Wildcard Week at JUGS!

JUGS

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 10.09.42 PM

Hi Friends,

It’s Wild Card week at Just Us Girls and Marisa is hosting this time.

 She has challenged us to make any size or shaped card other then the traditional

A2 size that we all tend to gravitate to.  On a very sad note it is Marisa’s last time

hosting with us at JUGS and to say I am going to miss her is a HUGE understatement!!

She is such a sweetheart and so very talented too!  She promises that she won’t

be a stranger and  will play along with us from time to time

from the other side of the fence!  We would love that!

THANK YOU Marisa for being such a wonderful and inspirational

creator and friend!  Good luck with life as it sounds like your going to

be extra busy!  It has been a pleasure working alongside you!

Okay here are some details on my card!

I came up with this card rather quickly the other night

and it came together just as I had hoped.

The sentiment is from Verve – With Love Set.  I am sure you recognize the

BEAUTIFUL flower stamp which is the Stippled Blossom from Stampin Up.  I can’t wait

to stamp with it again!  It may just be the most beautiful flower stamp I own.

The possibilities are endless with this set!

The banners were all made with nestabilities.

That about does it!

Hope to see you over at JUGS and while your there

leave some love for Marisa and Kristie our guest Designer for the month!

She did a fabulous job!!

Photo Week!

JUGS

 

Hello Friends,

Today over at Just Us Girls Lisa has picked out this great photo for us

for our Photo Week Challenge # 255.

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 2.51.55 PM

I loved it right when I saw it because it has endless possibilities! 

That’s what so cool about a photo challenge, everyone interprets it differently.

When you head on over to Just Us Girls and see what the design team did, 

you will realize how vastly different some of our creations are!  

I also got myself a NEW Camera last weekend so bare with me 

as I figure out how to use it!  I love it, but at the moment it’s

intimidating me.  I haven’t figured out what settings and such

are for inside photos in my light box,

so for now I am back to the great outdoors!

This photo came out pretty well and the cool part

is I didn’t have to adjust the photo afterwards one bit! 🙂

My card is very simple as this was the first full week back at school

and I have been so beat in the evenings and not able to move

from the couch!  I sure hope this is just a temporary thing!

Alright, I think I have rambled long enough.  

I will see you over at JUGS,

and remember if you win Chic of the week you will be in

the running as a possible Guest Designer for the month of October.

Take care and enjoy creating!

Praying…

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!
IMG_0002

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!

 Our “Toppings” option this time is

 “Coloring”

markers, chalk, colored pencils, paint, and more!

 The choice is yours!

I thought it was way past time for me to get out my colored chalk!

IMG_0001

The flowers are Stampin Up- Flower Shop and the sentiment is from Verve- Take Note.

I used a q-tip to do my coloring.  The dark paper looks blue, but is actually purple.

The scrap DP I have had for about 10 years, I throw no scraps away..LOL

so I am not sure who’s it is….sorry! :/

I put some stickles on the centers of the flowers, but should have left

well enough alone!

Who doesn’t love Sunflowers?

Happy Monday….LOL!

Today I am thrilled to share with you a card I was dabbling with on and off

all weekend.  Yes, it took me most of the weekend to finally get it to come

together the way I had envisioned.  LOL

The creative process began when I saw this week’s Dynamic Duos colors along with

a gorgeous Inspiration Photo….over at Curtain Call (I love sunflowers )…and

this week’s Muse card over at Case Study.

collage

Let me show you the card and then…. “I have some explaining to do!”

( read that in a Ricky Ricardo voice from Lucy) LOL

SF2

Sunflowers

SF3

When it comes to the Dynamic Duos…I sure hope it’s okay that I added brown in my card…

I noticed some of the Design Team had done the same. (Fingers crossed)

For Curtain Call….I am right on target my card screams inspiration from the photo!

The only thing missing is some burlap!  Need some of that!

Last, but not least….for the Case Study Muse card….I used the obvious flower as my inspiration and the fence mimics the

vertical stripes that are in the sample…I realize mine aren’t bright and bold…but I hope it will suffice! 

Also, the vellum piece I replaced it with the 2 cross pieces on my fence.

Now, here are a few details of how I made my card!

The background woodgrain fence is a stamp from Stampabilites.

The sunflower is a stamp I have had for years that I got at a Garage sale….LOVE it!

I used my Spectrum Noir pens to color my flowers and then fussy cut them…don’t look to close!

Finally, that cool grass…is a die cut I got from Impression Obsession….Isn’t it the coolest!

Added the hemp and some distressing and Wahla!

Thanks for sticking with me, this was a long post, I so appreciate it!!!

Have a fantastic day!

 Today over at CAS on Sunday we have a Floral Fantasy going on.

Not sure my card qualifies as a fantasy…lol…. being that I chose all white, but the challenge

That’s simple enough!

These Stampin up candy dots are amazing, infact

I just got these exact ones today!

Sure hope you come on over and join the girls and I at CASOS,

but Just remember to keep it Clean and Simple!

Details:

My flower was created with my Cricut.

The stem is a die cut from My Favorite Things and

Hosting @ Just Us Girls and More…

JUGS+186

I am thrilled to be your HOSTESS this week for my first hosting job as part

of the Design team at Just Us Girls.

 When I realized my first challenge was going to be a photo challenge,

I immediately thought of pink and black (my favs) and hopped on over to google images.

After just a couple of seconds, I found these two photos that I knew would be perfect!

 I picked two images so that you might have a few choices.

 You may either get inspirations from the color pallet and take that route,

reproduce some flowers like I have done,

or you may be intrigued by the damask pattern on the purse.

 You decide!

IMG_0014

Now the details:  I used my spectrum Noir pens and colored the BACK of my flowers

after I heat embossed them on Vellum with white embossing powder.

LOVE this look!

I first saw this technique over at Driven to Ink blog….a few years ago.

Over at the Pink Elephant that is the challenge this week… to “Lift” or “Case” a card or technique.

TPE-ChallengeBanner2

So I chose the Technique of Embossing and Coloring on Vellum!

So, I will also be linking this card to their challenge as well as

over at Addicted to CAS.

My second entry!

ATCAS - code word flower

They asked us to use flowers.

The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

I’m THRILLED to have hosted the fun with Just Us Girls, this week…

PLEASE  WON’T  YOU JOIN THE GIRLS AND I !!

Can’t wait to see what you link up!

Nancy

Happy Weekend,

Today’s card was inspired by the color combo over at the Dynamic Duos. Pink and more Pink!  After I found the color scheme I went looking for a sketch.  I didn’t have to go far!  I went with old reliable and one of my favorite blogs….Freshly Made Sketches.  They never disappoint me!

Hang in there….

Everytime I here that phrase Hang In There…I think of the poster I had in my room when I was little girl with the kitty hanging from the tree holding on for dear life! LOL I bet some of you know exactly what I am referring to!

 Anyways, this card is for the color challenge over at The Dynamic Duos (where else) and it’s also for the challenge over at The Pink Elephant to use punches or Dies on your card or project.  

On this particular card I used 3 different types of Dies from My Favorite Things.  Two different scalloped edges and this really cool Leafy Flourish.  These are some of the best Die’s I have ever purchased!  You need them trust me!

The paper used is from Stampin Up.

 The flower stamp is also Stampin up and from a set called Doodle This.

 I stamped three images, cut them out and flipped them over as to not to see the details of the stamp and more of a die cut effect.

 The sentiment is from Verve.

Added a prima flower, button and some gems!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping,
