Just Add Ink #10 and Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #20 - Happy Easter

Hi all,

I have finally managed to get another entry ready for Just Add Ink. This week was a colour challenge, and here are the colours:

I decided to use this week's Inkspirations Sketch as well:

And here is the card I made:

I wanted to make an Easter card featuring the cross, and these colours were just perfect. I added a tiny bit of Very Vanilla for the sentiment, and I think it'd look better with a Vanilla image panel as well (instead of the extra Blush Blossom).

I used some flowers punched out with my Boho Blossoms punch for the detail on the cross, taking inspiration from the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue (the card in there uses Flower Fusion, but I needed different colours!)

Make sure you pop on over to check out the other entries (follow the links in this post or in my sidebar) and also check back here tonight for some exciting news!

Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless noted):

Stamps: Special Blessing, Teeny Tiny Sentiments*

Cardstock: Kraft, Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, Very Vanilla, Candy Lane DSP, Walk in the Park DSP (retired)

Ink: Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Boho Blossoms punch, word window punch, Kraft taffeta ribbon, Pretties Kit pearls, adhesive pearls (non-SU), dimensionals.
*Available in Autumn/Winter mini catalogue

Back later ;)



  1. This is so beautiful. I've just got that stamp set and have had good intentions to use it this Easter! Thanks for the inspiration and for joining in the colour challenge at Just Add Ink.

  2. What a beautiful card! I really like that cross image but haven't purchased it as wasn't sure when I'd get to use it. Makes a perfect Easter card (& a reminder that it is not about eggs, bunnies & chicks).

    Happy Easter,

  3. Very pretty card, Genelle - it's so beautifully finished.

  4. I love that stamp! It's so elegant. Your layout is just gorgeous. Thanks for playing!
