Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

It's that time again! Time for the Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge. This week the challenge is to use vellum on your project. We'd love for you to play along. If you do, be sure to leave us a link to your project on the challenge post on the JB blog and/or use keyword JBE075 when you upload to SCS or PCP.

First off, I have to tell you...I don't use vellum. I think this might actually be the very first ever card with vellum posted on my blog. I'm actually surprised that I even had any to use. After struggling for hours (literally - over 5 hours) I was finally able to come up with a card that I don't like but am not embarassed to post on my blog. I started off by trying to stamp on vellum and color an image and then I tried it again and finally after spending 4 hours and throwing my card in the garbage, I decided to just emboss the vellum with a Cuttlebug folder. Much easier. Like I said, I still am not thrilled with this card but I know when to say when.

I used tons of awesome Jacksonbelle goodies on my card....Basic Grey DP and Basic Grey bling flower centers, Shimmerz paint, MM trim, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and Martha Stewart leaf punch.

Oh and speaking of Shimmerz...ALL Shimmerz and Stickles are on sale at Jacksonbelle. It is a great time to stock up for all of your upcoming holiday projects!

Little Paper Shop Monday Challenge!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I managed to get a little rest and a lot of cleaning done around the house, so overall I'm pretty happy with the weekend! I also managed to get 3 cards done too, woohoo! One of those cards was for today...yikes! I usually try to have my design team projects done at least 2-3 weeks ahead of deadline but lately I've been a bit behind. It is seriously not like me to be working on a card 2 days before I need to have it done. Behind or not, I still got it done and I'm excited to share it with you.
It is Monday so that means it is time for another fun Little Paper Shop challenge. This week our challenge is a sketch courtesy of the talented Allison Fillo. We would love for you to play along with us. A random participant in this week's challenge will win the new Christmas set {Merry & Bright}. If you play along be sure to leave a link to your project on the challenge post on the LPS blog!
Here is the sketch:

For my card I used one of my favorite LPS stamp sets {Beautiful Things}. This set has a bunch of fun 2-step flowers as well as a bunch of GORGEOUS sentiments!
For more sketchy inspiration be sure to check out the blogs of the rest of the fabulous Little Paper Shop design team!

Thanks for stopping by today! Check back later this morning for the winner of my Little Paper Shop blog candy!
