Just Us Girls #639 - Word Week

 It's the beginning of a new month and it's time for Word Week at Just Us Girls and Nancy has chosen the word Mammals to inspire us!



I would like to say Welcome to our July Guest Designer - Fran!  Come on over to JUGS to see all of the Mammal creations by Fran and the rest of the fabulous Design Team!



I pulled out an older Gina K set and used the opossum image hanging on the branch.  Love the animals in this set so perfect for Hang in There.  Colored the critter and branch with Prismacolor markers and added some die cut leaves dipped into some Lindy's Magicals and lightly spritzed with water.  Layered onto some dark orange polka paper and onto a gray 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 at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

I pulled out my fun Pop Art Pineapples from Concord & 9th.  Stamped in pink, aqua and orange and added green stems.  Die cut the sunglasses from Lawn Fawn Pixie Dust cardstock, which is white and colored with Prismacolor markers.  Stamped the little flowers on the Pixie Dust and enhanced the colors with Prismacolor markers as well.  Stamped and fussy cut the sun to shine down on the pineapples with their blingy sunglasses.  Sentiment stamped in black.  Inside says Sunshine.

Just Us Girls #637 - Color Week

 It's Color Week at Just Us Girls and Elizabeth is our hostess and has chosen a very versatile color combo for us to play with.


Check out JUGS to see how our fabulous Guest Designer, LucieG and the rest of the amazing Design Team have used these colors.
I chose to add orange along with the red, blue and yellow.  My first thought when I saw these colors were either crayons or balloons and ended up kind of combining the 2.  Die cut all of the crayons and parts then stamped the sentiment in the open ovals.  Die cut some balloons from glitter cardstock and colored with Touch Twin markers to match the crayons.  The balloon idea didn't pan out, so I layered the balloons, hiding the ends to just have sparkly circles.  Added a few small circles of the white glitter paper because I had to hide a few spots.  Mounted on a blue polka dot background and onto a blue base.

Just Us Girls #636 - Trend Week

 It's time for Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Elizabeth has chosen a really fun trend for us this week!

Come check out JUGS to see what Lucie, our June Guest Designer and the rest of the Design Team have created with a moving element.


I started out with a plain white circle and used a really old Gina K Stitches stamp to stamp the stitching on the baseball with red ink.  Stamped the bam type image (not sure what else to call it) and colored in with a dark blue marker on some blue striped paper and the little poufs (?) were colored with white gel pen and then covered with clear Stickles.  The stripes on the background were showing through, so added some Black Diamond Stickles.  Stamped the bat from Gina K's Sporty Accessories, colored and cut it out.  Used a Wobble on the back of the baseball for some movement.


Come join us with your creation 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.

 It's time for Color Week at Just Us Girls and Bobby has chosen a beautiful color combination for us to play with.


Come on over to JUGS to see what our amazing Guest Designer, Deborah Wheeler and the rest of the fabulous Design Team have created with these colors.

I started with some Core'dinations Whitewash in a coral and used a brick embossing folder and sanding off the raised bricks to reveal the coral core.  Added some various floral die cuts in the colors from our challenge and stamped the sentiment in blue on tan cardstock.  Put it all together on to a blue card base.
