Jacksonbelle Tuesday

Here we are at Tuesday once again and time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishment Design Team Challenge! This week it is time for a Color Challenge and DT member Lila Holgate has chosen to challenge us to use the color PINK ! I'm not sure that is much of a stretch for me because it is a color that I truly love! We would love to have you join us with this fun challenge! If you should decide to play along, please either link your card to a comment on this post or if you upload to SCS use JBE014 in the keycode. We want to be able to see everyone's beautiful pink creations! Be sure to check out the rest of the DTs submissions for this challenge on each of their individual blogs:
You will, also, want to be sure to check out Jacksonbelle Embellishments to see all the new goodies that are available- new cuttlebug, fall and holiday Inkadinkado stamps, new Cosmo Cricket... the list goes on and on! I made my challenge card this weekend to take to one of my little great nieces for her birthday. The pink PP I choose to use was Basic Grey Two Scoops. I loved the idea of using the sweet ice creamie colors with the Inkadinkado Birthday Cupcakes for a little one-year-olds card! I stamped the largest cupcake image using Momento Tuxedo Black on 3 different pieces of the 6 x6 patterned paper and paper pieced it for a fun dimensional look. I added some white bugle beads as sprinkles, then topped it off the with little "icing" rosebud from the set. The rosebud was first colored with Copic markers then I added some chunky pink glitter from SU. I repeated the rosebud to more times to add as accents on the card. The Nestabilities mat is cut from vellum then the edges are trimmed with the same pink chunky glitter. The ribbon is a sheer piece of American craft topped with a piece of soft yellow rickrack by BG. Rachel starts preschool tomorrow so that mean Mary Elizabeth and I are back to our homeschool glasses. Although it does make for a busy schedule, it will definitely feel good to be back into a routine! Actually makes it easier to find stamping time! It's ALWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care, Beth
