Mae has come up with a great sketch for this week's Just Add Ink challenge:

I received, from a dear friend, Stampin' Up!'s Flock Together stamp set for Christmas, so decided to ink it up, and pair it with the cute Birds of A Feather Designer Series Paper that I've been meaning to cut into.

Stampin' Up! now offers Oval Framelits dies - woohoo!  I've used them to create my focal panel.  The wavy embossing at the bottom of the card is courtesy of the new Borders Scoring Plate that is a new feature of the Simply Scored scoring tool. 

Stamps: Flock Together, Sweet Essentials
Card: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
DSP: Birds of A Feather Designer Series Paper
Ink: Crumb Cake, Primrose Petals and Island Indigo stampin' pads, Crumb Cake marker
Other: Ovals Framelits dies, Primrose Petals stitched satin ribbon, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, sponge dauber, glue dots, Borders Scoring Plate (and Simply Scored), Stamp-a-ma-jig, Basic Rhinestone 

Here's a close-up of the embossed pattern on the front of my card; just one of several designs on the Borders Scoring Plate template:


Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team samples over at Just Add Ink.  We hope you play along with us this week, and link up your creation on the Just Add Ink blog!


  1. This is totally cute, Christine. Love the focus panel, colour combo and all the cute details. Must have another look at that DSP!

  2. Love the sweet soft colours Christine and that wavy scoring is just perfect for the sketch. xxx

  3. Your polka dot birdies are too cute, Christine! Great job on the scoring.

  4. SO sweet! Love your little spotty birds and the wavy embossing. Such pretty colours on this card. x

  5. This is such a sweet card Christine! Love the soft colours in the DSP, they team so well with Crumb Cake. The new scoring plate gives a wonderful effect too!

  6. I love your card Christine, the birdcage is such a cute image and looks great with those papers.
