Just Us Girls Color Challenge......JUGS16 49

Mona Pendleton | Friday, January 15, 2010 @ 10:00 PM | , ,

Hi Everyone! Yep, it is Saturday already & that means time for another challenge with Just Us Girls! Thank you all who played along last week in our technique - stitching challenge! My goodness - Over 120+ entries with so many beautiful creations! Let's get to this week's Color challenge! Kristin is our wonderful Hostess for this week's JUGS16 Color Challenge & has put together this gorgeous color palette for us to create with:Here is my Valentine's card:For what it's worth, I think this color combination looks so soft & romantic together :) With that thought in mind, I made this gift set to accompany some goodies of sorts for my Valentine!
Can you believe I only used one stamp to make this card? That would be the "LOVE" image that came from an old SU set that dates back to the year 2000! For sketch inspiration, I played along with Mercy's awesome sketch challenge, MTSC56. To see some beautiful cards, be sure to visit Mercy, her DT & all the players entries! I bought this treasure second hand at a local stamping show a few years ago & this is the first time that I inked it up! Worked like a charm! Speaking of charms, I added the lock & key charms for a little extra meaning to my honey :)

Here is my Valentine's gift set:The MTME © Shutt-erfly template is so versatile & pretty, I thought I would make one to accompany my Valentine's card :) In case you don't know, all the MTME © Pretty Packaging templates are available in many different formats, making them totally customizable!As the saying goes, "BIG surprises come in SMALL packages!" I made this Shutt-erfly © simply by typing the following measurements in SCAL: 5.5" W, by selecting the "Keep Proportions", SCAL automatically figured the length! Amazingly, I made this little beauty with just ONE sheet of 12" x 12" cs! If you figure that out, that costs less than 25 cents to make! The assembles measurements are 2.5" W x 5.5" H x 2.5" D. Perfect for that special little something! :)Again, I used only ONE stamp on my gift box! The reason being, I used the gorgeous, whimsical MTME © Pretty Printables: Fluttering-by pink Definitions DP which speaks volumes for itself! I made the BIG heart tag using various sizes of Spellbinders Scalloped Hearts & Hearts dies. After stamping the SU "with LOVE" sentiment, I centered a Spellbinders Labels 1 die over the image & ran it through my die cut machine, rubbed some Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink around the edges, sewed on a little heart & attached it to the BIG heart tag with a brad.

I hope you can join along with Just Us Girls this week :) For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls & leave them some love:
