Just Us Girls #413 - Wild Card Week

This month has 5 Saturdays so that means that it's Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls and Nancy has a great challenge for us to use Word Die Cuts!

This is our last week with Linda Snodgrass as our Guest Designer and I would like to say thank you for joining us this past month with all of your creations!  Now, come on over to JUGS to see what Linda and the rest of the Design Team have made using Word Die Cuts..


The background was made by smearing Oxide inks on my kraft mat, spritzing and then laying a piece of tissue paper in the ink.  Let that dry, then crinkled it up into a ball, opened it back up and adhered to a piece of white cardstock. Lightly rubbed some Versamark over the raised creases and then embossed with gold ep.  Here is a You Tube video by Loll Thompson on this Tissue Paper Watercolor technique.  Stamped the hello from Concord & 9th with versamark on some purple cardstock and embossed with gold ep, then added some clear Wink of Stella.  Layered onto a piece of mirrored gold and a purple card base.

Pull out those word dies and play along with us this week and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would put you in the running for a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

  3. Wonderful background, Sue. I love that technique and have done it without the gold. Adding the gold border and sentiment really makes this an elegant card.
