Jacksonbelle Embellishments Tuesday!

Our DT Challenge today was to use October Afternoon paper and/or stamps on our projects. No problem here, that's for sure! Love these papers and stamps! If you too, would like to play along, you can either upload to SCS or PCP using Keyword JBE036 or send a link to your card to the Jacksonbelle Blog!

I decided to make a card out of a Maya Road Mini Chipboard Tree Album! I love making shaped cards out of mini albums! So fun! I used OA papers, Crunching Leaves, the bark side, for the trunk and Cozy Home for the top part of the tree. They are both from the Weathervane Collection and available at the Jacksonbelle Store. And the stamp set is the OA Detours! Set. I just love that cute little deer and rabbit! I added some Shimmerz in Pixie Dust and Pink Poinsettia to the deer, rabbit and flowers. And the apples are coated with some Diamond Glaze. The stamp set and Shimmerz are also available at the Jacksonbelle store!

I also made this card out of the same papers and stamps. I just added some pink cardstock, mini pearls, my Martha Stewart Branch Punch and some more yummy Shimmerz.

And then I altered this Provo Craft box. Hey, I told you I liked October Afternoon! I couldn't stop!! hehe I love the Spring, so I decided to make this in hopes of it coming soon! I used some more OA paper, Cozy Home and Patio Umbrella(stripes) from the Daydream Collection. I used some 20 gauge wire and hot glue behind the trees for added support. I added little white pom-poms to the bunny's tail and the sentiment is printed out of MS Word. To finish it off, I added some crocheted lace, glitter, ribbon, buttons and a hemp cord bow.

Make sure you visit the other DT girls and see what they made!

Does Jacksonbelle still carry the OA Detours stamp set? You've made me want it - and I can't find it on their site!
