JAI #250: Just Add Inspiration


This week at Just Add Ink Trish has given us some gorgeous images to inspire our creativity.  As it's Valentine's Day tomorrow, it's the perfect opportunity to make a card using her picture board for inspiration.

How adorable are those biscuits and the teacup?  Rob and I don't really 'do' Valentines, so I decided to stick with the love theme, but to make a congratulations card that would be suitable for either a wedding or engagement.

I used some of the Strawberry Slush DSP from the Confetti Celebration DSP pack and the Sweetheart Punch to create the main panel on my card.

Each heart was popped up on Dimensionals and then the whole panel was popped up too.  It's a really lovely pink, even though the photos aren't showing it!

The card is a longer, thinner one than the usual card size to accommodate the size of the hearts.  It's nice to play around with card sizes sometime though!

I hope you can play along with us at Just Add Ink this week.  It's meant to be stinking hot this weekend in Adelaide, so I'm planning to hibernate in my craft space!

Bye for now,



  1. Tina this is inspired use of DSP! Love the effect of texture and detail packed into those hearts! xxx

  2. Just love those fabulous hearts Tina! they are so striking and look amazing highlighted by your long and skinny card! x

  3. Perfectly clean and simple Tina, I love it! Those bold hearts really jump off the background and that patterned paper makes them look like they are heart shaped diamonds :)

  4. Absolutely beautiful Tina! Love your fabulous hearts - this DSP works so well punched out!

  5. This paper is diamond like in appearance I just realised - thanks Jodene. Very cool card Tina and love that you went with something not typically Valentine. x

  6. That paper for the hearts is so perfect, what a brilliant idea. Loving the simpleness of your card and the different shape. I never think to alter the size of my card, really must keep it in mind. Amazing card!
