Friday Fun Color Challenge and Friends With Flair!

This week's Friday Fun Challenge was issued by our Sassy girl Kim, but she's had to step down from stamping so she's no longer playing with us.

Her challenge is to use the following Halloween colors: Purple, Green, Orange and Brown but we've added a twist and it CANNOT be a Halloween card!!

The exciting news is, we have added a new Friday Fun girl to the show, Christi Snow at Altered Ambitions. We are so excited to have her join us and know you are too :)

Here is my card using Crazy for Daisies, the free kit you can get with the October Kit of the Month WHEREVER YOU GO from Unity!

It's also a Friends With Flair Friday and you need to head to the Unity BLOG so you can see all the players and all the FAB sales and new releases going on at Unity this weekend!

Be sure to check out the other Friday Fun Girls blogs for more inspiration. We would love for you to play with us- just use keyword FFC55 when uploading to your SCS gallery.

~*~Crazy for Daisies~*~

Today the Unity Design Team is showing off the FREE kit you get with the October Kit of the Month, Crazy for Daisies!

I don't know what I was thinking last night making these bright, crazy cards, maybe I was inspired by the stamp name CRAZY for Daisies, ha!

Get your sunglasses on because I must have been thinking of my Halloween costume when I made this BRIGHT card:

and this one....who knows what I was thinking adding the lone pink flower...it's just me being me I guess....lol:
Did I wake you up?? hehe :)

I hope you'll check out the rest of the Design Team (list to the right >>) and see how they used this fun set. You can still get this stamp set until the 31st, so 4 more days!!


And make sure you come back tomorrow! It's going to be a day full of HUGE sales and FUN! There are going to be NEW, never releases stamps for $3.10 and after tomorrow they won't be for sale again until after Winter CHA in January!
They are MUST HAVES!

Tuesday 1, 2, 3!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Since it is Tuesday, it is time for another fun Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge!
The challenge this week is called 1-2-3. This means you can use 1 stamp (yep, only 1), 2 embellishments and 3 layers of paper.

I think I bombed this one because after looking I see that the paper piecing might be another "layer" and the fluffy and shiny stuff I used might be "embellishments"....oops!

I used THIS Stampavie stamp for my card and Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses paper:

We’d love for you to play along! If you do be sure to leave us a link to your creation in the comments section of this post and/or use keyword JBE077 when uploading to SCS or PCP!

Friday Fun and Friends With Flair!

I didn't make a card, YAY! I am so proud of myself, y'all just don't know!
I am so afraid of things that are not cards, this was quite an adventure:)

Today the Friday Fun girls are making boxes/bags/stuff that isn't a card....

For my project I used this Scor-Pal tutorial and altered it a little bit to make it bigger so it would fit the stamp set I wanted to use and made a tea light holder for Christmas.

I used Bright and Merry Winter Wishes on all 4 sides.
**sorry I don't have a pic of it lit up but it's really pretty...I took about 50 pics of it in the dark and just couldn't make it look right**

Here's the front:
One of the sides, I gold embossed the ornament and colored it with markers on the inside:
Other side, I white embossed the snowflake:
Swirly word stamp on the back:
Well, what do you think??
I am so happy with this little project and it was SO easy to do!!

If you want to play along with the Friday Fun Challenge (and we would love it if you did) just use keyword FFC54 when you upload to SCS so we can find your bag, box or container.

*Who Does That?!?* Thursday!

It's another fabulous Who Does That Thursday with Unity and I am so glad you hopped over to see me!!

Make sure you hit the Unity Stamp Co. blog to find out all the specials and fun going on today!


My card today was made by unanimous vote of my husband and daughter. They saw the sock monkey stamp on my stamping table and said "you HAVE to make a card using the sock monkey!", so I did:
The sock monkey and this wonderful saying are from the October Kit of the Month Wherever You Go

I would have made 2 cards for you today but I was busy helping Rachel with her Senior Crown. The Sr. class at her school has a tradition of making cool crowns (out of Burger King crowns!) for Spirit Week and wearing them and hers needed some bedazzling! We used all the blue embellishments we could find in my stash and the Frame This alphabet to make her crown and I am pretty sure hers will be the most blinged out one in the whole school!

She was SO excited to wear it today!


THANKS for stopping by to see my Who Does That card and for listening to my Crown story!!

I really appreciate it!!


Here are some of the GREAT specials going on today...I mean, really, WHO DOES THAT???

FIRST 50 orders over $25 get This is the Time {mini} FOR FREE!
EVERY SINGLE ORDER gets 5 FREE STAMPS {Random Stamps}

Choices:
Jolly Little Winter
Little Me
Folk Inspired

GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFTS!

Tuesdays with Vellum

Hi everyone!!

Today's Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge is to use vellum!

I don't really know if I've ever used vellum on a card, if I have it was so long ago I forgot but this card was quite fun to make!

At 1st I just stared at the piece of vellum and thought I would have to use brads or maybe I should emboss it with my Cuttlebug...but then I had the idea (which I am sure is not an original one, lol!!) to stamp on it and try to color on it, so I did and then I decided to stamp and color on a piece of white cardstock and see if I could see the color through the vellum and so on and so forth and this is what I came up with. Stamping for me, sometimes, is a process...a long and unnecessarily drawn out one ;)

Hope you like what I made:)

The stamps I used are from Inkadinkado.

I did figure out something exciting on this vellum adventure! The top edges of the vellum needed to be held down somehow and brads wouldn't work so I put a tiny dot of Mono-Multi in the corner just to see if it would hold and not show through and it worked!! So I put a little on all of the corners and some at the bottom under the words. It dried totally clear and you can't see it at all!

Monday Masculinity

Today is Monday Challenge Day!

Today’s Challenge is a masculine card.
The Monday Challenge players:

AJ

Jennifer

Jeanne

Amber

Feel free to join us in this challenge! Please link your projects to at least one of our blogs so we can find it!!!

Here's my card using the Papertrey Ink set called Damask Designs. The paper is from Papertrey Ink, too. I've had this stamp set for months and finally decided to play with it!

The sketch I used is from the Clean and Simple Stamping, layout #63!

This next card has nothing to do with the Monday challenge, it's just one I made while I had the Papertrey Ink goodies out.
I wanted to try the Try a New Technique from last Monday on SCS, Faux Suede.

The black layer is the "faux suede" layer and in person it is very cool looking and really does look like suede!


Thanks for stopping by today!!
