Santa Sketch

 Great sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!









I've had this Santa image in my stash for a long time and I don't think I've ever used him.  Colored with Touch Twin markers, Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol and the smaller gel pens.  Embossed the sentiment in white and got a few unwanted flecks, so pulled out some white acrylic paint and splattered over the whole panel for a snow effect.

Thanks for dropping by for a closer look!

Just Us Girls #564 - Photo Week

 It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Cecile has chosen a fabulous photo for our inspiration.  


This is our final challenge for the year and our last time with Joyce Mehrberg as our Guest Designer.  Thank  you Joyce for joining us this past month with all of your amazing designs!  Come on over to JUGS to see how this phot inspired Joyce and the rest of the talented Design Team.


I was inspired by the present with the tree on it.  I used a Stamplorations Christmas tree die and used some black and cream striped paper.  Die cut a star from cream and added some Wink of Stella clear for a slight shimmer.  Stamped the sentiment from Technique Tuesday in red.

40th Birthday

 My son turned 40 and this is the card I made to celebrate that milestone!  The challenge at CAS on Friday was the perfect inspiration for this card.




Using a Concord & 9th Turnabout stamp for the background using Brilliance white and blue inks.  Stamped the big 40 with Memento Rich Cocoa and the celebrate in black on a kraft panel then layered onto a blue base.

Just Us Girls #562 - Trend Week

 It's time for Trend Week at Just Us Girls and it's my turn to hostess.  I am challenging you to do some no line watercoloring.  There are many different ways to achieve the no line look.


Come on over to JUGS to see what our Guest Designer, Joyce Merhberg and the rest of the awesome Design Team have created.



I made this for my 96 year old aunt who just lost her 98 year old boyfriend. Using Altenew's Peony Bouquet, stamped the outline image with Gina K Skeleton Leaves then stamped one of the accent pieces in Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick and blended with a water brush.  Stamped and misted the same accent piece in Distress Ink Worn Lipstick and blended again.  For the leaves Distress Ink Peeled Paint was inked, misted and stamped then blended.  Stamped the sentiment from Gina K in black.

Just Us Girls #560 - Wild Card Week

 There is a fifth Saturday this month, so that means it Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls and Angie is challenging us to use Word Die Cuts.

I would like to thank Karen Walker for joining us this past month as our Guest Designer!   Now come on over to JUGS  to see what Karen and the rest of the Design Team has created using Word Die-cuts.



I made this for my Grandson to congratulate him on an awesome undefeated regular season.  Stamped the background with an unknown grid stamp in black on red (his school colors).   Used an embossing folder with white cardstock, die cut it in a circle and colored it to look like a soccer ball.  Die cut the large yellow star and positioned behind the soccer ball.  Die cut the "congrats" twice, 1 white and 1 black, layered together slightly staggered and added some clear glaze on top then adhered to the layered banner.

Come play along 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.
