Today's card I made with another stamp from my sister-in-law's collection. No idea where she got this one, but I love the saying. I started with a scrap from the bin of light cream and burgundy filigree paper and mounted it on card stock from my DCWV Jewel Textured Stack. I then used some paper called "Happy Holidays" by Jackie Eckles that I had left over from a class I took at Scrapbooker's Paradise at Christmas. I believe it was the acrylic album class I took with Dana from Dana's House of Cards! That's when we met! I cut out two pieces from the back of that holiday paper which is the polka dots and mounted them both on the same burgundy card stock as before. The bottom one I made a frilled edge on the right so I could add the jewels. I made a six layer flower (I love to layer as many as I can) and fastened it with a orange jewelled brad. I dusted all the edges of the cardstock with DuDrop's Jumbo Java Ink and added the burgundy with lemons ribbon on the right. I bought that ribbon a long long time ago at Michael's and I still have tonnes of it left! I tied a knot in it at the top and tucked the mounted sentiment "All things grow with love" under it. Ta-da - finished!

The striped paper on the left is a scrap too from a Dollarama pack and I used two pieces of ribbon both the same pattern, one purple and one green. The stamp is my sister-in-law's and it was from a clear set she got at Michael's. I stamped it with jet black ink and embossed it with Stamp-It's Hologram powder. What else would I use - really?!? I colored it in using my Crayola's and put a clear jewel on the top of the cupcake! The sentiment "Hi Cupcake!" is from the same clear stamp set and it is stamped and embossed the same way. I mounted everything on purple paper from my DCWV Jewel Texture Stack and used my sissors to cut the frilled edges. After making knots with the ribbon and putting them on with a pop dot each, I used 3 tiny jewes in the bottom left corner to finish it off! Not bad for my first day back after a long week of sickness! YAY!!!
Hope you guys are all well. Tomorrow I'm gonna do some serious blog hoping - it's been forever! Can't wait!
Have a great Saturday!!!

Of course we all know that I am doing the scrap bin only thing, so all my papers (again) are from the masses of teeny tiny pieces I have left over. But I will get it all used - I vow!!!
I started with the background bright pink card stock from my DCWV's Jewel Textured Stack. Using a punch I made two frilly squares and layered them on top the background. On the left I used some bright blue cardstock and make a strip with a frilled edge on one side. I then mounted a piece of pale green and olive colored vined paper that has some sparkle. I made two different flowers and mounted them both with magenta jeweled brads. Lastly I used some ribbon from Michael's and made a knot. The stamp is by Studio G and is one of their clear sets you can buy at Michael's. I stamped it in Jet Black Ink and embossed it with Stamp-It's Hologram Powder.

I started off with a one off piece of paper I got from some gift wrapping a long time ago. It was in the scrap bin so that means I can use it! heehee I think it's really neat home made paper that is that beautiful olivey green I love, and with the tiny bit of gold sparkle through it, makes it perfect! I then picked a pale blue piece of card stock and a patterned strip with mini blue hearts on it and made the piece along the bottom. I added some thin white ribbon with a small bow to that bottom piece and added three jewels on the right hand side for bling. The image is from my Stampendous! Fairy pack. But for some reason I can't find it on their website now to add a link sorry! I stamped it with Jet Black Ink and embossed it with Stamp-It's Hologram Powder. I used my Crayola's to color the little B-fly in and used one of my punches to make it a circle. I mounted it on bright blue, then the same pale blue card stock. I hope it can be included int he challenge!
Thanks for coming by,
Have a great day,

The Bella image I chose is one of my three. I know, that sounds so piddly doesn't it? What's wrong with me? I LOVE Bella...better get some buying done! ha! This is Blingabella and I just love her. I hope that's what my engagement ring looks like on my finger from afar! hahahahaha!!!! I stamped her with Jet Black Ink and embossed her with Stamp-It's Hologram Powder. I colored her in with my Crayola's and added a clear jewel to her ring! (The bigger the better right?!?) I used all scraps from my bin so I don't know the names or whereabouts of much of this paper, but I do believe the pink came from my DCVW's Jewelled Textured Stack. The orange polka dot is from Creative Memories and has the same story to go along with it as my previous post. Sniff sniff...LOL. I punched out a circle with my patterned paper and mounted it on a pale orange, then the polka dot and trimmed the edges so they look frilly. The sentiment I used is from Stamping Bella too, and I stamped it with DuDrop Green Olive Ink and Embossed with Stamp- It's silver embossing powder. I used one of those curly silver clasps to put the sentiment on so it looks like it can be removed. On the left hand side I used some on my orange Core Color Coredinations paper and ripped a strip of it off. I used some green ribbon and tied 3 knots instead of a bow for a change. After adding my three bling in the bottom right hand corner, I called 'er done!
*** Don't forget to watch for next Tuesday's challenge over at Chicks With Inkpads! It's week three and I got the chance to be a sampler this time! First time ever - can't wait!!!! ***
