Happy Birthday

Hello and welcome! It's color week at Just Us Girls where Vicki has a fun trio for us ~ blue, purple and light gray. We also have a new guest designer joining us today. TK of Time 4 Kards will be sharing her cards for the month of June! Welcome TK!

Determined to use some of my older stamp sets, I went way back and pulled out Beautiful Blooms II from PTI. After inking up and die cutting a few flowers, I arranged them on a light gray stitched panel. Next came a sentiment from The Stamp Market, stamped and heat embossed. It still needed just a little some-something so I added a few polka dots and dew drops.

Not go to colors for me, but I think I made them work and I had fun! We hope you'll join in the fun this week and add your card to our gallery!


Show Up and Shine!




Hello lovelies, I'm hosting this week's Just Us Girls challenge! It's CAS week and I'm looking for clean and simple cards featuring a silhouette. When creating my card, I knew just the little fella I wanted for my focal point!

Little cutie patootie Basil, from Lavinia Stamps, was stamped onto an ink blended scrap then die cut into a circle. I pulled out an oldie but a goodie Mat Stack image from PTI and added him to the center. I do see that my glue shifted a little, so I need to fix that! I gave his lantern some glow to light his way. I found the perfect Pinkfresh Studio sentiment to finish it off! 

I hope I've inspired you to play along with us this week!


Happy Birthday!



I'm super excited to be guesting with the talented Seize the Birthday team today as their surprise party guest! Thanks for the invitation ladies!

 I chose to use the topping for my card.

My 'pop' comes from bright colors and a whole lot of happy!

I started with a die cut arch (PPP) that I stenciled with some sunshine. Next came the MFT images. I layered them onto the tag with some grassy borders (IO). After adding this to my card base, I cut a fun Poppystamps birthday sentiment from red cardstock for one final layer of 'pop'! Cute, right?


I look forward to seeing what's in the gallery this week!

It should be fun!




Hey there! I'm up on the Poppystamps blog today sharing a birthday card. Pop on over to check out the details!


Adventure Awaits



Bobby has a fun challenge for us this week at Just Us Girls.
So many options in those photos!


My eyes fell upon the map when I first saw the photos. The map paper I used has a fun texture to it. After adding the shaker element, I topped it off with a sentiment from the same paper pad and a few die cut sprigs. The little compass is an oldie but goodie from DeNami.

Alrighty, what direction will this challenge take you? 

Wherever you end up, I'm sure we'll love it!
