A Jacksonbelle Free for All! (post #3 for today)

jbe_planefun_tbuFor this Tuesday’s Product Spotlight, we got to pick from a list of several things — isn’t Lindsey the sweetest? I chose to go with the About a Boy paper by Fancy Pants, because I *love* it so much! I used the new Lizzie Anne Designs set Things That Go, to stick with boy-ish motif — no flowers on this one!

I put my panel with the plane and sentiment under the transaprency, and then added another plane on top of it. I sanded a Tim Holtz Idea-ology and added a blingy star to it, to put next to the sentiment. In each cornerthere are Silver Bells Dew Drops (to hide the bits of adhesive I used to adhere the transparency). And then I pretty much left well enough alone. The paper and transparency are so busy and pretty that I didn’t want to overwhelm them, lol!

jbcase-cassielarson_by_casslarsonNow, onto the blog candy winner! I put the numbers in a hat and let my husband draw one out – and it was this beauty by Cassie Larson! Didn’t she do an amazing job CASE-ing Jennifer Buck’s card? I love all of her bling on this one! Congrats on the prize pack, Cassie – it will go in the mail to you within the next couple of days! Thanks so much for playing!!! I hope you had as much fun playing as I did picking out the goodies for the prize pack lol!

What? I can’t color anything??? (post #2 for today)

pad_softflowerwindow_tbuThat is exactly what I thought when Marti issued this challenge! How on earth was I going to make a card without my Copics, or Prismacolors???? Well, what I came up with is one of my all-time favorite cards! It is nice to be forced outside of my comfort zone every now and then!

Everything on my card, except the Cuttlebug folder, came from Pez-a-Doodle Designs. They have SUCH fabulous shopping!

I started by sponging Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Aged Mahogany onto the piece I Cuttlebugged. Then I added a little Tea Stain on top of that. My flower box is also done the same way. I used the Inkssentials blending tool for my sponging – I love that thing! I stamped the window on a different piece of cardstock in Walnut Stain, and sponged Tea Stain to “color” it. I cut the window and the flower box out and lined them up so I could use a variety of Adirondack Inks (Pesto, Meadow, and Watermelon) to stamp the flowers. The window panes are covered with Ranger Gossy Accents, which had the effect of slightly softening the lines of the stamps – I love the way the flowers turned out!

Once the glossy accents dried, I adhered the whole thing together. And seriously, I love how soft and pretty it is! Oh – I forgot to tell you what awesome stamp line these stamps came from!! They are brand new Flower Soft stamps! Marti has an amazing selection of Flower Soft products at awesome prices!

It’s Twinkling Tuesday! (post #1 for today)

usc_mttsc11_tbuThis week, instead of doing a sketch challenge, Miss Madelynn had a little inspiration piece for us. I took from it my color scheme, and that’s about it, lol. But since I never use Rose Red, this was a big leap for me! I used the February Unity Kit of the Month, Endings and Beginnings, on this card. I love their Kits of the Month!! I also lucked out and had a tiny butterfly charm that matched, so that was awesome 🙂 I tied it with my knot in my ribbon, and adhered a dimensional to the back of it, so it would staymttsc11 where I wanted it! I am a fan of this caard, because it turned out rather simple, and I love simple. Didn’t take long to make at all!

Isn’t the inspiration mug the most darling thing? I loved it as soon as I saw it! And I can totally see why Miss Madelynn loves it too! It actually belongs to her mom and to me, it just screams Jessica! Be sure to visit the Twinkling Tuesdays blog to see the featured stamper this week, and visit all the other Twinklettes’ blogs by clicking on the links on the right side of my blog!
