Just Us Girls #564 - Photo Week

This will be the last challenge of the year for Just Us Girls as we take a holiday break.  It's Photo Week and Cecile has this photo to inspire you.

This is a rather neutral color palette and I love it.  It has references to Christmas but I made a birthday card instead.

The little packages from C9 were heat embossed in gold, along with the accompanying sentiment. They were stamped with peach, kraft and gray ink, the panel cut down and layered with foam on a panel cut with RC lacy edged die backed with gray.

The Design Team hopes you'll join them, along with guest designer Joyce Mehrberg, in making a card for this challenge.  And please join us again in January for more great challenges.

Color Hues #6

The minute I saw the Color Hues challenge I thought of kraft cardstock.  Next came the idea for colored pencils on kraft which is a look I love.  The results?

The actual card is much prettier with that waxy shine you get from PolyChromos.  I used the Mondo Poinsettia from EbyE with a sentiment from SSS.  That is my wish for you this holiday season.

Inspired By #151

I have the C9 set with the little bottle trees so I had to make a card for Inspired By this week.

It didn't turn out quite like I imagined it but I didn't have time to redo it.  I tried to make the trees ombre' using Altenew inks and they are a little but too subtle a change to suit me.  I cut an MFT oval and added fun foam to the back before mounting on my card base.  The sentiment is from RC.

Thanks for dropping by.  I love it when you do.

Just Us Girls #563 - Color Week

 It's Color Week at Just Us Girls.  Want to see the colors Ina chose?

The first thing that came to mind was my EbyE Mondo Hydrangea so I went with it.

I stamped in black and clear heat embossed on watercolor paper.  Using my Altenew watercolors, I dropped in navy and purple in various places until the entire flower was done.  I couldn't add yellow so opted for gray for the centers.  A few spatters and a sentiment from Hero Arts finish it off.

I hope you check out the cards that the Design Team and our guest Joyce Mehrberg have made.  I'm sure you will be inspired to join the challenge.
