bluehuesmotherand-child-copyThis is the first new release I’m going to let you see:It has the sweetest sentiment on it! It reads: “A Child and a ______never truly part – Bound in the beating of eachother’s heart.” It’s credited to Charlotte Grey. In the blank spot I put Mother, to get ahead on my Mothers’ day cards! I have 2 done already!!!!

This set is called Bound By the Heart, and is full of gorgeous sentiments like this one!

It also happens to be our DT challlenge today, and that was to sew on our cards. So I handstitched around 3 of the 4 edges.

Butterflies and Flowers

pinkbutterflyI’m sorry I’m posting so late again – we’ve had a bit of drama with the car wreck I was in, and the other person’s car insurane. *sigh* Why do people have to be rude? What is gained from that?

Anyway – on to more fun things! I *love* this big butterfly by Inkadinkado!!!!  All of the stamps are from the Garden Delight clear acrylic set. How stunning is it? And I love the craft white ink on the black paper – always a stunner in my book! I colored the butterfly with a Copic (RV14) after stamping him in Tuxedo Black by Memento.

Where did I get this fab sketch, you ask?….

Darling, isn’t it? And even better: Now, all you have to do is make a card based on this sketch, leave us a comment here on this post with a link to your card by Friday the 13th at 3pm EST and then check back Saturday morning to see if you won the random drawing!!  Sound good, well get busy!!! LOL!!!  OK, before you get busy, Lindsey has put ALL the Inkadinkado stamps on sale for today (Tuesday) through tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12pm EST.  Some stamps are on sale below cost so it REALLY will be worth it for you to stop on by the store now!!! LOL!!! We have a special treat for you today!  We have a sketch, a contest and a prize!  Sound like fun?

I can’t wait to head over to the JBelle Blog to see what everyone comes up with!!!!

Oops – I forgot to post!

chixlittleThis week the LPS team is challenging everyone to use digi images – and there is a prize involved!! Don’t have any? Go here, and get some super cute ones from LPS!

I made two large oval scallops, and used the cropadile to join them together with a large eyelet. I slid the small oval just under the eyelet, and adhered it. My chick egg is cut out and mounted on dimensionals. He’s colored with Copics, and there is Pixie Dust Simmerz Blings on his shell.

Sorry for the extra late post today!

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!

Inspiration Gone Askew

usc_usc24_tbuLet me start by saying that I love this card. Really, I do. I think it is fun, and bright, and cheery, and will make someone smile. So to the end, I captured the spirit of the inspiration piece for today’s Unity Challenge. But other than that – not a hint of the picture can be found in my card, lol. Oh well! Sometimes you start in one direction and end up somewhere totally different – but the journey sure was fun!

I have totally been in love with square cards as of late – I don’t know why. I’ve never really made them at all. But suddenly, every card that shows up in my head is square, lol. So thanks for hanging in through my “square phase”.  I used both the December and January Unity Kits of the Month for this card. I have to admit, I am in love with this “Whateva” sentiment. It is just….perfect. Come to think of it, most Unity stamps are!

tulipsI used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp my images, and Copics to color them. The card itself is pretty darn simple – I did sponge and distress the edges of the peacock panel. The little tassels were on clearance at (yuck) Wal Mart and I couldn’t pass them up.

My dp is from Jacksonbelle Embelllishments. It is the Vivid pattern from the About a Boy line. It is fabulous, and I need to own more of it. Remember to check this post below, because I am giving some away! All you have to do is CASE a member of the Jacksonbelle team, and link your creation back to this post from yesterday. If you win, you get a prize package wirth $25 of goodies that I picked out for you!

While we are talking about Jacksonbelle Embellishments (lol, nice segue, huh?) head on over to the blog today! We have a very helpful chart created by one of our very own DT members. It is designed to simplify your life with Shimmerz! Plus, you can find out which Shimmez are the DT’s favorites!

Ok everyone – have a wonderful Wednesday! Thanks so much for stopping by – I hope your day is filled with happiness and joy!

School Days….and Blog Candy!

jbe_jbe040_tbuCan I just start this off by saying how difficult it was to narrow down the choices for this week’s Jacksonbelle Embellishments challenge? We CASE-d another DT member this week – Kim over at Sunshiny Days. Talk about one talented lady!!! *whew* I get really nervous when I have to case members of any design team, lol! I drooled over her blog (literally – she has some tasty treats on there, too!) for at least an hour before I settled on a card to case. I chose the card from the post titled Riley Sketch, and it is from last Thursday.

hsc54-k17Here is what her adorable card looks like! How cute is the little book reading Riley? I love it! For my card, I changed up the color scheme a little bit – rather than Chocolate Chip I used Tangerine Tango, and rather than circular Nesties I went with the Labels Two set. Also, I used the Lizzie Anne Designs set called School Days. I used Fancy Pants dp, from their About a Boy line. I just love the rich colors in these papers! I colored my little guy and his books with Prismacolor markers as well as Copics. The apple is popped up on a dimensional, and painted with Royal Red Shimmerz. The books have Pixie Dust Shimmerz Blingz on them – so sparkly irl! I used twill ribbon purchased from Jacksonbelle, but it looks like it is out of stock right now. Stalk her though – she’ll get it back, lol! In the top right corner where Kim placed brads, I put clear epoxy stickers – I love the way they magnify the stripes! Please play along with us this week – the keyword if you upload to SCS is JBE040.

Now, on to the blog candy! Be honest – that is the only reason you are still here, lol! I’m giving away $25 worth of Jacksonbelle products! How fun is that?! I picked out an assortment of Webster’s Pages, Fancy Pants Papers, and Shimmerz for someone to win! Isn’t that exciting?!?!?! All you have to do is play along with us this week. Except I’ll be even more open – pick any member of the Jacksonbelle Design Team and CASE one of our cards. Post a link back here (either to the card on your blog or to an online gallery) in the comment section, and I will draw a random winner! If you upload your card to SCS, use the keyword JBE040A, so I know it is for the extra challenge I’ve issued (and if it happens to be one of Kim’s card’s you’ve cased, use both keywords).

You have until next Monday night – February 23rd – at 8:00 EST to link your creations here. Please be sure to give credit where it is due, and say who you CASE-d!! I’ll anounce the winner next Tuesday, when we do our next Jacksonbelle Challenge! Have fun stamping! And don’t forget to stop by the Jacksonbelle Blog, where Kim has created an awesome tutorial for you this week! Links to the other DT members are on my right sidebar – so go leave some love!
