JAS 4th of July

Hello! The challenge this week at JAS is to make a 4th of July project, and here is mine-

The image of Lady Liberty is from the Graphics Fairy-a wonderful, mystical website of vintage images! I fussy cut the image after printing it onto white cardstock, and adhered it to my background paper. Here is a list of ingredients I used:
  1. Red & white twine-American Crafts.
  2. Lady Liberty image here.
  3. Red, white, blue stars-JoAnns
  4. Stamps sets from Mark's Finest Papers: Lady Liberty Mini and USA Heroes. White embossing powder and Watermark ink.
  5. Background paper is from a napkin!
  6. American Crafts Ivory Cardstock
Thank you for looking, and remember-Freedom isn't free. Tell a serviceman or servicewoman thank you.

JAS Baby

The challenge at JAS this week is to make a baby themed project, and I chose to make this card-

I've been trying watercolors again, and maybe, just maybe, I might be getting the hang of it. Really simple card using Paper Smooches set Pip Squeaks, and some Artist's Loft Shimmer watercolors for sky & grass. I matted the image with red cardstock, and debated on putting a sentiment on it but decided against it. I just liked the simplicity of it.

  1. Sizzix Iron Gate Die-silver shimmer paper by Wausau.
  2. Foil paper by Colorbok.

  4. Sentiment by Stampendous Stamps.
I really like the foil and shimmer paper contrast. Super easy to put together!

JAS Garden Challenge

 This week at JAS we were challenge to make a Garden themed project. My project is a card from a Rose Garden-

The gorgeous image is courtesy of The Graphics Fairy, where I downloaded this beautiful roses image.
I used a Tim Holtz distressing tool on all edges of my paper layers, added pale pink pearls and the ivory satin double ribbon. The yellow print of roses and the solid pink are some I had in my stash, so I don't know who made them.
   I'm going to leave this one blank so I can add a sentiment to the outside and/or inside to fit an occasion where I'll need it. I can see stamping the bottom of the rose layer with Happy Birthday, Congratulations, or even a wedding sentiment!

Update-this card is featured at the Graphics Fairy here!
