JBelle's Tuesday challenge

It's Tuesday and time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishments challenge! Today's challenge is to use PRIMA products! Woohoo! Who doesn't love some Primas? I am loaded to the gills with these lovely flowers. But did you know that Prima also makes stamps and paper? I did not until I joined this DT. As always, everyone is invited to play along, and you don't need to have JBelle supplies to play. But if you don't have any, you can check out the store and see what strikes your fancy there are lots of new items now in stock.

My card uses a Giraffe stamp from Prima and 2 little prima flowers from the Got Flowers pink bottle. The giraffe is clear embossed with ColorBox rose coral Chalk ink and colored with a copic marker.

CHECK OUT THIS BOW! Woweeeee! I PM'd my fellow Dirty Girl and stamper extraordinairre, Kitty (KittyKraft) about the lovely bows I see on her cards. She emailed me back with a link to HER TUTORIAL! Oh man, is she talented. Check out her tutorial (the second one down), it shows you how to make her lovely multi looped bows!! The ribbon is a fun pink and orange strip from May Arts. I have tried to make Kitty's bow for days now, and find (at least for me) that the kind of ribbon you use really makes a difference. Softer, thicker kinds like this or SU taffeta works the best.

Don't forget to check out the other DTs prima creations!!

Remember back in this post, when I showed you my BARE stamping area? Well, today I get my 12' x 3' long table and am gonna REDO everything! My whole stamping area! Woohoo! Lots of organizing and re-organizing. I will show pics when I am done.
