Hi everyone! My friend Cheryl is the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls for our Color Week, and these are the colors she chose. I have to admit that I was stumped when I first saw them! But they look great together, as you'll see over on the JUGs blog!
So as I said, I was stumped. But then along came Jennifer McGuire! Thank goodness for her, you know what I'm sayin'? (Said in my best Laura Bassen voice!) Jennifer posted this on her blog and I shamelessly CASED her card! However, I didn't do all the steps she did with her stamping. But I so love the outcome! I was at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, yesterday and purchased two blue inks from Altenew (not even with this challenge in mind!) and they just happened to be navy and aqua! Then I went on the hunt for teal. I thought I had one from SU, but didn't. The closest I could find was Bermuda Bay. Close enough I say!
I stamped a panel in those three inks with a border stamp and overlapped them a little. Then I cut the panel almost in half and stamped the sentiment and flower in Versmark using the Misti. All of that was embossed with white embossing powder. The front panel of the card was impressed with the linen impression plate and enamel dots were added. That stamped panel was added using craft foam.
You can see more from our design team and our guest over on the JUGs blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
