All That Glitters Challenge

Hello Ladies & Gents!

It's that time again when we introduce a new challenge over on the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog.  This month sees our very talented teamie Candice setting the theme for us this time - All That Glitters.

We've all had a great time getting messy and spreading glitter around for this challenge.

On my easel card, I used the text from Sarah's Mini Textures Stamps and embossed with Gold Twinkle embossing powder to decorate the hearts and borders.  I used a combination of gold pearlised paper and mirror card and all finished off with gold ribbon.

If you would like to join in and spread some glitter, the please make your entries HERE!  There are some fantabulous prizes on offer to get glittering!!!!!!  You have until 30th June to enter and winners will be announced on 3rd July.

Also, over on Sarah's Blog, there is news of the new monthly kit offer.

It's Fabulous Friday Folks!!!

Hi All,

Hope you are all well and enjoying the Spring weather?!

I thought I'd get a quick Blog post in before work and the weekend takes over!!  Last time I shared with you Volume 3 of Sarah Hurley's LookBook, which you can find here.  One of my projects for the LookBook was a set of two cards using Sarah's fantastic new Gatsby Range. 

I used one of the gorgeous embellishments as the shape of the card, and using Serif, layered some other images over the top.  I cut out the two fabulous ladies and sentiments and decoupaged them on.

The Gatsby Range is bang on trend at the moment, what with the new film and eveything.  For me though, the 20's and Art Deco will always be timeless.

Shades of Blue Challenge & LookBook 3

Hello fellow Bloggers!!!!

It's been a difficult couple of months here at JessiCards and I havent been able to Blog, but I'm back now and have lots of exciting things to share with you!!

*Sings*  Oh I'm......A Deeper Shade Of Blue.......... Sorry peeps, Steps are a guilty pleasure of mine and the title of this Sarah Hurley challenge took me right back!!!!!

The lovely Clare has chosen this months' theme and all things blue are the way to go!!


I had great fun experimenting with Sarah's Mini Texture Stamps and Love and Marriage Stamp Set. I used the text stamp to make my background and inked the edges to give it shade.  I cut out 5 octagon shapes and used the crackle stamp and clear glaze.  I made a topper using the text stamp again and the top hat from the Love and Marriage Stamp Set.

There are lots more exciting releases from Sarah in the coming weeks so keep your eyes peeled for those.

I'm pleased to say that issue 3 of Sarah's online magazine LookBook is now available.  It's a collection of creations by all the Design Team, using Sarah's fantastic products.

Thanks for stopping by.
