The reason I started my blog was so that I could participate in stamping challenges. This week there are 2 challengesI want to try, and I have 2 Birthdays to make cards for.

The first card is for my rock 'n' roll niece and I made her card using the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge(CSCC) 48. The movie we're to base our card on is "School of Rock" and we need to use some cork.
I put my cork into my Big Shot using Daisies #2 die. The otherStampin Up products I used are Whisper White cardstock, Night & Day Designer Series paper, and Pixie Pink and Certainly Celery markersto add a little color to the DSP. The cute stickers are from K & Company.

The second card, for a teenage nephew, is based on Pals Paper Arts #7. It's a sketch challenge. I started with Very Vanilla card stock and added Autumn Meadows DSP folded over to show both sides. I stamped the scalloped circle from the Circle Circus stamp set 3 times; once each in More Mustard, Really Rust, and Chocolate Chip inks. I punched them apart using 3/4", 1 1/4" and scalloped circle punches, and then reassembled them so they each had a piece of each color. I finished with "Happy Birthday" from Party Hearty stamp set in Choc. Chip ink. All supplies for this card are Stampin' Up.


  1. I love your cork flower! Isn't it a great material to work with? Just a different texture :) Thanks for playing with us this week :)

  2. I love the colors that you used on your PPA card! Your interpretation of the sketch is just spot-on! Jackie, this is a fantastic card! Thanks for playing at PPA! (And the CSCC card is just adorable! Running the cork through the Big Shot was ingenious!)

  3. I love both of your cards, Jackie! Nice interpretation of the PPA sketch, too. The colors you used and the layered Circle Circus image in different colors is so neat! Thanks for playing along at PPA!
