Just Us Girls #588 - Trend Week

 It's time for Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Carol has chosen a fantastic challenge for us, no stamping!


Check out JUGS to see what our Guest Designer, Fran Wing and the rest of the amazing Design Team have created without using any stamping.

I made this as a thank you for a very generous donation made by a patient to our ambulance service.  Started by printing the Star of Life on a laser printer and then foiled with blue Gina K foil.  Cut it out.  Die cut the heartbeat out of white and layered the white panel over red cardstock.  Adhered the Star of Life over the heartbeat.  Die cut the Thanks and heat embossed with red ep twice and layered over the center.

Another one using the same die cuts and another Star of Life which was colored with Touch Twin marker and gold gel pen.

And one using die cuts and rub ons.


Now it's your turn to play along with us.  You could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Just Us Girls #587 - Word Week

 It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and Lisa has chosen a fabulous word for our inspiration!


A huge welcome to our June Guest Designer Fran Wing!  Hop on over to JUGS to see what Fran and the rest of the amazing Design Team have created inspired by the word Kind/Kindness.

I started with a piece of subtly patterned paper and heat embossed the leafy images from Altenew - A Study in Watercolor with pearl embossing powder.  Then sponged on some Memento Bamboo Leaves and Olive inks to reveal the images.  Die cut the Altenew Tall Alpha letters for kindness from some green metallic cardstock and stamped the "spread" with Altenew's Perfectly Penned.

Come play along and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Just Us Girls #586 - Wild Card

 We have 5 Saturdays this month, so that means it's time for Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls and Angie has a fun one for us this week - Spots and/or Dots!


Thank you Jacinda for joining us this past month with all of your awesome creations!  Come on over to JUGS to see what our Guest Designer, Jacinda and the rest of the fabulous Design Team have created using Spots and/or Dots.



I used a fun stamp set from Unity to make this card for my friend who had COVID.  Stamped the little poop and colored with Touch Twin markers and colored the little heart with a Sakura Moonlight gel pen.  Added some black gel pen to the eyes and mouth.  Matted with some brown and layered onto a piece of brown and white polka dot patterned paper and then onto a brown card base.  Die cut the sentiment and layered onto a brown die cut circle and adhered at a slight angle.

Come play along with us and you could become our next Chic of the Week, which would then  make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Just Us Girls #585 - Photo Week

 Just Us Girls challenge this week is Photo Week and Cecile has chosen a very pretty photo for our inspiration!



Come on over to JUGS to see how this photo inspired our Guest Designer, Jacinda and the rest of the JUGS Design Team.



I was obviously inspired by the 2 pretty daisies along with the burlap and twine.  Daisies are from Gina K colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and die cut with coordinating dies.  Stamped the background in black onto white cardstock with Dotted Fill-in stamp set from Concord & 9th..  The kraft strip is stamped with an old Stampin Up Burlap background stamp in Memento Rich Cocoa.  Added some bits of twine and layered onto a kraft card base.

Come play along with us and you could become our next Chic of the Week, which would then put you in the running at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Just Us Girls #584 - Color Week

 It's time to have some fun with colors at Just Us Girls for Color Week!  Look at these awesome colors Maria has chosen for us to create with.


Come on over to JUGS to see how our Guest Designer, Jacinda and the rest of the talented Design Team have used these colors.


A fairly simple creation using Core'dinations glitter paper to die cut the balloons.  Used glue dots to attach the die cut strings, then tied them together with some yellow baker's twine.  Die cut the sentiment 3 times and glued together.  Put it all together onto some blue and white polka dot paper and adhered to a yellow card base.

Come share your creation with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Masculine Monochromatic

 Playing along with Cardz 4 Guyz - Monochromatic



And following the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches



Using stamps from Gina K, Mudra and Stampin Up.  Inks used Memento Desert Sand, Rich Cocoa and Espresso Truffle.  Kraft card base and an almost one layer card.  I first stamped the sentiment directly onto the base, but didn't like it, so stamped onto some ivory cardstock, cut it out and adhered on top of the original sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
