Cards a la Jacky (click to enlarge)

Jacky, over at the ScrappyJacky blog is quite the card maker!  During our Creative Circle Blog Party, she posted this wonderful card.  Using it as inspiration, I made a bunch of cards over the weekend. I started with this card, featuring a JudiKins image, colored with twinkling H2O's, and patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket, Scenic Route, and Basic Grey.  I embellished with ribbon, flowers and buttons. Sentiment from Club Scrap.

After creating three of those, I still had a lot of paper left over, so I went about designing other cards with a similar feel.  The card on the left uses a Stamp Francisco image and the card on the right uses an image from Alpha Stamps.  Jacky's style is a little sweeter than mine, and she managed to get more layers and details on her cards than I did on mine.  But, I love these cards and really appreciate her inspiration!  It's so much fun to work in a different style while still incorporating your own.  Thanks Jacky!

P.S. The wonderful Lizzie sent me another blog award!  I love getting these, and I will be responding it to it tomorrow.  Thanks Lizzie!!!

Realy loved to see your cards, they are very pretty! Nice images also but I'm very sorry that I have to tell you that to make a change to be a winner, you have to use one of the The Greeting Farm images and you have to mention our challenge in your post. But, I didn't mind to watch your great artwork!

Love from AFA!

These are brilliant,Rinda....I love the images that you've used...your Alpha Stamps image has a bit of a Tim Holtz look to it.....and the layering looks fab....also love the way you've coloured them.So glad you enjoyed making them.....I'll look out for more from you!!!!
One great thing with cardmaking is that you can use lots of 'scraps'....I keep all my bits left over from scrapbook pages to use on cards.

Goede Morgen Renata! (Did you guys know I took a full year of Dutch in college? It had to do with a boy . . .)
Thank you for your compliments! I wanted to say that I was not intending to enter a contest. I hope I did not confuse you.
All the best,

Thanks Mel. It is fun to scraplift cards. They always end up with my style b/c my stamp and paper collection reflects my interests!

I think what I like the most about blogging and online classes is the inspiration from so many sources - I love how we can find connection from all over the world with such relative ease ... thanks Rinda and Jacky.
