Just Us Girls #364 - Trend Week

Hello all!  It's been a little quiet here on the ol' blog.  I don't know what's going on, but I've been so busy and haven't been home much.  I can't wait for things to settle down a bit. 
 
This week is Trend Week over at Just Us Girls.  Sue chose a great one that we've been seeing a lot...pineapples. 
 
I wasn't sure I even had anything pineapple, then remembered I had purchased this stamp and die set from Essentials by Ellen.  Score!  I decided to make a tag.  I first put three distress paints down on my craft mat and spritzed it with water then dragged the tag through it.  I liked the effect I got.  Then I stamped and die cut the pineapple and adhered it with dimensional tape.  The sentiments were stamped in black ink.  The colors looked a little flat, so I spritzed everything with shimmer spritz.  It's subtle, but really pretty.  Then I added the Nuvo drops, sequins, and ribbon.  I thought this would be cute to attach to a bag with some pina colada mix in it!
 
You can see more from the JUGs DT and our October guest on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
