Pink and Grey Thank You

One of my favorite parts of the Stamping Royalty contest is when the winners have been notified and I can share the cards I sent in!!! They are always cards that I put a lot of effort into, so I love to share them. Today I am showing you one of my simpler designs. I loved the color combination on this one and had fun stamping the diamonds in place.

Pink and Grey Thank You

The diamonds are from the Date Night stamp set from Chickaniddy Crafts. This is SUCH a fun stamp set! I combined them with a great new sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Sentiments set. LOVE it!

Diamond Thank You (detail)

Looking at this one, my diamonds really needed to be more precise, but I still love the design, so I may even stamp a few of these out just to have and use because it is a great versatile design and that sentiment set has lots of options, too! Love that!!!

I will continue to share some of my cards over the course of this week! YAY!!!

Oh....and Yeah... sooo... did I mention that I WON????!!!!  Not in this category, of course, but the announcement is on the Paper Crafts Blog now, so I can shout it from the rooftops!!!!  YAY!!!!!

Have a Happy!


You're a Good Egg, CAS-ually Speaking

It is time for a brand new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge and this one is fun!  It's the GOOD EGG challenge - we want to see you use ovals in your design!  I will be honest, I don't use much in the way of ovals, so this was genuinely a challenge for me, but I was SO glad I pushed myself because this card turned out to be a beauty!

Thanks for Everything

Yup.  *sigh*  It makes me happy.  I created the darker background behind the vellum by layering a dark grey cardstock beneath the white panel.  I used foam tape to pop up the white panel with the vellum window so there is still space between them giving it a darker, but super airy and pretty look.  I am happy with it.  Quitely so, actually.

Thanks for Everything (detail)

Be sure to head on over to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog to check out what the rest of the team has come up with for this one.  I think you are going to be ready to dig some ovals out of your stash pretty quickly!!!  Good stuff, I tell ya!

Anyway...you can find links to the goodies I used on this one below.  Thanks for reading, you guys.  Sometimes I don't think I say that enough, but I really do appreciate your visits and your comments.  They pretty much make my day.  For reals.

Have a Happy!

Thinking of You

I excited to have my second post for Viva Las Vegas Stamps up today! I fell in LOVE with this Map of the World stamp the moment I saw it and I was so excited to use it for a fun card! I cannot even lie, you guys. I love how this one turned out! Viva Las Vegas was super nice and tossed a tiny airplane stamp into my order for free and it was a PERFECT fit with the map! LOVE IT!!!

Thinking of You Worldwide

I combined the images with a couple of great sentiment stickers from Pebbles. I LOVE THEM! And this card. And the stamps. And the colors. Yup. I'm pretty much just all around in love, what can I tell ya, folks? Keepin' it real here at Just Jingle, that's all.

Let's Go Shopping!

I haven't done a favorites post lately, so I thought I would share a few things I've purchased lately and found that I just LOVE!!! And if I love it, I bet you will, too!  Check it!

From Hero Arts:

This Capture Prism stamp is just AWESOME!  I have used it and really loved what I created and I have seen so many fabulous ideas I can't wait to play with it more!

This one is from the new Highline collection and it is the coolest chalkboard background stamp EVER!  I used it on a card recently and fell head over heels, dude.  It's wicked awesome.  I can't show you that card yet, but all in due time, my friends, all in due time!

From Basic Grey:

Okay, so this next one caught me off guard.  Basic Grey, to be honest, had fallen out of my sights a bit.  I hadn't been loving their stuff, but their recent CHA release was like HOLY WOW!  Spice Market was probably the one I was least interested in UNTIL I saw it used!  WHOA, dude.  For reals.  Well, I bought it, I love it.  You need it.  'Nough said.

And this one.  *SWOON!*  Just look at these happy colors.  This one came as no surprise.  I saw it.  I loved it.  End of story.  LOL!  The Fresh Cut collection is just wonderful for spring!  And happy days.  I like happy days.

Hello, cuteness.  It's so nice to meet you!  That's pretty much the feeling that Chickaniddy stuff gives me.  Love it.  Tones.  It has a funky mix of softness, frill, graphic, and floral.  I like it.  It's different.  These Date Night stamps...yup...totes adorbs, folks.  Totes. Adorbs.  AND...they are made in the US and great quality. This doesn't always happen with paper companies so I was quite happy when I got these in hand and found them to be super fabulous!

And the STICKERS!  Yup.  Good 'ole fashioned STICKERS.  I love them.  And I love that they are only 99 cents and I can buy two sets...one to use and one to hoard.  Naturally.  HA!  These are the Date Night Banner stickers and I super duper love the diamonds!  LOVE THEM!  I need more.  You know, now that I think about it... 

Hello to my new best friend, otherwise known as the Wide Stripes Background Stamp.  For reals, you guys.  FOR. REALS.  It's flippin' awesome.  And that's all I can even say about that.

And this one.  Handwritten Borders.  WHOA is this stamp set useful!  I've pulled it out several times and honestly I have only had it for a couple of weeks!  It is a great go-to and instantly turned into a staple in my studio!  Love it!

And, finally (because I could totally do this all day, but you probably have stuff to do), we come to a couple of favorites from Paper Smooches:

Okay, folks, don't just think rainbows on this one, think curves, half circles, full circles, colors, and overall amazeballs happenings.  Because that is what this handy dandy little rainbow die will offer you.  For reals.  SUCH a fun die to have on hand!  I love it.  Tons.

And this one.  Another instant staple.  And yes, I recognize that I am showing you TWO scripty sentiment sets, but seriously, I use both and I use the A LOT!  This Scripty Sayings set gives you a ton of everyday sentiments that are easy to add to a card without being overly simple.  I love it.  Super lots.

And, now it's time to go!  I hope you have enjoyed this little shopping with Jingle experience today!  Have fun with your new goodies!  :)

Have a Happy!
