Just Us Girls #656 - Holiday Gift Tags

Hello everyone!  It's getting to be THAT time of the year!  The holidays are literally right around the corner.  Carol Mc has the perfect Wild Card challenge for us over at Just Us Girls...Holiday Gift Tags. 

I love making tags, but I hate when I see them get thrown out with the crumpled wrapping paper!  I don't usually put this much time into them, but I got carried away!  This is a Papertrey Ink tag set that I've had forever.  I'm not even sure it's still available.  I die cut it from white card stock and colored the ornaments with copic markers.  Then I had the idea to make it into a flat shaker, so I die cut another from white for the back and the top from white glitter card stock (which you can't see in the photo).  On the top one, I cut out the ornaments.  I added the clear pieces to the bottom and middle layers and added diamond dust glitter in between and adhered them together.  Then I adhered the white glitter piece on top.  I added the ribbon and die cut sentiment to finish it off.

Just Us Girls #655 - Photo Week

Hi friends!  Cecile has chosen a beautiful photo for the current Just Us Girls Photo Week challenge.  It's really so her style!  I love it!

I saw that feathery thing and immediately thought of this wheat image I just got last week at my LSS.  It's from Penny Black and is red rubber, so I used my much unused Tombow markers to color it.  I started with a gold color on the entire image, then used medium and dark brown markers to add shading.  It's a 5x7 card because the image is so big, and it looked too white.  I pulled out another red rubber background stamp and stamped over the image with antique linen oxide ink.  I added the die sentiment, which was stacked three times for dimension, and brown crystals.  I also rounded the right corners for some extra interest.

Just Us Girls #654 - Color Week

Hello!  I'm the hostess at Just Us Girls for this week's Color Week challenge.  I love autumn and chose some colors that remind me of my favorite season.

I started with this card.  I received a pretty paper pack from my friend Cheryl and it was in these colors.  I chose a pattern from it and the Fall Foliage stencil and die set from Pink Fresh.  The orange here looks yellow, but it really is orange.  This is a four-piece layering stencil set that has a coordinating die.  I layered the pieces onto the panel and added a twine bow and crystals.  Before I added the sentiment, I spritzed it with shimmer spray.

Then I did the next three cards, which were stenciled on one sheet of paper using the Falling for You layering stencil set from Taylored Expressions.  I used the same colors as in the first card and created three mini slim cards.  I chose card bases in the challenge colors.

Just Us Girls #653 - Trend Week

 Hi friends!  It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Sue chose CAS (clean and simple).

This is about as CAS as I can handle!  LOL!  I had these sunflowers already cut and colored on my desk.  They were colored with copic markers.  I die cut the "postage" die from Gina K and added the sunflowers with dimensionals.  The hi sentiment was die cut three times from brown cardstock and stacked together for dimension.  I stamped the sentiment in brown ink in the last block.  This was mounted on brown cardstock onto the white base. I added shimmer to the flowers.  I didn't even add any bling!  Unusual for me!

Just Us Girls #652 - Word Week

Hello friends!  I hope everyone who lives in Florida is doing well.  It's terrible seeing all the devastation on the news.  

This week's challenge over at Just Us Girls is the Word Week challenge.  Ina has chosen the word scraps. 

I have been wanting to use my scraps (which I have so much of!) with this strip die.  I started by stamping the image and coloring it with copic markers.  I die cut it three times for dimension.  Then I die cut the scrap strips and adhered them on the card base.  The sentiment was die cut three times and stacked for dimension too.  I added orange pearls and stamped the sentiment on the envelope.
