Blingz Bunnies!

I don't know about you, but I am SO in love with the new colors of Blingz! Pixie Dust is my absolute favorite color ever! Not sure if you noticed but these new colors coordinate perfect with the new Basic Grey Bittersweet papers! For my card I used Blingz Pixie Dust, Blingz Hottie Pink, Basic Grey Bittersweet designer paper, May Arts ribbon and this adorable Inkadinkado bunny stamp all from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. The bunnies are painted with Blingz Pixie Dust and Blingz Hottie Pink. Aren't they just adorable!

Here is a close-up photo of the bunnies taken with the flash on.
Supplies used: Blingz Pixie Dust, Blingz Hottie Pink, Inkadinkado mod bunny stamp, Basic Grey DP, Bazzill cardstock, May Arts ribbon, Michael's self adhesive rhinestones, foam dimensionals, sentiment was printed out on the computer.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge...Stitch it up!!!

It's that time again...time for another Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge! This week's challenge is a fun one! Stitch it up! Lindsey loves faux stitching, so she challenged us to add some stitching to our projects... whether it is faux or REAL!!! We would love for you to play along with us. If you do, please use the keyword JBE037 when uploading to SCS or PCP.
Because I broke the needle on my sewing machine and still haven't replaced it, I decided to use faux stitching rub on tape from Daisy D's. This stuff is super cool and it is super easy to use. It works just like a tape runner. Best thing is, if you make a mistake you can just erase it with an adhesive eraser! Jacksonbelle carries several styles for you to choose from! I also used several other awesome Jacksonbelle products on my card....Memory Box DP, Basic Grey glazed brad, Prima flower (was white and I colored it with a black Prismacolor marker), May Arts ribbon and Pixie Dust Shimmerz Blingz (my absolute FAVORITE ever!).
The stiched flower stamp is from DRS Designs.
I paper pieced my flower petals and leaves with Memory Box paper that I painted with Shimmerz Pixie Dust Blingz. Here is a close-up to show how much shimmer the Blingz adds!

DRS Designs blog challenge!

This week's challenge for the DT was to use any of the DRS recognition stamps on their projects. DRS has a ton of these wonderful should definitely check them out! Of course the intended use of these images is for the back of your cards/projects but what about thinking outside the box and using them in other ways??

We would love for you to play along in our challenges. You do not need DRS images to play but if you have them, why not use them! If you play along, be sure to come back to this post and post a direct link to your project so we can check it out. We want you to inspire us! Also, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword - DRSC13.

Without further is my project....
This challenge was REALLY difficult. I just couldn't figure out how to feature a "handmade by" stamp on the front of my card. After looking through my stash of stamps I saw the cat print stamp and came up with this idea. I know there are a lot of animal lovers who send cards from their pets so I decided to make this card "handmade by Felix" (Felix is the only name I could come up with that sounded cat-like enough to make this idea work).
If you decide to take on this huge challenge, we would love to see your projects...please be sure to leave a link to your projects either on this post or on the DRS Designs blog!

DRS Designs is having another giveaway!!! We'll make it easier for you this week though!!! This week the prize is a roll of, according to Cathy, the best adhesive she has ever used!!!

It is a roll of two sided tape (1/2" x 36 yards) and all you have to do is leave a comment on the challenge post on the DRS Designs blog indicating which DRS image is your favorite!
We'll draw a random winner on Sunday night Feb. 8, 2009.

I hope everyone is having a great day! Thanks for stopping by today!
