Watercolour Birthday Card, Just Add Ink, and an Update!

Usually I’d be going Live on my Facebook Page about now… but I’ve been struck down with a horrible cold, and this morning my voice is not at its best. So, instead I thought I would do a sort of update blog post and share a fun card for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge.

Urgent ordering news…

Stampin' Up! Punches

Stampin’ Up! announced to Demonstrators early this week that these two punches (Butterfly Duet and Cake Builder) have been SO popular that they are struggling to keep up with demand, this combined with Chinese new year which causes issues with shipping, means that they are expecting these two be SOLD OUT within the next 2 weeks! They wont be back in stock til probably the end of March… so if you want them, grab them sooner rather than later.

Also, the Fabulous Organza Ribbon that is (was) free with a £45 order during Sale-a-bration has SOLD OUT and so wont be back! There are, of course, a heap of other goodies still available to spend your Sale-a-bration credits on!

Just Add Ink…

I felt like taking part in a new challenge this week, and Just Add Ink popped up in my Facebook Feed!

Just Add Ink Stamping Challenge

This week’s challenge is to create a project inspired by this stunning photograph of cake. Once I had stopped day dreaming about cake, I took the cake image and the colour combination and created this card…

Subtle Watercolour Birthday Card using Piece of Cake from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah for Just Add Ink

The cakes are stamped in Stazon Ink onto Shimmery White card stock. The cakes are taken from the Piece of Cake stamp set, which coordinates with that Cake Builder Punch from earlier. Each cake was then loosely water-coloured using the following colours:

The centerpiece cake was stamped on a separate piece of Shimmery White card stock, water-coloured and punched out before being layered onto a Stitched Circle and scalloped circle die using Dimensionals.

The card is finished with a trio of Self-Adhesive Sequins from the Gingham Gala suite.

  1. This is so pretty, Hannah! The softly coloured cakes create a fabulous background and I love your use of the highlighter technique for the central cake. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. Ohh I like the way you repeated the image to make your background. It’s very effective, soft and pretty. I agree though, it does make you think of Cake! Chantell Just Add Ink

  4. Such a gorgeous card Hannah! Love the repeated stamping in the background layer and then mixed with the focus panel is just stunning! The sequins are fun embellishment to finish off the card. Thanks for playing along and supporting us this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo
