It's Word Week with a B at Just Us Girls

Hi there and Welcome.
Today's post is of course for
Just Us Girls 'cause it's Saturday.
I am Hosting this week and it's
Word Week - I chose

As you can see I went Bold with Bright Colours.
Once again my Brusho's came out for the background.
I stenciled my floral image with white texture paste
mixed with orange acrylic paint.
This was cut from a stitched die as was the orange
background paper.
Added a gem to the middle of the flower
also some orange Nuvo Drops to the background.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations 
and cut from a MFT die.

It's a new month which means we have a 
New Guest Designer - Talented Karren Johnson
Welcome Karren - lovely to have you join us.

That's it for me. Now pop over and see what
Karren and the Jugheads have boldly created
and come join us in our Gallery this week.

We are 'Focusing on Sentiments' for April at STAMPlorations.

Time is just flying by and now April is here!
Hi and Welcome to today's post.
It is all about Focusing on Sentiments over at

Checkout all the details Here

I thought the STAMPlorations Large Hellinium 
was 'Simply Gorgeous' so used that as part of my card.

To start with the background I inked white card stock
all over with Tim's Peacock Feathers
sprayed it with water then placed my
lifting that to take a bit of colour away
then placing it back to add
Tim's Mermaid Lagoon for a bright effect.
It was slightly damp when I heat embossed the
Large Hellinium (sorry it is out of stock)
with Lawn Fawn White Embossing Powder
and some stuck to the stenciling which
I was kinda happy with the effect.
I then added the heat embossed 'simply' sentiment
cut out my 
and heat embossed it also to blend in.
Finished with corner rounding
attaching it to my white card base.


That's it for my part
there is so much more to see over at

Off course there are prizes to win so 
don't forget to leave a comment here
for your chance to be a winner...
and why not create something
with your sentiment as your focal point
and add it to the Gallery.

It's Out of My Bits Box with Something New!

Hi there and Welcome! It's a bit dreary here today so
perfect time to show you what I was playing with yesterday.
The new challenge over at the
and the element we need to use is BIRD.

I rummaged through my bits box
to see what I could find - just in case
there was something there and I didn't need to
make a new watercolour background.
Yay! I was in luck as I found this
 perfect little piece of 
 Brusho Watercoloured Canvas.
Just the right size to heat emboss my 
new not out of the packet stamp
from STAMPlorations called
Now I am not a colour - in - er type but knew this would 
look amazing behind my type of  colouring -
Watercolour Backgrounds.
I only had to cut a smidgen off my canvas colour
and added it to a sticky background for support
and onto white card stock.
I then got out my Wow Metallic Platinum
Embossing Powder. That was the easy part.
Now just how many bird stamps do we have?
That was the hard part - trying to find
just the right one. After several attempts
I found the one -  from SU. 
Inked up with Memento Sweet Plum,
adding some Nuvo Glitter Gloss and fussy cutting.
She was slightly popped then I added a coloured mat.
This was popped onto Metallic Sculptured card stock.
This was also used as my base.
The simple sentiment is from SU and
finished off my card.
Here is a close up 

I have a watercoloured background, adding heat embossing,
stamping and my BIRD!

I am dropping this card over to the
Happy 2nd Anniversary.

Thanks for dropping in today.
