JAI #386: Just Add R

Hi!

This week's challenge is a fun one!


It's my turn to set the challenge, and this week at Just Add Ink I've asked you to add 'R' to your card. What does this mean? You just add anything R related to your card - note that I said 'related', not 'rated' LOL!!


You could use a stamp set that starts with R, a technique, a colour, anything, as long as it starts with an R. I always like to see how many of the feature letter I can get on my card for these challenges, and this time I got 2 (3 if you can stretch and call the Jute Twine rope).

First, and most obvious, is that I made a round card. So very easy with the Circle Framelits. I just cut my card to size, folded it, and then ran it though the Big Shot with the Framelit, making sure that the framelit hung over the folded edge to leave a hinge.

The second R is the robin on my card. I have no idea if it actually is meant to be a robin, but I'm going with it! The stamp is a little sneak peek of a stamp set that is coming out in the Occasions Catalogue in January.

Did you notice that the leaves on the DSP also followed the 'round' theme? It took a bit of measuring, but I cropped it from the middle of one of the sheets of DSP from the Painted Autumn DSP. I think it was worth the effort - it works so beautifully with the round card.

I cropped another little robin for the inside of the card. The sentiments I have used on this card are also a sneak peek, although they come from a different stamp set to the robin. Lots to look forward to in January!

In the meantime, why don't you play along with our R challenge this week? You can see th ret of the Design Team cards over at Just Add Ink, where you can also link your card.

Bye for now,

Tina
