July JFF Challenge!

I feel like I have been lost in a hole somewhere (actually that is almost truth!!) since it has been nearly a week since my last post. Summer days turn from 1 into 5 almost over night. We have been digging trenches for our flower bed sprinklers in addition to finishing off our veggie garden box so we can finally plant our veggies into the garden and take them out of the pots on our deck!!

I am so glad you joined me today for another month of the JFF excitement. Every month the J(ust)F(or)F(un) crew collaborate for an exciting challenge using the same patterned paper and stamped image. I picked Chair-ished (created for PTI by my wonderful friend Lisa Johnson) and Julie picked this retro patterned paper from the Vintage Blue collection by We R Memory Keepers.

  1. Create card base, layers and die cuts.
  2. Stamp image and paper piece (using dimensionals in some areas). 
  3. Colour legs and outline using W-1 copic markers.  Stamp sentiment.
  4. Thread button and attach.
  5. Adhere all layers.  

Stamp Set(s):  Chair-ished by PTI
Cardstock:Dark Chocolate by PTI, Vintage Cream by PTI
Patterned Paper:Blueberry Hill from the Vintage Blue collection by We R Memory Keepers
Accents: Button by PTI
Tools: Nestabilities by Spellbinders, Copic Markers

Lori Craig has been working under pressure for CHA.  She may or may not be posting today.  Make sure to send her some love regardless.

Thanks for stopping by.  I do have some creations that need photographing so I hope to be posting soon.  On another note, I have an upcoming release and I have been working hard behind the scenes to get my cards done as my brother is getting married around the same time next month and things will be hectic.  So while you aren't seeing much now just wait until August ;)
