Here Come the Girls

Hi there everyone,

I'm back today with details of the next theme over at my own challenge blog at Fantasy Stampers. We had a terrific response to our Autumn Colours last time - so if you came and played along, thank you so much.

For the next two weeks we have a real easy theme - so I hope we will see you all again with your makes for our challenge


We would love to see anything girlie - it can be any kind of project, it doesn't have to be a card. Although I did stick with the traditional for my DT inspiration this time - here's what I made ...

This has to be one of my favourite kind of cards to make - all pink and girly, and I made it using some of my favourite products with the Lily of the Valley monthly challenge in mind. Their theme is 'Pretty Papers' and they have some gorgeous ones too - I used three different patterns from the 'Always and Forever' pad (all pink, and all nice and girly too).

I made an 8x8" card all layered up with lots of different shapes, backed with a lovely co-orinating burgundy cardstock.  Each layer is inked around the edges using Victorian Velvet distress ink.

The main image is also LOTV - the 'Birthday Fairy' and she stamped twice, coloured with my Promarkers and layered to give a decoupage effect (although this doesn't show well in my photo).  

I also used the LOTV postcard as part of my background layers and a little sentiment is stamped from their 'Everyday Grungy Sentiments'.

Extra embellies include a little die-cut bunting using scraps of the card and paper, a chipboard flower which I embossed with pink frantage powder, a piece of polkadot ribbon and a few aurora adhesive crystals.

Very much my usual design - now step away from the card Jan! Lol.

Right I'm off to go enter the challenge now. I hope you can come and play along with your own 'girly' makes - see you there. 

Hugz, Jan xx


  1. This is soooo sweet Jan. I do adore those papers (in fact, making a mini album with them as we speak!) and I love the way you displayed them all! x

  2. A stunning card Jan. Gorgeous colours, gorgeous papers, gorgeous image - well actually just all round gorgeous :)

  3. LOTV heaven Jan! Very pink and girly and I love the scalloped border. :)

  4. What a sweet card, Jan! I love the red and pink together!

    Thanks for joining our Lili of the Valley 'Pretty Papers' challenge!
