Fun with Junebug X's 2!

Hi everyone! I have 2 sketch cards to share with you today. I just LOVE the new Basic Grey Junebug and Lemonade lines!! LOVE them! So today I decided to play a bit with my Junebug papers and matching chipboard stickers! So much I made 2 cards. Actually, I have made a new little rule for myself -to USE up my beloved goodies. We've all been there, get new stuff -ohh and ahh over it and then NEVER use it. Not anymore.

This first card uses some of the flower chipboard stickers. I found the white panels a bit too stark, so I added a scored line frame using my ScorPal. Gives it that little extra something. You can't see in the picture, but I also added some Stickles to each flower.

AND the more I played with my papers, the more I realized I could also combine this with Kristina Werner's color challenge #56: rose red, yellow, orange, blue and light green. The light green color wasn't as pronounced in the paper and stickers, so I also added some green rhinestones. Here is Kristina's color swatch, I got pretty close, didn't I?

My next card uses one of the cute birdie chip stickers. I think there are 3 in the pack, but I picked this little guy cause he is so bright and fun!! This time I tied the bow on the left side and used a white button tied with some burlap string. Again I used Verve's Circular Sayings for the sentiment. I love how versitile this set is, I almost never use them in actual circles -LOL!

Thanks for stopping by.

P.S. Check out the new Rob picture I posted! Man oh man, what a smile!

  1. These are both adorable! I know all about hoarding and not using things period...let alone use them up! Worst part is that my "incoming" supplies outweigh my outgoing, and unless I stop buying....well, you know the story!
