Off the Edge

Playing along with CAS-ual Fridays Off the Edge Challenge



Stamped the flowers from Concord & 9th, colored with Primsmacolor pencils and cut them out.  Added some Nuvo Crystal drops in lime green to the flower centers.  Stamped the leaves from the same set and colored in with Prismacolor marker.  Added the sentiment from Gina K and die cut with a scalloped edge tag from SU.  Added lime green dots to the scallops.  The patterned papers are a free digi from Mel Stampz.

Just Us Girls #385 - Color Week

It's Color Week at Just Us Girls and Lisa has chosen the colors Pink, Purple and Gray.  This is a beautiful color combination.



Nance Salkeld, our March Guest Designer is with us again this week.  Check out what Nance and the rest of the JUGS design team have created using these colors.



I have finally used these awesome flowers from Altenew.  The outlines were stamped in gray, the solid piece in pink and the accent layer with purple.  Stamped the hello in a slightly darker purple and die cut.  Layered onto a gray polka dot card base from Lawn Fawn.

Just Us Girls #384 - Trend Week

It's Trend Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has chosen the Trend to use a stencil.  There are so many things you can do with a stencil!


Nance Salkkeld is with us again this week as our March Guest Designer.  Come and check out what Nance and the rest of the Design Team at JUGS have created using stencils.


First I started with a chevron/arrow strip stencil down the right side using Multi-Medium (because I couldn't find my texture paste).  When that was dry, added some light blue ink smeared partially over that strip and then stamped a brush stroke over that in the same color.  Added a wavy chevron stenciled area in a darker blue.  Added the splatters, also a stencil in yet a darker blue.  Stamped the little coffee stain circles in the light blue and darker blue.  Die cut the butterfly from Concord & 9th from some glitter cardstock and enhanced it with some Touch Twin markers.  Added the sentiment from Altenew.

Come and play along with us at JUGS and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then make you eligible at a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Just Us Girls #383 - Word Week

Bobby is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls for Word Week and she has chosen the word "Geometric".  So many possibilities with this word.


I would like to welcome our Guest Designer for the month of March - Nance Salkeld
Wait until you see all of the creativity that Nance and the rest of the JUGS Design Team have come up with.


I used a hexagon stencil for my Geometric shape and sponged it with Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade.  Stamped the butterfly and sentiment from Gina K and then colored with Prismacolor markers.

How does the word Geometric inspire you?  Come and play along with us at Just Us Girls and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would then put you in the running at a chance to be our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Reverse Confetti Sketch

Using the sketch from Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try



I used the Reverse Confetti set - Color Me Happy.  Used orange ink for the background swash of color and heat embossed the hello in blue.  The blue polka dot layer is a piece from my stash printed from Mel Stampz.  Added a scalloped edge and layered onto a scalloped circle.

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Us Girls #382 - Photo Week

It's my turn to be hostess at Just Us Girls for Photo Week.  I'm about ready for winter to be done and the tulips to be blooming!


It's our last week with Michele Greenwood as our February Guest Designer and I would like to thank her for sharing all of her amazing designs with us this past month!  Now let's see what Michele and the rest of the Design Team have created at JUGS have created with this photo as inspiration.



I used a very old SU set of 2 step flowers and stamped with Altenew Crisp inks in shades of red.  Then to add some snow effect, I spritzed the panel with some clear shimmer mist.  Adhered this to the gray polka dot layer to portray the gray clouds that bring the snow.  Added a few drops of Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist.  This was really hard to get a good photo of so the tulips in the top photo look a little brighter than in real life.

Come play along with us and you could be chosen as our next Chic of the Week, which would put you in the running for a chance to become our next Guest Designer!  Please limit your entries to 3.

Michele Greenwood is with us again this week as our February Guest Designer.  Come on over to the JUGS Challenge Blog to see what Michele and the rest of The Design Team have done with this color combo.

Die cut the large heart, ran it through a woodgrain embossing folder and lightly inked with kraft ink.  Added the die cut heart strip and the sentiment, from Altenew.  The striped background is a free download from Mel Stampz.
