Just Us Girls #536- Photo Week

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Bobby has chosen this fabulous photo for our inspiration!



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


I was inspired by the vase on the table and the pattern and colors on the chairs.  Sponged Distress Oxide inks on the background.  Used a cover plate die with navy cardstock over the background.  Used a couple of Gina K images and fussy cut them for the vase and cattails.  Tim Holtz word die from a piece of the leftover background.

Just Us Girls #534 - Word Week

It's a new month and time for Word Week at Just Us Girls and Nancy has chosen the most perfect word for us.


Welcome to our very talented May Guest Designer - Deborah Frings!  Check out the JUGS blog to see what Deborah and the rest of the design team have created with Heroes in mind.


Thank you to MFT for offering these amazing free digi images!  The doctor and nurse were colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol then fussy cut.  Die cut the big heart and layered everything onto some rainbow striped paper from my stash.  This was made for our local hospital staff in mind and will deliver it with some fresh baked treats to show how much they are appreciated during this stressful time.

Come share your Hero cards with us at JUGS and you could become our next Guest Designer!

Thanks for dropping by!

Sending Hugs

I fell in love with the sketch for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge!



This is also a fit for the Silhouette challenge at Addicted to CAS



Used a splat stencil and sponged Distress Oxide Squeezed Lemonade onto some purple cardstock.  Stamped the images from Hero Arts with black ink then stamped again with Versamark and heat embossed with black ep for more depth.  Stamped the sentiment with Gina K Amalgam ink in Obsidian.  Layered onto a Stampin Up Barely Banana card base.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Us Girls #533 - Photo Week

It's time to get inspired by Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has chosen a beautiful and happy photo for us.


Sadly, this is our last week with Cornelia Wenokor as our Guest Designer and I would like to say Thank You for joining us this past month with all of your awesome creations!  Now, come check out JUGS to see how Cornelia and the rest of the Design Team were inspired by this photo.


I pulled out some older Gina K sets - Ribbon Stripes and Spring Basket.  Using my MISTI, stamped the flowers on watercolor paper, then flipped in upside down and stamped them again.  Masked off the flowers and stamped the stripes in Memento Flannel Gray.  Watercolored the flowers with Inktense Pencils.  The sentiment got lost on the stripes, so stamped it again on a white strip and added it over a think black strip of paper.  Matted onto some black and onto a Dandelion Yellow card base.

I'm also adding this to Stamp TV April Challenge 


How does the photo inspire you?  Come share your creations with us at JUGS and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible for a chance to become our next Guest Designer.  Please limit your entries to 3.

Bleached Hydrangea

I had so much fun bleaching on my last card, that I had to do it again.  This is another one for the April CAS Mix Up Card Challenge.



First I inked up a white panel with various Distress and Distress Oxide inks.  Stamped the Gina K Heartfelt Hydrangea with Versamark and heat embossed with gold ep.  Bleached the flowers and leaves.  Added some chalks to the leaves and flowers to give them more depth.  Stamped the sentiment with Stampin' Up Vintage Violet ink on white and cut it out.  Layered onto a Vintage Violet base.
Stamping, heat embossing, sponging, chalks and bleaching.

Thanks for taking a look!
