JUGS time…


Hi Friends,

Here is this week’s challenge over at Just Us Girls hosted by my good friend

and teammate Sharyn!

Here is what I did with the challenge!


I thought it was time to use one of my favorite stamp sets again by Verve,

it’s called Poppy Birthday.  I paired it up with this great jar stamp that I picked up at a local craft store!

The flowers were stamped many times using three different papers, fussy cut,

pieced back together, and then raised with some Stampin Up pop dots.

I originally stamped my jar directly on the red paper using black ink, but when it came time

to adding the flower stems, it just didn’t look quite right.  So, I broke out my vellum

again and made my jar see through like I have done in the past.  Love that look!

The jar is also heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The arrow stamp is something I picked up at Michaels.

I ran my leaves through my Cuttelbug using the Lattice folder. 

That pretty much sums up most of my design!

 Remember that our Chics of the Week have the chance to be a Guest Designer,

so the more you play the more chances you have to be a JUGs Guest Designer!

Here are the links to help get you started!

Have a wonderful day and find time to be creative….it’s good for the soul,
