JAI #211: Just Add A Sketch


Happy Easter!  I'm really looking forward to spending some time scrapbooking this long weekend.  What will you be doing?  Hopefully finding some time to create a card for our Just Add Ink Challenge.  This week Paula has designed a fabulous sketch for us.

I switched a few things around with the sketch to create my card.

To create the larger scallops under the flag I cut a second Floral Frames die cut, and then used a Circles Collection Framelit to cut a circle out of the middle.  I then cut between two of the scallops so that I could stretch the circular shape into a straight line.  Easy!

This card did double duty as a class sample for my stamping ladies this month. They'd wanted to do a technique so we did the baby wipe background technique. You can see the colours behind the stamped tree.

I hope you have a relaxing weekend, with plenty of papercrafting time.  See you over at Just Add Ink!

Bye for now,



  1. Oh Tina - this is just beautiful - love the earthy feel!

  2. The baby wipe technique is really striking Tina. I love your idea of using the framelit to create the scalloped border too! xxx

  3. The baby wipe back ground looks great Tina - this is a technique I have not tried so this is great inspiration. Great idea for a Sympathy card too. Chantell


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it.
