JAI #300: Just Add A Sketch


WOW, what an exciting milestone for Just Add Ink - this week marks our 300th Challenge. So many fabulous cards, Design Team members, and most importantly - you, the challenge entrants! We wouldn't have made it this far without the gorgeous cards you enter into our challenge week after week, so thank you.

As an extra special thank you, we are giving away some prizes to the people who are voted our Winner and two Honorable Mentions. Make sure you read the rules carefully on the Just Add Ink blog to ensure you are eligible for the prizes.

So, let's get to the challenge! This week Kim has designed a sketch for us all to interpret how we will.

I quite enjoyed this sketch, and thought the bold stripe across the bottom was the perfect opportunity to break out some of my new Sale-A-Bration Glitter Tape. It's so cool - all the fun of glitter without the mess!

I did stuff up a little and put the banner the wrong way around on my card. Whoops! Just goes to show that I should refer to the sketch while I'm creating and not after!

The balloons and sentiment are from a new Occasions Catalogue stamp set called Balloon Celebration. The matching punch is super cool and makes cropping the balloon shapes super easy.

Well, there you have it, my card in the 300th Challenge. I just had a quick look at my computer archives and I think I started on the Design Team way back in late 2012, at around the 144th challenge. I can't believe it's been that long! Time certainly does fly when you're having fun.

See you over at Just Add Ink.

Bye for now,



  1. You can't miss that this is a birthday card Tina - it's so bright, cheerful :) I love how you laid your sentiment across the balloon strings and that die cut bow is so sweet! xxx

  2. Such a fun and sparkly card Tina! I love the addition of the glitter tape and your use of the pink balloons and the sentiment. Peeking from within the strings! Congrats on the 300th challenge! xx

  3. Such a fun, bold & fresh birthday card, Tina - what more could you need? I'm definitely pinning this one to case for later if that's OK. I love how you've arranged the balloons with the sentiment underneath & through the strings & the touch of bling definitely says celebration. I didn't even notice the banner until you mentioned it... & I almost forgot to add mine at all!
    Hugs, Di :)

  4. A great fun card Tina. love your product choices and gold sparkle. xx

  5. What a fun and fantastic card Tina! So bright and fun! Love the steamer DSP behind the balloons! Works perfectly! That strip of glitter tape is so sparkly! Love it! Rochelle xo
