JUGS2 Challenge & Sketch

DSCF5525

It's a dreary, rainy day here is SE PA, so what better thing to do than stamp!!!  My card fulfills a challenge and a sketch...the Just Us Girls Technique Challenge #2 was to use paper piercing, and some pink, and I used the Stamping 411 sketch SSC120 shown here:

ssc120

I pulled out a stamp set I don't use enough, Loads of Love, to make a sweet pink card:

I paper pieced the little truck on some DP from a retired Hostess pack, colored in my hearts with various shades of pink and added some punched out hearts and Melon Mambo ribbon.  Easy & fun!  I used a marker and my Stamp-a-ma-Jig to line up the words from the sentiment so I could use my Word Window punch to punch them out and layer them using the Modern Label punch!  Be sure to check out the JUGS blog and participate as well!  I think there may be some blog candy involved!  YUM!  Have a great Saurday!

  • Stamps:  Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Cameo Coral, Hostess Prints
  • Ink:  Melon Mambo, Stazon Black
  • Acc:  Stamp-a-ma-Jig, markers, Melon Mambo Polka Dotted Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, 3-Heart Punch, White Gel Pen, 1/16" punch, RR Brads, dimensionals

This is so pretty, LeAnne! I love the little lady looking out the window of her pink pick up truck! Your paper piecing is fantastic and so is the ribbon accent! So cute. Also adore how you highlighted the hearts with your white gel pen! Very clever :O)
