Jacksonbelle Tuesday

Agh! I can't believe how long it has been since I lasted posted! I'd like to say something mysterious like I've been working on secret projects or something exciting like I've been traveling on vacation but the truth of the matter is day to day life has been extra busy AND to top it off my camera has been missing for about a week. Yesterday, I finally MADE myself go through the play room and low and behold, there is was. My little Rachel is quite the photo bug and has sticky fingers when it comes to my camera. Fortunately, it is not the greatest camera. But I will have to be more diligent with her when we finally get a new one. So for today's challenge, the Jacksonbelle DT was to CASE a card from the blog or gallery of our own Michelle Woerner! Wowsers, there was a plethora of gorgeousness from which to choose. I decided I had to CASE the LO of this beautiful card. I love the 3 panel background and the flowers in the corner! Instead of Primas, I die cut my own flowers using Sprout PP by Memory Box and this new Cookie Cutter die from Quickutz! I these dies in my Cuttlebug with a Spellbinder magnetic pad to keep everything and place and they worked wonderfully! After die cutting, I inked the edges with pink chalk ink then painted them with Angel Dust Shimmerz. The center are Glitter Dots by Jesse James- one of my most favorite forms of bling! My stamp is Duet by Inkadinkado, sentiment is A Muse, and ribbon is May Arts. I really enjoyed making those flowers and see this die set getting much use in the future. Be sure to stop over at the Jackonsbelle Embellishment blog for a cameo of Michelle and another look at her Shimmerz tutorial (perfect if you are wondering what to do with those little pots of glitter goodness.) Also, be sure to check out the rest of the DT blogs for some rockin' inspiration!

We would love to have you play along and if you do, please, either link your card to a comment on the Jacksonbelle Blog OR use JBE038 in the keywords to your SCS gallery- we want to see your beautiful creations! Wishing you fun Times and inky fingers! Take care!
