Just Us Girls #612 - Photo Week

 Hi friends!  I'm the hostess for this week's Just Us Girls challenge and I chose this picture for inspiration.

I know I had something in mind when I chose it back in August, but I couldn't remember for the life of me!  When I went through my Christmas stamps, I found this sentiment and thought it would be perfect.  I saw swirls on the paper bags in the photo and used a 3-D embossing folder on kraft paper to mimic it.  I lightly inked the raised parts with white pigment ink to highlight those areas.  I then inked up the border with several layering stamps and inks.  I added the border with dimensional squares and cut off the pieces hanging over the edge.  I used those pieces on the bottom of the white panel.  I added star dust stickles to the red berries for some sparkle.

You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest, Rachel Davis, on the JUGs blog.  This is her last week with us as guest for this month.  Thanks so much for being such a great guest!

Just a reminder that we are taking the month of December off, so we will be back January 1, 2022.

We are also looking to add a design team member to the team.  See the JUGs blog post for details!

The poinsettias, embossed kraft and, especially, that sentiment make for a gorgeous card! Wonderful take on the photo! Now I need to find that sentiment!

I love how the big sentiment is the main focus on this beauty. The embossed background is beautiful with the white highlights and that border is absolutely gorgeous! Great picture for our inspiration.

Fabulous creation Lisa and that photo had so much to choose from. Love how we all see different things this week. Also that sentiment is awesome.

Maybe that stamp was what you were thinking when you picked the photo, Lisa, because it's perfect. The white on the embossing makes it stand out and the border is beautiful.
