamic Duo' of Bashful Blue. I am preparing heaps of cards in the different 'Dynamic Duos' which you will see in some future posts!

A Scallop Easel Card is fun and very easy to make. I have written a TUTORIAL so you can have a go at making one too!

The All-Important Side View!

Be sure to visit the other Just Add Ink Team Blogs to see what gorgeous 'Blue' Creations they have for your inspiration this week.

Hi Bronwyn,

its looks gorgeous. So layered and feminine, I love the depth of detailing you put in and the scalloped easel card was a great Kimsetting for it all.
Love all of these cards Bronwyn.
You are so clever!
I don't have the scallop circle die but you are tempting me.
Thanks for doing such a great tutorial, will be very helpful when I eventually buy it.
I think the blue is my favourite, but they're all gorgeous.
