Just Us Girls #304 - Word Week

It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has us thinking about Autumn.


It's August and that means we have a new Guest Designer with us this week.  I would like to welcome Karen Bourke!  Come on over to Just Us Girls and see what Karen and the rest of the Design Team have created with this week's theme.


I think of sunflowers when I think of Autumn!  Stamps by Gina K.  The sunflower was stamped with Versamark and clear embossed then colored with Inktense Watercolor Pencils.

Now it's your turn to show us what Autumn makes you think of.  You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week and that would put you in the running to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Uptown Funk!

Fun theme at The Male Room - Song Title Challenge.



The cityscape is by Jillibean Soup and the rays are Tim Holtz.  I clear embossed the rays on yellow cardstock then sponged Faded Jeans and Black Soot Distress Inks over the top and wiped with a damp cloth.  Stamped the cityscape and colored with Touch Twin markers and added yellow gel pen to the windows, then cut it out and popped it up.

Thanks for stopping by!

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.
