Just Add Ink | JAI #547 Inspiration Challenge

Hello stamping friends! Happy Friday! Another Friday means it's time for a new Just Add Ink Challenge - Just Add Ink | JAI #547 Inspiration Challenge. We've got a fun Easter wreath as our inspiration this week, so you could make an Easter inspired project, use some of the colours from the inspiration or even a fun wreath. Whatever inspires you from the picture.

 I picked out some of the colours from the inspiration picture for a pretty striped butterfly birthday card. I've used mostly colours from the Stampin' Up! Subtles colour family with one or two others to make a soft rainbow look and then layered the stunning butterfly dies, Brilliant Wings, for a gorgeous butterfly card.

I cut 1cm strips of the coloured cardstock for the fun striped background. From left to right the colours I used are - Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron, Petal Pik, Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral. How gorgeous are al those colours together? Pretty!!!

To make the Basic White Frame I placed two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies inside each other and then ran them through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine together so as they both cut at once. The stitched elements on the bordering frame really give that little bit of added interest with out adding more layers and elements.

 I've finished off the card with a simple Gold embossed 'Happy Brithday and then a scattering of the Basic Rhinestones. I love the beautiful soft colours in this and then the layering of the crisp and bright white. 

The Just Add Ink Design Team have lots of amazing creations for you and to show you what inspired them. You'll be surprised at all the different projects we came up with. We hope that you'll join in this weeks challenge. I can't wait to see you join in and to see what has inspired you this week.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
