JB12-05 + EAD = ♥STUCK ON YOU♥

like my amazing ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ partner stephanie did last november, i was lucky enough to win a spot as guest designer for EAD DESIGNS all this month. since both stef and i are *HUGE* fans, and emily was gracious enough to sponsor one of our prompts last year, we asked if they'd like to team up again. not only did emily say YES, she sent along the uber-talented EAD design team to help out! we all made cards that feature stickers or rub-ons, and we hope you'll come along and join us for a shot at a fabulous prize!!!

here's my card:

 (EAD DESIGNS: celebrate the season stickerz; vintage: page from "ideals" christmas magazine; xl diecut journaling card: making memories; patterned paper: basic grey, my mind's eye; brads: doodlebug; inks: ranger; pearls: recollections; adhesives: tombow monorunner,  3m foam tape)

i chose this set of celebrate the season stickerz... 

...specifically because my friend, fellow BELLE, and EAD design team member extraordinaire miss rose used them to make this gorgeous card a couple of weeks ago, and i was *smitten* by it! my intention was to CASE it, but as often happens with me, i became slightly distracted... (if you've ever seen a cat react to a laser pointer, you have a pretty good mental picture of my "process" lol!) ...and in the end it doesn't look alllllllll that much like rose's, but i'm pretty pleased with it anyway.

i stuck my clear ornament stickerz to some vintage xmas themed text paper, cut them out, and adorned them with snowflake brads that coincidentally were exactly the right size, shape and color (wahey!!!) then mounted them on a bit of foam tape and used lines of sticky-back pearls as "hangers". i attached everything to that fabulous oversized journaling card, and then just had to create a fairly large (7" square) card to hold it all. i love the way the colors on the stickerz coordinate perfectly with so many prominent holiday paper lines, including my favorite "oldie", basic grey's "fruitcake"!

of course, you don't have to use EAD stuffs to play along with us at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ (but i bet you have some, don't you?!) you can use any stickers or rub-ons, so c'mon over between now and wednesday, march 7th, see the gorgeous EAD DT creations, and start planning the cards *YOU* will make for your shot at the prize! ♥♥♥
