Just Us Girls #651 - Photo Week

 

It's photo week at Just Us Girls this week and isn't this a stunner?  Fall is truly on its way here in Michigan with falling temperatures, but our trees are not quite this colorful YET!

Carol Mc was my muse today as I loved her lifted, camouflaged panel - I had wanted to play with a new-to-me die set and an older set from Memory Box called Grateful Autumn - it gets a little attention every Fall.  Here's where I got started - by stamping the image on my card base using the lid of my MISTI! Taping down your paper AND the MISTI is very important here!


It was stamped again on a separate panel for coloring:



Then I used that new die to cut my panel before lifting it
up and aligning it with the image stamped on the card base.


This image never gets old - and I adore this Slimline Label set from Altenew!

Thanks Carol, it's my turn to say 'saw it had to make it!'

Bonus: it fits the Double D Challenge: Things that Fall! Pretty easy to see where my inspiration came from!

  6. Yay, you came back for another round! I love that you were inspired by Carol's card and your take on it. You have such an array of fun-shaped die-cuts. I have a feeling it's one of your weaknesses. Such a great sentiment and way to display it. All around a fantastic card. Thanks for playing at Just Us Girls for Photo Week. Hubby is in Michigan as we speak but may shorten his trip to be home for a possible hurricane. What are the chances the one time he decides to take a trip for pleasure, this happens!

  8. What a fantastic card, from a fabulous idea! I must admit I don't understand the reasoning behind stamping outside the Misti, but it makes for a wonderful card. It's also easy to see why you CASEd an idea because it's a great one!

  9. That is such a simple leafy stamp, Michele, but once you color, cut with the label and pop it up, it becomes a terrific disply of Autumn on a card.
