It's Bold and Beautiful

 Hello and welcome to todays post for
Just Us Girls hosted by Vicki

I was watching This Video on YouTube with
Simon Hurley recently and as soon as it finished
as it was perfect for our Trend Week
Here's a close up

My stencil is Altenew Cheerful Bloom
and simply did exactly as Simon showed us
using most of my Nuvo Shimmer Powders
and fussy cut.
Added my STAMPlorations sentiment
heat embossed in gold.
 Added lots of pop dots and attached to
Crazed Paper I got from our Officeworks.
It was such an easy and quick card but
what a dramatic result! 
I am going to do this again but with my
Lindy's Magical's as I am sure to get
another dramatic result.
Head over and see the beautiful cards
the Team created and I am sure 
you will want to join in this week.
Add to our Gallery and you could be our
Chic of the Week and in the running to be
our Guest Designer in May.

#UPDATE Sending this over to 
without the twist
My simple sentiment says it all.
Thanks for visiting

It's an Oldie but a Goodie

 Todays post is for our  New Challenge over at
The Sisterhood of Crafters and we would like to see
those 'old tucked away neglected stamps' come to life again.
We would also like you to mention how long
you have had it in your stash.
I was lucky that Gina K had the year on the
sets I used. 

I knew that I wanted to choose some of Gina's older stamp sets
as these were some of the first I bought way back then.
They are Springtime Silhouettes 2011
and sentiment is from Whimsical Wishes 2012.
I found a card on Pinterest that used the Silhouette stamps
and I took my inspiration from Michelle Woerner's card Here
It's an old style layout but still lovely. 

I used old SU Going Places DP papers/ribbon
 and the SB circle die, 
even sponged inside the die like we used to.
Topped it off with some old Liquid Pearls
 to the centre of the flowers.
Attached to card base to complete.
That was 'so fun'
Head over and check out what oldie's the Sistah's found
to create with and we sure hope you
bury your head into your old stash and
add yours to our Gallery. You will be surprised
at what you find. I can hear you saying
I forgot I had that! Time to ink it up again.
Thanks for visiting.

Celebrate the Season

 This month at Christmas Craft Creations
we are looking for Slimline Creations.
I decided to go with the traditional size after 
watching Kristina Werner make This card

It's pretty simple really.White card base and
red to heat emboss my Large Christmas Flower
from STAMPlorations with Nuvo Gold Enchantment Powder.
Stamped the flower on scrap paper for masking then
blending Tim's Aged Mahogany around the flowers.
Also on the inside.
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations Merry.
Decided I would add some gold embossing
on the sides for even more sparkle.
Head over and see which way the Team chose 
to make their Slimline Cards -
traditional or mini size!
Looking forward to seeing the Gallery this month.
Thanks for dropping in

It's time for a New Challenge over at

For this Challenge I went with a Wintery Scene.
My background is a mix of Lindy's Magical's and
Iridescent Medium on the edges and
flicked for snowdrops.
Die cut my trees with metallic paper
and added in front of very lighly inked trees
from Tim's Great Outdoors.
Sentiment is also from the same set.
Punched a few shimmery stars and 
attached to navy card.
Head over and see what The Team created
and add yours to the Gallery.
