The Sun is Shining over at Just Us Girls

It's Saturday so Hi and 
Welcome to today's post for Just Us Girls
Our Host for our Photo Week is Nancy
who is certainly thinking of 'Sun'
with this gorgeous Sunflower Bloom.
I was undecided as to stamp or use a die cut
for my sunflower but decided on a die and to
make my sunflower a little different.
I cut several flowers and simply cut them in half.
First off  I stenciled my Tim Holtz Stone background
with Gel Medium and Magicals in Burnt Orange
then quickly added Ranger Copper Embossing
and heat set it adding another texture onto white cs.
I then cut out some green flourishes.
Attached my sunflowers then added 
MS Brownstone Glitter to the popped embossed centres.
My STAMPlorations sentiment
 is inked with VersaColor Bronze.
Finishing with a yellow cotton bow.
Papers used were SU Hello Honey/Mossy Meadow.

Please pop over and see how our
Talented Guest  Patti Kehl and the Team
were inspired by that gorgeous Sunflower
and come join us this week.
Hope to see you in our Gallery.

'Thinking of You' in Ombre Colours

Time for a New challenge over at
Crafting with Dragonflies and looking for
the Colour 'Purple'
Woohoo for me! It's my Favourite!
I'm Guesting again this time round.

We all know how hard it is to get 'purple'
to photograph in it's true colours. I did my best.

 Playing here by smooching with Tim's Oxide Inks in
Wilted Violet/Seedless Preserves
and Lindy's Magicals in Sweet Violoct Purple Teal
with some acetate drying as I go along.
Can you see the shimmer!
I lightly stamped a few of Tim's Wild Flowers
in the background with the above colours
then got out the matching dies cutting in
white and coloured cs to match my base.
My Thinking of You is from CUTplorations.
This was cut with a stitched die and adhered
to my card base. 

Hope you like what I created and do pop over
and see what the Dragonfly Designers created.
Will you be in the Gallery?

Thanks for dropping in

I'm Holidaying in ...........

HI and Welcome.
It's Holiday Time over at 
Once more I went a different direction with my Holiday Card
focusing in on 'Being on a Holiday'
Vacation to my overseas friends!

It's getting close to the Queen's Birthday here in Australia
(sort of) so I thought I would go very British here.
The gorgeous big stamp is from JustRite
called London Background. I inked this with
Tim's Gathered Twigs. 
While in London you...
call home from one of the famous
red telephone booths don't you?
It's from SU Feeling Sentimental and
inked with Tim's Festive Berries - 
and you need to get in so you add a 
red pearl for the door knob.
This is set behind the popped background
which was cut from MFT's Peek a Boo Die.
 Hello is also from SU and cut
from another MFT die.
The From sentiment is by JustRite. 

Thanks for dropping in.
Don't forget to pop over and see how
my Team Mates chose to show of
their Holiday Projects.

Looking forward to seeing you
in our Gallery from 
Tropical North Queensland.
I am off to spend a bit of time with family.

'Things with Wings' Reminder

Hi there Crafty Friends.
My post today is a Reminder that there is still time
to join in the fun over at STAMPlorations
with our Thing with Wings in full swing.
Check out All the details HERE.

Here is the card I made for our Reminder.

I have only recently indulged in Alcohol Inks
and I could spend countless hours just
playing with them.
I  used Yupo Paper and just inked away!
Because I was just experimenting I do not know
what colours I used.
However I do know the products I used and they are
for my frame which was cut from metallic card stock.
My Butterfly was cut 3 times from
metallic paper and mulberry paper with the
CUTplorations -Flutter-Zen-2-Layering-Dies
and smooched with Magicals. You can see the
Result in the close up photo.

Sentiment was cut twice and glued
slightly apart for effect using the
Card base is from Bazzill.
Finished by adding some coloured cotton
and a gem to the centre of the butterfly.

Here's the CUTplorations Products used above.

during the month for your pleasure and
