Just Us Girls #411 - Color Week

Hi friends!  Today is color week over at Just Us Girls, and Maria has chosen a warm fall color palette.
 
I just got this new stamp/die set from Concord and 9th.  As I was thinking about what I was going to make, I picked up this set to take it down to my craft room and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.  It's a two-step stamp, so I stamped the first layer in yellow and the second in orange.  Then I stamped the berries in burgundy and die cut the wreath.  Then I die cut the words and added crystal drops to the berries.  The wreath was spritzed with shimmer spray.  The front panel of the card base was given some texture with an impression plate.  The wreath was popped up with dimensional tape.

CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #182 - CASE a Girl Friday

Hi everyone!  The challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays is to CASE a Girl Friday's card.  Cool challenge!
 
 I chose this beautiful card by Michelle Lupton.  I love her style and this one really caught my eye for a number of obvious reasons!

Here's my case.  I went for the layout (which BTW was not easy to figure out...at least for me!), the embossed background and the pinks.  I started by embossing the Curtis background stamp in Versamark and embossed it with clear powder.  I added Distress Oxide inks over the embossing and blended it together.  Then I cut it in half diagonally and laid it on the base so I could center the sentiment between the two pieces.  I stamped the sentiment in black, attached the panels to the base, and added sequins.  My card does not do Michelle's justice, but I do like it.

Just Us Girls #409 - Word Week

Hi friends!  I'm the hostess over at Just Us Girls for our Word Week challenge.  I chose the word "SHOES" as I've always loved them and have many!
This is another new stamp I picked up last week at a Scrap and Stamp show especially for this challenge.  It's from Technique Junkies and is one stamp.  I stamped it in Versafine onyx black ink onto Bristol smooth white paper and embossed it in clear powder.  It's colored with Zig markers.  I had to color the soles of the shoes red!  The straps of the shoes were covered with glossy accents and I added some Nuvo crystal drops.  The panel was die cut with a wonky stitches die.
