Just Add Ink #376 | Just Add 'D'

Hello and welcome! Another week down and another Friday to bring you a new Just Add Ink Challenge - Just Add 'D'.

Any thing that begins with 'D' - Daisies, Dogs, Dots, Diagonals, Dragonflies or your favourite product that begins with 'D'. The possibilities are endless as long as it begins with the letter 'D'.

I've pulled out the Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. Even though this set has been around for a little bit now it still is fun to stamp with and makes fabulous cards.

I've gone with a very neutral colour palette today - Basic Black, Whisper White and Crumb Cake with a little pop of Gold. I do love me a netural palette. While it doesn't have all those bright and fun colours to pack that punch, it has that subtle elegance with it's subtle colours.

I stamped the dot image all around the edge using Crumb Cake Classic Ink onto Crumb Cake Cardstock and then pulled out the fun black ink splatter using the Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. Super easy to do and just adds another dimension and layer to any card.

The Dragonfly was first inked up with Versamark and then Black Memento Ink, stamped down and then heat embossed with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. Everything looks better with some heat embossing, right?  I love it!

I've teamed up the dragonfly with some ribbon and trim from the Annual and New Holiday Catalogue. Loving that Black and White Striped Ribbon. It's new in the Holiday catalogue. It's just stunning! I'm loving it though to use not only on Christmas creations but on everything else as well. The striped ribbon is a bit wider than what is seen here on my card today. I trimmed the edges off the ribbon so that it would be a better size for my card today. Tip for Today - If your ribbon is too wide for your creation just trim it down.
