School's In!

Hello and Welcome to my card for the 
new challenge over at Just Us Girls.
Vicki is Hosting our Photo Week with

Every time I looked at this photo Mo and Jo did a runner
but I persevered and called them back.
I rummaged through my DP box looking for 
patterned paper to go in those banners and came across
the perfect piece instead. 
I inked up my SU Woodgrain stamp as backing.
I then got out my Jumbo Banners from MFT
and started cutting away.
Added inserts to match the colours and letters in the photo.
Cut out the letters with a SB die with the word STUDY
I needed a little something either side of the banners
so cut out some tiny ones and added rub on numbers.
(these have been in my stash for yeeeeears)
Popped up bits here and there and my card was done.
Card stock used is SU Tip Top Taupe
but certainly didn't photograph well. Sorry.

That's it for today.
Pop over and see what our 
August Guest Designer Ros Crawford
and the Team created.

Thanks Ros for the pleasure of seeing
your talents at JUGS this month.

You are 'FABULOUS'

Time for a new Challenge over at
Addicted to Stamps and More and this time round
It's Everyone's Favourite - Anything Goes.
Hello and Welcome to today's Post.
I will admit I have had this card done for 
quite some time - just hadn't blogged it so - here it is.
You can all guess what my background is!
Yes Alcohol Inked. Cut with a stitched die.
I decided to add a bit of dimension and
cut out the centre with MFT Peek a Boo Die
and popped it.
Inked the top sentiment onto my white card base
and die cut the fabulous - both from
STAMPlorations. The 'fabulous' has a 
touch of shimmer from a Nuvo pen.
And there you have it - pretty simple
but love the bold colours from the AI's.

Pop over and see what my Team Mates created
and come join our Gallery.
Love to see you there.
Thanks for dropping in

Strawberries? Yes Please.

Hello and a Big Welcome. 
Today's post is for a couple of challenges 
I found while browsing. Something a little 
different from flowers and the like.
Well not too far away as it is 'fruit'.
When I saw the challenges for
and my Good Friend Bobby was Hosting
I knew I had a NBUS stamp that was perfect.
Also The Paper Players challenge calls for
I heat embossed my NBUS Repeat Impressions 
Strawberry Stamp - 515L
with WOW Metallic Platinium powder
onto water colour paper and coloured
my image with various colours of 
red, green,orange and lemon Brusho's.
Added a water wash to the background
with metallic paints.
Attached this to my parchment card base.
I cut a octagon shape from the same card base
and popped it for dimension.
Sentiment stamp is part of a set gifted by a friend
which matched perfectly. Inked in Festive Berries
and heat embossed in clear powder.
Finished with some red twine.

Thanks so much for popping in. Love reading your comments.
