JAI11 Just Add Ink Challenge: Cheeky Monkeys

Published by under cards

Just Add Ink Challenge 11I've been a fan of the Just Add Ink blog since it first started in January. I love looking at the projects created by the very talented design team, and often 'play along' with the weekly challenges… although I haven't officially joined in before today. Another thing I really love is the fact that the blog is designed by – and for – Aussie fans of Stampin' Up!, which means they use products that are available to us here and now. Hoo-ray for that!

When you visit Just Add Ink, don't forget to click on the tabs across the top especially the Tutorials one. I loved Sarah Klass's video on making a headband from Stampin' Up! ribbons and other bits and pieces. Sarah is such a crack-up!!! LOVE those ribbon flowers!!

Anyway, back to business. This week's challenge made me laugh… "use anything you like, make anything you like". Well, I thought, I can do that!!! So here I am to share with you my cheeky monkeys from the new Fox & Friends stamp set, available now in the new Autumn-Winter mini catalogue.

Fox & Friends card - Cheeky Monkeys!

The chocolate cardstock that the monkeys are sitting on is actually covered in ultra fine supernova glitter, but of course that's not going to show up for me here no matter how many dozens of photos I take – grrrr.

The jungle leaves are made from the Little Leaves sizzlits die and were cut oh so easily with the help of Mr Big (aka my Big Shot), also available now.

I was in the middle of making swaps for our team (more about that later) when I switched projects half-way through. Yep, ended up making a whole stack of cheeky monkeys instead of Rich Razzleberry flowers!

You have to laugh sometimes, don't you?

Anyway, I do believe this qualifies for this week's JAI11 challenge, so here you go Danielle and Amanda – my very first submission! LOL.

ETA (8/4/10): Ooooh how excitement!! I was one of the Top 5 picks this week at Just Add Ink! Thanks girls xx

Happy stamping,

Happy Easter

Published by under easter

Wishing you a very happy Easter!

This is our first Easter in 8 years that we are not camping, so we've been making up some new family 'at home' traditions. Lots of fun.

Some of that was to spend time stamping, surprise surprise – LOL. My 6 year old DD decided she needed her own stamp desk, so we've found a corner in my craft room which is just for her. Today she learnt how to score cardstock, and which way to fold it ('mountain' on the inside, 'valley' on the outside).

We made this card for you!

Stamp set: Fox & Friends from the NEW mini catalogue, Sweet Slumber DSP, Wide Oval punch for easter eggs, Baja Breeze grosgrain ribbon, Chit Chat (retired) rubons. Fox & Friends embossed with clear embossing powder. 

 

We also made you a little gift!

This pillow box was made using the Big Shot and the Pillow Box die. I LOVE my new Big Shot, who is now known as Mr Big in my house. It handled the acetate sheet without any dramas, and even the score lines came through.

These tags were punched out with the NEW Medium Jewelry Tag punch. You know what I discovered? Some of the stamps from Occasions For All (the Level 2 hostess set) fit perfectly in the punch. That's where these "happy" and "easter" stamps came from.

I've been working on some challenges today, and will share my first challenge for Just Add Ink tomorrow.

Before I leave you, I had to share this crazy lookin' easter egg that my chicken(!) produced. It just goes to show that not everything in life comes out as planned – even in nature. I took a photo of it next to a normal chook egg so you can see how little it is.

Enjoy the rest of your Easter!
