Stamp Simply #53 – Cute-n-Classy with JenniB

Published by at 11 45 pm under Challenges,Inkadinkado

Hi everyone!!! Todaystarts a new year for the Stamp Simply Challenges! Thank you all so much for playing each week I SO enjoy Fridays and THIS is the reason, getting to play with all of YOU!!! Much Appreciated!!! I am prewriting this as I won’t have computer access Thursday evening or Friday during the day, so the announcement for the Stamp Simply Guest Designer for the month of November will not be made until Saturday morning. I’m so sorry, but it just could not be avoided!!! Now on to this weeks challenge —

Keyword ssnotime53 -There is no time limit. You can play this challenge and upload yourproject at Splitcoastand/or your Blog, anytime at all! You (and that means anyone and everyone, blogger or not!)can play as many times as you like!!! The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!! Please link back here.

Todays challenge is to get Cute-n-Classy with JenniB — Jennifer Buck that is, known as JenniB04 over at SCS where, I must add, she was crowned one of the newest Dirty Girls on Monday — way to go Jennifer!!! Check out her Cute-n-Classy photo here. Now back to the challenge —

What I see when I view Jennifer’s work are projects that are very clean and fresh, often withcutsie type images, but alwaysdone with total class!!! I like that!!!Jennifer’s work is very delightful and refreshing and her fun-loving spiritshines through many of her projects. Jennifer also does a fair amount of 3-D or alteredprojects, so if you’re inclined to do a 3-D project for today, that works!!! So the basic list for today’s challenge is to make aproject with a Clean Design, Fresh Colors, Cutsie Images, and a Classy Overall Appearance.For inspiration, Jennifer is providingus with some samples of her work, as well asa new creation for today. You can check them all out atThe Buck Stamps Here. Andonce you get there, take the time to cruise her blog for even more fabulous inspiration!!! You’ll be pleased you did!!!

The above are suggestions, not all requirements the only requirement is that you try to create a project with a clean, fresh and classy feel to it, using Jennifer’s work as your inspiration. HOW you achieve it, is up to you! We cant wait to see what you do!!!

If you are viewing this late Thursday night or early Friday morning, please bear with us as everyone is uploading their projects — thank you!!!

Heres my card for todays challenge:


Every day is a gift — Oh how true! This beautiful bird image (cute and classy all rolled up into one!) is in a set by Inkadinkado called Winter Birds — so many gorgeous, flourishy birds — I just love it!!! I merely stamped my image in black onto white paper, and then it was merely a matter of layering paper — now how EASY can that be!!! I love the clean, crisp feel of the celery, black and white together. And I got to use more of my new May Arts ribbon, which I LOVE. This striped ribbon is 1.5″ wide and is a grosgrain, but its nice and soft for tying — just perfect!!! After my card was all put together, I added a rhinestone eye and traced over the flourishes with a glue pen and applied Dazzling Diamonds, for a VERY dazzling card IRL!!!

  • Stamps: Winter Birds by Inkadinkado, sentiment by Papertrey Ink

  • Paper: PTI White, SU Black and Certainly Celery

  • Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black

  • Accessories: May Arts Ribbon, Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, SU Large Oval Punch, SU Slot Punch, Mounting Tape, Rhinestone

Hope you have some time this week to play with us and get Cute-n-Classy with JenniB!!! It’s a fun one!!! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!!!
