Our Just Add Ink challenge this week is provided by Trish, who came up with this fabulous inspiration pic for us to use as a starting-point for a card or other papercraft project:

I started off with the idea of making a bold, geometric-design, masculine card - but, as often happens, the image in my head just would not translate to paper!!  So, I ended up with something completely different to my original plan.  I was inspired by the stripes, and the bold yellow that I see as Crushed Curry.  Here's my take on the challenge, using a cute new stamp from the Something For Baby stamp set (out 1st July).  Check out the matching framelits and paper-piercing template around the duck -  such fun!

Stamps: Something for Baby (out 1st July), That's the Ticket
Card: Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Crushed Curry
DSP: Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper
Ink: Smoky Slate, Basic Gray and Crushed Curry stampin' pads
Other: Smoky Slate chevron ribbon, Ticket Duo punch, White baker's twine, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Circles Collection framelits, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, Baby's First Framelits (out 1st July), Eclectic Paper-piercing pack (out 1st July), sponge dauber, Basics Glimmer brads, stampin' dimensionals, glue dots
The rest of the Design Team members have come up with some AMAZING cards using this inspiration pic, so be sure to check them out, here.  Why not join in the fun, and link up your card, too?  We'd love to see your creation.


  1. I love your interpretation of the inspriation pics, Christine! Isn't funny how the creativer process works? Sometimes what you end up with is equally as wonderful or better than what you originally planned.

    This is a sweet baby card (that sentiment is lovely!), with beautiful soft colors. Love it!

  2. I love these colours for a baby card! Great job, Christine!

  3. Cute card Christine,love the colours,

  4. I love your ducky Christine - just perfect for a gorgeous baby card. The stripey DSP is just like waves for the ducky to swim on. xxx
