Just Us Girls #386 - Photo Week

Hey there!  Vicki chose a pretty green teapot for the Just Us Girls Photo Week challenge.
 
I pulled out this sweet die and die cut it from white cardstock then colored the leaves and stems with a green copic marker.  I colored some scrap white paper and die cut the butterfly from it as well.  I made the card a shaker because of the opening.  I added some sequins on the front and stamped the sentiment.  There's some Spectrum Noir shimmer on the butterfly and leaves. 
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our March guest, Nance Salkeld, on the JUGs blog. This is her last week with us and we've enjoyed having her play along with us.
 
I'm also adding this to the Less is More blog.  The challenge is to use a frame.  I think this fits!
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Just Us Girls #385 - Color Week

Hi friends!  I'm the hostess over at Just Us Girls color challenge this week, and I have some fun springy colors for you to work with.
 
I wanted to do a floral card and found this stamp set from Papertrey Ink in my never been used box.  It's a layering set and I love the way it layers up!  I used several inks on this (see below), keeping with the challenge colors.  I matted it with this brushstroke paper and I ran the front of the base with a linen impression plate for some texture.  Love the sentiment too!  I stacked three of the together to give it some dimension.  There is Spectrum Noir shimmer all over the sentiment and the floral spray.  Sequins, of course, are always a nice way to finish off a card!

Time Out #79 - CASE Challenge

Hey friends!  The challenge over at Time Out is a CASE challenge.  We have a lovely card to CASE.
 
This card is by Jenny Mullins.  I love bird houses and these are so fun!
 
This challenge is sponsored by Verve, and Julee graciously gave the Time Out DT stamp sets to work with.  I got this one called Hip Hop Bunnies.  So cute!  I chose two of the bunnies to color up and I placed them on the card similar to where the bird houses are and sponged some ink similar to Jenny's card.  I also used kraft cardstock like she did.  The white background looked plain, so I noticed that carrot stamp and decided to stamp it all over the background.  The bunnies sort of look like peeps to me!
 
The winner of this challenge will get a stamp set of their choice from Verve.
 
You can see more about the challenge and inspiration from the Time Out design team and our guest for this challenge, Izzy, on the Time Out blog.
 
I'm also entering this in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

Just Us Girls #384 - Trend Week

Hi friends!  This week is Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Maria chose using a stencil.  I love stencils!
 
I chose one of the Woodblock Stencils from Papertrey Ink and paired it with Distress Oxide inks.  I can't seem to stop using these!  I started in the middle and worked my way out using a rainbow of inks.  I sprayed it with Shimmer Spritz to give it some of that sparkle I love.  I didn't want to cover up any of the pretty stencil, so I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum and wrapped it around the cardstock.  I added some sequins and popped up this piece on fun foam and mounted it to a piece of violet cardstock.
 
You can see more inspiration from the JUGs design team and our March guest on the JUGs blog.
 
I'm also entering it into the Inspired by All the Little Things challenge.  Loved the rainbow colors!

Time Out #78 Reminder - It's Our 3rd Birthday!


I'm back again to remind everyone that Time Out is in its second week of celebrating our third birthday!  We are sponsored by these fine companies, so please stop by the Time Out blog to see what the prizes are!
 
The challenge is to make a card based on the theme Love and/or Friendship.  There's a twist to add spotlight stamping.  I just got this stamp and I love it!  It's a bit challenging to color, but I used the packaging to see where the flowers and leaves begin/end.  I used Bristol smooth white cardstock because I wanted to use Zig markers.  I stamped the image in Versamark ink and embossed it with white powder.  The coloring is very simple with the embossing.  I stamped the sentiment below and added sequins.  You can't tell in the photo, but I put some Spectrum Noir sparkle on the letters and leaves.  The main panel is popped up with fun foam.
 
We have four of our sponsors and some of their DT playing along with us as well as our guest for this challenge, Ardyth.  You can see all the details on the Time Out blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
