Just Us Girls #414 - Word Week

It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and it's my turn to hostess.  I have chosen the word Light.  This leaves a lot of room for interpretation.  It could be a light of some sort or something that is light in weight or light colored.


It's a new month and that means a new Guest Designer!  I would like to welcome Karola Rehnstrom as our October Guest Designer!  Come on over to the JUGS blog to see what Karola and the rest of the Design Team have been inspired to create with the word Light.




The first card I went with something light - feathers.  Stamped the feather by  randomly on the card base in Hero Arts Wet Cement and added the sentiment from Gina k in the center using black ink.  Quick and simple!

The second card I went with a light (lamp).  All stamps are from Gina K, Concord & 9th and the stripes are a stencil.  Stamped the Inspiration Mosaic on the card base then masked off the blocks and stamped the pink polka dots and stenciled in the stripes.  Colored the lamp base with a Touch Twin marker and paper pieced the lamp shade which was stamped using a Concord & 9th falling hearts stamp.  A little time consuming, but fun to make.

Come play along with us showing us how the word Light inspires you 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.
