Jay Gee’s Nook Challenge #8

June 12, 2011

Hi all! Just popping in to share what I’ve created for the current Jay Gee’s Nook Challenge #8. I’ve been busy just trying to catch up before classes start up tomorrow, so hang in there with me if I’m a little behind this week. ‘Tis life. Here’s the challenge graphic:

And here’s what I created:

I used this awesome stamp set from Penny Black and the Sweet Threads 6 by 6 collection pad from Basic Grey to bring in the colors from the pretty summery colors.

Supplies: Cardstock – Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream and Spring Moss), Patterned Paper – Basic Grey (Sweet Threads 6 by 6 collection pad), Stamps – Penny Black (Wonderful Day) and Lawn Fawn (Sophie’s Sentiments), Ink – Tsukineko (Memento Tuxedo Black) and Ranger (Tea Dye Distress Ink), Colored Pencils – Prismacolor (48 Count), Ribbon – May Arts (1/4″ Silk Ribbon).

Also, I wanted to share my business cards that came in the other day. I designed them myself and ordered from (they rock for bulk printing).

Here’s what the front looks like:

And the back:

I also designed my mom’s business cards for her etsy store. I think she’s going to like them! I’ll give them to her next time I see her in a few weeks. :) (Don’t forget that you can use the code LOVE10 for 10% off your purchase from her store from now until this Wednesday.)

Hope you enjoyed seeing the new cards! Kudos to for awesome printing!

Oh, and a huge thanks to the sweet Kelly Marie for picking my All About Stamping – Lawn Fawn card for their most recent Fawny Flickr Friday! That totally made my weekend. :)

I’m off to jet off to take care of my to-do list for today before I start my summer classes tomorrow. Wish me luck! Hope your weekend has been absolutely fabulous.
