Just Us Girls #324 - Word Week

Hi everyone!  I hope your holidays were pleasant!  It was nice to have a blogging break, but it's great to be back!
 
This week is Word Week over at Just Us Girls, and the word is "Thank You".  Perfect for getting out those thank you cards for all the gifts received.
 
I received a great stamp and die set from my friend and fellow JUGs designer, Cheryl, so I decided to make a card with it.  The set is called Roses for You from Simon Says Stamp.   I purchased this Thanks Scallop Border die from SSS a little while ago, so I paired it with the roses set.  When I die cut the border, I cut it from the pattern paper and the white cardstock together.  I pieced them together when I made the card and inlaid the letters back in the die cut.  The roses were die cut, stamped, and colored with copics.  I added the hearts and coated them and the roses with Wink of Stella shimmer.
 
Since I die cut the cardstock and pattern paper together, I had this piece to make another card.  This time I layered just the pattern paper piece on the white base and die cut and stamped the heart from the same stamp set as I used in the above card.  I inlaid the white letters in the die cut then just added the stamped sentiment and enamel dots to finish it off.
 
You can see more from our JUGs design team and our two guests from January, Vicki Parsons and Deepti Malik on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Love your cards, Lisa! That border die is terrific! How did I miss that? More shopping to do, I guess!
Anyway, both cards are gorgeous! Love the plaid paper, the hearts and the bit of sparkle!
