Just Us Girls #325 - Trend Week

It's my turn to bring your this week's Trend Challenge at Just Us Girls and my challenge is for you to use metal/metallics in any way you want on your creation.  Some examples:  foils, charms, embossing powder, or anything else you can come up with.


Come on over to the JUGS blog to see what our Guest Designers, Vicki Parsons and Deepti Malik along with the rest of the JUGS Design Team have come up with for this challenge.


The Technique Tuesday Flourish was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with WOW copper embossing powder.  Die cut the sentiment with shiny silver metallic cardstock and also matted the sentiment panel with the same silver cardstock.


I had to make a second card.
It is so hard to get a good photo of metallic cardstock!  I stamped the Stampendous flourish with Versafine Onyx ink, reinking and stamping 3 times to get a nice coverage using my MISTI on copper metallic cardstock.  Die cut the Thanks from some embossed gold metallic cardstock and some black to give the sentiment a shadow effect by offsetting the 2.

Now it's your turn to come on over to Just Us Girls and show us some metal!  You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week which would then make you eligible to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.
