DAy 124 - Computer Graphic

So here's the Challenge -- use your word processor to create an image rather then using a stamp.

So google here I come -- searched for butterfly and colouring pages -- Love this butterfly!!

Let the printing and colouring begin, and here's the finished product.


Day 144's Challenge was to do a card with layers -- well I think this is darn near perfect!! Brian and I were watching a cooking show and the way that the chef wrapped something reminded me of the way my mom would wrap my sandwiches for lunch when i was little. And from that this card was born.


Playing Catch up -- Day 123

Playing Catch up -- so to reach my goal of getting all the challenges completed for July, I have to play a bit of catch up -- So here's day 123

365 Cards Challenge for the day was to use this sketch -- with the limitation that you must leave the white space bare.

Here's what I was able to create before running off to the gym for a PT session.

Day 145 -- Ad Inspired

4th Challenge posted today!!! wow I'm on a roll -- let's hope it continues.

This was Thursday's Challenge for this week -- we had to find inspiration from the picture posted.

I took the monogram from this, as well as the butterflies and orange colour. I'm really happy with this card. And even better it only took about 15 minutes. I'm so excited when things just come together.

Here's what I created!

Day 147 Challenge - Scraplift

So today's challenge was to scraplift an idea from one of the DT from 365 Cards Blog. So after some searching I came upon this card from Gloria. Here's a picture of her card:

Here is my interpretation of her card. I mad this one for friends of ours who recently got married, and we're finally getting around to sitting down with them to have coffee and get them their gift.

Challenge 146 - Mirror Me

Here's my card for the Mirror Me Challenge.
The challenge was to mirror everything in the card except the sentiment of course. I chose to go against the norm, and have my mirror going diagonally across the card rather than horizontal or vertical.

I'm totally in love with this card and what I was able to create with just some paper flowers and stolen ribbon (thanks Regan!) and a super cute stamp!

supplies: paper - papertrey, flowers - prima, ribbon - papertrey, ink - papertrey.

Day 143 -- Keep it to yourself

So the point of today's challenge is to try to evoke the sentiment of the card without having to state it on the front. This weeks was to be a sympathy card.

I hope that i was able to show that through this card -- and I got to use my new Papertrey stamps for the first time for this one.

The technique is reverse embossing, and I'm totally going to use this technique again.

Movie Monday? - Day 142

So today's card is to be inspired by the movie Twilight. It has to be black and red, with some bling.

Well I just started book 3 -- and i'm loving the series -- so i decided to make this card for the person that allows me the freedom to read rather then pay attention to him 24/7

Love you babe!!

Day 139 - Paper Piercing

Today's Challenge was to try a technique: paper piercing.

So here is my attempt at it. I took a 2 step stamp from SU and used the outline as my pattern for piercing the patter, and then used the solid to accent it.

Now I just have to find someone to mail this out to.

Day 138 - and I quote

The Challenge -- use a quote on your card. My Grandma is getting re married and we're having a tea for her. I thought this card would be great to tell her how I feel. I miss my grandfather, a lot some days, but I'm so excited that Grandma has found someone to take care of and take care of her.

The quote reads:
Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit. ~ Kahlil Gibran

I love this tree stamp from SU, and adding stickles pearls to create some blossoms.

Day 137 - Binding

In a Bind -- you have to bind to pieces of something to create a card.

I went the simple way and used eyelets to bind two pieces of card stock together. I also used BG buttons to create flowers, and stitched the stems and the phrase, love you.

Card is in the mail on it's way to a very special person in my life. Love you lots Aunt Barb!

Day 136 - Red Black and White

Oh My!! So since my entire wedding album is red black and white - this challenge was fun, and it got me out of my wedding box that I was in.

Love this card, and I'll try to get a better picture of it soon.

Day 135 - Windows

Today's challenge is to create a window from the outside looking in.

I created this card to send to my SIL, just to say hi, and that I miss her.

This was a bit of a challenge, since I was without 20 different ink colours, but I got it done.

Challenge 125 - I'm Here

Brian and I are so excited that we are going to be Uncle and Aunt again in the near future -- so in true Jac fashion I offered to make some birth announcements for Joshua's pending arrival. Just so happens that it fits in with this challenge perfectly.

The Challenge -- to create a closure on your card --- I used ribbon.

Enjoy! -- and I'll keep you posted on Joshua's arrival!
