JAI #110: Just Add A Sketch


Yay, it's Friday, which means it's time for another Just Add Ink challenge.  This week it's a sketch to inspire your creativity.  Just as I was about to make my card for this sketch I had an order arrive from Stampin' Up! that included The Open Sea stamp set.  I could not wait another moment to get it inky!  But first, here's the sketch.

I decided to make a square card using the sketch for inspiration.

I used every stamp in the set on this card - isn't it great when you love every single stamp in a set?  I can see that this stamp set will become a favourite of mine!

I can never leave the inside plain, so a bit more stamping to finish it off.

I hope you can play along at Just Add Ink this week.  The sketch is fabulous and sure to inspire you to create!

Stamps: The Open Sea, Well Scripted (retired)
Ink: Night Of Navy, Sahara Sand
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Riding Hood Red, Sahara Sand
Other: 1" Square Punch, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Linen Thread, Dimensionals

Bye for now,



  1. This is a great guy card Tina. I love your colour combination and your background stamping.

  2. Tina - this is an amazing card! I love all the details and your background stamping is perfect! Lovely man card!

  3. Love this card, the colour combination you have used and how you have also decorated the inside of your card too.

  4. GREAT card, Tina - I love it to bits! I really like that you've used Sahara Sand, when I would tend towards Crumb Cake; it looks great. Will be trying this colour combo for sure.

  5. I totally love what you have done with this card, Tina. It is a fabulous masculine card and very inspiring!

  6. Great card Tina. I love how you have used the stamps to make your own background. I really like this set but it's one of those ones that I'd never be able to use.
