Time Out #136 - Home Sweet Home Challenge

Hi friends!  The current Time Out challenge is in its second week, and I have a reminder card for you.
We are sponsored by Stamplorations for this challenge, and I'm using this very pretty stamp set called Frames & Flowers.  I used the colors from the inspiration photo and tried to emulate the rectangular design on the wall with my grid stencil and glimmer paste.  I stamped the flowers and leaves inside the rectangle frame.  I needed a sympathy card, so I added this sending prayers sentiment.

Just Us Girls #489 - Photo Week

Hi friends!  It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls, and Vicki chose this cool rainbow design.  So on trend right now!
I made this card a few weeks ago at a class that Stephanie Klauck from MFT taught.  It fit right in with the rainbow theme of the inspiration photo.  The strips were die cut in various rainbow colors as was the word hello.  The image is just so cute!  I colored it with various gray copics to make it look like a black and white photo.  I just love how fun this card is!  This is all Stephanie's design.

Just Us Girls #488 - Color Week

Hi all!  There's a new challenge over at Just Us Girls and it's a color challenge.  Maria wants us to use the colors in this beautiful photo below.
I made this card for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.  I loved the colors of the tulips in the photo and used that as inspiration as well.  This is a layering stamp set from Altenew.  The tulip was stamped in yellow, red, and purple, and the leaves were stamped in two shades of green.  I stamped the sentiment in the same purple.  I added crystals in the same colors as the tulip and mounted the panel on dark purple cardstock.

Just Us Girls #487 - Trend Week

Happy Saturday!  This week at Just Us Girls, Nancy chose Bold Letters as our Trend Week challenge.
Loved this challenge, as it gave me a chance to use a die set that I had never used yet!  I started with looking for a sketch (I believe the challenge is over for this sketch).  I then chose this pattern paper.  I think I bought this pack from JoAnn's.  I thought it would be a fun one to use for a birthday card.  Then I die cut the word three times from black cardstock and stacked it.  It also has some shimmer on it.  I stamped the sentiment underneath it and lastly added some colorful crystals.

Time Out #135 - Inspired by Words Challenge

Hi friends!  The new challenge over at Time Out is the Inspired by Words challenge.  This is the quote this week:
"Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground."
-Theodore Roosevelt
Stars!  That's my take on the quote.  I needed a college graduation card, so the stars made it an easy card to make.  I started by searching my stash for stars, and pulled out this Shifter stencil from Tim Holtz.  I sponged Twisted Citron and Salty Ocean inks on the cardstock, then die cut it with a wonky stitched die.  The sentiment was die cut three times and stacked with some shimmer on top.  I stamped the other sentiment was stamped in Versamark and embossed in white on the black cardstock.  Perfect grad card!  And I made this in my new craft room!  It's not finished completely yet, but I was able to bring up the essentials to create this card.  Can't wait to get it completely finished!

Just Us Girls #486 - Word Week

Happy Saturday!  We have a new challenge on the Just Us Girls blog.  It our word week and Carol chose "movement".  What a fun word and so on trend too!

When this magic picture changer die from Lawn Fawn came out, I IMMEDIATELY bought it!  And when I got it, I IMMEDIATELY made two cards with it!  I think this was the first one which was made a while ago.  I also made this one.  I also made another similar to the other one that my niece requested, but I guess I never took a photo of it!  It was so cute...another dog themed card!  Anyway, on this one, I stamped and colored the butterfly with copic markers on one piece, then stamped the sentiment on another.   I used this pretty rainbow paper from Lawn Fawn as well.  The sequins finished it off.

When you pull up the tab, you get this new picture!  I was so amazed by this die, and it is super easy to use!

Here they are side-by-side.  So cute!
