Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge
I would like to welcome Nancy Penir into our little group. She will be our guest designer for the month of November. So welcome, Nancy!
Lisa has picked a really fun technique for us this week - to use your stamps to make a background of words. Here's a link for a card Jennifer McGuire did and some instructions to help you get started.
Here's my card
Gina K. Designs Season's Greetings stamp
GKD Pure Luxury White, Kraft & Christmas Pine cardstock
The Christmas greetings are from numerous GKD sets and one Flourishes set
I had an idea for a Christmas background using a gorgeous Merry Christmas stamp from Gina K. Designs Stately Flowers 5. I stamped this all over a piece of GKD Christmas Pine cardstock using VersaMark, and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I love the subtle, soft look it leaves behind. The wreath is from Impression Obsession. I really love this die, but it is a bear to cut. You need to use the thinnest cardstock you have and many, many shims, but it is well worth the effort. Included with the die set are the holly leaves, pine twigs & berries. For this card I decided to use Recollections red pearls for the berries. I used 1/4" pop dots to give the wreath a little depth. They are strategically hidden behind the holly leaves & the bow. The bow is from GKD, as is, the cardstock. I used Pure Luxury White, Red Hot and Christmas Pine.
Stop by Just Us Girls and see what the rest of the Design Team and Nancy have come up with this week. We would love to see what you create, so come join in on the fun!
Just a reminder that Just Us Girls will be continuing the Guest Designer position. Winning Chic of the Week puts you in the running for the GD spot. At the end of the month, after we have all of our Chic's of the weeks for that month, the JUGS girls will decide who the Guest Designer will be. The Chic picked from the November challenges will be joining the team as our Guest Designer for the month of January.
