This week at Just Us Girls it's Wild Card week and we are making one layer cards.  Here is what I did using Unity Stamp Co's kit called Little Tricks Halloween.

Trick or Treat BOO!

Happy Halloween Week!  

Today I'm up on the Mixed Media Mojo blog with a Halloween creation on a small canvas. 


I was able to take a few pictures along the way.  The base started with Ranger's Dylusion's paints applied with a baby wipe and using the small daubers by Tim Holtz. 

This BOO stamp I carved myself.  The black stripes here are by using a credit card.


I added some gel using punchenella


I used this old Unity Stamp and stamped it on pattern paper


This cute pumpkin is my own carving as well





I hope you like my spooky ghost Halloween canvas!

Just Us Girls Challenge


HAPPY WORLD CARDMAKING DAY!!!


It's word week at Just Us Girls!  This week Sue is our wonderful hostess and our word is Sympathy.

I always have trouble with sympathy cards and pretty much refrain from making them.  But here is what I came up with using Unity Stamps:
In the end I feel like it might be too colorful for a sympathy card but didn't have time to make a new one.

Be sure to stop by our fabulous Design Team and see what they cooked up this week:
