Stampin' Up! Last Chance- Silhouette Sentiments and I create a Gift Card Holder

My second last week as being a Guest Designer at Just Add Ink, and boy did I struggle with this one!
I started by masking off most of the Vanilla base with a circle cut out, and sponged Peach Parfait and a touch of Cajun Craze in the corner, I then used the other part of the mask to cover the sun so I could sponge the sky. It is mostly Bashful Blue, with a touch of Night of Navy. I removed the mask and stamped the bird from Silhouette Sentiments (Hostess set) and the sentiment from the same set. I layered it on Cajun Craze and Peach Parfait. 
Then, it went all on a small base of Very Vanilla, which had a piece cut out and folded up for a gift card to be held.
ETA: I wanted to link you all to Andrea's blog, as I found there was a very similar cards on Splitcoast Stampers, I realise I probably saw it and used the general idea, in that case, I apologise Andrea, I didn't mean to CASE your card with out linking back to you...  
I didn't really decorate the inside, but you get the idea... Anyway, head over to the Just Add Ink website and have a play with the new colour challenge! 


  1. This is so pretty, Jess. I love the soft sponging.

  2. You got amazing depth in a one layer card Jess - it looks lovely.

  3. another great card, I love scene cards they are so peaceful, I must admit I found this colour combo a little challenging, but I'm really pleased with the finished product.

  4. A lovely card Jess, l'm a little partial to silhouette images and sponging. xxx

  5. No problem, Jess. I know what it's like. You see so many cards out there, that you forget where you saw the one you liked.
    BTW, love your Blog & I've become a follower.
