"Bling It Up" - some JELLYPARK Fun!

Hello, dear friends!

I hope your new year is off to a great start!
Mine is beginning with some happiness!

I am very excited to be one of the Guest Designers over at the Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog.
It was always such a joy being on the Jellypark DT!
They were the greatest group to work with...and what about those adorable images?!?
Unfortunately, the Jellypark Store has been closed down due to the new VAT regulations. 
Hopefully it will only be temporary!

In the meantime, the challenge blog will carry on with the usual fun!

The new challenge is "Bling It Up" and I have two cards to share with you.
I hope to see many of you link up over at the blog!

For my first card I used the image called "Princess for a Day".
I diecut some layers from some fabulous blingy paper, and added lots of stickles and rhinestones.

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, Bazzil Bling Paper;
Image: Jellypark - Princess for a Day;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Marvelous Squares;
Ribbon: Offray Glitter Ribbon;
Stickles: Cotton Candy, Star Dust;
Rhinestones: Unknown.

For my second card, I used "Snowball Girl".
A little layering and some pretty dies and bling, and it was finished. 
I love how the Diamond Stickles makes the snow on the card look just like the snow in my yard sparkly and glittery!! 

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: Jellypark - Snowball Girl;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Dies: Whimsy Snowflake Border, Echo Park Paper Co. - Snowflake Set #1;
Stickles: Diamond;
Rhinestones: Unknown

Now it's time for you to make up a sparkling project, 
and  head over to the Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog to join in the fun! :o)

A very heartfelt THANK YOU to Claire and Mel 
for inviting me to be Guest Designer for this month's challenge! :o)

"Princess for a Day" just couldn't be any sweeter. I love the colours you used, the die cuts are really pretty and your colouring is perfect! "Snowball Girl" is a really beautiful card. I absolutely love your colour choices, the image is adorable and looks like a lot of fun to colour and those snowflakes...are those dies? Just gorgeous Nancy! I don't know how you manage to do so many!

Nancy, your cards are both too cute!! I think Jelly Park images are adorable and I am saddened to hear about the VAT regulations that are causing many great digi stores to close. I hope they find some way to work around the regs and reopen.

Glad to see your crafty year has got off to a fabulous start Nancy ! I always loved your Jellypark projects , it's great to see some more!
Your little princess is beautiful , especially those glittery shoes! And your snow girl is gorgeous with those lovely snowflakes. The snow even looks real [ I know how much you love your snow Nancy !}

Both absolutely fabulouse cards Nancy.... but I bet you can guess which one is my favourite??? Just a tad biased towards the PINK!! And she's soooooo cute too in her Princess dress.. However, I don't want to upset the other little girl on your second card by not commenting on her (she's gorgeous too!).... in case she throws that snowball at me!!

Happy New Year Nancy..

WOW! These cards are fabulous! I am going to admit this, right out for the whole world to see. I am jealous. Yes, envious even. Nay, I covet. Your die collection is making me drool. I love the snowflake die cuts you have on the Snowball Girl card, and the framing dies on the little Princess card, too.
Love you my friend - Leslie

These are so cute Nancy! The images are so sweet and I like them both. I am a little partial to the princess one.. I like how the font on the sentiment is so perfectly matched with the image.
