Just Us Girls #382-Photo Week



This challenge was quite simple and with spring coming, who does not like spring. The air starts to smell of warm rain, flowers start blooming and dragonflies and butterflies start to flutter. We are to use the above photo for inspiration. I decided to use Awesomely Artistic stamp set from Stampin Up!
The cardstock is real red, emerald envy from the new in-colors and whisper white. I stamped the flowers in versamark and used real red embossing powder. Then I stamped the leaves in emerald envy. I decided to use the emerald envy embossing powder on my dragonfly. With basic black I stamped the frame and friend, finally I added some rhinestones. Don't you just love it! I had fun with this challenge. Please play along at Just Us Girls challenge.

52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown

This challenge for February is a Technique



I have never did a card like this so I thought this would be a good way of using some scraps. I used Stampin Up's Candy Cane Lane DSP, red foil sheet, Cookie Cutter Christmas for the gingerbread man is in Baked Brown Sugar stamped with the same color. Card base is Very Vanilla and the sentiment is from Candy Cane Christmas and is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar on Very Vanilla.
 
He looks good enough to eat, what do you think?

February Team Shares




 For February Michelle sent us these elements: A piece of DSP Tasty Treats (double sided), a stamped image of an ice cream cone from Cool Treats and a piece of Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon.
The ice cream is done in Peekaboo Peach and Tangelo Twist and the cone is done in Crumb Cake. I added a Wink of Stella.

 
I used the new Carousel Birthday stamp set for the sentiments, stamped in black memento ink. The butterfly is made from the DSP. If you watched the video posted earlier you will see how to create the butterfly. It is not as hard as it looks. For the card I used Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz and Peekaboo Peach.

 This is the first card I had originally created but was not happy with it. For this card I used Old Olive and Mint Macaron. I created a shaker card and then on the inside I created a lollipop. I also used Emerald Envy ribbon and the swirly scribbles die cut image. Added a Wink of Stella and the sentiments are from the Cool Treats stamp set.




 Thanks for stopping by!
