Welcome to another challenge of the month from Jay Gee's Nook and Judith has put all these inspiration photos for this Christmas theme challenge. It was full of Christmas items that you could create. This including tags, gift boxes/bags, wrapping, decorations or even traditional/non traditional Christmas theme.
I've create a simple card using Wplus9 Design Studio stamps as I always adore Dawn's creation and the bold satin ribbon are perfect touch to finished off the card. As this year Christmas falls on a Sunday which we will not have post this day :) Therefore, the next challenge will be on the 8th January 2012.

Since this is the last challenge of the year, I do hope you enjoy the challenge and I can't wait to see what you've create.

Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #13


Welcome to Jay Gee's Nook brand new challenge. This month challenge is slightly different compared with the previous challenges where you get to create a card base on an inspiration photo. However, in this challenge you have to create a non-holiday card using holiday stamps such as Christmas, Easter etc. This might challenge you to think outside the box.

I decided to go with PTI stamp which called Holiday Lights :) I turn this set of stamps into a all occasion card instead of a holiday card.
I hope you take some times to join this challenge and I can't wait to see your creation.

Jay Gee's Nook DT: Merry Christmas


Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Today card is about "Masking Technique" and also DT's post from Jay Gee's Nook blog. In fact, I am not a masking type of person and today tag was my first time in trying. I always inspired by Cristina masking skills, she really "Master in Masking" and this card is one of the example that challenge me to try at least once. I've used For the Love of Dots stamps from Practicing Creativity to create this tag and it turn out quite unexpected!

Just thought it would be great idea too in approaching mass produce.

Merry Christmas
I hope you enjoy today's tag and hopefully give you some inspiration.

Jay Gee's Nook DT: so Sweet of you

Hope you have a blessed weekend! Today, we have another well known new talented crafting member joining the design team. Welcome Iwona Palamountain (Chupa) to the team :)
Back to today's card, have you ever wonder you have a stamp set with different sentiments in it and you seldom use them? It happens to me all the while, so today this card mainly focusing on sentiments. The "Sweet" sentiments are from Practicing Creativity called For the Love of Dots while the "So" and "of you" from this Lawn Fawn set. Sweet directs me to think of pink, as results I chose pink gradient to work with this card and stamp them repetitively and added rhinestones to finish off the touches.

I hope this card speaks to you and gives you some inspiration in card making :) Be sure you stop by other DT's card for more mojo!

So Sweet of you

Paper Crafts magazine Presents: Bonus Sketch Blog Hop

I am so glad and honoured to be part of the fun Paper Crafts blog hop in celebrating this special issue of Cards Ideas for Paper Crafters. Currently, Paper Crafts magazine online editor, P. Kelly Smith are hosting a "Bonus Sketch Blog Hop"over Paper Crafts Connection.

Photo courtesy of Paper Crafts

10 of us were asked to design a card using one of the 12 bonus sketches which can be found here. I choose Lucy Abrams sketch to make the card:

My card base on her sketch:
How fun is this sketch as I ended up came out with this "towel" ideas for couples who are celebrating their anniversary. The sentiment that I've used from Lawn Fawn gave a perfect touch on this card!

For me, to follow the sketch closely was one of my greatest challenge in this call as I knew I just couldn't follow. Although the sketch can be interpret in different ways eg. flip them, rotate them, invert them or use them as seen but still the end results always not pointing towards the sketch or sometimes just couldn't recognise the card was base on the sketch. However, it was fun to create a card base on the sketch which actually push me to step out of my comfort zone.

Please do continuing visit bellow designer's blog hop for more inspiration!
