This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to make a card, or other papercraft creation, using this fun inspiration pic as a jumping-off point:

It's the last challenge of the month so this week is our "Guest Designer"challenge.  If you are interested, all you need do is play along with the challenge this week!

 (The details: For the last challenge of each month, we will be offering the "TOP PICK" for that week, the opportunity to join us as a Guest Designer for the last challenge the following month.  If this sounds like something you would like to do, get creating and come join us at Just Add Ink.)

I used the colours layered in the jar, and liked the touch off silver - here's what I came up with, using Stampin' Up!'s awesome Birthday Surprise stamp set:

Stamps: Birthday Surprise
Card: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper (retired shade)
DSP: Perfect Plum, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red Patterns Designer Series Papers
Ink: Basic Black craft stampin' pad (retired), Old Olive, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie markers
Other: Clear stampin' emboss powder, Itty Bitty Accents punch, Banner punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Starburst framelits, enamel dots (not SU!)


  1. Wow - I can't believe how well you have lined up the papers to look like they are just one patterned sheet. I love the bright colours and the cute cupcake!

  2. That big bold sentiment really stands out against the rainbow background and I love those enamel dots!

  3. The big bold stripes are just the perfect match to that big bold sentiment Christine! Love the little hints of sparkle too :) xxx

  4. Fab rainbow effect Christine and your lovely big sentiment is perfect for a colourful background. xxx

  5. Awesome background Christine. Love the little cupcake up in the corner. Very bright, yet cute card. xo

  6. Christine this is a bright and cheery card and I love the dsp you've picked for the background (adds just enough detail with out being over powering) :)

  7. What a fabulous card to showcase the colours - you've lined them up perfectly!
