Guest Designing for JUGS #347

Hi Everyone,

this is my inspiration for Just Us Girls second week challenge:

It is trend week and the technique is spotlighting. This is kind of hot right now - seeing it all over blog land. And it does look really cool and its perfect for all of us with limited coloring skills, like myself... 

I wanted to use this beautiful Technique Junkie stamp - got it in April at the Allentown stamp Fair. It was begging me to be inked up....
The sentiment is by Neat&Tangled. Added Bakers twine. 

Always wanted to do spotlighting?? Now is the time to do it! Can't wait to see what you create!

Happy Spot Lighting!

Cornelia!! I've heard of this technique, but I've never seen it used so beautifully! HOW did you do this? It seems you've used a circle stamp, but then colored, too? Tutorial, please? xx
Hello Cornelia: WOW!! this is simply gorgeous!!!
You have inspired me to give this challenge a try, your spot lighting technique is "SPOT ON!!!" Love the beautiful colors, and by the way, you are an amazing colorist, I'm in awe at all of your creations.
Thank you for the inspiration, I'm definitely giving this challenge a try.

Did you say something about limited coloring skills???? I don't believe it! Not from what I've seen...think you're a bit too hard on yourself. To me, You can do anything. (No, there is nothing nefarious about that statement.) This card just proves my's exceptional. Once again, your eye for design creates an extraordinarily gorgeous card. Love this spotlight technique and you do it perfectly.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre

Crackerbox Stamps - Sniff You First

   Hi Everybody,  Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. Affiliate links may be used in the links provided below. I made this card with some of the older stamps from  Crackerbox Stamps . It is a very simple card. I stamped the  Emu Adele  and colored it with Copics. Stamped the  sentiment  onto black card stock and heat embossed it in white. I wrapped some string around the card. Mounted the sentiment with foam tape. Lastly I added some splatters. The stamps I used: Emu Adele Sniff you first sentiment   I hope you liked this. Thanks for visiting! Happy Stamping! Linking up with: Sisterhood of  Snarky Stampers  - s=snarky
