Hello! Just Us Girls is hosting it's Wild Card week challenge...if there is a fifth Saturday in the month, as we have this month, we have an extra challenge. The hostess, this week it's Bobby, gets to choose a challenge of her choosing. Bobby chose the word leaves, and let me tell you that made me happy!
I have two cards to share this week. I love fall and I love creating with leaves. This first card uses a leaves wreath stencil. It's quite large, but I cut it down to fit an A-2 size card. I used various fall colored distress oxide inks to create the wreath. I added gold splatter (something I don't do much of...even with a splat box I had gold splatter on my phone, my desk, etc.!). Then I die cut the sentiment using brown, orange, and gold cardstocks. I originally used green ink to stencil the dots on the wreath, but when I added the gold splatter I thought gold crystals would look better. Which in my opinion they did! I mounted this panel on a brown mat and added it to the white base.
Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card. I decided to use a leaves turnabout stamp for this one. I went with green, purple, and light and blue inks. The sentiment was die cut with gold cardstock. I added stardust stickles to the berries on the wreath and mounted on pattern paper. I added strips of gold on either side of the main panel.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our October guest, Nora Noll on the JUGs blog. This is her last week with us and she's done a fabulous job. Thanks for joining us Nora!
We are also saying a fond fairwell to our JUGs teammate Angie. She has been a wonderful asset to our team and she will be sorely missed! Best wishes to you Angie!
