Just Add Ink #228 – Cascading Card

By | August 24, 2014

Saturday morning I checked out the “Just Add Ink” blog and saw that they had a colour challenge this week.  The colors are: Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss and Calypso Coral – from Stampin’ Up, so I thought I would give it a try.


The weather on Saturday afternoon was perfect to spend some time in the pool, so I thought about the color combo and knowing I wanted to try this “Cascading Card” I saw on You Tube (thanks Dawn Griffith), this card came into my head.  The card base in Crumb Cake and to create the pattern for the sides, on Whisper White I stamped all three colors using a stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  Flowers are from the Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp set. Greeting is from Aged Awareness, a photopolymer set – great for lining up what is stamped.  Leaves are from the Build-A-Bird punch. Added some jewels at the end for some bling.
