Just Us Girls #252 - Word Week & Addicted to CAS #44 - Gold

Heartfelt Creations Winner: Congratulations to Anita Braddock


This week over at JUGS, Nancy's word is Ribbon.  Now I am sure there are so many creative ways to use ribbon -- in fact, I am sure the Team out did themselves.  Me on the other hand, I am sticking with what I love; a pretty satin bow.

I seem to be on a "pouncing" kick lately.  Have you seen my 9 second video showing what "pouncing" is?  [Just cracks me up a 9 second video - LOL]

Come on over and play in the Ribbon challenge at Just Us Girls!  It's an easy challenge and we hope you join in~


 
It is also Addicted to CAS Challenge time. This week it is all about Gold.
We are being sponsored by


When I think gold, I think 50th Anniversary and Christmas.  Since Christmas is coming up, I went with that.  I used the stunning Memory Box Die; Frosty Border, and a sentiment from Hero Arts, Merry Christmas Trees.

There are endless possibilities with Gold -- go for it!  Add a ribbon and once again, you have 2 challenges under your belt!


Thanks for stopping by~

Your Christmas card is so elegant - the die cut is amazing and a beautiful focal image. The gold sentiment really pops. I love the design.

On the first card, your signature bow is a standout as always. Love the pouncing :)

Two beautiful cards Vicki. LOVE the design with the pouncing ... and yes, I watched your 9 second video :) You are always so concise with your comments ... and now your videos! :) Love the colors and how the alcohol inks reacted with watercolor paper - will give that a try!

Gorgeous Christmas card ... LOVE the frosty border done in gold! Loll xx

Ever so gorgeous, this duo, Vicki! Your pouncing creates such eye-catching results (fabulous video) and your Christmas card...happy sigh! The Frosty Border is calling my name! I'd love to know which Memory Box dies are your favourites, as I'm making a 'wish list' for the next time I travel to see my family. A new scrapbook store has opened - four hours away, but still 'close-ish'!
Hugs~c

I came over to tell you how much I love your classic green, red, and white Christmas card with the gold sediment and fancy gold flourish border, and I'm delighted to be inspired by your JUGS card as well! You rock, Vicki!! Hugs, Darnell

Both cards are really gorgeous, Vicki! Your ribbon adds such a beautiful flair on the first one, and your border die cut is stunning on the 2nd one!

Lisa Kind said...

You are getting a lot of mileage from your technique! It's so fun! And you do bows so well, so it was an expectation that you would use on your card! Very pretty.

Nancy said...

I am in agreement with Sue T....I am super jealous of your perfectly tied ribbon! Love the pouncing idea too! Great card!

Sue VanDeVusse said...
