Just Add Ink #66: Just Add Flowers


I'm a little sad with this post, as it is my last as a Guest Designer for Just Add Ink.  I've had a great time designing for the blog though, and want to thank the team for having me!

So.  The last challenge for April is with Mother's Day in mind: Just Add Flowers.  Here's the card I came up with:

My mum is a sewer, and taught me how to sew, so I immediately thought of the Sew Suite stamp set and Sweet Stitches DSP.  The card is a larger size than I would normally make, but I didn't want to lose any of the stitching detail on the DSP so I had to go a bit bigger.  The finished card is 5 1/4" square.

I stamped the dressmaking form in Stazon ink on a scrap of Window Sheet to give more of a 'true' wire framed look.  Then I just clustered the rest of the embellishments on top of the large flower.  The smaller flower was coloured using my Melon Mambo marker.  I love the way it all turned out.

Stamps: Sew Suite, Trendy Trees
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Stazon.
DSP/Cardstock: Sweet Stitches DSP, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip, Melon Mambo, So Saffron
Other: Big Shot, Sweet Buttons Embosslit, Paper Daisies, Basic Rhinestones, Window Sheet Medium, Word Window L Punch, Modern Label XL Punch, Slot Punch (retired), Paper Snips.

Catch you later,



  1. This is beautiful Tina. I'm sure your Mum will truly love it.

  2. your card caught my eye on the just add ink blog-I love it and all the wonderful details-

  3. This card is amazing. I love how you stamped on the acetate, folded the 'measuring tape' and used the button embosslit for the centre of the flower. All the elements came together beautifully.

  4. Lovely Tina, very clever idea with the acetate! love all the bit's too!
    I will miss your weekly additions to JAI..
