Hello everyone! Welcome to 2020, and a new year of Just Add Ink challenges. This year we are kicking off with a blog hop with the whole design team, to celebrate 10 years and 1000 followers! Our theme is ‘Celebrate’ and I have chosen to celebrate one of the most powerful emotions we feel – Love <3

You may have started here, or you may have just arrived from lovely Jan‘s blog (wasn’t her creation just gorgeous?). You can follow the blog hop by clicking the Next Blog button or the permalink list at the bottom of the post.


As part of our milestone celebrations the design team are offering prizes. Our Top Pick & Honourable Mentions will receive a special gift. We’ll be choosing some other entries to receive a little something also – to be eligible all you have to do is leave a comment on each of the blogs along the hop – 14 stops in total. Prizes include stamp sets, card kits, embossing folders, ribbons, rhinestones, handmade cards/tags….
PLEASE NOTE: Prizes are only eligible to South Pacific (Australia & New Zealand) entries – sorry to those of you from all around the world, postage prices are very steep these days.


For my creation, I used a card base of thick Whisper White. On Watercolor Paper, I stamped and heat embossed some hearts with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and gave it a wash of Blushing Bride ink using an Aqua Painter. This gave a lovely emboss resist effect.

Using some retired dies, I cut a large ‘celebrate’ from Red Glimmer paper and adhered it on a Heart Doily. Above that, I fixed a few loops of Silver Metallic Thread, and a sentiment label of Blushing Bride card, stamped with ‘LOVE’ in Blushing Bride ink, using a retired Alphabet Rotary Stamp.

The card was finished off with From My Heart Faceted Gems.


Now it’s onto the very talented Di – I just love what she has created! Click the Next Blog button below to follow the hop.
