Sending Hugs for JUGS

 Welcome to today's post for Just Us Girls
and it's our Trend Week.
Hosting is Maria and chose one that is
'All Over Blogland'
You guessed it - we are to make a 
Slimline Card.

I refrained from adding Lindy's Magical's
for my card but instead concentrated on some
 Designer Papers. My card is a smaller version
of a slimline card and I really like it.
I distressed the edges of both papers and tore
just one side. I backed my floral display
with a torn inked piece for another dimension.
Lucky I have Press & Seal
to temporarily adhere my floral display
so I could glue it in place.
I did have a plain piece of orange paper I was
going to use for my flowers but found a
piece of colourful (Magical's) paper
in my bits box I cut which looks so much nicer.
I know I said I wasn't going to use those magic powders
but it is only a wee bit.
Sentiment from Altenew
is cut out with an old Cuttlebug die.
Finished by adhering to white card base.

Pop over and see what our Guest Leslie and the Team
created and come join us in the Gallery.

You're the SUNSHINE

 Hello and Welcome.
I had a fun play day after seeing the theme 
and have made 2 cards very differently
for this challenge.
So nice to be able to spend more time
in my play room again and join in.

For my first one as it is so so sunny here my card started with
Tim's Rays Stencil inking with
Versafine Clair Summertime and Cheerful.
While the stencil was still in place I added
a touch of Nuvo Solar Flare Shimmer Powder.
I then die cut my daisies and heat embossed with
Stampendous Chunky White Enamel 
to give them dimension. 
Here's a close up
Also added a touch of the shimmer powder.
Placed my die cut Kaisercraft vellum leaves 
then my flowers after inking the centres and 
 a touch of Nuvo Repened Pumpkin Drops.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations 
Fond Expressions 2 inked with  Colorbox Rose Gold.
Finished with inking the edges with Tim's Spiced Marmalade
and adhering to white card base.
That's it for this card.
You will see my other very different card pretty soon.
Thanks for dropping in.
