Hi Ladies! Thank you for all of you who played along last week with the Just Us Girls technique challenge & for your support with my blog :)
Are you ready to color your world with Just Us Girls?The Lovely Lisa is our Hostess this week & she chose to color our palettes with Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie & Really Rust (or similar colors)! With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I saw this color combination fitting for the occasion. I sure hope you can join along with this week's Just Us Girls color challenge! For complete details & to see what the other DT girls have made, please visit the JUGS site. Be sure to visit each of the DT members personal blogs as well, for their complete project instructions! I can't wait to see how you use this beautiful color combo! Be Sweet!
Here is my Give Thanks card:
To make the background paper, I inked up my brayer with SU Bashful Blue ink & applied it directly to the Cuttlebug EF, slipped the piece of SU Natural's Ivory in, then ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot Express & MAJIC! A two-toned piece of embossed paper! I am giving my sewing machine a great workout these days :) To make the pumpkin, I heat embossed a stamped PTI image, then punched & layered 5 ovals punched from an EK Success Oval punch. I sponged a lil' Ranger/Tim Holtz Antique Photo ink for a vintagey look :)
Using a sponge dauber dabbed in Ranger/Tim Holtz Antique Photo ink, I was able to tone down the Pumpkin Pie cs making it a little more subtle.
