Just Us Girls Wild Card Week

It is Wild Card week over at Just Us Girls
and this week it is..... to make a Tri-Fold Card.
For my last guest designer week I have made this card.....


I have never made a Tri-Fold card before, so again this was a challenge for me.
Die cutting, stamping and heat embossing, with a little fussy cutting to make this card.
I had fun playing with alcohol inks to infill some of the die cuts
and to use as strips of 'paper' for the folds.

Really hard to photograph with the shine from the gold mirror card
and the alcohol inks.....
I thought the tones of the inks reflected the art Deco look of the card.

I would like to thank the friendly, inspirational and creative JUGS 'team'
for inviting me to guest with you this month.......What an honour it's been.

These are the other four cards that I made this month, whilst guesting.
It normally takes me a week to think of a card let alone execute it.
So guesting was very much a personal challenge for me x.
Challenges I would love to enter......
Tic Tac Toe Challenge - I have gone with the centre, vertically....
Thanks for The Team Pick
Seize The Birthday - Without the Option
Addicted to Stamps and More - Birthdays

Just Us Girls Photo-Word Week

 I continue to be super thrilled to be the guest designer over at Just Us Girls.
The talented and creative Cecile is the hostess this week.
This weeks challenge is Word/Photo Week and this is my card......



I was inspired by the 'grey' pebbles and the 'You Matter' Words.
I embossed the 3D embossing folder twice.......
I coloured in using pencils and acrylic paints and then fussy cut one out.
Then ......popping it over the other one.
Silver embossing around the edges and the die cut 'You' sentiment.

I am new to 3D embossing folders and I am loving them.
You will find tons of inspiration at The Just Us Girls Challenge Blog....
Hopefully see you in the gallery.......

Challenges I would love to enter......

'B' in my card is for Blooms....
