Just Us Girls Color Week



Lisa is our hostess with Just Us Girls this week and it's color week!  The colors she picked are aqua, pink and white.

Here is what I created using Unity Stamp Co stamps:


I stamped the image using Gina K Designs amalgam ink (available at Unity) and colored using Tombow markers.  Cut these flowers out and used Stampin Up dimensionals to adhere to card.

Come check out the creations of our design team:

Just Us Girls Trend Week


This week Bobby is our hostess at Just Us Girls and it's Trend Week!  She picked Watercolor Background for the trend.  This is a great one so many ways to achieve this.  I decided to use my Distress Oxides for my watercolor background.

I used a smoosh technique with my Dylusions acrylic block.  Basically you add some ink (I used Oxides) to the end of the block, spritz water and smoosh down on your paper.  I used Distress Watercolor paper.  My images and sequins are from Unity Stamp Co and the ribbon is Stampin Up.


I used this block.  Added color like you see here and spritzed with water.  Placed down on the watercolor paper and just pressed on it and lifted.


Be sure to stop on by our amazing design team for loads of inspiration!

Just Us Girls Word Week


I picked these yummy lemons from the July KOTM from Unity Stamp Co.  I colored them in using Tombow markers and used Nuvo Glitter drops on the lemons for some glitzy shine.

Just Us Girls - Anything Goes Week



Welcome to another Just Us Girls!  This week Vicki is our fabulous hostess with Wild Card week and she picked "Anything Goes"! I hope you will come play!  Vicki is even tossing in a prize this week if we get over 75 entries to the challenge.

With it being the 4th of July this coming week in the US I wanted to do a patriotic themed card.  This set was just released over at Unity Stamp Co and it's called Stronger Together. 

I colored the flowers with Tombo markers and added a few drops to the centers using Nuvo Glitter Drops.

Just Us Girls Photo Week

It's photo week this week with Just Us Girls and I'm the hostess.  Well you all know how much I love owls and this photo I found on Pinterest was perfect!  I hope you will come on over to JUST US GIRLS and play along with us!


The pineapple is from Avery Elle and I paper pieces it.  I grabbed the yellows and green, the pineapple and the owl from the photo! The owl and sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.  Pattern papers by Recollections and the cardstock from Stampin Up.
