Just Us Girls #429 - Photo Week

Hi friends!  I'm the hostess at Just Us Girls this week and I'm thinking spring!  These cute flowers always pop up around my house even in the snow!  So pretty!
 
So I watched Jennifer McGuire video this morning...'nough said, right?  She was demonstrating GinaK's new wreath building template (which I of course ordered immediately), and I thought I could recreate it with a square die cut.  I first die cut a square from a piece of cardstock and then put the negative piece in the MISTI and the square die cut in the negative space. I stamped the flower in the corner, then turned the square piece three more times and stamped the flower each time.  Then I went in with the colors and did the same procedure.  When stamping the leaves, I had to mask the flower.  All I had to do when done was stamp the sentiment and add some star dust stickles in the center of the flowers.  It's mounted on yellow cardstock and that's mounted on fun foam to the base.  It's a 4.25 x 4.25 card. 

You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest on the JUGs blog.

Well that way-laid me for a while. lol I had to go check out the video, then check out Gina K. Now I'm back to say I love your arrangement and you didn't even need the template, Lisa. I'm with Carol. I'm going to get out this set and CASE your card.

Oh my, this card really is gorgeous! I love your coloring and the flowers along the edges - and that font on the sentiment is my favorite ever! I love those MFT sets that use that font - and you have used everything so perfectly together to make your beautiful card!

Absolutely gorgeous! You used one of my favorite sets on this and those flowers are stunning. Love the layers you inked up on those petals. Beautiful arrangement around the sentiment. Great photo choice for us this week, too.

Sympathy cards are always so hard but this is beautiful. I love those big bold flowers on each corner looks wonderful. Great job.
