Just Us Girls #323 - Trend Week

Hi friends!  I'm hosting the Trend challenge over at Just Us Girls this week, and I chose SEQUINS as the trend. 
So how many of you have tried something Jennifer McGuire did and thought "how does she make it look so easy?"  Hahaha!  I recently bought a fuse tool.  I got it with a 50% off coupon at AC Moore and it was cheap!  So I checked out her videos on using the fuse tool and cased a card she did.  But it didn't go as smoothly as hers!  I won't go into detail, but let's just say this card took longer than it took Jennifer to do!  She's just so amazing!  This is the video I watched to create my card.
Anyway, I used the fuse tool and created a round pocket then filled it with sequins and sealed it up.  I attached it to the card base.  The I cut the round opening in the blue panel and used a stencil and texture paste to add the "snow flakes".  Santa and Rudolph were die cut and colored with copics and adhered.  That panel was added to the base with dimensional tape.

Just Us Girls #322 - Word Week

Hi friends!  It's getting closer and closer to that date and Ina chose a word for our Just Us Girls Word Week that will help us get those cards done...Merry!
 I saw this post on the Craftsy blog for a One Sheet Wonder technique, so I thought I'd try it.  This is one of those cards.  (I'll post the others later).  Once you cut the 12" x 12" paper, you should be able to make 14 cards!  I had this paper from Michael's I think.  I just love the plaid!  The "merry" was die cut four times and stacked.  I stamped the "Christmas" using my Misti then adhered the die cut above it on the white panel.  I added sequins for some sparkle.
