Just Us Girls #40, JustRite Stampers and Wplus9....Funky and Fresh Baked

Hi there!  Happy saturday!  Time for some sketch challenge fun with Just Us Girls and color challenge fun with the Color Que #5  from Wplus 9.  Just Us Girls has some exciting news....this week we are sponsored by JustRite Stampers!  They generously sent stamps to the DT and have provided enough product for TWO prize giveaways for Just Us Girls challenge participants!  Check out Just Us Girls for prize will be exclusively for those participants who use JustRite stamps on their challenge project.  Also, be sure and check out the JustRite blog for fabulous projects using JustRite stamps!

And as if the sponsor wasn't enough, we also have the honor of having Debbie Marcinkiewicz as our guest designer for the month of July!  I just adore Debbie's creations!  She will often put a shabby and vintage spin on her work and it just makes my vintage lovin heart go pitty pat!  Debbie also runs a wonderful challenge blog called the Shabby Tea Room.  Check it out for some serious eye candy!
Hard not to be inspired by the retro cool font of the "Fresh Baked" JustRite stamp.  This stamp is from the Homemade Treats Borders and Centers stamp set.  I also stamped with the image holding grooves of the 2 3/8 circle  stamping base in green and orange to create the circle with horizontal lines with double ringed border.  Cool!  I love all the options for customization of JustRite Stamps!

Now let's also talk a little Wplus9!   I used the super fun Funky Flowers set to create my own stamped background using orange, turquoise and dark brown inks.  Super fun and the images help reinforce the retro theme I was shooting for.  I also used bling colored with alcohol ink from Want 2 Scrap and a new cutting file for use with SCAL and cricut from Mari Koegelenberg called the Doily shapes set #1!  Be still my heart.  Mari!  You've made my day with these files...and I'm assuming since this is "set #1" that there may be a #2 on the way??  I'll be stalking you watching for it! ;)

I hope you will stop off and visit all of the Just Us Girls DT for all of the juicy details on their JustRite/sketch challenge projects this week.  You will find their names in my side bar!  Thanks so much for stopping by this week!  Now let's get stamping...there are JustRite stamps on the line!

I can SMELL the pie, fresh from the oven... It's cooling off on your windowsill {~ you know, the one where the photography magic happens!?!}... Kids are streaming in and out of the room, demanding, "is it ready? Can we eat some?" The more they THINK about it and LOOK at it, the hungrier they get... WAIT, that's ME! And I want some - now! "FRESH BAKED!" That's ringin' the triangle, all right! Perfect! What a super-terrific stamp and EXCELLENT color play to tell the story and pique the possibility of HOW fantastic the pie is going to taste... YOU are BETTER than Martha Stewart and a sack-o-spuds! This creation is a very "good thing"!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to join in the W+9 Color Cue - We sincerely hope you will continue to support our challenge in the future...........{!} hee hee

Dana this is just SO fresh and fun. I totally wondered if you had stamped up the "stamper" for those lines - what a great idea - love that. Your color pallet is so summery. Way to showcase the JustRite stamps. Have a great 4th.

Kathryn B said...

Well Dana this is freshly baked to perfection! Love the colors...the aqua pin and spoon are wonderful accents for your sentiment!
Happy 4th of July! ;0)
