Just Us Girls DT Try Out

They are having a Design Team call for Just Us Girls and this is my entry.  The challenge is to make an item using a template and a card using the sketch they provided.  I used Sending Sunshine from Gina K Designs for my card and Slip Cover box template from My Time Made Easy. I have all of the supplies used listed below.


For the images on both the card and the box I started by stamping the daffodils and coloring them with copics.  Then I masked them and using post it notes I masked off for the horizon and sponged the sky and then flipped the post its and sponged the ground.  The foliage was added last by inking with bamboo leaves and stamping off two times before stamping on my image panel.  The butterflies were added last and inked with danube blue and stamped off twice before stamping on the image panel.

The template for the slider box can be found here at My Time Made Easy.  Wow if you have never tried one of these templates you should.  The download is very fast and easy, plus they are very reasonable priced.  The box was fast and easy to put together.  All I did was add the stamped panel and some ribbon with a button accent. Thank you for stopping by.

I am also entering this card and box into a few challenges. First for Clearly i Stamp to create a project using flowers.  The second challenge is for Gina's inspiration challenge on StampTV.  Finally for the Speedy the Cats Friends challenge #2 over on  Mark's Finest Papers, to use a corner punch on your card.
