Just Add Ink Challenge 75


July is the month that I get to be a guest designer on Just Add Ink and what an honour that is! The challenge this week is a colour challenge. Here are the colours:

I wanted to make a thank you card for my mother in law for her help and generosity in setting up the nursery for our baby who is due to arrive in September. I used the Eastern Blooms and Sincere Salutations stamp sets. I also used a technique which I picked up from the swaps from the Stampin Up convention in May, which was using the rock n roll technique with a clear mount block. I was very happy with the end result, hope you like it.


  1. Thanks for reminding me about this stamp set Kim! Mine has been gathering dust - but I want to get it all inky again after seeing this fab creation from you! Love the Rock & Roll on the block - very creative ♥

  2. Chances are this set will retire soon :( so its really nice to see such a lovely card with it Kim. Love the three black brads in the centre of the flower and the fab effect you got with the acrylic block.

  3. I love the speckled look of your background and that hip flower! ;)

  4. I absolutely love Eastern Blooms and it has been sadly neglected since Vintage Vogue entered my life lol.

    Gorgeous card Kim and I'm sure your MIL really appreciates it. I love those little black brads you've used as the centre of your flower.

  5. A great card Kim, loving the different effects you have created in the backgrounds, l never invested in this set...wishing l had now!
