Just Us Girls #407 - Color Week

Our host Sue has chosen the following colors for Color Week at Just Us Girls:
I love primary colors.  They remind me of painting and that influenced my choice of stamps.
A WPlus9 Stamp set colored with Distress Inks make up the background. The sentiment was computer generated.

What do you think of when you think of red, yellow and blue?  Head on over to see what the rest of the Design Team and our guest designer Darnell have made using these colors.  We hope they inspire you to make a card for the gallery.  If you do you may be chosen Chic of the Week and have a chance to be our guest designer in October.

Addicted to Stamps and More #255

Isn't this lovely?  This is how the photo inspired me to make a card for Addicted to Stamps and More.
Texture paste mixed with Distress Inks was blended over a stencil from HA. The W&W word die has three layers of Hawaiian Shores cs.

We'd love to see how the photo inspires you.  Need more ideas? Check out what the Design Team has done.

Just Us Girls #406 - Trend Week

That's right crafters.  It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and our host Judy has chosen
There are so many ways to add shine to your card. The difficult part is in photographing it.
It's hard to tell in this photo but the Altenew flowers are embossed in gold and the kraft cardstock came embossed with the wonderful foil design  Here's another view.
Plenty of shine here but still not as great as IRL.

The Design Team and our August Guest Designer Darnell have some fantastic cards for your inspiration over on the blog.  Give them a visit and then make a card to enter in the gallery.  You may be chose Chic of the Week with a chance to be our October guest.

Addicted to CAS #117

Oops, I did it again.  I think I'm going to have to make that my theme song.  For those of you who already saw this card, I appreciate your comments.  You will be seeing it again because I scheduled it for the wrong date.  

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS and our host Barb has asked us to make one layer cards.  Those aren't my favorite but I'm beginning to do better with them.

This is another borrow from Michele - the flower from Concord and 9th.  I watercolored it with Abandoned Coral DI, adding splatters and the sentiment from MFT.

The design team has some wonderful CAS cards for your inspiration. If you make a one layer card and enter it in the gallery you may be the winner of a $10 gift certificate from Stamplorations.  Don't forget it has to be clean and simple.

I hope to see you there.

Just Us Girls #405 - Word Week

Lisa is the host for Word Week Challenge at Just Us Girls and the word she chose is
That's right.  Shower. Any kind of shower.  I used what I had and made a baby shower card.  I don't need one but when I do it will be ready.
I started with a panel inked with DOX in Broken China and cut with the SSS frame die.  I laid the SSS rain stencil over it and blotted with a wet towel. I'm glad the look is subtle because I just realized it's on upside down. 😞
I silver embossed the handle of the MFT umbrella. and added the tag and sentiment from My Craft Spot (closed).  Not my best work but I'm out of practice.  Being away from home has interfered with my card creativity.

The ever lovely and talented  Darnell is our guest designer this month and she and the rest of the design team have some wonderfully 'wet' cards for your inspiration.  Take a peek and then create a shower card of your own. You may be chosen Chic of the Week with a chance to be our October guest designer.
