Combining CPS and Jillibean Soup

Totally exciting, the sponsor this week at Card Positioning Systems blog is Jillibean Soup. If you haven't heard of this company before, then you need to get acquainted. They have really fun papers, neat journaling spots and more recently, some clear stamps.
I created a few cards with the products that I received but this first one that I am sharing is the one that goes with the CPS sketch. Even that great kraft colored patterned paper that I used for my card base is Jillibean Soup. The journaling sprouts that I used on my cards are "calendar" themed spots. These come in a few different sizes and include calendar pages as well as spots that are just the names of the months.
I also received this adorable clear stamp set to create with. I embossed the tree and the house with clear embossing powder after stamping them and I added some shading to the house with my Copic markers.
Here is another card I created since I have so many great pieces to play with. One thing to note is that I used a cardstock from The Chocolate Box collection by Core'dinations. Let me tell you, this piece with the green core was just made to go with this collection of Jillibean Soup.
You can see that the focus on my card is another one of the calendar journaling sprouts. I love because this piece can create the theme of your card depending on the month it represents.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
