A little Spring Tulip Card~



Hi crafty friends!

Today I am up over on the Little Blue Button Stamps Blog to share this very sweet card I made using the beautiful Tulips digital stamp. I absolutely love this digi stamp so much because it can be used in many different ways.

Here is the card I made

   

I printed this digi stamp onto some white cardstock and colored it using my spectrum noir markers. I also added some clear spectrum sparkle pen to the tulips to give them that gorgeous sparkle. It is hard to see in the photos but they are so very sparkly! I distressed the edges of my layer because I wanted some distressing as this card is rather clean and simple. The sentiment was stamped in black archival ink and the stamp is from a MME stamp set.  I adhered my layer to a standard A2 sized kraft card base and to finish it off, I added in a few pieces of washi tape and some gold hearts. I really love how this turned out. This card is going to a very special friend who is going through some things right now and I just want her to know I am thinking of her. :)

Challenge #73 with Dies R Us!








Hello sweet friends! 
Welcome to a new mid-month challenge at Dies R US! Our challenge today is all about shaped cards! We want to see all the many different ways you can create a card, but not in the traditional square or rectangle shape~. The design team and I, have some awesome projects to inspire you and help you create some shaped card projects.

So here is the card that I created for today's challenge.


My Card is a normal A2 in size and I used Stampin' Up cardstock and My Besties paper. For the shape of my card and the scalloped layer, I used Spellbinders- A2 Floral Ribbon Threader Dies. Love these dies because there are so many ways you can use them. I cut out some beautiful roses from the Sue Wilson Designs- Finishing Touches Blushing Rose Dies. I colored up the backing layer of the rose with a copic marker. Once I knew the placement of where I would put the roses, I cut out some gorgeous green ferns from the Sue Wilson Designs- Finishing Touches Maidenhair Fern Dies. Love these ferns! I had to trim a couple of them down a little bit shorter but they still look great. I started to adhere everything in place. Once they were in place, I cut out the sentiment using the Sue Wilson Designs- Expressions Best Wishes Die. I colored this sentiment up using the same copic as I did with the roses. To finish up the card, I added some glossy accents to the roses and sentiment. Added in a few clear sequins and used some liquid pearls around the front scalloped layer because it needed a little extra something.
Here are a few more photos.
   




 All of the dies that I used are highlighted in the links above and can be found in the Dies R Us store HERE


Well that is all I have for you today my friends. I appreciate you for taking time out of your day to visit me and see what I am up to. Please don't forget to stop by the Dies R US challenge blog to see what the rest of my design team sisters have created for you today. And make sure to link up your own project too!

Hello my wonderful friends!
I wanted to give an update regarding our current Design Team call. It has officially ended and once again, we had so many applicants! WOW! I am overwhelmed by the support from so many of you and the huge interest in wanting the opportunity to design for us! It was extremely hard to narrow it down. If you did not make the team this term, please do not let that discourage you! I would really like for you to apply again when you see another DT Call open up.

 I know that these girls are just as excited to spill the beans on their blogs too so without keeping it secret any longer, I would love to announce the next term of designers for Jo's Scrap Shack! We have brought on 4 new designers and the rest of my designers stayed on for this term. Some of my girls have been with me for years, so you will see some familiar names and faces and then we have the new designers too! The new designers have a little (*) next to their name. Please take a minute to visit their blogs and congratulate them and make sure to subscribe so that you do not miss out on their beautiful work. These gals are very talented and I am super excited to call them my sister! I personally want to welcome each of you, (new & current) to the design team and I know you will create amazing art!
