JAI #195: Just Add Inspiration


Let's get straight into it, shall we?

This week Nikki has found this absolutely gorgeous picture to inspire you for the new Just Add Ink challenge.

So very pretty!  These are the colours we have picked out of the image to use.

So many possibilities!  I really loved the softness of these colours.

My sister is in India at the moment for a wedding but before she left she asked me to make a Thank You card for the family she is staying with while she is there.  I thought about it for a while and then put it to one side.  Then one night I dreamed about making this card.  When I got up and made it, it turned out exactly as it did in my dream.  Love when that happens!

The large bubbles were created using one of the circle offcuts from the Daydream Medallions stamp set.  We got the stamp set as a gift at Convention 2 years ago and one of the presenters told us not to throw out those bits as they could be used as stamps.  The smaller dots were stamped using the eraser on the top of a pencil.  I couldn't decide where to put the sentiment, so I stamped it on some vellum.  I wrapped it around the card and adhered it to the back.  That way you don't have to worry about hiding the adhesive and it makes the sentiment appear to float on your card.  Such a neat trick!

The bubbles continue through to the inside.  I really loved this card, so I think I'm going to have to make some more.

I'll see you over at Just Add Ink!

Bye for now,



  1. I love that card too, just beautiful, Tina. And I thought 'dreaming' cards was just my 'thing'! LOL!

  2. This is such a cool idea Tina, l absolutely love your bubbles, so effective and fun! Great tip on the Vellum too..:0) xxx

  3. I love your dream backstory Tina and I love how your card turned out with bright and happy bubbles floating across it. xxx

  4. I think this card is just inspired Tina!! I have some round rubber lying around and now I want to mount it so I can make one (or many) of these fun cards too. Your tip about the vellum is great - thanks!!

  5. That is so soft and pretty. Just gorgeous!
