JAI 300 and PCCC183

Today's card draws inspiration from two sources. Firstly, my favourite challenge site Just Add Ink has a sketch challenge.

And The Paper Craft Crew has a colour challenge that just happened to incorporate some of my favourite colours.

Since the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues came out last month, my crafting has been dominated by all the wonderful things from those catalogues but today, I wanted to use a favourite from the annual catalogue, Kinda Eclectic. Here's how it turned out.

Update: Delighted to be a Design Team Top Pick at Paper Craft Crew.
Card: Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White, DSP from Moonlight stack and Wildflower Fields
Stamps: Kinda Eclectic, Crazy About You
Inks: Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Old Olive
Other: Candy dot and brad base, linen twine, dimensionals, Blackberry Bliss marker to colour cut edges.


  1. Jan this just lovely! The crisp white and pops of bold colours are so it! Thanks so much for helping us celebrate our 300th challenge at Just Add Ink.

  2. So pretty Jan! I love your use of these bold colours - your layered butterfly and the use of the twine and soft DSP add such texture. Thanks for joining us for our 300th challenge at Just Add Ink this week :-)

  3. This is so gorgeous Jan and love how you used the sketch. Your so good with your colour challenges too, making colours I wouldn't think to use look amazing. And its always wonderful to see you at Just Add Ink!!

  4. Hi Jan, what a simple layout, but it works so nicely with the stamp set you choose and with our color challenge. Very nicely done. Thanks for joining us again this week at the Paper Craft Crew! xo Crystal

  5. So glad that you brought out Kinda Eclectic, Jan! One of my favourite sets, and you showed it off beautifully with this layout & colours. So glad you joined us for the colour challenge at the Paper Craft Crew. ~Deborah

  6. It's always nice to to pull out an old favourite Jan. I love how you have the butterfly perched on that trailing branch. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  7. It really is great o go back and give some inky love to old favourite stamp sets. I love the way you've used Kina Eclectic, especially the sunburst. Very clever! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous card with us at Just Add Ink.

  8. Jan, Your card is absolutely lovely! I love this stamp set and I especially love the composition with the colors. Thanks so much for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew. ~Pam, DT
