It's 'Reminder Time' at Mix It Up Challenge

It's that time of the month once more for a 'Reminder'
that you still have time to play in the current challenge at

and the Stamping is Optional.

I used a favourite colour combination here
with Stampin' Up - Baja Breeze & Calypsol Coral.
My layers of lace are also from SU - Delicate Details
which were heat embossed in white.
After embossing them I sponged the background 
in the above colours.
Added a small doily to the background.
I cut 2 small pieces of ribbon to add to the back
of my sentiment which was cut from a
Spellbinder Die and matted with a 
Stitched Die from MFT and popped.
The sentiment is from SU Happy Birthday Wishes.

If you haven't been over to Our Blog
to check out what Team A made
I urge you to do so. You could be so inspired
to come join us this month with your
Anything Goes Project with the option of Stamping.
Hope to see you there.

What's 'Trending' at Just Us Girls?

How 'awesome' that Chris chose those 
fabulous powder dies as our Trend at Just Us Girls.
I have only recently bought these addicted little items
and am having so much fun each time I get them out.
My powders are Brusho's

I started by heat embossing my butterfly image with
white embossing powder onto water colour paper then
 added brusho's. After that dried I cut it out with a
stitched postage stamp die popping it
in front of white card stock and then to my card base.

I am sure you are going to want to play with this Challenge so
pop over Here and check out what our June Guest Estelle
and the Super Talented Design Team
have created for your inspiration.
See you there!

Just to make you all envious you may already know
I will be swanning around at a Craft Show
with good friends including Cheryl Wright
(I know a lot of you know her)
when this goes live!
She is coming up again from Melbourne.
We will have a crafty time ahead as Cheryl is coming home with me
and staying for a whole week. Yay!

There's 'New Designers' over at Cardsz 4 Galz

With this heading it gives me great pleasure to announce that
I have been chosen as part of the new Designers at
The scary part of my first posting was making a card for 
Challenge #49 - and is 'Graduation'
Details are On our Blog
We have our graduation here in Australia
much later in the year. 
As I don't really have anything suitable in my craft supplies
I had to rely on good ol' Google for my image.
As you can see I landed up making 2.
This one is for the more serious Graduate (lol)
I cut out this cute Owl which I found on Google
using MFT Peek a boo die and decided to
add him on top of some SU Designer Paper.
Before adhering him I added some stenciling 
from TH Speckles in Dried marigold.
Added several branches from Memory Box
Sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
I added some Glossy Accents to his eyes
and WOS to the circles around his eyes 
and his beak.
And this one says Time to let your hair down!
I did have a bit of fun with my background
adding a bit of smooching stenciling and
a touch of Brusho's.
Again the image is from Google
cut from MFT die and backed with a second cut.
Sentiments are from Paper Smooches again.
Finished off with a few sequins.

Please pop over and Welcome the other new Designers
Chris at
and Tammy at
and of course the Galz to see their cards.

Thanks so much for popping in.
Love to read your Comments.
