Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #492, where I'm thrilled to be hostess for this week's Colour Challenge. I'm inviting you to select a favourite colour and feature it in Light, Mid and Dark tones. You may want to use two tones of one colour...totally fine by me...because that's what I did *grin*
I have a 'thing' for Concord & 9th turnabouts, so this go round (sorry...pun not intended), I played with the Wreath version. The first uses a sentiment from the stamp set; the second, dies from You're My Happy. A bit hard to see the letters in the photo but...they're clear in real life and the paper matches my light blue inks...
Over to you...
Looking forward seeing your Light/Mid/Dark colour creations in the gallery!
Soooo...I'm having a bit of...okay, okay, a major...addiction to Concord & 9th turnabout stamps. This is one of a few cards I made featuring the Lovely Blossoms stamps/dies set. So easy to make pretty backgrounds with these...and to all who drop by my blog: YOU are lovely!
Please visit my teammates; their creations are wonderful and, if you have a moment, leave them some love. I know they'll be thrilled!
Looking forward to seeing your Anything Goes with Dies cards/projects in the gallery!
Masculine or feminine, these pop/comic book art stamps/dies cover anybody and everybody! Timeless and trendy, indeed!
My dad passed away four years ago, so no Father's Day card for him, BUT, I do have my wonderful brother - who is an awe-mazing dad to my niece and nephew - to celebrate! I wound up making two cards, pairing the various Explosions stamps/dies with the Lawn Fawn reveal wheel dies. Such fun and easy to put together.
The BAM is one card; the WOW, the other. I took two photos of each, so you can see the four sentiments I used. Haven't decided which one I'll send to my brother...perhaps one for him and the second for my delightful nephew!
As usual we have our GIVEAWAY, so be sure to comment along the hop for your chance to win a £25 eGift Certificate code to spend over on the Uniko website. You have until midnight BST Saturday 15th June 2019 to comment along the hop.
I created a rainbow (hey...what a surprise! Me and rainbow!) of hearts, using Studio Katia's Mosaic Hearts stencil. Over top, a healthy helping of Moonstone glimmer gel...sooooo sparkly! The heart/hugs are also from Studio Katia. Should have made a few more while I had the stencil out. Oh well...just means I have to play with this technique/stencil/dies again *grin*
Over to you...
Looking forward seeing your TEXTURE PASTE creations in the gallery!
Welcome to the new challenge atTag You're It!, where our lovely, talented Donna has selected this fabulous umbrellas photo as our inspiration
Theme Challenge: Umbrellas
I have one umbrella die, but the two of us don't really see eye to eye sooooo...I went in a slightly different direction in creating an umbrella, drawing inspiration from Ardyth, of MASKerade fame. You can see her lovely rainbow umbrella here. Since I have a bundle of rainbow bits from previous cards, I decided to match a few up (size-wise, rather than proper ROYGBIV) and design one of my own...complete with sunshine and clouds!
That's it from me; please check out the amazing tags designed by my teammates, then bring your Umbrellas inspired tags to the gallery!
How fortunate that I actually have mahogany ink in my collection: Aged Mahogany distress ink, to be precise! Yayyy! I paired it with Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick, to create a clean, simple card using the Old Rose Prints stencil and a sentiment from Frames and Flowers. A bit of glitter added to the roses and...voila! CAS card with the twist!
Hope you'll play along with us this month and fill the gallery with your CAS creations! Just a reminder about our friendly rules:
Create a clean and simple card with or without the optional color twist.

Please display the challenge graphic in your post (if linking from your blog) and link back to the challenge post (not just the main blog) in order to be eligible to win (and receive the corresponding prize).
Finally welcomed Pinkfresh Studio's Train Ride into my collection and oh my stars! So much fun and so many delightful details (like the notches in the dies for the bear's paw, the reindeer's lollipop and the conductor bear's scarf)! I had a blast fiddling with the stamps and dies to make my little locomotive of Christmas wishes! Definitely replicating this many times over! Too cute to resist!
That's it from me; please head over to the blog to see how my talented teammates interpreted this month's theme.
Looking forward to seeing your Christmas cards in the gallery!
Soooo...my interpretation of this photo took several twists-and-turns, until I realized that...yes, rainbow colours do present! Once I figured that out, putting my card together was a snap! A sunny sun, some stenciled clouds (I focused on one cloud, shifting it there and there to achieve a puffy clouds sky) and some rainbow patterned paper for the triple-cut, stacked CUTplorations phrase. Rainbows make me happy!
Not a lot of laugh-out-loud stamps in my collection, but this sentiment from Ink Road Stamps does make me smile...mainly because it's so true, given our little Lily! Paw prints embossed background and MFT Paw Prints Die-namics and Polaroid Frame...easy peasy!
That's it from me; please head over to the blog to see how my talented teammates interpreted this month's theme. A reminder that we're looking for CAS designs.
This month, we're delighted to welcome Milla from Mustesormi as our guest designer. You may know her as one of the designers at The Flower Challenge and one of the Simplicity Sisters at Penny Black Stamps Her talents are impressive!
New Picket Fence Studio products in my collection; isn't this shopping gal a delight! Paired her with stripes using MFT skinny strips and ta dahhhh....done! I think everyone needs to spoil themselves a little (or a lots) bit today...and every day!
My wonderful teammates have interpreted the prompt in clever, inspiring ways; please visit and leave them - and Milla - some love, which I know will be deeply appreciated:
Happy June 1st! Can you believe it! We've shifted from winter weather to fire/smoke season in the span of two weeks. Currently, fires in northern Alberta are raging, leading to significant evacuations and air quality issues that span as far as Minneapolis and Detroit. Right now, our air quality index is 10+ which, translated, means stay inside! I'm schedule to officiate a mountain bike race this weekend...guess we'll see if that comes to fruition.
ANYWAY, welcomes to Just Us Girls Challenge #490~Word Week, where our lovely Sue invites us to go RETRO with our cards/projects. Colours, images...whatever you have that throws us back in time!
Hello, Welcome to my Uniko Studio DT showcase, where I bring out a few of my Uniko Studio products to give them some extra love. Many of you, I'm sure, have seen the new 'trend' of pairing coloured backgrounds with focal images left black-and-white. I decided to create a pair of *Anti-Colouring cards*, as coined and inspired by Carissa from Sprinkled with Glitter. These were a joy to make, especially since the delicate lines and details of the English Country Garden butterfly and Originally Organic stylized florals stand beautifully just as they are. I paired these pretties with a rainbow version of Background Blocks: Mid-Century Modern 1.
