Just Us Girls


Here is what I did with this sketch using Unity Stamps:

I pulled out some fall themed paper from years past!  I colored the cutie owl using simple water colors (my current choice for coloring).

Friends with Flair Friday!

It's Friday and time for a little Friends with Flair Unity Style!  This week I played with a new Christmas set I just got.

Here is a simple card I made:


I used pop dots (SU Dimensionals) for the middle panels with the trees and sentiment.  I love the simplicity so easy to duplicate as well. 

That's all for now!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Just Us Girls challenge using more Unity Stamps!

Just Us Girls

It's time for a new Just Us Girls Challenge!  This week is photo inspiration week.  Here is the inspiration photo:



Here is what I did:


I grabbed at the colors and fall theme in general.  I had this cute owl embossing folder I wanted to use for long time so it worked out great with this.  The sentiment is an old sentiment from Unity Stamp co.

Just Us Girls Trend Week!


It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls. And we are pulling out the vellum this week!  I have to admit I couldn't find any vellum in my stash at first since I have not used it in soo very long!  I almost thought I would have to sit out of this challenge then I found the folder with vellum!

Here is what I pulled together last night using a cute itty bitty called "Grape Work" from Unity Stamp Co.


I stamped and heat embossed the image with white.  I colored it with copies from the back on the stamped image for a "stained glass" look.  The background embossing folder is from Stampin Up.




Be sure to check out what the Design Team did for this fun challenge:

Mixed Media Card Challenges


Welcome to August and another challenge with the Mixed Media Card Challenges! This month it's butterflies and gold! Here is what I came up with:



I used a stencil by Dylusions along with light modeling paste in the background. I sprayed it with a gold spray. I ended up with some light blue in the paste from the painter's knife I used but just went with it thinking it's a bit distressed looking. I heat embossed the butterflies (Unity Stamp Co.)
