Just Us Girls Week 4 ... 3-D/Template Challenge

Welcome to the 4th challenge presented by "Just Us Girls"!

All of us here at the Just Us Girls challenge site are very excited & thankful to see so many returning players, as well as new players this week! We would love to keep that creative energy in motion so this week we are presenting you with a 3 Dimensional challenge! We would like to see you add a 3-D flower to your project!

JUGS4

If you would like to learn how to make a Tissue Paper flower, we've provided a how to / video tutorial right here:




So make your 3-D flower using ANY technique of your choice, attach it to your project. Let the fun begin!

How to play: You need to upload your project using this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Mr. Linky form at the end of this post. If you upload to online galleries, please also use the keyword or tag, JUGS4. After you post to Mr. Linky please leave a comment on this post.

Deadline to be considered for our weekly top pick called "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, October 29. All entries need to be posted to Mr. Linky by that time. "Chic of the Week" will be announced on the Just Us Girls blog post on Friday morning following the deadline. (You may still post to Mr. Linky after the deadline, your project just won't be considered for our "Chic of the Week" top pick.)

And now, "Just Us Girls" presents a little inspiration to get you started!

Blog Candy: Alrighty then, here is a little homespun offering from me! I love to make flowers using various techniques for my creations & I would love to share a little tin of these with a randomly chosen winner. Would you like to add some of my flowers to your stash? Join in on the 3-D/Template challenge for a chance at some Cupcake's Creations fleurettes :) Make whatever you like showing us your 3-D flower and don't forget to provide us with a DIRECT link on your blog or gallery to our Mr. Linky.

Easy Right? We can't wait to see what you create. Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls!

Beautiful inspirational example, girls! Great idea for a challenge. Mona's video is excellent just like her designs! Can't wait to give this a go! Cheers!

Sue Lelli said...

Mona, Congrats! I am so excited for you because you are so deserving! Your designs never cease to amaze me and you are always so kind in your comments! Your tutorial is FAB! Love the flower and can't wait to try it! First I have to go out and buy all the supplies. And I'll be out of town visiting my parents all week so I can't play along but in the future.....! I just LOVE the JUGS blog! You girls ROCK!

Kristin Bueter said...

Awesome samples, ladies!! Mona - you are such a sweetheart and professional. I LOVE the little tin you decorated to house your beautiful flowers! What a fantastic idea!! I see I'm going to have to barter with this week's winner also ;]

Lisa Kind said...

Great video, Mona...so professional! And girls, love your samples once again! Have fun ladies, playing our challenge! Can't wait to see what you all create! On with the flower making!

A Little Licht on the Subject... said...

Great video Mona! Can't believe this is only week four of this challenge site. You guys look like real PROS! Love it all!

Rosemary said...

Wow! Gorgeous, gorgeous projects ladies!! You gals ROCK! Have to find some tissue paper and see what I come up with!

1CardCreator said...

Congratulations Mona, you so deserve this. What a great design team! All of your examples are awesome and the tutorial was a real treat Mona. Thank you for sharing with all of us so we can all make our own now. Off to work on my submission! Thanks for sharing. ~Diane

Mona L. Pendleton said...

Thank you all for the kind words & thank you to all the DT girls for giving my tissue paper flower a chance! All of your projects look marvelous! I am looking forward to all the creativity that we are going to see this week! Have fun with your flower making however you create it! :)

broni (waterchild12) said...

My goodness, ladies!! These samples are fantastic! Mona, I'm so thrilled to see your how-to video! Can't wait to try this!!

buggin2stamp said...

Mona did an awesome job on the tutorial video. The tissue flowers are gorgeous and look so easy to make. I am excited that I have that die. So I can make some today. :o) I am off right now to play. Melissa (buggin2stamp)

Our Little Inspirations said...

Ladies, you've come up with an innovative and fun challenge this week and I had fun playing along! Thanks for the beautiful samples and thanks to Mona for a great video tutorial!!

vicki dutcher said...

