Welcome to Racing Towards Creativity Royal Blog Tour

Welcome to my part of the "Pretty In Pink" Princess Tour. I am filling in for someone who had to drop the tour at the last minute. My name is Jennifer Eby. My samples will be on the simple side since I did not have weeks to prepare like the rest did. In fact, I did all my samples in one weekend. I am spotlighting the stamp set called "Leaf Lines." This set has so much potential. There are 5 types if leaves and a saying and I have used each and everyone in my samples you will see below. If you want to know how and what supplies I used, please email me and I will provide you with the directions. I am also offering Blog Candy. What I am giving away and what you must to do to be in the drawing is at the end of my samples.

    ************************
      ************************
    This is my favorite card. As you have probably discovered by now, making flowers from punches or stamps is all the rage right now. I used the ginko leaf to make my flower. The center of the flower uses the four leaf clover with a pink rhinestone brad. The leaves are from the big bird punch. The flower was raised up with a glue dot.
      ************************

    This is my 3D item and it contains tea bags. The front of the container says TEA and it is hard to see in the picture. There are also clear buttons attached to the front. I am not sure what kind of leaves these are but they reminded me of tea leaves, so I used them on this container. The kind of tea that is in this container also includes flowers so I made pansies using our butterfly punch. This is on the back of the container.
      ************************
    Blog Candy
    I am giving away a Stampin' Up Crop -a-Dile and a stamp set called "Sweet Stems" and a hostess set from the mini called "Picture This." They are brand new in the packaging and have never been used. Blog Candy is only offered to non-Stampin' Up! demonstrators for the Royal Blog Tour.

    In order to qualify for the Blog Candy I am offering, you must leave a comment about which item you liked the best and why along with your email address and if you become a follower on my blog, you will have two chances to win. Remember the Blog Candy is only for NON STAMPIN' UP DEMONSTRATORS. I will mail to anyone who qualifies and is picked. I will use a random generator to pick the lucky person. You will be notified by email shortly after the tour ends.

    Have fun on the tour. Please click your mouse on the shoes to go to the next blog and pay attention to the clues so you can enter to win the grand prizes.

Wow - you've done well considering you had such a short time. Beautiful projects & very creative.

Teri said...

Great projects! Love them all!

Kay M said...

Gee, it's hard to pick just one but I guess I would go with the first card and the holly with the "ornament" vase. I can see where I should have gotten that punch.

elaine said...

Jennifer, I love ALL your projects! I like the distressing you did on the first couple of cards. The cannister is so pretty. Thanks for all your hard work on the blog tour!

OMGoodness. I am loving all the texture you use in each of your projects. I love the cut out look so much!
The Crop-a-Dile would be my pick. Even tough the stamps are pretty awesome too but I see Punching Eyelets into chipboard for books in my future!

Joanne Gilch said...

I like your Christmas card the best! You can tell without the side view that your leaves are dimensional by the way you adhered them and the angle. All your projects are awesome considering you had no pre-planning!

I love all of your projects! Do I really have to pick just one? If I have to chose I guess I would pick the 3rd card with the flower out of the ginkgo leaves. My neighbor when I was growing up had a ginkgo tree and I always think of her when I see ginkgos. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win your awesome candy. Also I am signing up to follow your blog. Inky hugs,
