Just Us Girls #580 - Color Week

Hi friends!  I'm the hostess over at Just Us Girls for the Color Week challenge.  I chose yellow, coral, and raspberry.  I correlated these colors to Distress inks squeezed lemonade, abandoned coral, and picked raspberry.

I purchased the April Hero Arts kit because I really liked the three stencils included in it.  I used all three stencils, using a different challenge color for each one.  I started with a larger piece of paper and realized I could make two mini slimline cards by cutting it in half, so I did!  I just changed out the sentiments and used different flowers on them.  The sentiments were die cut from black cardstock and I die cut the outline from vellum.

I added a yellow piece of cardstock behind the main piece to add more color.  Both cards are spritzed with shimmer spritz and added crystals as well. 

I wanted to try another idea I had.  This time the coral and raspberry inks were stenciled using the same stencil.  I just turned it to create the circle designs.  Then I used the line stencil and neon glitz paste in yellow.  The flower is from the same die set and I used a different sentiment and used white cardstock for the outline instead of vellum like I did on the previous two cards.

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

I can see you will get a lot of use from those stencils, Lisa. Looks like you combined last week's challenge with this week's. lol All three cards are bright and cheerful and the black sentiments work perfectly with them.
