It's time for Color Week at Just Us Girls and Carol has chosen a very fun challenge for us.


Come on over to the JUGS blog to see what our Guest  Marlena McDeavitt and the rest of the amazing Design Team have created with this color palette.


Playing with my large alpha stamps again and so easy to line up using my MISTI.  The background is a Turnabout stamp from Concord & 9th using 3 shades of blue.. The diaper pins are from a Gina K set, Oh Baby!, I cut them out and clipped then together.

Now it's your turn to come play along with us!  You could be chosen as 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 #491 - Trend Week

It's time again for our Trend Week Challenge at Just Us Girls and and our girl Bobby has chosen Texture Paste!


Once again, we have our talented June Guest Designer Marlena McDeavitt with us.  Hop on over to the JUGS blog to see how Marlena and the rest of the amazing Design Team have used Texture Paste in their creations.


I just recently got my hands on some of the new Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel and this was the perfect opportunity to crack it open,  I had this dragonfly stencil that I purchased at a local craft store and used the Glitz Glitter Gel in black on some turquoise cardstock.  I had the striped foiled panel which was foiled with Gina K turquoise ThermoWeb foil.  Matted the two panels with black.  Stamped the sentiment from my very first Gina K set which I don't remember the name of, but thought the sentiment was perfect for a graduation card.

Just Us Girls #490 - Word Week

It's time for Word Week at Just Us Girls and it's my turn to be hostess of this challenge.  Since I have been digging through all of my older stamps and supplies the word Retro came to mind.


Since this is the first week of the month, that means a new Guest Designer!  I would like to welcome, Marlena McDeavitt who is joining us for the month of June!  Come on over to JUGS to see all of the Retro creations by Marlena and the rest of the amazing Design Team.


Using an old Gina K set, So Groovy, paper pieced the bus with some DCWV retro paper.  Stamped the background with the flowers and peace signs from the same set.  Matted the image and adhered to the base.  Stamped the sentiment in black.

Just Us Girls #489 - Photo Week

Vicki has chosen this fantastic photo for our Photo Week challenge at Just Us Girls.  Rainbows are so trendy right now!


I would like to thank Eva Dobilas for joining us this past month as our Guest Designer with all of her amazing designs!  Come check out the JUGS blog to see all of the beautiful rainbows by Eva and the rest of the talented Design Team.


Playing with a new to me set from Unity!  Stamped the image on watercolor paper and used Inktense pencils to color with a waterbrush.  When dry, added some sparkle to the paint stripes with some Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone.  Tried the Jennifer McGuire technique of using a baby wipe and reinkers for the rainbow background on watercolor paper.  Added a piece of rainbow striped patterned paper to the card base.  Stamped the sentiment and die cut with a circle die and cutting off the top and bottom.

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

Just Us Girls #488 - Color Week

Maria has chosen an awesome idea for our Color Week Challenge at Just Us Girls!  This photo is beautiful and you can choose any 3 colors from the photo to create with.


Hop on over to the JUGS blog to see what Eva Dobilas, our Guest Designer along with the rest of the Design Team have created by picking 3 colors from this photo.



Digging into my older stamps once again and found this 2 step set from Stampin Up.  I used yellow and pink Distress Oxide inks and a green Distress Ink on Gina K Ivory cardstock.  Stamped the sentiment in a dark green ink, die cut the oval and layered onto yet another oldie, a ribbon slider die cut and added a strip of yellow cardstock.  Added a few tiny dots of Nuvo drops in yellow.

Just Us Girls #487 - Trend Week

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Nancy has chosen a very Trendy challenge for us this week!


We have with us again this week our May Guest Designer - Eva Dobilas!  Check out the JUGS site to see how Eva and the rest of the amazing Design Team have used Bold Letters.


I pulled out some very old SU alphabet stamps to make this masculine birthday card.  Lined the letters up on my MISTI leaving a space for the second P.  Stamped in black ink on the polka dot patterned paper, but wanted it darker so stamped again with Versamark and heat embossed with clear ep.  Stamped the "birthday" on black cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with white ep.  Layered onto some black and white grid paper and onto a kraft card base.  Now that my alphabet stamps have made their way onto my desk, you can bet there will be more use of them :)

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