What's the 'Word' at Just Us Girls

Hello and Welcome to my Saturday post for
Just Us Girls
Our Host this week is Nancy
and has chosen Sympathy for our Word Week.
It's one that pulls at our hearstrings - but also
gives comfort to the recipient.

As it is a new Month we have a
New Guest Designer. Linda Snodgrass from
Welcome Linda. So glad you are joining us and
looking forward to seeing your creations at JUGS this month.
I started my card with inking up the
SU Stippled Blossoms floral images in
Memento Angel Pink and Rhubarb Stalk
and fussy cutting them. Went on to the leaves
with Memento New Sprout.
For the background I added a butterfly
from SU Nature's Walk
and some script from
Happy Little Stampers Thinking of You
in SU Tip Top Taupe
 cutting that out with a stitched die.
Sentiment is heat embossed from the same stamp set.
Popped my floral display after adding a touch of WOS
to the top flower and some Liquid Pearls to the centres.
Randomly dropped a few glossy accents to the script.
Finished by attaching to Tip Top Taupe card base.

Pop over and see how our Guest Designer Linda
and the Team chose to use our Word
then join us in the Gallery.
You could be our Chic of the Week and
may be chosen as a future Guest.

Thanks for popping in.
Love reading your comments!

It's Time to - MAKE YOUR MARK

Hello and Welcome to our New challenge over at
where we need to see colouring in some way or other.
Make your mark with pencils, pens, sponges
water colours, inks etc - you get the drift.

Here's my Make.
I started by randomly inking my 
STAMPloratons Trendy Leaves
with Memento Olive Grove/Peanut Brittle
and Rhubarb Stalk.
Added small dots from SU Timeless Textures
with Tim's Gathered Twigs.
Backed that with torn card stock.
Added some jute for interest.
Finished by adding a touch of WOS
to the Rhubarb Leaves
and the CUTplorations Thankful Word Die.

Hope you will pop over and see what my Team Mates
created and come join us in our Gallery.

Thanks fro dropping in.

The CUTplorations Gals are 'Back'

Hello and a Big Welcome!
Our hiatus  over at STAMPlorations is over
and it is the CUTplorations Gals turn to inspire you
to join us for our Brand New Challenge Here
Now I know it's Pumpkin Time over the Pond
so what better way to celebrate than by making a card
for our October Challenge. 
It doesn't have to be a pumpkin -  you can interpret
the photo any way you choose.

I chose the 
to showcase, playing around with a technique
 I had never tried before until recently.
I started my background by randomly inking up stamps from
STAMPlorations Mixed-Media-Grunge
with  Tim's Distress Inks in Gathered Twigs
Crushed Olive/Carved Pumpkin
and Fossilized Amber.
I then started on my pumpkin with colours above
 and die cutting.
I then added lots of layers of clear embossing powder
heat setting after each application. I quickly
put it in my freezer hoping I would be successful
in getting it to crack. And it worked!

I inked the CUTplorations Thankful-Word-Die
and did the same to that but not quite as pronounced.
Cut out my background with the
CUTplorations Crazy-Double-Running-Stitch-Rectangle-Nesting-Dies
and adhered some inked up dry wall tape for interest.
Popped my pumpkin and attached the sentiment
to basic white card base. 


Hope you will pop over to our Blog
and check out what my Team Mates created
for your pleasure and would love to see
you in our Gallery this month.
