JAI #361: Just Add Two


It's time for this week's Just Add Ink challenge, and I've taken a little trip down memory lane!

This week Kelly has challenged us to Just Add Two to our cards.

I love these challenges, they are so much fun! This week I chose to add flowers and watercolour to my card.

If you went through your preteen/teen years in the late 80's/early 90's, you probably had a pair of floral jeans. I wasn't quite girly enough for floral jeans, so I turned a pair of plain jeans into a statement piece by graffiti-ing all over them. Boy, did I love those jeans!

Anyway, today's card takes me back to those carefree days. I stamped the jeans pocket on Shimmery White cardstock and then watercoloured it with Night Of Navy ink. I stamped the pocket again on the Daisy print paper from the new Delightful Daisy DSP, fussy cut it right along the lines, and then adhered it to the full pocket. I love the look of the jeans pocket.

The border was stamped using the stitching and rivet stamps from Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set, which the pocket also came from. The border took a little bit of planning and masking to get right, but wasn't really too tricky. The background daisies, from Daisy Delight, were stamped three time per flower. I was meaning to stamp them off each time, but on the first flower I forgot to stamp off the third layer, so I ran with it for the rest of the flowers. One of those happy accidents!

The sentiment stamps are from another new set from the upcoming Annual Catalogue called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. It coordinates with the new Happy Birthday thinlit, and I'm guessing it's going to get a real work out this year!

Which two will you choose? Flowers, Washi or Watercolour? I'll find out when I see your card linked at the Just Add Ink blog, I'm sure.

Bye for now,



  1. This is fabulous Tina! Love the repetitive stamping and cute pocket. But wow to that border, it looks amazing...Very clever! xx

  2. Wow, this is absolutely gorgeous, Tina! Your daisy background looks so dreamy and I love the contrast of the crisp, detailed border too. Then there's the very lovely pretty!! I think am falling for this set thanks to you :-) xx

  3. This is pure delight Tina. I just love your layered daisy background (I thought it was DSP!) and the stitched border is so striking! xxx
