Just Us Girls #363 - Word Week

Well this is a fabulous word for Sharon's last challenge.  [Yes, we are all so sad she is leaving us.]  With the time of year, the cards [everyone creates] will be beautiful I have no doubt.

I used MFT Wild Greenery die-namics for my leaves, and a sentiment from MFT Simply Fabulous Sayings.  [I just love the font in this set.]

To make my leaves shimmery, I sponged a card stock panel with distress inks, brushed on Perfect Pearls, and then cut out the leaves with the dies.  It is so pretty in real life.
Okay, your turn!  We hope you join in at JUGS #363 -- the gallery should be outstanding with the bright Fall colors.

Playing in Challenges

Oh how fun is it to have some extra time to play in a couple of challenges!  Today I chose Freshly Made Sketches #256, along with [brand new to me] Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #87; masculine anything goes.

I tried a new technique for me, embossing over water color. It worked pretty good actually.  It certainly was easy enough [with the help of my MISTI].    If you emboss twice, it gives a nice raised effect with the textured water color paper.  I used Inspired By Stamping Just For You set, along with a MFT Jumbo Fish Tail Banner Die-namics die.  I enjoyed these challenges -- thanks!


See ya!

STAMPlorations Inspiration #97

It's time again for the STAMPlorations Inspiration day.  I am also entering my card into the Fall Lover's Coffee Challenge.  STAMPlorations is a sponsor, and Shery has so many coffee images, that it just made sense. ;)

For my card I did a little multi media using water colors, and embossing paste with the Shutters Stencil.  I used After Coffee and Framed Coffee stamp sets.  To finish off the card, I used the Crazy Double Stitched Rectangles.

Now, pop on over to see even more fun eye candy on the STAMPlorations Blog.  Don't forget to leave a comment. There is a random winner for a gift certificate.

Heartfelt Creations Alumni September Hop

It's time for the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop.  I do like this hop.  Lots of lovely eye candy~

For my card, I used the Classic Sunflower cling stamp set, along with the matching Classic Sunflower die. 

 I love the way these stamps are all connected.  Makes it awesome to use -- stamp, lay die over the images, and cut out.  So easy.  

Here is a list of the participating Designers this month:

Don't forget to leave a comment.  There will be a random winner of a HFC $25 gift certificate!
 [I will post the winner on my blog Saturday]

Have fun!!

SCS Color Challenge #602

Barbara chose pretty colors this week over at the SCS Color Challenge; Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum and  Smokey Slate.  The dessert is thinking of you or sympathy.

While I didn't have Sweet Sugarplum, I got close.

I used a flower die from Memory Box, Lovely Peony Outline, along with a Simon Says With Sympathy die.  While I was in Washington, I bought a We Are Memory Keepers, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, and used that for some texture.

Your turn.  How do you see using the colors?  Come on over to SCS Color Challenge and show us your creation~

Just Us Girls #362 - Inspiration Week

Yep, it's getting to be Fall time.  This pretty inspiration photo that Bobby found is awesome, right? All the gorgeous, bright Fall colors.

Well of course, I picked up on those, along with the sunflower.  I used a retired Inspired By Stamping set, French Country.  I really love this set.  It is a shame it's retired.  My thanks is a CUTplorations word die.

How does the photo inspired you?  Come on over to JUGS and show us your card.  Meanwhile, while you are there, be sure and check out the Team's cards -- can you say WOW!

Fall Coffee Lover's Hop

It's  time again for the Fall Coffee Hop!!  The success of this hop is amazing, and Amy does such a fabulous job at Hostessing it!  This year, I am using STAMPlorations images, one of the sponsors of this hop.

Shery specifically designed a few new sets just for this hop!  I was fortunate to get 3 of them, and let me tell you -- I had so much fun using these sets!

  There are a ton of possibilities using this stamp, Framed Coffee To Go, but I stuck with the actual stamp, and added a sentiment.  Isn't it fun?  Oh, yeah, I almost forgot the CUTploration Coffee Word!  Can't ever go wrong with a coffee word die :).

Now for my fun project!  When I first saw this next set, Anywhere There's Coffee, I instantly thought of a key chain, and using my Shrinky Dinks!  (Also entering this into the SIP Challenge #66; anything but a card)

For a more proportional idea;

It had to have a card to go with it, right?  Of course it does~

A cup card naturally.  :) I used the newly released Anywhere There's Coffee.  The candle is from STAMPlorations Kathryn's Big Wish, and the hb is from Balloons & Banners.  Super fun gift don't you think?

That's it for me.  I can't wait to check out all the coffee cards this hop.  So much inspiration!
Pop on over to the STAMPlorations Blog HERE to see the additional prizes that Sherry is offering!!

Sieze the Birthday Challenge - Soft & Simple

For this challenge the topping is soft & simple.

While this might not look simple, it really is.  It's just sponging over a white embossed image [retired Hero Arts Floral Blossom, and Happy Stamp & Cut set, along with the birthday from Altenew Label Love.], and mounted over a panel of designer paper.  I do love simple cards :).  I am also going to enter this into Altenew's Inspiration Challenge.  Not sure it qualifies, but I did use a product, it was inspired by the photo [the yellows and white], and Altenew does carry multiple floral images, [I just don't have any] ;).
Your turn!  Come on over to Seize the Birthday Challenge and play along!  Don't forget to check out the Team's cards while you are there~
