Just Us Girls #414 - Word Week

Hi everyone!  This week is Word Week over at Just Us Girls and Nancy chose "Light" as our word.  There's a bunch of ways this word can be interpreted.
I chose to make a set of four 4.25" square cards using lamps as the focal point in each one.  I've had this stamp set from Papertrey Ink for some time, and I don't know if it's ever seen ink!  I started by picking out an old paper pack from Stampin' Up and die cut a square frame from four different colors and also die cut the lamp shades from the same paper.  I stamped the lamp bases in coordinating colors.  Before I adhered the lamps to the card base, I masked off an area and sponged the "light" from the lamp in yellow ink.  I stamped two different sentiments, added sequins, and spritzed the card with shimmer spray.

You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest for October, Karola Rehnstrom, on the JUGs blog

These are all so adorable and perfect for our Word this week! I love all of those polka dots and how you coordinated the lampshades with the same papers. Adding the light shining down from the lamp really makes these that much more amazing!
