Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!



Hello Friends,

Over at Just Us Girls this week it’s Cheryl’s turn and it’s week 2

 (Trend Week) and she has asked us to incorporate

woodgrain in our card and or project.


Here is an additional view!

Here are a few card details:

I heat embossed my SU flowers with white embossing powder.

The buttons and flower centers are a die cut from MFT that I adore and

don’t use enough, which will be changing for sure!

My Woodgrain panel is covered up quite a bit

but was stamped with SU- Wisteria Wonder.  I did the

masking technique once again and that is how I got the perfect white border around it.

The leaves were left over from a previous JUGS challenge

of the kissing technique.  I fussy cut them out.

Lots of pop dots and a tag made with my SU tag punch and it’s

embossed as well with a scallop…but you can barely see it.

The rest of the  JUGS team along with our new, July Guest Designer-Rebekka Reed

have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog

and check out what they’ve created.  Simply create a card using the sketch and link

it up to the JUGS blog for a chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week. 

Remember, if you are chosen as Chic of the Week you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.

One more thing!


I am also entering my card over at Colour Me.

However, now that I have read the fine print of their challenge

I may not qualify because I used two shades of Purple on my card

and I don’t believe that is allowed.   It’s all good anyways!

I enjoyed looking at all of the DT’s creations and it

helped inspire me to create mine!  So all in all it’s a Win!

Have a fantastic day and hope to see you over at JUGS!

  4. Hi Nancy 🙂 What a wonderful card, I especially loved the flowers which you heat embossed on the vellum. Such a neat little detail. And as for the used colors: as long as the Colour Me…! challenge colors are predominant in your card, you are fine even if you use another color as well 🙂
