Jazzy Inspiration & Etsy DT.....

Good Saturday Morning Everyone!
It's design team day and I truly had fun making these cards! The card below is for Jazzy Inspirations and we had to make our cards based off the colors: Taken with Teal, Green Galore, Basic Black & Whisper White. I immediately knew I wanted to ink up this set and just went with the picture I had in my head......I must say that I do like the final result---not overdone but still classy!

supplies:Fifth Avenue Floral ss; Taken with Teal, Green Galore, Whisper White & Basic Black cs; Taken with Teal, Green Galore & Basic Black ink; Eyelet Border Punch; Wide Oval Punch; Black Grosgrain Ribbon; Bold Brights Brads; 2 Way Glue Pen & Dazzling Dimonds Glitter

My next card is for the Etsy Challenge. This week's shop is Expressingyou and it's full of things to get your creative juices flowing . I chose the black & white ensemble from this room and just went with the other words; I didn't have a clue how this card was going to come out but was/am pretty happy with the final result LOL!! I know I'm not the only one that does that!!!

supplies: Best Yet & Eastern Blooms ss; Basic Black & Whisper White cs; Basic Black & Whisper White ink; Vintage Brads; Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon; Eyelet Border & Curly Label Punches; Big Shot & Embosslits Flower Burst Die

I need to tend to my son--he has dry socket for those of you that understand the dental lingo & he's in so much pain right now. I'll be so happy when he completely heals & this is all behind us!!
I'm also looking forward to seeing my good friend Krista....girl time! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!


  1. OMG!!!! I know dry socket, heard the horror stories but fortunately never got it and I had all 4 wisdom teeth done at once! Poor baby! Give him big gentle hugs!! Your card is AWESOME by the way! OMG! I SOOO love it! TFS ;)!

  2. WOW Jackie! You've been busy!! These are both gorgeous. I love the flower one because I love the colors & that set and I like the B&W one because I like B&W! You just put it all together so well!

    Hope DS gets this taken care of and is back to his old self soon. Enjoy your "friend" time, too!

  3. Jackie I like the teal and green together... looks great!

    Hope your DS' dental issues heal quickly.. that kind of pain is NO fun.. and he has already been through enough.

  7. I hope your son feels better soon-ouch!

    Your cards are so very pretty!

  8. Oh Jackie,

    I got dry socketts they are awful!!! I am so sorry he has to deal with that!!! The Dentist put sea weed in my mouth which tasted and smelled horrible but did help with the pain and healed the dry sockets!!!

    I love both your cards you did a wonderful job this time around!!!

    Love it!!! Love that texture you added with the embossing!!!


  9. WOW....both cards are stellar!!!!

    Hope the dry socket is something that can be fixed or at least the pain taken care of quickly. Hugs for both of you!!!

  10. Lovely cards - especially the black and white one - really striking.

    So sorry your son is in pain, hope he feels better very soon.

  11. Beautiful, the more I see this stamp set I like it!

  12. I'm really diggin' both color combos! FAB cards!

  13. Oh WOW! both cards are pretty, but I am lovin' the first card! It's stunning.

    Sorry your son isn't feeling well. Hope he is better quickly!

  14. Oh Jackie, you may have pushed me over the edge! I've been eyeing and resisting the The fifth avenue set and matching DP since the new catalog came out. I keep telling myself I have enough flowers, but this beauty of a card just makes me want to run out and order it! It's gorgeous -- well done!

  15. I really like the overall design and colors of the first card. The more I see this set used, the more I think I need it!

    Black and white alone can be challenging but your really pulled it off.

  16. great always...I've been putting off going to the dentists for AGES but I think I HAVE to go :0(

  17. Jackie great minds must think a like! We justed the same stamp set for the Jazzy challenge.

    Great job on your design.


  18. Your cards are both gorgeous, Jackie!!! I just ordered the Fifth Ave. Floral set and can't wait to ink it up!!! I am so sorry about your son's complications with his oral surgery....Hope the pain eases up and he heals completely!!!
