JAI #530: Just Add Stamps, Ink, Paper


Hooray for Friday and the new Just Add Ink challenge! My two boys have pupil free days today, so it's nearly like having a long weekend. Poor Ada still has to go to school though - I might have to find a treat for her to have after school.

This week we are going back to basics! Rochelle has challenged us to just use stamps, ink and paper - no ribbon, embellishments, embossing or die cuts! I decided to use my Nothing's Better Than stamp set, mostly because it hasn't seen ink in far too long!

I can't seem to use this set without reaching for retro colours. Today I've used Flirty Flamingo with Coastal Cabana and a tiny hint of Mango Melody. Such a fun colour combo!

Seriously, who couldn't do with a cocktail right now? With ever-changing rules around COVID, trying to plan Christmas, kids finishing school (one completely) and a couple of medical issues - adulting sure is hard! 

I really love the way that the filler stamp for the cocktail glass has the ice cubes built into it - no need to stamp them over the top, or emboss them for the white lines. I fussy cut the image out, even though there's a die. That would be cheating for the purposes of this challenge though!

I stamped the Samp cocktail on the inside - why change a good thing when you're on to a winner? LOL! The sentiment was made by using individual words from two different sentiments. Such a bonus of stamping with photopolymer stamps! It's a much quicker and easier process than with rubber stamps.

That's all from me for now, please do head on over to the Just Add Ink blog, where you will find the rest of this week's Design Team cards, and you can also link up your card for the challenge. Remember, just stamps, ink and paper!

Bye for now,
