Enjoy the weekend!

It looks like it is going to be a great weekend around here! The house is clean and I finally get some time tonight (without the kids) to stamp! I haven't had much stamping time in days and I am so excited about tonight. My friend Jen is coming over and we are going to stamp the night away!

Today I have another simple but elegant card to share. I made this card with a wedding in mind but I guess it could be used for other occasions too. The sentiment stamp is from DRS Designs.
For wedding cards I tend to try and only use black and white for some reason, personal preference I guess. I just think these colors make a card look so elegant. I also love to add some bling or shimmer...for this card I used both. I added some self adhesive rhinestones to the corners and to finish it off I painted a white Prima flower with Angel Wings Shimmerz. Angel Wings is my absolute favorite color of Shimmerz because you can use it on any color flower or cardstock and it looks just beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Busy busy busy

Sorry for the short posts lately, but things are just crazy busy around here. I'm stealing one of the last cards from my stash to share today. I made this card a month or so ago for one of the Paper Makeup Stamps challenges. I absolutely love the Dustin Pike dinos that are sold at Paper Makeup Stamps. I thought the EK Success dino punch coordinated great with this image.Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you are all having a great week!

This week if you play along with us, you will have a chance to win some fabulous goodies from Jacksonbelle embellishments! All you need to do is make a card using this week's sketch and post a link to your creation on the Tuesday challenge post on the Jacksonbelle blog.

The lucky winner will receive a prize package that includes a package of Prima silver Galaxy Stars, a GORGEOUS Inkadinkado Summers Parade wood mounted stamp, and a Cosmo Cricket blackboard album!

Here is this week's sketch:

As crazy as this is for me to say....I made a NO STAMPING card for this week's challenge! There is absolutely zero stamping on this card. The sentiment panel comes from a piece from the Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste designer paper pack. Even though there were no stamps used, I did use a ton of fabulous products from Jacksonbelle Embellishments...Cosmo Cricket designer paper (ALL Cosmo Cricket is 25% off this week at JB), Prima flowers, Prima Say it in Crystals, Cuttlebug embossing folder , May Arts ribbon and Shimmerz paint!
