Not Just Cards Challenge Blog - Design Team

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope that you have had a great weekend and got done everything that you wanted to do. We were so busy on Saturday (yes we did it all) that it was lovely to have a day relaxing at home yesterday. Now it is all back to work but for me it is not long to the end of term and I have a lovely cruise to look forward to, I am so lucky.

Have you guessed my crafty news? I feel very privileged that Lori Thomas has asked me to join her Design Team at the Not Just Cards Challenge Blog after she took it over running it a couple of months ago.


This is my first design piece for them and it  uses  an image from the Etsy Store Alldressedupstamps and is called Magical Day . They are one of our sponsors this month we have some other sponsors and the rest of the Design Team have used some of their images. This image proved very popular and three of us used it all in very different ways.


I printed the image onto 160 gsm card and I coloured it with my Promarkers. I wanted the card to have a pretty soft pastel theme. 


I used my Faux Quilled leave Sue Wilson die to cut the leaves and my Sizzix Tattered Floral die to make the flowers. The centers  were made with a Spellbinders die it comes with a different flower. This where I confess that I bought the die set just for the center die. I also added a CS PVA pearl glue dot to the middles. 


This is what I bought on Saturday at the Newbury Papercraft show. Someone was demonstrating  Brushos and I just couldn't resist. It was a brilliant show costing £3 to get in and we were all given a goody bag of bits that must have been worth more that £3. There is another show planned for January 23rd  next year and there is a Facebook page where you can keep up with updates. 


So my first card for NJC Design Team the theme of the all challenges is always "Anything Goes". There will be prizes of Digi stamps from the sponsors of the different challenges. 

I hope that you have a good week. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
