JAI #392: Just Add Something New Blog Hop

Hi!



Welcome back to another fun year of Just Add Ink challenges! As usual, we are kicking off the year with a Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from Jan's blog, where I'm sure you found something very inspiring, or you may be starting out here. Doesn't matter, just keep hopping until you get back to where you started!


What a perfect theme for a new year: something new. It can be either new product, or a card for something new, like a new house, new baby - anything that fits the something new theme! I've done a bit of both by using new products on a congratulations card that could be used to celebrate anything new in someone's life.

In making this card, I've done something I don't usually do. I've used some of our new Memories and More cards as the feature on this card. Both the spotty background and the main flower panel are from the Sweet Soiree Memories and More card pack, which is a new Sale-A-Bration choice. All I had to do was trim the larger card to fit the card front and add a bit of Wink Of Stella to the flower image. I also added some WOS to the Rich Razzleberry card underneath the main panel. Hopefully you can see it sparkling nicely in the photo.

How sweet is this ribbon that I've added to the card? It's actually two different ribbons that I've layered. It took a few goes to get the bow looking perfect, but I'm glad I persevered, as I think it looks great. Both ribbons are new - the Calypso Coral shimmer ribbon is a part of a three pack that is a Sale-A-Bration choice, and the Whisper White Organza can be found on page 23 of the Occasions Catalogue.

Here's some more new product on the inside of the card. The flower sticker is from the new Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit, which is on page 13 of the Occasions Catalogue. It matches perfectly with the image on the front, except that it is outlined in Silver Foil instead of black. So pretty! The dotty piece is the section I chopped off the M&M card to make it fit the card base. Nothing gets wasted!



Thanks for checking out my 'something new' card. Next you're off to see the gorgeous card that Di has made for our Just Add Ink blog hop.

Bye for now,

Tina
