Just Us Girls #650 - Color Week

 Hello friends!  It's Color Week at Just Us Girls and Bobby has chosen a very pretty fall color combo.

I went through my fall stamps and I came across this pumpkin that I've always loved from Honey Bee.  I stamped it in three shades of orange with three different stamps.  It looked too white, so I shaded it with some light orange ink.  The middle piece was die cut three times and stacked for dimension.  I stamped the stem, leaves (I put too much shimmer on the large leaf), and twigs and added some crystals down the middle piece.  I chose a weave stencil for the background and brown ink.  It looks too busy, but I had to live with it.  I chose a simple sentiment.

Just Us Girls #649 - Trend Week

Hello friends!  We have a new challenge over at Just Us Girls today.  It's Trend Week, and Carol Mayne has chosen REPETITION.  That's a fun and interesting trend challenge.

I made this card (that I've never shared) as part of the Crop and Create Delivered event sponsored by Scrapbook and Cards.  It is a weekend long event with a box of supplies from popular stamp companies (such as Gina K, Lawn Fawn, Concord & 9th, Pink Fresh, etc.) and very famous instructors (such as Gina K, Jenn Shurkus, Jennifer McGuire, etc.) doing card making classes online.  The amount of cards and supplies you end up with is crazy!  I'm doing it again in October.  I've already received my box of supplies and it's amazing once again.

This card was sponsored by The Stamp Market with Amy Yingling teaching the class.  I used the stamp set A Little Bit of Everything and the coordinating die set to create this repeated sentiment in a rainbow of colors.  I used Catherine Pooler inks.  The flower was stamped and die cut with the coordinating die set and popped up with foam dots.  I added crystals to the card and center of the flower.  It's a one-layer card ladies and gents!  Not often do I create one like that!
