JUGS - You're so Fun - I just love you!


This card expresses how I feel about the challenges at Just Us Girls Challenge Blog!! : ) This is my last week as a Guest Designer.  I want to thank each member of the JUGS Design Team for inviting me to be a part of this talented  group : ) and making me feel so welcome!!



This week we have a beautiful photo for you to take inspiration from.  I love both the flower and the soft bokeh of this photograph.  I used vellum to try to recreate the softness of the green background by using it as the front of my card.

Making cards with a vellum face is not difficult - simply cut a 6 x 4.25" piece of vellum for the front of the card scored - then folded at .5" - tape it directly to the back of a 5.5 x 4.25"  card base.   Easy peasy.

For my card I used a sweet lime green cardstock back.  I cut a "Wavy Stitch Edge" border for the "ground" that I sponged with lime green ink.  I heat embossed my sentiment with Copper embossing powder.  Penny Black has the best Sunflower image on the market! : ) IMHO heehee which I stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Zigs - fussy cut out and taped to the vellum to completed my little scene : )

I would like to invite you to visit Penny Black's Simplicity blog where you will always find a selection of CAS creations showcasing the wonderful product available in the Penny Black Store : )


Before I go I wondered if you had heard about the Italian chef that died?.....  Yeah, he pasta away.

Beautiful work, Patti. That is a gorgeous sunflower and I like your tip about adhering vellum. The detail on the wavy die is lovely and that sentiment is fabulous. Terrific work. And groan on the joke. But really, I giggled. :) Have a wonderful weekend.

Blogger is giving me lots of issues today. I hope you got this comment on how I love the card you made. The sunflower looks so lovely against that light green background.

Hello, Patti! Sorry I haven't visited for a while but here I am! Your sunflower card is stunning! I love your use of vellum, and that gorgeous border works perfectly! I've not tried a vellum card front before - I don't think my vellum is strong enough - yours looks amazing!

Esta sunflower muy linda! Seriously, it is one of the better sunflower stamps I've seen and especially with your beautiful water coloring of it! Of course, do you know what you call a Roman with a cold?

Beautiful Patti! I love sunflowers so much! (I don't love pulling up their roots in the late fall or spring though, lol) They make me work hard!
Have a lovely day!
