Just Us Girls #421 - Photo Week

Dear Ones~
This time it's PHOTO WEEK over at Just Us Girls, and our gal Vicki has chosen this wonderful mood board for our inspiration.

Here's my card:
I love these colors, especially for Christmas. I was drawn to the Nordic tags, because I have a couple of stamp sets that are spot on for this look. I stamped the background with a GKD stamp set by Claire Brennan called Nordic Winter. It was so much fun to pick the different images and stamp them in red and turquoise. Then I stamped and cut the label and did some more stamping on that with the Nordic Winter set and the GKD Fabulous Holiday Label Set. I love how this turned out.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Red Hot, Turquoise Sea and White Card Stock
GKD Turquoise Sea and Red Hot Ink
GKD Nordic Winter Stamp Set
GKD Fabulous Holiday Label Stamp Set
GKD Fabulous Rose Frame Stamp Set
GKD Fabulous Label Die
Marker's Mart Die of the Month for Ribbon
Stash Gems

With this post, my tenure with Just Us Girls is at an end. I am stepping down from the Design Team. It has been a great pleasure to be in the company of such talented artists, however life is getting complicated and I just need to step back. My most heartfelt thanks to the JUGS Design Team for inviting me to be a part - it was such an honor. I will continue to visit JUGS regularly, I will NOT be a stranger.

Please visit the JUST US GIRLS blog to see the wonderful examples that our November Guest Designer Trina and the rest of the team have made this week. And remember, if you win Chic of the Week in any of our November challenges, you will be in the running to be chosen as one of our 2 Guest Designers for the month of January!!   Good luck, and I hope to see you there. 

Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments!
They always make me smile!!

  3. Beautiful card, love the cozy sweater feel! And I agree wholeheartedly
    with Nancy....didn't want this post to come because we will all miss your wonderful creations with JUGS so very, very much. We will keep in touch in blogland, my friend!!! Hugs to you!

  4. So wonderful with those gorgeous colors and stamps you used on it.

  5. Your card is beautiful!! I love the colors and agree it looks like a warm cozy sweater.

  6. All your stamps play so well together, Judy, and you have created a wonderful Nordic card. I'm so sorry to see you leave our team. It's been a pleasure working with you and I wish you all the best.

  7. You are going out with a BANG here Judy. A beautiful interpretation of our Photo Inspiration. So many stunning details and Judy layers. Love it. Sure going to miss you at JUGS but I know I will see plenty more creativeness from you here. Purple Hugs.

  8. Well just gotta' say I LOVE this card!! I have a thing for the 'Nordic' look and have a little collection going myself. I also love the teal and reds together and this is a FABULOUS card!! Of course the 'mood board' is awesome as well!! I am sure you will be truly missed at JUGS, but totally understandable as I know how long just one card can take to make and it seems time goes by quicker and quicker making it hard to fit it all in!! Have a wonderful day my friend!!

  9. Ina said it perfectly! You are going out with a bang! Love the Nordic Colors that you chose from the mood board. Such a fun design. They will miss you at JUGS, but I know where I can find you at any time. So sorry for the late comment, I think that I finally have all of my supplies packed for the move. There will not be room for a toothpick in the car.
