Just Us Girls #408 - Photo Week

Hi everyone!  It's Photo Week over at Just Us Girls and Maria has chosen this fun Hawaiian themed photo for us to be inspired by.
I was so happy to see this photo because I could use this cool stamp set from Concord & 9th.  I of course bought it because that girl named Jennifer McGuire (you know her, right?  LOL!) used it in a video and it looked so cool I had to have it!  She made it look so simple, but it took me at least four tries to get it (sort of) right. (I guess I cased her card too!)  I stamped the pineapple in Versamark and embossed it in white.  Then I used the coordinating stamps and my MISTI to stamp the fronds, flowers and leaves.  I kept to the colors in the photo when I matted the stamped image and chose the base.  I don't know if you can see it, but I stamped the yellow base with a background stamp and Versamark to give it some texture.  I spritzed it with shimmer spray and added the sequins.  The sentiment banner is on dimensional tape.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest, Darnell, on the JUGs blog.  This is Darnell's last week with us and we'd like to thank her for being such a great guest this month!

What a cool flowery pineapple, I love it! That Jennifer always seems to convince us that we need everything she uses!

What a fabulous card you have here Lisa. I bet it was a little tricky to make and 'that girl' Jennifer always makes things look so simple. A beautiful bright and cheerful tropical card. Love the bling!

Your floral pineapple looks fabulous, Lisa.

WOW! I didn't ever see this stamp/ or Video from JM. You did an incredible job, I can only imagine how hard it was! You nailed this challenge this week!

Darnell said...

You're very welcome, Lisa! It was entirely a pleasure for me to play with you! Your card for this challenge has my jaw bobbing up and down on my hands as I type! You ended up with a brilliant CASE of Jennifer's card. I love the matting and how you added the extra texture!! Hugs, Darnell
