The Challenge: No Stamping!

Eeek! I thought the no stamping challenge would be fun, which it was. But it was more of a challenge than I expected. If you'd like to play along with this week's Jacksonbelle Embellishments challenge, we'd love to have you join us! Just make a card or project using NO STAMPING! You don't have to use Jacksonbelle products if you don't have them yet. Please use keyword JBE066 and leave us a message on the Jbelle blog. For my card, I started with this SO CUTE cupcake, cut from some Pink Paislee paper. I colored over the cherry with a clear glaze pen. I also used some more patterns from the Sweet Cakes line. I added a Basic Grey button (Urban Prairie line) Prima Mini Me's and gemstones, and the Cuttlebug "hi" (from Olivia alpha). The yellow scallops were cut with my long scallop rectangle nesties.

If you haven't checked it out yet, don't miss the Dollar Days sale going on for a limited time at the Jacksonbelle store. You will find some amazing deals. I just hope I get my butt in gear before it's all gone. LOL.

What's In It?
Stamps: NONE
Paper: sweet cakes (pink paislee), coral, saffron (SU)
Ink: NONE
Other: button (urban prairie: basic grey), thread, ribbon, long scallop rectangle nestie, pearl cluster, gemstones and mini me's (Prima), olivia alphabet (cuttlebug), pop dots, clear glaze pen
