Just Us Girls Color Challenge......JUGS12 39

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, December 19, 2009 @ 5:25 PM | , , ,

Hi Everyone! Thanks to all of you got their hands dusty & played along with the Chalkboard technique challenge! This week Tracey is our lovely Hostess for the Just Us Girls Color Challenge!
Here is my LOVELY :) Flower Garden card that I made using this YUMMY color combo:I was at my local craft store the other day, browsing around & I found this cute BE MY VALENTINE stamp made by Stampabilities! How Swwweeeet is that? :) To make my card I inked up my new LOVELY stamp with VersaMark ink & embossed with white embossing powder. I repeated this with a SU heart image stamp for my background.

This is my LOVELY :) Flower Garden gift set surely to please my SWEETHEART :)I made a coordinating gift box using the FREE My Time Made Easy Cutesy Cover Pretty Packaging template available NOW for download at the My Time Made Easy store. Since the MTME templates are available in multiple cutting formats, I was able to use my Cricut Expressions to cut 2 various sizes of the MTME Cutesy Cover boxes. The larger of the 2 measures 3 3/4" W x 5" H & the smaller one measures 2" W x 2.5" H. These boxes make a perfect sized box for any ocassion!(Note: you can rotate this image 360 degrees by doing the following... Within the photo, click and drag your mouse pointer to the left or right to spin the box! You can also use the left and right arrows on your keyboard or use the left and right arrows icons. You can also zoom in or out to get a better view of the box by using the (+) and (-) icons. Lastly, you can simply press the Play icon (circular arrow) to rotate the box automatically. Give it a try!)





I love the multi-platform cutting format files available for the MTME templates because you can size the template to fit your needs with just a few clicks of a button on your personal electric cutting machine! TOTALLY CUSTOMIZABLE! This flower garden is bloomin' with LOVE! :) To make all these hearts, I used several tools: Fiskars Scalloped punch, Spellbinders Scalloped Heart & Heart dies & Cuttlebug heart dies. For little accents pieces, I sewed on several buttons.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge #117, MOJO117. If you haven't already, you should visit the MOJO girls & see what samples of inspiration they have to offer!

I hope you can color your palette with the BRILLIANT colors that Tracey has selected & join along in the fun this week with Just Us Girls :) For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls blogs to see how they created their project! Thanks for looking! We look forward to seeing what you make with these colors!

OMG, Mona! How in the world did you think up the fab idea of adding hearts and buttons to these button bits flower stems?! That is such a clever idea and it looks fantastic!! What can I say about your stitching other than it's perfection each and every time! Come teach me in Northern VA, PLEASE!!! Yes, we have like 12 inches of snow right now and it keeps right on snowing, BUT, I'll make you a nice latte and put you up in a Hawaiian themed guest bedroom! LOL
