Rochelle has challenged us to Just Add Project Life, at Just Add Ink this week.  Stampin' Up! has teamed up with Becky Higgins, to release an exclusive range of Project Life products, that complement Stampin' Up!'s core range.   Whilst intended primarily for memory keeping (fantastic for quick, on-the-go scrapbooking), I like the Project Life Card Collections to use in my card-making.

Each Card Collection has three different sizes of cards, that fit the Project Life page pockets.  They can also be used as a focal image on cards, or in place of Designer Series Paper.

Here's my first quick and easy baby card.  The only stamping is the sentiment.  I added a little ribbon treatment, and an enamel heart, to a medium-sized PL card, and adhered it to a large PL card.

Using the same Project Life Card Collection, I made a second card.  The onesie was stamped on, and cut out from, a small PL card, adhered to a scalloped circle cut from another PL card, and then added to a large heart-patterned PL card.

I had a lot of fun making these cute cards, and love that my Stampin' Up! ribbons, inks and cardstock all co-ordinate with the little cards.

Make sure you check out what the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team have made, using Project Life, this week.  We would love to see your creations, too, so link them up over at the Just Add Ink blog.

We have a great sketch challenge happening at Just Add Ink this week.  Here's the sketch Tina designed, for us to use to create a card or other papercraft project.

 I've stuck pretty literally to the sketch, save for an added circle to house my sentiment.  How yummy is the Sweet Sugarplum glitter ribbon  I have used?  It's available to buy from 1st September, in a combo with a roll of gorgeous silver glitter ribbon.

I added some clear Wink of Stella to the bird and foliage, but, alas, my photography doesn't allow you to enjoy that glimmery detail!  Try as I might, I couldn't get the right light to capture it.  I used blender pens, and ink pooled in the lids of my inkpads, to colour the bird, and to add a touch of colour to the branch and leaves.

Listed below are all the current Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card.  If you click on one of the thumbnail images, you will be taken direct to my online store - very handy, if you wish to buy these products for yourself!

The rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team have made such beautiful cards using this sketch; be sure to check them out here.
