Just Us Girls Word Week Challenge

Hello my crafty friends and thanks for stopping by! This week, my card for the Just Us Girls Word Week challenge is being shared on a Thursday instead of Tuesday. The word for this week is ‘Hero’ which I find completely appropriate for everything that’s going on. I may have gone with the obvious option but I really like how this card turned out. Be sure to check out the challenge blog and play along!

For the image, I used a free digi stamp that I got from Polkadoodles. The stamp is called the Winnie Heroes digital stamp set , it is currently available on the Polkadoodles site for free! You get three different images along with a bunch of sentiments. I printed my images onto 110lb Neenah Solar White* paper. I then colored my images with my Prismacolor Premier colored pencils* I used Gamsol blending solution* to blend out the colors. I love using my Gamsol because it really helps with the shading of colors.

Once the image was colored, I trimmed it down using my Fiskars Wire Trimmer*. I also trimmed the sentiment down with the wire trimmer. I then cut down a piece of purple cardstock to 4″ x 5 1/4″, that way I would have a white border on the card.

I then took my 1/2″ Scor Tape and placed it on the back of the purple paper and my nurse image. I then took foam tape and placed it onto the back of the sentiment strip. After everything had it’s tape on the back, I applied them to my card base which is also made from the the Neenah Solar White cardstock.

Once everything was attached, I decided to add some bling! I used the Studio Katia Silver Foil Fusion sequins. I attached them using my favorite glue, Ranger Multi Medium Matte*. I love this glue because it’s very strong but you don’t need very much to get embellishments to stick properly.

Here’s the final product! I really enjoyed this week’s challenge, being someone who spends a lot of time with nurses/doctors/etc. I know that they are truly superheros for everything they do. I’m glad I’ve found a way that I can thank them. Who is your superhero?

  1. Every day I keep coming across more and more free digis that you can’t help fall in love with. This card came out fabulous! Love that she has an IV pole too. So happy you played along with us at Just Us Girls this week!

  2. It certainly is another word for superhero. Love the image and the touch of bling too. Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls, Deborah, GD.
