Creation Station Blog Hop - Outback Outwest!


Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin'! This month at Creation Station we are stamping Outwest, which is not my wheelhouse! ;)  So I decided to go for an earthy vibe and create something with the stamp set I had - 'Enjoy the Moment' from the January - June Mini Catalog.

Even when I'm stamping something that's not really my style, I add touches of my own style and feel like it helps to make it all good! 

I stamped the image using Early Espresso (which I'm not really sure I've even seen one of these in real life...). And then I added Pumpkin Pie Blends, just because I liked how they kept it earthy with a little pop of color! And I even gave a flick of color with the Pumpkin Pie Blends to the image after die cutting it.

And I always like 'Dimensionaled' layers - cuz that just helps every card look it's best! So between the Subtle Embossed layer and then again between the In Good Taste Designer Paper layer and the die cut I added Dimensionals!

Twine or ribbon really give an added touch. And I like to add some kind of sequins or gems - in 3's is a nice touch!

I've tried to be better lately about completing the inside of the card. So I added a couple coordinating stamped images and colored them with the Pumpkin Blends as well. And I also die cut it with the Stitched Rectangle die to coordinate with the front stitched die cut circle.

I hope you enjoyed your stop here! And I can't wait to see what's in store for us from the awesome Kerstin - 

See you soon,

Julie B
