Just Us Girls Challenge....JUGS3 36

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 19, 2009 @ 12:00 AM | , , , ,

Hi Girls! Can you believe today, is the 3rd challenge already at the Just Us Girls challenge site? This week, Dana is the Hostess & she has challenged us to create with this beautiful color combo for the Just Us Girls 3 challenge! Be sure to head on over to the Just Us Girls site & see what the other girls have created to get you inspired! As of Friday, October 16th there were 78 entries for last week's paper piecing challenge & 97 friends who have joined me & my DT girlfriends at the Just Us Girls site! Thanks to all of you who have visited the Just Us Girls blog & have signed along! I would love to see ALL of you over there :) Hopefully, we can increase our players & friends each week! :) These colors are for inspiration only, so use whatever similar colors you have on hand & I would love to see what you can create! Remember to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the Just Us Girls site! For my card sketch inspiration, I used this week's MOJO108 sketch! Be sure to visit the MOJO site & check out their inspirational creations as well! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Here is my Just Us Girls Color Challenge Ornament set:

I love how the PTI Pure Poppy just seems to POP off the PTI Aqua Mist!
The SU Delightful Decorations stamp set has a matching punch that makes it super easy & time saving to create with this set!
The Cuttlebug Ornament EF is from last year & it was one of those things I just had to have! Well, I pulled it out & used it for the FIRST time when I made this card! :) LOL

When I make a Holiday card, I am trying really hard to make a matching gift bag of sorts, so come Christmas time, I have plenty on hand & I am not scrambling! Papertrey Ink's My Timeless Template the Fold N' Go, designed by the fabulous Lauren Meader, is one of my favorite gift box templates! It is super easy to make & I love to decorate it! :)

As you can see, the front panel of the Fold N' Go is big enough to fit the same image as the card!

Ingredients Used: Papertrey Ink My Timeless Template Fold N' Go template Stamps: SU Delightful Decorations Paper: PTI Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, SU Very Vanilla Ink: SU Cool Caribbean, Real Red Sprinkles: SU Ornament punch, silver cord, PTI buttons, Offray ribbon, Cuttlebug ornament EF

Alicia said...

Love what you created! I just e-mailed a friend of mine that has this punch to see if I could borrow it until I order next week! I think this would be so cute with little pictures of my kiddos inside the ornaments! I really like this color combo too so I may have to think about this for my Christmas cards!

Kristin Bueter said...

Oh Mona...you always come up with the CUTEST stuff! I love your card and matching gift box! I really like the ornaments and the coordinating punch...I should have bought them! Aargh. There's still time though ;]

Oooh...just read what Alicia wrote, and what a fantastic idea to frame pictures with that punch! Shoot! Guess I HAVE to buy the punch now! LOL

Great job with the challenge! Love the embossed cream panel (I do what you did also...buy something I HAVE to have and then wait almost a year to use it), the cute ornaments that you strung and the gorgeous contrasting ribbon! These are just fantastic!

Isabel Jett said...

Your card and template are magnificent! Those ornament stamps are so popular but yours are the most elegant use of them that I've seen. Whenever I'm at a loss with what to do with a project or element I can always visit the Cupcake for the best inspiration!

I can't get over how beautiful this card and template is! You never cease to amaze me, Mona! What design talent! These are priceless! I have to get those ornament stamps! SU!

Gorgeous! Those ornaments are so beautiful, Mona! Great job!

Stampin' Pam said...

Well Mona - now that I've made it through the 30 entries I'm gettin' round to the DT projects and I have to say your card and gift box just totally rocked it this week girly! WOWZA - I love the ornament punch set and do, indeed, like Alicia's suggestion but the way you put this all together is just scrumptious. As always, your staging is perfect (sorry - I forgot and used that same card holder - it is SUCH a good prop - love it) I can't believe you have Xmas goodies available to use as props - mine are all in the basement still :-) Beautiful work - as always -hope your trip was fun and relaxing.

Mary Reidel said...

Great work Mona! I just got these SU stamps and love them but I never dreamed of using them as you have. I guess this would qualify as inspiration! Thank you so much. I hope you have a fun weekend!

MeredithS said...

Mona, you have created another masterpiece! That card (and the template) is so stunning! Wow, those ornaments are just beautiful! I love your stuff! TFS!

Mo Hernandez said...

Yes, this really is a masterpiece, Mona! Just plain gorgeous! Great job!

Carol Reisner said...

Mona, I love the way you used the layers and the embossing on this card and template. Also those ornament punches and stamps are divine! Great Job! Now will any of the challengers be able to measure up? :)

Laural said...

I'm glad to see that your DT challenge site is doing so well. This is a beautiful card to inspire those participating! So gorgeous and well staged and photographed. Amazing job!

You have been a very busy girl and I love it! Great job on this project. This should get things going for this 3rd JUGS challenge!

GabrielleH said...

All I can say is Cover of a Magazine! This design is stupendous! You really know what you are doing!!!

Constance said...

I think you create some of the most refined cards around! I just love this ornament set from SU. No real chance of getting it here in the UK any time soon but luckily several companies have similar fare! May I have permission to mimic your beautiful design?

Jen Johnson said...

Yummy! This card is scrumptious! I'm so excited because I have those SU stamps and punches and now, because of you, girlie, I have a plan! My family will be so impressed! Shhhh! don't tell them where I got the idea ! :)

SusanH said...

You probably know already that I'm a dead sucker for all of your template projects... And I absolutely love this project. Those ornaments are amazing and so is the beautiful embossing. Both of these are just stunning!
