Just Us Girls #652 -- WORD Week

The ingenious Ina is hosting WORD week at Just Us Girls.  Ina would like us to think about the word SCRAP and incorporate it into our card designs.  I went a little overboard with my scraps. All the tree sections were individually inlaid with different papers!  

Lynn Jardine is our guest designer and so very talented! Please welcome her and check out her fabulous cards at Stamps...and your ideas come true!

Please check out the design team.  These ladies work hard to inspire you each week.  Drop by their blogs and leave them a little love. Links to the right.

Enjoy!  I am looking forward to your inspired creations in the galley.

Christmas Card Throwdown September Technique Challenge


The week at the Christmas Card Throwdown, we are making POP-UP cards.  I have never made a pop-up card and thought the challenge would be fun.  The inspiration cards from the design team were amazing. So I watched a couple of Jennifer McGuire videos and dove in.  The card is fairly simple, though it took a bit to figure out and make look "nice". Next time should be a cinch!

Enjoy.

Christmas Kickstart Challenge #66 - Home for the Holidays


This week at Christmas Kickstart, the theme is HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS.  I thought it would be a great time to try Purple Onion's Holiday Home, background stamp. One layer card with lots of coloring!!! I chose to add Santa and his sleigh, but no sentiment.  The coloring felt like enough to me.  I should mention that this stamp is huge and would easily cover a 5x7" card.

Enjoy.
