Just Us Girls #436 - Trend Week

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls, a time to create using one of the current trends we are seeing all around Blogland!  Lisa is our hostess this week and she has chosen the ever trendy Black and White Stripes!


Come on over to the JUGS Blog to see what Karren Johnson, our April Guest Designer and the rest of the amazing Design Team have created using Black and White Stripes!


I paired the beautiful peonies from Altenew with the black and white bold strripes and stamping the sentiment directly onto one of the white stripes.  The card base is Apricot Appeal from SU.


I just had to make a second card using the black and white stripes.  I love this Gina K set, Lots of Lines.  Stamped the 3 squares onto white and added a bolder striped piece along the edge,  The leaves are a die cut from green vellum, left in the die and inked with Versamark and then heat embossed white green ep.

Come play along with us 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.
