JAS Challenge Use Silver Notations

At JAS this week, the challenge is to use silver notations, so this is what I came up with-

At the end of August it will be 20 years of married bliss, and I made this card for my wonderful husband. Here is a list of ingredients-

  1. Card is made out of DCWV black & white glitter alphabet stack cardstock.
  2. Lettering is cut using Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge out of teal blue foil paper (Colorbok, Wal-Mart)
  3. Silver notations are from same cartridage, silver Wausau shimmer paper.
  4. Inside sentiment copied from internet.
I hope you enjoyed this card!

JAS Anniversary and/or Wedding Challenge

At JAS the challenge is to make a Wedding or Anniversary project, and here is mine-

The overlay die cut is from Sizzix, called Iron Gate and cut from Wausau Gold Shimmer paper. The background is a black linen from DCVW Black Currant stack. I wanted to amp it up a bit, so I sprayed gold glitter from Kryon on the background paper and was so pleased with the result that I sprayed the Prima Roses with the gold glitter too! After attaching everything to the card I added black pearls along the sentiment from the Cricut stamp set Cherish, which was embossed in black Zing powder.

I wanted it to be elegant, and I might have accomplished it.

Thanks for looking!

This had been entered at Die Cuttin' Diva's a couple of weeks ago (I wish challenges and my projects for JAS would coincide once in a while) ETA-Chosen as a Challenge Showcase Pick at Die Cuttin' Divas!

JAS Kraft, Black & White Challenge

At JAS the challenge was to make a project with Kraft, Black & White. I wanted to make a special birthday card for a friend of mine, so I found my Unity Happy Birthday stamp and went to work! I also entered this at Unity's Friends with Flair last week, so I've updated this post to reflect that.

After I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment I added small punched black flowers to the banner on the sentiment, along with rhinestone centers. The flowers were assembled using flowers from my stash. The quatrefoil background was cut with my Cricut, along with the ribbon insert border.

Thanks for looking!

Welcome to JAS Summertime challenge (which I have also shared over at Exploring Cricut and More) and here is my project-

This was made with Formal Occasion! It has several scenes towards the back of the booklet, so check it out. The background is a dark teal glitter paper (unknown), the blue, red and brown is from Recollections, green glitter paper is Colorbok and the off white is from American Crafts. The cloud was cut from Artiste, and stamped with a Technique Tuesday sentiment in Martha Stewart Dusk Blue ink.

I wish I was there! Thanks for looking.
