JAI #162: Just Add Inspiration


Yes, it's Just Add Ink time again! This week Trish has found this gorgeous image to inspire our crafting. There are a ton of ways it could inspire you!

I took my cue from the colours and came up with this card.

It had been ages since I'd used French Foliage and this seemed the perfect opportunity! I started with some Very Vanilla cardstock and did some collage stamping down the left hand side.  The rest of the cardstock looked too bright after I'd finished so I sponged it lightly with Crumb Cake ink and then spritzed the whole card with my Early Espresso Marker.

The leaf was rock 'n' rolled using More Mustard and Cajun Craze ink before being trimmed and popped up on Dimensionals.

I carried the same stamping through to the inside.

Stamps: French Foliage, Sassy Salutations
Ink: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Other: Paper Snips, Dimensionals

How will this image inspire you this week?

Bye for now,



  1. What a beautiful card, Tina. French Foliage is such a gorgeous set and this card could be suitable for many occasions. Love those coloured leaves, very realistic.

  2. This is really lovely, Tina. LOVE all the sponging and spritzing, and the pops of colour provided by the leaves - gorgeous.

  3. Love the simple look with the pop of colour Tina. A beautiful card!
