Just Us Girls #548 - Trend Week

 It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Bobby has chosen to challenge us to create a die cut window.

Come on over to JUGS to see all of the die cut windows created by our fabulous Guest Designer, Lisa Elton and the rest of the amazing Design Team.


Started by die cutting the flourishy frame from some dark olive cardstock then rubbed some Peeled Paint Distress Oxide over the raised areas.  Used the Precious Moments image that was gifted to me and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  Adhered the frame over the image and then adhered to a card base.

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

Just Us Girls #545 - Color Week

It's time for Color Week at Just Us Girls and Cecile has chosen a beautiful color combo for us to play with!


Check out JUGS to see how our Guest Designer, Trina Pham and the rest of the Design Team have used these colors.


Stamped the flower from Stamplorations in teal ink on light gray cardstock and colored with a Prismacolor pencil and blended with Gamsol.  Masked the flower and stamped the little bud branches with mustard colored ink then used a gray marker to color the stems (the gray over the yellow looks more green than gray).  Added some clear gloss on the buds.  Added the big flourish from Kitchen Sink Stamps in Stampin Up Going Gray.  Layered onto some teal and onto a mustard card base.  Added the sentiment from Hero Arts first in teal, but didn't stand out enough so restamped in black ink.

Come play along with us and your 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 #544 - Trend Week

It's time for our Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Vicki has chosen a very trendy challenge for us this week!


Hop on over to JUGS to see what our fabulous Guest Designer, Trina Pham and the rest of the amazing Design Team have created.


This was going to be a one layer card until I embossed the floral image, so had to add a strip sentiment from Gina K.  Floral image from Unity using markers to ink it up then stamped a second time with Versamark and heat embossed with clear.  Used a cracked stencil and Distress Ink in Antique Linen over the flowers and rubbed off the embossed areas.  The top and bottom stripes are also a stencil using Memento Espresso Truffle ink.

Come share you long and skinny cards 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.

Since it is the first week of the month, that means a new Guest Designer her at JUGS!  Please welcome Trina Pham!  Come see all the Rainbows created by Trina and the rest of the amazing Design Team!


This started by swiping Distress Oxide inks in the colors of the rainbow then spraying with water to blend the colors.  After it was dry, stamped the sentiment from Reverse Confetti in Gina K Amalgam ink.  This has been sent off to my 96 year old aunt's boyfriend who is in an assisted living facility to try to cheer him up during this trying time.
