Jacksonbelle Tuesday


It is Tuesday once again and time for the Jacksonbelle Embellishments Design Team challenge. This week's challenge was to use products from October Afternoon. OA has quickly found its place on my favorites list. The fun, whimsical designs are just right for me! As always, it just thrills us to have others play along with our challenges. If you do, please use JBE036 in the keywords when uploading to your SCS gallery OR link it to a comment in the JBE Store Blog. To get the mojo going, feel free to stop by the other DT blogs for some inspiration 'belle style!

My challenge card today is more of a scrappy card. The only stamping is the little words in the background- "smile" and "just having fun" from the Detours clear stamp set. I so... wanted to use these cute little monsties from the Night Light line but did not have the stamps. So I got out my trusty Cutter Bees and sniped these 3 little guys from a piece of the "Louie" PP ("Louie Louie, oh no Me gotta go Aye-yi-yi-yi- yep now THAT is going through my head)! To give them a bit of a slimy look, I painted them with coordinating Shimmerz. After painting, I put the little guys to the side to make the rest of my card. To make the little scales, I simply punched out several ovals, then cut them in half. Next, I inked the edges and finally, added a bit of Peeled Paint Distress Stickles to the tips. I layered them onto my card base (Jack PP), stamped my words using Palette inks and foam popped this cute little trio to the front of the card. Since this will probably go to a little guy, I opted for no ribbon (it was hard, let me tell you) and used a few MM green glitter brads. With 2 DD, I don't need boy cards often but next time I do I'll be ready! Wishing you fun Times and inky fingers! Take care!
