Jacksonbelle Tuesday: No Stamping Allowed!

Well good morning everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your week so far. I have spent a lot of my time in my classroom since I have to go back in just 8 short days! Now, I am kind of excited to start back up but I know that once I do, I will be missing my stamping time. Thank goodness we still get Friday's off! :)

Anyway, today's Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge was to create a non-stamped card! Now, for some this may seem kind of tricky but I actually quite enjoy making cards this way. It's a lot less pressure (in my opinion) because you don't have to worry about smudging any ink or coloring out of the lines! :D Besides, this week's featured product at the Jacksonbelle store is Shimmerz and I had been DYING to use my new Shimmerz Spritz! For my card I pulled out two flowers from my SU! Pretties Kit. I sprayed some Eucalyptus Shimmerz Spritz on the big flower and painted some Hottie Pink Shimmerz Blingz on the smaller flower! I also added some Hottie Pink Shimmerz Blingz to the plaid paper as well so that it had a little bit of sparkle. The designer paper that I used is BasicGrey's Leomande pack and the ribbon is May Arts Ivory Satin ribbon! I finished the card up by using a Stampin' Up! rub-on as well as some Daisy D Rhinestones!

Well, that's it for today's card! Make sure to check out this week's challenge details on the Jacksonbelle blog as well as the other Jacksonbelle girls!
