Today's Challenge for the Jacksonbelle DT was to use our stash and pretty much make whatever we like! So a friend of mine who recently had a baby girl, decorated the nursery with all cute little zoo animals. So I decided today was the perfect day to make a little box for her room and a matching card using all the awesome papers from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. So here we go!!
I adhered some October Afternoon paper (Crunching Leaves from the Weathervane Collection) to the bottom portion of the box and some OA (Night Light, Henry) paper to the top. I added some satin lavender polka dotted ribbon around the edge of the top. I then adhered some Memory Box paper and some more OA paper to a wooden giraffe and elephant that I had forever. I added some Pixie Dust and Angel Wings Shimmerz to them as well as some Fancy Pants Ball Trim(which I cut off of the ribbon ~OUCH!) I then stamped the cute little Prima giraffe onto some more OA Paper and the Palm trees, vines and Monkey are by Stampendous! The tree trunk was made by cutting some more of the OA Crunching Leaves paper. The coconuts on the large tree are actually faux pearls that I inked brown. And the Alpha Letters are stamps by Wordsworth. I adhered everything with a hot glue gun. And of course, I applied more Pixie Dust, Wintergreen and Gold Glimmer Shimmerz over everything else!! ;) The box is made more for display but can be opened and little trinkets can be stored inside.
I then decided to make a quick card to match. I used some more OA and Memory Box paper, the cute little Prima Giraffe stamp, vines from the Stampendous set, "welcome to the world" is from a baby stamp set but not sure who makes it. I also used the Fancy pants Ball Trim(fully intact this time;), some more Pixie Dust Shimmerz and some mini pearls by Kaiser Craft.
All the OA papers, Memory Box papers, Shimmerz, Prima Giraffe Stamp and the Fancy Pants Ball Trim can all be purchased at the Jacksonbelle Store.
And lastly, I just found out yesterday that 2 more cards were accepted for publication to the November issue of CardMaker magazine. I was bummed that my card wasn't in the March issue as I thought it would be, but I was assured by the awesome Tanya Fox, the editor, that it would be in a future publication! So I was happy about that! Ok, enough tooting!! Please make sure you stop by and visit the other Jacksonbelle DT Girls and see what they created!
Have a wonderful day!!
