Trending at JUGS for Challlenge #266

from our First Time HOST - CHRIS


This card was made after I was inspired by a card
I got some time ago from my friend Karen Shirey
so I am really casing her card.
I used the same stamp set - Vogue Vases from Gina K Designs
The sentiment is also from Gina K and I think it is from
a grab bag I won.
For the chalk board affect I used white Versa Magic chalk ink
 for the flowers on the front and the leaves inside.
Spellbinders Petite Ovals
Designer Paper from my stash
Heat embossed the case with sticky embossing powder
and added Diamond Dust for sparkle.
A little rick rack as a shelf for the popped Vase.
Kaisercraft Pearls on the centre of the flowers.
I love this technique and thanks to Chris I
 enjoyed making my card for this weeks
over at JUGS
Please hop over and see what the rest of
THE JUGHEADS and our Guest Tajanna
 have made.
And of course I hope you are inspired and
you get the chance to create your project
and enter it in this weeks challenge.
then you could be in the running to join us
as our Guest Designer in the near future.
And a bonus -
Over at Stamp TV this weeks
Mix It Up Monday the challenge is to
Use a Gina K stamp set from the Past
You can find all the details Here
I think the Vogue Vase stamp set would
have been one of my first of many stamps
and still remains a firm favourite which doesn't need
dusting off as it is used often.
Thanks to another Karen - the Host -  Karen Hightower
for perfect timing of this challenge as it fitted
in perfectly for my DT card for this weeks
JUGS Trend Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by

It's a MOD Squad Challenge

The Current Challenge over at the Mod Squad
is to make a card with a doily.
Easy eh?
Thanks to this week's Host
You can find all the details Here
My card is Two Fold. Not only can I enter it in
this challenge but also the current one over at
Stamp TV for the MIUM Challenge
hosted by Karen Hightower
I certainly used some of my Gina K favourites on this card
Vogue Vases
Springtime Silhouettes
Fanciful Tags and
Dogwood & Butterfly
and the required doily, SU ribbon and ink
Embossing folder is Royalty by Couture Creations
Kaisercraft pearl on flower centre.
Thanks for dropping by and hope you like what I made
and you will come back again.
So till next time

Challenge Time at Inspired by Stamping and The Paper Players

It is that time of the month when Inspired by Stamping
 have their current challenges going
 and a new one at The Paper Players
But you can find all the details for the others from IBS Here
and The Paper Players Here
 I chose to use the Colour Challenge for my inspiration.
They are such pretty colours but decided to
move away from the Christmas theme and
ink up one of the IBS stamps from Vintage Pieces
as my feature.
The background was stamped from IBS Elegant Flowers
in  Memento London Fog and Summer Blue
I also used the following items -
Spellbinders Floral Ovals
Spellbinders Vintage Lace Motifs
IBS sentiment from A Lovely Birthday
IBS Vintage Banners
MS Punch
Kaisercraft Red Pearls
Homemade flowers
Sizzix leaf die
Memento Love Letter
Added a touch of clear Wink of Stella
to the flowers and Jug.
I would also like to enter this card in the current challenge
at The Paper Players featuring something
Vintage or Antique.
I thought the IBS stamps would make
a perfect match for this challenge.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek
and hope you will come back again soon.
