Just Add Ink #612 | Just Choose Two Challenge

 Hello there my craft friends! Today we over at Just Add Ink have another creative challenge for you. This week its a fantstic Just Chose Two Challenge, chosen by Just Add Ink team member Kim Badelt - Just Add Ink #612 | Just Choose Two Challenge.  

This week's Just Choose Two challenge is a real mixed bag with us choosing from Fur, Clouds or Stitching. I love anything to do with stitching on cards, faux or real, so that was a no brainer for me and then my most recent Stampin' Up! order with the new Storybook Gnome DSP helped me to choose fur with the gorgeous images of the woodland animals.

I've kept the card fairly CAS (Clean and Simple). I'm really loving clean lines and clean cards at the moment. There is beauty in the simplicity of the card and to sometimes pull back from all the 'fluff and stuff' really lets the products shine and in this case lets the DSP shine.

I've started the card with some Basic White layers and then used the pattern from the Storybook Gnome DSP that looks like a knitted jumper or cross stitch/embroidery. This was another element, along with the Stitched Rectangles, to add to my 'stitched' element. Well, I think it looks like it has stitching on it so that is all that matters.

This is the super cute Stampin' Up! Storybook Gnome DSP. If you could only pick one thing from this suite then this DSP would be it. There is so much you can do with it and the artwork in this DSP is fantastic.

The animals for my fur element were fussy cut from this sheet of the DSP. Just cut them out and them add them to your card and you have a quick and simple card done in no time. Aren't these animals just super cute?

I've really kept my embellishments on this card super simple with some Balmy Blue & White Double-Stitched Ribbon (another stitched element) and some Linen Thread. If you were to recreate this card then you could keep it CAS like what I did or really step it up. It all comes down to personal choice.

There are lots of AMAZING creations from the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team on the JAI Blog. Go and check out to see what 'two' elements they all used this week and then while you are there you can see how you can enter your project. Can't wait to see what 'two' you used. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
