JUDY WOODLAND - January 2015

Thanks Ladies for joining Just Us Girl's in our celebration!!

We can't forget our newest July Guestie;

LINDA BEESON




It was hard to get a good photo of this because the white is Gina K shimmer cardstock.  I die cut some leaves, hearts and a wreath.  Added some coral berries with a Touch Twin marker.  Embossed the hearts and the background.  Hardest part about this card was figuring out an ink that matched the coral AND didn't smear on the shimmer cardstock.  I ended up adding clear embossing powder over the sentiment and heat embossing and a few failed attempts.

Just Us Girls Trend Week

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and it's my turn to hostess.  I have chosen Stacked Die Cut Sentiments.  If you don't have any sentiment dies, you can use any die or punch and stack them.  Your can line them up or stagger them.  You can use all the same color or various colors for a shadow type look.


We have our amazing Guest Designer Ros Crawford with us again this week.  Come on over to JUGS and see what Ros and the rest of the Design Team have created.


I love these new Tim Holtz Crazy Birds!  I used kraft, cream and black cardstock for my stacked sentiment.  I lined them up for a shadow effect and then added some Glossy Accents for some shine.  I also added some Sakura Clear Glaze pen to the music notes.

Now it's your turn to stack up some die cuts and play along with us at Just Us Girls!  You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week which would then put you in the running to be our next Guest Designer for the month of August.  Please limit your entries to 3.

The Male Room Washi Challenge

There is a great challenge at The Male Room, to use some of that washi tape they we all had to have.



The background is an inked Tim Holtz stencil.  Added a couple strips of washi tape, die cut a circle and a glitter paper star.  Stamped the sentiment using my MISTI to get perfect alignment.  Stamped the guitar with Versamark on kraft then heat embossed with some blue ep.  I wanted a little more contrast on the guitar, so I colored the kraft area in with brown Wink of Stella.

Thanks for visiting!