I have NO ZIP ZERO tissue paper in my house - What is that! So, I did the crumpled dp flower trick ~ I have never done before either ~ Hope that works! Thanks girls for another wonderful challenge!!

Carla (cmsuto) said...

Thanks for another fun challenge, ladies! Great tutorial, Mona! I made one of your tissue paper flowers for my card. All your samples are beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration!

Gloria Westerman said...

At this time I do not have a die cutting machine (will soon) so I will have to use another method. Mona did a great job teaching us how to. Now off to my craft room.

Kristin Bueter said...

Oh Gloria!! We probably should have mentioned that paper punches work also! If it's too hard to punch cleanly through the tissue paper, try cutting a thin piece of cardstock with it! Hopefully you have a punch ;] Oooh...or you could cut your circles freehand and make the lines kind of wavy to give it that vintage feel. Ideas are just a-flowin' now!! LOL

Stampin' Pam said...

Well I'll be jiggered! What an amazing group of entries we have already. COOL - Mona you are fantastic - your video is WONDERFUL. What an inspiration. Thanks to all our players so far and to those who commented and are coming back with their creations - I'm SO impressed with all of our players and DT girls - YOU ROCK. Totally fabulousness from all of you. Pat yourselves on the back :-)

Gabby said...

Awesome challenge! I just linked mine up! Thanks! :)

I am really impressed with all the beautiful 3-D flowers that I have been seeing on the entries so far! Each one is a little bit different the one before & that is what this challenge is all about! Creating a 3-D flower using whatever technique you prefer! Thanks for playing along!

Martina said...

Thanks ladies for all nice words you leave on every blog and for every card and all the time you spend with it! It gives you the feeling that the work is appreciated!
Hugs from Germany!

Laurel said...

Thanks so much for the tutorial. I am a totally VISUAL person. I didn't have the supplies needed so I did my first ever 3d Dimensional using another method and I guess it looks like a flower, ha ha ha! I tried!

I'm glad I saw a post on Papertrey about this challenge site, I'm going to subscribe so I hear about future challenges. DT samples are lovely! I made a project that I posted today for a different challenge, but it definitely has a 3-D flower on it, so it fits!

broni (waterchild12) said...

Well, I did it! Thanks for another great challenge, ladies!

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

I must say that 3-D is not my real calling, but I did it and now I can breathe!

Melissa Cash said...

Thanks for the challenge and the tutorial! I had fun again this week!

Melissa Craig said...

Really great tutorial but I failed at it miserably! LOL The samples are fabulous and oh my goodness - what a prize!! Thanks for the chance, I had fun with this.

Linda L said...

Thanks you so much for the tutorial!. I loved making the flowers. I didn't have the same flower die but it still worked. The flowers remind me of the ones my Great Aunts use to wear on their hats. I love a challenge that teaches a new technique. Thanks!

redwasher1 said...

WOW! That tutorial was great and so easy too! Thanks. I posted my card with Mr. Linky. A fun challenge! Geri

Nancy L. said...

Great challenge! I thought I wouldn't be able to do it b/c I don't have any cutting machine, but then I thought about my scalloped scissors (that I haven't used in a long time) and I loved how it turned out! Thanks Mona for the tutorial and the Girls for all the inspiration!!

Sarah Anderson said...

Loved this challenge, very different and I enjoyed it :)

Marge said...

Oh, boo-hoo; I got home way later than I thought I would & then realized I had the deadline to enter all WRONG!!! Waaaaa!!! I even bought stuff to make my pretty flower with; maybe next time! ;-{

Faith said...

Oh gosh, this is so gorgeous!! I can't believe we can flowers like this with tissue paper! My mind is just spinning with imagination right now. Thanks a lot for posting this, very inspiring.

Anonymous said...

Mona - I finally purchased the die and made the flower. Surprisingly it turned out beautiful. I try so many things that do not work for me and I get really disappointed, but this is great. Thanks for sharing this with all of us.
